  1. Allan Hutchison is super awesome -he came to one of my 4th year seminars a few times to talk about Legal Theory and it was very clear he was the smartest person in the room. Coolest dude. Will definitely be checking out this book by him!
  2. I just finished a Philosophy and Polisci degree at UofT and despite doing well in my philosophy courses my diagnostic LSAT was a 151. It took a lot of hard work to get my score up to where I was happy with it. I wouldn't infer from studying philosophy alone that you'll get a decent score. Edit: If you're from a low-income background, look into the UofT law School Access Program!
  3. I also went to UofT and really enjoyed my time here (majored in Ethics, Society & Law). That being said, I have friends from Ryerson and York that also participated in this year's admissions cycle that also loved their time in university. If I were you, I'd pick the program that you want to do most. 4 years is a long time to spend in a program that you don't like, and frankly your interest in law could change.
  4. On UofT's ACORN website I'm seeing $500 credited to my account -am I supposed to do anything with this or is this everything, granted that I've also handed in my deposit form to the Faculty of Law?
  5. After chatting with people about the summer before their 1L and what they wish they did, think I've decided officially not to apply to internships and the like. Time for a summer of a job i love and fun!
  6. I went -actually had a great time!
  7. I suppose the little voice is part of what got us into law school in the first place, but certainly isn't very useful when it's time to take a chill pill. Traveling for 2 months sounds incredibly ideal!
  8. The little voice inside my head is telling me to apply to internships and office work to gain more professional experience, but at the same time I doubt any of it would be related to the law and the August start time at UofT makes me ineligible for a lot of opportunities. I'm thinking about just continuing my part-time barista job but full-time, and taking weeks off for leisure and relaxation before a tough 3 years. What is everyone else thinking?
  9. Has anyone done a breakdown of how much more this will cost relative to what was paid this year for those of us who would be receiving an OSAP grant + aid from uoft? I talked to someone from the admissions office and they did say that the uoft aid structure had changed to Include a higher proportion of loans to bursaries, plus an anticipated OSAP reduction.
  10. I'd like to know this too. In the viewbook, they have a breakdown of the cost which seems to suggest that the OSAP and tax credits would be separate and not included in the calculation.
  11. A friend of mine maintained a 3.94 GPA for 3 years. His final semester's GPA after getting in to his top choice was a 3.1. No mention at all from the law school. Of course, this might not hold true for all schools.
  12. I'm thrilled to now be able to share my own acceptance story! I got the Osgoode email at home with my parents while my mother was on the phone with my grandmother. Ideal timing. Spent the rest of the day on cloud 9, then went out with friends and spent way too much at the bar. Acceptance came about a week after a rough breakup so it was perfectly timed.
  13. In! Just got the call a literal minute ago. 3.9 and 169, wrote the optional essay! AHHHH Last name mid-alpha
  14. Congratulations! What time was the call if I may ask?
