  1. Just to share, I called around to all the local banks to ask about their professional student lines of credit for the JD program at Osgoode. Their maximum ranges from 100,000-135,000 and the interest rates are as follows: BMO: prime + 1% CIBC: prime + 1% Scotiabank: prime + 0.5% TD: prime RBC: prime Prime is currently 3.7%

    Once we’ve accepted the offer on OLSAS and paid the deposit, is there anything else we need to do?

    What are your extra curriculars like and how good do you think your references will be?

    Got accepted yesterday! 3.1/3.5/164/MA Outstanding ECs and incredible references.
  6. Does anyone experience this?

    All of this advice is incredible. Something else I found to be helpful was splashing my face with cold water before the test and during the break. It woke me up, allowed me to be alert, and gave me a sort of “let’s rally” pump up that allowed me to be focus, determined and refreshed. Also self talk is very helpful. Arguably the best thing I did to bring up my score. Telling myself that I have this and constantly reassuring myself that I know what to expect and that I can rock this test helped a lot. When I found myself stressing over the timing factor, I timed myself instead of for 35 mins, just allowing the timer to go. When I noticed that I could comfortably finish a section in 40-45 mins, it allowed me to realize that I just needed to make small changes to feel comfortable at 35 mins. When I started to consistently implement section management techniques (LR: predicting - picking and quitting, making a strategic decision to get out of a hard question early, identifying hard questions and leaving them for last, RC: triaging passages and question types, LG: taking more time in my set up to save time in the question set, etc) I found myself cutting out so much unnecessary time and I was able to comfortably finish a section by 32 mins and I found that when I felt like I had control over the test, it made a huge difference and I didn’t have timing anxiety anymore. Feel free to PM me for more details if you’d like!
  7. I’ve written at both. Queen’s Collegiate is FAR better. At Dewey the people were super nice, but it was super noisy and distracting. I could hear one of the administration lady’s yelling on the phone for about 20 minutes during reading comprehension. Queen’s Collegiate was a lot quieter, more professional and significantly more conducive to performing better.
  8. Recommended readings to prep for law school?

    1L of a Ride is amazing to help you prepare for law school.
