Recommended Posts

Well, if anything this thread has reaffirmed my decision of not even trying for UofT. Some amazing stats getting rejected.

I'll chip in.  Got my rejection from U of T Tuesday night at 11PM by email, which was to be expected.

cGPA: 3.62

L2: 3.67

December '17 LSAT: 157

Applied mature with ~14 years of work experience including trades then management/operation experience.  Good luck to the rest!

Rejected without a shred of surprise.

For the lady wondering earlier about the contents of the rejection email, mine looks like this:

Thank you for your application to our Juris Doctor program. The admissions committee has finished reviewing your materials. Thank you for your patience. Weknow that you have important decisions to make for the coming year. We are communicating with you by email to give you an answer at the earliest possible opportunity.

It is with great regret that I must inform you that despite the remarkable accomplishments reflected in your application, we are unable to offer you a spot in the first year of the Juris Doctor program.

This year we received more than 2300 applications for the 205 places in the first year of our Juris Doctor program. We face an extraordinarily difficult selection task. Despite the care and attention of the admissions committee, it is inevitable that each year we will simply be unable to offer admission to many individuals who would be excellent law students and outstanding members of our law school community.

You may be wondering what specifically was lacking in your application to our program. In truth, it is often difficult for us to point to obvious weaknesses. The majority of applicants demonstrate real achievement and potential for future contributions. Our decisions are driven by the small number of spaces available in the first year of the Juris Doctor program. The admissions committee is acutely aware that many of the candidates who are not offered admission exhibit outstanding personal, professional and academic promise.

Accordingly, experience suggests that many candidates whom we are unable to accommodate this cycle will be welcomed by other outstanding law schools. If you decide to commence your legal studies elsewhere and continue to have an interest in studying law at the University of Toronto, I would like to invite you to consider applying to the upper years of our Juris Doctor program either as a transfer student or as a letter of permission student. Each year we admit a number of exceptional students to the upper year program who were not admitted to the first year of the Juris Doctor program.

Although we understand that you may be disappointed with the outcome of your application this year, in the long run where you choose to attend law school is less important than what you choose to do with the many opportunities open to you.

No further action is required by you at OLSAS pertaining to this decision. There is no need to withdraw/cancel/drop your UofT application choice online, simply leave it as it is.


We appreciate your interest in our Juris Doctor program and wish you all the best.

If you get into any of the big 4 Ontario schools and are willing to work hard enough, you're golden.  My sense is that the reason UoT (marginally) leads the pack as far as Bay Street hiring is concerned is because a good chunk of future students who want to work on Bay have that school as their first choice because of the general perception of the school. Law school applicants who also want to work in other sectors are less inclined to attend UoT so basically what ends up happening is a sizeable proportion of the Pre-Law bay street crowd ends up going to UoT.

 

This idea was and remains nonsense.

    • Defer. Nobody on this forum knows you or whether you're the type of person who can pull off the bar exam without studying. Never assume you're that type of person, always go into an exam having studied as much as possible. There's no shame in deferring. Save yourself some money (and anxiety) and write the exam when you've had the time to adequately prepare.
    • So, I have my Ontario Barrister exam on 6th of March. Due to some mental health issues and other reasons, I wasn't really able to prepare well for it. While I am well versed in the Civil Litigation and PR part, rest all I have only been able to do a reading (barely remember anything but the main headings). In fact, I still have half of Criminal and Family left. I have been hearing people studying for months and doing repeated exams. I have also heard about people barely studying and still passing. I was thinking of simply taking a try because I have heard the rumour that March sitting has a higher passing rate but it can be just that, a rumor. Should I just let the exam be ? (LSO said I can get a late deferral and still get some money back).  Or I just give it a try ? Thanks.    
    • Section 10 of the Workers Compensation Act gives WCAT the exclusive jurisdiction to determine whether an injury arise in the course of employment. That's distinguishable from giving a tribunal the vetting power to allow or not allow a case to go the the superior courts on the basis of the quantum of the case. in other words, the CRT would decide that a case could be worth a million dollars or $10 which would squarely put the CRT jurisdiction in the realm of superior court exclusive jurisdiction for major quantum awards. In this way, the CRT was blocking access to the S 96 courts. Also, Section 10 of the WCA does not discriminate on the basis of injury or disability. There is no provision where if you have brain injury, you go to WCAT but if you have a broken bone you have full rights to go to Supreme Court. That's the process for the post April 2019 ICBC/CRT system in BC at least before yesterday. 
    • System outage at 12-1
