  1. Is it hard to find somewhere else half way through the year? I wanted to live there for the whole year but a lot of people make it seem like it’s bad place to stay?
  2. I accepted my offer to Osgoode (provisionally) and tried to access the email by logging in but still haven’t been able to get through? Other people I know were able to get through but I don’t think they firmly accepted. Has anyone else had this problem?
  3. I don't see any recent post about UofT, would anyone mind making one?
  4. Thanks so much! That's super helpful and a great way to look at it! Good luck to you too!
  5. Thanks so much! I think your decision making process seems very reasonable and your advice is really helpful. I actually haven't really been focusing on weighing the pros of each school, I've mainly been comparing the cons which isn't really that helpful considering that they're both great schools!
  6. If you don’t mind me asking, how did it affect you?
  7. Thanks for all your advice! It’s definitely reassuring to hear a perspective from someone who chose Osgoode over UofT. I’ll take some time to do more research and probably some time off this forum!
  8. Thanks for your response! I think the whole emphasis on Bay Street definitely is influencing me a little. I have thought a lot about how Osgoode seems a lot better for social justice/public services and I think this is where my interests lie. My only concern is that I'm not entirely sure and I haven't even started law school yet, so I'm afraid of starting school and realizing that my interests are completely different. That's kind of why I was trying to look at which school provides a wider range of options.
  9. This is something I was concerned about but I have heard that the Strike doesn't affect the law students
  10. Thanks so much for your help! A lot of the reasons you listed were some of the things I was considering when I decided Osgoode was right for me. I do have two reservations though I've heard from others that it's largely a myth that UofT's culture is unfriendly and more high-pressure than other schools. I know that the students going there are some of the best and that probably has some affect on what it feels like going there but can anyone who's attended UofT confirm or disconfirm this? Most people I know who attend UofT live downtown or somewhere within Toronto and their commute consists of a fairly quick subway ride which is cheap too. On the other hand, I've heard that York is considered a commuter school and I actually know some people who spend an hour (one way) commuting there everyday so I'm not necessarily concerned about commuting if I went to UofT.
  11. Yes! I've had a look at it and depending on how much Osgoode gives in bursaries, the cost could be pretty similar, I just don't really know what Osgoode would offer me
  12. The issue though is that I have no idea whether I would receive anywhere close to 15K from Osgoode. UofT has a financial aid calculator so I have a pretty good idea of how much I would receive, but Osgoode doesn't
