  1. I applied for OSAP but I just received an email fron York saying my tuition is due August 27- is this normal? I thought I had until October something to pay since I applied for OSAP.
  2. Tuxes seem WAY too formal for the boat cruise. Even the Dean's Gala you could probably wear a nice suit and be fine. @abasilplant I'm a girl and I'm just planning on wearing nice pants with a bodysuit or something like that for the boat cruise. The venue we go to after is also just a sports bar...
  3. Unless you're in my position (just waiting for York to confirm enrollment so OSAP can release the funds), I think you'd be better off contacting OSAP. From what I understand of the process, York doesnt have much involvement until confirming enrollment. York isn't going to be much help anyway so may as well see if OSAP can do better.
  4. Thanks everyone!! @BlockedQuebecois yeah I saw Emond's add last night while I was flipping through the O Week booklet, will definitely be checking that out!
  5. Mine's been calculated for a few weeks (I applied late May). But it still says they're waiting for York to confirm my enrollment before the funds are released, so you aren't alone in that. As a heads up, I tried calling York financial services yesterday and the line was dead. When I called the general York line they said there was pretty much zero chance I'd get through to someone this close to September unless I showed up in-person to make an appointment. Really not impressed with this.
  6. Do any of the required 1L textbooks come in electronic format? It doesn't seem like it from the bookstore website, but it would be so much easier than lugging around a bunch of huge books all the time. Thanks!
  7. Do you mean for a line of credit? I emailed Vicky about 2 weeks ago for one and she sent it to the bank 2 days later. Although from my understanding, now that we're actually enrolled in courses, you would email student services for this.
  8. The email they sent today should say your section and which contracts small group you're in.
  9. @ScotiabankLawAdvisor I submitted my application over a week ago and haven't heard back as to whether it's approved or not. Is this normal or should I follow up? Don't want to bug the rep if this is standard.
  10. You can post here instead of making all these new threads, although most of your answers can be found by just searching the forum:
  11. Yeah there'll be a bunch of taxis at taxi stands at each gate. Just line up and the attendant will get you one. It's a set fare by zone, but I've only ever gone downtown so I'm not sure how much it would cost to get to Osgoode (for reference, I live about 45 mins by car from Pearson and I think it costs $60). You're right, there is public transit but going on the TTC with 8 months worth of luggage would be hell, plus it would probably take you closer to 45 minutes.
  12. It's about a 15-20 minute drive from Pearson to York. I don't imagine there would be much rush hour traffic on that route.
  13. Random and insignificant question that nobody should rush to answer: I've received emails from Osgoode students in the past, and I've noticed that their display name always shows up as: Jane Doe 2018/Lawstudents/Osgoode (replacing Jane Doe and 2018 with their name and year they started). Are we stuck with this or can we change it to just our name? I've briefly fiddled around with the mail account and can't really tell. It seems kind of weird/unprofessional if we're stuck with it.
  14. I'm in the same boat. I just sent a test email from my work account to my Osgoode address but for some reason it was routed to my gmail (with nothing showing up in my Osgoode account). When I replied it showed as coming from my gmail rather than my Osgoode account (obviously). I'm going to email Osgoode and I can let you guys know what they say. I haven't even tried linking these two accounts so I'm not sure why that happened. I actually prefer everything going to my gmail but I'm worried emails will get lost.
  15. They ask you to attach the form to the money order so you should contact them.
  16. Hmm, I guess it was ambiguous wording on Scotia's part that gave me that impression. They said "as an Osgoode student, i can secure you $125k at prime" which to me sounds like the amount could vary by school. Good to know it doesn't though!
  17. I also used the Osgoode rep listed on this chart. EDIT: @1122 I did get the impression that the terms (at least how much they offer) may vary by school. I was offered $125K at prime for Osgoode.
  18. I'd wait to start looking unless there's a specific building you're interested in and want to be put on a waitlist. A lot of landlords post only a month in advance, maybe two.
  19. OP, if you look in Midtown, you can for sure find something below the $2000 mark. A quick search on viewit.ca shows 107 listings for bachelors/ 1 bedrooms for $1600 or less: http://www.viewit.ca/vwListings.aspx?cs=1&city=Toronto+-+(T2). A lot of them are in older buildings and are missing amenities like A/C, en suite laundry, etc. Not sure if those are deal breakers for you or not. Again, there are even a few in the $1200 range, but with utilities you will most likely go over that. If you are strict on the $1200 ceiling, I would strongly consider the advice to stay on campus.
  20. Sadly, $1200 is not a realistic off-campus living budget in Toronto (for a studio/ 1 bedroom at least). I have seen some Midtown bachelors for around that price, but a) they look pretty tiny and b) the rental market is very competitive, so I don't think it's smart to bank on snagging something for that price. You should be prepared to spend upwards of $1400 for anything decent (which I know is obviously subjective).
  21. I was quoted 125K at prime by a Scotia rep.
  22. My friend who goes to Windsor received an email saying a breach of applicant data took place on the 9th. Doubtful that's referring to a different breach.
