  1. Just got accepted! LSAT 160, CGPA 3.83
  2. Hi! Was wondering if anyone could help out, I'm currently trying to decide between queens and UOttawa. I'm from Toronto but currently go to school in Ottawa and have interned for a lawyer in Ottawa. Ideally would like to move back to Toronto or stay in Ottawa for articling. However, I am definitely interested in business law (that Queens is probs better at) and am scared that the better rep for Queens could hurt me in the future if I end up at UOttawa. Some other factors that I'm trying to use to help make my decision: Both have similar class sizes (Queens has small group of 25 and large group of 50, Ottawa is small group of 20 and large group of 80) I also looked at Queen's having a 95% rate of students getting articles/clerkships, but I can't find the equivalent stat on the UOttawa website. The UOttawa January intensive is cool, but idk if it is good in practice? Both offer interesting courses and clinics. So I'm mostly asking what other factors should I look into when making my decision? And does anyone have nay insight? Thanks
  3. Hi, I'm trying to make a decisions on where to go, and am having some trouble finding the following info about UOttawa. If anyone has the answers OR knows where on the UOttawa website I can find this info it would be much appreciated! 1) How big are upper year classes? 2) What percentage of students get articling positions? 3) How does the January intensive work? What is the schedule like for this semester and how many people are in each class? 4) How many students are able to get jobs with law firms after 1L and 2L? thanks!

  5. Rejected (As expected) LSAT 160, CGPA 3.83
  6. I was never not referred to admissions to my knowledge. The first time I checked my account was sometime during November and it always said that.
  7. Hi, I got an email from Windsor that reads as follows: "We are pleased to advise that a decision regarding your admission is now available for viewing on UWinsite Student Self Service at student.uwindsor.ca. Please review the letter carefully as it contains important information about your next steps. Congratulations! We look forward to welcoming you as a student to the University of Windsor." To me, this sounds like I've been accepted because of the last sentence. However, no offer has appeared on OLSAS, my my.uwindsor.ca account still shows "referred to admissions" and the student.uwindsor.ca website won't let me log in due to some account error. I'm starting to get nervous as I have seen people been waitlisted by Windsor recently and want to check if this is an acceptance or being waitlisted. If anyone else has recieved this email and could tell me what their application status is that would be much appreciated!
  8. Accepted! General LSAT 160 CGPA 3.83
  9. I am currently finishing my fourth year at Carleton in the BA Legal Studies program and I have been accepted to two schools so far, so the major won't hurt you when applying to schools. Also, it is an amazing program and all the law profs are really great. As long as you get a good CGPA ad LSAT, you'll be ok. If it interests you, I recommend you pursue this degree regardless of whether or not you want to go to law school. It has opened tons of doors for me in that I have already had the opportunity to intern for a lawyer and have done in-depth research into areas of law that I am interested in. I know that my areas of interest may change during law school, but having this degree under my belt has comforted me in that I know 100% that I want to pursue a career in law.
  10. I currently go to school in Ottawa and I highly recommend that you do not live on campus. Look at living in Sandy Hill, Byward Market, or even someplace in downtown or centretown. If you check the bus routes for OCTranspo, it can help you find a place to live that isn't far from where a bus stop is that will take you to campus. Keep in mind, you probably aren't going to find anything listed now for May or September in Ottawa. Wait until February/March for a May 1st lease and June/July for a September 1st lease.
  11. How did you decide which law school to go to? Was it based on the school's reputation, the courses they offered, where you wanted to live, or something else? Do you feel that your decision criteria helped you choose the right school for you? Some context: I applied to 6 out of the 7 law schools in Ontario, and have heard back from 2 so far. I know I don't need to make a decision yet, but I'm finding it very difficult to evaluate which school is the best fit for me, so I was hoping to get advice on how others made their decisions. Thanks in advance for any advice
