  1. IIRC these are the prizes available. https://www.osgoode.yorku.ca/programs/juris-doctor/financial-services/fund-law-school/scholarships-awards-prizes/medals-awards-prizes/
  2. So this is super subjective. it's going to matter on: 1) Is there an award for the class? Check the awards list to see if it's eligible and 2) Were you the only A+? If not, did the professor find the other's mark to be better than yours in some way? Like we can't really give a guarantee here. You're going to have to wait and see, to be frank. Checking if there's an award in the first place is a good idea
  3. You do NOT need to take tax. Take it if you want to practice it or need it for your practice, but it's not essential for the bar.
  4. Tbh I did the 15 credit route and haven't regretted it for a second. The hands on experience I got was invaluable and I do feel like I learned more there than I did with some courses. I know you've probably been told this, but it's not the worst idea to do some bar courses. It's not make or break, but it does help a bit.
  5. Yep. Transfers normally do a 3L clinic. You'll have some last minute opportunities open up, but it's really rare.
  6. They all open at the same time regardless of semester. Early Jan and deadlines being later in the month
  7. I'm not sure if I agree with you here, to be honest. It helps to factor in the amount of experience you'll get, whether you'd get to stay involved on campus etc. It shouldn't be the only factor, but I know many who went with Parkdale over CLASP or CLASP over Parkdale based on the length of the clinic
  8. Yeah I agree with Roll above. Tbf, you'll likely get something on campus. It may not necessarily be your first choice - especially with CLASP and Parkdale - but there are a LOT of opportunities. Something to look into early, RA positions are pretty fantastic and some run during the school year.
  9. What do you mean by ECs? That's a fairly broad word in general, especially with Oz
  10. Oh no, I mean York is far less reliable than a Camry.
  11. Have fun, folks. Orientation Week was one of my favorite events of the year. It's a fantastic way to meet upper year students and your classmates. I have a copy of last year's booklet if it helps. Keep in mind that the organizers can change everything up if they wanted to. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1_B4zEzRUm-khzHyU6evpsVdULASUAUJD
  12. Also, no 1L takers to do this year's thread? Happy to keep this one going but it would be great if someone could step up and pay it forward. You'll get assistance from the upper years.
  13. If there's two of you, I'd definitely go for the 1 bedroom large if you can get it. But you should get that application in and I'd also recommend emailing them and just explaining WHY you need the 1 bedroom large. It would easily be enough space for two and also give you some breathing room during exams. So it's kind of unknown how they hand out the apartments. There were some who put their names on and had to wait, and I also know two who just got them in 1L at the beginning. There are two emptying out this year I think, which will help
