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.

    • Its mostly hyperbole for the pace of it part, I don't really see myself holding a tin can and a sign that reads "Will review contracts for Food".  There is nothing wrong of course with teaching fundamental skills. Just borrowing a page from say, physics. They teach fundamental theories and its very important to. But its laterally supplanted with learning how to use sophisticated machinery, and now supplanted with learning how to design and program simulation models. We spend like, an hour a week learning to use Westlaw and Quicklaw which are the tools of yesterday. We learn nothing about how these tools are going to operate. But yes, case summaries have not changed. It literally went unchanged for over a decade. Not for criminal law obviously, but the summaries I looked at were virtually identical to mine in teaching ratios and so-on with the same cases used.  Sorry I seem very bitter and so-on, but I am just kind of frustrated with how archaic law school looks to be entering my second year. 
    • Thanks for taking the time to answer my previous question. I may be applying this cycle and have a question with regards to the Sketch part of the application. When I previously applied to Law School I added every little volunteer/extracurricular from the time I entered University. For simplicity purposes, I wanted to retain only the last 3-4 years of relevant experience. Would this be a problem for an individual that had more sketch items in a previous application 1-2 years ago? For example some activities are not included at all whereas they were on a previous application?  And just for the sake of knowing I guess, would you have access to and look back at a previous application if you were assessing a candidate?  
    • No, I think the bias is good because it makes whiny conservatives like you fill your diaper. Your first thought on hearing the Prime Minister did something racist was run to bump an old thread to try and score points for your “team”, because to you the racism isn’t really the issue, it’s just an opportunity to poke a lib in the eye.
    • I don't think that people are necessarily laughing at the essence of what you are saying.  What you are saying isn't completely crazy.  The pace at which you are suggesting this will all happen is likely, in part, what they are doubting.  The reactions may also be partly attributed to the fact that you haven't (I don't think?) actually practiced law at this point. I just don't think the legal profession will be completely revolutionized as imminently as your comments suggest.  While I (and probably others) can appreciate arguments that computers will replace certain functions currently done by humans and that some of Ryerson's tech-forward training could be helpful (if well executed), I think it will take time to get there.  While I do appreciate the need for lawyers to have more technical skills and to better integrate technology into law schools (whatever that means...I'm old), I don't understand how this translates to what seems to be your critique of the substance of law school (i.e. what is taught not the way it is taught).  I do think that law school, especially 1L, should continue to include the case reading, making legal arguments, etc. that you seem to criticize, both because I can't imagine a scenario where humans interacting with AI technology don't need a baseline level of knowledge of the law and because I don't think these changes are going to come all that quickly.  It is also pretty absurd to claim that summaries from 2003 are "the same".  75% the same?  Sure.  But actually the same?  Doubtful.  Even if they were "the same", that doesn't demonstrate that law school curricula are dated or make them irrelevant.  If that is the current state of the law, then that is the current state of the law.
    • Agreed. Also I’m at UBC (where OP also seems to attend) and I’ve had several recruiters at big firms tell me, unprompted, that we have a great CSO that understands exactly what the firms want. Probably since our CSO people have worked at large firms.  Just wanted to add that since I don’t think it’s helpful for OP to go down the path of thinking an incompetent CSO was his or her issue.
