Was waitlisted May 23rd, Accepted May 31. 

Had provisionally accepted elsewhere, will be firm accepting Osgoode. 

Congratulations @vakeel and thanks for letting us know. :) 🙏🏻

 

Once again ... Movement is extremely unlikely. I spoke to the admissions office on May 31st in the afternoon. As mentioned in an earlier post she emphasized the wait pool is very large... and if any movement happened it would have happened already since June 1 has passed. 

The Facebook group is almost at 190, we can assume the rest of the students don’t use Facebook (myself included), I had to use a friends account 😅. So those people who did get offers off the waitlist are not in this group. Only ~40 of us are on this waitlist thread. 

People who have been admitted either on or off waitlist, made an account after the fact. I am not trying to be a negative Nancy, but it’s important to have realistic expectations and plan accordingly. 

I also have strong sources who confirmed that “only 2 people were given offers in July (2017/2018) during that cycle.”

Therefore, it is likely that those people who did get offers off the waitlist are NOT in this group. Only ~40 of us are on this waitlist thread. 

People who have been recently admitted either on OR off waitlist, made an account AFTER the fact.

I am not trying to be a negative Nancy, but it’s important to have realistic expectations and plan accordingly. 😔

Has anyone been rejected from the waitlist yet?

I don't know for sure, but I don't think they reject off the waitlist. Classes just eventually start and you're either in by that time or not.

What about people who are still in queue (not rejected, not admitted, not wait-listed)?

Who will still be on the waitlist after July 3rd? (Aka everyone who hasn’t provisionally accepted elsewhere).

 

 I guess react to this post so we don’t spam everyone with mini heart attacks.

Do you think you’re actually still on the waitlist though?

Doubtful, I accepted another school and my Oasis updated acknowledging so. It's possible they just didn't get around to doing it for everyone that it applied to.

My OASIS updated on July 19th saying I’ve been removed from the waitlist due to accepting another offer. Bummed my Osgoode dreams are over but grateful to be going to law school. Wishing everyone still on the waitlist all the best :( my fingers are crossed for you! Hopefully this opens another spot for you all.

    • Hello! I was looking for some information/opinions/thoughts on attending a lower T14 American Law school as an international student versus attending UofT. It seems that existing threads on this topic are with T6 American schools, so HYSCCN and the general view is they beat UofT.  However what about lowerT14 schools? Like Penn, or Michigan or Georgetown? T6 is a bit of a reach for me, so my real choice is between the bottom 8 and UofT. Has anyone else faced this same decision?  Location is not too important to me, I wouldn't mind practicing in Toronto or New York. I understand that tuition is a huge factor, but from what I've read, UofT is overpriced for what it offers, so I'm willing to take on larger debt to attend the US, especially with a higher earning potential and ability to pay it back afterwards. However, if anyone also has resources for financial aid for international students, that would also be helpful! Does anyone also have any resources/information on working in the US as a non-citizen? If I graduate an American law school, is it guaranteed that I can work at a firm in the US?   Thanks! Super keen to hear your thoughts
    • The request has to be made through OLSAS’s website. They’ll auto update it when they receive and process the transcripts. Then they’ll forward it to schools automatically. 
    • Yeah i will be applying to Norton, McCarthy, BCF and other Quebec firms as well. But since i wanted to practice in Montreal (I grew up there), I don't know how easy it would be to transfer from Quebec to Montreal in the future (If i have the chance of being accepted of course). Thanks for your answer!
    • Thank you! I am not entirely sure on where I will be accepting (as I have also applied to the University of Alberta and also Calgary's MPP). I wrote the July 2019 LSAT and finished my application just days before the original deadline.
