haha okay thank goodness. They said I would receive an offer package in the mail and an email in the next week, but I was expecting OLSAS to have changed. Thanks for the clarification :)

Imagine how that conversation would go though. ;)

"Oh hi, sorry to get you're hopes up but we're going to need you to forget our whole conversation from yesterday. Be on standby and happy holidays!"

Actually I do have an offer on OLSAS now, but still don't worry! It wasn't there even 20 minutes ago so it took well over 24 hours (I got the call around noon yesterday).

Congrats to everyone who got the call!

 

Also, I'm a current 1L and (remove if crowding the "accepted" thread) happy to answer any questions from people as I procrastinate my exam studying :)

Have you guys received the email from the admission office yet?

Lol I haven’t but I feel the exact same way!

    • I'd like to offer a different perspective on why you should go to Queen's, in addition to everything stated above. I have found that lawyers coming from Ontario schools have a surprisingly easier time finding jobs in Western Canada (sometimes, even easier than some graduates of Western Canadian schools). This appears to mirror a general trend in Canada where it's easier to move East to West, and much harder to move West to East. In my cohort, a handful of students secured jobs at big firms in Western provinces without having necessarily the most competitive grades. I do note, however, that many of these people were originally from out West (i.e., they were able to establish a connection). Even so, I also notice many Western firms respect Bay Street experience - that is, if you want to move out there one day in the future after working for some years here. Just a thought. Also, I'd like to qualify the above observation by noting these are just some observations I've noted over the years, and it may not hold necessarily  true in all cases.

    • Yeah I’ve heard 1L has a tendency to do that lol 
    • There is literally no point* in living in Vancouver unless you're going to stick around for the summers, so I would take that into consideration.            * - I guess you could get up to the city mountains a couple times as a law student with the odd trip to a bigger hill. In that case, there may be one point.
