Is it too early to apply for a PSLOC?

Recommended Posts

I got an acceptance in BC, although I am waiting on other schools and I am not 100% sure I want to go there, unless it’s my only option. I am waiting specifically on Ontario schools.

Can/should I apply for a PSLOC at Scotiabank right now? Can I even apply with only one acceptance letter / offer that I haven’t even accepted yet? Or do I need to wait until I am 100% set on a school and accept an offer? I am just worried if I apply based on this BC acceptance and I get an acceptance in ON, whether I would have to make another application again for a PSLOC. 
 

thanks!

I spoke to a scotia rep a week ago who told me I can apply with an acceptance to any school and they can always change that school later on. Otherwise, the rep also told me that the application is good for 6 months, so if that timeline passes I'm guessing you would have to re-apply again. 

 

But I am just relaying the information as I understood it.. it would be best for you to speak to a rep directly. 

Here is a link to a list or reps you could contact.

Thank you so much! That helps a lot. For sure in 6 months I’ll know where I’m going, so if I apply now I should be good. I am seeing a scotiabank representative near my condo next week - I didn’t use any of them on that list, I hope that okay. 
 

anyone else talked to a rep recently?

Is there a reason to apply this early? You likely won't have access to the funds until you can show that you are enrolled at a particular school.

No reason really, I just want to be ready. I guess it’s all the excitement too. Just don’t want to have to worry about it later, especially since I owe some money now and need to know how that’s going to affect me getting a PSLOC.

    • Something important to remember is that as a lawyer, your reputation is everything. You start building this reputation as soon as you enter law school, and you should get used to considering how your actions, words, and commitments during law school may reflect on your eventual reputation as an lawyer. How the above relates to working during law school, is that if you choose to do so, you should be prepared to be open and ready to explain how your work commitment affects you, and why it may limit your ability to participate fulsomely in law school life at times. For example, you can expect to do a non-insignificant amount of group work- both in classes, and outside. You will need to be prepared to explain clearly what your work commitment entails, and should do so at the earliest opportunity, so as to ensure your colleagues can plan appropriately. You do not want to be the flakey student, who can never meet at times that work for the rest of your team, though has not communicated why, or attempted to compromise their schedule for the benefit of the team as a whole.

    • It is going to be online for sure. We aren't going to vaccinate enough people by then and the threat of variants is too high. There is no way universities will be in person for fall 2021. 
    • UBC has no problem accepting 3rd year candidates provided you have the requisite credits. Are you sure you don’t want to finish your degree? I know some people who’ve expressed regrets about not finishing their degree but it’s not otherwise a hindrance in getting a job, all things being equal.
