Email received that they are reviewing my application

Recommended Posts

Don't recall getting this last cycle. In any event: 

"Thank you for applying to the Faculty of Law at the University of Windsor. This letter is to inform you that we have received your application to our Juris Doctor program, class of 2022. Our admissions committee is reviewing your application carefully.

Windsor Law recently celebrated 50 years of teaching, research, advocacy and service. Since our start in 1968, Windsor Law has been dedicated to educating ethical, justice-seeking lawyers. Today, we continue to offer an enriching and inclusive law school experience where thought and action inspire a community that is passionate about achieving a more just and equitable world.

We take a student-focused approach to learning and critiquing law, working with marginalized people in Windsor and beyond through our clinics and externships, looking at the whole person in our admissions process, and providing a rigorous and dynamic legal education to our students. Our law school prides itself on preparing graduates for leadership and rounded success in every area of legal practice and beyond.

Windsor Law is a bridge for the study of transnational law (embracing our border city location, a significant comparative advantage), along with other disciplines including business and social work, and between law on the books and law in action in our communities.

Should your application be selected, you will be invited to join a people-centred law school, one which which houses over fifty student and faculty-initiated groups outside of the classroom. Together these groups boost Windsor Law’s commitment to our community and to your future experience as a legal professional."

Yup! Got this as well. They're probably JUST starting to review applications and wanted to let everyone know.

I'm curious if it was sent to every applicant or if it was just sent to those that are referred. 

I only applied to the Dual JD, but as of right now I didn't get this email.

I did however get a "Seasons Greetings" email...

I received it this morning and was referred to admissions a few weeks ago. If this is their way of letting us know that they are just beginning to review the files, does this mean we won't expect to hear back until January?

Is there any difference between "referred for review" (this is what it says for me) and "referred to admissions"? 😕

I'm not sure quite honestly. I think last year it was just "referred to admissions committee" and this year, mine says "referred for review." Perhaps it's the same thing. Does anyone's actually say, "referred to admissions committee?"

That's a good question, I think people are using the two interchangeably and I'm overthinking it all LOL

Mine says referred - admissions committee. Lsat and transcript are missing from the to do list now and the date says 12/10/2019. This happened a few weeks ago for mine and others, but if they are just beginning to review applications who knows it may just be the system.

Mine says Referred - Admissions Committee. I would assume that anyone stating they are referred to AdCom would have the same.

I am in the same boat as you.

Considering the above responses, perhaps not.

    • You may want to look into the transfer process. It's not the easiest to transfer from the certificate to the law program as UdM reserves a small portion of the incoming class for those students. 
    • Well, maybe not much. Not knowing anything about the lawyer or the practice I'll make some assumptions in typing the below.  You'd benefit from practicing in association with someone established and you'd have access to their resources. Presumably, their office will refer a bunch of your clients to you, you can rely on the lawyer for mentorship, and you'll enjoy not having to rent your own office, incur your own startup costs, and figure a bunch of startup-y things out on your own. In the short term, as a new call you might enjoy the association as you'll have some amount support and work-flow in your direction. By year #2 or #3 you might look at the fee-split and start to wonder why someone else is making money on your labour.  I don't think there really is a normal for small/solo firms and these employment/association relationships. They really run the spectrum from employer-employee to two people that just share a roof. Many factors. 
    • My new OSAP estimate came in, and it is about $11,000 less than what I would have qualified for if my 1L classes were taking place in-person this fall/winter. This seems ridiculous because tuition at Osgoode is not decreasing (still north of $25K), and my living expenses have increased (food prices have gone up, and now I need a full home office set-up for law school, plus rent payments, etc). Not only that, but my summer employer has had me on "unpaid standby," and I haven't been able to locate any other meaningful or suitable work during the pandemic.   Is it fair for OSAP to now be drastically cut because law schools are going virtual this year? If loans/grants are being cut, then it follows that tuition/books/living costs should also decrease. However, that is nowhere near the case. In many instances, expenses are on the rise. What gives, OSAP?!
