Hi All! 

I wanted to start a thread for this. I found it was very helpful to have a community last year while waiting for my acceptances from law schools.

Now I am trying to transfer to Toronto on compassionate grounds due to health. My first year GPA is so far a B - B+.  

Anyone else waiting to transfer to Osgoode for September 2019?

Thanks for starting this, saraeliz. I'm just doing up the application now as well. Hoping to transfer also on compassionate  grounds due to health. I can't speak re: the exams I've done, but my midterm average was a B+.

Hi @saraeliz and @LS9292

I am also trying to transfer to Osgoode! Do either of you have any idea on the timeline for this (i.e. when we might hear about accepted/rejected)? I don't think my grounds for transferring will count as "compassionate" (I want to be closer to family, my significant other and some other commitments). My 1L GPA is roughly A- (it's on the 10-point UO scale and I don't know exactly what it works out to on a 4.0 scale). Did either of you apply to U of T as well / know of the timeline there? Best of luck :)

Hi all, 

i also applied and I’m curious on when they’re likely to get back to us (seems like mid July?) and if it’ll be before course selection, which is a somewhat big consideration for me. My guess is course selection will already have passed but I haven’t been able to find information on those dates online. 

@law6543 I have around an A- average on the 10 point as well, and also applied to u of t! No compassionate grounds for my osgoode application. Looks like we’re in the same position

In my year acceptances (i think) began going out mid-July, which was after course selection (but Osgoode has quite a lot of course offerings and some courses are offered more than once per year so it wasn't that big of a deal i don't think).

Has everyone heard back? I'm assuming a rejection at this point, but wondering what's going on. 

Was wondering the same thing. I have been trying to call them this past week but wasn't able to get through to anyone. Did anybody had luck?

You have to wait till someone rejected their offer or after the expiration date for the first batch of offers before there may be any additional offers.

I was a transfer student 2 years ago and just fyi there used to be a club created by transfer students to organize events so you could all get to know each other and share tips etc. but no one was able to take it over after graduation i don't think. if any of you want, once you start school you can email Mya Rimon (main contact person for a lot of stuff at Osgoode) and ask her for the list of transfer students and you can send out an email to everyone with a link to an fb group or a meetup etc. Also, there's a summary bank at Osgoode run by legal and lit and to get the password you need to submit a summary of your own to add to the bank, but since you're transfer students you won't have summaries for any Osgoode courses, so you can email legal and lit (probably the vp internal) and ask for the password to the summary bank and in the past they've given it out to transfer students.

    • Either way, avoid the term "poly marriage" in your interview. Oh, and check the Ontario Reports, and the OBA classifieds:  https://www.oba.org/Publications-and-Resources/Job-Board The first posting on the OBA classifieds is for a 0-2 year call for a criminal position.  Mr. Confente has struck me as a reasonable man in my run-ins with him, although I can't speak to his virtues as an employer. 
    • Hey guys my stats are shown. What would be my chances for osgoode and other Ontario schools? Also, it is all full course load except for the last year where I took 9 courses during the year, instead of the usual 10
    • I don't want to be too affirmative with my comments because at the end of the day, it's still an educated? guess at best. Anyways, I definitely wouldn't put so much weight on your ps, it really is going to a small factor. If an 3.75 l2 and 164 didn't get you in then either look to your cgpa or improving your lsat. I would also double check that your l2 is correct. You can possibly call Queens and ask what they calculated your l2 as. 
    • Yes but you don't see the people that didn't get in with similar stats. I made the mistake of reading way too much into stats in the accepted threads and I thought I was in with my 161. If you're okay with that slim chance and have other options then of course that's fine. For me I only wanted law school and so my mistake really hurt me. 
    • I certainly hope so - I ain't getting any younger!
