At least at uOttawa law, English as your second language would not undermine your admission chances. See this: "If English is not your first language, the LSAT, while relevant, may carry less weight in the Admission Committee’s evaluation of the application." (https://commonlaw.uottawa.ca/en/students/admissions/admissions-criteria).
Overall, I think that you have a good chance at the Common Law Section as the law school admits a lot of new immigrants and mature students every year. Your cGPA is also very strong.
Relatively weak chances at Western and Queen's because the two law school are more difficult to get in compared with uOttawa law. In my view, you may have a better chance at Western law than Queen's as Western seems to place a great emphasis on cGPA these days. Good luck!
Cool! Glad to help, and congratulations on the job! When hiring teachers, of course, "how close to the start date" often (usually) means "how close to the start of classes," or something similar, and it's obviously a very bad thing to leave students with no teacher and the school scrambling to find someone. So they get cranky when that happens. I can only suppose that there are analogous circumstances in law and every other field.
Ended up just asking for 30 minutes to consider the offer - all of the employers were happy and didn't mind.
However, this was still a useful message as I am also within the sphere of Education (BEd 2018 from Laurentian University).
I might go back to teaching (or maybe lecturing at universities) at some point in my career
Thanks a lot!
I received an offer back for uOttawa's PDC program last month. It seems to me i have to make a decision about the offer on uOzone in addition to OLSAS. If i were to provisionally accept, does anyone know if there's a "provisionally accept" option on uOzone as well? Any insight would be appreciated!
