Accepted 2016

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! Does anybody have any idea 'usually' how long they are in the 'evaluation process' for? Like I got the evaluation email around 10 days ago, do you know how long you were at this status for before getting your offer? Can this process take really long? Do I sound too ANXIOUS?!

 

Thanks :)

Has anyone who was accepted to Ottawa gotten a phone call from them recently? I have a missed call from what appears to be their number but no voicemail was left, so just wondering if anyone knows what this could be about!

I have a missed call from them as well from just after 7pm today and was accepted in December. No voicemail either...

I had a call as well. It was a 2L from uOttawa just touching base to congratulate me and to see if I had any questions! I said not for the time being, and she said if any came up to not hesitate to ask them!

I haven't even gotten the evaluation email. I applied under the 'Special Circumstances' category though. And Ottawa's a 'reacher' school for me anyways.

I just got a conditional acceptance pending completion of the PLSNP  this summer. I am beyond excited. I have been telling my 3 year old that we are moving to Ottawa because thats where I really wanted to go.  

 

I will definitely be accepting.

    • I recently turned 25 and I am nearing the end of my undergrad degree (last semester). My grades are decent enough to get into law school and I am feeling the parental pressure to make a decision on my future. To tell the truth I am more interested in the medical field (neurology specifically) but I would require at least an additional 1-1.5 years of schooling to solidify my scientific understanding and prepare for the mcat. And med admissions in Canada is really tough most people apply for 3 years before they get accepted so there is no guarantee even after all the hard work. In comparison I am already in a position where I could apply for the next law school cycle. I would apply broadly (at least 10 schools) and solely based on my stats, barring any unforeseen circumstances, I would likely get into at least 1 program. The thing is I don't know if law is for me. I don't think I could shadow a lawyer given the current situation. I've browsed this forum for a few weeks and I see some users express regrets about going to law school, mulling career changes, etc. I have researched the field a bit. I know it's a lot of work, long 50-60+ hour weeks, the pay is not nearly what a lot of people think it is, it usually takes at least 5 years before you are making 100k+, and some students struggle to find articling positions. People say "don't knock it till you try it" and although I have never really had a passion for the law, a part of me would like to come into this with an open mind and see if I enjoy it. If not, I have told myself I can always make a career change or go to grad/med school sometime in my 30s but I'm sure that is easier said than done. I'm rambling a bit at this point but I'm pretty confused about what the next step should be and would be grateful for any insight. Thanks.   
    • I'll just say, as a 3L, school by Zoom and/or pre-recordings is pretty sweet. I did the socializing thing in the first two years of law school and I'm fortunate enough to have a core group of friends. The current arrangement means I'm saving a LOT of time not commuting, I get more done, and I can hold down two part time jobs.
    • Already did. But you do realize that it's important to inquire about future job opportunities before even going down the path of law school, right? I don't want to enter law school and get some useless law degree (for all I know) that won't make me any good money. Which is why I ask important questions about potential future employment before even going down this long path. It's only rational to inquire. Thanks for the clarifications on the job requirements though. I seem to get it now. How so? I understand that there's technically no bar exam, but there is the PTLC barrister and solicitor exams after articling. So you're still not technically a lawyer after passing these exams, which are the final hurdle? What more do you need to do to be a member of the law society?  
    • definitely the best part of law school. Or if you're older, 3 years of reliving your youth. I hate covid so so much.
    • Hello everyone I'm a new PR in Canada who finished all undergraduate overseas. Have taken my first LSAT last month and waiting for Oct score. Will definitely rewrite😃 and aim for better LSAT, but just curious about what's the chance with current stats? Other info: work exp - 5 yrs as investment analyst / IELTS 8.5 also applying for Osgoode / Ottawa / Queens / Western UBC allegedly convert a WES-A into 86 and WES-B into 73 instead of recalculating my original score on transcript, 85.89 is the result of this alleged calculation; if I use original transcript it will be 90+
