Accepted Student Attempting to Solicit Paper Writing Services

Recommended Posts

After joining the Class of 2021 Facebook page, another member of the group who (presumably) has been accepted to Osgoode Hall for the 2018-2019 academic year, sent me a message attempting to solicit paper writing services. The message reads as follows:

"I am reaching out to see if you need someone who can help you write your academic essays. I am so-and-so, an experienced academic/custom essay writer. I have written hundreds of papers for many students and consequently helped them meet their academic goals. I would like to know if you would be interested in the service I offer. I can help with term papers, mid term essays, projects, dissertations (my emphasis!!!!), and a host of other academic papers that you might need customized to your specification. I would be glad to discuss my experience and how I can be of help, if you are interested."

Now,  I'll likely just chalk this up to an incredibly poor business plan (I mean, if you are advertising that you can write dissertations, that speaks for itself), considering the academic standard prospective law school students -including myself- hold themselves to. My intent is not to expose this individual or to invite criticism of their behaviour, though it may be warranted. My intent, rather, is to see if anyone else has received this message, or if this is just some kind of twisted test by the folks at Osgoode to assess my moral convictions.

I agree with Luckycharm, I would forward it to the dean. Alternatively, you can reach out to either of the two admins for that group — they're both student government members and in close contact with the faculty. 

@Nabbo , you may want to consider editing your post in case it violates any forum rules against doxxing.

Yeah I figured it may not be the best idea, but considering what this guy is doing (in a law school group nonetheless), I felt he deserved to be put on blast

^ This.

Please notify the school.

I assume this person who added themselves is not actually an admit and is just looking to spam, but if he or she is, I think this kind of behaviour should absolutely be addressed.

Should we include the name of the person who sent this message in a notification to the school?

Sent away a message to the office. I'm sure others sending a message would be useful as well, I just elected to send one because of the bystander effect.

Hi everyone,

Thank you to those contacted Osgoode Admin about the spam messages you have received. We are working to change the group settings to make sure you don't receive anything else like that. Our sincere apologies! If you receive anything else inappropriate, please let us know as soon as possible! Thank you!

Cheers,
Renee

    • Obviously I can't speak for @QuincyWagstaff but I will say my experience was similar to his (had no issues receiving interviews for Crown positions in Toronto and went to a BC law school) and I only had a low B+ average (barely top third of the class).
    • Register for the exam, then all you have to do is email them that you're taking that exam (or indicate in your application) and they will hold off until January; schools don't even reject until way later.
    • I went from scoring pretty low on LG to -1/-2 by: 1. Reading the powerscore LG bible  2. Drilling LG by type (grouping, linear, hybrid) untimed and then timed 3. Drilling full timed sections, watching the 7sage explanation for each game and re-doing the ones where I missed inferences! I hope that helps! Good luck
    • I did the same thing. Could not find time to study at all.
    • I won't discuss this point further with either you or @QuincyWagstaff as you have seemingly no desire to change your ways. This is unfortunate and we all lose out. For others, perhaps more interested in learning about things, statistical significance can be found in any non-zero correlation given a sufficient sample size despite the differentiation that QW distinguishes as being an important one. It is something that has also given rise to the term "practical significance", to which QW and CH appear to be unware of. To put is succinctly, the difference between significant and insignificant is not itself significant.  Edit -Then again, I am on the spectrum. So maybe it's that.
