Waitlisted at Calgary 2019

Recommended Posts

I received my wait list email in early December. I am wondering if anyone else was waitlisted and was accepted off it yet?

Waitlisted today via email 

cGPA: 3.5 

L2: 3.7? I'm not too sure

LSAT: 160

I am applying without my full degree (currently have seven classes left after this spring 2019 semester) so I am happy to be on the waitlist for my top pick school. I have a previous university certificate and really solid EC's and LORs. Now, to wait!

Waitlisted today via email-
OLSAS CGPA 3.1, L2 3.7 /4.0 (I believe?) 
LSAT 163

The email was very politely worded which was nice. I was actually expecting a full rejection (still do) so this is a very pleasant surprise.

waitlisted on Jan 18 

LSAT 160 

L2 : 3.5 

pretty average EC and work experience. Tailored my PS quite a bit for Calgary though ( i dont know if that helped or not) 

Does anyone know how many people actually get off the waitlist? I checked the 2018 waitlist thread for Calgary and couldnt find any posts that stated someone had gotten off the wait list

    • Are you going to be living at home during the school year or renting? I would assume that would have the biggest impact on funding. Or did you make a decent amount of money last year? I got my estimate and it was more than last year (17k), which is definitely the max. Are you saying you were only estimated for 6k total?  Also, what do you mean new estimate? Did you have an initial OSAP estimate and it was recalculated based on classes being online?  I really don't think the distance learning aspect will cause a significant decrease since, as you mentioned, tuition is staying the same. 
    • You may want to look into the transfer process. It's not the easiest to transfer from the certificate to the law program as UdM reserves a small portion of the incoming class for those students. 
    • Well, maybe not much. Not knowing anything about the lawyer or the practice I'll make some assumptions in typing the below.  You'd benefit from practicing in association with someone established and you'd have access to their resources. Presumably, their office will refer a bunch of your clients to you, you can rely on the lawyer for mentorship, and you'll enjoy not having to rent your own office, incur your own startup costs, and figure a bunch of startup-y things out on your own. In the short term, as a new call you might enjoy the association as you'll have some amount support and work-flow in your direction. By year #2 or #3 you might look at the fee-split and start to wonder why someone else is making money on your labour.  I don't think there really is a normal for small/solo firms and these employment/association relationships. They really run the spectrum from employer-employee to two people that just share a roof. Many factors. 
    • My new OSAP estimate came in, and it is about $11,000 less than what I would have qualified for if my 1L classes were taking place in-person this fall/winter. This seems ridiculous because tuition at Osgoode is not decreasing (still north of $25K), and my living expenses have increased (food prices have gone up, and now I need a full home office set-up for law school, plus rent payments, etc). Not only that, but my summer employer has had me on "unpaid standby," and I haven't been able to locate any other meaningful or suitable work during the pandemic.   Is it fair for OSAP to now be drastically cut because law schools are going virtual this year? If loans/grants are being cut, then it follows that tuition/books/living costs should also decrease. However, that is nowhere near the case. In many instances, expenses are on the rise. What gives, OSAP?!
