Is anybody still in queue from early March with good stats? If so, what is your take on things right now? Are spots filled? Is a rejection coming? Trying to stay positive but also be prepared for the worst.

been in queue since march 5 - cgpa 3.0, L2 3.7 and LSAT 159 (Jan 2019)

I have been in queue since Jan 9th... is there any chance of being accepted or are they just waiting to send out more rejections? Thoughts?

Yep, still waiting. To respond to a couple of posts above.. I am wondering the same about potential rejections but I also feel a for sure rejection or "auto-rejection" would have been sent out prior to it being this late into the cycle but who knows

Who else dreads 9am, 12pm, 3:30-6pm and 12am.. the times I think I’m going to hear back... I just want this agony to be over. I hope our applications get at least looked at.. mine was both re-submitted and in queue as of 03/5/18.

I went into queue on March 20th and today the date changed to May 6th, does this mean a decision  is coming?

To me that sounds like a decision may be coming your way

I'm sorry you're in this position. Just for your information, I heard back at 9AM, and it seems that almost everyone else, too, has heard at 9AM. By the way, OASIS only gets updated once a day, so spare yourself the agony of over-checking the website after 9.

You all are so sweet! :) I am very relieved to share that I had an interview this past week. I hope it went well. 

I was informed via email around 2pm I believe. My OASIS account was not updated until the day after. But I agree, in terms of firm admissions or rejection it seems 9am is prime time. 

I will know by next week and genuinely believe (hope) that is when everyone will too. 🙏🏻❤️

Yay!!!  Keeping all my fingers and toes crossed for you!

From what I've seen on here, it seems interviews usually lead to admits.  I know the wait is brutal but hoping it'll be worth it at the end!  Rooting for you, keep us updated.

    • Look, there is only one wrong question to ask about academic misconduct - and it's been asked here many times in the past. Do you really need to disclosure it? The answer is yes. Any time you are asked a direct question about this, you need to answer truthfully. Note that you'll also be asked when you apply to be licensed as a lawyer, assuming you get that far. Now kudos for the fact that you haven't asked that question, because when people do ask it often reveals a mindset that's not entirely in line with legal culture. But beyond answering this question which you haven't asked, no one here can comment definitively at all. I'm mainly answering to provide this context. I'm a criminal defence lawyer. And I'm frequently asked some variation of this question by clients - "will my past mistake stop me from doing X?" Again, it isn't often I have a definitive answer. But I've observed that many people who aren't defence lawyers like to get self-righteous when addressing this topic. It's human nature (though not the best part of human nature) to enjoy seeing other people suffer from mistakes that we ourselves have avoided. The Greeks understood this. And so in answer to an unanswerable question - how much will schools, the law society, etc. choose to care about this - it's likely you are going to get a lot of extreme replies that suggest you've permanently fucked your life. That doesn't make it true. I will observe that law schools have admitted students in the past who have been convicted of serious crimes, and so have law societies. Your individual situation is unique and I won't presume to suggest what will happen. But be honest in reply to any direct question - that's your obligation. How you choose to frame your experiences, or if you choose to highlight them at all beyond this, is entirely your choice. Don't lie about the past, because when you do that it creates new offences of dishonesty. But you also have no obligation to inhabit the identity full-time, as though you are permanently defined by your past. You're entitled to move on. And don't let anyone else imply otherwise. Good luck.
    • Ask for a coffee or lunch instead. Reiterate your interest in them and they should understand.
    • No one would be able to answer whether you have any chances at Canadian law schools or not. If you really reflect on your issues of academic misconduct and you are indeed serous about going to law schools, I would like to say that your personal statements may need to talk about your academic misconduct in the past and discuss how you personally or academically have grown by dealing with these wrongdoings. Good luck!  
    • How do I deal with conflicting dinner invitations?  I will be accepting the dinner with my first choice but I don't want to burn the other firms so early in the process.
    • So..I'll just start from the top. I was enrolled in a 2 year diploma at NAIT (Technical institute) my first semester there I was found guilty of academic misconduct, basically submitted the same assignment as another student (not trying to deny I was guilty) in my last semester of the 2 year diploma I was found guilty for the same thing. The first time I just got a letter on my file and an F on the assignment but the second time I was suspended from the institution for a year and received all F's for that semester on my transcript. This happen in 2014. After that year I enrolled at UofA in a sociology diploma and worked really hard to get a 3.8 (in my last 2 yrs) my cgpa is around 3.2 and an lsat score of 166. I have really good extracurriculars/volunteer experience in the community as well as references -I'm wanting to apply to the university of calgary and university of alberta faculty of law.        I know in most law school apps it asks you about your history with academic dishonesty and i guess what i'm asking is all things considered do i have even the slightest chance? PS guys i'm asking for honest advice PLEASE don't make me feel bad i feel really shitty about what i've done and can honestly say i'm a different person since then and have worked really hard in my undergrad. I've overcome a lot of hardships and personal situations these past few years that have also contributed to that growth (gave birth to my son in my fourth year while attending full time classes and have learned a lot about responsibility!)
