  1. To be fair, they also say that that number is lower than it has been in the past, so it seems that fewer students are choosing Osgoode over UofT than before.
  2. Oh so it's not just a "Welcome to UofT Law" group? That's cool!
  3. What's the point of that FB group anyways?
  4. Just wanted a second opinion. I don't want to pick UofT solely because I've wanted it for a long time. And it doesn't hurt to ask does it?
  5. Hi everyone, I recently got accepted to Osgoode and Toronto but I would like to know a little more about the differences between the two schools. UofT has been my top choice for a very long time, but I've read other threads that compare the two schools and the difference (according to some) is not that significant. On the other hand, more UofT students attain jobs with bigger law firms, even though the school has a smaller class size. I'm not sure which type of law I'm most interested in yet, but I'm mainly looking for the school that will provide me with the best employment prospects - especially in larger firms. Also, the cost of tuition is fortunately not very important; I'm mainly interested in the advantages and disadvantages of attending the two law schools. Thank you!
  6. Is this from any school's website?
  7. Does anyone know how long it runs for?
  8. I got accepted as well! LSAT: 168 GPA: 3.84
  9. The page also says that offers of admission are made through mail only. Does that mean that we won't know if we're accepted until we get the letter? Does the offer show up on OASIS?
  10. Just heard the voicemail. GPA: 3.84 (currently in fourth year so it's also my B3) LSAT: 168 Strong PS
  11. Congratulations to both of you! I'm hoping to get the same call.
  12. Osgoode and UofT are my top two choices and I'm not even sure whether I should apply to a third. How are my chances at Osgoode?
  13. Hi everyone! cGPA: 3.84 LSAT: 168 Top choices: UofT, Osgoode, Western Good enough?
  14. cGPA - 3.84 B2 (Don't have 4th year yet) - 3.91 LSAT - 160 UofT, Osgoode, Queens, Western
  15. I want to sign up for the October test but I wanted to hear some opinions on the Toronto test centers first. The ones closest to me are UofT and Queens Collegiate but I'm open to others as well. Any feedback would be appreciated!
  16. So if an applicant were to write the LSAT in September/October instead of June, they don't put themselves at a disadvantage during the admissions process? In other words, sending your application in October instead of July won't have any influence on the rolling admissions process?
  17. I'm in UofT for Psych/PolSci and I don't need any 400-level courses.
  18. Do they even have a chance to look at the 4th year if you apply at the end of the 3rd? Or do they consider B3 only for those that apply after they finish undergrad, since those that apply during their undergrad have only completed 3 years.
  19. What I meant by "Are students graded based on how they compare to other students" is that I've heard previous students claiming that professors would reduce a student's final mark so it would fit in with the rest of the class. For example, a student's mathematical final mark would be 88%, but the class average would be 66% so the student would be bumped down a few percent to "fit in". May be complete BS but I was simply wondering. As for your example of marking an essay, I completely agree; I would even argue that the same can be said for high school. Of course I'm not fixated on U of T. I just picked U of T to avoid getting answers such as "It depends which law school you go to". As long as I join the profession I'm striving for, I do not think the path to it matters too much. U of T was just an example I used, sorry for the confusion.
  20. Hello everyone, I just finished high school and got accepted to UofT for Studies in Psychology. My plan is to later get into the Faculty of Law in University of Toronto but I have a few questions. First, I have heard that the grading system in UofT is very strenuous; can someone explain exactly how professors mark (bell curve, etc.). I finished high school with an average of approx. 90% but I want to be know what to expect the next few years. In addition, are students in UofT graded based on how they compare to others or is everyone given a mark based on his or her own achievements? Lastly, I would like (need?) a few points of advice on how to prepare for Undergraduate studies and possibly law school. I constantly read in order to enhance my reading comprehension and speed but I would like to know which skills I may need to acquire in order to succeed in University and eventually law school. I understand that this is not usually the place for high school students to inquire about Law school but I figured anecdotal advice would be beneficial. Thank you! PS: Should I stop thinking about law school until I actually near it?
