  1. Ask a 1L — 2018 Edition

    Random and insignificant question that nobody should rush to answer: I've received emails from Osgoode students in the past, and I've noticed that their display name always shows up as: Jane Doe 2018/Lawstudents/Osgoode (replacing Jane Doe and 2018 with their name and year they started). Are we stuck with this or can we change it to just our name? I've briefly fiddled around with the mail account and can't really tell. It seems kind of weird/unprofessional if we're stuck with it.
  2. Osgoode mail

    I'm in the same boat. I just sent a test email from my work account to my Osgoode address but for some reason it was routed to my gmail (with nothing showing up in my Osgoode account). When I replied it showed as coming from my gmail rather than my Osgoode account (obviously). I'm going to email Osgoode and I can let you guys know what they say. I haven't even tried linking these two accounts so I'm not sure why that happened. I actually prefer everything going to my gmail but I'm worried emails will get lost.

    They ask you to attach the form to the money order so you should contact them.
  4. Scotiabank PSLOC

    Hmm, I guess it was ambiguous wording on Scotia's part that gave me that impression. They said "as an Osgoode student, i can secure you $125k at prime" which to me sounds like the amount could vary by school. Good to know it doesn't though!
  5. Scotiabank PSLOC

    I also used the Osgoode rep listed on this chart. EDIT: @1122 I did get the impression that the terms (at least how much they offer) may vary by school. I was offered $125K at prime for Osgoode.
  6. I'd wait to start looking unless there's a specific building you're interested in and want to be put on a waitlist. A lot of landlords post only a month in advance, maybe two.
  7. OP, if you look in Midtown, you can for sure find something below the $2000 mark. A quick search on viewit.ca shows 107 listings for bachelors/ 1 bedrooms for $1600 or less: http://www.viewit.ca/vwListings.aspx?cs=1&city=Toronto+-+(T2). A lot of them are in older buildings and are missing amenities like A/C, en suite laundry, etc. Not sure if those are deal breakers for you or not. Again, there are even a few in the $1200 range, but with utilities you will most likely go over that. If you are strict on the $1200 ceiling, I would strongly consider the advice to stay on campus.
  8. Sadly, $1200 is not a realistic off-campus living budget in Toronto (for a studio/ 1 bedroom at least). I have seen some Midtown bachelors for around that price, but a) they look pretty tiny and b) the rental market is very competitive, so I don't think it's smart to bank on snagging something for that price. You should be prepared to spend upwards of $1400 for anything decent (which I know is obviously subjective).
  9. Scotiabank PSLOC

    I was quoted 125K at prime by a Scotia rep.
  10. Osgoode email account

    Mine isn't working either.
  11. Applicant information from Windsor leaked

    My friend who goes to Windsor received an email saying a breach of applicant data took place on the 9th. Doubtful that's referring to a different breach.
  12. Privacy Breach?

    I 100% agree. Especially considering this is a law school...
  13. Privacy Breach?

    The Dean may have only been told 2 days ago but the breach itself was on the 9th. According to the email the information was only up for 15 minutes so at least some staff knew on the 9th. So it took 7 days (4-5 work days depending when the breach happened/the Dean found out) for the Dean to be told and 9 for us.
  14. Privacy Breach?

    I did. My friend who's a current student received an email from staff saying a breach of law applicant data took place on the 9th...Which means it took them 9 days to tell us.
