French Common Law JD

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Anyone else applied to the French Section of the Common Law JD program at uOttawa? If yes, what are you stats, is it the only law school you applied to and have you finished your application. I barely see anything on the French Section and thought I'd make a new topic.

Cheers

Hey, 

PCLF student here. From my friends, I know acceptances went out as early as December and a lot of them got it in March so sit tight ;)

Ahhh!! A little bit scared, I didn't know people were getting accepted before the deadline (March 2nd) 😣

March 2 was the deadline. Are you sure people were being accepted in the French law programs as early as December ?

Yup. My guess is they were the "stronger applicants". Not sure how many people actually got accepted then, I only know of one.

I applied right at the cutoff date (March 2nd) so I'm patiently awaiting results as well! I applied to both the French JD and the French JD/LLL programs. Its the only programs I applied to.

 Good luck to everyone!!

I was talking to someone at the open house (who either works in admissions or is a prof) who said that the french common law program is pretty competitive because it's the only one in Ontario and they have like 80 spots and usually like 78 out of the 80 students will accept their offers.

There are only two in Canada, the other one being Moncton. From what I've heard (anecdotal), the acceptance rate is around 50%.

Yeah, it's mentioned on OLSAS that they received 175 applicants in 2019 and the 2018 class size was 93.

Yeah, it was 80 last year. Pretty good odds.

    • I worked full-time at a fast food restaurant for two years prior to attending law school. I did not drink any alcohol, I used the local Tim Hortons WiFi and I relied on my city's food bank. I managed to save enough to pay for 2/3 of my law school tuition. I relied on OSAP and bursaries for the rest.
    • Hello, I was recently admitted to Osgoode and am looking to start applying for an apartment in Assiniboine or the Osgoode Chambers as soon as possible given the limited number of 1 bedroom apartment units. I firmly accepted the offer two days ago as Osgoode is my dream law school (I seriously feel so fortunate even now), and my offer response status on OASIS was updated to "accepted" I am assuming to indicate Osgoode has processed my firm acceptance on OLSAS. Now, in my e-mail offer package sent to me by Vicky, the admissions coordinator, was a student number; this student number was the same one as my current York university student number as I am finishing up my undergraduate at York at this point in time. When I follow the housing application through for newly admitted applicants I see on the York "MyFile" page my admittance into Osgoode has been confirmed, though I cannot select the "York University Apartment Lease Term" option in the the housing application portal that extends from the "MyFile" page; as in, the option isn't there at all. I haven't received the official offer letter in the mail yet, will that contain a different student number for me to use than the one currently in my online offer package sent to me by the admissions coordinator? Or, is this simply a file processing matter and the option will be available to me at a later date? I see on my OASIS page a message at the bottom that says "stay tuned for further information about your new passport York account and Osgoode student email"- I also considered my issue is related to that. Thank you in advance anyone who replies and can provide clarifying information about this process  
    • Does anybody know what the fb group is called?
    • Can someone recommend some good neighbourhoods and apartment complexes to look into? Do most law students live alone or in groups? I’d figure grad students wouldn’t live in a house with undergrad frat boys lol   Also, if anyone is looking for a clean, serious and respectful housemate next year, my DMs are open 😝
    • hi got no dog in this fight or anything but the subject matter caught my attention, so this is just an FYI sorta: i'm coming from a software background and your reluctance to treat this as being an understandable, human error because the root cause might be a software bug is kind of suspect logic (imo, sorry!) despite those debugging courses, and despite even rigorous bug testing in the development process (fantastical case, very seldom the reality in my experience working in a variety of orgs. and domains), it is an inevitability that bugs slip through the cracks, and the more obscure they are the easier they slip, and sometimes they are found in a closed-source library that you've imported, etc. so really, as far as the end-user goes, he or she may have done some innocent thing and triggered a very obscure bug resulting in the erroneous email (okay sure, kind of a convenient scenario but still very possible) best of luck and i hope it gets resolved in your favour! imma peace out nowwwwwww 😬 edit: don't get me wrong, i'd be so upset if i got this email lol... but i mean antagonizing the institution you're trying to join seems like a bad way to go either way
