A significant bummer. In that case, anyone know what the odds are of getting accepted off the waitlist?

Waitlisted yesterday (just checked OASIS, never got an email)...

CGPA: 3.55
L2 (also B2): 3.86
LSAT: 152 (Dec 2017), 161 (Feb 2018)

Applied Access.

I guess I should probably bet on going to Queen's or Western... does anyone know when people start getting accepted off the waitlist?

From historic Accepted 20** threads it appears that people can begin getting off the Waitlist in early May so... soon?

So that makes it at least 16 people on the waitlist...

That’s a pretty long list... looks like chances of getting off the list are slim.

I wouldn't say that. The 2016 pool, which seems the most similar to ours schedule-wise (something funky went on in 2017), had a lot of movement off the waitlist from the end of May onwards. I believe someone mentioned in June last year that the waitlist pool was down to 20 people by mid-June. Not saying we're all guaranteed to get in, but with a class of 290 students, there's bound to be some movement.There's reason be positive about still being in the mix at this stage.

Good luck to all Osgoode hopefuls currently riding out the waitlist! I've been there and understand how grueling of an experience it can be.

Waitlisted as of yesterday, apparently but didn’t see it until today. No email, just saw it on OASIS. Kind of exciting since I have been straight up rejected from them a couple times already.

3.55 cGPA, 3.88 B2L2 (if that even matters) and 150 (Dec 2014) 152 (Feb 2015) and 157 (Feb 2018)

    • 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!
