If you go to MyOsgoode and click "schedules and timetables", they have them posted for fall 2018 and winter 2019. Hopefully we find out which section we're in soon!

What's faculty council and legal and lit? Do we have to attend those? I know L&L is the student government but why is it on the timetable?

It’s on the schedule so that no classes are scheduled then, in order to leave the time open for their meetings.  You only attend if you’re part of it.  If you’re not part of it, that time is free for lunch, etc.

Anyone know what the state and citizen at night is for? Gotta apply if you just would rather take it at night for 3 hours as opposed to throughout the week?

 

Also I just got an email from housing re: chambers. I put 1 bedroom as my first choice but they said they could only offer me the bachelor (not the 'studio' large bachelor)

I'm still waiting to hear back and I also had the 1 bedroom as my first choice. Did they explain why they couldn't offer you a 1 bedroom?

No! This was the email:

Hello,

Thank you for your application to the York Apartments. Unfortunately, we could not accommodate your 1st choice of a 1-bedroom apartment at Osgoode Chambers.  We can offer you a furnished bachelor apartment at Osgoode Chambers.  The rental rate is $ 972 per month.  Move-ins are now arranged for the 1st and 15th of each month throughout the year.  Please confirm if this alternative option is suitable by Friday, July 6th .

I'm somewhat concerned since I haven't even heard back yet. Are you going to take the bachelor?

I'd go ahead and shoot them email by tmw if you haven't heard. Did you firm accept osgoode and apply for chambers by June 15th though? 

Yeah I'm gonna take it. Will probably look elsewhere for 2nd and 3rd year though.

Yes I did everything before the deadline. I'll probably call tomorrow just to see what's going on with my housing application.

Heard this was an alternative time slot for those who had commitments they couldn’t miss during the day

I got the same email. What concerns me is that it mentions "move-in are arranged for 1st and 15th". I don't recall they have said anything on the webpage. I am somehow under the impression that you can move in as long as you have checked in. I wonder whether this means that if I arrive on the 16th, I have to wait until the 1st of the next month (which sounds totally unreasonable but that's indeed my first impression when reading this). Or it can mean that I can nevertheless move in on the 16th but I will be charged starting from the 15th. I have emailed back to ask about it. (Perhaps it's just me being dumb? )

I understood it as you could only move in on the 1st or the 15th. No idea though. Definitely ask.

I click on the suggested tab ( schedules and timetables) in myosgoode and all I see is upper year and first year but neither are hyperlinks to anything else

It’s also for clubs. Basically, all the clubs mainly do their scheduled activities (like speakers or panels) during the L&L and Student Caucus time slots.

Someone in the facebook group had the same issue. There's been a suggestion posted in that thread.

I'm having the same problem. If I'm logged into my account, all I see is upper year/first year. If I sign out, I'm able to see all the upper year/first year schedules. It's really strange!

Just an update- I e-mailed Osgoode's IT and they fixed it for me! If you're still having issues with it, e-mail them :)

We're officially in July. The slow and agonizing countdown to registration will soon be over. Just three more weeks now. Happy Canada day everyone.

    • No worries there. Most Oz students do their damned best to disassociate themselves with York whenever possible. They won't slip up. 
    • This is exactly my point on AI not being what the media says it is. The chances of lawyers getting replaced in our lifetime is pretty small.
    • I'm selling all of my Barbri materials that I used for the July 2018 exam. The materials are the same as those for the February 2019 exam (the covers of my books say July 2018/Feb 2019). I have all the materials included in the Barbri course, including the flashcards. I can also include some handouts that I printed (lecture notes, summaries, powerpoints for mini-lectures, study plan, and overviews). Everything is in good condition, as I barely highlighted or marked up any of the textbooks (except the lecture handouts, but they're useless unless they're filled out).  I'm willing to ship these wherever they need to go (we can negotiate on shipping), and I'm open to reasonable offers. PM me if you're interested
    • I won't claim I've read all the articles, but skimming the titles only puts them into the category of what I was saying before. It's buzz. And it's confusing the tool with the real work of a lawyer. If something automated actually killed thousands of parking tickets I guess that's real "law" in a way, but I can't believe it's more sophisticated than automating something simple that you can't pay a human being enough to care about doing for what it's worth. Again, there's a difference between automation and AI. I seriously don't think anyone has tried to grapple with my point about drafting. Do you realize how many people used to be employed simply to copy documents by hand? No one seriously imagines that word processing and photocopying killed a whole swath of the profession simply because students and junior lawyers don't sit all day copying contracts in longhand. The real work of this profession is creative and analytical. And that's before we even talk about the actual advocacy and human interaction. The day computers can do that, they can do damn near anything. EDIT: I've now read about the ticket-fighting "robot lawyer" and it's actually no more sophisticated than the SimpleTax program I used until recently. That is, it's a nice little choose-your-own adventure program, with the appropriate rules filled in, but to pretend it's AI is just absurd. It's no more AI than a DIY will kit.
