Canada - LLM Experiences


Sabsi1505

Hy,

I'm going to apply this year for the LLM at some Canadian Universities. I was thinking of Dalhousie, but couldn't find any experience reports in the Discussion Board. So it would be great if somebody could tell me how it is to study the Master there.

I was also thinking of Osgoode, UofT (Criminal Law one), Ottawa and Saskatchewan. If you have attended one of these Law schools I would be happy if you could share your experiences.

Furthermore, I saw that it is pretty though to get into UBC - you would need a B+. Is it like that or would you have chances to get in also with a not so high grade, because in fact UofT doesn't require such a high average?

Thanks a lot!

Well. I think B+ average is a minimum requirement for UBC and UofT. I mean the Admissions probably would look at your application, but will only consider it if your GPA is lower than B+ for causes, or there were not enough competitive candidate.

Just think it this way, B+ average is a minimum requirement, but to get in, A- only makes possible.

There are some very detailed profiles of the Canadian law schools on lawstudents.ca. Try browsing the forums on that site. As for the grades, remember that Canadian schools grade lower than US schools. Within Canada each school has a different median or curve so they will look at your grades with that in mind. At UBC you will need a thesis supervisor so it takes time to find the right person. I do know someone who was accepted at UBC with a lower average but she had stellar grades and work experience in her area of concentration.
