Osgoode Acceptance Criteria Compared to Other Schools

Recommended Posts

I'm just curious about whether Osgoode's acceptance criteria differ significantly from those of other Canadian schools. It seems as though what are essentially the same essays and definitely the same stats has led other schools like UBC and the U of T to send out responses when Osgoode hasn't in my case. I've also noticed on the thread that Osgoode has already been placing people on a waitlist when it is early January. Although I will not be attending Osgoode, any insights or hypotheses about Osgoode's admissions criteria compared to other schools could be interesting.

I have nothing to add, but if it helps I’m in the exact same boat! I’ve heard back from every other school I’ve applied to on the very first day of acceptances (U of T, Queens, Western and Ottawa) but still nothing from Osgoode! Your stats are amazing though, so that definitely makes me feel better that I haven’t heard back yet either!

Did you provisionally accept another school? I have gotten into Oz, Ottawa, McGill, u of t but nothing from queens nor western. I find this odd because I am, like you a bit above the stats of a lot of accepted students. 

To me, this means they saw my provisional acceptance to u of t. I mean it could also be that my letter sucks or something. 

Just based on my case, I don’t think they differ significantly.

Osgoode's presumptive admit threshold for the 2016 cycle was a GPA at or above 3.75 and an LSAT at or above the 80th percentile.

This most likely is not changed so you should be in in the first round.

Were you in queue yet?

If not there are possibilities they may not have your completed documents on hand at that time.

    • @easttowest Do you know if there is any advantage (scrutiny-wise) between the two categories? I've applied access and am one year out from being able to apply mature as well (as I was enrolled "full-time" in grad studies while working my first few years full-time, so it delayed that 5 year out of school period). I'm not asking to try and cheat the system in any way--just trying to assess whether I have a better shot this year or next with the mature box checked off. 
    • I'm fairly certain that nothing but press statements have come out. Nothing substantive for colleges and universities to work with.  
    • They're still processing since it seems the bulk of the people Doug Ford consulted with on this are racists and alt-right members.
    • I was accepted around Jan 9/10 and neglected to post until now! cGPA: 3.85 according to OLSAS L2: 3.89 LSAT: 162 ECs: so weak someone told me not to apply to law school 🤷‍♀️ Entirely undecided about what to do about accepting offers as of right now
    • Accepted Dec 19, couldn't believe how early I heard back since I wrote November LSAT! I've no idea what this queue is. cGPA: 3.85 according to OLSAS L2: 3.89 LSAT: 162 LORs: 1 likely very good, 1.. not so great ECs: honestly so bad that someone told me to not even apply to law school, but they include: working part time during school, coaching, an international summer course, and 1 year of school cheerleading .. yikes.    High odds I'm not accepting because of how expensive this will be, but I'm pretty proud of myself anyways, and proud of all the people who worked hard to get in so far!!!
