  1. I''m a current 1L from a somewhat similar financial situation (no parental support, similar OSAP debt) with some differences (about $14k savings and $135k PSLOC) and I received a $3k bursary this year. i also live at Passy. My OSAP amount was about $15k (grant .+ loans). I think you have a fairly accurate estimate.
  2. I applied mid April and got the housing offer just now
  3. My personal take on EC's for law apps is not to become too fixated on the title of experience but instead on how the EC activity has helped you grow (and explain accordingly in your personal statements). So I wouldn't dismiss the value of your lifeguarding experience and I would think about what sort of volunteer/EC opportunities I could pursue before my law apps are due, based on the sort of personal development I want to describe in my personal statements. I'm only a 0L so please take my advice with a grain of salt.
  4. Some Scotiabank reps will allow a screenshot proving you've paid your deposit
  5. In second year I had straight A's but one D+. Managed to get into Osgoode, queens, Western, and ottawa (and I didn't try to explain it away in my apps).
  6. Nope. I went straight from in queue to being accepted last week.
  7. Got the email this morning. Went straight from being "in queue" (Since Nov. 20) to being accepted. 3.8 L2 / 3.61 OLSAS cGPA 160 / 161 / 159 LSAT General category
  8. Hatem Abouzeenni from Scotiabank will offer prime. The rate is not all that matters. I believe TD SLOC requires monthly repayments during school while Scotiabank allows you to start monthly payments 2 years after you start articling.
  9. Scotiabank offers prime
  10. I've talked to some big firm recruiters in Toronto and they advised me not to pick Ottawa over queens/Western because of class size, distance from Toronto (which can affect networking capabilities), and stronger tendency to give students poor grades. I know that the last reason tends to spark heated debate but hey, if you get straight B'/A's in a school where C's and D's are "not uncommon" (as some recruiters put it) that will probably look great on you.
  11. Talk to Hatem Abouzeenni from Scotiabank. He's based on in London but can set up SLOC remotely and Scotiabank has much better options than TD at the moment
  12. Can somebody tell me what Lianne is lol
  13. Responded to your Western post as well but I got into Ottawa last week with similar L2 and LSAT.
  14. I would say pretty good chances. Although I had higher CGPA, I got in during January with similar L2 and LSAT.
