The same as everyone else, I assume!  I submitted my applications through OLSAS with my personal statement, references, resume, etc.  You don't actually have to put anything in the transcript section in order to submit an application.  Toronto rejected me outright, which was no surprise because they say on their website that in the past 10 years they haven't accepted anyone who doesn't have at least 2 years of an undergrad.  But then Osgoode invited me for an interview, which is apparently pretty common for mature students, and it went very well, in my view, and then they accepted me.  Which is nice, because if I hadn't gotten into law school, my next step was to get my two years of undergrad and apply again. I'd actually also applied and been accepted to Brock University, they were my backup plan and luckily I got to reject their offer in favour of Osgoode's.

Congrats!!

Congrats on the achievement. My god though couldnt imagine attempting law school with no university experience.

Thanks!  I have other work and life experiences that have prepared me, I think the skills will translate (and I guess Osgoode thinks so too, since they accepted me :-) )

Got the email this morning!

cgpa: 3.61

lsat: 160

I've been in queue since early November so I was fairly certain a rejection would be coming shortly. That may give some hope to those of you who have been in queue for a while!

accepted this morning via email after an interview

LSAT - 158

cGPA - 3.43 which includes 2.5 undergrads. I screwed up in my first undergrad. Last 2 is nearly perfect GPA

Strong references.

Truly shows that Osgoode is a holistic school

Went into the queue on December 3 and first notice of interview on April 1

Accepted this morning around 10 a.m via. email/OASIS. Still can't believe it with my stats. I didn't really believe that Osgoode was holistic, but I guess it really is. 

LSAT: 156

cGPA: 3.84 (a bunch of A- brought it down but I never got a B in undergrad) 

4-5 years of legal experience and other ECs throughout undergrad. Strong references. General applicant, not a mature student. 

Also, for those accepted today, has anyone's status updated on OLSAS?

Congrats to everyone here! Nice to see the happy posts. 

To add to the post above about including in-queue date, could you also please include your offer acceptance deadlines as well? It helps those of us still mired in anxiety and speculation. Thanks! 😊

I have not received my offer in the mail yet or on OLSAS, so not sure about the new acceptance deadline. I'll let you know once I know!

    • I did see that. When there's a jarring discrepancy between the thread title and the very first sentence, I'd hardly say that "it's pretty clear" what they're asking.
    • I am also on team "enjoy yourself as much as possible," especially given the pandemic. Work on your hobbies. Paint a painting. Build a model airplane. Finish writing that compendium of 400 limericks about maple syrup you've been working on all year.  That aside, if it's safe for you to do so, consider participating in some kind of volunteering or mutual aid. That might be both a good way to help people who need it right now and also a satisfying way to spend the time. If you want to think about it in terms of law school preparation, it might also give you something to talk about once you start interviewing for clinics and jobs (i.e., shows a drive to help others/ makes you look like you're keen on remaining productive at all times/might help you improve on a skill).  Another thing might be to join any social media groups for your school/cohort and start connecting with your classmates. Might be nice to start to get to know people. You might also meet upper year students that way, who may offer advice and resources for you later in the semester. I just finished 3L at U of T and I'm studying for the bar exams, which means that I'm antsing for a welcome distraction - like the opportunity to sound knowledgeable by sharing school advice. I'm probably not the only one who feels this way. If it turns out I am, feel free to PM me here (or feel free anyways, I'm very open). I wouldn't recommend reading law. There's no shortage of opportunity to do so once the semester begins.
    • Well that’s a silly argument. If the students who will pay increased tuition no longer feel it’s worthwhile to get a degree, they can simply not attend university in the fall. That’s how markets work. If you think something isn’t worth the price, you don’t buy it   Also, I have to imagine some faculty and administrators will be feeling the pain of COVID. There’s no reason to hire sessional lecturers for Bio 100 if you can just collapse all the sections of the course into one large one, taught by one prof. 
    • If the economy into which graduates will compete just shrank 25%, maybe it is incumbent on faculty and administrators to feel some of that pain.
