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.

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?

    • Your conclusion is essentially contradicted by your story. All I got from that story was it is easier to get an A at Osgoode than UNB. 
    • And I just saw that you decided, haha. Excellent choice! 
    • UVic is perfect for what you are interested in! Very indigenous focused even if you aren't a JD/JID (which seems like an amazing program as well). There is a very active environmental law club here as well as a legal clinic. UVic also has some of the leading professors in indigenous law (John Borrows, Val Napoleon + a lot of other fantastic profs). Tuition is MUCH cheaper here too, which more than offsets the cost of living. I was offered a $20K scholarship to go to Western and it was still way cheaper to go to UVic sans scholarship. Most of my tuition this year was covered by bursaries anyways. Everyone is very collegial here, midterms are help-not-hurt, and the weather is amazing for most of the year. UVic also has a great Co-op program with lots of cool job placements that you can get into right off your first year.  In terms of negatives: Victoria is expensive (and possibly inconvenient geographically). But it is a fun place to live and the lower tuition offsets things significantly.  I obviously haven't gone to Osgoode, but the idea that any school in Canada is more prestigious is nonsense IMO. Employers are more interested in your personal background than which school you went to. The only difference between an Osgoode grad and a UVic grad at the end of the day is that Osgoode is probably out an extra $50-70K for the same degree.  With your LSAT score the biggest problem you should have is which scholarships to turn down!
    • I am with CIBC for about 7 years now, and my father was with them for close to 15 years. So, I thought I'd see what they offered for student loans. My credit score is above average. So, it isn't terrible.     Last month, I went to talk to CIBC about securing a PSLOC. The loan officer wasn't rude per se, but how should I put it? They were the opposite of obsequious. They were very stern, and it felt like they could care less if they got my business or not.  They offered prime plus 1%, I tried negotiating on the rate but they wouldn't budge. They required a cosigner. They wanted copies of mine and my father's tax returns and pay stubs before they give any more details about the LOC. Details like how much I'd get approved for.  Perhaps the person I talked to wasn't experienced with PSLOCs or it was just a bad apple, but I just walked out when they wouldn't give me more info.  I spoke with RBC the week after, and they offered prime plus 0.5% with no payment required on the principal until 2 years after graduation. I believe they said they could approve up to 85k. Also, that we can do an application without cosigner, and if it comes back negative then we do one with cosigner. They were very cordial and accommodating. I spoke with Scotia after that and they offered everything RBC did but better. They offered prime plus 0%. The same no principal payments until 2 years after graduation. They could approve up to 135k. The same deal with the cosigner that RBC said. They sweetened the deal further by offering a 10k credit card on top            I wanted to speak with TD after that, but Scotia won me over, so I didn't even bother meeting with TD.   Also, keep in mind, I haven't submitted the application yet. I am just in the initial phase of doing research and collecting info. These are just my experiences with interacting with these 3 banks regarding a PSLOC. I am still waiting on one more university to decide where I want to go before I file an application. 
    • law schools want at the latest, a january score, if you've applied that cycle. the notorious windsor only takes up until the november lsat yup, that's also enough time to study good luck man
