  1. I won’t be able to attend the online Q&A today because they decided to make it not compatible with mobile and ill be at work. Can anyone fill me in on any important information they provide?
  2. I think it took me like a week between getting accepted and then going in person to sign the paperwork
  3. They let me split the limit 5k each between the visa and the Amex. Both annual fees are waived. I got everything set up around 2 months ago edit: you also get both of the sign up rewards bonuses if you get both cards. I got $500 worth of points for spending 1k on each card in the first 3 months.
  4. Apparently they are hosting another Q&A on June 17 and they said they would answer questions about the delivery of first year. It’s quite a bit away from now, but I’m assuming that’s when we’re going to get proper details
  5. I am almost certainly living in OC unless 1L is strictly online. Personally, I need to move anyways because theres no way I’m going to be living at home during law school (I am right now due to covid). There isn’t really anywhere else desirable to live that I can get a 1 bedroom apartment for $1200 a month with utilities. And I’ll also be able to interact with other students in OC so I’ll still be able to make friends with law students. On top of that, if winter semester is more normal I’ll already be living on campus where I want to be. The York campus is actually pretty nice despite being in a bad neighbourhood, I have no problem enjoying the campus to myself if not many people are there
  6. Mine just says “paid online” on OASIS.
  7. No it’s actually not a magic formula believe it or not. You calculate your converted gpa for each class, add them up, and divide by the total number of classes. That gives you your cumulative gpa. It’s basic math
  8. I didn’t get accepted because the rest of my application was week (references, ECs, personal statements). After improving to a 165 LSAT, I was admitted to UBC, osgoode, western, and queens this year almost all in the very first round of offers. Feel free to PM me if you want more details
  9. Yeah all my experience is with Ontario schools. I’m by no means an expert my perspective is coming from getting waitlisted at western and osgoode last year with a 3.72cgpa, 3.79 L2 and 162 lsat (this was decently above the medians last year for both schools) and then doing lots of personal reflection into why. Plus reading dozens of accepted threads with people getting admitted with stats much below the medians in the general category. My main objective is to get people to get rid of the faulty assumption (like I had) that youre gunna be accepted forsure if you meet both medians
  10. My mistake. I’m not sure about next year. All I can tell you is I haven’t received a dime yet with 3.72 OLSAS cgpa and 165 lsat.
  11. I was referring to people admitted holistically through the general category. In my limited experience being around this cycle and last, it looks like there are many students with less competitive stats and more competitive work experience/ECs admitted across schools in Ontario.
  12. From my understanding all of the large scholarships went out very early in the year and if anything still hasn't been allocated, it’s likely not that much money.
