    My statement of account shows $415.04 for September-April; it's all billed for the fall semester. I think you have to pay for it unless you live outside of the OC Transpo service area (ie if you live in Carleton Place), in which case you could opt out. To get the U-Pass you go to the UCU Couch Lounge and show your student card; they'll take your picture and make the card on the spot. There will be footprints on the floor that you can follow. if you're coming from Fauteux it will be on your right when you come in the doors, down the hall. There are two gyms; I've only worked out in Minto. It's rather small for the amount of people who have access to it. There are eight or so treadmills, six(ish) ellipticals, three rowing machines, a bunch of bikes, your standard weight machines, and not enough benches (at least in my opinion).

    How many programs are people applying to?

    There's an earlier thread here:

    Finally pulling the cord.. law school ..

    It would depend on the specific program, and I don't know what they're majoring in.

    General education requirements, I imagine. Even if bfaveri was majoring in something they loved they'd still have to take those courses to earn a bachelor's.

    How to pick an Ontario law school?

    I was originally going to suggest that you focus on Ottawa because you want to work there but then I saw your reply. Focus on your undergraduate degree instead. Find a program you genuinely enjoy and see it as an end in itself, not simply a step on the way to law school. If you take something you genuinely enjoy there's a good chance you'll have higher marks (which will make you more competitive for law school).

    program information

    Most people just do the JD. The JD/political science and JD/commerce joint degrees are only offered in French; how good is your French? (French immersion is possible for the political science/commerce part of the joint degree but as far as I know the law degree must be done in French.)

    Could someone do an updated list for McGill? The last one is from 2011.

    TWU - BC lawyers vote against approval

    I'm not sure that "forcefully impose" are the right words to use when she voluntarily chose to go to TWU; Ms. Davison could instead have chosen to go to a secular university and then spread her religious beliefs. In addition, pretty much everybody who goes to TWU are people who already hold those beliefs; you can't forcefully impose a set of beliefs on someone who already holds them.

    Current 1L Dual. Ask me (almost) anything.

    I know that we'd need a study permit/student visa to legally go to university in the States. How long does it take for the visa to be processed and for you to receive it?
