  1. I have a friend who used to live in a 1 bedroom in one of the apartment towers on Lees about 5 years ago for less than $1100 + hydro. One bus stop (soon to be LRT stop) away from campus or a short walk away. She loved it. I don't know how much prices have changed since then. (Make sure you visit the building before you commit. Not all the buildings on Lees are to the same standard.)
  2. Thanks for the info. I assumed as much, but got a little confused after hearing about a Montreal recruit.
  3. How does the legal market in Montreal work? Are there lawyers practising solely in common law? Do lawyers possess a degree in civil law to get licenced by the Barreau? How does this translate to student recruitment and employment? (My questions mostly relate to biglaw jobs.)
  4. Another thing to consider is how the loan would affect your co-signer's credit (even if you don't default). I don't know how it works for student LOCs, but being a co-signer on a car loan affects someone's ability to obtain other personal loans, such as a mortgage. I hope everything works out for you.
  5. I believe you are missing some steps. You have to apply for specific scholarships (click on search and select the scholarships you want to apply for). Different scholarships have different application requirements. Make sure you apply for the Admission Scholarships (English or French depending on your program), which require filling out a Financial Questionnaire. By applying to the Admission Scholarships, you will be considered for a list of scholarships (10-12 or so). However, there are also a number of other scholarships that require separate applications.
  6. You can try reaching out to current law students/articling students if you are looking for insight into law school and articling in general. In my experience, they are more than willing to talk to a prospective law student. Look into your Facebook friends, alumni from your high school, friends of friends, etc. for connections.
  7. Any good podcast recommendations?
  8. See the following links. The second one is for out-of-province students. https://scholarships.uottawa.ca/p/a/17298/ https://scholarships.uottawa.ca/p/a/17315/ I says for students admitted before or in the Fall of 2017. Not sure if there is a similar scholarship for new students.
  9. My status was updated on uozone. I have not received an email yet and my status has not been changed on OLSAS.
  10. Admitted this morning to both the French JD and Programme de droit canadien. Submitted my application in early February. cGPA: 3.90, no LSAT.
  11. https://www.uottawa.ca/university-fees/tuition-fees-can-undergraduate Select "Common Law" and "Full Time" and press submit. It'll give you the tuition fees for this year.
