Still no email from Ottawa with my UOzone information!

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I applied to Ottawa and Queens through OLSAS a few months ago, but i have just written the LSAT for the first time in January. I received an email from Ontario immediately after i submitted my application on OLSAS with my log in information for their portal. However, I still haven't received an email from Ottawa with my login information to get on uozone, even though OLSAS says it was submitted successfully. I have tried to email and call them multiple times, but I keep getting an automated message. 

Does anyone have any recommendations on what I should do next? Would really appreciate it.

I am in the same boat except that I applied to the French common law program. It's been three weeks and I haven't received a confirmation or UOZone info. Emailed comlaw yesterday, no answer yet but it hasn't been that long. Hope they get back to you soon!

I was on the same boat last month and I quickly realized that their previous emails went in my junk folder (which auto deletes every week or so). I gave the IT people a phone call and they gave me a new password to quickly login.

Hope this helps :)

That's good to know! Mine only auto deletes every 30 days, so if there was an email I would've seen it. :(

Update: they just got back to me and I finally received UOZone access! Hope they replied to OP as well. 

That's amazing! I'm glad it worked out for you, must've been stressful.

    • I was accepted by Western this cycle with with a 3.08 cGPA and a 3.65 L2 (and a 167 LSAT). Mind you, I also have 2 masters degrees and got an A- average in both (both were course-based). I think cGPA does matter, but they account for how long ago your undergrad was and what you've done since then, and whether you've proved that you could probably do better if you were given another chance (and ergo succeed in law school). 
    • Hi, are there any LLM applicants for the year 2021/2022 who received an admission e mail from Dalhousie? My application was completed on 31st March 2021 and waiting for a reply from the University. Just wondering whether any one of you guys have an update.    Thank you!!!
    • There are a lot of municipalities in Canada. City of Toronto hires a few articling students (most of their lawyers are former articling students and they rarely hire from outside though), along with Region of Peel, York Region, and some others I've seen. For federal government, there is only really the DOJ Legal Excellence Program. The municipalities also hire junior lawyers and I've seen quite a few postings in York Region and the surrounding areas. The process is a lot faster than the federal government which can take over a year from the time you apply. The federal government rarely hires junior lawyers outside of its articling students and federal court clerks. And you often see mid-level lawyers applying for LP-01 positions with the federal government and going through a written exam and interview processes just to end up in a waiting pool. I know people who applied in 2019 for the most recent DOJ LP-01 recruitment process and were put into a waiting pool which is scheduled to expire soon, after which point you have to apply all over again. So getting your foot in the door is a lot harder than it is for municipal and provincial. Certainly, getting into provincial is easier than municipal as there are a lot more legal positions available as well. 
    • Hey I'm a bit late here but I can give you my personal experience. It is quit the contrary of what your expectations seem to be. I did 3 years CEGEP and a 4 year Undergrad (just because I took my time). I spent some time managing a restaurant, then started a law certificate in the evening, then law school. I thought I would be disadvantaged because my background was so far away form the classic path to Biglaw. I will be 28 when graduating. I just did my Course aux stages and got 4 offers, while having a 3.65 GPA. First, they don't care about your age. If you have done anything productive in the past 10 years, it will be a great advantage to you in the interviews, because you might have more to say than anyone else. Find a way to highlight your maturity/leadership or whatever it is you have developed while others were in high school. I had a lot of misconceptions about a supposed prejudice towards older candidates, but I can assure you they don't really care. Get involved in whatever gets you going and be passionate about something. Good luck!
