Haven't Heard Back Yet - Really Upset and Need Some Advice

Recommended Posts

Thanks again. I once thought “registered” means “registered your info for Application” rather than “registered your name for the offer”. So it could be a typical LSAT “misinterpretation ” question based on the conversation between @NeverGiveUp and me in previous posts. 

Cheers!

Not sure what “registered your name for the offer” means but in case it’s not clear, registered literally means registered for courses. As in, you became a student at the law school and actually signed up for classes (as opposed to someone who accepted but then withdrew for another school before classes started).

You may have quoted the wrong person lol, but now I'm intrigued - did you only apply to Osgoode?

Oops! My mistake lol!

I applied to Osgoode, Ottawa, Windsor and Queens. havent heard a single thing from the other schools since November. My stats are pretty low though so I’m surprised Osgoode waitlisted me

Ya your LSAT is a little low, a CGPA a touch low but overall decent stats, how are your extra's/references?

I think this is stretching the definition of being a splitter.

By definition I think it means excellent in one category and poor in the other. 

Certainly not just significantly different from each other. It's not applicable if you're average in one and poor in the other.

There’s a delightful symmetry between the username “Hopeful10101” and the statement “could be any day now”.

My references were two profs that I had worked with extensively throughout my undergrad and imo, I had fairly good EC’s. Who knows lol

    • Yes, you just need to have completed 60 credit hours. Otherwise they don’t care if you drop a class. 
    • Sorry, L2 was 3.96
    • I imagine the majority of people don't fill out this section actually (don't quote me on this though cause I could be wrong). Or if they do, a large portion of them really don't have an entirely valid reason for doing so. They simply do it cause it's an option which they think will improve their chances of being admitted. I know for myself anyways, none of the four categories really applied to me, and I wasn't about to make up some poor excuse for why I was "disadvantaged" during my undergrad (although I understand that is not the only reason why someone may fill out Part B). Don't get me wrong though, that's not to say there aren't many cases where people don't have a valid reason! I have heard some pretty crazy situations where the individual has every reason in the world to fill it out. **My apologies, forgot this was the accepted thread, please delete
    • A really big yacht vs a slightly smaller yacht, I think is the main difference in pay.
    • Others with more experience feel free to chime in, but I'd negotiate. They've spent a year vetting your work and offered to hire you back. This means they like you, your work is competent enough, and they've already spent time and money training you to become this competent. In short, they're unlikely to walk away at the first sight of negotiation. You've already found out they're offering you bottom of the ladder pay (though be careful with wide averages and practice types), so you're not being unreasonable with asking for more. Last, negotiation can help bring out certain benefits you'd enjoy in lieu of extra pay, that would be cheaper for the employer. For example, maybe some commission from work you bring in, or insurance benefits, gas expenses (they can write those off as a business expense), etc. So don't be afraid to get creative (within reason).
