    Paying Tution with Visa

    may be this will be helpfull for the next semester, by my petro-points mastercard just came out with this new thing that every cheque you use gets you points! this means petro points on rent, osap payments and pretty much everything! furthermore, they can be converted to pc points or sears points - we are looking forward to our gratis (pretty much) trip to cuba for Xmas already.

    Paying for Tuition: Credit Card?

    Well, to collect PC points from tuition you would have to use a check to pay for your tuition (as they most likely do not accept credit cards); essentially, charge a different credit card. Then, do a balance transfer from that other card to you PC points Mastercard, et voila! Plus, the interest rate is 4.97 until you pay it off in full ( a lot less than OSAP).

    Sandy Hill, Center Town, The Market, Alta Visa

    check out the buildings at 2660 Norberry... It si more South (right down the street from Mooney's Bay), but it is only one bus if you walk up the street ot the 87 or 2, if you take the 140 at your doorstep. I imagine a 1 bdrm would go for $700 and you might be able to squeeze a month of free rent from them. opt for the taler building as utilities are included and it seems less gheto-ish....

    Paying for Tuition: Credit Card?

    all the credit cards i've got have cheques that you can use. i just paid a good chunk of my osap using one of those (pc points), despite the fact that you cannot pay osap with a credit card. however, in order to get the pc points, i will have to make a transfer to the pc points mastercard (from the other card that i used to pay osap) in order to receive the points, because they are not awarded on cheque use. totally worth it for me, as it did provide 2 free round trip tickets to edmonton! (well, helped, anyway)

    who's left?

    limz, i did apply at ottawa u, but was rejected last week or so. unfortunately, those seem as the only two feasible options (i didn't bother considering u of t), as my husband works in the tv industry, eliminating many other schools as viable possibilites. and the job is alright, but it is definitely not for me.....

    What is bad about doing part-time law school?

    Yeah, but what about in terms of being a new grad and applying for a job? Would firms, or other possible places of employment, not question the age? I just tend to be very pessimistic in evaluating a number of variables that would affect future possibilities... Then again, it just might be my 'old world' mentality - my cousins and friends in Europe have graduated and been working for a while, even tho they are younger than I am. Furthermore, like it has been said in previous posts - doing the part-time thing could be perceived negatively, add to that the fact that I would be older than the average new grad, and you have a potentialy massive disaster.
