  1. 1. I have no evidence for this but I suspect that Osgoode just feels it has to keep up with U of T in terms of tuition. That said, we have more clinics than any other law school and the funding for them has to come from somewhere. 5. Networking is key for those, especially as they don't do interviews.
  2. https://www.dentons.com/en/whats-different-about-dentons/connecting-you-to-talented-lawyers-around-the-globe/news/2019/february/dentons-announces-first-year-students-joining-the-toronto-office-in-summer-2019
  3. Six weeks is about how long we had to wait for our first semester grades so I can live with that.
  4. I second the above, call the school to confirm. The point you raised in your side note is an interesting fact pattern though. My sense is that if the OLSAS offer is accidental, an innocent or negligent misrepresentation in effect, Windsor wouldn't be forced to accept you, i.e.specific performance would not be on the cards.
  5. The premise of this thread troubles me because it feeds into the inaccurate notion that minorities advance based on affirmative action policies (quasi or otherwise) rather than on merit.
  6. I'm curious how long we'll have to wait once exams are done.
  7. Osgoode has several of each in 1L. @chaboywb I've responded via PM
  8. One point that doesn't get emphasized enough on this forum is the importance of extracurriculars in 1L, and not just any extracurriculars but those that give you transferable skills. That puts clinics at the top of the list followed by moots. A while ago I spent a few hours looking at the profiles of incoming summer students and almost all of them had at least a clinic. The best had the clinic/moot team holy grail combo.
  9. I concur with the initial responses. Defer law school for a year and do the MA program.
  10. Would it be a faux pas to wear a tan suit to a networking event? I don't get enough chances to wear my tan suit and it honestly looks really good on me.
  11. What I will say is that being forced to wait until late in the summer to get access to the LOC can be a blessing in disguise. The longer you have that money sitting there the more appealing a holiday in Bali starts to look.
  12. It will be very interesting to see how well Chick fil a does when it opens in Toronto.
  13. I also went with Scotiabank. Perhaps they've changed their policy in the last few months.
  14. This wasn't my experience. Last year I did get the credit cards right away but I only had access to my LOC once I had my proof of enrolment in late July.
  15. Are you talking about delaying graduation to boost your GPA? A 3.76 is a very respectable GPA so I'm not convinced that the additional expense would be worth it. The money might be better spent on an LSAT prep course.
  16. I can see this being true at U of T but certainly not at Osgoode. I'm very sympathetic to the free market and even I don't necessarily agree with all these points in their entirety, especially point 3.
  17. It took me months to join the group last year as well so don't worry too much.
  18. A 149 would likely preclude you from entry into both schools, even with your respectable GPA. There are several online course offerings. Princeton Review comes to mind. I also believe Oxford Seminars does in person classes as well. However, I'm going to guess that you either didn't study at all or didn't study very long before your initial sitting. If that's accurate then I'd suggest a prolonged period of self-study before shelling out on an expensive course.
  19. Whoever wore a cravat to your tutorial is a man of high culture.
  20. I thought the idea that there could be pipeline-related clothing was ridiculous but I stand corrected. https://canadaaction.store/product/i-love-canadian-pipelines-profleece/
  21. I think BQ makes an important point. It's not necessarily about finding someone's clothing offensive. It's more an issue of someone not looking like they care about how they present themselves to their colleagues and the impression that gives vis a vis fastidiosuness.
  22. Out of curiousity, beyond sweatpants, what else accounts for poor presentation in your book?
