  1. Also,, have none of you thought about how shitty our beer / wine / liquor options were in 69?
  2. Literally everyone participating in this conversation has >2000 posts on this silly website. We're all the walking, talking (posting) embodiment of people who enjoy using the internet too much.
  3. Dude, you can just not use social media or online dating
  4. Bursaries go up to $15,000 now, but regardless of that, a $15,000 bursary still puts you at $11,000 in tuition charges. That's why I said the generosity is rather disappointing in relation to the cost of tuition. Somebody in the level of financial need required to get $15,000 in bursaries from Oz, and thus paying $11,000 in tuition charges, is probably paying a few grand tops at UBC.
  5. I disagree with this statement, depending on the context. I've found Osgoode's bursaries quite disappointing compared to the level of financial aid I would have received at UBC or UVic, once you take into account the absurd tuition Oz charges. If you're limiting it to Ontario schools, then I tend to agree.
  6. Somehow, this thread has become even less fun than when it was about Toronto real estate prices. Bring back the overpriced anchovies!
  7. Jock is in undergrad, applying to law school this year. So certainly no experience in private practice.
  8. You're working off the base assumption that attending class is helpful in getting a good grade in the course. For many people and many classes, that's a faulty assumption.
  9. I don’t know, there are some pretty diverse student classes. To pick just a random example (literally just the first firm I thought of), Bennet Jones has 18 students in their Toronto office. Of those 18, 8 are women and 9 are people of colour. Of those 18, only 5 are white dudes. Considering 72.9% of Canadians are white, and 50% of Toronto is white, Bennet Jones seems to have a pretty diverse student class. I actually think @Deadpool‘s point about socio-economic background is more pertinent. My experience with Bay Street student classes has been that everyone presents as being from a wealthier background, although I also know for a fact that some people who seem to come from higher socio-economic backgrounds actually don’t. ETA: none of that is to say diversity in the profession isn’t a problem. Just that the assertion that student classes aren’t diverse across the board doesn’t line up with my experience.
  10. Complete aside, but Forensic’s recent push to make it look like they’re in law school after @Diplock called them out for appearing to have never gotten into law school is hilarious to me.
  11. Lenczner has slick water bottles – I've seen a bunch of the current 2L crop carrying them around, and I'm envious. Thomson Reuters gave out metal straw sets at Oz a while ago, too.
  12. Just outed yourself to anyone that went to the 1L cover letter writing session hosted by A&B 😂
  13. Dude, I’ve said like 15 times that it comes down to intelligence.
  14. From personal experience, I don't think that's true. Work ethic was a core component of my undergraduate performance, but it's had literally no effect on my law school performance. If anything, the more I've sat back the better I've done.
