  1. Did they tell you the amount or did you have to ask?
  2. Would the salaries for most of the litigation or insurance defence firms that are participating in the recruit be the same? If yes, does anyone know their apprx articling salaries?
  3. I have an interview with one my top choices on Tuesday morning because I could not schedule them in the monday morning/afternoon slot that they had suggested. Would I be doing too much in trying to change one of my monday morning interviews to an earlier time and seeing if their (the firm I scheduled for tuesday) originally suggested time is still open? I want to make sure they don't think I am not interested or don't already find the candidates they want by monday. The problem is I don't even know if either of the firms would have the ability to change the times so I don't want to email them then say nvm original time is fine if the changes don't work out. Am I overthinking or should I try to make the change?
  4. How relevant is the time and day of your interview in the articling recruit? I know in the 2L recruit having a Tuesday noonish or even morning first interview meant you pretty much had zero chances. Is this the same type of idea in articling? Or do they care less about interview time and 2nd/3rd interviews?
  5. I’m actually pretty much booked. Don’t even know where I’d schedule them. I’ve called them a bunch of times and even emailed and haven’t gotten any responses. Pretty weird.
  6. If we haven’t gotten a call from a firm we got an itc from is it time to call them ourselves?
  7. I know there is a rule about not taking a course that at some point overlaps with another, but has anyone ever had any experience with Osgoode actually kicking students out of such courses? With classes being online and many not even being live, there aren't as many issues with taking a course that overlaps. So, just wondering if anyone has any experience with how strict the school is with this?
  8. Can anybody who's been through the January portion of ELGC give some details on what to expect? Like what are the general topics? How do the case studies work? and whether we can chose our own essay topic or if its given to us? Thanks
  9. On the topic of emails and slow replies, has anyone gotten their proof of enrolment yet?
  10. Are we only allowed to park in the parking that we asked for in our application? Or is it more of a go to which ever outdoor parking has a spot?
  11. If I sent a scan of the signed tenancy agreement before the deadline I was given to a Donna should I be worried that she has not responded yet? I sent it on Friday and haven’t gotten a response (today is the deadline to respond to the offer).
  12. Did you ever get a response to your preference? I checked out chambers a week ago and know where I’d like a room, but don’t know if I can just email them and say this is the one I want.
  13. Speaking of chambers, is that recruitment email stilll the way to get a tour? Also, do you get to chose the floor, street side, etc before going into a unit? Didn’t see any option when applying.
  14. Did you get this when you applied for the permit or around the start of the semester?
  15. I noticed that parking permit dates start on sept 1st, but Osgoode classes and orientation start a good week to ten days before that. Anyone know what happens in that time frame? Do I have to pay for the parking or would it just be included in the reserved payment?
  16. What’s the difference of unreserved and reserved parking? Also, What’s the closest parking to chambers? Thanks
  17. Are the course grading schemes in 1L more test or essay based?
  18. I posted this in the 2017 version but since it's locked now I thought I'd copy it here. I don't necessarily expect the op to know the answers so if anyone could answer them in general that would be great. 1. What's the deadline of sort that I can request a type of room at chambers and get my choice? Like if I would firm my acceptance first or second week of March and apply for a one bedroom would I for sure get it? 2. The acceptance deposit letter says that if I am not going to send the $450 deposit right now to contact osgoode, but looking at past years it seems a lot of people just sent it in whenever they firm accepted. So if I got the acceptance first week of January and provisional accepted but plan on firm accepted later (want to see responses from other schools since I paid for them anyways), should I tell them or just send it in when I firm?
  19. Didn't want to ask this in the accepted thread so that it can stay on topic but I have 2 little questions: 1. What's the deadline of sort that I can request a type of room at chambers and get my choice? Like if I would firm my acceptance first or second week of March and apply for a one bedroom would I for sure get it? 2. The acceptance deposit letter says that if I am not going to send the $450 deposit right now to contact osgoode, but looking at past years it seems a lot of people just sent it in whenever they firm accepted.

  20. Yep. I made that an important part of my ps because I'm an ethnic minority and had a lot of experiences to write about (username is just random).
  21. Got the email this morning!! Gpa: 3.66 (B2 3.75) Lsat:154 i think I had slightly above average extra curriculars and letters of recommmendation, but there must have been something in there that made up for my crappy lsat lol. Btw, does anyone's olsas still not show the offer of admission?
  22. Well, I was planning on taking your guys' advice and rewrite in February, but I just got into Osgoode with a 154!!!!!
  23. So I decided to retake the lsat in feb 2018 and updated the future lsat's on olsas as well. Does this mean that the schools I applied too most likely won't be looking at my application until that lsat score is in? Or is there a chance that they could still accept/reject before?
  24. I meant that I took 2 lsats back to back (dec and feb) so my study time in between was short and I ended up doing some of the prep tests that I had done before. Since this is my 3rd time taking the test, I've already done most of the recent prep tests so I just didn't want my familiarity with the tests give me an advantage during practice that's not there in the actual test.
