I've never created a thread so I hope I'm doing this right! But my application went into the queue on the 12th and I received my acceptance this morning! These are my stats:

LSAT - 163

GPA - 8.8 (it's the uOttawa grading scale, so I'm not sure what that translates into on other scales)

I also had 2 really great reference letters so that might have helped! & I'm not sure if there's any other info I should include here...

I hope everyone hears back soon! 😊

Congrats @jrfyfe, but I really need another person to substantiate this with an acceptance. York said nothing until December so this is weird.

If I could insert a picture of the acceptance I would 😊 I was surprised too

@jrfyfe Was it an e-mail? 

It was an email, but on OASIS it said my acceptance date was yesterday, so your status may be accepted before you get the email.

Accepted

Unsure of when my app went into queue, but accepted this morning. Although on my OASIS it says the offer was made on 11-14.

LSAT: 167

GPA: 8.7 uOttawa, my guess is that its around 3.87 cGPA

Does anyone have their offers updated on OLSAS yet? Mine hasn't had anything shown up yet.

Bsc graduating this may, some research, not a lot of ECs.

 

Good luck to everyone waiting!

Found out via email this morning that I've been accepted, still in a bit of disbelief (but very happy). Osgoode is one of my top choices and what I thought would be the most difficult to get accepted to out of the schools I applied, so I'm ecstatic.

 

Current cumulative GPA: 3.961/4.000

LSAT: 85th percentile (162)

B.A./B.Sc. combined degree, graduating at the end of the winter semester.

Decent extracurrics + work experience, I have one peer-reviewed journal article on research I did a few summers ago, too.

Best of luck to all those who applied!

Accepted this morning! 160/162 and 3.99/4.0. I will probably be declining once I hear back from the schools I really want. That should free up space for someone else. Good luck!

I know nobody likes the numbers games, but it seems that the higher GPAs seem to be getting scooped up first. Most in this thread are 3.9+. Just a thought. Congratulations to all of us :)

I got an offer this morning. GPA 3.7, LSAT 163. So not necessarily true!

Congratulations!! Still very impressive numbers! I guess the decisions are more holistic than I give them credit for. Either way we all must have impressed them in some way.

    • 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!)
