  1. No not yet for me, hopefully we will get our responses soon!
  2. Does anyone know if a Facebook group has been created for incoming students yet?
  3. I had someone tell me I wouldn't be a convincing lawyer because I was too short (barely over 5 feet), so you may be onto something there.
  4. Are July-July leases common in the city or is it better to plan to move in September?
  5. Good to know, thank you!
  6. Banana Republic is having a 40%+10% off sale off everything, ends tonight! Does anyone know how frequently they do these sales? I'm looking to buy a suit for law school in September but it feels a bit premature right now...
  7. No problem, I think your chances are good at Ottawa! If not, starting a second undergrad degree worked out for me and I'm super glad I went for it. You could also postpone your graduation and take more classes, or look into the certificate as another option.
  8. For sure! I graduated from McGill with a 3.3~ GPA in Anthro, currently doing a second BA with a 3.8~ GPA. Good luck everyone 😊
  9. Hi, I applied around January 10th and received my acceptance last week for the civil law program, so around a one month delay. I have until April 1 to accept, after which there will probably be another round of offers if you haven't heard back yet!
  10. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but from what I've gathered from the school's websites and browsing this forum all of the schools in Quebec (UQAM, UdeS, UDEM) require a C1 level on the TFI exam which you can submit when you apply or once you've gotten your acceptance, except for Laval which requires a C2. Not too sure about Ottawa, they say French knowledge is required for the Civil Law program on their website but I'm not sure how it's measured.
  11. Si tu cherches un partenaire de langue je suis une anglophone qui essaie d'améliorer mon français, envoyez-moi un message si ça t'intéresse on pourrait faire un échange!
  12. I only ended up applying to McGill and was rejected. I figured my chances were too low for the other schools based on past acceptance threads in this forum since civil law schools focus solely on cGPA (I'm an arts undergrad, I believe BComm's have a higher chance based on the Cote Z calculations). I called all the admissions and they told me that if you do a second undergrad, they'll weigh the most recent grades more heavily than your first undergrad/CEGEP. Will be applying for the next cycle instead and in the meantime will be taking courses to boost my GPA!
  13. My application was a long shot to begin with, I applied in the EC category and had completed my undergrad at McGill with a 3.34cGPA, no LSAT, Quebec resident. I'll be going back to school to complete a second undergrad and will be applying again and to other civil law schools with a hopefully much better cGPA.
  14. Officially received a letter of refusal from McGill today! Relieved I got a rejection so early on in the game. Good luck to you all, hang in there
  15. Thanks so much for your replies! I've been perusing through other threads on this forum and found one concerning whether to pursue a second degree or take more courses as a non-degree student. The answers weren't definitive so I was wondering if anyone had any experience doing either specifically for entrance to civil law programs (opposed to doing a Master's degree as I mentioned earlier, which tbh I am not hugely interested in). Does anyone know how schools like UdeM or Sherbrooke would weigh a second undergrad?
