Taking too long (Dual JD)

last time I called they said to call Judy Burke, apparently she deals with the admissions for the Dual JD program. 519-253-3000 extension: 4230. I called and left a voicemail but no response. Hopefully you can get through!

Yeah! I called regular JD admissions who told me to call them back if Judy didn't answer, which she didn't... they said they physically went to the dual JD office to see what was up and found no one & that I'd get a call back (not counting on it).  

Do you guys think calling/ contacting Stephanie @ UDM would be more helpful, like CatLady mentioned? I'm not sure what her contact information is though.

Yeah this Judy lady is impossible to get through to. So I think we should now try the Detroit mercy contact

I'm just popping in to provide some information and resources. If you would like to contact the general office, call Tel: 519.253.3000 Ext. 2989 - they're extremely responsive. If you want specific Dual JD information, I would highly recommend speaking to Christina Loebach, she is our Dual JD program director. Christina's email is "[email protected]", she is also generally very responsive. It's important to be proactive and follow up regarding the status of your application, just be courteous and patient, it won't hurt your application. 

If you have questions about the program, feel free to toss me a message.

Wow this is insane, so disorganized! Like how is this happening. 

What do you mean " gives the rest of you an idea of when you can expect to hear back"? When should we expect to hear back LOL

 

I infer that if people reject their offer then they will likely draw from the waitlist or respond to people whose apps aren’t reviewed. That’s what I meant :)

Yes! I agree. I’m actually so amazed by how lovely and supportive the staff are there. I think we are in great hands!

Looking at previous posts, it seems like the waitlists are ranked from priority, high and low. I wonder if that is still a thing?

    • How do you handle losing cases? Do you get better over time at trying to keep it in perspective, and learning for next time? Is there any way to shut off the spiral of self-doubt?  It’s one thing to acknowledge that every court application is a calculated risk, and that you weigh the pros and cons with the client in advance, and that you’ve decided to take your chances. At some level, though, you believed that the outcome would come out in your favour (especially as the Plaintiff), otherwise you would have accepted a settlement. The rumination on “maybe I should have said this” or “maybe I should have told the client that” or “maybe I should have accepted a settlement” or “maybe if I were a better/smarter/more experienced/more confident lawyer this would have gone differently” or “maybe I just fuck up the lives of people who trust me” keeps me up for weeks and the impact of any losses outweighs 100x the impact of any wins. 
    • This is strictly anecdotal but I know of at least 1 2L in the past year who was a BC transfer. 
    • On test day, I was under so much pressure that my brain went on auto-pilot and my ability to methodically break down each question went out the window, even though I'd spent hundreds of hours studying similar questions at home. If your goal is to start law school in 2020, I think it'd be well worth it for you to experience that pressure before the do-or-die January exam. 
    • Waitlisted today for the English common law program, I'll probably take myself off the waitlist since I firmly accepted at another school a long time ago.  cGPA: 3.57 L2: 3.61 LSAT: 162
