  1. No. The Queen's certificate program will not be necessarily conducive to improving your admission chances at Canadian law schools. The program consists of online courses; it will not provide you with various opportunities to interact with your instructors as well as other students. So, you do not need to register the certificate program. Please take any courses in which you have a great interest and have substantuve confidence to do well. I strongly advise you to look for your preferred law schools' admission requirements or entering class profiles if they are available on the schools' webpage. Furthermore, you need to formulate your own strategies for ameliorating your chances at Canadian law schools, such as taking additional couses or doing very well on the LSAT. Good luck!!
  2. Hello, Based on your post, it looks like you'd better to pursue U of T Law's Global Professional Master of Laws (GPLLM, https://gpllm.law.utoronto.ca/admissions) if you live in GTA. If you do not live in this region, please look for similar kinds of program like the GPLLM from other Canadian law schools. My reason for this suggestion is: firstly, you do not particularly seem to care about financial issues pertinent to pursuing legal studies. Secondly, you do not have substantive intent to practice law in that you want to use your legal studies for your business career.
  3. Thank you for your points. I am just wondering if your views of the HYS prestige pertain to the issues of different jurisdiction between the US and Canada, such as NCA exams or articling requirements. I respectfully ask you whether I understand your points correctly or not.
  4. I like Deadpool's statement. I came to Canada when I was 30 years-old. I could not even speak English at all then. Canadian employers just dismissed my first Undergrad degree because the degree came from a non-English speaking country. I had to redo my undergrad from a Canadian university. So, no pains, no gains. To the OP: I think that you'd better to consider applying to Windsor's dual JD program; first, you have not decided between the US and Canada. Additionally, you may get in the program with your current stats.
  5. Hi, if your GPA is 3.0 in accordance with the OLSAS scale, you may be able to get in some Canadian law schools once you have an LSAT score of 160+; Specifically, depending upon your ECs, personal statements, or LORs, you may have chances at TRU, Lakehead, Windsor, or Ryerson Law if you have an LSAT score of 160+. So, I strongly advise you to focus on increasing your LSAT score. Lastly, do not even consider attending non-ABA-approved US law schools!! These are just predatory schools!!!
  6. I have seen or heard some people who got rejected from U of T Law with those stats, but I have not ever seen or heard any persons who got refused from Osgoode with your stats.
  7. It has not been changed for two years. As far as I know, Western law has introduced this personal statement question since the 2018 Fall admission cycle. Yet, we will not know whether Western law will use same questions or not. So, I advise you to work on the personal statement once any pertinent information is available when the OLSAS accepts new applications for the 2020 admission cycle. You may be able to activate your OLSAS account around the late August of this year. Accordingly, you still have a lot of time to work on your personal statement. Good luck!!
  8. I cannot understand Ottawa's decision on these stats...
  9. I do not think that Lakehead law is "easier to get in." The law school is pretty selective in regards to admitting applicants although its entering class profiles may not be very competitive. For your information, I got in Ottawa and Windsor Law and was waitlisted at Osgoode and Western Law. Yet, I was outright rejected from Lakehead Law.
  10. Hey, friend. No offence, but according to the below link that includes your responses, I think that you need to make more qualified statements regarding the results of your previous applications. As you have indicated through the below link, you did not get in Queen’s and Western Law for this cycle, whereas you were admitted to the two law schools for the last year admission. So, I would like to cautiously say that some of your statements may deliver misinformation to future applicants. To the OP. Unlike AJD19’s view, I do not think that you have “fantastic chances” although you are a pretty competitive applicant for Ontario law schools. If you apply to all Ontario law schools except U of T Law, you may be admitted to most schools, i.e. Western, Queen’s, Ottawa, Windsor, Lakehead, or Ryerson. Yet, you may also be rejected from most Ontario law schools. In other words, currently, you may be a pretty borderline candidate for most Ontario law schools. Thus, increasing your current LSAT score and writing a strong personal statement will be vital to ameliorate your chances at Ontario schools. Personally, I believe that you will be able to secure at least one offer of admission if you apply to Canadian law schools broadly. Best of luck with your applications!!
  11. Keep up with you guys' good work! Yes, it is merely a one-year-game. I am 38 years-old, and it has taken fours years to garner my offer of admissio to Ottawa Law. Best of luck with you guys!!
  12. If your gpa coheres with the OLSAS scale and the gpa comes from your full-time undergrad studies, you have very good chances at the aforementioned schools. - Queen’s: you will most likely get in. Both your GPA and LSAT score are quite close to the law school’s statistics of the admitted students. - Dal: Ibid. Mostly in. - Western: Good chances, but I would say that you may have lower chances at Western compared with Queen’s and Dal. Western admits a very small number of entering class. In addition, pay particular attention to the law school’s personal statement, specifically the case analysis portion. I have an impression that Western Law closely looks at the case analysis portion. - Ottawa: Good chances, but you may have lower chances at this law school as it likes high CGPAs. Additionally, Ottawa Law seems to put heavy emphasis on personal statement. So, please write a good personal statement although only admission committees would identify good personal statements. - Windsor: This law school takes extraordinary holistic approaches to assessing applicants’ files. So, no one knows. Yet, if you really consider Windsor, you need to put a lot of efforts on writing your personal statement for Windsor. Its personal statement questions are very unique and Windsor Law seems to put great emphasis on personal statements in terms of assessing applicants’ files. - Lakehead: If you have a genuine interest in Indigenous law, environmental law, or legal practices in rural regions, you may be admitted to Lakehead law. Otherwise, you may be rejected as the law school looks for those interests from applicants’ files. Good luck with your application!!
  13. Although I have no idea of how to define "human rights law" that you are mentioning, I believe that you will be able to work for human rights through any aforementioned law schools as long as you indeed wish to ameliorate the rights of people, such as marginalized groups, social minorities, or etc. If you have a strong LSAT score, i.e. above a score of 160, you will be mostly admitted to the aforementioned law schools by January, except U of T Law, because your GPA is very strong. I believe that U of T Law will certainly wait for your January LSAT score if the law school does not like your previous LSAT scores. Best of luck with your law school applications!!
