Come September, we're all coming back to school! Personally, I'm starting my first year in the Animation Course, and as of right now I'm still actively looking for a place to live/people who are looking for room mates- so in that thought I'm hoping I can get a "last minute preparations" thread going so that no one else is caught off guard when September rolls around!
Things to think about:
1- Are you all caught up with OSAP/Other Government Loans?
When it comes to me, I've been up to date with OSAP when it comes to their deadlines and whatnot. But as of this moment on the "Current Status" part of the site, it says "Check back Mid-June". Now obviously, it's the starting of July, so I called them and all they said was that all the applications have been processed and to just keep checking the website to view the status. Needless to say, I'm a little worried. Has anyone else heard back?
2-Have you decided if you're going to commute or move out?
Some people will definitely be able to commute, and I'm a little more than envious of them!
Unfortunately as of right now, I live in Oshawa- and I don't really want to be commuting six hours a day just to attend classes, so I've been actively looking for rooms/apartments. My girlfriend is also looking to move out with me- she's a Culinary student at George Brown and wouldn't mind the commute (or even cooking for you guys if you ask nicely!!). Over the last few weeks we haven't really had any callbacks or anything, so we're a little worried. If there's anyone out there looking for a couple of nice, friendly, neat room mates, please don't hesitate to send me a PM/Add me on Skype/Send me an E-mail! All of that information is in my profile.
3-Have you been up to date with Sheridan Payments?
I went for the paying the $300 deposit option because I've been hoping OSAP would be coming. But as of right now, I still haven't hear anything, so I'm still a little worried!
4-Is there any other things you think you may have missed?
Honestly, I'm sure I may have even forgotten some stuff. If you feel like there's something you may have missed, don't hesitate to ask.
If you have any questions you feel that should be answered, just leave a post and I'll do my best to help! And if you know anyone who can help me out as well, that would be fantastic!
