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.

    • How do you handle losing cases? Do you get better over time at trying to keep it in perspective, and learning for next time? Is there any way to shut off the spiral of self-doubt?  It’s one thing to acknowledge that every court application is a calculated risk, and that you weigh the pros and cons with the client in advance, and that you’ve decided to take your chances. At some level, though, you believed that the outcome would come out in your favour (especially as the Plaintiff), otherwise you would have accepted a settlement. The rumination on “maybe I should have said this” or “maybe I should have told the client that” or “maybe I should have accepted a settlement” or “maybe if I were a better/smarter/more experienced/more confident lawyer this would have gone differently” or “maybe I just fuck up the lives of people who trust me” keeps me up for weeks and the impact of any losses outweighs 100x the impact of any wins. 
    • This is strictly anecdotal but I know of at least 1 2L in the past year who was a BC transfer. 
    • On test day, I was under so much pressure that my brain went on auto-pilot and my ability to methodically break down each question went out the window, even though I'd spent hundreds of hours studying similar questions at home. If your goal is to start law school in 2020, I think it'd be well worth it for you to experience that pressure before the do-or-die January exam. 
    • Waitlisted today for the English common law program, I'll probably take myself off the waitlist since I firmly accepted at another school a long time ago.  cGPA: 3.57 L2: 3.61 LSAT: 162
