what make you think they release them by alphabetically order? I thought they go by how much you weight.

Originally I thought it might be alphabetically because someone at 274/298 and someone at 8/298 were released at around the same time, but other people hadn't heard back yet (so it clearly isn't by rank). but now I don't know anymore lol

I'm last name A so this could make sense. 

General category by the way.

The admissions officer told me on the phone that after July 3rd, their should be a lot of movement as provisional acceptances are due on the third. 

I really hope that there is movement. My ranking still makes me nervous though (52/298)...I don't want to gamble away my offer at Windsor.

I found out my ranking (1/298) and my jaw dropped. I’m a mature applicant, last name starts with W, and I am full of conflicting emotions, lol. Wishing good luck to everyone!

Welcome to Windsor

You will most likely not get an offer before July 3

I just called an admin person and they said they’re just going through applications and updating as they go while they do other work (so they aren’t updating by alphabetical order or by ranking), plus they’re doing it manually. 

They’re a little short staffed which is why it’s taking a bit longer for the rankings to come out, but ALL rankings will be out by end of day, guaranteed.

LSAT 158

CGPA 3.84

I am also a former law student (Queen’s 95 and UofO 97 until some serious health problems derailed my progress. I got almost straight A’s first year, with the exception of a B- in property law. (God does that sound really annoying?)

I didn’t apply anywhere else. I’ve got 3 kids under the age of 12, lol, so it wasn’t really an option.

Here’s one for all the fans and spectators: ranked 149/298. LSAT 162, CGPA 3.01.  Mature. 

Why on earth is the waitlist this large? It seems really unnecessary.

There are ~300 spots in the class. 

Between people who receive offers and people on the waitlist accepting elsewhere and wait-listed candidates removing themselves from consideration for whatever reason as the summer goes on, a long list makes sense.

Being anything over 125 is basically a miracle. last two years the wait list was way shorter.

    • I have applied to every school in Canada Cgpa: 3.2 (155 total credits) L2: 3.52 Lsat: 155 highest 4 month summer student internship at a law firm, visible minority, managed construction project, worked part time throughout undergrad in unrelated field. Filled out special facts for U of C and Part B for Osgoode discussing low gpa initially during undergrad. Three great references. One is from a lawyer with 20 years experience stating I have experience fulfilling duties similar to that of an articling student  Is there a chance I get in anywhere this cycle?
    • Hi,  I have taken the LSAT 3 times now, I had a 158 during my recent test. I have spent 1000s of hours studying.  I was born with Non-verbal learning disorder and disgraphia. These are having a direct impact on my ability to do the LSAT. In addition, my working memory is in the 4th percentile. I am looking for a tutor that understands disability theory, preferably has had experience teaching people with learning disorders    Thanks!     
    • Not a UOttawa student, but I was accepted to Osgoode this cycle. Law admissions in Ontario through OLSAS utilize a standardized GPA conversion formula based upon your grades received, the credit worth, and length of the classes you have taken across all years of undergraduate. This is called your CGPA, and it is the value you will see many prospective law students citing on this website. I would first recommend inputting your grades into a calculator like the one constructed by the creator of this site (link below) to see your CGPA, and facilitate making comparisons between accepted students and your current stats easier. Citing the Ontario Universities Application Centre (link also below): "OLSAS uses a 4.0 scale. Refer to the OLSAS Undergraduate Grading System Conversion Table to determine the grading scale used for each university that you attended/are attending. The law schools equate university work on the basis of the Ontario traditional academic year system. For universities operating in the semester system, 2 semesters are combined as the equivalent of an academic year (i.e., semesters 1 and 2 are combined for first year; semesters 3 and 4 for second year). Co-op semesters are grouped similarly." Note: Your CGPA is likely to be lower than your university GPA based on how the calculation is done.  https://lawapplicants.ca/grade You will also get L2 and B3 values, which means your CGPA for your most recent last 2 years, and best (highest grades) 3 years of undergrad. Some law schools utilize these values, but not necessarily all nor even most. Also, here is some information on how your CGPA is calculated differently than your university GPA.  https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/olsas-gpa-calculations/
    • Same. I was planning to re-write it for the 2021 cycle and now that I am finally getting a decent score, the test date is not so certain anymore 😭
