  1. Why isn't my OSAP showing up on my "Account Summary"

    The OSAP $$ won't appear on your portal until enrollment is confirmed at the beginning of September. The financial aid/cashiers office can see that you are receiving OSAP, and won't charge interest since the payments were technically due yesterday. You just have to pay the difference, and then the amount that OSAP will cover will be outstanding until ~first week of September.
  2. Ryerson Admissions

    The population is concentrated down south though. Also, Toronto is considered Southern Ontario.
  3. Interests Section

    I deleted my interests section over a year ago to keep my resume to 2 pages. I'm happy I saw this thread. I honestly assumed that interests would be the first section to cut, and that it wouldn't matter at all. Very surprised to hear that travelling is considered a legitimate interest for a resume..
  4. Tuition & Timetable

    I am in the same boat. I am not registered on myuwindsor, and my financial summary still shows -500. I think they just aren't finished registering all the students in the system. (Last name S)
  5. Tuition

    I'm not registered but I can see how much I owe by logging into myuwindsor -> financial matters -> account summary -> fall 2018. Im currently seeing $9,753 for tuition ($9,253 after the deposit is deducted)
  6. Ottawa Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

    ????? your comment doesn't live delete itself- I had no way of knowing you had deleted it until after I had already posted. I don't want to keep posting off topic. Your comments are wild and you should consider presenting yourself in a more mature way. Name calling just makes you look worse.
  7. Ottawa Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

    I think all your comments should be quoted so you can't delete them. I am a dumbass? I don't think many people are thinking that after reading your comments. Being on the waitlist twice doesn't give you some great insight into this years admissions process. and if it does, why aren't you actually posting productive, helpful comments? Either way, it's crazy to be throwing around comments like dumbass, biggest tool etc on this forum. You have to know that those comments just make you seem immature and dramatic.
  8. Ottawa Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

    you were on the waitlist twice yet you're calling out CrimNation for applying for another round? What. Your comments aren't helpful, they just make you sound like a total jerk. Why are you even on this thread if you didn't apply this year? ...
  9. Question re. OSAP and program name

    a JD is an undergraduate/bachelors degree.
  10. I don't think that's a true statement at all. It's easier to get accepted to a law school in the US- just not the law schools that those 172+ students are applying to. Yes, it is more cutthroat to apply to Harvard than most Canadian law schools but there is a higher chance, and more options, if applying in the US. There are schools in the US that list 140+ as a high LSAT score. That being said, I really enjoyed the LSAT subreddit when I wrote. I even did PS exchange on reddit a few times during the application process. It really helped me not (completely) overload the people in my life by constantly talking about the LSAT/application process.
  11. queens still pending?

    Did you apply for first year JD? I am confused how you would have been able to apply past the November 1st deadline. Are you a transfer student?
  12. Letter of Recommendation Advice

    1. Early. I asked my referees during the summer (end of July '17), and then followed up when OLSAS opened in late August. Asked them to have the references completed mid October to be sure I made the November 1 deadline. I am sure asking at the end of August would have had the same result, but it gave me peace of mind to ask earlier. 2. Their experience with you. If they're a professor, they should write about your work ethic in school. If they're a work or volunteer supervisor, they should write about how you performed at work/volunteering. It's really their prerogative to decide what they write, but I found it beneficial l to send my referees information to help form the reference. (Transcript, resume, personal statements, essays or work I completed for them) 3. Professors. The ones who taught the classes that you did the best in, or have supervised you in some capacity, or you have a good relationship with. Ones that you know will write a good reference for you. If you have valuable work experience, a supervisors reference could be very beneficial as well.
  13. Scotiabank Prime 3.7%?

    I'm not sure if there's a certain score! I think it depends on multiple factors in your application. (reasons for your credit scoring being what it is, etc). Having no credit history is much better than having bad credit history. Try your best to push for prime +0.
  14. Scotiabank Prime 3.7%?

    Rates go up for everyone, sadly. Prime rate isn't secured when you sign the LOC, so the rate changes alongside the Bank of Canada's interest rate. Still much better than in the states, and OSAP (>6%). Edit: Try hard to get prime +0. All I had to do was ask directly (but of course this is dependent on financial situation, credit score etc)
  15. Reference letters and reapplying question.

    I am unsure! Honestly, I doubt the admissions committee would be able to remember all reference letters, so I think a resend would be fine. But, if there is anything to add, it may be better for them to write another. (if you did another class with them, etc) Try to chose references that have the most substantial things to comment on. Good luck!
