  1. UK route may be cheaper on the surface but the real and opportunity cost combined may be higher than going to a Canadian Law School.
  2. GPA is calculated with all the courses with grades as the denominator and the grades/mark as numerator. In case of a P/F grade, there is no "grade" assigns to it. A"pass" will not be included in the denominator since there is no "grade" assigns to it. Similarly, a "fail" is not the same as "Fail grade" for the same reason. I would say the P/F will not affect your GPA. You can contact OLSAS to clarify
  3. so it is 3.99 out of 4.0? Ottawa 157+ Queens 158+ 160 will open a lot of doors

  5. I went to OZ for L2 and L3 and I received $21K bursaries. My net tuition was lower than Ottawa..... Do UK law schools offer bursaries to foreign students?
  6. Is the offer from a law school outside Ontario?

  8. Your base is $75,000 and you will get $75,000 That means you get 50% up to $150,000 However, you will get a lower percentage between $150,001 to$174,999. You will get $75,000+$2,500=$77,500 if $174,999= $77,500 or 44.28% For $210,000 you got $95,000. $210,000-$175,000 =$35,000 x 20% = $7,000+$2,500+$75,000 $84,500 is 40% of $210,000. If you pull in $250,000,then you will get $250,000-$210,000 =$40,000 20% of $40,000 = $8,000. Your total will be $84,500+$8,000 = $92,500 $92,500 is 37% of $250,000. "diminishing return arrangements?"

  10. I won't careless why she decided to go where. I want to point out that U of T costs more than OZ even after Bursaries.
  11. "similar wealth to my own what they were getting" Do they also have similar available resources, expenses, accumulated educational debts and personal reasons....... "The primary criterion for receipt of a bursary is financial need. Decisions are made based on a variety of considerations, including available resources, expenses, accumulated educational debt and personal factors, including medical and familial circumstances.
  12. That means your choice had nothing to do with finance.
