  1. That's such a great idea though!! I actually just scrolled through to see if anyone had done this, haha. I see the link doesn't work but thank you for spreading the love!
  2. Hi everyone, Hope the apps are going well for all! I'm having trouble clarifying something and hoping someone can help me out. I'll be applying as a Mature student for 2021 admission. As the website states: Mature and Special Applicants It is recommended that Mature and Special applicants provide a detailed resume in addition to the information provided in their online application. My question is: Do Special applicant folks submit a detailed resume in the same section where you put your personal statement, in the application itself? Like, under it somehow? Or do we email it to the admissions office? Or a third option I'm not thinking of? Thank you in advance! Best of luck to everyone.
  3. Thanks very much to both of you! Highly encouraging and positive responses, I appreciate it. All the best to you both.
  4. Hi everyone! I searched for a similar question on here and couldn't find one, forgive me if this is repetitive. Mature applicant here. I'll be applying to Osgoode this year and have a not-horrible-not-amazing academic profile (LSAT 159, cGPA in undergrad 3.5) but great extracurriculars in undergrad, Master's degree with a cool internship, and great professional experience. I have applied to Osgoode (4 years ago, without as much professional experience) and was waitlisted. I'm really hoping to make my personal statement and references pop, to highlight my professional experiences and skills. To that end, I'm stuck on what to do regarding my references. Osgoode strongly recommends one academic reference. I've got one excellent academic reference down as my #1 reference in OLSAS, and am now choosing who my second "ranked" reference should be. My question is: given my profile - for which I think it makes sense to stress my professional skills/experiences since I left undergrad - would you recommend I choose an excellent community engagement reference (I have volunteered in the Violence Against Women sector for two years, and am planning on referencing the feminist advocacy clinical program on VAW in my personal statement), or would you choose a second academic reference? I plan on including all three in my OLSAS application (2 academic, 1 community) but am unsure how to rank the community engagement reference versus the second academic one. I am leaning towards the community engagement person being my #2, but I worry that I am overstating how much Osgoode will value this experience, and that a second academic reference would be preferable. I'd really appreciate any advice you might have. Thank you!
