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?

For those of us still waiting, spoke to Judy today and she said we will find out if we got accepted or not by August 9th!

I was also told we'd be informed by the first week of August. Anyone have any insight on how many seats are left in the Dual?

    • I studied something analytical in undergrad and got by without having to write major papers or read tons of stuff. I also dislike debating, public speaking, and speaking in general. Will I be able to survive law school?
    • I am about finished my Queen's PS, and I have geared it towards wanting to study environmental law due to my biology undergrad. Is this a bad idea given that Queen's doesn't seem to be especially known for their environmental program? I don't even know if that is the case for any law school in Ontario. Just wanted to make sure I don't make a huge misstep. Thanks!
    • Hey guys,  I have a couple of questions. I know basics about the gpa conversion (the chart they use -4.33 scale) but I'm a little confused on the number of credits drops in my case, as I took some credit/nocredit courses with no percentage/grades given. I have 135 credits in terms of graded ones (I did a fifth year) but I have 144 total credits.  If I drop 6 half year credits my GPA works out to 3.78/4.33 If I drop 8 half year credits, my GPA works out to 3.85/4.33 If I drop 10 half year credits, GPA is 3.90/4.33 My LSAT is a 163. Does anyone know how many credits I would be able to drop in my situation and also what my chances would be? I can't seem to find answers in the threads or when I call the office its opaque Thank you
    • I dont really think its a problem. I took psych 100 and a 200 level course in my final semester. 
    • There is an environmental law class, and there's an environmental law club that organizes negotiation competitions involving mock 3-party negotiations between a government, a corporation, and a local community. Students also go to UBC every year to participate in a TRU/UBC/Uvic environmental law negotiation competition. Last year TRU sent multiple teams and took home 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
