  1. Any new information about this? I'm also trying to make a decision about moving.
  2. Rejected Tuesday cgpa: 3.3 (OLSAS) LSAT: 156 ECS = relevant work experience
  3. Rejected Tuesday cgpa: 3.3 (OLSAS) LSAT: 156 ECS = relevant work experience
  4. Thanks! I was in queue for quite a while, OASIS showed they wanted an interview, had interview, received an acceptance via email. I was never on the waitlist.
  5. I did a majority of my undergrad online so that’s what I base my assumption on. You never really interact with the students aside from posting once per week to a discussion about the assigned readings. From what I know there isn’t much in the way of group projects in law classes, again if that’s off mark correct me. My internet isn’t great so zoom hangouts aren’t awesome... even if internet connection was great, zoom hangouts aren’t awesome. (Awesome = enjoyable)
  6. 100% agree with the importance of the social aspect of law school but it sounds like these connections are mostly built in the first year with your cohort. After first year it’s one off classes that you register in depending on your interests. Since fall is online and potentially the winter (really don’t want to derail this topic with a covid debate), I’m not getting those first year connections. I’m assuming you’ve attended law school so let me know if I’m way off the mark re first year connections vs 2nd/3rd year connections.
  7. I’m looking to soak up everything I can from my time at law school. I want good course selection, great faculty, and established legal clinics. Those things matter to me. I want to get in it. Use the resources. Get exposed to various areas of law outside of what I’ve already studied. I already have connections to the legal community in the province that I’ll be residing post JD so I’m purely interested in what each school has to offer.
  8. Had an interview and received an acceptance email today. cGPA: 3.3 (olsas) lsat: 156 quite a bit of relevant work experience
  9. I wanted to find out which school is better for me by getting a comparison of what both schools have to offer during and after law school. The money and distance for both schools has already been considered. So far, I have U of A as: collegial, less course offerings, good student to faculty ratio (not sure if this is still true given my next point), 20% government funding cut pre pandemic (1,000 layoffs etc) Osgoode: bigger classes, less collegial, more course offerings, internationally recognized I’ve been told by a west coast lawyer responsible for student recruitment that if two grads interviewed and they were basically equal with the only difference of one having gone to U of A and the other to Osgoode, Osgoode would tip the scale.
  10. Thanks this was helpful. I definitely don’t have unlimited funds I just didn’t want to get posts focused on the cost comparison, something I’ve already considered.
  11. I’m not looking to work in either province. I’ll probably stay in the west after completing JD.
  12. If money and distance weren’t an issue and I don’t have a preferred area of law, which school and why. Thanks!
  13. My email from U of A said: "FALL TERM 2020: MOSTLY ONLINE AND REMOTE INSTRUCTION, WITH SOME IN-PERSON LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES" Apparently there should be an announcement coming from the law school itself soon but I haven't received anything yet.
  14. I'm not sure if you're asking about my ECs but just those 8 years of relevant work experience. I've worked since I was quite young so I mentioned that as well: service industry, butcher, manager, etc. Thank you! Good luck to you guys too!
  15. I just checked OASIS and I have a notification from today stating that Osgoode would like to interview me. It looks like these interviews are for clarifying information from the personal statement and they're common for mature students (info I've gathered from previous posts about the interviews). I haven't been given a date for the interview yet. OLSAS cGPA: 3.3 LSAT: 156 ECS: 8 years relevant work experience
  16. OLSAS cGPA: 3.3 LSAT: 156 Updated on portal but no email as of yet.
  17. Received an email today notifying that a letter was in the student centre portal. Letter said they're deferring their decision until they receive the transcript for my current term. OLSAS cgpa: 3.3 (not sure how L2 would be calculated for my application) LSAT: 156
  18. For any future celiacs that look at this, I found the below biblical list on the Law Student Association website: Gluten-Friendly Restaurants on Whyte / Campus:Arbour Restaurant and Tea Room Beez Healthy (University of Alberta) Chianti’s (Gluten Free Italian) Continental Treat (Video) Crave Cupcakes Culina Millcreek Cafe (gluten free baked breads, pizza etc.) Culina Muttart El Cortez Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar Famoso Pizzeria GF Diner (COMPLETELY GLUTEN FREE) GF Diner (More) The Greenhouse Salads Highlevel Diner (Basic info) Highlevel Diner (Full Gluten Free Edmonton Review) Julios Barrio (Gluten free menu) Kyoto (Sushi – request gfree soy sauce) Leva Cafe and Bar Meat Menchies (Froyo – Frozen Yogurt) Next Act Pub La Poutine (Gluten Free and Vegan) Re-Fresh Organic Bistro Remedy Cafe Rodeo Burger Sweet Mango (great staff) Trancend Coffee University of Alberta Hospital (Cafeteria/Restaurant) Urban Diner – Gluten free brunch Urban Diner – Gluten free dinner Yiannis (Gluten free greek restaurant options)
  19. Just to be clear I 100% will not be living in Lister or PLH which is why I was looking at the voluntary meal plan. I think the No Gluten pantry is located in the Lister building. Do you know if PLH has the same sort of gf set up as lister? I can't do cross contamination at all so buffet style eating typically isn't usually an option. Kinnikinnick is a great gf brand. Get out of here I had no idea they had an actual store in Edmonton - That's the best news!!
  20. Waitlisted position 77 LSAT:156 AGPA: 3.9 Index: 73.39
  21. I was thinking of buying a voluntary package for a certain number of meals (not for every meal) so that when I just really am not into making my own meal I have somewhere to go. Some cities have minimal options for people with celiac disease so if there's a spot near me that I can get a meal at, I 100% want to know about it. I used to drive a substantial distance to get a gluten free apple fritter. I have been travelling far as hell to find food I can eat for a while now haha
  22. I have celiac disease and will be attending U of A in the fall. Is there anyone who has visited the No Gluten Pantry at the Lister Hall? How is it? What is the selection like? Worth it to get a meal plan solely for the No Gluten Pantry?
  23. Accepted! LSAT: 156 GPA: unsure University of Manitoba calculated 3.9/4.5 and OLSAS calculated 3.3/4.0 Applied special consideration with 90 credits
  24. Accepted today! LSAT: 156 GPA: I'm not too sure. U of M calculated 3.91 and OUAC calculated a 3.3 90 credits completed of degree. Number of years working as LAA/Paralegal. Pumped!!
