    Open House Invitation

    I have also received this email and have also been referred to admissions committee for a few months now. I'm hoping that this is a positive sign.

    windsor dual?

    Last year it seems that a few were accepted between the months of January and early April. Then, the bulk of them started flowing in after the April 15th deadline. But since there have been no reported acceptances of yet, I think it's safe to assume that they will begin coming out closer to the deadline. Accepted Windsor Dual 2018

    What is Tips for Studying Alongside School?

    Surprisingly, I was able to make and follow a much better schedule when I studied for the Jan LSAT. I followed the PowerScore study guide and did about 1 or 2 chapters every night.

    Hi, I applied to the JD/JD program a few weeks ago and have yet to receive a confirmation email. I have no idea if they even received my application or not. Is anyone else in the same boat?

    I believe that it is April 15th. Should I expect to receive my confirmation after this date?

    Admission Responses on Weekends?

    Thank you for your response. I might just stay away or at least tone it down this month and give myself a break.

    Admission Responses on Weekends?

    Do Ontario law schools send out acceptance emails, or update their admissions websites, on weekends? For some reason I can't find this information online.

    Newsletter from Windsor

    Was it about Windsor's BLSA? Just curious to see if it is catered.

    Anyone ever accepted with a 148 LSAT?

    After looking through their post history, I found that it was Windsor that they were accepted to. They declined in favour of taking a year to work.

    Freedom Mobile signal at Western

    I am currently an undergraduate at Western and have had Wind/Freedom since 2015. I have never had any problems with signal, with the exception of a few tunnels or basements on campus. The wifi is fairly strong so even when service is lost in those areas I am still able to connect. As for London, I have never had any problems. I hope this helps!

    Referred to Admissions Committee

    Is this specific to those of you with Referred for Review or does this apply to those of us with Referred to Admissions Committee as well?
  16. I'm not too sure if this post belongs in the Windsor forum but I thought it would be useful to reach a larger audience. I have recently gained an interest in the Dual JD Program at Windsor but I have seen some very mixed opinions. When doing research on specific firms and LinkedIn, I see that their graduates are able to land the same positions as regular grads in Ontario. They have landed positions on both sides of the border and are able to leverage their admission to two bars. For those who have close connections in both countries, why isn't this program more desired? I see that Ottawa also has a dual JD option - which is not as publicized as the program at Windsor. I know this is an exhausted discussion but I think it's fair to return to it for more recent opinions and insights. With that, other than the exorbitant price tag and low admissions standards, why does the program receive so much criticism on this forum? I would like to see a constructive discussion on the merits and inferiorities of the program.

    Honest Opinion of the Dual JD at Windsor

    Thank you for your honesty. After searching the forum, I noticed that those were the biggest concerns and was just curious to find out if there are any other glaring inferiorities. In the event that I am not accepted to any regular Canadian JD programs, would I be better off completing a masters or working before reapplying?

    Fall Transcript

    I have just sent my Fall transcript request. Will OLSAS recalculate my GPA or will schools use my new grades at their discretion? Also, any ideas for the timeline of this?
  19. 3.77 and yes, it is unaffected by my access claim. Also, I have been placed in the queue for review at Osgoode if it means anything.
  20. Hi All, I'm a long time lurker. Today I broke and decided to make an account! After refreshing all admissions portals non-stop, I have decided to get your opinions. I am currently in my fourth year and just finished my first term. So, those grades should be updated soon. A quick question for that: do I need to send my updated transcript when those are uploaded or do I want until the conclusion of my second term? Returning to my chances. I have applied under the access/discretionary category, to the schools which offer it, due to various deaths which have occurred on campus and my proximity to all of them (members of the same teams/association, close friends, etc.) as well as anxiety and depression which developed as a result. Unfortunately, to top it all off, I also experienced a concussion later which only exacerbated my previous symptoms. For those wondering, my noggin is recovered and I have been getting treated for my mental health issues so I would consider myself healthy now! I may be oversharing - bear with me. Stats: OLSAS CGPA: 3.44 L2: 3.44 (will increase after this term) LSAT: 155, 153, rewriting in January. Applied to all Ontario schools except for Lakehead (regrettably). Referred - admissions committee at Windsor and Under evaluation at Ottawa. The rest are pending or have no status as of yet. Edit: References: director of my program who I've taken multiple classes under, director of a major department at my university, and a manager who I've grown fairly close with over the years. Extra-curricular: not to sure how to evaluate my extracurriculars but I am confident that I have balanced a numerous and diverse range of activities during my undergraduate.
  21. Update: So, my fall marks have finally arrived and I will be sending in my transcript ASAP. These are my updated marks: 3.46 CGPA / 3.48 L2 / 3.53 B3. Rewriting my LSAT next week. Thoughts?

    Lawyers and The Stock Market

    Hello All! I hope your holidays have been great. This is just out of complete curiosity, but I have recently gained an interest in buying and selling stocks. After doing a bit of research, I came across some articles that suggest that lawyers should avoid stocks as it is dangerously easy to practice insider trading. A few articles have even mentioned how some Osgoode (and ex-Osgoode) students used each other to do this. I am not a lawyer or even a 0L. I just found this interesting. Can any lawyers here confirm or deny this? What are your thoughts? What other things should lawyers avoid if possible?

    Application Acknowledgement

    Echoing what everyone else has said so far. I received information on how to log in - even though it is identical to the information in the email sent back in November. Any idea what is going on? This is my third acknowledgment email.
  24. Looks like we're going to be waiting around for a bit longer.
