That was before they had LSAT scores from December released 2 weeks ahead of schedule. I think round 2 is in progress currently.

There's a post on their tumblr saying the decision process started on January 12th and will be ongoing until the 26th.

ROUND 2 NOTIFICATIONS OF ADMISSION OFFERS BEGAN JAN 12, 2018

The second round of admission selections to the first year of the JD program for entry in 2018 have begun.

When may I find out?
At this point, we are anticipating to complete the second round of offers over the next two weeks between Jan 12-26. Notifications will not be made daily. The bulk of notification may likely be sent closer toward Jan 26 since it takes time to conduct a proper review of files.

 

 

Acceptances coming the next few weeks, most of it will be closer to the 26th. Good luck!! :)

Hi everyone! Congrats to those accepted :)

Just to let you know for future reference: the calls don't go out in alphabetical order! I met with the Senior Admissions Director and he said they are most definitely just random - simply based on the applications each admissions officer has in their pile. :) Hopefully that can quell some of the anxiety of waiting to hear.

I see people referencing "calls." Have people who have heard back during the January round received emails as well? I am abroad and can't receive phone calls at the moment, but I did not think that this would be an issue because I had already received an email from the UofT when I applied which indicated that offers would be extended via email.

The call is basically a courtesy notification, it is always followed by an official email offer. And then a few days later your offer will appear in OLSAS in the Choices/Offers tab.

How many offers do they give out? The Facebook group has so many people!

About 290 to 300, considering the yield rate is 70% and the entering class is always between 205 and 210 people.

Are people who decline/provisionally accept elsewhere removed from the FB group?

Would they actually fill their class before the Feb LSAT scores have came out? That seems weird to me, considering they say they take the Feb LSAT (at least, I am pretty sure they do). Anyone know the link to the group? Tried searching Facebook and couldn't find it. 

 

Edit: Found it.

They state that they do their third and final main round of offers in mid-March. But it's certainly seemingly like there aren't many slots left now...

I don't think that the FB group can actually verify, I somewhat doubt there have already been 220 offers when the U of T blog says the bulk of this round's offers will be this coming week

I was wondering about that myself, but people seemed to indicate that the group was invite only?

(Apologies for contributing to derailing this thread a bit...)

Did UofT send out e-mail notifications for the second round? 

A few hours after receiving the phone call I got an email.

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
