  1. Hi everyone, Stuck between Western and Ottawa and would love some input based on what I'm looking for. With Western, I luckily got to visit the school and LOVED it. Everyone was so welcoming and really changed my mind about the school. Liked how it was a small class size and how it's closer to Toronto. I was planning on going here until I finally received an answer from Ottawa today. I like the idea of Ottawa because of how diverse their course selection is and their government connections. I'm hoping to explore either criminal or health law, both of which I've heard great things about with Ottawa. However, I've heard that Western is a bit more well connected if I'm hoping to stay close to home and practice in Toronto once I finish. I've worked for government and loved it, so I think this would be a great option for me or working with the public somehow. Worked in corporate law and hated it, which I know Western is big on so I worry I may not be able to explore other option/streams as much. Ottawa's larger class size, distance and hearing about their poor administration also worries me. I didn't get a chance to visit Ottawa so it's hard to compare the culture and atmosphere of Western to them. Ultimately, I want to be able to enjoy my student experience while also being able to effectively explore my options in law and have good chances at later coming back to Toronto to practice as well. Also, I'm definitely open to other streams outside criminal and health law, but as of now I'm super passionate about those. PLEASE HELP
  2. I'm in the same situation! It still has my in queue update from January. I gave them a call today and they are hoping to get some kind of answers out to people by the end of the week (June 1st) and if not then next week. Hope this helps!
  3. Accepted this morning! Will be declining. L2 3.92 LSAT 154/162
  4. Accepted March 22 LSAT 154/161 L2 3.92 Will be declining! Good luck to those waiting!
  5. If we are provisionally accepting the offer, should I still click accept on the actual schools online portal? Or just leave it empty for now since OLSAS already says provisional acceptance as my status for the school?
  6. Oh perfect, thank you so much!
  7. Hi everyone, I'm looking forward to attending the open house/welcome this Sunday but haven't been able to find any details on what's going on that day, what time I should be there for or where on campus things are happening exactly. I've even tried googling it and can't find any more information. I just have the brief description they gave us in our admission package. Would love to know if anyone else found some information!
  8. Hi all, I was accepted to Western about a month ago and am starting to stress about finding housing for September. Western is definitely one of my top choices but I would ideally also like to hear from Osgoode and uOttawa before the April 1 deadline to accept, but have yet to hear anything from those schools. I know housing is usually done around this time (Jan-Feb) and good houses go really quick. If possible, I would like to wait until closer to the deadline before I accept Western's offer in case I hear from other schools. What would you recommend for housing? Look now or wait it out? How slim will housing be the longer I wait? Also, do law students usually live together? Do you get houses/apartments as a group or solo and people join later? Any help would be appreciated!
  9. I just finished my undergrad at McMaster myself and there is definitely no JD program. It is just the new undergraduate JPPL program that started a few years ago as mentioned earlier. All the students I know from this program are currently applying for law schools at other universities.
  10. I am in the same predicament! I saw that a lot of Western's course offerings were catered more towards corporate and criminal law. How did people find it exploring other streams? I was hoping to go into either health law or criminal law, but would love to keep my options open as much as possible -- to which Osgoode seems to be a bit more diverse.
  11. Received the email this morning! LSAT 154/161 cGPA: 3.48 L2: 3.93 General category. ON resident. Will likely be declining, hopefully this spot can go to someone else!
  12. November LSAT! They should have all the LSAT marks by now. I called in late December and they said they received my new score within the week or two after the release.
  13. Got the green checkmark just now! cGPA: 3.49 L2: 3.93 LSAT 154 /161 General category. Will likely accept (waiting on Osgoode)!
  14. Hi everyone, I am an Ontario student who was recently accepted to Dal. I was thinking of flying out to the Weldon Welcome Week event in March. Does anyone have any idea what this two-day event is like? I saw the itinerary for the days and it seems almost like an orientation for the students only. I’m used to open houses being more of a walk around and visit which stations you like. I’m just wondering if it is worthwhile for my parents to also fly out, if the events are catered to be only for me throughout the day. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
