  1. Line of Credit Advice

    I will be attending U of T in the fall but am still living on the east coast. Am I able to apply for the Scotia Bank line of credit here, or do I have to do it in Toronto? And how do I go about applying?
  2. Family Housing

    Anybody with any knowledge of or experience with U of T's student family housing? I have information about how it works but not much about the actual quality of the apartments themselves and what it's like to live there. If I attend I will be moving from the east coast with my wife and 2 year old son, so it would be nice to have something affordable that is close to school, but would rather it not be at the expense of my family's comfort. Any info would be appreciated.
  3. I applied all over....applied to U of T not expecting to get in but did, so now deciding between UofT, Osgoode, and Dal...difference in tuition between Dal and UofT is 20 grand lol
  4. Choices but strongly considering UofT

    I meant more so keeping my options open as in after three years of law school I will surely know much more about what opportunities are out their to work in social justice type roles than I do now. What I mean is that I have worked for several years with indigenous communities in the education system and also as a substance abuse counselor, and now want to use a legal education to advocate for indigenous right on a higher level where more systemic changes can be made, and my concern is that perhaps more opportunities to do that will arise in Ontario. That is of course speculation by someone who has never gone to law school, so I could be completely wrong, but that's where my thinking is at right now.

    For those of you saying to minimize debt, would you advise going to Dal, or that Osgoode would be a good balance of a little lower tuition but more opportunity than on the east coast?
  6. Calling all Aboriginal Applicants/Students

    Hey everyone! I've been accepted to Toronto and Osgoode. I'm wondering if, in general, there are any reasons to attend Osgoode over Toronto. While I'm keeping my options open for what I want to do after, it will most likely be something to do with social justice/indigenous rights, i.e. hopefully contributing to the rebuilding of our indigenous nations. I'm Maliseet from the the east coast and am feeling that if I'm going to make the move to Toronto, I might as well pay the extra tuition to attend what's traditionally known as the top school in Canada. I've also been accepted to Dal, but like I said I am keeping my options open career-wise, and feel like those options would be more plentiful in Toronto. I'm a mature student (30) with a Mi'kmaq wife and a two-year-old son, but my wife is self-employed, can work from anywhere, and is all in favor of a bigger city vibe. Any thoughts from fellow Indigenous law students, past or present, would be very much appreciated!
  7. Choices but strongly considering UofT

    Thank you! My parents don't make much money, I haven't been working (finishing undergrad) for the past two years, and my wife just recently started working again (was off with the baby), so I am slightly hopeful for what I might be able to get out of U of T. The vibe I am mostly getting though is to see what I can get from these schools financially and then go from there.

  10. Calling all Aboriginal Applicants/Students

    Graduating in December, wrote LSAT in September and just finished applying to 7 different schools over the weekend all in the indigenous category. How're everyone else's apps coming along???
