  1. Hi there, Apart from using a back up drive, how do you back up your computer? I really want to protect myself from losing notes in the future. Is there a way that I can back up my files through iCloud or Google Drive? What do you guys use? THANKs!
  2. Hey guys! I was wondering if you had any advice for these profs, or could offer any insight into their way of examination or anything that would be helpful? I've been trying to locate CANs/summaries but haven't had any luck. Any advice on what to focus or tips for studying ? Thanks in advance!

  3. Im looking for a bookstand to put my books on top of to read! Do you guys have any recommendations? I was looking into something like this: https://www.amazon.ca/Gibson-Holders-6AC-B-Painting-Display/dp/B000RMOL06/ref=pd_sim_229_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=8F4BTDFXNBNSK8SXB8WH It would be best to get it off Amazon so if you know of any that are there and sturdy, let me know!
  4. I've tried looking on all the Facebook groups to no luck - let me know if you have it! (PM me?)
  5. Thank you very much for your help! I promise to pay it forward!
  6. When you're given a case to read before class, do you summarize it in a certain way (i.e.: IRAC method)? Or do you summarize it based on important points as you read? Do you edit that after class? Or do you just highlight important things and head to class without notes? Help a 1L out!
  7. So as an incoming 1L coming from a non-polisci/humanities background, I'm a little confused as to what to do with readings. Do you normally read the pages instructed by the profs and take notes before lecture (or should I just read the readings and take notes in class with that sufficing?) How do you remember what you read for class (i.e.: in case you are cold called)? Or do you underline or highlight whats important in the text only? I guess I thought "readings" would involve cases that I could summarize for myself before class rather than legal theories or concepts..What works for you and whats the best way to prepare notes for exams?
  8. What did you guys find helpful in this course (Principles of Legal Research with Melanie Mallet)? I'm an incoming 1L and I'd love to hear your opinions!
  9. Thanks for this! Any ideas where to buy a good suit skirt?
  10. What is the general consensus about how to look for networking events vs. interviews for women? Are skirts ever preferred over pants? Should tights be worn with a skirt (I'm assuming yes)? Should I get a pantsuit or is a black blazer with black pants/skirt okay? Is short hair preferred over long? Are heels preferred over flats? Is there something else I should keep in mind? Thanks ahead of time - I really appreciate the input!
  11. That was one of the things I was concerned about...how would OCI recruiters see such grades?
  12. Hi there! Just wondering if any of you has done a semester or year abroad within the common law program? If so, what was your experience like? Did you have any advantages or disadvantages?
  13. That's what I thought - but I just wanted to make sure. Seems reasonable as there are still other people waiting to hear back! Thanks and good luck to those waiting!
  14. Hi guys!, I was put in the wait pool at Osgoode. I already accepted admission to another school (first provisionally, then it became firm on July 2nd). I just checked Oasis (Osgoode) and it says I was taken out of the pool because I cancelled my offer (I'm assuming this is because I accepted another school). I thought schools offer admission until the end of August....how do people get offers at the end of August if they are cancelled off the wait pools?
