  1. I received my acceptance early March with a 91.86 index! Regular category. Even if negligible, the personal statement must’ve had some value in my case otherwise there would have been no hope for me this cycle! I know the sample size of posters on this forum is small, but lower index admits do exist Feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions about my application. I believe in you!
  2. Yeah, I don’t really get how they’re assessing applications this year... I got rejected from Ottawa but accepted at UBC so take that as you may 😂
  3. Checked uoZone and status changed to refused today (March 25). Kind of surprised because I tailored my PS to what Ottawa had to offer. Anyways I already accepted an offer from another school. cGPA: 3.70 L2/B2: 3.78 LSAT: 163
  4. For what it's worth, I just declined my offer from Osgoode this morning! Wave or not, there's an extra spot that is about to become available
  5. Got the acceptance email earlier this morning!! GPA: A LSAT: 163 Applied mid November. I'm grateful for the offer but will be declining. Best of luck to you all
  6. By the looks of it you should be fine! I just got accepted to Osgoode a few days ago with a slightly lower GPA and slightly higher LSAT (3.70, 163). One thing though, since it's your last semester of fourth year and you are presumably graduating in May, have you considered re-writing the LSAT in August or October? Even if you were to boost your score by 2-3 points, it would make an immense difference to your application! I would suggest re-writing if you think you will have more study time post-graduation. In any case, 161 is a solid score and you should be proud of yourself for pulling that off with one months' study
  7. Can't speak for too much of OP's situation, but in regards to marketability across provinces, I've read countless threads of applicants/students/graduates concerned about Ontario degrees and securing jobs outside of Ontario (mainly BC). The overall consensus was that if the individual had some sort of connection to the place in BC they wanted to practice (such as family, upbringing, etc.), they didn't encounter much of a barrier in trying to secure a position if it weren't for those connections. That being said, I would like to think that Osgoode would definitely be a solid contender over TRU in your situation when taking flexibility and career opportunities into account, and the fact that you have family in BC does work in your favour if you wanted to practice there eventually. If you decide that you want to stay in BC, then 100% TRU
  8. Accepted this morning via email!! What a pleasant surprise, it’s so nice to hear back after receiving no acceptances last year! cGPA: 3.70 LSAT: 150, 163 Wrote Part B (equity) Entered the queue on January 19. I’m very grateful for the offer but will be declining. Best of luck to everyone waiting, your turn will come soon!
  9. AHHHHHHH I can't believe I am finally posting this!! Got the email earlier today! After completely bombing the LSAT last year and not receiving any acceptances, I thought it was over for me. Applied again this cycle and this is my very first acceptance, at my top choice too! Will happily be accepting!! GPA: 85.5 after drops, confirmed LSAT: 150,163 Index Score: 91.86 I also want to give hope to those of you with lower LSAT/index scores - I was not anticipating to have heard back from UBC this early and am in utter shock! Your turn will come soon So excited to see everyone come September!
  10. I know nothing about admissions but I find the most common sense way (for general applicants at least) would have been to calculate everyone's GPA first and then rank by index score. I called last month asking about my file (85.5, 163) and they said I should hear back some time this month, but with everything that's been going on I doubt that would happen
  11. What's your GPA though? A 162 could be good or bad depending on what index it leaves you with. If they're sorting out applicants by LSAT score, there's bound to be applicants with lower GPAs somewhere in the line.
  12. I know I'm a bit late to this party, but let me share another aspect of application that has really calmed me down as an applicant this cycle. For example, taking the application numbers of both Osgoode (~3,300) and Western (~2,700) this year does seem like an astronomical amount! However, keep in mind that there is a very high possibility of large overlap between these applicant numbers. It's most likely not the case that each school's applicant pool is separate from other schools, as I can almost guarantee that everyone (whether on or off this forum) applied to multiple schools. I think the fear of an impending competitive cycle caused people to apply to more schools than they otherwise would have, because I sure did! No matter how many schools one applied to, they can only accept one offer. Couple that with the point raised earlier that many schools sent out way more offers than seats, and I think things begin to fall into perspective. I'm gonna wager that schools send out more offers than there are available seats because they know that applicants will be applying to multiple schools. So in that sense the numbers seem inflated for sure. As someone who has also yet to receive any acceptances, I just gotta tough it out and wait! We got this
  13. January LSAT taker here, I called them this morning and they have already received the January scores. They told me that the next batch of acceptances would be sometime in March because they are waiting for first round acceptees to respond to their offers by the March first deadline.
  14. Hi! I actually contacted OLSAS and they said it would take between 1-2 weeks for the scores to be updated on the site. If you indicated that you will rewrite when you applied, everything's good to go. If you didn't indicate, you can still make that edit under the LSAT section of your OLSAS application. Sick score increase! Good luck
  15. As the deadline for April is fast approaching, I would consider forgoing this session altogether and focusing on rewriting later in the year if your schedule permits. Since you will presumably be applying for the 2022 cycle, you have lots of time to prepare (theoretically a year maximum from now). It might be tough to get to where you need to be by April as that doesn't leave you with very much time, so I would focus on slowly going through the basics of the LSAT and ensuring you have a thorough understanding of the fundamentals before dropping $$ on test registration.
  16. My application has been stuck on "Pending Review" ever since I applied, so I'm sure those of you who have already gone past that have nothing to worry about!!
  17. In what world would you expect someone with a 3.4/3.5/3.6 and a 167 to be waitlisted so soon? Apparently at Windsor
  18. When I emailed them a couple weeks ago asking what the admissions index was, Dailene replied saying to ask at the end of the admissions cycle. Which is weird, but anyhow 🤷‍♂️
  19. I WAS SO EXCITED WHEN I SAW THE SUBJECT LINE and then I read the email and was like.. well then
  20. Any idea of a reliable way to calculate GPA for UVic? I've browsed a lot of the threads but I can't seem to find a way to do it, so I emailed admissions asking for my GPA but she replied saying to ask for that info again once the admissions cycle is over (?!) which I find really strange. Like what's the point of getting your GPA after the fact? Every other school I asked replied with my GPA when I asked them.
  21. I can't really speak for last-minute LSAT preparation, but have you considered waiting until after you graduate to write the LSAT and then apply next cycle? I presume it would be better for both your GPA and LSAT score.
  22. Seems like I have the same issue; I submitted my application on 10/28/2020 and it's been stuck on Pending Review since then. But for some reason, every item on the checklist says Initiated with a date of 10/30/2021. I'll probably send an email.
  23. Oh okay, thanks for the information. May I ask if you were accepted or rejected last year?
