Dean's open house

Recommended Posts

I would agree with the posts above as well! A great event whether you are someone who has made up your mind, or if you are still weighing options. 

The mixer definitely felt initially overwhelming, as I am not necessarily used to these types of events. That being said, all of the current students were absolutely lovely and helped create such a welcome atmosphere. They went out of their way to initiate conversation with me when they saw the uncertainty. They also gave a lot of good advice on how to get connected with others and make the most of the law school experience. 

I am really happy I went, and I look forward to getting more comfortable at networking!

I know this was super long ago, but were you able to bring anyone (e.g., parent)?

I am sorry, but we cannot accommodate plus ones for the Dean's Open House.

I know this is an old post but I'm flying in from 21-24 for the event and to get more familiar with Calgary. If anyone else will be around on the other days and wants to do anything let me know. 

 

@UofC Admissions Any recommendations for other things future students should do at UofC or in the area?

I am local and would be down to grab a drink or something on one of those nights and show you some spots.

I am from Vancouver and I am still deciding whether or not I will fly in for the event. Definitely want to see the city but I haven't decided between UoA and UoC yet. Would love to meet you guys if I fly in!

Are there events like this later in the year? I'm still in school and unlikely to attend

If people are arriving the day of the event I would be more then happy to pick you up from the airport and go to the event together. I live somewhat near the airport, so it would hardly be out of the way and save you an expensive taxi ride ;)

Did you guys receive an email about the event? I’ve received an offer but I didn’t get an email about the open house 

Ya, I got it a few days ago. Maybe wait a day or two if you just received your offer and then reach out to admissions if you haven’t heard by then?

    • Hello, I was recently admitted to Osgoode and am looking to start applying for an apartment in Assiniboine or the Osgoode Chambers as soon as possible given the limited number of 1 bedroom apartment units. I firmly accepted the offer two days ago as Osgoode is my dream law school (I seriously feel so fortunate even now), and my offer response status on OASIS was updated to "accepted" I am assuming to indicate Osgoode has processed my firm acceptance on OLSAS. Now, in my e-mail offer package sent to me by Vicky, the admissions coordinator, was a student number; this student number was the same one as my current York university student number as I am finishing up my undergraduate at York at this point in time. When I follow the housing application through for newly admitted applicants I see on the York "MyFile" page my admittance into Osgoode has been confirmed, though I cannot select the "York University Apartment Lease Term" option in the the housing application portal that extends from the "MyFile" page; as in, the option isn't there at all. I haven't received the official offer letter in the mail yet, will that contain a different student number for me to use than the one currently in my online offer package sent to me by the admissions coordinator? Or, is this simply a file processing matter and the option will be available to me at a later date? I see on my OASIS page a message at the bottom that says "stay tuned for further information about your new passport York account and Osgoode student email"- I also considered my issue is related to that. Thank you in advance anyone who replies and can provide clarifying information about this process  
    • Does anybody know what the fb group is called?
    • Can someone recommend some good neighbourhoods and apartment complexes to look into? Do most law students live alone or in groups? I’d figure grad students wouldn’t live in a house with undergrad frat boys lol   Also, if anyone is looking for a clean, serious and respectful housemate next year, my DMs are open 😝
    • hi got no dog in this fight or anything but the subject matter caught my attention, so this is just an FYI sorta: i'm coming from a software background and your reluctance to treat this as being an understandable, human error because the root cause might be a software bug is kind of suspect logic (imo, sorry!) despite those debugging courses, and despite even rigorous bug testing in the development process (fantastical case, very seldom the reality in my experience working in a variety of orgs. and domains), it is an inevitability that bugs slip through the cracks, and the more obscure they are the easier they slip, and sometimes they are found in a closed-source library that you've imported, etc. so really, as far as the end-user goes, he or she may have done some innocent thing and triggered a very obscure bug resulting in the erroneous email (okay sure, kind of a convenient scenario but still very possible) best of luck and i hope it gets resolved in your favour! imma peace out nowwwwwww 😬 edit: don't get me wrong, i'd be so upset if i got this email lol... but i mean antagonizing the institution you're trying to join seems like a bad way to go either way
    • Hi folks,  I was curious what current law students at Allard are paying for rent and whether it might be better to live on campus. Ideally I'd like to live in a studio but one to two roomates wouldn't be the biggest deal in the world. The most important thing to me is proximity to campus.  Thanks in advance!
