  1. Received the email on June 25th, accepted from the wait list. CGPA 3.30 LSAT 163 master's good luck everyone!!!!
  2. Please dont get me wrong. I am not complaining at all and am very grateful for the opportunity to study at Western. Im not even worried about myself, I just cant wrap my head around the application process not being solely about personal characteristics and accomplishments. I just believe the way the deadlines are set moves away from the objective assessment that I thought would be in place when I started applying to law schools.
  3. It comes down to realizing getting acceptance to law school is not solely dependant on your personal accomplishments and characteristics but it depends on some external factors that are out of your control. This is something I should wrap my head around. I think its not objective, but it is what it is.
  4. They don't need to stop being holistic or thorough. Maybe a little bit more efficient?
  5. I don't intend to hold on to two spots, I absolutely hate the idea that my decisions are detrimental to another student's position. BUT, my other alternative is gambling with admission, which is something no student should go through. My point is that maybe law schools should adjust their deadlines so everyone could hear back before July 1st. Instead of setting the deadline for deferrals on August something, why not late June? And my point still stands, the acceptance process shifts from law school's criteria to something that could be prevented with a little bit of adjustments to deadlines! But you're right, "unfair" is not the right word, maybe bullshit??
  6. I just really think it is well within their power to avoid putting students in a situation to gamble with something so important.

  9. Hey, I've been thinking very hard about the whole application process that has consumed my life for the past couple of months. Specifically, I have been bemused by how you lose your spot on OZ's (and other law schools I suppose) waitlist after your provisional offer becomes a firm offer from other law schools on July 1st. For the following reason, I believe this process has a serious fairness issue: Let's say I am the 10th person on the waitlist, and lets assume that the waitlist is hierarchical. On July 2nd, I will inevitably lose my spot on the waitlist since I have provisionally accepted an offer to another law school and, the 11th person would take my spot, given that he/she has not yet been admitted to any law schools. I AM BEING DISADVANTAGED IN MY ADMISSION PROCESS SOLELY BECAUSE OF BEING ADMITTED TO ANOTHER SCHOOL, AND NOT BY THE ASSESSMENT CRITERIA SET OUT BY OZ FOR THEIR APPLICANTS (i.e LSAT, CGPA, Reference Letters, ....). I don't intend to hold on to two spots, I absolutely hate the idea that my decisions are detrimental to another student's position. BUT, my other alternative is gambling with admission, which is something no student should go through. My point is that maybe law schools should adjust their deadlines so everyone could hear back before July 1st. Instead of setting the deadline for deferrals on August something, why not late June? I think it is well within the schools' power to adjust the deadlines in a way that no student would have to gamble with one of the most important decisions of their lives! Isn't this BS? 😑 Thanks.
  10. regular, and yes I submitted part B
  11. Thank you for answering my questions. I believe this summer is going to be extraordinary as COVID plays an integral part in students' decision-making. I think most of the deferral requests will be submitted after government officially decides whether the classes are going online or not. The waiting game continues... 😏
  12. Considering that Osgoode's deadline for deferral requests is August 1st, wouldn't it be more likely that the majority of waitlist decisions would happen after that date?
  13. I was just waitlisted by OZ. Does this mean that by July 1st, I will have to choose between the school that I have provisionally accepted, or to gamble and wait on OZ until mid-late August? Is there anyway that I can avoid making this decision until I hear back from OZ?
  14. waitlisted April 30th: CGPA: 3.3 LSAT: 163
  15. I dont about maintenance, but I cant access OASIS either.
