  1. Hey, I am a 1L student looking to sign a lease in either June or July for a 2 or 3 - bedroom apartment. Ideally, looking for other 1L students to live with. Most likely will be looking for a place in the Betline district for about $600-800/mo per person. Let me know if interested or how I should go about looking for roommates
  2. Similar stats to you cGPA3.26 and 160 - have heard back from 2 schools in Ontario, but will be accepting Calgary. Will be declining Windsor this week. Best of luck.
  3. I just got into Calgary and I took it three times 1 - 153 2 - 159 3 - 160
  4. IMO I would say overall Calgary is the better school, I'm from Ontario and I decined Ottawa for Calgary so granted I am biased. However, I believe UoC to have a more innovative curriculum, better facilites, better job market and their articling employment rate is amazing! Both cities get very cold in the Winters, so there's that. However, if you are dead-set on practicing in Ontario then yeah Ottawa would seem a more viable option. That being said it is not impossible to transition between provinces, especially if you have good grades and/or a bit of nepotism (or 'Networking'). Take that as you will, but Calgary FTW
  5. I have lived in Kingston all my life and have recently been accepted into Calgary Law and still waiting on Queen's. So I would also appreciate a comparison of the law schools. Obviously I think a majority of it comes down to where you want to practice law as it would be harder to transition from say Calgary to Ontario if you went to Calgary Law and vice versa. In regards to Kingston as a city: In the summers Kingston is one of the best places to live. It is very warm, has great patios, restaurants and festivals, etc. The job market however is not strong and you would most likely look to Toronto for summer employment. In the winter Kingston gets cold, a lot colder than Toronto. There is not much to do... thats about all I can say about that. Students typically live in something called the 'Ghetto', which is right beside the university and walking distance to downtown. Is there anything in particular you would like to know about Kingston ?
  6. I agree, but to apply for student financial support disbursements it does take some estimation. For example I recently filled out an application for financial support and I was asked to provide how much food and rent will be for the academic year. I have not found a place to rent yet and I have no idea how to accurately predict food spending so I just averaged what I thought I would spend, taking a conservative approach for my estimates.
  7. What grades did you get in 1L/ 2L ?
  8. Hey everyone, I was accepted to U of C and was wondering if anyone has any knowledge about financing options available to in-coming students. Additionally, for 2L / 3L students, what type of marks are necessary in 1L to receive academic scholarships/ awards ?
  9. That's good to know. And yes I believe Calgary's 1L recruiting cycle is good, but I am ideally looking to work in either Vancouver or Toronto over the summers.
  10. Yes because I might be working in another city for summer 1L. So I would rather not be paying for a lease if I am living somewhere else. I also don't want to be scrambling last minute to get a good place when every other student is doing the same, as I assume as it gets closer to September the better leases will be taken. I think I might just sign a lease for a 2bdr and post in the FB group looking for a roomate.
