Thanks @Isla - I applied March 1st, so I am still waiting for the acknowledgment email with the details to create an uozone account. Hopefully I receive it sooner rather than later.

I was asked to write the French competency test. Hoping that’s a good sign. Wondering if there’s a cutoff score.

I was also asked to write the test. Are you going to Ottawa to do it?

Do you mind me asking what level of French you have or where you learned French? Congratulations!

Accepté le 15 Mars pour le JD en Français. 

Quelqu'un sait quand on devrait recevoir de l'information additionnelle? J'ai envoyé mon dépôt et confirmé mon offre mais je n'ai rien entendu depuis. Est ce que ce sera par courriel ou par uoZone?

Selon ce que j'ai compris, nous allons recevoir un courriel quelques semaines avant la période de sélection de cours (qui débute pour nous le 20 juin).  Notre courriel de l'université sera activé aussi à ce moment là. Pour l'instant, on se tourne les pouces ;)

    • I don't think Chelsea Hotel is a usual testing centre, as it wasn't listed in the list of testing centres. This is my 3rd write and it's the first time I'm seeing it offered. 
    • Thank you so much! Ah, I hope my professors don't mind reading all of mine. Good thing they can just submit the same letter!  That's a good point! I will give them a heads up a few weeks in advance then. I hope you ended up at your preferred school :). 
    • Do you want to work in TO for a few years before going back, or do you want to go back ASAP?  
    • Your personal statement is a two-fold test, meant to confirm that you can use the English language in a way that isn't embarrassing, and that you can discuss a relatively straight-forward topic without becoming ridiculous. You don't need to be Oliver Twist, in either style or substance. If you try, you'll almost certainly achieve a negative result. There may be the odd applicant to law school who really did escape war-torn Syria in the trunk of a car, or who has the narrative style to pull off some exceptional piece of writing. Everyone else is just a reasonably accomplished undergrad who wants to study law. And that's all you need to be. Seriously. Stop over-thinking this. Just tell them why you want to go to law school.
    • Exploring your interests In 1L, variety in terms of course offerings doesn't really matter. You'll generally be taking the same foundational course whether you're at Ottawa or Western. However, another thing to maybe consider is that certain schools have better professors in certain areas. In 1L, what would definitely matter in relation to exploring your interests are the extracurriculars being offered (clinics, clubs, etc). Look into what both schools have to offer.  After 1L is when variety in course offerings really matter in terms of exploring your interests. I would say that, on this point, Ottawa is the better choice. Western is a more conservative, pro-business school. There is corporate law and then there is everything else. This isn't just my opinion as Western has made a concerted effort to bill itself as the premier business law school in Canada: Source: https://law.uwo.ca/future_students/business_law/ Social life/environment Western: more tight-knit, conservative, preppy "bro" vibe, less diverse student body (may be conjecture though) Ottawa: less tight-knit, liberal, social justice/progressive vibe, more diverse student body These are just my observations so take it for what you want Employment prospects Broadly speaking, Western will generally be better for job prospects in Toronto, if Toronto means Bay Street. Your grades, resume, personality, connections, etc are ultimately what really matter in terms of your job prospects. However, I would still give Western the edge here. Location Unless you have existing connections to London or like living in a college town, Ottawa is the clear winner here. More things to do, more things going on and, without a doubt, advantages coming from being the seat of the federal government. Ottawa is also close to Montreal so you'll have that avenue open if you want to visit for fun or work.
