Question regarding entrance scholarships

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

Does anyone know what the process is in order to be considered for entrance scholarships? I made a provisional acceptance of my offer to Osgoode but I realized I didn't fill out any financial statement when I submitted my application in the fall, which I'm currently beating myself up over. 

I've emailed admissions and am waiting to hear back but I was wondering if anyone on here has experience with this. Thank you for any and all advice!

The financial statement is to determine whether you’ll likely be eligible for bursaries. 
 

Scholarships are entirely merit based. There is no application process for scholarships. Notice for the larger scholarships go out early on and other scholarships go out throughout the cycle.

The Osgoode people should be pretty lenient with you. I didn't fill out the financial statement before I applied either but once I was offered admission and emailed them about it, they let me fill it out and send it to them.

Per the admissions staff, most of the Osgoode entrance scholarships have a soft requirement for some financial need, and not having the financial aid form on file with a bare minimum level of financial need automatically disqualifies you for such awards. That said, they also said anyone in OP's position can email them to fill it out late (at the risk of many awards already being awarded to others).

    • Thanks for the input! The U of T ones are really throwing me off because they all seem to tell these grand stories. While I do have actually a similar story to one of those candidates, U of T is not a school I'm applying to, and the prompts for the schools I am don't really say much about what they're looking for. They seem very succinct and to the point and I don't know how much I'm supposed to let my creativity flow on these things! I mean it's law school, we aren't meant to be creative right??
    • How much can an articling student and lawyer make in Saskatoon? I can’t find any information about this. any articling students here? What is your pay? how much do you expect to make in 5 years?
    • This will become a lot clearer after first semester exams. Nearly everyone changes their strategy going into second semester. For the most part, people typically do way too much and realize doing their 120 page constitutional readings every single class did not materialize into much on the exam. On the other hand, you'll find that some of your habits did contribute to a better exam answer and you will focus more on those. Unfortunately, it's not a one-size-fits-all approach so there isn't really a magic formula to this. Some people will find doing detailed readings more helpful in building their understanding, while others will find that spending more time synthesizing the information and doing practice tests/hypotheticals is more important. To each their own.
    • I keep finding myself focusing on the literal text, rather than why I'm reading a particular case. Wrapping my head around the reasoning behind having a self-service pharmacy was more difficult than the issues re: offer/acceptance.  Yes, they were technically over the counter drugs. But they also contained codeine. If my elementary school Lil Wayne phase taught me anything, that can be some serious stuff! What really felt crazy was the signup for Student Legal Services. I feel like the average person who's frequently at odds with the law knows more about criminal law than I do. I know I can only deal with relatively minor matters and have proper supervision, but still! 
    • Whenever the prof asks a question, answer it. As long as you're right, you'll be fine.
