  1. In 2019-2020, the Ancillary Fees were $1,308.62. I believe tuition was $18,287.66 - I guess it didn't go up this year. Not sure if that says anything about whether the Ancillary Fees will change this year.
  2. I also used the MyHomework app all throughout undergrad and plan to use it in law school as well. If you don't have the premium yet, it's $5-$6 and pays for itself over and over with the calendar syncing. When you have some free time, look deeper into the apps setting and check out some of the cool functionality it has. Some of my favourites include, the colour coding for classes, having class times as events in my google calendar, and the "filter by" functionality.
  3. I believe the general consensus on these forums re student loans is, provincial and federal loans and grants (OSAP in Ontario) are the way to begin and should be used first. This is primarily due to the fact that they offer an interest rate of 0.0% while you're in school and still a favourable one after you graduate. There is also no payment due while you're in school. Given that these loans and grants won't cover all of the average students cost, most of us still need to get a student line of credit from a bank to cover the difference or have other financing options. I've done the basic research on the big 5 banks in Canada so feel free to pm me if you have questions about rates, limits, options, etc.
  4. I would not reach out to the schools. As a general rule, it's not a good idea to unnecessarily bother schools with information they did not request. If a school prefers 4-year degrees, they will likely "count" your credits completed and that will be the indicator of how many "years" your program is intended to be completed in. As far as I know, there is no such way to indicate this on OLSAS.
  5. Others have said it but I'll reiterate - taking a victory lap/extra year shouldn't be taken off the table so hastily. At a minimum, I personally, wouldn't apply to graduate until you've solidified things and been accepted to law school or looked at other career options. Also, re your LSAT score, averaging 150 and aiming for 165 is a BIG stretch. Not impossible, but not an easy goal in for ~45 days(assuming the August test is the end of the month, which I believe it is). A final thing to consider is a masters program in a different area, since you mentioned you're not a big fan of your undergrad major. A masters program can easily boost your GPA and will generally help round you out as a candidate.
  6. Second this. Queen's is the better school and breaking/assigning/subleasing a lease isn't that big a deal. Also, you're far enough out that you should be able to "deal with" that lease contract without too much trouble.
  7. Where did you hear that it will be July 28th?
