  1. From my experience in business school and speaking to professors, the work experience (and being able to draw on that) is what makes the MBA valuable. If you don't have work experience, you aren't going to get nearly as much out of the MBA.
  2. Wait, so is it the marijuana and smartphone, or the avocado toast that means I will never be able to buy a house in Toronto?
  3. Depends on the firm, but at some, reception has very little to do with interviews, so telling reception you need to leave by a certain time won't do anything.
  4. They will likely offer you slots. Or might ask what you want. You need to be able to work with the fact that schedules (yours and the firms) are changing every second. It will all be fine. The perfect maximum amount for Monday depends on what you are able to schedule. If you can schedule 8, 10, 1, 3,5 or something similar, great. But what if you can do 8, 10:30, 1:30, and 3:30? In the second case, fitting in 5 may or may not work.
  5. FYI all - it's currently Bay Days, which can be a great time to pick up some relatively well-priced office attire. There's not a lot in the way of suits, but lots of dresses/blouses/jackets.
  6. Your PBSC experience is going to vary wildly depending on which project you get. Some are a lot more work/hours/experience.
  7. There were a few people in my year who took notes by hand, but not the majority.
  8. I think my materials in London arrived a day or two after the initial pickup date in Toronto. It really wasn't a material amount of time, and didn't impact my bar studying.
  9. I looked at Blossom Gate and ultimately chose elsewhere. Once I was actually living in London, I remember thinking that I was very glad I didn't live there. I didn't know any other law students living out that way, and it seemed very far from campus/other social activities.
  10. Welcome to Western. These emails will happen for the rest of your time there.
  11. Not strictly accurate. I'm not from Ontario, but attended an Ontario law school. I was asked some variation of "why Toronto" in a number of my OCI interviews. (Not all - probably about 1/3 to 1/2).
  12. The building has lockers. I believe they were free in 1L, and then something like $5 a year in upper years? It might even be a refundable deposit.
  13. Western has classes in sports law, and the Sport Solution clinic (where you are actually assisting athletes in disputes). Plus, they have Richard McLaren on staff, who is a prominent sports lawyer.
  14. Yes! Bay Days is also great. Also, if you're in Toronto (and maybe in other large cities? I just haven't tried), take advantage of the Bays personal shopper. You make an appointment, give them your size and price range, and style you are looking for. I found everything I needed in 2 hours, without having to sort through racks of clothes. It was amazing.
