  1. Ask a 1L — 2018 Edition

    The York gym equipment works just fine. It's not new equipment by any means, but it has everything you need. It does get quite busy especially in the afternoon. It tends to be less busy in the morning/ evening. Osgoode does have intramural teams(basketball, volleyball etc.). As for whether you have time to go to the gym, my advice would be for you to make time. You will always feel like you should be studying more and that you are surrounded by people with an absurdly impressive work ethic. Everyone feels that way and you need to continue to exercise/ eat properly so that you can avoid the inevitable burnout. In the long run it is more important that you take care of yourself, and the gym is an excellent way to do that.
  2. suggestions on where to live?

    Hi Bulldog2018. My suggestion would be for you to live at either Passy or the Quad if you want to be close to campus. That being said, there's not very much to do around York (and by that I mean absolutely nothing), and groceries are not easy if you don't have a car. Now that there is a subway, a lot of people have opted to live near St. Clair West or the Annex, which is a much better part of the city, and where there are plenty of grocery stores, shops, cafes, bars etc. As for safety, the York campus is actually pretty safe (never had any issues).
  3. In at UVic, Osgoode, Queen’s, and Ottawa. Now what?

    Ya of course shoot me a message!
  4. In at UVic, Osgoode, Queen’s, and Ottawa. Now what?

    Hi Cameilla, I had a very similar decision to make last year and I chose Osgoode. I can tell you that Osgoode's public interest opportunities are truly wonderful. I've been a part of CLASP (Community and Legal Aid Services Program), and there are many other incredible options to choose from if you want to get hands on experiences and get involved in the community. I have a learning disability, and the support I've received from Osgoode in terms of accommodation has been fantastic. There are also generous bursaries based on financial need and disability related criteria, and additional funds available from OSAP.
  5. Accepted to Osgoode 2017

    I went into queue Jan. 31st, which feels like a lifetime ago. Good luck!
  6. Accepted to Osgoode 2017

    Yes I did fill out part B. And I have until May 25th to respond. Good luck!
  7. Accepted to Osgoode 2017

    Accepted today by email. Gpa 3.54, last 2 3.8 aprox (including this semester), lsat 159. Was fully set on Queen's until now!
  8. In Queue 2017

    I'm in exactly the same boat as you. I provisionally accepted Queen's (over Western) and kept my application open for Osgoode. I too was put in queue on Jan. 31st, and haven't heard anything else since. As long as you provisionally accept (not firm accept), your application will remain open for Osgoode and whatever other schools you choose to keep open, and you don't have to pay a deposit for Queen's until June 1st, so you have lots of time to hear back from other schools.
  9. Chances CGPA 3.43 L2 3.76 LSAT 159?

    I was very involved in one particular group (both on the exec and as a performer) (20 hours a week commitment). I also held other Exec positions, but none of them had the same level of commitment.
  10. Chances CGPA 3.43 L2 3.76 LSAT 159?

    Manitoba acceptance was in early December, Western was in January, Queen's was in February and Uvic was last week.
  11. Accepted to UVic 2017

    Thank you! I applied in February I believe but they hadn't received everything until a few weeks ago. My application changed from 'Forwarded to Review' to "To Committee for Review" or something along those lines. I received my acceptance a week after that. Good luck!
  12. Accepted to UVic 2017

    Accepted on Friday (discretionary category) 3.52 CGPA, 3.72 Last 2, 159 LSAT. I declined my offer this afternoon so good luck to those still waiting!
  13. Queen's vs Uvic

    I'm not set on any legal market, however for family reasons I am more likely to end up in Toronto than BC. I know that Queen's is therefore the better option in the long run. I'm just trying to get a sense of the strengths of each program before I make my final decision.
  14. Queen's vs Uvic

    I provisionally accepted Queen's this week, but got into Uvic yesterday. I've heard great things about both schools, but am currently leaning toward Queen's. For the record, I am interested in Criminal Law and international law, but I also understand that could change when I go to Law school and I could end up going into something completely different. I will likely choose Queen's because of its proximity to the legal Markets in Ontario and Quebec as well as my family, but at the same time the cheaper tuition and beautiful location of UVic are big pluses (these pluses would likely only be temporary). If anyone would like to weigh in on either Queen's or Uvic, and point out variables that I have overlooked, that would be terrific!
  15. Chances CGPA 3.43 L2 3.76 LSAT 159?

    I got into Queen's, Western and Manitoba with similar stats. My Last 2 and LSAT are identical to yours, and my CGPA is a little higher (3.52 OLSAS GPA). If you feel that your personal statement/ extracurriculars/ references were good, then don't give up hope!
