  1. @TobyFlenderson you should get into Ottawa! I got accepted in March and I had a lower CGPA and a bit higher of an LSAT. Quite a few people with lower stats than me got in before March so its just a matter of when you'll get accepted. Good luck!
  2. Just to clarify, this could be true if someone is waiting on another school outside of Ontario but you can only select courses if you have firmly accepted your offer to Ottawa meaning that you are removed from consideration for other Ontario schools. I know this because I wasn't able to access student center on uozone, which means I wouldn't be able to select courses. After I called Ottawa I realized it was because I had accidentally provisionally accepted my offer months ago instead of firm accepting. Once I firm accepted my offer I was able to access the student center and select my courses on time. So there may be people still hanging on to a provisional acceptance from Ottawa (ie myself a week ago ) and they have not selected courses so they wouldn't be accounted for in the 246 number. Those people will have to choose by July 3rd though so that could also mean more spots open if they firm accept another Ontario school.
  3. That was what I was thinking too! I like the idea of the journals (and one less exam)
  4. Your determination is admirable @lindsn! Don't let other people discourage you- once you jump through the LSAT hoop you're in! Feel free to message me if you have any LSAT type questions. I'm no expert by any means but I was able to improve my score quite a bit so maybe some of the strategies I used might work for you too.
  5. Anytime! Feel free to message me if you have any other questions. I would be happy to help!
  6. Hi Sara, I took the self-paced Kaplan course when I was studying for the LSAT and I really liked it. I recommend it to most people who ask me about LSAT prep because I think it gave me a solid foundation of the concepts found on the LSAT. The reason why I chose self-paced over in class was because when I was studying for my LSAT I was either in school full-time or working full-time so I liked having the flexibility to complete the modules on my own time. I ended up completing the course in just over two months and then I self studied by writing prep-tests until my test date as Kaplan gives you access to every prep-test ever released. If you are also in school or working, I would probably go with the self-paced because of the flexibility and you are able to have access to the course for six months. I believe they will also give you one extension for free. Another thing I liked about the self-paced is that if I didn't understand a concept I could replay the video and re-watch the module until I had a better understanding unlike in class where if you miss something you can't just rewind what the lecturer said. However what I will say about Kaplan is that I don't think they do a very good job of teaching reading comprehension. They only have one module on it and I found that I was never able to improve my score that much in this section. You might want to supplement your studying by using other books like the power score bibles or 7sage for this section if you ran into the same problem that I did with not seeing an improvement in your reading comp score. Other than that I personally have no other complaints as I had a good experience with the course and I have recommended it to many people who are also prepping for the LSAT. I hope this helps you out! Best of luck
  7. Thank you so much!!! Cgpa: 3.67 L2: I'm not sure somewhere around a 3.8 I'm still in my last term of undergrad. Highest LSAT: 162
  8. Very excited to say that I have accepted my offer to Ottawa I can't wait to meet you all in the fall. Best of luck to everyone still waiting!
  9. Declined my offer in favour of Ottawa. Really tough choice (I've been quite an advocate for Windsor on these forums). I hope my spot goes to someone one here! Best of luck to everyone still waiting. I'm rooting for you all, especially you @WindsorHopeful
  10. just admitted on Uozone! no email but randomly checked and realized I was admitted! So so so soooo excited as this is one of my top choices decision time!
  11. On the invite they emailed me it did say it was for admitted students. Here's what it said: Windsor Law is bringing a wonderful group of faculty, students and alumni together for you to meet. This is your chance to ask questions about why Windsor Law students love it here! The invitation is extended to all students offered an acceptance for September 2018.
  12. I was referred in early december and got in on January 11th so I think a little more than a month. However, Windsor only started accepting on December 22nd and considering the university closed for the holidays shortly after, two weeks would be more accurate. Best of luck!
  13. I was accepted in early January and the portal still says that my documents weren't received. I wouldn't worry too much about this because I don't think they are updating documents on myuwindsor and if they are, it's just taking awhile but it shouldn't hinder you from being accepted!
  14. It's just the date entry! I happened to randomly check today and realized it had been updated yesterday. I'm not sure if this is good or bad news considering rejections are probably starting soon.
  15. So I haven't heard anything from Osgoode but Oasis is showing that my file was updated yesterday (under status of application) yet nothing has changed in my application. Did this happen to anyone else?
  16. Aww it really does suck. I hope you hear really soon! Best of luck
  17. Despite checking at least 10 times a day (no exaggeration), nothing for me either and my file hasn't been updated since November if that means anything. Good luck to everyone still waiting, it's nice to know I'm not alone.
  18. @WindsorHopeful just wanted to say I have so much faith in you. Stay strong, its coming!!!
  19. @hopefuljd2018 I have pretty much the exact same stats as you and pretty good softs but Ottawa is one of the only schools I haven't heard from either! It's one of my top choices so I'm getting a bit worried but it's good to know I'm not alone.
  20. I was going to summon you because as I was typing my message I was like uhhh WindsorHopeful can speak to this better than I can OP, I pretty much second this as well. It's not as bad as people make it seem.
  21. I was born in Windsor and lived there on and off for multiple years and could likely be returning for law school. I moved around a lot growing up and I can honestly say I didn't find Windsor to be any worse than other places I lived. In fact, I did enjoy living in Windsor for the most part it has some really nice areas surrounding it (Essex, Lasalle, Amherstburg) and like most cities, some areas that you should probably avoid. I haven't lived in Windsor for almost four years now though so my opinion might be outdated but I don't think it's as bad as people make it seem.
