  1. Hi, thanks for your response! I'm just wondering do you know if a deferral request is denied, would I lose my spot at Osgoode? Or would a deferral denial simply mean I am expected to attend OZ in the incoming fall? Thank you!
  2. I recently received a generous offer to a one-year graduate program that I would like to pursue before embarking on my law school journey. The deadline to confirm my position (accept or decline) regarding this offer is April 30. After emailing Osgoode, they stated that they will not be reviewing deferral requests until May 1. My question is, how likely is it that Osgoode will grant me a deferral to pursue this program? Should I tell the graduate program coordinators about my situation in case the deferral is not approved (in which case I would go to law school), or should I not bother? And does anyone know if Osgoode's deferral policy means that we are able to submit deferral requests now, even if they won't be considered until May 1 (or should we wait until May 1 to submit the request)? Lastly, are deferral requests submitted to [email protected] ? Thank you!
  3. I live about a 1 h 20 min. public transit commute or a 30 min. drive from Osgoode. I thought I would save some money and stay at home this year, but after some consideration, I'm not sure if I should apply for housing at this moment. Do you think it's worth applying if classes are online or in a dual delivery mode? Would I still be able to apply for housing in the winter semester if things go back in person by then? Or do you think it's smarter to wait for 2L to move out, after getting the hang of law school? If any students who did their classes online this year and still lived on campus could share their experiences also, that would be really appreciated! Thank you!! EDIT: I would also like to add that I would have to finance housing + my tuition by myself.
  4. Disappointed, but not surprised 😕 CGPA/B3: 3.80 LSAT: 164
  5. Accepted on OASIS on Jan. 11th! LSAT: 162, 164 OLSAS CGPA: 3.80 Didn't write part b! Congratulations to everyone and good luck to those still waiting!! 🥳😊
  6. what score do you think is strong enough to aim for, for my gpa?
  7. I don't know is this matters but update: I scored a 166 on the first pt I took in a while and BR'ed a 174. I'm not sure if it's worth trying to pursue a higher score for a January LSAT at this moment ;~;
  8. I already took the LSAT twice in the past year, once in June (162) and once again in August (164). I was scheduled to take it again In November but decided to post-pone it until January. Admittedly, Master's applications and end-of-term finals got the best of me, so I haven't studied vigorously since November. My OLSAS cGPA and B3 is 3.80. My dream school is UofT, which is why I have been considering retaking the LSAT so many times as I do recognize that I am in their lower percentile (though I also applied to Osgoode, Western, Queens, and Ryerson). However, I do not want to have a third attempt on file without a significant increase (as in 167+) since I have heard this does not look good and would want to save a third and final-ish attempt in the case that I decide to defer going to law school for another year, which would give me more time to study for a third attempt. Considering the January LSAT is in two weeks, do you think it is worth retaking? Or should I just apply to this cycle with a high of 164 and 3.80? I do have a lot of family, work, and academic commitments, but I would be willing to give it another shot in January 2021 if this is the general consensus. Any insight would be appreciated! Thanks!
  9. I definitely sympathize! I'm glad we do get updates, but it's quite stressful (and frustrating) to have these updates not correspond with what they actually planned ;~; I felt quite blindsided by how the first round actually panned out, considering previous years and what the tumblr updates said would happen instead. I too would personally prefer not having exact updates than being misled, though I do understand that the amount of work the admissions committee has to do is incredibly overwhelming and impressive. I guess they're doing their best given the circumstances? 😣 But it definitely doesn't feel so great on the receiving end.....
  10. hey, just wondering why 50% for UofT? is it based on the factors OP outlined, outside of stats? thanks!
  11. hey! I've been studying on-and-off again for the LSAT during the school year as well! Though it is incredibly difficult to stay on top of things, some of the things I think I learned have been: 1) do a little every day (even if it's 30 minutes or an hour of studying) 2) prioritize the quality of your reviewing over quantity 3) and try to do one pt every weekend or one pt every 2 weeks. I'm in the same boat as you! I've taken a week-long break at this point LOL But good luck to us!
  12. omg Jerome!!! Hahaha he was so funny when he came to our school to give an admissions presentation! Love the dude (also, if you're comfortable, do you mind sharing your stats? I wonder if UofT prioritizes the higher stats in first round of admissions or if it's just more random LOL)
  13. I think it might depend on the school? For example, I know U of T will look at your full application and if they consider you a competitive applicant they will not wait for your retake score to be processed in order to make a decision. I get the general sense that schools will see all your LSAT scores and reassess when your retake score comes in, but I might be wrong....
