  1. The hiring data came out yesterday 2019 1L hiring data
  2. Yeah I got one, maybe email them if you haven’t gotten one by next week
  3. That sounds really cool! How many 1L volunteers were there working for legal aid? What types of files would be most common? When babysitting a file, do you mean that they were just doing a bit of paperwork here and there? Thanks for all the info guys
  4. what would a typical first year schedule look like? 5-7 hours of class/ day?
  5. B3: ~3.75 LSAT: 165 (dec 2017) Got the email just now, not really surprised. Good luck to all of those on the waitlist!
  6. I’m assuming there’s some sort of club day/ week where we can go talk to people who are part of or run the clubs? Any suggestions on clubs to look into?
  7. Thanks for the info! You make working for the clinics sound really interesting. I’ll definitely take a look those
  8. Hey guys, I’m going to be starting 1L in September, and was wondering if 1L students can volunteer at clinics. Is it a good idea to do so, or is the time commitment too much? I really liked the community vibe during welcome day; it really made me excited not only for law school, but also to get involved in the law school community
  9. How do intensives work at osgoode? I see that western and uottawa, for example, have the month of january dedicated to one course. Does it work the same way at osgoode?
  10. Just got the email! General applicant, B2 3.83 (cgpa 3.61), 165 LSAT (wrote Dec 2017, only write), decent extracurriculars, BSc, MSc

  12. Definitely today, I checked at around 10 this morning and there was nothing, so it had to be sometime between 12 and 3 (EST)
  13. No email yet, but I have an offer in my student account! General applicant, decent extracurriculars, science undergrad, MSc (4.0/4.0), strong LORs (maybe?) 165 LSAT (wrote Dec 2017, only write), Not sure which GPA is most useful: CGPA 3.61, B3/L3 3.75, B2 3.83, L2, 3.77 edit: Last name W
  14. From what I understand, you should keep your OLSAS updated by deleting the February test date if you decide not to write it. In addition Some schools, ask that you email them to update them regarding any changes to your LSAT registrations
  15. General applicant, decent extracurriculars, science undergrad, MSc (4.0/4.0), strong LORs Also applied to Ottawa, Osgoode, Western, and UofT Not sure which GPA is most useful: B3/L3 3.75, B2 3.83, L2, 3.77
  16. General applicant, decent extracurriculars, science undergrad, MSc (4.0/4.0) Also applied to Ottawa, Queen's, Western, and Osgoode Not sure which GPA is most useful: B3/L3 3.75, B2 3.83, L2, 3.77
  17. General applicant, decent extracurriculars, science undergrad, MSc (4.0/4.0), I'm guessing strong LORs Also applied to Ottawa, Queen's, Western, and UofT Not sure which GPA is most useful: B3/L3 3.75, B2 3.83, L2 3.77 Thanks!
  18. Look under academic background, it should say (separately) that whether your undergrad and grad transcripts were reviewed Both of mine have been reviewed and it says they've only received 1 document
  19. it might be, both my undergraduate and graduate transcripts were reviewed, and i did both degrees in-province (ON) to lead off of your questions, how/when will we see the gpa's they've calculated?
  20. Hey guys, I'm a current grad student at uOttawa looking to attend law school in the 2018/19 school year. I've heard some pretty wonderful things about queen's on LS and from some friends who've attended queen's. I'm looking to write my lsat in either september or december. - My undergrad grades are 3.6 for all 4 years, and 3.75 for my best 3 and last 2. my undergrad was in biomed, which doesn't say much because the program gives you lots of flexibility. I took a more neuroscience/ molecular biology focus. - my msc is in stroke research (basic science, as opposed to clinical research), also at uottawa (different faculty). I got A+'s in both my grad courses, but I'm assuming they don't really care about those (averages were mid B+ and mid A-) - i've won a few departmental awards (undergrad thesis, poster and seminar presentation prizes, etc) - I have 2 papers, and a few extracurriculars (science-related, mostly scientific outreach, also reviewer on 2 student-run journals) I've seen that queen's favors students that show trends in grades, or have graduate degrees. Can anyone ball-park how they would look at my application? Cheers -S
  21. Sweet, thanks! I actually grew up speaking both French and English, but my French vocabulary has deteriorated a bit by virtue of not using it as much.
  22. Yes, that stigma most definitely exists, but when you have a good explanation for why (project, opportunity for papers, etc) people stop caring. Thanks for answering! I started studying for the LSAT this past weekend, looking to write in June
  23. Hi guys, I've been a long time lurker here, and I'd just like to start out by saying that after reading the these threads for a couple months, you guys are awesome for offering so much advice to people. I'm a recent graduate from the faculty of science (biomed). I'm currently doing my m.sc. in neuroscience at the faculty of medicine, and although I love research and science, I don't think I want to do it for the rest of my life. After talking to a few lawyers, I think that after I'm done my degree, I want to try and go to law school. After looking around, and talking to a few more people I think that IP law and business law interest me the most, but I'm not closed to any other ideas. I know it sounds naive coming from someone who's never taken a law course (I did take law in highshool, lol). My cgpa in my undergrad was 8.18. Right now I'm a reviewer wth a 2 student-run journals, and I do a bit of scientific outreach work with Let's talk science and a local student-run organization that helps 4th year honours students in science. I also have 1 publication, with another one that we're submitting soon, and hopefully 1 more before I finish (science gods-willing). I know that these are sort of open-ended question, but do you guys think I would get in here? I'm planning on starting to study for the lsat in late January (for June) Would it look bad having 3 degrees from the same school? I really love Ottawa as a city, but I'm obviously prepared to move if there's a school that will fit me better. If I went elsewhere, could I still come back to Ottawa, since my "connection" would be my undergrad and my msc? I'm originally from GTA Also, is there any good place where people have summarized ontario's law schools' strengths? The scientist in me twitches every time I read a "my school was the best because it was amazing" post when someone is asking for some sincere advice. If you guys need more info, i'd be more than happy to provide some! Thanks in advance geegees!
