Once we’ve accepted the offer on OLSAS and paid the deposit, is there anything else we need to do?

Nope. You're good to go! You're only tasked with enjoying your summer at this point!

The lack of communication from Osgoode is a bit unsettling.

Well, welcome day is on June 18th, then Orientation in August.   They'll contact us about sections sometime in July, what else would you expect to hear from them in the meantime?

Maybe I'm just being paranoid.

No I hear you, I feel the same way, like there's something I ought to be doing right now.  I just don't reasonably know what I'd expect them to say to me between now and the upcoming events. Like,

"Hey, just checking in.  Thought we'd let you know we still think you're cool.  See you in June. -Osgoode"

But seriously, one thing that would be nice would be an email confirmation of receiving the deposit.

Any idea on what kind of dress code exists for the June welcome day?

I guess it consists  of a panel of former alumni etc that give us their expierence , presentations by the finaincial services etc, right?

From what I recall it's "casual " ... except that everyone dressed up a little bit. So somewhere between business casual and casual?

Like, don't wear a tie. If you want to be fancy, you can wear some sort of casual blazer + collared shirt.

Where does one see the information regarding the welcome day? Did you receive an email?

I was trippin about the deposit too. Depending on your method of shipment, you can track it. So start there. Otherwise, wait like a week from the time you mailed it and then either email or call admissions. They'll let you know if they got it, and if they did, oasis will update about a day or two later and next to 'deposit' it'll say 'paid'

The link to RSVP was in my Acceptance email.   If you didn't receive it send admissions a quick email for the signup link.  It's June 18th

My acceptance email says welcome day was on february 22. If they changed the date, I never got a follow-up email. Anyways, I'm outside Ontario and will be unable to attend.

My bad, it's called "Summer Welcome Day."  Maybe it's just for us lowly late-cycle admittees :P

This is what I got in my acceptance email:

Quote

The Osgoode Hall Law School Alumni Association invites you to attend our
Summer Welcome Day on Monday, June 18 at 5:30 pm.  This reception provides
the unique opportunity to meet and mingle with Osgoode alumni and hear from
Osgoode faculty, staff and students about Osgoode's distinguished history
and bright future.

Hi,

I was accepted a while back by recently moved and believe I must have misplaced the acceptance package with the tuition remittance form. I know I need to send a money order for $450, but the PDF says to refer to the remittance form. Would anyone be able to summarize the important info on the form(I.e. Where to put name or student number) or have a copy of it perhaps?

Thanks!

    • If the policy position is in the same field, it would seem to be relevant experience and not just a "filler" position. I have no relative experience for this question, but would imagine the transfer from policy back to law would become more problematic the longer you held the policy position, but shouldn't be too problematic early on (and "I took an available position in my area, but am interested in moving back into law" is a decent sales pitch if you take a later job interview). For example, if you did the policy job for 1 year, then went to move back to a firm, your "lost time" is less as you've hopefully gotten the relevant exposure to the law, but aren't senior enough that there's an issue in learning to be an associate (ie. handling grunt work). It may even be beneficial experience as it adds a different prospective to the problems. However, 5 years of policy before moving back? Might be a different story, as you are more closely aligned with a 2-3yr associate in realm of associate tasks you are familiar with, but probably don't want to be treated like an intro associate task-wise (all speculating, depends entirely on both policy experience and the tasks your transfer back into). In short, you're not forever excluded from looking for openings while holding the policy job, so if it's of potential interest this may be a "FT is better than contract" conclusion. And who knows, maybe you love the policy job?
    • Nope no notification of a waitlist position over here
    • LSAT 165 cGPA (per olsas) 3.52 I'm also an international applicant with access considerations. I interviewed on monday and my OASIS was updated today to say that I am in the wait pool
    • Can you get on to any litigation files as part of the firm's family law practice? It sounds to me like building up a base of litigation experience - in whatever field - would be an asset to getting the kinds of jobs you want. Also, if the 'business law' area includes any employment law, there may be a potential path to human rights law through there.
    • Thank you so much. This is such a thorough and easy to understand response.
