  1. I'm really fine with the possibility of reading a case and having it not end up being required. It's not like that will harm me. I just figure if I'm reading cases anyway, might as well read ones that have the chance of being relevant to me in first year, etc. Thanks though! Thanks for the recommendations! Again, I would fully plan on re-reading the cases when I encounter them in my courses. Familiarity can't hurt though. I also did my undergrad in law and have been reading/interpreting/analyzing cases for years now.
  2. Haha, thanks. I did get that you were trying to joke around, so it's all good! I've actually read most of the Hogg constitutional law book, Roach's criminal law book, and a bit of McCamus in my undergrad law courses. I could take a look at Foundations, but like I said, I was hoping for cases so that I can read them online at work. Thanks though!
  3. LSAT was a 169 and my OLSAS GPA was 3.95 (best two would be a 3.99). Personal email, same as when I received my acceptance.
  4. I've received a large offer from Osgoode - it came last week by email. I was accepted in early December.
  5. I do get what you’re saying, but like I said, I fully plan on reading things again once I’m in school. I just figure if I’m reading anyway, having some guidance on main things to read would be nice. I know that the cases will be given extra context and that I can’t understand all the intricacies now, but even just grasping the facts, issues, and basic reasoning of the court can end of useful. I feel like if I got sick of reading cases by September, law school might not be for me anyway. My office is pretty small and there’s not much space to just waste time and walk around. I’m expected to be at my desk, and my computer screen is faced out to everyone. It’s basically cases or just staring at my empty inbox.
  6. I wasn't in queue until November 28, but I got in yesterday. I don't think it always is determined by the date.
  7. In as of yesterday! LSAT 169, GPA 3.87, solid softs. Last name B
  8. Accepted at around noon this afternoon! LSAT: 169, GPA 3.87, strong ECs. Applied last minute, thought my personal statement would be the issue. Last initial: B!
  9. My school doesn’t actually give percentile grades. Anything from 90-100 is an A+, 85-89 is A, and 80-84 is an A-. It’s on a 12 point scale. This screws up our gpas because if you get a 99% in one class and a 89% in another, you’d get an 11.5 average which is around an 87.5, since they average the 12 point scores rather than the percentage scores. But for comparison, my grades were: first year: 2 A+s, 1 A, 2 A-s second year: 4 A+s, 1 A third year: 5 A+s fourth year: 4 A+s, 1 A
  10. I didn't even have a French interview! I have decent French experience, as in I've studied it in university a bit, and managed to take an upper year interdisciplinary French course, but I never studied French until university. I openly admitted in my personal statement that I'm not fully bilingual, but that I'm willing to work on it.
  11. I received an email, and now Minerva shows as "Admitted." My official letter will apparently be available tomorrow.
  12. Got accepted this afternoon, so thought I'd start a post! GPA: 3.87, LSAT 169, solid softs and reference letters. (Comparatively) weak French.
  13. Hello all! I’m about to submit my application for Osgoode, and think I have pretty solid chances (3.9 cgpa, 169 lsat), but I’m wondering whether I should submit my part b personal statement. As a kid, I had a ton of medical problems and was homeschooled as a result. This cause me significant uncertainty as to my academic future when I was in high school, and meant that first year university was a huge adjustment to me. I feel like this makes me a unique candidate, but I don’t want to minimize other peoples’ much more serious equity concerns by writing about this. However, Osgoode says part b is for anything that makes you a diverse candidate. With that in mind, I would think I fit the category. Should I write part b, or no?
