Osgoode Waitlist 2019

Recommended Posts

Has anyone called/emailed Osgoode for more info about the waitlist/when we might hear back/how full the class is, etc., that you can share? Every day is just giving me the worst anxiety :(

Hey everyone, I wanted to let you all know that I was accepted off of the waitlist this Monday (May 14th), so there is hope! I had given up but moving off of the waitlist can happen!

Does anyone have any insights into what the chances of being accepted off the waitlist are? Seems like there's a numbered ranking at Ottawa that gives people a good idea if they're going to get in or not. Do many people get in from the Osgoode waitlist over the course of the summer?

I feel like it's hard to say. It seems as though the past week or so there has been quite a few people pulled from the waitlist, but if you look at last years thread it doesn't look like there was much movement after May. So, based on last year it does not seem too promising, but it seems like they are a little behind this year compared to last year (I assume because of the later LSAT dates) so there may be some hope still.

Hey friends-

I was added to the waitlist in April. Does anyone know if we ever get rejected, or we just wait it out until there's no spots left? It's so hard to plan when I might still get in.

Also, if you're accepted from the waitlist please post it, so I know when they hand out offers! Apparently they do it in batches.

Based on previous years threads, I don't think they ever send out rejections for those on the waitlist. Also based on previous threads, they don't accept many more people in batches at this point. Their program is likely full at this point and just a matter of people who have accepted/provisionally accepted backing out.

I called Osgoode today and they said the class is not full, but they’re getting there. As for movement on the waitlist, it depends on what the last batch of acceptances choose to do as well as how many people confirm their spot through their deposit. They said we may see movement this week/next week.

Pretty much. Maybe 1-3 spots max will become available. My friend from 2L/3L told me the class is basically full. 😖 I can’t say more to protect this individuals privacy.

They are pulling off the waitlist but how many depends on what the folks with the current offers do with theirs.

That said, the class is almost basically full, so I wonder why they’re still waitlisting people. They already have quite a few in the queue.

I emailed them. They said the wait pool is very large. I don’t see much movement. Last time they made an offer off the waitlist was May 13-15th. It’s been dead since. Unless you had an interview and did not end up waitlisted, I haven’t seen any offers..

    • The advantage is that if you don’t get in through the IC category you still get a chance at the index category. Also, for IC they don’t put any weight to your GPA or LSAT score — they consider your application as a whole. 
    • Hey all,   I'm a 1L, starting to think about recruits and stressed about the amount of firms that ask for your undergrad transcripts. I didn't perform well in my first 2 years of undergrad and am scared it will reflect poorly on me for recruits. Do firms place a lot of emphasis on undergrad grades? Should I address the low marks of my first 2 years in my cover letter? Thanks in advance for the help 
    • 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.
