Access all the SLOC at once possible?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I was on call with representatives from TD, Scotia, CIBC, and RBC for SLOC.

It seems most of the banks allow access to a fragment of the maximum eligible funding. If I'm eligible for 135K then they only let me take like amount that covers tuition and living expenses which would be like 1/3 per academic year;. However RBC seems to be an exception where the representative told me that it allows one to access the eligible maximum amount immediately at any given time. Could someone confirm is this is true? Also, are there any other banks that allow this?

At Scotiabank you can access as much of the 130K as you want once you reach third year with a grace period up to two years after you finish articling. Scotiabank is by far the best line of credit out there imo. They also have no limits on the uses from what my rep told me, including a mortgage down payment when you are two years out. 

Edit: To add, I think it is prorated access to the funds until third year.

    • Fwiw, I had 4 Ws sprinkled throughout my undergrad (minor hopped). I didn't explain them at all when I was admitted to McGill back in the day.  Re: everyone else surprised by other stats. McGill is not just a numbers school. CV, references and letter of intent are all very important. 
    • JY from 7Sage makes the argument that, if the LSAT is important to you, you will do this. He is aware his schedule is more demanding than other study programs. If you cannot do a 34 hour per week study schedule, he would probably suggest taking more months to complete the program. Waiting until next summer to write the LSAT is not out of the question from this point of view, not is waiting until the summer of 2023! I, myself, am in your shoes. I agree with JY in theory, but in reality, I skimped massively on my study time. I am now waiting to get accepted to a law school with an LSAT below 160. I believe I would have a higher LSAT is I had done what JY told me, but I could not get the time off work. 
    • Yes? You're supposed to. If you're from out of province just have your school send it to OLSAS. If you're from ON then I think there's a way you request via OLSAS itself
    • Hello,  I was recently admitted to law school for Fall 2021. I am curious about what law students do in the summers between semesters. Is it typical or expected that you find an internship after your first year? Are there any organizations or businesses in BC or Alberta that regularly offer summer internships or work opportunities for current law students? Is there anything I can do in the months between now and when classes start to improve my chances of getting law related summer work? Thank you for the advice. 
    • My university just made our Fall 2020 grades "official". Is there a way to send them to Ontario schools so they can factor into GPA calculations? Thanks.
