Bursary Amounts in Ontario Law Schools

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I applied to law schools in Ontario this cycle (uoft, oz, western, queens, ottawa). I will be most likely deciding on which one (assuming I get in), based on how much financial aid I will get and to minimize my debt as much as possible. 

I know uoft's financial aid is capped at 16,300/year and oz is capped at 15,000 excluding scholarships.

Would anybody be able to provide numbers of how much they got at western, queens and ottawa?

Also, how to overall minimize law school debt as much as possible would be appreciated.  

Thanks

I wish the schools would give a clearer sense of how much a typical student gets. I've applied to 9 schools and cost is a major factor. I have a spreadsheet with all the schools ranked by tuition cost, but what good is knowing the tuition without knowing what type of bursary, if any, one is likely to get?

I guess at least for people who get multiple acceptances,  they may be able to wait and see what bursaries they're offered before accepting an offer.

    • I know! Using the term, "a fancy life," was my joke, friend!! Why so serious? 
    • Accepted on RAMSS today at 4:30pm!  I guess you can say I’m shook. Very shook..   Cumulative average from my university: 89.9%  OLSAS GPA: 3.85  B2: 3.96 LSAT: 154, 155 general category, Ontario resident.  good luck everyone  
    • Hey! So I've recently been narrowing down on my choices for law school and I realize that Ryerson now has a law school. I was really excited as it is close to home and would be perfect if I get admitted. However, I'm a bit discouraged because I understand, from their website, that their approach is more business/technology based - whilst I took double majors in Political Science and Criminology (I know...typical). I mean, their approach is very appealing to me - I love the aspect of merging business and technology with law, but do I even bother applying to Ryerson then? I have no knowledge related to their approach Do you think those with undergraduate programs within the business field would have greater priority than me? Also, the interview aspect is throwing me off as well. Anyone whose done an interview for Ryerson Law, could you perhaps lend me some advice in terms of what to expect? 
    • Good points. I'll for sure look out for potential roommates as more acceptances role out.  Worst case I'll do rez in first year, and once I meet more people in 1L it will be easier to find a place off campus. Thanks for the advice!
    • A law degree is no guaranteed ticket to a "fancy" life. There a chance you could have even made more/as much with your MA degrees. Not to mention another 3 years of lost income.
