    Isn't there also that satellite New York firm in Toronto that pays on the New York scale? which would make the claim patently false
  3. Deciding not to article?

    True point.

    You didn’t make the wrong choice by selecting Osgoode. I absolutely loved my time there and I think you will too. The beauty about going to a larger school is that you’re bound to find a group of people you click with - even if they aren’t in your section. I found 95% of the people there to be very collegial. No one is going to be ripping pages out of books or trying to sabotage you. I won’t sugar coat it - 1L is stressful. Being graded on a curve against other highly capable students is stressful. Learning a new subject area is stressful. The pressure to get a “summer job” will be stressful. These things are not exclusive to osgoode and the stress won’t be exclusive to you. Everyone will be going through it at the same time and you’ll find people you can lean on. The upper years will be a particularly valuable resource for helping you manage your stress. There is no point in fretting about September (August in your case). It’s will be a bit stressful but certainly nothing you can’t handle.

    This could stretch through first week of Sept.

    My goal is to be $60K in debt. I'm halfway there after a year. Lol. You're fine.

    Maybe I'm having a mini stroke but what do you mean by this?

    Also, If you utilize government loans, the interest you pay every year in payments is a tax deductible. Getting some money back from you taxes is a bonus.

    I think we probably would have heard of it if it already happened! I imagine that will happen and then a few days later the rank will be released. However, I am just speculating. The wait is dreadful.
  13. Step 3, how does one go about that?

    Oh crap, that was the phone.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone.
  16. Waitlist 2018

    Hey guys, I think MissJE makes some great points. I hate to see you may/june/july people stressing, It seems to me that those of you in those categories are totally safe! If they went through 100 last year, even if they only go through 70 this year you guys are in! Those of us in July/August are a little more dicey, but you guys should all be fine! If you think about the fact that most people apply to say 4-5 schools, only 20% of the class will fill up on the original offers. So they could definitely go through 100 waitlist candidates. So much hope!
  17. Yesterday

    I hope it will be tomorrow. I saw the previous posts here that some people will off the waitlist firstly before it ranked. Does anyone receive the offer?
  19. Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

    Anytime between now and July 1st. I hope it does, just to know where i am at!
  20. Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

    Will the ranking come out tomorrow? Anxiety

    Definitely would say the vast majority of people at Osgoode were not cut-throat. Some were assholes, but they pretty much congregated only with each other after like the first week. Most people are amazing and ready to help each other. You’ll have a great time!
  22. Rejected 2018

    Rejected as well today. L3 3.42, LSAT 154, no sask connection. On waitlist at TRU so hoping that pans out.

    [strikethrough added to annoyingly to make it annoying, and to be annoying] Wait, you did indicate you welcome correction of your use of the English language, did you not? Or if you were being meta, kudos!
  24. It's not an employer's market right now. It's really difficult to find good people at the associate level. I have friends who are partners at firms who are struggling to fill openings.
