Why did you pick UofT over Osgoode?

I won't careless why she decided to go where.

I want to point out that U of T costs more than OZ even after Bursaries.  

I don't know about this. I know people who did receive more from U of T in financial aid than they would at Osgoode. In most cases, these students came from relatively well-off backgrounds. Osgoode tends to be more generous to mature students, low-income students, single parents, and students with a significant amount of prior debt. A lot of U of T students come from relatively affluent backgrounds where they would receive next to nothing at Osgoode. It's not like everyone or even most people at Oz are getting the larger 10k, 20k, 25k bursaries.

Preach. I found Osgoode’s purse strings to be tight lol. Glad I went there. Loved my time there (strike and all) but the bursaries I received weren’t the greatest

    • Update: People have been accepted with worse stats than me at this point...
    • Has anyone out there gone to meet with Dean Holloway for anything? If so, what for? I've been summoned for a chat and I don't know what to expect. I'm sure it's nothing bad but the uncertainty is doing nothing good for my imagination. He seems like the kind of guy who genuinely likes chatting with students so maybe something along those lines? 
    • Depends a lot on where you want to study. I only know about Ontario so here’s info on that region: You would apply to all Ontario schools through OLSAS, a centralized application portal that gathers materials and sends them to the schools. Applications are normally due within the first days of November, the year before you apply. So, November 2019 if you want to start in 2020. Applications will open in late August each year, but you can search the net for last year’s info, which should be very accurate.  There used to be only 3 LSAT dates per year- June, September/October, and January. On your OLSAS application, you must indicate which tests you have already written, and which you intend to write. Many schools would accept any test date, but might put off evaluating your file if you intended to re-write. Some would not look at the January score. It is my understanding that there are many more test dates now. You’d have to check each schools website, but I’d say the general rule applies- for admittance during the 2019-2 cycle, you’d have to write the test before February 2020.
