French Common Law JD

Recommended Posts

Really late post... I did not know that this platform even existed before today¬†ūüėÖ(someone that has recently graduated from this program told me about it today)

cGPA: 3.34 (not the highest cGPA... just graduated from uOttawa with an Hon. B.Sc. with a business minor; I think my volunteering experience in the legal community and also strong references really helped)

Category: General

Got admitted on April 17th to: JD, JD/MBA and JD/MA International Affairs (I ended up accepting the JD offer since I already have a background in business from my bachelor's degree. Most importantly, tuition is way too expensive to be taking an additional year to graduate and start articling!)

Looking forward to meeting everyone online in fall 2020!

Congratulations to everyone that has officially accepted their offers! Wishing all the best to all those that are still waiting for a response :)

PS. Has anyone started any kind of group chat elsewhere on other social media platforms (fb?)

Congrats! You should probably put your post in the ‚ÄúAccepted‚ÄĚ thread. This thread is specifically for the French JD program. Hope this helps!

    • Logging out of your exam and staring at a blank screen in your room is a terrible feeling. In the before times, it was always nice to get done a hard exam and then look around to see the shocked looks on classmates faces. I guarantee that would have happened if your exam was in person. Don't sweat it. Ive been pleasantly surprised every time I thought I bombed an exam.¬†
    • Les notes sont courb√©es √† UdeM en droit de sorte √† ce que les chances que t'ailles 4/4.3 sont vraiment minimes. Par contre, le bac en droit est un bac consid√©r√© fort en termes de CRU donc c'est facile d'√™tre admis/convoqu√© en entrevue avec beaucoup moins que 4/4.3. Juste pour te donner une id√©e, Droit √† ulaval donne facilement plus que 31 de CRU(le minimum pour √™tre consid√©r√© en m√©decine) si tu maintiens 3.55-3.7/4.3.
    • Thanks, Shankar,¬†for the reassurance and quick response (and yep, it was Corporate with Nicholls). I'm definitely missing the in-person post-exam experience, so it's hard to gauge how other people might have done. There were a few questions I didn't even get to because I thought it'd be better to answer other questions quickly rather than try to dig for the provision he's looking for.¬†
    • I can't imagine it being that easy. I imagine a fair number of students would be eager to slash their tuition by transferring.¬†
    • Considering you're taking Corporate in 1L, I'm just assuming you go to Western.¬† If not, disregard everything I say.¬† Nicholls' exams are all long and hardly anyone finishes them.¬† It's true of Corporate, Securities, and probably anything else he teaches.¬† He's a phenomenal professor in every sense, but his exams are very long.¬† ¬†So yeah, don't worry about it.¬† Every year everyone comes out of that exam worried that they bombed it because there wasn't enough time to finish, but that's where the curve comes in.¬†¬† I don't remember how much of the exam I actually completed, but it definitely wasn't near the whole thing (eg: my "essay" was a couple sentences long) and I did fine.¬† Take a breath, you'll very likely be fine.¬† You'd probably feel better if you were able to see that everyone else had the same experience as you, but that's just how it is this year.¬†¬†
