  1. I was just wondering if any other future Oz students or current Oz students were looking at the different curricular streams, and/or what their opinions might be on them? I'm starting at Oz in the fall and wasn't sure if it was worthwhile to take the Globalization and the Law perspective first year course and go into the ICT stream. I've heard that U of O and McGill tend to be stronger in International law, so wasn't sure if Oz was the best place to be pursuing such an area of study...just looking for general thoughts (and i know i'm thinking WAY ahead, but I think I'm pretty excited about starting!!!)
  2. hey sungoama, i'm actually originally from the Burbs in the GTA. I've been living downtown ottawa, so I'm used to walking EVERYWHERE, since it's a good walking city (small w/ lots of pretty crap to be around). I've never squaredanced in my life...i'm actually a square who can't dance
  3. I walk to the grocery store to do my groceries Sungoama It's the only exercise I get On the topic tho (well, really off the topic considering the thread), I'll have a car next year to commute in, so maybe I can use that to make friends w/ people who are in res
  4. Parking at Oz is really $800 for both semester!?!?!?!? BLARGH
  5. it made like a .08 difference for me. Quite a big one I think...
  6. Did anyone on here get the Bogoroch scholarship? Just curious. (I'm also thinking I should change my user name...It's long and lame...when I get bored maybe I'll start a poll for what my new username should be in the Need Advice board )
  7. Has anyone been offered any scholarships at Oz, and if so, which ones, how much, and what were your stats and background? Just curious. Thanks
  8. It's not Oz or U of T, just for clarity. And the $ is more than 17K, if that alters/affects anyone's possible opinion/advice (and thank you all SOO SOO much for offering your two-cents!!!!) Edited by: Law Student Hopeful at: 3/31/05 4:52 pm
  9. Hey So, my choice #2 (or maybe 1b choice) offered me last week a considerable scholarship (the largest they offer). But, i only provisionally accepted their offer...so they called today and said they want me to make a firm decision within a day or two to hold onto the scholarship...should I wait for my #1 choice, or take the money and content myself w/ less debt...? Really need advice ASAP!!!
  10. I'm going into law for the superficial and noble reasons. On the superficial side, lawyers tend to have better pay and employment prospects than alot of other professions. I know it's not like a 'written ticket' or anything, and I know the job market can be tough for lawyers too and the pay is prolly exagerated sometimes, but I'm confident that I'll do well enough to do well w/ a legal career. Also, I guess I'm pulled by the perception that there is some social status and social mobility in this career (again, I may be wrong, but I'm just saying my perception of this prolly played a role). Related to this, I think I'm proud that I'm just about the only person in my entire family who's finished one university degree, let alone two. My family would be proud of me no matter what, but I feel like pursuing this has sorta involved me really trying to make good on all that they've tried to give me despite meagre resources. On the noble, "I'm gonna save the world" side of things, I really do think the world is unfair and messed up more than it needs to be. After being overseas and seeing some insane poverty and injustice (those commercials don't even begin to convey how bad it is), I can't help but get mad when I look around at some of the things I see...especially 'Pimp my Ride'. How can so many people have such a @#%$ lot in life while others make a show about a pimped up car...blah...So, I'm gonna save the world If that doesn't work out, at least I have the superficial stuff to fall back on. That and a pimped up ride
  11. Hey Dulfun and Grazek, would you guys mind posting your stats? Thanks.
  12. it is fine. I'm surprised you haven't heard from anywhere yet...If you don't hear from anywhere before April 1st, I think you'll definitely hear after that deadline date as space becomes available.
  13. Blah....I feel like I've somehow turned this into some childish petty rant fight grade six blah blah blah blargh (with ALOT of help from HU ). I think stuff comes out online that can be percieved outta context, cuz letters on a screen don't give the same context as inflection or body language. I think an administrator should just shut this thread down or we can just get back to debating (the board may not be for fighting, but I think DEBATING is crucial to forums like this) school rankings, their relevancy, and their accuracy. I'm willing just to offer everyone I've ticked off a firm hand shake. God forbid I become another Lio Hutz on this board.
  14. HU, as a stupid pre-law dumbass, I'd like to thank you for giving us all a glimpse at how arrogant and condescending some law students can get. I really appreciate it; your guidance and eloquent words have provided me with more enlightenment than any welcome day, pre-law book, standarized test, or fellow pre-law dumbass coul ever give The only question you raise is what's worse: an idiot pre-law student that thinks he/she knows everything, or a rude condescending current law student who thinks he's superior simply cuz he's in law school now...? Either way, you are my new hero Edited by: Law Student Hopeful at: 3/18/05 5:30 pm
