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.

    • I'm currently taking my gap year working in a field related to my degree in business. If I had the necessary LSAT mark to get in this year, I likely would've just gone straight into law to be honest. But, as I sit here now, I think it may actually be more beneficial to me in the end to take this gap year for 3 main reasons: 1) Gain valuable experience working in a professional field. I also think working in a professional field will strengthen my application, as I currently do not have a lot of EC's. 2) $$$ - making money over this gap year will certainly be a big help when it comes time to pay for law school 3) Allows me to explore a job related to my degree to see whether it is something that I would be interested in pursuing further in the future. I don't know exactly what your degree is in, but who knows, maybe you'll get a job related to your degree and find that you enjoy it so much that you'd rather put off law school entirely or at least for another few years I definitely don't think taking a year off lowers your chances of getting in. If anything it strengthens your chances (obviously being dependent on what you're doing with your year off). For example: I imagine volunteering, working in a professional field, and taking part in other positive EC's would all be looked upon favourably by the admissions committee. I think it all just depends on what you do during your gap year. In the end, would I likely have gone straight into law if I had the LSAT mark? Yes. However, looking at it now, I think taking this gap year will certainly be more beneficial to me in the long-run.
    • I articled in a boutique commercial real estate law firm, but received more experience in litigation vs. solicitor work. I’m interested in solicitor work, but the particular firm I articled at didn’t have much work to give me except in litigation. I have some experience in drafting commercial leases, a residential agreement of purchase and sale, and other commercial agreements (e.g licenses and telecommunication access agreements) and I assisted in title review of a large commercial deal - but that’s about it. I’ve been applying for associate positions for awhile, but they all want 2-3 years of transactional experience. Should I give up and focus on applying for litigation jobs (where I have more experience)? Does anyone have experience being hired in commercial real estate with minimum experience? I’d really appreciate some insight into this from anyone with experience in commercial real estate. I’ve been networking, and the firm I articled at gave me good reference letters, but they’re not really willing to go the extra mile and refer me to contacts they know of (and I’ve asked / hinted). So now I’m wondering if I should give up the search and apply for litigation positions, even though practicing in commercial real estate is my dream. Any advice?
