I'm a bit of a worrier. Was really happy with my LSAT, but wondering if it's good enough to get into Osgoode, and to possibly be offered bursary money because of financial need? Or, is that reserved for people with 170's? Really excited, but also very nervous, not sure if seats there fill up more quickly. Any advice would help.

Bursaries tend to be awarded on the basis of financial need. Other types of merit (e.g., community involvement, leadership, or strong academic record) are usually necessary things to get scholarship money. 

 

You'll get into Osgoode with those stats. And since I have a friend who got offered scholarship money at Oz last cycle with a lower LSAT and similar GPA, I wouldn't be surprised if you got some scholarship money too.

I agree with Ptolemy, I also know people who were awarded scholarships with similar stats to you. Most of their scholarships are based on financial need :)

Thanks guys, that makes me feel a whole lot better. Law school is expensive, and right now I don't think I can afford it without help.

None. Better apply to Cooley.

 

Just kidding you're fine.
