  1. If you don't see it, then there is none. you can call up the school to confirm..
  2. Do you have an offer now? Is your offer "conditional' or not? If it is not conditional then it is unconditional. An undergrad degree is NOT a requirement for many if not all law schools in Canada
  3. Can you specify which US schools you are talking about? School that excludes the worst 12 units is not looking at "trend". the 12 units could be your last 12 units
  4. Experience of moving across the world may turn out to be a nightmare Your best friend will still be your best friend no matter where you are. my best friends are in the States. Two years as oppose to three ? well... NCA will more than make up the one year difference and other hurdles you will face if you want to practice in Canada are unpredictable.
  5. I think under 16 in my L1. My friend got 8.0 and was around 5% and ranked 16.
  6. Ottawa put more emphasis on GPA
  7. I had both and I can confirm 2012 L1 only.
  8. do you qualify for mature category?
  9. Ottawa close to 100% Ottawa French common Law - 100%
  10. are you still waiting for another Ontario school? I think the "provisionally accept" option is over for Ontario Schools.
  11. 160+ will get you in many schools.
  12. what is your GPA, L2 and B2?
  13. Did you post your GPA, B2 and L2. Mature Category? how long did you work after graduation and how old? Access ? What is your basis?
  14. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of bursaries from OZ.
  15. OLSAS says P/F are not counted. see my post above https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/olsas-gpa-calculations/
  16. 8.0 was top 5% in 2012
  17. It took me more than 15 seconds to find this out https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/olsas-gpa-calculations/ Using the Conversion Table OLSAS uses a 4.0 scale. Refer to the OLSAS Undergraduate Grading System Conversion Table to determine the grading scale used for each university that you attended/are attending. The law schools equate university work on the basis of the Ontario traditional academic year system. For universities operating in the semester system, 2 semesters are combined as the equivalent of an academic year (i.e., semesters 1 and 2 are combined for first year; semesters 3 and 4 for second year). Co-op semesters are grouped similarly. Note: Each law school may use a different GPA than is calculated by OLSAS in the undergraduate academic record, based on its own admission criteria. Refer to the requirements section for each law school in the OLSAS application for more information. Where both letter and percentage grades are reported on the transcript, the percentage grade will be used, with the exception of the University of British Columbia, for which letter grades will be used. All courses and marks, including failed, incomplete, repeated, supplementary courses, and courses extra to degree requirements, are included in the GPA. The GPA does not include “challenge for credit” courses. Courses for which a specific grade is not given (e.g., a “Pass” grade) are not included in the GPA. Grades from countries other than Canada and the US are processed as non-convertible. The transcript will be forwarded to the institution(s) you applied to for evaluation. Full courses are given a weight of 2. Half courses are given a weight of 1. OLSAS calculates the cumulative average by adding all of the course lengths and converted grades, and dividing the total course lengths into the total OLSAS values from the conversion table. Note: The cumulative average is not an “average of the averages”.
