Just got accepted today via email! Here's allll the info:

3.43 cGPA, 3.9 L2  (first semester at a university I transferred out of was rough)

164 LSAT October / 160 LSAT January

Filled out Part B for equity and diversity. Masters degree, international student, decent but probably not great EC + PS.  

Initially went into queue in November but it reset when I took the January LSAT (which ended up being a worse score lol). I had an interview on March 27th 

if you dont mind sharing, what did they ask you during the interview?

Mostly about my grades at my first university, which is what I expected. They also had some general stock interview questions like, "Tell us about yourself," "Talk about a time you were in a leadership position..." "Tell us about a time you faced a challenging situation. How did you handle it?" etc.

Or how many people are in the Osgoode Facebook group? Are the people in that group the ones who have accepted their offer of admission or just have been given an offer?

There's like 70 people in the facebook group right now. From what I can tell it's comprised of people who were offered admission, not excursive to those who accepted Osgoode.

Thanks. 

The interview was conducted in a very friendly manner. I was supposed to speak about my previous experience, my ability to study again, provided I've been out of formal academic environment for more than 10 years. Took about 30 min there and 6 days to get the letter.

Just got my offer yesterday morning!  I am a mature student with 163 LSAT score and have never been to university so I have no other stats.  I had an interview on April 17 so it took me 6 days to hear back (and that was with the long weekend).  Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear news.

Congrats on that LSAT score! But never been to university? How does the application work for you?

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.

    • I've mentored high school students who were considering this program, and I like to think that I saved their careers. It is a huge money grab. I got into a heated argument once with an admissions officer from the program, who was telling high school students that Laurier was ahead of other schools in the "law" area, by breaking down barriers and creating a tailored partnership program that would allow them to bypass the numerous "barriers" in Canada to become lawyers in a quicker and easier fashion. And they were arguing that there is a demand for lawyers in Ontario/Canada and this program was created to help service that demand. Plus what else can beat the international experience of studying in the UK, right? Go figure.  It's incredibly sad how this program and the one at Trent (https://www.trentu.ca/futurestudents/degree/law-arts-law-business-trentswansea-dual-degree-llb-babba?target=undergraduate) were created to target naive high schoolers. I understand targeting university students, but children? Please. 
    • This program is a massive money grab – totally not worth it. There is a chance you might not even want to be a lawyer by the time the Sussex part rolls around (as mentioned by @Turtles), and on top of that foreign degrees just aren't worth it, especially if you are still in grade 12.  OP's parents, for the love of God, please let your child attend an undergraduate institution and pursue a degree of their choice. If they want to pursue law, get your undergrad degree, get good grades, write the LSAT, and then apply to a law school in Canada if that is still what you want when you graduate. 
    • Hey, I saw on your post history that you were a UWO student (I am as well!). Western doesn't have any letter grades on its transcripts but only percentages, so I was worried about how LSAC would convert my % grades into my GPA. when you were applying to US schools, did LSAC conversions screw you over or did they convert according to the link you've posted here? according to the link you posted a 80-89% at UWO is a 4.0, which honestly sounds a little good to be true. is the website link accurate? does LSAC really convert an 80-89% to a 4.0?
    • Thank you! No, I did not.
    • Congratulations on being admitted!  Did you have a French interview?
