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.

    • that's a lot of ms, but you seem to be more informed about the process than myself and your second post is pretty clear
    • Congrats on being admitted! If you dont mind sharing, what was your LSAT score?
    • Thanks for the help, everybody. I decided to fire off a quick application to Manitoba. My index score of 84 looks to be a good ways above their cutoff, so that's at least a fallback for me if none of the others pan out.

    • 1. Have you ever been found guilty of, or convicted of, any offence under any statute? Please exclude speeding and parking tickets. (If you have been found guilty or convicted of an offence under the Young Offenders Act or the Youth Criminal Justice Act, please refer to the section online called “Completing the Paralegal Licensing Process Application” for further details.)   I received a warning range suspension 5 years ago. Non-criminal. Should I disclose?   "Warn-range" suspension Drivers who register a blood alcohol concentration in the warn range of .05 to .08 pose an immediate danger to themselves and other road users. If caught driving in the “warn range,” you will receive an immediate driver’s licence suspension at the roadside: For three days for a first occurrence For seven days for a second occurrence and you must undergo a remedial alcohol education program For 30 days for a third or subsequent occurrence in a five-year period, and you must undergo a remedial alcohol-treatment program and have an ignition interlock condition placed on your licence for six months. If you choose not to install an ignition interlock device, you must not drive until the condition is removed from your licence. An administrative monetary penalty is also imposed on drivers suspended for registering in the warn range.
