Osgoode doesn't have a distinct mature student category, only general and indigenous.

Hey all,

 

Got my acceptance on Thursday. 169 LSAT, GPA around a 3.30, but with my last three semesters hovering around 3.70.

I believe I got very flattering references, and my schooling background is a bit interesting (biochemist with significant work experience in both industry and government), so that may have helped me out. 

I've still go applications out at a few other Ontario schools and UBC, so we'll see what happens with accepting or going elsewhere!

Congratulations!

 

If you don't mind me asking, I had a couple questions:

 

1. Did you have any publications from your work as a biochemist?

2. Did your application go into queue on OASIS, and if so, when?

 

Many thanks and all the best in law school!

Thanks!

 

1) I had one publication and presented at a few conferences from my work, though it looks like I may get another one in a rather large journal before the fall!

 

2) I went into queue on 18 Jan, so I think there's about two weeks between queue and decision, at least in my case!

 

Thanks again, and best of luck in your application process!

Congrats! Do you mind me asking what your ECs/LORs were like?

 

Sure.

 

EC's: Dual sport varsity athlete, volunteer of the year for an organization at my school, numerous volunteer activities through sports (high school visits, camps, etc.), coach for youth teams, worked while at undergrad (20 hours a week?), tutor and TA, case competitions, hold an honours degree.

 

LORs: I have not read them myself but, I am sure they were very good. Both from professors with phd's who I know quite well. One was my honours supervisor, the other was a professor who also ran the volunteer organization that I was heavily involved with.

 

Seems to me that Osgoode is quite holistic, I did not expect to hear back so soon!

I guess there will not be more acceptances for local applicants until the next LSAT results come out, which is around March 1, 2017.

Are you sure that acceptances are handed out based on region?

    • Why would any knowledge of civil law be useful in a common law jurisdiction? To answer you initial question, the fact that U de M has an agreement with Oz doesn't mean that other common law students can't apply for the fast track 1 year civil as well. There's more paper work to go through, and it's not a guarantee that they'll accept you but it is doable. 
    • I am not feeling as ready for my November LSAT as I would like but am going to take it and see how I do. In the meantime I would like to have the Jan LSAT as a fall back.  As I would need to register for the Jan LSAT before I will get my Nov score - do you think it would look bad if I called schools to tell them I was taking the Jan LSAT now? Also if Nov goes better then expected would it look bad to then again call them and tell them I am no longer taking Jan (in order to get my application looked at sooner)? Thanks for any tips or advice
    • @BNAAct1867Is the fast tracked civil law program at U de M open to any common law students? I know Osgoode has the combined JD/BCL program with U de M. I am interested in living in MTL for one year and I have been actively learning french, also I noticed some people mentioned the civil law knowledge can be useful even if one works in common law provinces. 
    • i'm confused do they use olsas converted cgpa or b3?
    • I was in your same situation. I emailed a lot of prof's I did highly well in and I chose two from the list of emails. we'll see how it turns out this year but try choosing profs you know would write a great letter without knowing you (some people are good hearted) .
