  1. 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).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. The students from Western will be in suits, dresses with blazers, or some kind of dress pants/blazer combo, if that helps! Dress pants, heels, and a blouse would be fine though. If you're really worried, add a blazer. Also I don't ever recall guests (or not many) at the reception.
  6. I found my place in June, and there was still lots of selection in London. Don't stress about it.
  7. Some mingling, some remarks from alumni, some remarks from the Dean, and then more mingling with accepted students, current students, law school staff, and alumni who work at Torys. Also open bar & snacks.
  8. Anonymous until the editors look at the metadata to find out who wrote the paper... 🤔
  9. The Upper Year Summary box hasn't been updated since I was in 1L or before (and I have graduated). Not overly useful - you're better off just asking around!
  10. The case brief for OTLATLS is also pass-fail. (Like all OTLATLS assignments unless they have changed things. Please do not stress about any of them, because in practice they are Pass/Fail/Repeat. If you fail? Just re-do the thing until you pass.) I think the course times/dates move around in the winter semester. They did when I was in 1L.
  11. The arts/theatre scene is exceptional for a city of Winnipeg's size - for example, the Manitoba Theatre Centre put on Come From Away, with the current Toronto cast, before the show re-opened in Toronto. Tickets were 3/4 to 1/2 the price of Toronto, and the theatre in Winnipeg is more intimate.
  12. Is there not a second add/drop in September? This is the only one that ever saw much movement, as far as I can remember. Most people haven't thought too deeply about it at this point, or haven't made up their minds, so didn't drop extra classes yet. It will happen once they are forced to. Don't worry about it. And bid more points next time. I only ever had to deal with WL for Jan term classes, and things I decided to try and switch into during Add/Drop, not for things that I bid on.
  13. Sorry, not 100% sure anymore. They seem to change the 1L January term dates/assignments a little every year so I can't be sure. But like I said, I went away for Reading Week in 1L, 2L, and 3L and don't think it had a negative impact on me/my schoolwork.
  14. I travelled every year. Your Jan term paper (in upper years) might be due around that time, but you have plenty of time before to work on it.
  15. I always received my information after school started in September.
