If you go to MyOsgoode and click "schedules and timetables", they have them posted for fall 2018 and winter 2019. Hopefully we find out which section we're in soon!

What's faculty council and legal and lit? Do we have to attend those? I know L&L is the student government but why is it on the timetable?

It’s on the schedule so that no classes are scheduled then, in order to leave the time open for their meetings.  You only attend if you’re part of it.  If you’re not part of it, that time is free for lunch, etc.

Anyone know what the state and citizen at night is for? Gotta apply if you just would rather take it at night for 3 hours as opposed to throughout the week?

 

Also I just got an email from housing re: chambers. I put 1 bedroom as my first choice but they said they could only offer me the bachelor (not the 'studio' large bachelor)

I'm still waiting to hear back and I also had the 1 bedroom as my first choice. Did they explain why they couldn't offer you a 1 bedroom?

No! This was the email:

Hello,

Thank you for your application to the York Apartments. Unfortunately, we could not accommodate your 1st choice of a 1-bedroom apartment at Osgoode Chambers.  We can offer you a furnished bachelor apartment at Osgoode Chambers.  The rental rate is $ 972 per month.  Move-ins are now arranged for the 1st and 15th of each month throughout the year.  Please confirm if this alternative option is suitable by Friday, July 6th .

I'm somewhat concerned since I haven't even heard back yet. Are you going to take the bachelor?

I'd go ahead and shoot them email by tmw if you haven't heard. Did you firm accept osgoode and apply for chambers by June 15th though? 

Yeah I'm gonna take it. Will probably look elsewhere for 2nd and 3rd year though.

Yes I did everything before the deadline. I'll probably call tomorrow just to see what's going on with my housing application.

Heard this was an alternative time slot for those who had commitments they couldn’t miss during the day

I got the same email. What concerns me is that it mentions "move-in are arranged for 1st and 15th". I don't recall they have said anything on the webpage. I am somehow under the impression that you can move in as long as you have checked in. I wonder whether this means that if I arrive on the 16th, I have to wait until the 1st of the next month (which sounds totally unreasonable but that's indeed my first impression when reading this). Or it can mean that I can nevertheless move in on the 16th but I will be charged starting from the 15th. I have emailed back to ask about it. (Perhaps it's just me being dumb? )

I understood it as you could only move in on the 1st or the 15th. No idea though. Definitely ask.

It’s also for clubs. Basically, all the clubs mainly do their scheduled activities (like speakers or panels) during the L&L and Student Caucus time slots.

Someone in the facebook group had the same issue. There's been a suggestion posted in that thread.

I'm having the same problem. If I'm logged into my account, all I see is upper year/first year. If I sign out, I'm able to see all the upper year/first year schedules. It's really strange!

Just an update- I e-mailed Osgoode's IT and they fixed it for me! If you're still having issues with it, e-mail them :)

We're officially in July. The slow and agonizing countdown to registration will soon be over. Just three more weeks now. Happy Canada day everyone.

    • Exactly. I keep having to remind myself that the index score is moderately reliable at best, and highly speculative at worst.  Does u of a wait till they receive fall grades before extending an offer? Because if that’s the case then I don’t think I’ll receive one (if I do) until January at the earliest.  Stqust, As for your GPA, that’s awesome! I think you’ll be alright based on the applicant profile 
    • I sympathize with you, this situation sucks and is becoming increasingly common as we have more graduates from more schools. If I were in your position I would look at the current year as being paid in experience but looking for something else for next year. I mean, you are probably better off than if you had to do the LPP. On the other hand, I wouldn't personally want to stay with a firm that under-paid me during articling just because they could.  It sounds like you really shot yourself in the foot by being over-eager to find any job and they are taking advantage of you a bit. Why didn't you discuss salary before a firm commitment? But I would want to know a lot more before giving any substantial advice, like what were your credentials like? Were you a top student with good extra-curricular's? What are your finances like? 
    • I went to Osgoode and worked in the admissions department, so I'll give you my thoughts. Based on numbers alone, you have no chance. The people who get into Osgoode with numbers in your range are anomalies and should not be taken as examples (probably less than 10 students out of a class of 290, and most of them were mature students with significant work experience). I say throw in an application to Osgoode but do not hedge your bets on it. Invest your time and energy at other schools like Windsor, that do have a truly holistic process and care more about your personal circumstances and extracurriculars. Osgoode receives 2500+ applications for 290 spots, and there will be people applying with better stats than yours who have similar experiences. I scanned your experiences and it's rather common among the Osgoode student body; this is not to take away from it but to say that it may not be as unique as you think. There were students in my class who came from poverty, who are immigrants, who are racialized minorities, who are LGBTQ, who had family and personal tragedies, who can speak multiple languages (very diverse class), who had significant work and volunteer experiences, etc. Osgoode is one of the most diverse law schools in Canada (along with Windsor and Ottawa). I would also be careful about trying to get an acceptance through a "pity parade" of sorts. Ultimately, Osgoode does want to accept a class of very accomplished individuals, who would benefit the legal profession and bring respect and recognition to the school. Don't be misled by students getting in with lower stats - most of them were mature applicants with 5+ years of work experience under their belt. The average cGPA was a 3.67 and average LSAT score a 162 for the last couple of rounds. To put it into perspective, I had a 160+ LSAT score and 3.7+ GPA and fell into at least four of the "categories" you had listed under your experiences. Good luck and I think you have a shot at other law schools, but not really Osgoode unless you get extremely lucky.  Edit: Reference letters don't make or break an application (unless it's extremely negative). Profreader mentioned this in another thread, but you can't know how strong a reference letter is if you have not read them. Now if you have read them, then it's also subjective based on the person reading the letter. Most law school applicants have good/strong letters in general.
