Okay I am going to start this forum with my head high. I am currently a third year student completing a four year degree. i knew I had a long shot but I wanted to try it. I did my LSAT in Feb and got a pretty dreadful score (that's why I was a long shot for acceptance). I had received an LSAT of 148. My cGPA is 3.78/4.0 scale. I am going to finish this semester (hopefully a bit higher). I knew my LSAT would bring me down and I am studying my ass off for the next one (June or September).
Strong LOR's, average EC's and average PS. This was definitely a learning experience.
I have always wanted to get into Osgoode, this IS my dream law school. I am here to say that though I was dinged on OASIS and through an email notification, i will be applying for the 2018 admission cycle with much stronger stats.
Email thread looks like:

Keep your head up guys, though my LSAT was low, I was also a third year applicant (not finished my degree). I had slim chances. For all of you waiting, be positive and hope for the best. Looking forward to the 2018 admission cycle!
