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.

Can anyone who is now remove from the waitlist let me know if it says cancelled on their portal. A friend of mine accepted Windsor and hers is still active on the waitlist.

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.

    • No. It's generally not a good idea to waste valuable real estate on your cover letter explaining poor grades.  First, you may draw their attention to that fact that they may not have noticed. Second, it's undergrad... law school grades take precedence over undergrad. If you did well so far in law school, don't worry about your undergrad grades. Third, there's really no good explanation for bad grades apart from some serious external factor, and very few people can make that claim in a credible way. But again, I wouldn't bother talking about it. Talk about why you would make a good fit for the firm; don't try to explain away why they should overlook bad grades. Some recruiters may (very rarely) suggest a supplemental letter to explain away why you performed poorly academically, but not many do. Visit your counselor for specific advice.
    • I can try and ease some anxieties. I’m 20 and a 1L. The ages range so much and nobody really pays attention or cares. If you have other questions you are welcome to PM me and I can try and help. In my 1.5 months in law school though your age (above or below) the median will not help or hurt you. 
    • What do you mean by two waves? Was this over two days or just same day but some received it a bit earlier than others?  I wonder if other firms do it in waves too. 
    • 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
