Hi, newbie here!
It's crazy to me that I JUST discovered this forum, wow, so please bear with me as I ask my million and one questions haha.
Coming out of CEJEP, I believe I finished with a ~28 R-score, I applied for a bac at UdeM and ended up getting rejected since I did not meet the qualifications for the TFI exam (long story short, I panicked and ruined any chance I had at getting a passing grade). Fast forward three years, I am currently completing a bachelor's degree in Sociology at Concordia, I currently stand at a 3.56/4.3, although, I do have two courses to complete this summer semester so that might change (hopefully for the better!).
Now, I'm kind of stuck and it's safe to say I am still a little intimidated by that rejection letter 3 years ago. My ultimate goal is to complete a bac in civil law at UdeM and practice in MTL. I'm basically debating if I should 1) wait until applications open up in November 2020 for fall 2021 or should I 2) apply to a certificate in law since applications open up August 2020 for winter 2021 and hope and pray I get outstanding grades to be transferred in 2nd year? Essentially, which scenario do you think would increase my chances of getting accepted?
The reason I am asking this is because I have noticed a certain debate about the "success rate" so to speak of the certificate program so I would greatly appreciate all and any advice/recommendations you may have.
Also side note, for those who got accepted and have started/completed their studies in the program, what advice would you give to an anglophone undertaking a french program? How would you rate the difficulty? (For background, lived in MTL my whole life, always went to english school, but I do consider myself fully bilingual in the sense that I can read/write/speak french but it's obvious that it's not my mother tongue).
I think that covers it for now, let me know if you need any further info on my end. Thanks!
