  1. I really recommend Wesbrook village just because of the saveon. The time you'll save on grocery shopping will be invaluable.
  2. There are LSAT, law school admissions and law school subreddits but they're pretty much all US-centric. The utility of the forum is the ability to categorize posts in a way you can't do on reddit.
  3. Not an issue at all. Some people even graduate from their previous program during the 1st semester of 1L.
  4. I mean yeah there's the obvious stuff like misstating the rule or citing the wrong case but that should never happen.
  5. Your responses to fact patterns and policy questions are subjective in the sense that there are no right or wrong answers. Where you fall on the curve depends on how well you make the case for both sides and your analysis of which side is stronger.
  6. Tbf someone who's too lazy to google isn't really anyone's competition.
  7. It's been a while since I've been in touch but Scotia's Osgoode rep is listed on this chart: https://www.scotiabank.com/content/dam/scotiabank/canada/en/documents/Scotiabank_SPSP_representative_English.pdf
  8. It's 135. And you can get it retroactively changed, yes.
  9. Osgoode runs autonomously from York. It's not really part of York.
  10. Unless the offer letters/emails stated conditions then they're not conditional. AFAIK the vast majority of offers are unconditional.
  11. Wesbrook village is really the ideal place to live on campus. You're right next to a grocery store and have the option of going on relaxing scenic walks every evening.
  12. It can be tough being conservative in today's climate. Given the militancy of the Left, you're best keeping your views to yourself and never discussing any social issues which come up in class. You'll eventually find a group of like minded conservatives who you feel free expressing yourself around.
  13. You've identified what your mistakes were and you understand why you made them and what you should have done. What you need to do is imbibe that understanding and apply it going forward. Keep hitting the practice tests.
  14. You've already applied so posting a chances thread is pretty moot at this point. That said, you're probably in but mid - later in the cycle.
  15. The best law schools for Bay Street are Osgoode and U of T. Be careful when discussing rankings on this forum. It's like walking on egg shells.
  16. My point was that they're being open about the workload and so you can't have any complaints if you end up working for them because you would know what you signed up for.
  17. This is a direct quote from the work-life balance section of their careers page: Being a lawyer is not a 9-to-5 job. We’re in the service business, and the cycle of client activity has peaks and valleys that we all learn to manage. Being responsive to client demands is our highest priority, which means long hours and personal sacrifices are sometimes inevitable. I think this quote speaks for itself. That said, the same would be true for biglaw more broadly. You're being very well remunerated and that should help compensate for your diminished social life.
  18. Early decision isn't legally binding so the school can't sue you for damages. The worst they can do is tell any other US schools you applied to that you breached an agreement, which would probably lead to blanket rejections from any other US schools you've applied to. They don't have access to your Canadian schools (I'm assuming you did apply to some Canadian schools) so you're fine on that front.
  19. I agree with the above poster. I also think your Osgoode chances would be decent if you get a mid-160s.
  20. I agree in substance with the point being made, I just thought it could have been toned down a bit.
  21. I get your point but it comes off as piling on OP for not being broke.
  22. Athletics would be relevant but I'm not so sure about the backpacking trip. Schools aren't interested in your previous holiday destinations. That might be something to talk about in the personal statement though.
