Did anyone else apply for the joint JD/JID program? Or for those who didn't apply what do you think of this program? I applied and I am non-Indigenous, and I really don't know what to expect. Does anyone expect it to be more competitive to get into than the regular JD? Interested in all your thoughts.

I assume it will be quite competitive. The general applicant pool is overwhelmingly open-minded and curious (and so many may apply) yet the JID program seats a vastly smaller number of students than does the standard JD program.

I believe non-indigenous students may actually have an advantage admissions-wise: indigenous JD graduates are already somewhat well positioned to work well with the indigenous community, such that the JID is likely to be used to strengthen indigenous relations with non-indigenous law students (rather than those already likely considering and equipped for an indigenous law career)

Has anyone who applied for the JID/JD heard back? I havent heard anything! If not does anyone know when we are expected to hear one way or another?

I decided to give them a call even though they'd been clear before that offers will start going out in late May through July. I was basically told the same thing. But she did say that if I haven't heard anything by mid-June, I can call back for an update.

To tell you the truth, I'm not at all confident in my prospects, but being human, it's hard not to have hope still.

    • B2: 4.24 / 4.3 LSAT: 156 one write this past September. Looking for some feedback on if my chances of receiving an offer are strong or not.  I do not have a strong Saskatchewan connection.  To complicate matters though: I did disclose in the application under post-secondary disciplinary actions that I received one non-academic warning. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.    
    • As long as you pay and submit before the November 1st deadline, you have met the requirement for Ontario schools and will not be considered late. My transcript request took 2 business days after submitting to go through and show up on OLSAS (just for reference), but even if it does show up after the deadline, you have still met the requirements as long as you pay and submit before Nov 1st! So don't worry  Under FAQs on OLSAS it will confirm this!
    • Transcripts from an Ontario University or College Online Transcript Request If you attended or are currently enrolled at an Ontario university or college, you must request your transcript through your online application. By completing the online transcript request and forwarding the appropriate fees, you authorize the OUAC to arrange for your official transcripts to be sent to OLSAS; you do not need to contact the Registrar’s Office directly. You can access this section in your online application by selecting “Transcripts”. OLSAS must receive your online transcript request by the appropriate deadlines to satisfy the transcript deadline requirement. Transcripts requested when you apply online will not include the current year’s results.
    • Ummmmmm, I was under the impression that the Nov 1 deadline for transcripts is only for non-Ontario universities? 
    • Don't do it, mobile homes are horrible investments. Not only do you have to buy a depreciating asset but you have to pay lot fees on top of that. I find it funny that the ad tells people, "Don't pay rent, own your own home!" When the $858 per month lot fee is worse than a lot of rents. I would suggest you apply to live in one of the campus residences, but are you looking for a home because you have furniture you need to take with you? You should rent a house close to campus instead. If you're thinking of moving to Saskatoon permanently, that will give you a base of operations so you can look into buying something later on. Especially since you never know what city you'll land a lawyer job in, so it's smarter not to pay a bunch of closing costs only to move again after you graduate.
