  1. I'm a 0L, so I can't speak to the actual student experience of either school, but I'll offer my opinion, because I also have offers from Osgoode and Dal and will most likely be choosing Oz. Like you, I'm not positive what area of law I want to practice, so I'm really attracted to the breadth of clinics and intensives offered by Osgoode. I haven't come across anything similar offered by Dal. I'm not necessarily interested in Bay Street, but it doesn't seem to me that Oz focuses on turning out corporate lawyers. For me, it comes down to the city. I'm from the east coast and have been living in Halifax for four years and I have never really liked it. There's not a whole lot going on. While I do have a really nice and affordable apartment right next to campus, I'm not committed to living on the east coast and would rather live and work in Toronto, and for me, the extra money/commute is worth the quality of life. I'm not trying to be dramatic, but that's just how much I dislike living in Halifax. Dalhousie isn't a bad school, by any means. I took their undergrad "Intro to law" course offered by the law school and was impressed with the building and the instruction, but I went to go visit Osgoode and their program just seemed like a better fit for me. The only thing that might sway me would be a big scholarship from Dal, and even then, I don't know if I'd accept.
  2. Does anybody have an idea as to how quickly the unfurnished ones go? I definitely want to live near campus for a while, but will be bringing the furnishings for my entire one-bedroom apartment.
  3. In on January 8! CGPA around 3.5 and L2 at 3.7. 156 highest LSAT. Glowing LOR's and good EC's, I have an unorthodox (and kind of wild) background story. Experience as a professional writer definitely helped to tell it in my PS. Filled out part B. Like TorontoJourno, I'm also thinking that my few years of journalism experience helped to offset the lackluster LSAT (also excited to meet another journo in the program!). Will be flying to Toronto for the event on the 21, looking forward to meeting some of you!
