  1. Thanks so much for this insight. I hear you, it is somewhere new but I guess not the most glamourous. Have you already started at Osgoode or this will be your fist year? I found out about the entrance scholarship through a recent email- about a week ago. It had a letter attached with the details.
  2. Thanks so much PMing right now.
  3. Yes, such great clinics. Thanks so much for this thoughtful response.
  4. Can I ask why you say that. Just trying to gather as much info as possible.
  5. I appreciate that feedforward. I am confident enough with my reading skills but I hear you especially in terms of the grappling part. It would be extra work, albeit work I enjoy, really getting through French content.
  6. Hi folks. I have been reading through these forums and everyone is so helpful and generous with their opinions and knowledge. I’m hoping for some last-minute insight. Not sure what kind of law I want to practice but right now I know I have an interest in social justice-ish work; perhaps criminal, refugee, family. Coming from an arts background I am also interested in IP. April 1st deadline is hours away and I cannot make a final decision although I have narrowed it down to two: Osgoode: My alma mater which has me feeling comforted by the familiarity but also wanting to go somewhere new Closer to home 1.5 hours I like Toronto and the potential commute doesn’t bother me (did it from DT for 4 years without the new subway extension). I also would not mind living close to York to cut costs. I have been offered a $10 000 renewable scholarship; I am hoping to further offset tuition with bursaries The school seems to have a lot of resources; I am intrigued by their experiential learning and mooting opportunities, broad offering of courses Ottawa Interested to live in a new city. Although I have lived abroad so I have had that experience. Farther from home 5.5 hours Interested in taking a few courses in French; I am proficient in French through French Immersion and undergrad courses. I feel this could give me an edge in the job market and is my main draw to Ottawa though I am not sure if taking a few courses will make me competitive or bilingual enough for bilingual positions. Hefty tuition- not as hefty as Oz but I have not been offered a scholarship at this point although I do hope to receive some bursary Would really appreciate your thoughts and feedforward
  7. Oo hard decision! I think you have gotten some great advice. If cost of law school is a factor to you, go for that scholarship at Dalhousie. It will be so beautiful out East. Their program looks awesome, the marine law and social justice type programs look great. I am making a similar decision between Ottawa and Osgoode. Osgoode seems have great facilities and a wide range of experiential learning opportunities. York is my Alma mater but a part of me wants to try somewhere new making Ottawa more intriguing plus it would give me a chance to take some courses in French. Ottawa is farther from home and a larger class size. Osgoode boasted they give out 3.5 million annually which will lower the sticker price which $7000 more per year than Ottawa. Great post and great responses. Thanks everyone and best wishes.
