  1. Thank you for your response! To be quite honest, I'm set on UdeM because I really want to stay in the city and maybe this is an unpopular opinion but I appreciate that they focus on grades rather than take a holistic approach like McGill does. That being said, as much as I would love to go to McGill, I feel with my grades that I wouldn't stand a chance. I could definitely still (and will) apply since I don't have anything to lose but I feel like I'm not quite counting on it. As for U of Ottawa and U de S, I am sure they are great schools but like I said I just really wanna stay as close to home as possible. Also, I feel like UdeM is a good fit because if I'm practicing in Montreal, learning the material in French would probably be beneficial? (Correct me if I'm wrong haha)
  2. Hi! I'm wondering if anyone had any idea about my chances getting into UdeM civil law bac. Currently standing at a 3.56/4.33 and coming from sociology at Concordia, I still have 2 courses to go will be graduating in august (yes, I am aware that I will only be applying for the next round of admissions but as I am new to the forum I'd like some insight :)). For everyone applying this year, best of luck to you!
  3. 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!
