  1. I have no clue if I did or not.. I especially don’t remember declaring anything on my application! 😕
  2. Oh wait.. I wonder if that’s my application fee being credited back since I accepted my offer? Does anyone know about this?
  3. I think that’s everything you’re supposed to do! If your account is credited $500, I would assume it means they received the deposit because mine doesn’t say that yet since I only submitted it yesterday! Mine says $100 though which I find really strange ... I don’t even know what that could be for
  4. I accepted mine a week ago and it doesn’t say offer expired, it just says “provisionally accepted.” I changed it to a firm acceptance yesterday but it still never said anything about it being expired! Maybe you should call olsas just to make sure nothing went wrong?
  5. Thank you !! I just got an email to the account I registered to OLSAS (so just my Gmail)
  6. Really? Isn’t it just that estimate form? Because it didn’t seem that bad to me! Or is there a lot more that you need to fill out? I’m just worried because if I don’t get around the amount that was estimated, I’ll be pretty stressed out about financing it lol
  7. Yeah I figured as much! UPDATE for anyone in the future: I asked them just because I figured it was worth a shot, and they said that U of T specifically only offers bursaries strictly based on need, and they don't have any merit based scholarships! They are quite generous amounts though
  8. Aww that's too bad! But still awesome that you got the scholarships that you did! Thanks
  9. Yeah that was my main concern, because I feel like U of T would have no real interest in retaining me as a student anyways, especially if it's going to cost them more, since there are so many people that were admitted with higher stats than mine! 😂
  10. Ah okay thank you! And that's great! Did you end up getting anything from them because of it?
  11. Hey everyone! Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I was just wondering if anyone had any successful experience using scholarship offers from other law schools to get any additional funding from the school you plan on attending? I was offered a scholarship valued at 40K from Western and one valued at 30K from Osgoode that are both conditional on me firm accepting my offer by April 1st. I was completely set on accepting U of T, but this offer from Osgoode made me rethink things. I was wondering if this has worked for anyone in the past, and if it did, do you have any tips on approaching this? If I plan on attending U of T, I don't want to do anything that they would consider offensive or out of line, but if there is the chance of getting any additional money I would obviously want that opportunity! Thanks!
  12. Full disclaimer: I'm an applicant myself so I don't know this answer for sure... But I've seen in the past on this forum that most people who have an interview get admitted afterwards! Don't be too nervous, to me it doesn't make sense why they would contact you for an interview if they weren't seriously interested in you! They have so many applicants so why would they waste their time? Anyways, good luck
  13. At the admitted student reception/welcome day event today there were 140 students in attendance but they said they sent out around 200 offers already (if this helps put it in perspective)! But I also think your stats are definitely competitive for admission!! Good luck
  14. I have a cgpa of 3.99 (with a 4.0 L2)/160 and I got a really large scholarship ($20K and renewable to $40k) from Western! I also got roughly 15K from Queens. I know others who have received the same or similar at both of those schools with a lower LSAT than yours as well. Not sure if this helps with your decision! Edit: probably should mention that these were both merit based scholarships!
  15. So I'm in the exact same boat as you (originally dead set on Osgoode but then an unexpected acceptance from U of T changed everything) and I thought I'd share my decision making process if it may be of any help to you or anyone else on here! The way I see it, there are enormous pros to both schools and at the end of the day you truly can't go wrong with either one. So when I found myself comparing pros, I just kept confusing myself more. I honestly do not feel equipped to commit to a certain direction of law at this point, which makes it even harder for me to pick the school that I feel will provide me with the most opportunities for my needs and interests. For that reason, I've decided to make a list of which areas of law where I reasonably feel like I would be disadvantaged by going to U of T over Osgoode. While it may be hard to narrow down my interests because I have so many, I find it so much easier to know what I don't like. It really helps put it into perspective that there are so many opportunities at both schools, but if you feel like Osgoode would only potentially disadvantage you on topics you don't even like, then it makes your choice of going to U of T so much easier! When I did this myself, I realized that while Osgoode might have more clinical/experiential opportunities, the areas where I feel like they have a leg up over U of T are just not areas that I'm interested in. For this reason, I'm personally leaning towards U of T just because I know I would be much happier living downtown and they also have so many amazing opportunities that I'm interested in! Obviously I'm going to wait until I go to both of the welcome days and probably do a bit more research, but that's my current thought process. However, this might be totally different for you if you feel like the areas where Osgoode can provide more opportunity are areas that you are interested in, and if I was in that position, it's something I would seriously consider. I'm not sure if this helps, but I hope it does! Good luck with your decision making
