Entrance Scholarships q - references and matriculation(??)

Recommended Posts

Helloooo quick question that I emailed admin about but perhaps you fine people have an answer instead.

For the reference letter required for entrance scholarships - do I simply attach it as an appendix to my application form or is my referee suppose to email it directly?

Also - I’m from Ontario so when I hear the word junior and senior matriculation I’m thinking junior is grade 12 and senior was when grade 13 was a thing. Does anyone know what this is referring to? For example, it says “Applicants must have completed, with a superior academic average, at least three full years after junior matriculation or two full years after senior matriculation of a course leading to the degree of BA, BSc, or BComm, or an equivalent degree at Dalhousie or at another degree-granting college or university recognized by the Senate of Dalhousie University.”

Is this meaning undergrad? Like 3 years post under grad or 3 years post high school? I’m confused. Thank you!

I can't even get through their admin office. I'll post an update here when I know but I am planning to submit on the 30th. I just need to let my reference know!

Sounds good. I'm pretty sure they're due the 30th, but that reference letters can be sent later

    • No worries - I applied to almost every school in the country 😂
    • Hey Everyone, Im planning on applying to several national firms in both their Toronto and Vancouver offices. I have connections to both cities, however, I heard this can  have an impact on whether I receive an OCI or not as it raises “red flags”. I was wondering if anyone has some input on this, specially from upper year students! thanks!
    • I honestly pray that some of the people on the adcoms are parents so they actually understand the determination involved in having small kids and even *applying* to law school.  I'm in the same boat though, just trying to convince at least one school to let me in 😅 Give me a chance - I can do this, I promise!! I know it! 
    • Simple and funny one https://www.canlii.org/en/on/onsc/doc/2013/2013onsc5401/2013onsc5401.html?resultIndex=1 Purchaser sues seller for not disclosing that a commercial building is haunted Most law profs use this case as a way into caveat emptor and latent defects
    • ugh this is my feeling too. I have somewhat mediocre stats (although I think some valid reasons for my lower GPA). But I was fairly confident that I could convince at least ONE school that I am law school-competent, given my work experience/maturity/adulting lol! I mean, I’ve kept two small humans alive 😆 While still doing all the other school/career/volunteering..  🤞 I guess!    **just realized this is under University of Ottawa.. where I did not apply lol oops So, this is more of a general statement as a mature student, than related specifically to University of Ottawa. I read posts on this site  by Most Recent, rather than by school 🤷🏻‍♀️ So didn’t notice this before commenting!
