I will be going to make my final decision on school. I think it is important to know who the head of your school is and the kind of thoughts they have. I doubt there will be time for 1 on 1 (just my guess, I have no evidence to back it up), but I am sure you would be able to get a sense of the school's priorities from the Dean?

I'm pretty sure this is the last year Dean Patton is going to be here.

Previous Dean's Welcomes as well as orientations and town halls are also available on YouTube. 

You probably won't get much additional information from attending the Dean's Welcome that you can't already easily access online. The main thing you'd get from attending is the general feel of the school and the opportunity to meet some of your potential classmates.

Thanks for the info guys! I’ll go in with the expectation of free stuff and maybe some networking opportunities 😂

Little late to this thread, but I am in the same boat. Wondering if it is worth going as well. It may be a good opportunity to tour the school though...

    • 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.
