  1. I have a family too. Definitely keep the Osgoode option open as your chances at Osgoode are quite good now. Good luck!
  2. All good, but you are only invited to an interview with Osgoode. Keep in mind that some people may get rejected from Osgoode after the interview. You can further seek advice after you get in Osgoode.
  3. Current 1L at uOttawa here. Go to Queen's. Your post indicates that you prefer Queen's to uOttawa. Queen's also has a good public program, i.e. courses or clinics. You will not be disadvantaged even if you choose over Queen's over uOttawa.
  4. Listing to uOttawa's orientation podcasts is a good idea as well. (This is the 2018 podcasts.) The below is the 2020 podcasts. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UChyXa542g0H6yamg_PDbhvA
  5. The two books provide you with good summaries of Canadian legal history, particularly regarding the Canadian Charter. In addition, at uOttawa law, some professors use those books for textbooks or supplementary materials.
  6. Just enjoy your free time, please. However, reading these books will be quite beneficial. https://www.osgoodesociety.ca/book/brian-dickson-a-judges-journey/ https://www.ubcpress.ca/claire-lheureux-dube
  7. Ryerson Pros: You can learn Coding. Cons: Countless. Osgoode Pros: Countless compared with Ryerson. Cons: None compared with Ryerson.
  8. Yeah, uOttawa law is a cGPA school, but it is also quite holistic in term of assessing applicants' files. So, your admission chance at uOttawa also depends on your personal files, like your personal statements or ECs. Good luck!
  9. I think that you will get in either Western or Queen's.
  10. I respectfully let you know that uOttawa law admits 280 JD students for its incoming class since 2020. (https://commonlaw.uottawa.ca/en/students/programs/overview#juris-doctor). So, Osgoode is the largest in terms of selecting first-year JD students.
  11. Current 1L at uOttawa law here. If you are interested in public law or social justice issues, I think that choosing uOttawa law over Queen's will be a better choice for you. We have public law or social justice options that provide a lot of courses (https://commonlaw.uottawa.ca/en/students/student-centre/course#program-options). In addition, when it comes to the possibility of engaging with the Federal Government, our law school provides a number of interships that allow students to interact with the Federal Government. See relevant internships via our course search engine (https://commonlaw.uottawa.ca/en/students/student-centre/course_search_engine). Good luck!
  12. I think that you have a quite good chance at uOttawa law. You get in uCalgary law and are waitlisted at Windsor law, right? Both law schools use holistic admission criteria. uOttawa law is also quite holistic in terms of evaluating applicants. I have met many uOttawa law students who got in uCalgary or Windsor law.
  13. I do not know well about UBC law although the law school is one of the best law schools in Canada. Unless you aim to work for the Federal Government, choose Osgoode over uOttawa. Osgoode has a very strong IP program, although uOttawa is also quite good in technology law.
