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.

    • Thank you guys! Best of luck in the admissions cycle.  
    • Look, there is only one wrong question to ask about academic misconduct - and it's been asked here many times in the past. Do you really need to disclosure it? The answer is yes. Any time you are asked a direct question about this, you need to answer truthfully. Note that you'll also be asked when you apply to be licensed as a lawyer, assuming you get that far. Now kudos for the fact that you haven't asked that question, because when people do ask it often reveals a mindset that's not entirely in line with legal culture. But beyond answering this question which you haven't asked, no one here can comment definitively at all. I'm mainly answering to provide this context. I'm a criminal defence lawyer. And I'm frequently asked some variation of this question by clients - "will my past mistake stop me from doing X?" Again, it isn't often I have a definitive answer. But I've observed that many people who aren't defence lawyers like to get self-righteous when addressing this topic. It's human nature (though not the best part of human nature) to enjoy seeing other people suffer from mistakes that we ourselves have avoided. The Greeks understood this. And so in answer to an unanswerable question - how much will schools, the law society, etc. choose to care about this - it's likely you are going to get a lot of extreme replies that suggest you've permanently fucked your life. That doesn't make it true. I will observe that law schools have admitted students in the past who have been convicted of serious crimes, and so have law societies. Your individual situation is unique and I won't presume to suggest what will happen. But be honest in reply to any direct question - that's your obligation. How you choose to frame your experiences, or if you choose to highlight them at all beyond this, is entirely your choice. Don't lie about the past, because when you do that it creates new offences of dishonesty. But you also have no obligation to inhabit the identity full-time, as though you are permanently defined by your past. You're entitled to move on. And don't let anyone else imply otherwise. Good luck.
    • Ask for a coffee or lunch instead. Reiterate your interest in them and they should understand.
    • No one would be able to answer whether you have any chances at Canadian law schools or not. If you really reflect on your issues of academic misconduct and you are indeed serous about going to law schools, I would like to say that your personal statements may need to talk about your academic misconduct in the past and discuss how you personally or academically have grown by dealing with these wrongdoings. Good luck!  
    • How do I deal with conflicting dinner invitations?  I will be accepting the dinner with my first choice but I don't want to burn the other firms so early in the process.
