Joint programs

Hey Team,

Does anyone have any insight/ideas as to how admissions committees look at applicants to joint programs compared to general applicants?  For example, I am very interested in the joint LLB/MA from Ottawa U & Carleton (NPSIA), but it says they only accept 5 'exceptionally qualified' applicants each year.  Do admissions look at joint applicants separately from those applying to just a LLB program?  If I am denied for the joint, will I still be considered for the LLB-only stream?

Thanks in advance for any and all info.

Regards,

L.

This is an integrated program: I looked at it myself for a while.  This is def. harder to get into than.  More people apply to it than any other joined program the university offers (except for their national program but that's different), or at least that's what I've been told from a prof at Carleton a year ago.  I am NOT, however, sure if they'll still offer you an LLB if you apply for a dual.  Sorry.
