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..

    • Hey all, Was hoping for some input on this as I've seen contradictory things and could use some advice. I've lived in Ontario my whole life and for various reasons am going almost certainly going to want to practice in Ontario after I finish schooling. I am however sick and tired of this place, and would love to spend the three years of law school in the glorious place that is British Columbia. I'm 99% sure I have the grades/lsat to get into UBC, but is it advisable to go to school across the country from where I plan to practice? I luckily have some sort of network here in Ontario already (Friend's family has a close relationship with a firm that operates in the exact field of law I'll likely be practicing in) but I'd rather not rely on that and would like some input. Thanks in advance, sorry if this topic has been beaten to death but I'm either a moron or searching things is kinda hard here.  .
    • Hey guys! so unfortunately I was rejected to the schools I applied to for sept 2019 and will be re-applying. I am wondering if in my personal statement I should mention that I applied last year and what I have been doing since my last application that makes me different. Is it worth mentioning or would it be a red flag for admissions to read a personal statement that says I’ve already been rejected prior. Any info on this will help! Thanks guys!
    • Hi everyone, Today I have been opening up/ getting ready to open applications in 6 Canadian Law Schools, UVIC being one of them. I don't know why I expected there to be a place where they would ask for a resume/CV from me. But so far I haven't really seen such places on the applications I have opened. Is this normal? If so, do schools typically just want me to include all extra curricular/ achievements in my personal statement?  Don't know anyone else applying for Law school so any input is appreciated.  If needed for reference I am applying to UVIC, UBC, U of A, U of C, TRU, U of Sask. 
    • Thanks so much for the reply! That's good to know.
    • An A average on a dud candidate that doesn’t fit with the firm isn’t getting hired over the B average student with an infectious personality whom everyone loves.  An A average will assist with tied applicants between that particular student and a B+ student or anyone below that. It’s fairly intuitive. No one will or can provide advice as to exactly how much emphasis is being placed on what at each firm. It’s a contextual decision based on the students grades, personality, and how that meshes with the particular firm.
