Hey everyone,

Just wondering if it is worth coming in from Vancouver to attend this?

Thanks!

I made the trip from Vancouver when I was a 0L. I wouldn't say it is necessary for you to attend but it can be a good opportunity to meet with some of your potential classmates and professors before September.

I wouldn’t worry too much if it’s gonna cost you money to come attend. The first bit is essentially a sales pitches to make you stick to UofC. The reception afterwards is good though. 

 

There will be a ton of events happening in the first few months, if you plan on attending UofC. That will give you plenty of opportunities to meet people.

I will be! As an aside, what is the dress code? Business casual? Suits? Cargo shorts and an affliction t-shirt?

lol I had this same question, I'm going to be coming from work so nothing too fancy, just hoping people don't go hard for this.

    • For those of you who have written the bar, 1) Did you always find the answers in the materials? I've done some practice tests and find it hard to always find the answer in the materials - i'm tempted to just guess based on my own knowledge - is this something you did?  2) Did you use OLE's indices? the detailed table of contents? whats the best way to find answers fast?  
    • Hey,  I'm moving from BC. I found a place through Kijiji. I had just been scanning the ads regularly. I was going to rent an extra month in July just to secure a place but ended up finding one that started mid August. So my suggestion is keep an eye out there. Also avoid Marda. They were awful and rude when I spoke with them.  As for course enrollment I believe we dont have to first year. I'm under the impression we get registered by the school. I could be wrong but when I was reading the handbook for the MSW/JD program that's what I got from it. I know you can check your uwinsite and at the top where it says applicant click it should drop down and there should be a student option if your account is activated. Mine is not yet. Not sure if others are.  We will also be receiving a welcome package in the beginning of August through mail with more info I believe. 
    • Just to dispel this myth, it isn't really true. Certain fields of law and practices, absolutely. But you can definitely work in Montreal being an Anglo with limited French.
    • Depends on the prof and time of year. Some profs are more helpful than others and some times of year they are busier than others. Some of them don't set rigid office hours but are easily available by appointment. During midterms/exams, office hours will invariably be busier than usual, but still easy to get in to. I find that the best way to have a productive conversation during office hours is to ensure I have compiled clear, narrow questions. It facilitates much more directed conversations and professors tend to be happier to help students who appear to be making efforts to learn rather than simply coming to them asking to be taught the entire course material. For example, I would not go to office hours simply asking for them to explain a topic. I would read about the topic, develop questions I had about it and go to them for clarification/discussion on specific issues I had.
