Chances?

cGPA: 3.63

LSAT: 158

Strong LORs and good ECs. 

If your ECs and LORs are rly that good then I think if you rewrote the lsat and got a 160+ you'd have a good chance :) . your cgpa is really good.

I spoke to someone who used to be on admissions at Osgoode (~4 years ago so take this with a grain of salt) and they basically confirmed that Osgoode really is holistic and looks carefully at everything in your file/extremely values ECs and strong LORs. Although I'm not getting my hopes up, this person told me I have a decent shot on getting in later in the cycle as a result of my ECs - and I have a way worse cgpa than you (3.35, 160lsat).

OZ is NOT holistic

Although OZ will admit certain applicants with not so competitive stats for holistic reasons.

Just because OZ looks at everything in your application doesn't mean they are holistic.

Windsor is the true holistic school

Sorry I do not mean to be a killjoy but I don't think you should mislead them (and others on this board) into thinking that a 3.63 cGPA is "really good" just because it is much better than yours (no offense). Their cGPA barely scrapes Osgoode's median for last year and is decent, but unlikely to make up for their LSAT. IMO a really good cGPA (or LSAT) is one that can make up for weaker areas of an individual's application (this is dependent on the school as well)  and this just isn't it.

thats fair but I'm not comparing to just my own but to other peoples from past accepted threads here - where coupled with good ECs, a 3.63 and a low 160 has been good enough for oz many times. Which is why I said I think a rewrite is necessary; and IMO even a few points higher would make op way more than "20%" likely to get in. 

Also I wasn't trying to mislead anyone lol so I guess I shouldn't have said op's cgpa is really good, because yeah its obviously not amazing as a 3.8 3.9... but its respectable. :)

    • Hi everyone, I am at the bottom half of the waitlist and I don't think I'll get in this year. Do you have any suggestions for spending a gap year? To those who have applied for more than one cycle, I would be very grateful if you could share your experiences. Many thanks!
    • I've been told that we won't hear anything until very end of June/early July. I asked them whether rolling admissions occurred and they said no. 
    • I am considering a career change from tech to law, and have a background in software development & technology sales. My interest in pursuing law would fall squarely within the realm of privacy, data governance, and emerging technology (specifically explainable AI). In looking around I see there are a few schools that have named institutes or a general focus on law and tech (Dal, UofO, York, UofT, Ryerson), but I am interested in how much of those cirricula relate to IP/patent law vs. privacy and data governance. I assume that IP law and data governance might have significant overlap or will in the near future. I am not really interested in patent law or software licenses. Can anyone who is familiar with these streams comment on your experience and what the focus tends to be at your institution? Do I have an unrealistic expectation of what law school is by thinking I can focus on this narrow intersection of law and tech? I am in the process of reaching out to admissions but I would also like to hear first-hand experiences. Thanks for your time!
    • I sent mine through TD and it has definitely left my account.  I just don't know who to contact at the university because the finance email said they would get back to me in 3 business days, and common law said they have no way of letting me know if it has been received.  
    • Cancelled my offer recently so a spot should open up!
