  1. I've only heard back from London office personally.
  2. Thank you, I appreciate your response. I'm definitely hoping to get more of a read on the type of culture each office has during the interviews.
  3. Jumping in so I can hopefully help dispel this myth a bit. I'm a 2L student at Osgoode, and I've found the school to be one of the most welcoming, inclusive legal communities I've come across. The culture does change a bit year to year (imo), but in first year students generally stick to their sections and are understanding of the many stresses that pop up either individually or as a group. [By the way, when I say the culture changes, I generally mean that instead of bonding with your section, you generally start to branch out and spend more time with people who are interested in the same type of law as you.] It can definitely be a hard program (just like any other law school, I'm sure) but I've found that the friends you make, whether it be section acquaintances or a solid friend group, want to help you rather than impede you as a competitor. For my section, it was very much of a "we're in it together" type mindset. I don't know too much about York itself; I pretty much stick to Osgoode Chambers and the school, but in between the two there's a great communal vibe.
  4. I highly, highly recommend the above advice. I took the LSAT twice myself, and had a 5-pt difference between the two. The first time I thought that I had a pretty good understanding of the content, but my nerves really got to me during the exam. For prepping for the second one, I did a LOT of practice tests and set each section to either 30 or 35 min, depending on whether I wanted to focus more on content or more on time management.
  5. Hi everyone, I was wondering if I could get some insight from any Crown Attorneys/articling students/2L summer students who have had experience working as a Crown. I just went through the OCI process and on call day I received some interviews with various Toronto MAG offices. Could anyone lend some advice about the differences in the Toronto offices (e.g. Scarborough, North York, Etobicoke, Downtown)? I'm wondering if any of the offices are known for one thing or another, or if the cultures for differ between them. Thanks!
