  1. As someone in a dual-degree program where I ended up having to focus on part of my other program in 1L, I cannot stress enough how horrible of an experience it was. Avoid this kind of situation like the plague. In 1L only focus on 1L. I also agree with this. Law school really isn't going anywhere soon. Make sure you're ready to tackle it and don't rush into it!
  2. In the same vein as @conge, I found this from Osgoode's research LLM website: but the professional LLM from Osgoode had this to say: I would recommend reaching out to see what steps they recommend you take next in your situation.
  3. So I just wanted to check and see if anyone is in a similar situation. I submitted my OSAP app in May, and the amount that I am supposed to get is ABSURDLY low (barely over 1k). I can assure everyone that I am not related to any super wealthy Nigerian royalty, and I definitely qualify as a low-income person with 0 assets. I called York a week ago and they reassured me that they would be readjusting this amount once they confirm my tuition amount... Has anyone dealt with this, or know someone who dealt with this? Note: I am in one of the dual JD degree programs (not sure if it makes a difference because I am only enrolled in the JD portion September - April).
  4. The autobiographical sketch is more like the place to verify what you've written about in your ps. It will ask you to fill out information about where some of your achievements occurred, as well as contact information for a person who could confirm that you have actually completed or achieved x and y. In my experience, it was very time consuming to fill out, so when you get to that stage make sure you give yourself enough time not only to fill it out but to also make sure all your info (including contact info for your verifiers) is accurate and up to date.
  5. I thought U of T only considers your best three years, not all four.
  6. I mean Osgoode is a "social justice" school, I guess some people take that seriously.
  7. I'm not that surprised, why would students who are paying 25K+ a year for school extend their own suffering...
  8. From what I've seen and heard from York profs, Osgoode isn't affected by the strike in the same way as York is because of the strict timeline in law school (articling, passing the bar etc.) As far as I know, courses are still being offered and carried out. Students obviously have the right to not partake in courses as a result of their beliefs regarding the strike, but I don't believe many Oz students exercise this right... Source: I am a grad student in the JD/MES program
  9. I'm not sure if you're eligible or able to attend but I do know that Osgoode and UofT both offer free LSAT prep for students in financial need... https://www.osgoode.yorku.ca/about/accessibility/all-access-to-law-and-learning/ https://www.law.utoronto.ca/admissions/youth-outreach/lsap Definitely worth looking into.
  10. I think it took like a week after for me, but I dropped it off in person.
  11. Hi all thought I would chime in I'm going to Osgoode and I met with RBC today. I was offered 125K at prime with two years to repay following graduation. Only paying interest in the months that I don't withdraw from or use my LOC (which came to about 80$/month that they would withdraw from the LOC itself).
  12. From Osgoode's website: Applicants must have successfully completed a minimum of three full years of study at a recognized university in a program leading to a degree (equivalent of 90 credit hours) by the end of June in the year in which they hope to gain admission to law school. We consider your Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) for all of your years of undergraduate study. https://www.osgoode.yorku.ca/programs/juris-doctor/jd-admissions/eligibility-requirements/ L2 is not the criteria that Osgoode make their admission decisions on, it's just another factor in your application.
  13. Right... but most of those people accepted with those stats filled out part b, so I think the odds might be different for @leafsfan2431 given their general applicant status
  14. Osgoode doesn't consider L2 only cGPA. Did you fill out part b? How are your ECs and your LORs?
  15. Hey I'm in the MES/JD program and am currently doing the MES portion. I personally love the MES program and am really happy that I'm doing the MES/JD program. If you have any questions PM-me.
