My status also changed to the offer for an interview. However, I'm not a mature student. I was under the impression that interviews were only for mature applicants, so I'm wondering if I maybe got this message by mistake.

Does anyone know if there is something to be done come April 1 if you've got one acceptance (Western) but still waiting to hear from others? Or basically do I have to make a decision at that point

You provisionally accept the offer from Western on OLSAS and pay the deposit. That reserves your seat while also keeping the other applications active. I'm in the same boat as you and if I don't hear back from Osgoode this week, I'll provisionally accept Western.

Thanks!

Finally got around to declining my offer from Osgoode. Here's hoping the spot goes to someone on here!

Livability is a big concern for me as well. Commuting for an hour does not seem practical and neither does living near/on campus. Thats the only drawback to Osgoode.

Respectful decision! A part of me hopes I get dinged from Osgoode so I don't have to choose between there and Queen's.

Still no facebook group for class of 2017?

 

I know some schools have official groups created by admin from the school...does Osgoode? Or are the groups usually created by students?

Lol, this was basically the reasoning behind my choice not to apply to UTSG for law (although it would have been a reach school for me anyways). For various reasons the thought of spending another 3 years at the campus was really unappealing to me.

I thought Osgoode Chamber is the closest residence to class in Canada.

 

It is only a 5 minutes walk on the average. You can get an apartment for around $800 and you

can stay 8 months only.

    • If that is your official OLSAS calculation and it’s so off, I’d be curious to know why as well. Generally speaking, my calculator has been reasonably accurate, so it may be worth looking into what they used to come up with those numbers. Assuming you included everything in my calculator, unless something is wrong with how I did things specific to your situation, they may have made a mistake. It’s rare but it happens. I’d confirm.  Let me know if it does turn out to be my app. 
    • https://www.osgoode.yorku.ca/programs/juris-doctor/jd-admissions/upper-year-exchange-applicants/transfer-letter-permission-applicants/ Decisions are generally made in accordance with the following priorities: Up to one-half of the available positions will be awarded to applicants on the basis of the strength of their law school academic records to date. It is therefore critical that we receive an indication of an applicant’s standing relative to the rest of his or her class. No fewer than one-half of the available spaces will be awarded to applicants who demonstrate compelling, compassionate circumstances that require them to transfer to Osgoode Hall Law School. Academic qualifications are not ignored in this subgroup but rather are used to aid in deciding between candidates who demonstrate comparable compassionate circumstances. Within this subgroup, priority will be given to: persons who must relocate to the Toronto area due to their own medical condition or that of an immediate family member; persons who would be separated from their dependents where separation to date has been extensive and commuting is not a viable option; and persons who demonstrate extreme financial hardship occasioned by study outside of the Toronto area. You sound a little insensitive to the fact that there are people attending law school with serious needs. My buddy transferred to Osgoode with a strong B+ average, but also had compassionate reasons in that he could hardly afford living expenses and had a wife and children to care for in Toronto.   
    • There likely isn't, I just find it odd that the change from the past cycle to this one is so different. Like I said in my original post, heed Ryn's advice and don't get your hopes up either way.
    • There has to be... most of the people that got in queue a few days ago received an acceptance
    • I didn't think there was any correlation between when you go into queue and when your are accepted.
