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.

    • Hey guys,  I have a couple of questions. I know basics about the gpa conversion (the chart they use -4.33 scale) but I'm a little confused on the number of credits drops in my case, as I took some credit/nocredit courses with no percentage/grades given. I have 135 credits in terms of graded ones (I did a fifth year) but I have 144 total credits.  If I drop 6 half year credits my GPA works out to 3.78/4.33 If I drop 8 half year credits, my GPA works out to 3.85/4.33 If I drop 10 half year credits, GPA is 3.90/4.33 My LSAT is a 163. Does anyone know how many credits I would be able to drop in my situation and also what my chances would be? I can't seem to find answers in the threads or when I call the office its opaque Thank you
    • I dont really think its a problem. I took psych 100 and a 200 level course in my final semester. 
    • There is an environmental law class, and there's an environmental law club that organizes negotiation competitions involving mock 3-party negotiations between a government, a corporation, and a local community. Students also go to UBC every year to participate in a TRU/UBC/Uvic environmental law negotiation competition. Last year TRU sent multiple teams and took home 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
    • Does anyone know how long it takes for schools to receive your lsat score after you finish the written portion? 
    • A more thorough response now that I have a minute.  No one whatsoever would question why you are applying to Ottawa for health law such that you have to justify it by talking about being close to federal institutions (which doesn't make a ton of sense anyway since much more health policy is done at the provincial level) and explaining that the tuition is lower.  Ottawa is, unquestionably, the strongest school for health law in Ontario.  It isn't even close.  The UofT used to be strong in health law, but due to departures, retirements, etc., the program is a mere shell of what it used to be.  If you look at the list of faculty now, it is Trudo Lemmens and two people who are retired.  And if you look at the purported list of courses, they list anything even vaguely relevant to health law, including administrative law and patents.  Those aren't health law classes.  As for Osgoode, they don't have much of anything relevant to JDs.  They have a professional LLM in health law and a certificate program that is not for current JD students.  Looking at their current list of JD courses, they have Disability and the Law taught by an adjunct, Environmental Law, which no one considers health law, Health Law taught by two adjuncts, Law and Psychiatry taught by two adjuncts, and Patents, which no one considers health law (and the guy teaching it doesn't specialize in pharma patents anyway).  They do have a couple of people who do health law but aren't teaching or whose work is only tangentially related to health law.
