  1. Sorry for the bump, but has anyone found the answer to this? I've been searching, but I can't find a solid answer for the latest we may submit the TFI results.
  2. Does does ottawa only require grades for their civil law program? Or did you also have to include a personal statement/letter of rec's, etc?
  3. Hi, apologies if wrong forum, but I posted in the civil law forum and it seems nobody had an answer. I'm an anglophone interested in attending University of Ottawa Civil Law's French program. I'm not certain I'd be able to achieve the 80% on the TFI to be admitted to University of Montreal, however, I know University of Ottawa offers their own language test. Does anyone know if there is an absolute minimum that an applicant must score on that test to be admitted to Ottawa's civil law program? I just can't seem to find any info on this online and the faculty has not responded to e-mails. I understand on their website, they have grading criteria on how to interpret your language results, but nothing pertaining to a minimum required to attend classes.
  4. Refused just like last year. 4.02/4.3 GPA, decent ECs, what I thought were strong LORs and PS.
  5. Did you consider including a letter of extenuating circumstances with your application to explain your late withdrawals?
  6. What about Ottawa? I found a page describing the process behind taking their own Language test and how to understand the results, but I haven't found anything discussing a required minimum in order to be admitted to the program. I also read some forum posts here on lawstudents explaining that students may submit their papers in either language and the ability to understand lectures and readings is far more important, but I haven't found any significant information pertaining to absolute minimum requirements on Ottawa's website.
  7. I wasn't able to find a ton of concrete information online, but essentially I was wondering how various schools in QC, namely: University of Laval, UQAM, Sherbrooke, UDEM vary in terms of their french requirements and their conditions for having a candidate part of their program with certain levels of French. For instance, I'm well aware that UDEM requires a TFI score of 785 or C1 on TEF Express prior to admission to be admitted. I was told that University of Laval may have you write the test even after classes have begun and I read somewhere else that UQAM may admit on the condition that one takes supplemental French classes along with law classes. Obviously I am a little on edge with my French skills, I've been studying French but I'm worried of losing a year due to not having written the LSAT and potentially being limited by my French. If anyone has knowledge on different schools' French requirements and being admitted, it would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Wow that's rough, I'm sorry to hear you missed out by that little. I have not found anywhere offering the TFI, I think you are correct that COVID is still affecting it. Is it the TEF express is more difficult? As an anglophone with intermediate French skills, do you have a rough guess as for how long one should study for the test or when the latest take can be taken? I'm not sure where to find the TEF's scheduled offerings.
  9. Not to hijack, but what if I were to fail the TFI on my first try, would I be eligible to re-take it for the same cycle? Also, what is the latest that one may take it for this cycle?
  10. Would you be able to say if McGill has a preference for evaluating a fully completed transcript versus a transcript with some credits to be completed still?
  11. Not to derail, but is the TEF Express the only option assuming TIF is not offered in-person due to covid?
  12. Hmm thanks for this info. Now I have to decide if I want to spend time studying for the LSAT or TFI 😕
  13. What dwight is saying is correct in regards to my question. There has been some past confusion over « While candidates with 60 credits of university studies are eligible to apply to the Faculty of Law, admission to the program is highly competitive. Almost all students admitted in the “University” category will have completed an undergraduate degree before starting our BCL/JD program. » However, I am asking specificially about the time of an application being submitted, NOT when one would be starting fall classes in admission. I understand admitting a candidate into the program who will not be completing their undergrad is very rare. In other words, do they evaluate an application more favorably if they are already graduated in comparison to someone who will be graduating.
  14. In regards to McGill, would they consider an applicant more competitive if they applied with a completed degree at the time of application in comparison to someone who has 60 credits completed? Both applicants hypothetically would be graduated at the time of starting law classes, however one applicant is graduated at the time of application, while the other is in their 3rd year of undergrad.
  15. I have a 4.02/4.3 GPA from JMSB, which I am well aware is a respectable GPA, however, the reason I am making this thread is because I am wondering if UDEM considers any other elements in an applicants' besides GPA? I was refused from McGill last cycle (likely due to poor EC's and PS). I absolutely have some concerns studying fully in French for the first time in many years, as I am an anglophone and not 100% confident in my French being fluent. If my GPA is pretty close to being a sure thing for civil QC schools, then I may just want to brush up on my French for the next several months and prepare for the TFI because I'm not satisfied with my LSAT progress and I'm unsure if I want to write it for this cycle and potentially hurt my chances at McGill again. Also, when should I write the TFI? Should I only write it if I'm offered a conditional acceptance or do most applicants already write it at the time of their application? Thank you in advance, I've found this forum to be very helpful
