  1. I would personally say that it is not a good idea to omit relevant information. McGill for example has this written on their website: The Faculty of Law may revoke an offer of admission or cancel an application at any time for material misrepresentation, including omissions, in an application. I would assume that most other law faculties have similar rules in place. Maybe instead, you can explain your previous mental health issues in your PS or elsewhere in your application; but I would personally say that it is not a good idea to omit information.
  2. I'm unsure about the course offerings at Calgary Law or if there are many courses in Space Law. However, I have heard from some people and a few times during the Welcome Day Event that McGill is quite well known for Space Law as they host the Institute of Air and Space Law, there's some info on it here: https://www.mcgill.ca/iasl/. I know you won't be going to McGill for your undergrad, but the reason I'm telling you this is because McGill has an LL.M. in Air and Space law which could possibly be a good way of getting your foot in the door in the field. I don't really know a ton about it myself as I am a 0L at McGill, but maybe an upper-year student or graduate might be able to provide more apt information ?
  3. I believe the most common conditional acceptance criteria is that you must finish your undergrad (and this is also the conditional acceptance I had received) ; as to whether you finish in the winter or summer semester, I don't believe McGill cares. In an email the admissions office sent to the people who had to complete their degrees in order to be firmly admitted, they indicated this: « Il vous incombe de vous assurer de satisfaire à la condition dont dépend votre admission à la Faculté avant le 26 août » So as long as you have completed your courses before the very end of the summer you should be fine.
  4. My application went immediately from RFR to Accepted, so I don't think there is an "Under Review" stage, but it might be different for students applying in different categories (I had applied as a university entrant). So I believe that RFR indicates that they have been/are reviewing your file and just have not yet made a firm decision. As for this, I was under the impression that the only category of students who are obligated to be interviewed are CEGEP applicants; otherwise, I believe that the university only asks for an interview if they require further information/want a better idea of your profile and who you are. (Although I am not entirely sure and may be wrong about this.)
  5. Hey ! I just got approved for a PSLOC from TD in Ottawa at prime--tried giving prime minus a shot as well, but that's apparently only for med students. I worked with a representative at the TD located in the World Exchange Plaza at 45 O'Connor Street and it was a very easy appointment where he explained everything to me. I was approved for a better chequing account than I have at with no fee, as well as a choice between 3 of their credit cards that ordinarily come with a fee, but for the duration of the LOC the fee is waived (an airmiles plan, a TD rewards plan and a cash-back card). The LOC was for 125k and in addition to everything else I've mentioned, it also came with a free 150$ Amazon gift card. I bank with TD already, so it was really easy to go through everything with him. Upon further reflection, the conversation began with him asking me which Law School I would be attending--I am unsure as to whether this alters the plan that they offer--I doubt it, but I won't pretend to presume how banks decide to do what they do. If it helps at all, for reference, I will be attending McGill in the Fall. If you have any specific questions feel free to PM me !
  6. I just want to echo what everyone else is saying in this post. My study abroad in third year was by far my favourite part of my undergrad ! I actually ended up getting to work in that country after I finished for the summer and it was an absolutely amazing experience. I spoke to it in my PS when I applied and I am absolutely sure that it helped my application I would also echo what @CrystalClear said: make sure that you keep your transcript in a VERY safe place. My transcript from my exchange cause a lot of hassle for me when I had to provide it to OLSAS as they're very particular about exchange transcripts. If you have any questions at all feel free to PM me Best of luck in your decision ; and if you choose to go, I hope you have an AMAZING experience abroad !
  7. Accepted a little while ago CGPA: 3.7/4 LSAT: 157 Will be declining for McGill. Best of luck to everyone still waiting !
  8. Hey @Legallyblonde1997, Thank you so much ! And my GPA is out of 4.
  9. Just got the email ! Accepted ! CGPA 3.7 LSAT 157 Really strong LORs and work experience, solid PS. Trilingual (perfectly bilingual in French/English). Will be accepting. Good luck to everyone still waiting !
  10. My date changed this morning and then I was admitted later today, but it had also changed back in November as well and nothing had happened, so I'm not entirely sure, but it might mean good news !
  11. Fauteux is the law "Pavillon" at uOttawa. You should include it in the address.
  12. Hey ! So I'm not a law student at uOttawa (I'm still in my undergrad there), but I work at the Official Languages and Bilingualism Centre at the university and we offer a bunch of services for uOttawa students to improve their second language. For example, there are French tutors that can meet up with you a few times a week and work on whatever level you're at. There are also conversation "workshops" at a bunch of different French levels that last about an hour where a moderator will manage the conversation. If you're looking more at courses, there are over 30 FLS (Français langue seconde) courses to be taken ; in addition to the fact that the campus is entirely bilingual (insofar as all services and employees are bilingual.) And in general, the entire National Capital Region is pretty bilingual--so you can even get speak French outside of campus. But most of all, odds are you'll be meeting some Francophones on campus--so speak French to them and you'll definitely see your French improve :) You can also PM me if you have any specific questions !
