  1. They said there would be an round of offers by the end of May, i.e today. I would wait until tomorrow personally
  2. Waitlisted today 3.72 cgpa, 3.79 L2, 162 see you guys next cycle
  3. I think tomorrow is the day, I got a good feeling about it
  4. Is that your OLSAS gpa?
  5. You have to submit your winter grades to OLSAS. Not sure if they consider them tho
  6. Does anyone have any insight about when the next round of offers goes out? (Beyond “we will hear back by May 31st”). They seem to have stopped updating their very helpful website: https://law.uwo.ca/future_students/jd_admissions/information_for_current_applicants.html
  7. Any acceptances from waitlist today, or were all from queue?
  8. You both were insulting and rude from the beginning. Implying that us wanting to make an informed decision and not rush into anything means we would not succeed in law or law school is an insult. This thread is going so off topic. It was about trying to see who hadn't had their file evaluated at Western. Lets stick to that. If you want to have your debate on whether you can move cities to attend law school in a week, make your own thread.
  9. Not sure what crawled up your ass. I feel sorry for any future client represented by someone as ignorant as you no one even said it was impossible. We just said it’s not ideal. Not sure why you felt the need to comment at all
  10. What excuse am I making? I guess some of us like to think through our 100k+ investments and set up ideal situations for ourselves. Guess you're not one of those people.
  11. Not everyone used OSAP for undergrad and may of us will also need to get a bank loan. That on top of going to visit the city, finding an appropriate apartment, and moving is a good bit to figure out.
  12. I agree. At this point it feels like a loss either way. We need time to figure out the logistics of attending should we get admitted.
  13. I’m with you I’m starting to lose hope. It’s very odd to me that they would admit so many students before they even reviewed all the files
  14. Yeah but the ones that come out later are likely because they evaluated their files later. I highly, highly doubt they made all the waitlist decisions at the same time and decided to tell some people months before others...
  15. The only weird thing is that a lot of rejections and waitlist have gone out. Which to me would suggest that they haven’t read our applications yet... if they declined us or waitlisted us, we would have heard with everyone else in the past couple weeks. If they accepted us before April 11th we would know as well. To me all that’s left is that a) they haven’t read our apps for some bizzare reason, or b) we’ve been accepted post April 11 and will hear when the next round goes out.
  16. I agree, it's likely also because my grades are borderline. But im sure my weak ECs aren't doing me any favours. If only I hit closer to my PT average on the January LSAT
  17. I agree with most of the responses you’ve received. I would just add that although ECs might not make up for bad grades, not having any or very few may negatively affect your application. In my case, I have a 3.71 cgpa and a 162. I am above the medians for gpa and LSAT at osgoode and western and still have not received an acceptance from either school. Although I could still hear back from them later in the cycle, it looks like I won’t be getting in. I don’t know forsure why they don’t like my application, but my best bet would be that very little ECs negatively affected my chances. If I were you I would look to have good ECs even if they won’t make up for poor grades.
  18. 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?
  19. 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?
  20. I have a backup plan, if Davies doesn't want me ill go to Blake
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
