Osgoode Waitlist 2019

In my opinion, based on what I understand about the process, yes.

That said, if your stats aren't good enough and put you straight into the decline pile, then of course my answer changes to "no, it'd be better for you to be waitlisted", but I think you get what I'm saying.

Thanks for the insight, Ryn.

Is there a certain date when declines begin to go out? For those of us still in queue, is there a potential we are currently in the decline pile but do not yet know it because declines don’t go out until a certain date?

Thank you,

I think they either will have either started by now (I.e. late March) or will start soon. April for sure. 

And yes it’s possible if you’re in queue that you’ve been declined but don’t know it yet.

I received an offer this morning which I will be turning down. Thought I would let y'all know that a spot has opened up. Cheers.

We’re you waitlisted or did you go straight from in queue to receiving an offer?

To be perfectly honest, I was so bombarded with PhD applications when I applied that I never got a chance to sign into OASIS and I have since lost the email containing the relevant info to sign in.

That said, it looks to me that I got an offer without being waitlisted.

For ref:

cGPA: 3.71, LSAT: 160 (January) + Masters

There are still lots of people out there who have not been accepted, rejected or waitlisted, so I would imagine those people need to be dealt with first before those on the waitlist.

Waitlisted on April 12th. Can be considered as a mature/access applicant. Stats are: CGPA 3.78, L2 3.84, LSAT 157 (an accommodated score), MA in History (A- average), and also currently doing a combined Master programs of archival studies and museum studies (A- average).

Other than having been rejected from U of T Law, Osgoode is the second school that informs me of any decisions regarding my application. (I certainly thought that I would be rejected from Osgoode.) Although I have applied to all law schools in Ontario, I have not received any acceptances yet.

Given that tons of strong applicants are placed in Osgoode's waitlist pool, I indeed do not have any high expectations. I am just honored with this waitlist notification; I have already registered the 2019 July LSAT.

Best of luck with all!

I think I got wait listed on April 12?

No email but my portal was updated with this

 

Your file has been added to the wait pool from where new offers of admission will be drawn. Offers will depend on the availability of space in the class and a further review of your file in comparison to others in the pool. While decisions are made as expeditiously as possible, notification of an offer may occur at any time up to the start of classes.

Waitlisted. OASIS updated today at some time before 11am, but it says the decision was made as of April 15th.

LSAT: 165

cGPA: 3.61

B2/L2: 3.80

I’m not sure if being on the waitlist is a good thing or bad thing... Or maybe just a neutral thing. Fingers crossed I guess!

If you've been waitlisted, can you firmly accept another school and still be on the waitlist? Or will that automatically withdraw you from the consideration pool?

I believe when you firmly accept an offer you will no longer be considered for any other school (waitlisted or not).

 I don't think so... Pretty sure it's just a waiting game from there.

    • Hey all, I was looking at the Applicant Info Bulletin 2020-2021, and I noticed I qualify under the individual consideration category as a "mature applicant". While I definitely don't feel mature, I turned 25 in March so technically I qualify. I haven't really had any sizeable hardships at this point, so would it be worth it for me to apply under this category? I've got a self-calculated index of 74.51 (which is on track to go up to a 75+ when I get my fall grades, and I realize fall grades won't be counted if I apply IC), so I think I could get in regularly off the waitlist.  Thanks in advance!
    • I'm not OP but I want to weigh in: Is law school super hard? Depends on who you are and how you study. Some people find it considerably more difficult than others. There's no singular study method that works best. Personally, it hasn't been much harder than my bachelor of arts. Is their cliques? Yes. High school never ends. There are always cliques. There will be cliques in law school and there will be cliques at your future law firm. Do professors actually care? In general, yes. TRU law professors seem to care quite a bit about their students in my experience.
    • That's very subjective and I can't really answer that. It could be any number of things that deviates from the norm. Imagine the norm being applying to law school in your last year of undergrad with nothing but summer retail jobs (there's nothing wrong with retail, it's just not unique) and a few club memberships on your resume. If you're that type of person with an average GPA (70%) and an average LSAT (150), you don't really have a good shot at law school.
    • Got an in-firm from Sangra Moller a week ago in a non-OCI school, Btw would anyone be as so kind to PM about their Vancouver In-firm experience?
    • anyone hear back regarding offers from any non-OCI firms or other firms yet in Vancouver?
