Has anyone asked if we are allowed to submit our Winter semester grades? Mine bring up my cGPA considerably so I was hoping they might take them into consideration.

You have to submit your winter grades to OLSAS. Not sure if they consider them tho

I spoke to someone from the admissions staff at Osgoode last week and she said for many of the people still waiting winter grades will be duly considered

Given that the recent round of offers expire May 14th, I'd say there's a good chance of hearing back near the end of May. Depends on your place on the waitlist though.

But I heard we’re not ranked :( we’ll just be re-evaluated compared to others on the waitlist. 

 

Saw on the 2017 forum that some people who got waitlisted May 9 were accepted May 12. Maybe there’s some hope. 

 

Congrats on your acceptance, btw!

Thanks!

But I suppose being re-evaluated compared to others on the waitlist is a way of ranking no? Sure you won't know your position but the adcom must in some capacity.

Can everyone who has been accepted include when they got on the waitlist and when they were accepted off the waitlist. Also would be helpful if you could let us know if you were  interviewed as well. Thanks!

    • I'm currently taking my gap year working in a field related to my degree in business. If I had the necessary LSAT mark to get in this year, I likely would've just gone straight into law to be honest. But, as I sit here now, I think it may actually be more beneficial to me in the end to take this gap year for 3 main reasons: 1) Gain valuable experience working in a professional field. I also think working in a professional field will strengthen my application, as I currently do not have a lot of EC's. 2) $$$ - making money over this gap year will certainly be a big help when it comes time to pay for law school 3) Allows me to explore a job related to my degree to see whether it is something that I would be interested in pursuing further in the future. I don't know exactly what your degree is in, but who knows, maybe you'll get a job related to your degree and find that you enjoy it so much that you'd rather put off law school entirely or at least for another few years I definitely don't think taking a year off lowers your chances of getting in. If anything it strengthens your chances (obviously being dependent on what you're doing with your year off). For example: I imagine volunteering, working in a professional field, and taking part in other positive EC's would all be looked upon favourably by the admissions committee. I think it all just depends on what you do during your gap year. In the end, would I likely have gone straight into law if I had the LSAT mark? Yes. However, looking at it now, I think taking this gap year will certainly be more beneficial to me in the long-run.
    • I articled in a boutique commercial real estate law firm, but received more experience in litigation vs. solicitor work. I’m interested in solicitor work, but the particular firm I articled at didn’t have much work to give me except in litigation. I have some experience in drafting commercial leases, a residential agreement of purchase and sale, and other commercial agreements (e.g licenses and telecommunication access agreements) and I assisted in title review of a large commercial deal - but that’s about it. I’ve been applying for associate positions for awhile, but they all want 2-3 years of transactional experience. Should I give up and focus on applying for litigation jobs (where I have more experience)? Does anyone have experience being hired in commercial real estate with minimum experience? I’d really appreciate some insight into this from anyone with experience in commercial real estate. I’ve been networking, and the firm I articled at gave me good reference letters, but they’re not really willing to go the extra mile and refer me to contacts they know of (and I’ve asked / hinted). So now I’m wondering if I should give up the search and apply for litigation positions, even though practicing in commercial real estate is my dream. Any advice?
    • If your stats are accurate, you're safe applying to your top 3 and saving money by not applying to the rest.
    • Id gamble my entire PSLOC you'll get in at U of A
