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.

    • Register for the exam, then all you have to do is email them that you're taking that exam (or indicate in your application) and they will hold off until January; schools don't even reject until way later.
    • I went from scoring pretty low on LG to -1/-2 by: 1. Reading the powerscore LG bible  2. Drilling LG by type (grouping, linear, hybrid) untimed and then timed 3. Drilling full timed sections, watching the 7sage explanation for each game and re-doing the ones where I missed inferences! I hope that helps! Good luck
    • I did the same thing. Could not find time to study at all.
    • I won't discuss this point further with either you or @QuincyWagstaff as you have seemingly no desire to change your ways. This is unfortunate and we all lose out. For others, perhaps more interested in learning about things, statistical significance can be found in any non-zero correlation given a sufficient sample size despite the differentiation that QW distinguishes as being an important one. It is something that has also given rise to the term "practical significance", to which QW and CH appear to be unware of. To put is succinctly, the difference between significant and insignificant is not itself significant.  Edit -Then again, I am on the spectrum. So maybe it's that.  
    • Hey, so I'm planning to retake the LSAT in Jan and wondering if i should include an addendum saying I'm retaking in Jan, was not able to do as well on my initial test. I have not registered for the Jan test, I'm just scared they'll pass my application after seeing my score. I did indicate on OLSAS that I intend to take the Jan test, but have not physically registered for it yet.
