Ahh did they email you or you checked OASIS?

Just on OASIS only... I guess it updated just this morning. Although, it says the date this decision was made was on April 2nd.

Based on your numbers, I'm surprised you're not in already.

Just waitlisted in the last hour. I checked a couple times since this thread started, and it only just updated. As with others, the decision was made yesterday.

cGPA: 3.45 (OLSAS)

LSAT: 172 (Dec 2017)

Edit: I should also add that I have two graduate degrees, with a 4.0 average for the first, and an 85% (not sure how to convert this one) for the second.

It is what it is. My personal statement was perhaps a bit controversial... Not too sure about the rest.

I have 3 offers already, but Oz is definitely my top choice.

Do you mind sharing the topic of your PS? It might be useful for future applicants to know what works and what doesn't.

What does this mean for anyone still in queue?

I don't wanna give away too much because it might identify me but I'll say that it touched upon rights, freedoms and my life experience. I had to take a risk because I was on the fence (sub median) for UofT (I used the same thesis for all the different schools), so perhaps it came off as a bit too political given current events (pure speculation on my part).

I also applied access, so maybe that's what delayed the answer to my application.

I would assume at this point that it doesn't mean anything yet. They may not yet have decided on who will be receiving acceptances in the next round. Mine still says 'in queue'.

Was is controversial because it was right wing? I'm aware that there are many accusations that Osgoode is strongly biased towards the left.

    • I don't think they weigh your cGPA too heavily. My cGPA is pretty tragic but I have a strong L2 and a sub-par LSAT and was waitlisted last cycle. I know that's not an acceptance but I really do think they prioritize your L2, and favour a strong upward trend. (I have friends who were accepted over previous cycles with lower cGPA's but strong L2's as well). 
    • I was accepted by Western this cycle with with a 3.08 cGPA and a 3.65 L2 (and a 167 LSAT). Mind you, I also have 2 masters degrees and got an A- average in both (both were course-based). I think cGPA does matter, but they account for how long ago your undergrad was and what you've done since then, and whether you've proved that you could probably do better if you were given another chance (and ergo succeed in law school). 
    • Hi, are there any LLM applicants for the year 2021/2022 who received an admission e mail from Dalhousie? My application was completed on 31st March 2021 and waiting for a reply from the University. Just wondering whether any one of you guys have an update.    Thank you!!!
    • There are a lot of municipalities in Canada. City of Toronto hires a few articling students (most of their lawyers are former articling students and they rarely hire from outside though), along with Region of Peel, York Region, and some others I've seen. For federal government, there is only really the DOJ Legal Excellence Program. The municipalities also hire junior lawyers and I've seen quite a few postings in York Region and the surrounding areas. The process is a lot faster than the federal government which can take over a year from the time you apply. The federal government rarely hires junior lawyers outside of its articling students and federal court clerks. And you often see mid-level lawyers applying for LP-01 positions with the federal government and going through a written exam and interview processes just to end up in a waiting pool. I know people who applied in 2019 for the most recent DOJ LP-01 recruitment process and were put into a waiting pool which is scheduled to expire soon, after which point you have to apply all over again. So getting your foot in the door is a lot harder than it is for municipal and provincial. Certainly, getting into provincial is easier than municipal as there are a lot more legal positions available as well. 
    • Hey I'm a bit late here but I can give you my personal experience. It is quit the contrary of what your expectations seem to be. I did 3 years CEGEP and a 4 year Undergrad (just because I took my time). I spent some time managing a restaurant, then started a law certificate in the evening, then law school. I thought I would be disadvantaged because my background was so far away form the classic path to Biglaw. I will be 28 when graduating. I just did my Course aux stages and got 4 offers, while having a 3.65 GPA. First, they don't care about your age. If you have done anything productive in the past 10 years, it will be a great advantage to you in the interviews, because you might have more to say than anyone else. Find a way to highlight your maturity/leadership or whatever it is you have developed while others were in high school. I had a lot of misconceptions about a supposed prejudice towards older candidates, but I can assure you they don't really care. Get involved in whatever gets you going and be passionate about something. Good luck!
