  1. What date does it say for when your applications were last evaluated? Mine says November 11th 😐
  2. What were your ECs and everything like? Thanks!
  3. I just looked over all the TO firms and their OCI schools list on NALP, and Ryerson is not on any of them. Does anyone know if Ryerson is participating in OCIs? Not that it really matters I guess as its two blocks away from the firms but it's good to know
  4. Hey guys, can any current RYE 1Ls comment on: How do you like RYE so far? If you had to do first year over again, would you choose somewhere else you've gotten into? How has career services been? What are the plans to compensate for a new school reputation/lack of alumni? Thanks!
  5. When you take into account the ancillary fees there's not much of a difference in tuition alone
  6. Sorry, backed up as in sponsored scholarships, not sure about other ways they may have backed RYE up.
  7. Hey guys! I'm between two schools right now. Ottawa I know is an established school, but I'm almost leaning more towards Ryerson for the following reasons: IPC: Yes I know it's not the holy grail, but I agree with others that having extra experience is always a positive and a potential interview talking point Third-year placement: Again, I like how there is extra experience at a firm and can lead to a lot of networking opportunities Articling is not necessary: I understand that having the IPC is substituted for an articling position, and I also understand that I will still have to most likely article anyways. Though it almost takes the pressure off of being required to find an articling position. The practicing co-professors for each course are a great outlet for networking and learning through actually practicing lawyers. Not to mention the actual professors and their awesome backgrounds and experience. The school, although new, is actually backed up by many big firms in Toronto. Which helps ease (a little) of the placement bias of the old school vs new school I have read through the many cons, but I almost feel like the pros still outweigh it. I know Ottawa is established and everything, but I almost feel like because they are so established, how much practical experience will I be getting? I've heard from many graduates that they felt very unprepared while starting their placements/articling year which I understand will probably be me even if I go to RYE. Also, how much help is an established alumni network compared to your own personal network? I.e. connections you've made through placements. If anyone can constructively help me out with my pros and cons list that would be great, thanks in advance!!
  8. I got IN, can't believe I'm posting this literally right after starting a chance thread LOL. I can only see it on OLSAS. Grades are on a 4.0 except my CGPA is OLSAS scale CGPA: 3.28 B20: 3.85 L2/B2: 3.7 LSAT: 153, 153 (October), 160 (January, though it's not up on OLSAS, so don't think it was a factor) Great references, EC's are well rounded and lots of leadership positions. Good luck to everyone else!!
  9. LSAT up from 153 in October, ECs are really good (diverse + lots of leadership positions, volunteering, sports), great references, PS I'm assuming was average. Visible minority and military child so I moved around a lot (both talked about in my PS). Thanks in advance!

  11. LSAT up from 153 in October, ECs are really good (diverse + lots of leadership positions, volunteering, sports), great references, PS I'm assuming was average. A lot of Queen's Alumni in the family which I mentioned In case it gave me a boost.
  12. Can anyone tell me how deferrals work? I did look on their website but I'm still confused on how you can qualify for a deferral, how many they can give out, etc. Also, I noticed in previous threads people are saying they got in from the deferral list. I thought getting deferred meant you have a guaranteed spot in the upcoming fall semester? Thanks for the help!
  13. Here is a great link from LSAC where they compiled all the important info for each law school: https://www.lsac.org/choosing-law-school/find-law-school/canadian-law-schools For most of them they list things like the schools history, focus areas, and tuition!
