I recommend speaking with Windsor and trying to defer.

Got the meet & greet email as well and called and they said I was accepted. Got the official email today.

CGPA: 3.4/L2 3.6

LSAT: 150

Pretty strong EC's & references. There really is hope for us all!

 

 

Congrats!! I have very similar stats as you and my application recently changed to Referred - Admissions Committee. Did you also have the same application status before getting accepted? 

I also got the Meet and Greet email but assumed everyone got it - should I call in to check the status of my application since I received this email? 

I'm so anxious to hear back - I feel like I've been checking OLSAS and UWin site every 10 minutes lol.

Thanks. If your status just changed I wouldn’t call. I had been referred to admissions for almost a month before I got the meet and greet email. I was also sent my official acceptance email the next day so I’d wait for that.

Accepted this morning! Over the moon excited.

CGPA 3.12

L2 3.5

LSAT: 151, 154, 161

My letter was tailored to Windsor, i have strong EC's, two academic references, and legal work experience

My second acceptance, I was admitted to Bora Laskin Facutly of Law on April 15th, 2019. I am a bit torn between the two, I feel as though Bora Laskin Facutly of Law has a very unique program, especially with the IPC program. I'm going to have to do some serious thinking.

I also wanted to say that I have been a LONG time lurker on this forum. I bombed the LSAT twice and never in a million years thought I could score  above a 150. I also was rejected from every single law school I applied to last year, and this year I received so far, two acceptances. Do not ever think this achievement is out of your reach. I was one of those people who would read posts like this and thought It would never be me. It takes hard work, dedication and discipline but you will get there.

Congrats to everyone accepted and good luck to those waiting.

I was accepted to the MSW/JD advanced standing last week and have decided to go that route rather than the straight JD. I hope that means a spot in the JD program opens up for someone. Best of luck to everyone still waiting. See those of you who are going to Windsor in the fall.

Accepted this morning! First saw ‘admitted’ via UWinSite, and then received an acceptance email at 10:17 am. I have been ‘Referred to Admissions Committee’ since April 17th; so I have heard back this decision from Windsor quite quickly.

Stats are: 3.78 CGPA, 3.84 L2, 157 LSAT (an accommodated score), MA in History (A- average), currently doing combined Master programs of archival studies and museum studies (A- average), and very social justice-oriented ECs, i.e. volunteer at LGBTQ archives and participations in labour movements. 

I am so so happy!! This is my first acceptance!!

I have just declined this acceptance in favour of uOttawa Law today. I really wish my cancellation assist another applicant in garnering an acceptance to this amazing law school!

    • I'm an international student currently in the U.S (I'm an Indian national) and I've been looking into Canadian universities. I wanted to know what are the experiences of other international student out here, how hard was it to get accepted, what were some troubles you faced, how easy was it to apply for a study permit? What were some challenges you faced when applying? Also the people who have already been accepted and are on campus, what's Canada like for you? And how's law school in general? Do you feel accepted? Homesick? Let me know! I'd love to hear all your experiences!  
    • Salut! Je te souhaite de belles études à l'UdeM. Je pensais qu'il serait peut-être utile que je laisse ici quelques petits points intéressants en ce qui concerne le certificat de droit à l'UdeM, si ton but (ou celui d'une autre personne) est d'intégrer le BAC en droit. Je m'étais informée à l'université, et il m'a été confirmé que l'admission accepte en majorité des étudiants de d'autres bacs (et possiblement certificats, mineures, majeures, etc) que d'étudiants du certificat en droit de l'udem. Ceci est dû au fait que les candidats souvent seront des candidats de TRANSFERT, et que donc le contingentement en deuxième année est beaucoup plus haut qu'en première année. Je suppose que ceci est de moindre importance si on dépose sa candidature à la première année, mais je ne sais pas si c'est faisable.  Bref, en raison de cela, les notes requises doivent être très élevées (visant 4.0+). On m'a dit que très peu de gens (environ une dizaine je pense) sont acceptés du certificat. Ainsi, il est très important de donner de son meilleur durant les études au certificat pour maximiser ses chances d'être admis.  Je souhaite à tous succès, en espérant avoir pu laissé des informations pertinentes.  
    • I realize I am a year late lol, however, I figure answering this would help other people as well. I have studied at both UdeM and UQAM. While UdeM does have a great reputation, UQAM is not in any way a bad university (at least for the political sciences & law dept). I have loved my experience at both universities. UdeM is quite far and that can take a toll on you if you're not a morning person as I am lol.  UQAM sadly has a bad a reputation, mostly because of the social engagement of the university, and the youth of the dept. I can tell you that the teachers (chargés de cours mostly) I had for law courses at UQAM were very good. Most of them have written quite a few doctrinal writings, and are involved in a lot of researches. Some have studied at UdeM and Mcgill. Anyways, point is, the quality of the teaching is great.  You might be the type of person to be set off by political and social engagement; in that case, a more rigid and straight-to-the-point university such as UdeM might be better for you. UdeM does shine with its reputation. The university offers great courses. You have to be prepared for the curve grading too; because of this, people are extremely competitive, and might not be the best people to socialize with! UdeM also participates in ''la course aux stages'', which is good if you're interested in big law. I am not very well versed on the course aux stages, so it's better to investigate the forum on that matter, than take my word.  UdeM is indeed quite big, but UQAM too : prepare for some walking lol. Most is connected to the metro so it's not so bad.  UQAM overall has a better ambiance and sociable people. The grading is litteral, so the competition isn't as strong. Most of the students are socially involved, so that makes them more empathetic.  You have to know that UQAM has the reputation to go on strikes often, whether that is true or not, I cannot say. During my time there (1 year), there was indeed a strike.  FInally, I can honestly say I can see very good sides to each university, and I have enjoyed my time in both. Go with what suits your ambitions and personality best.   
    • It's all highly theoretical, as changes in your GPA could have no impact to a high impact, depending on various factors out of your control. At its simplest, if you've got $5 in your pocket, you can use that to buy a venti frappacino from Starbucks, or you could buy a barrel of oil. Alberta isn't set up to cope with that price. And it might revert back to the $40-odd (or that region ) that they need to be comfortably profitable. But it might not. And that means that Alberta's economy is currently looking highly precarious. Well done for getting the job! But unfortunately, virus has now delayed you a year, and in a year, your firm might not be there. Or they might not be able to hire students. If either of those happens, you'll want good grades to go looking for a backup. Or they might keep right on track for all of this, and then not be able to hire articling students, or have failed in that extra year. In which case you'll want good grades to go looking elsewhere. And finally after you article, they might not be in a position to hire you back, however good work you did - in which case, you'll want...... And even if all of that does happen right, you might not want to stay at your firm for 5-10 years after (or they might not want to keep you that long, or you might need to move cities for a partner), and if you're looking to move within a few years of being called, they'll probably want to see your transcript, at which point, you'll want......   The unfortunate reality is, nobody can promise you what a career is going to look like over the next few years. What can be confidently said is that good grades will normally leave more doors open than bad grades. You might never need to show someone a transcript again, but you don't know that - so keep working as best you can, and you'll give yourself the best chance to overcome any problems that do arise. Worst case scenario then, you have a good transcript nobody wants to see. If you're just worried about worrying, then - you can't control the economy, or epidemiology (on a wide scale. On a small scale, wash your hands & socially distance). So try not to worry. The optional pass/fail can be used to disguise any grades that are truly bad (which might itself raise questions, but that's another issue). Study now, and try to avoid needing to use that trapdoor.
    • Hello, how is it going with your admisison? Have you already got it? If you steel need some sources for thesis proposal writing you can use the links left by kurrika. And do not forget to visit the website of the university, college or academic program you are going to apply to. I think you can find some useful information there.
