Also Waitlisted, at least it isn't an outright rejection this year,  

LSAT 155

CGPA: 3.3 (though my GPA for my actual degree-not all of those credits counted was a 3.75) 

Extensive Awards, Accolades, heavy athletic, dramatic, and political extra-curriculars. Strong PS and Letters of Reference and I had hoped dynamic supplemental application. 

I suppose I've been accepted under General, although with my circumstances I applied under both General and Access, because I wasn't sure what I should be. Had checked with the school they agreed it was fine to apply under both.

I hope I get in, I mean I can make my presence make a difference working for a political party for the next year, but I don't want to go through the application process all over again...it's really too much.

Waitlisted this morn after checking uozone.

Applied Access. 3.25, 153, MA, Ottawa resident. Hopefully I get in the top 50-100! I am intending on accepting my position on the waitlist. Ottawa is my top choice, fingers crossed!

Did everyone that got waitlisted got "Unnumbered Waitlist" or do some people know their rank ?

Wait list are not ranked now.

It will be done later on.

You may get an offer before the ranking come out. You may also get an offer without being on the wait list.

 

Good luck

AHHHH!!! so happy to be announcing that I am waitlisted - unnumbered! But seeing as this thread just started I cannot imagine that the waitlist is very long.

I am in the access category.

    • Hi Hegdis, Thanks for the reply. Fortunately, I haven't been approached by any companies with such a proposition. I'm exploring methods towards a prosecution career in Canada that would be most effective time and money wise, while also maintaining a reputable resume. At the time being, it seems like the safest option is to stay in Canada for myself, although I'd have to look for the most cost efficient options. 
    • The answer is very helpful - Thanks a lot!  I know you got into Windsor last year and successfully transferred to Osgoode this year. Congratulations! 
    • My only other comment, which you can take or leave as you like, is that there is a very lucrative business built around convincing high school students that getting a law degree abroad is a great idea. If you find you are getting an aggressive and sparkling sales pitch from some company that “facilitates” or “places” students or whatever, be aware that you are likely dealing with a shill. Go wary. The pamphlets and anecdotes are all very alluring and impressive: just consider the source. Some one is likely trying to profit off of you by convincing you to pay them for a service or “opportunity” that is not going to turn out well for you in the long run. Canadian employers want people educated and trained in Canadian law. If you don’t meet that basic requirement it’s almost always a lot harder for you to find work once your bills are due. 
    • Hey, Thanks for the reply once again. I am indeed in high school, and I don't have an undergraduate degree. I'm in a sort of position  to be admitted for an undergraduate degree in most places, but I'm attempting to find a way to spend as little as possible on university, as I don't want to find myself in a predicament where I've spent 200k or so for 7 years of schooling, only to find a job that doesn't pay well, because of over saturation and whatnot. I'll look into this matter further, but the way I see it as of now, it might be best to look at studying domestically.  Once again, thanks for your input. 
    • I have worked in Canadian criminal law for well over a decade.  You are not going to learn this area of law in the UK. The Charter and the last hundred years of jurisprudence have caused our justice systems to diverge somewhat. Also the rules of evidence differ. Also court customs and decorum. And there’s the Criminal Code. And the CDSA.  Do not go to law school abroad if you want to be a prosecutor. Your first duty to the public is to be competent: without a Canadian legal education you make this a much higher hurdle than it needs to be. Consider getting a Canadian LLB (or are they all JD now? Either way - same degree in terms of substance) and then going abroad for a Masters afterwards.
