  1. I've just had another look at that list and I really pity people taking out LOCs to study naturopathy.
  2. Agreed. Those are indeed excellent reasons not to run over children.
  3. It's nice to feel wanted though.
  4. That was most likely me last year haha. The document cited above is nine years out of date so I wouldn't rely on that if I were you. Here is the up to date version: https://www.scotiabank.com/ca/common/pdf/personal_banking/Scotiabank_SPSP_representative_English.pdf You're going to want to go to RBC first and get a prime offer because Scotiabank will start you off at prime + and will want to see an offer at prime from a competitor before matching. However, RBC only offers prime for its A list schools so if your school is a B - list school that might be an issue.
  5. Osgoode's relationship with York is like having a Rolls Royce engine in a 1996 Toyota Camry
  6. At Osgoode the clinical opportunities in our first semester don't look at grades since there are none to go off so it all comes down to your experience. For the 2L clinics, your first semester grades are a heavy component of the application process as well as your interview. I'm not familiar with Dal but I imagine the process there is not too dissimilar. Furthermore, nothing stops you from applying to volunteer at clinics in your city.
  7. My sense is that even if that's not entirely true it's a useful thing to believe because it'll force you to do your best in the interview.
  8. So two "solid B" students from the same school with very different experiences. How strong were your respective resumes?
  9. I don't know anyone who worked during 1L. You don't want to add a part - time job on top of work and extracurriculars. You should be applying for an LOC once you receive your law school offers and government loans in the summer before you start law school. Obviously, you'd want to exhaust your savings first before dipping into government loans and then your LOC. As long as you have good credit you won't need a cosigner for an LOC.
  10. It didn't have this year's? Maybe it takes some time for them to collate all that data. Regardless, generally if you have an A average at Osgoode you're in the top 10% and a B+ puts you in the top 30-35%.
  11. I'm holding my first semester transcript right now and it has the 2017-18 distributions. I'll be picking up the final transcript soon and I expect it to have this year's distributions.
  12. I believe Osgoode has that same distribution on the back of the transcripts.
  13. You're graded in comparison to your peers and inferences about your peers as a whole can be made based on the strength of the student body, which we glean from admissions statistics. On that basis, a B student at Queens is superior to a B student at Windsor and even more so than a B student in Windsor's dual program.
  14. Similar to how US firms really respect law journal, is there a particular extracurricular which Bay Street holds in especially high regard?
  15. I had 2 or 3 Ws and got in everywhere early. No one will bat an eye at a few Ws.
  16. I had my suspicions about why so many students with middling grades after our first semester flocked to the JD/MBA program.
  17. My guess is that it's Driedger on steroids.
  18. I mostly agree with you but 2L ECs are pretty much set in stone at this point. Clinic offers went out months ago and moot offers came out yesterday.
  19. Given the title of the course that is indeed a surprise.
  20. I had a checklist of all the issues we'd gone through throughout the semester which I checked off as I went through the exam. If at the end of the exam I hadn't checked off some issues on my list I would go back to the fact pattern just to be sure I hadn't missed any.
  21. Windsor is a school you go to when you either are really into social justice or have no other options.
  22. .You're not going to be making a lot of money so go to the cheaper school. (UBC)
