  1. Still haven’t been rejected, accepted, or waitlisted. Is anyone else in the same situation? I’m not sure what this means. Is it actually possible that they haven’t even looked at my application yet?
  2. That’s a good point. Are there any statistics available that show the amount of students who participated in the formal recruit from each school? Or alternative any statistics on Bay Street hires by school outside of the recruit?
  3. I have a backup plan, if Davies doesn't want me ill go to Blake
  4. My apologies, I didn't mean to offend. I'm just trying to figure out which school makes the most sense for someone like me who is striving to work on bay street and didn't get into Toronto. From what iv'e seen, it seemed like in the past Osgoode was the obvious choice, but based on recent numbers like OCI, it seems like other schools are closing the gap and are now equally good choices. I'm just trying to figure out where I should go if I end up getting in to either or those schools.
  5. I never said it was the only indicator of reputation. But is the school's placement rates into the top legal market in canada not a good indication of success? If I want to go into corporate law, the best school is the one that has the highest chance or placing me on bay street. This is obvious to me.
  6. If Western is cheaper and has virtually identical bay street OCI numbers with Osgoode, wouldn't Western be the better choice for business law specifically? Also this is just a though I was having the other day, but i wonder if there is merit to it... Osgoode was the only law school in Ontario for a considerable amount of time (like almost 100 years or something). I would think that this would be a considerable advantage for the school in terms of reputation, which would likely lead to better recruitment numbers. If osgoode now has the same bay street OCI rates as western and queens, would that not suggest that osgoode is declining? Perhaps very shortly in the future western will pass it as the clear choice for business law. As a disclaimer I have absolutely nothing against osgoode hall, I would be absolutely honoured to attend if they accepted me, this is just a thought I had.
  7. Windsor has a 18% OCI rate for Bay: http://ultravires.ca/2018/11/toronto-2l-hiring-numbers/ If your comfortable spending a hundred thousand dollars for those odds than go to Windsor. Its gunna be tough to have a better application/better interview/better luck than roughly 82% of your class tho. Personally if bay was my only goal I would only go to uoft, osgoode, Western, Queens. You mentioned that you could be interested in other areas of law so you’re gonna have to do a risk reward evaluation to see if it makes sense for you. If you could see yourself working in a smaller market in a different city and be happy with your investment, and see bay street as a bonus that you don't expect but would take if the opportunity came, then Windsor sounds like a great option. However, if you could only see yourself being happy with your investment if you're working in biglaw on baystreet, than its probably not the smartest investment at those odds.
  8. Yeah very strange. I really thought I would get in with 3.71/3.8/162. Oh well guess they didn’t like me
  9. Western posted it on their website: https://law.uwo.ca/future_students/jd_admissions/information_for_current_applicants.html
  10. You might find out tomorrow! They are sending out a small round of offers
