I was just wondering if anyone has received an email this morning regarding Osgoode Chambers? When I spoke to someone from York Apartments they said offers should be going out June 3rd and that they would be emailed.

Thanks

When did you apply to chambers. I think they told me the offers going out today were for those who applied in March.

Yea I've heard this from a few other applicants as well. I only applied at the beginning of May so I'm quite nervous.

I hope this isn't an indication of how Osgoode/York's administration is 😅

I applied on March 11th and I was told that they would start sending out offer letters today but I haven't received any news other than that!

I applied in early may and I'm worried about getting a spot. I called them to ask about my chances and they were not very comforting 😅

Exact same situation. No clue where I'll live if not for Oz. It was sorta a  big reason why I picked Osgoode (not the only of course)

I applied very end of April, and I just got my spot in Passy! 

Good to hear. I applied May 7th so I'm nervous maybe that was too late, but end of April is comforting.

Yeah, I was very close to the end, I think April 28 was the day I applied, so you're not far off from me.  Good luck :-)

While this is anecdotal, my experience has been that Osgoode administration is relatively good. York’s administration is nightmarish.

Osgoode's relationship with York is like having a Rolls Royce engine in a 1996 Toyota Camry

A Camry is more reliable.

Oh no, I mean York is far less reliable than a Camry.

    • If they do, that's an anomaly.  Full course load is five per semester, that's the norm. Each university sets their own policy for full-time status and it varies. Queen's may be more accepting than other schools of four course semesters but, technically, that isn't the standard  definition at Canadian schools for undergrad of a full course load. 
    • I do believe that Queen's considers 4 courses per semester a full course load.
    • I don't see a lot of UofC Associates or Articling Students in Toronto at all, but there's certainly Windsor grads at every large firm. I also wouldn't place my hopes on getting into Big Law in Calgary and then lateraling over either - that's a lot of steps that have to go correctly. Getting Calgary BigLaw isn't a lay-up in and of itself. I would say go to Windsor and network, get good summaries and work your butt off in 1L and try to get grades in the top quarter of your class. 
    • Bit of an odd-duck here.    B2: 78% LSAT: 157 (one write) Sask Connection: Step-father is ex-law lecturer at UofS and Queen’s Bench and I served as president of the University of Regina Student’ Union for two elected terms.    Will these connection items help??
    • hey thanks! this is a good perspective. yeah I am open to biglaw in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto, but ideally would like to end up in Toronto. I know about Windsor having low placement rates, so I guess my question is whether to risk the low placement rate but be in Ontario, or risk being out of province but have the Calgary market open to me. I don't really want to stay in Calgary longer than I have to.
