Not really. If you have a solid L2, it makes up for the cGPA. Same case at Calgary and Alberta.

Western isn't more difficult to get into. They just evaluate applications differently. Western puts more weight on the LSAT than the GPA, and when they look at the GPA, they really only consider the last two years. Ottawa puts more weight on the GPA and they look at the CPGA, and Ottawa puts less weight on the LSAT.

L2 can definitely make up for a crappy cGPA. However after maintaining a 3.9/4 for my last 27 courses (2 years plus 2 summer classes), I'm not sure what else I could have done. Unfortunately a crappy first two can really destroy your chances at UOtt.

So Western doesn't consider CGPA at all?

Wow.. Ottawa is being quite strange this cycle, you're stats are great! I'm sure you will hear elsewhere (if you haven't already).

Why are people posting L2s in an Ottawa thread?

Probably because, despite the popular notion that Ottawa is a "CGPA school", it claims to have a holistic admissions process, and a strong upward trend may be compelling for an adcom?

As someone hoping to get into Ottawa next cycle with a less than stellar first year, I know I personally like to see L2s being posted.

    • yes!! also i wonder if there will be available rentals close to campus in january
    • If anything just go avoid any potential liability, especially while trying to learn on the move, having the protection of a corporation would be helpful imo. 
    • I attended the Q&A webinar last week and the overarching sentiment is that they don’t know what will happen yet. Big lectures will almost 100% be online but they are trying to see if they can hold some smaller classes and extracurriculars in person. I filled out the form to keep myself in consideration for an offer even though I’m waiting to hear more information about classes before deciding. I don’t think that anything is binding until you’ve signed your offer. I figured I can always just decline the offer if I no longer want to live there. Hopefully we will know more information about classes soon! 
    • thanks for the info! Maybe I don't understand what I'm in for in L1, I thought it was all about the courses,with clinical intensives and such in later years. I do remember hearing we could apply to be intake workers in clinic, and that might still be happening because the Parkdale clinic should be really really busy with family law, employment issues and landlord/tenant. Even if not in person, I figured it might be happening remotely.  I'm at Osgoode if it makes any difference. 
    • Does anyone know what classes are going to look like? Will it be strictly online or will there be specific classes where we will be expected to be on campus? I emailed admissions and all they told me is that “more information will be available soon” but york housing said I have to decide whether or not I will keep residence by Sunday at noon.    Super stressed over this- what is everyone else doing? 😬
