  1. Looks pretty good steady freddy - most likely in when playoffs start.
  2. Where are you getting 2019 stats from?
  3. Do any upper years at uOttawa mind sharing summaries from their 1L classes? Having trouble making connections with upper years, summaries would greatly help me manage some time (esp during first semester) Please let me know in a PM! - I'd greatly appreciate it.
  4. It being "cancelled" should not be a glitch, it should show up for those who had a provisional acceptance turn firm to another school. If this is not the case, then it may be a glitch - however, I don't suspect this.
  5. I feel like admissions office is being overly vague with their answers to you guys. Either that or this is potentially another mess up year. It does not make sense for them to make a waitlist past the firm acceptance deadline, or even this close to it. They would be accepting "weaker" applicants instead of stronger applicants who have probably received offers from other schools, but would decline in favour of Ottawa should they receive an acceptance before the firm date. Unless, the class is actually almost full and this year is unlike those in the past for uOttawa - meaning they would not be using the waitlist much to fill their seats.
  6. Choosing between Comparative Health Systems Law and Policy with Coleen Flood and Immigration Health Law with Yin Yuan Chen. Any insight on either of these?
  7. Anyone also still waiting on a response? (Access or General)
  8. To me it seems as if they are either: a) very behind this cycle b) attempting to reduce the class size from prior years c) as bad administratively as people say on this forum d) all of the above
  9. Is there a benefit to taking a specific small group?
  10. To current and former uOttawa law students: Any suggestions with profs or first year courses? good/bad experiences? Also any suggestions on thematic courses? Are they all of the same difficulty or are any known to be "easier" or "harder" than the rest [to achieve a higher mark]. (I know many will say take a course that interests you, but I'd like to know about experiences that former students have had)
  11. Are grades at law schools equal? Ex. is a B+ at Windsor equal to a B+ at Ottawa or Osgoode? In terms of looking at them as employers or for transfers.
  12. Is there a strong interest in corporate law among your 1L class in terms of career goals? What is the curve for 1L classes?
  13. Declined. Best of luck to those waiting.
  14. How is the reputation for Corporate/Business Law?
  15. So its just waitlist that we're waiting on? No additional acceptance waves?
  16. Thanks for that website link. I'm open to extending the price range a bit and see a lot of options there. Are there any specific buildings that a lot of law students live in?
  17. What are some nice studio/one bedroom apartment/condos near UOttawa and the law building? I've heard of The Carson and that many law students choose to live there - are there any others? Preferred to be furnished and ~$1200/month or less.
  18. I live in the GTA, so neither school provides a location benefit. My goal is to summer and article at a corporate law firm in Toronto - I know a lot depends on my performance in law school to reach these goals. However, I need to make a decision: Which should I choose? Pros/Cons? I'm kinda leaning towards Ottawa due to: -Cleaner, nicer city -Longer Reputation -I see more people from Ottawa at Bay St. firms (mid-sized and big) than Windsor - although there may be various reasons for this
  19. Was accepted this morning - not sure if it was part of a larger offer wave
  20. Accepted this morning. 3.37, 161, Special Circumstances regarding a semester in my 2nd year
  21. Are there typically any more waves of offers before a waitlist at this point? Haven't noticed a big wave of offers for a while now, not sure if this is typical?
  22. Did you apply as a mature applicant? Try getting feedback from schools on what you can do better in terms of your personal statements or ask someone you know that has been accepted/is a law student/or is just a good writer for suggestions on illustrating your angle and experiences in a PS. Great GPA (assuming its OLSAS). If you can get your LSAT up even a few points and/or improve your PS (assuming it was not the strongest), your chances should be very good at at least one school in Ontario next cycle. Keep your head up Singh 20re.
  23. Waitlisted. 3.37, 161, Part B No email, just an update.
  24. Is there a "negative" stigma persistent, among students and employers?
