I'm hearing Windsor a lot in this thread as a second "or last" option for law school. I'm not too familiar with their program, but is it that bad? Have their graduates done well?

Windsor is by no means a terrible law school.  Their graduates do as well as most graduates of Ontario schools, which is to say quite decently.  The big thing about Windsor are that its admission standards are totally different: experience, volunteer work, letters of recommendation, a strong personal statement is worth as much as the LSAT and the GPA.  This means that people that wouldn't have a chance at other schools can get into Windsor, while some shoe-ins at other places could not get into Windsor because of their subpar life experience.
