Just got the call today!

162 LSAT (Writing again in January) 

3.28 cGPA; 3.55 L2 (These will be improving once my fall marks become official)

Decent personal statements, ECs, and references but I didn't think they were spectacular, although I did have a lot about small town as I grew up in a small town and most of my ECs are within this town. 

General Category 

Can't believe I got the call with my stats. Also can't believe they didn't wait a week to receive my fall grades. Best of luck to everyone else with lower grades!

Kind of confused about this admission process, how are people being accepted off of the wait list but I haven't heard back at all yet? No email, nothing on OLSAS. Would this be because I wrote the LSAT in January?

cGPA - 3.53, L2 - 3.7, LSAT - 166

EDIT: I have provisionally accepted an offer from Western, but wished to be considered for all of my other choices. Not sure if this should have an effect.

Can anyone that recently got accepted in April see the offer on OLSAS yet? 

Not yet! The person I spoke with on the phone said there is some delay but said it would be up around last Thursday. I also sent them an email Friday to let them know I still haven't receive it on OLSAS so I'll keep you up to date with what they say!

    • So, to bring in another associated axis of questioning, would it fair to say that the Vancouver market has an edge over Toronto in terms of either quality or quality of AB law work (big law or otherwise)? (of course, acknowledging that many places have strong AB law markets, including "T.dot"). My impression was always that Van was "where it is at" regarding AB law.
    • The Common Law Section has not specified that payment for deposit should be received by June 1st. You even emailed the Common Law Section your proof of payment. I think that you should be okay. Have a restful weekend!
    • I think Israel-Palestine is likely an exception to this. People on both sides of the conflict have incredibly strong opinions about this, such that arguing for or against one side is often viewed as on par with arguing for genocide/other crimes against humanity by the other. I would be wary of having any public comments regarding the issue, even if I knew enough about the conflict to have a truly educated and well reasoned opinion.  For other issues of less existential importance, I would generally agree. Although if you’re trying to work at BJs in O&G and your google results show you’ve protested every pipeline ever proposed, that’s going to raise some flags. 
    • I think it can possibly work against you, if you took a pro-Palestinian stance, depending on the firm. During 2L, I went through the OCI process, and had many in-firm interviews. One firm told me they were going to offer me the job (I know a violation of the Rules). On offer call day I received no offer from them. I was fortunate that another firm I was interested in offered me a job, but I called a partner at the first firm to ask what happened. It was a little like pulling teeth to get a straight answer from him, but I pressed him and finally he told me they had Googled my name and some people on the hiring committee had a problem because I had signed a petition condemning anti BDS legislation in some American states.  
    • So I made my deposit on Friday evening because silly me thought that I had already made it on Tuesday. By luck I checked my online banking and realized my money had not gone through(!!!).  anyways, do you think it should be okay? Or do they count payment received date instead? I even emailed them proof that my payment had been done on Friday.
