Je complète mon bac à uOttawa alors jestime que le processus est beaucoup plus direct. OLSAS et uOttawa ont reçus tous mes documents, autres qu'un relevé de notes d'une autre institution où j'ai suivi des cours. 

ça a pris combien de temps environ pour que OLSAS/uOttawa reçoivent ton relevé du bac à uOttawa?

Si tu fais ta demande électronique à travers OLSAS (noté come: "Immédiatement" sur le système) ça devrait être dans les 24 heures sans complications.

Même chose pour moi. Mon application a été envoyée en janvier et mon statut sur uozone est "Under Evaluation"... Espérons que l'Université d'Ottawa rendra ce processus rapide et indolore!

Bon il me semble que la détresse de l'attente est maintenant fini pour moi. 

Je viens d'être admis au program de J.D en Français!! 

MPC: 3.44  (En Crimino et mineur en droit civil à uOttawa (Bilingue)) 

Lettres de Recommendations forte (une du Vice-Doyen de la faculté de droit) 

EC forte (?): 300 + hrs de bénévolate pendant l'université, président du UOLPS (uOttawa Pre-Law Society) etc. 

Déclaration personnelle assez unique: je joue sept instruments de musique et j'ai des talents culinaire et participe dans des complétition, une étant celle Iron Chef Canada, je suis dj professionel et autres..

Moi je suis pas mal unique aussi comme candidat, ma moyenne est environs 3,0 mais mes dernières deux années j'ai réussi 3,8. J'en ai des références très fortes (Vice Présidente des affaires étudiants, professeur qui me connais depuis mes années secondaires, directeur d'athlétisme), j'étais un athlète dans le NCAA aux États-Unis où j'avais réussi une carrière couronnée de succès en couru cross-country et j'étais sénateur pour le gouvernement étudiant. Je suis en train de poursuivre une deuxième grade en français aussi. J'espère mes accomplissements hors de la classe vont compenser ma moyenne basse.

En effet, tu as une grande gamme d'accomplissements! 

My cgpa is quite low and since uOttawa has a holistic approach, I thought I wouldn't be competitive with my 1st-year marks pulling me down. I took a 5th year semester and got 9.0 average, kind of as a way to show them that I am a capable student. I hope that this can encourage you and can show that cgpa is not everything.

Ayez-courage!

C'est exactement ce que je suis en train de faire avec mon deuxième grade! Merci beaucoup pour votre perspective!

Just to let you know that offers started rolling out. I know someone who got accepted with a cgpa on the lower end of the scale, average extracurriculars and strong PS.

Good luck to everyone still waiting!

When? What CGPA? How is the PS strong? Merci :)

Je ne comprends pas comment ils peuvent accepter des gens sans avoir lu l'application de tout le monde... :/ Ils ouvrent des applications au hasard?

3.44

lettre de motivation très bien écrit, résume les forces, ce que le candidat va apporter au programme de droit et ses ambitions avec son diplôme.

Ils ont certainement une façon de trier les applications. Ne te décourage pas! Les étudiants en droit ont tous un profil tellement différent l’un de l’autre.

L’offre a été reçu hier. Mon amie acceptera l’offre du pdc ce qui devra libéré une place au JD.

bonne chance à tous!

How do you have a uozone account? Is it because you currently attend UofO? All I have is OLSAS to view my offers

Yes, it’s someone that currently attends UofO. 

Back when I applied, the change on OLSAS reflected the status of my application and not uOzone. They also usually send an e-mail. 

Best of luck to you!

I got the "admitted" status on uozone (I am already a uOttawa student) and it said that I can accept the offer 2-3 days later on OLSAS once it was processed but it appeared this morning.

You really need to set up your UOzone account. Once our application was complete AND submitted by Olsas, UOttawa sent us all an email explaining to us how to set up our account to check our application status.

Are you sure you submitted your application through Olsas? After the last step "SAM" it let's you review everything, and then you had to submit a final time. Check all of your email folders, etc. You must of received that email if you did it!

    • Travel to Sky Bar from four seasons by Bus   Four Seasons Hotel   The hotel is housed in a beautiful and modern 20 storeyed building located on Orchard Road. The hotel is considered to be a residential paradise within itself and is just minutes away from some of the best shopping centres, family attractions and the major financial district of Singapore.   The hotel is at a distance of about 22 kms from the Changi International Airport and takes upto one hour to cover this distance. The distance being quite huge the fare would make a hole in your pocket if you end up booking a cab. Why splurge on unnecessary things as you are starting your vacation here. I decided to cover this distance by Bus and booked my bus tickets from this website called redbus.sg . I was quite surprised as the bus arrived as per departure time and reached Four Seasons Hotel in time.   The hotel is just10 kms away from the center of the city which measn you are just steps away from the shopping and entertainment district of Orchard Road as well as the Botanical Gardens of Singapore.  There is a restaurant within this hotel known as the One Ninety Restaurant which is famous for its uniquesly decorated warm woods. The hotel is known to serve and specialise in international and singaporean specialities like laksa and wonton noodles. It is a 5 star hotel and a stay here cost me around 350 SGD. The hotel has about 255 guest rooms and a full serviced spa where you will be pampered like a kid. The hotel also has 2 indoor and 2 outdoor tennis courts and a modern business centre if you are planning to stay in this hotel while on a business trip.   The best way to reach Sky Bar KLCC was by Bus as all other means of transport were either full of traffic or proved to be costly. I boarded a bus from Orchard Road Bus Stop which is just 7 minutes away from the Four Seasons Hotel. The bus dropped me off at KLCC Bus Stop in Malaysia which  is just 10 minutes away from Sky Bar. The total duration of the journey was about 10 hours and i did not have to wait for long as there was a bus every 1 hour.   Sky Bar KLCC   Every evening the Sky Bar in KLCC Malaysia is beautifully eliminated with jaw dropping lights.  It is a glamorous cocktail lounge which is set on the 33rd floor of the Traders Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. Sky Bar is considered to be one of the coolest venues when we speak of the nightlife of Kuala Lumpur. This place is recommended for its good location and pictursque views of the city. The bar is completely surrounded by Cabanas and a huge pool on one side. The bar area has some high stools and are in different colours. I found this quite pleasing for my eyes. While I was sitting and having my drink the panaromic view was simply impressive.  It made me feel on top of the world.

       
    • Solus is right and I'm not really sure that an 84 is that much better than an 80 anyway. 
    • Im so confused. The average gpa is 3.36 and lsat is 158. OP has basically no chance of not getting in...
    • I got in last year with worse stats 
    • I have nothing to add on the whole marriage name thing, but as far as social media goes, I would absolute recommend going by first and middle name, or some combination of not your real name. Otherwise, make sure everything is locked down as tight as can be to friends only.
