  1. Who can say..? The optimist in me thinks maybe they're going to offer small bursaries to those who have indicated some degree of financial need. The much louder pessimist in me thinks that those who don't need financial assistance (definitely not me) are the safer bet for them to give an offer of admission. All I know is that I'm still interested, and responded honestly to their questions.
  2. I believe mistakes can be corrected by uploading a paper copy of the application with the corrected section filled out, as well as a letter explaining what needs to be corrected. Go to your application, click 'view documents & print/upload' under next steps, then click 'go to optional uploads'. Problem is that when you try to download the paper application, it says it's not available and to check back late June. I have to correct mine too, but we may just have to wait at this point.
  3. Congrats, friend! I was also notified this morning about a fairly substantial entrance scholarship, but the Negative Nancy in me is saying it could've been a typo. I emailed to confirm.
  4. Residence on campus? No. I worked in residence all through undergrad and am done with that environment. I'm going to be looking for a studio or 1 bedroom apartment whether it's for September or January.
  5. That is not exactly what the announcement said. It said that full in-person instruction would not resume, except for programs like medicine and dentistry which require a much greater degree of experiential learning. There is a chance that certain courses/components of courses could be in person. I personally think that chance is pretty slim, especially in light of the Dean's most recent e-mail saying our physical presence would not be required in the fall. I suppose Schulich could decide to go back on that if things improve substantially in the coming months, but I'm not as optimistic as some. As far as how people are feeling? Everyone is pretty bummed about the prospect of online courses, but I think that goes for all law schools. I can tell you that a lot of people I am acquainted with, who have accepted their offers, are going to be moving to Halifax regardless of any further developments. Others, myself included, are waiting for more details before we decide to drop $5,000+ on living expenses for the fall -- though we do seem to be the minority. I'm not aware of anyone who has declined their offer solely because of online classes, though this announcement was only just made today so it may be too early to know for sure.
  6. Forgive my ignorance, but LSC?
  7. I honestly can't remember when I applied in past years. They didn't give a specific date in May, so I'm waiting until June 1st before I grab my pitchfork.
  8. Depends what your intended use is. I'd say it's more than serviceable for reading/writing. I'm coming from having used a 32" TV as a monitor, which was fine.. just a bit fuzzy, so anything smaller than that is going to look better than I'm used to. The screen splitting is a pretty great feature. Gaming on the other hand, if you intend to do any? It's not great.
  9. Letter from the Dean at Schulich seems to echo Ottawa's announcement, though I'm not aware of any public update on Dal's website. Basically, whatever can reasonably and safely be done in person, will be done. But that your physical presence in Halifax won't be required in the fall.
  10. Hmm, I always thought it was just screen mirroring but I guess I was wrong. The more you know! Their whole ecosystem is so well integrated, gotta give them credit. I agree with you though; a true monitor would be the better option. Not entirely convinced how much a 10 inch screen would really increase productivity, and you're looking at $1300 or more to get the 13" iPad Pro. There are so many ways that money could be better spent. I myself am going to try modding my 14 year old monitor, for use in portrait mode, before I commit to spending any money. It sits around collecting dust anyway, so no harm if I break it!
  11. My opinion is that they aren't worth the premium. Okay sure, the manufacturing process probably contributes to the high price tag, but what are you really getting out of a curved monitor? Your money would likely be better spent buying a cheaper FHD monitor, or buying a monitor in the $250-$300 range that has better specs all around (i.e. higher resolution, higher refresh rate, lower response time, etc..) but is flat. I've never looked closely at any tablet, but I wouldn't think they could function as true external monitors since they don't have video inputs. If you're concerned about portability and don't need the functionality of a tablet's independent operating system, check out some of ASUS' portable monitors. https://www.asus.com/ca-en/Monitors/Portable-Products/ Other brands might make a similar product too, this is just the one I am familiar with.
  12. Government of Ontario website says applications will open in May. When this month will that be? I have no idea. Here is the link. https://www.ontario.ca/page/osap-ontario-student-assistance-program
  13. What was the maximum amount that RBC was offering?
