uOttawa Chances (80.46%)

Recommended Posts

I am a CEGEP student applying to Civil Law with Co-Op for Fall 2021. My average after three semesters is only slightly above the minimum required (80.46%) so I am worried that I might not be accepted to the program because of it. Is it actually possible for me to be rejected or am I simply overthinking?

I received my offer of admission today, turns out I really was just overthinking!

Congratulations! When did you apply?  How long did they give you to accept? Are you from a French Cegep?  Did they are you to do a French Test?

I applied on January 1st, I have until April 1st to accept, and I dion’t think I’ll have to do a French test since I’m from a French Cegep. Hope this helps!

I was just wondering where you figured out that a 3.5 is a 78%? I’ve also been wondering if my 3.45 is enough for civil at Ottawa. 
 

Thank you

I sent them an email - their response was "On the 4.3 CGPA scale used at the HEC of Montreal, an average of 78% is a 3.5."

It wouldn’t hurt to fill out the declaration of personal experience on uOzone as well, it’s not mandatory but the liaison office suggested that I complete it since my grades are kind of borderline.

Does does ottawa only require grades for their civil law program? Or did you also have to include a personal statement/letter of rec's, etc?

I haven't applied to civil law there, but from what I see on their website I'm pretty sure it's only grades.

You can choose to fill out a declaration of personal experience, but if your grades are high enough the admissions officers will accept you without reading it.

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
