  1. Osgoode definitely has RA positions during the year. Many are/were posted on the job board (MyCareer).
  2. Osgoode has not communicated a decision on grading yet. So it is inaccurate at this time to say Oz has graded exams (unless you have some insider info?)
  3. I can't speak for law schools, but UofT had this type of pass/fail for undergrads during the strike in 2015.
  4. I agree with the first reply - based on anecdotal info from myself and some other Osgoode students who share a lot of similarities with you in terms of debt youre coming to Osgoode with and your resources, I would guess you will get about $1500 or 3000 every year.
  5. There is nothing bad about doing an intensive in 3L instead of 2L. Doing one in 2L may help give you experiences to talk about during OCIs and the articling recruit, but you can do other volunteer opportunities in 2L (e.g. OPIR opportunities, PBSC) which will also give you stuff to talk about during the recruits.
  6. I suggest preparing for questions like “what is the role of the Crown”, behavioural/situational questions, questions where you’re asked to explain what skills and experiences you have that would make you a good summer student. The Crown Prosecutions Manual may be a good thing to skim over, although I’m not saying you have to study it indepth.
  7. I don’t think there was an email or any sort of clear official communication to the students about this, which is definitely weird. But if you look in the document called “Transcript of Academic Advising Session” under Syllabus & Enrollment in MyOsgoode, Mya Rimon stated that the required admin law elements were covered in state & citizen and legal process for 1Ls in the 2017/2018 school year.
  8. My understanding is that if you took state & citizen this past school year (i.e. 2017/2018), you’re not required to take the admin law course or the module because state & citizen covered what is required for the degree. I think that’s also the case for incoming 1Ls.
  9. You're infact required to apply for a line of credit before applying for bursaries at Osgoode (see here: http://www.osgoode.yorku.ca/resources-and-services/financial-services/fund-law-school/bursary-program/).
  10. I think it is because you haven't mailed the form yet because my status changed on OASIS when they received my form. I would mail out the form asap and contact Osgoode because I think the form was due on April 1st (unless your deadline is different if you got accepted recently)
  11. Got the email a couple hours ago! OASIS has also been updated with the accepted message. cGPA (self-calculated OLSAS): 3.77 LSAT: 163 My extracurriculars and LORs are about average, maybe on the weaker side.
  12. Yeah I was surprised too, ended up pushing my rewrite back to February (was originally signed up for December) because I was scared of doing worse or even getting the same score again (which the speaker also said would be bad)
  13. Not sure about other schools, but I went to a UofT Law info session at UofT and they said it does look bad if your retake score is worse and they do take that into account. The speaker basically suggested that if your first score isn't great, your retake should be a lot better, or else it actually counts against you.
