HELLO out there, just checking in on who has applied IC for 2020 admissions?? Me. Tell me your stats and your stories! I would love to know who/what I am up against :)  but also get to know potential classmates.

I probably should have applied for IC, being old and having some relevant work experience, but I had a bit of burn-out from writing personal statements and rounding up references, so I decided to just go Index. I may regret that when I get my November LSAT score, though!

Hope it works out for you. Given the amount of documentation they require for IC, it certainly suggests that they take that application stream seriously.

Thanks, you too! Tough decision to make...totally get the exhaustion over putting together a massive application package. Good luck :)

I’m surprised by the lack of activity in this years application for the individual consideration category. Usually there is lots of activity of potential students

I emailed admissions and they said those who are getting interviews will find out shortly (I can't help think that this means today or the next few days...). It has to be really soon, because they can't tell you you're getting an interview with less than 2 weeks notice, right? Some people have to travel here.

We know the interviews will take place on March 6 and 7. Do we know how soon after that, that the acceptances are given for IC?

You’re the best. Thanks for asking. Fingers crossed for all of us.

I just received an email about being an alternate for an interview. So I guess that means I'm on a waitlist of sorts for an interview.

I got an interview, they are taking place on Mar 7 and 8, and the deadline to respond is feb 18 at noon. So I assume this is when they will release more spots.

You mean to ask who am I? That’s one secret I’ll never tell,

I got an interview as well folks!

Has anybody received final confirmation on the details of the interview itself (which was supposed to come out once all times were confirmed with interviewees)?

I received only my time slot so far. Wishing everyone good luck!

I received the same, I’m thinking more details will come out as the day gets closer. Although I do wonder how many people were selected for interviews. Also congratulations on being selected for interview, best of luck to you.

Okay, makes sense. Likely next week then.

From my understanding, 24 people are selected for an interview - firm. From those, 15 make it through. 7 max being allotted to those who reside outside of Manitoba.

Thank you! :) Same to you!

    • I worked full-time at a fast food restaurant for two years prior to attending law school. I did not drink any alcohol, I used the local Tim Hortons WiFi and I relied on my city's food bank. I managed to save enough to pay for 2/3 of my law school tuition. I relied on OSAP and bursaries for the rest.
    • Hello, I was recently admitted to Osgoode and am looking to start applying for an apartment in Assiniboine or the Osgoode Chambers as soon as possible given the limited number of 1 bedroom apartment units. I firmly accepted the offer two days ago as Osgoode is my dream law school (I seriously feel so fortunate even now), and my offer response status on OASIS was updated to "accepted" I am assuming to indicate Osgoode has processed my firm acceptance on OLSAS. Now, in my e-mail offer package sent to me by Vicky, the admissions coordinator, was a student number; this student number was the same one as my current York university student number as I am finishing up my undergraduate at York at this point in time. When I follow the housing application through for newly admitted applicants I see on the York "MyFile" page my admittance into Osgoode has been confirmed, though I cannot select the "York University Apartment Lease Term" option in the the housing application portal that extends from the "MyFile" page; as in, the option isn't there at all. I haven't received the official offer letter in the mail yet, will that contain a different student number for me to use than the one currently in my online offer package sent to me by the admissions coordinator? Or, is this simply a file processing matter and the option will be available to me at a later date? I see on my OASIS page a message at the bottom that says "stay tuned for further information about your new passport York account and Osgoode student email"- I also considered my issue is related to that. Thank you in advance anyone who replies and can provide clarifying information about this process  
    • Does anybody know what the fb group is called?
    • Can someone recommend some good neighbourhoods and apartment complexes to look into? Do most law students live alone or in groups? I’d figure grad students wouldn’t live in a house with undergrad frat boys lol   Also, if anyone is looking for a clean, serious and respectful housemate next year, my DMs are open 😝
    • hi got no dog in this fight or anything but the subject matter caught my attention, so this is just an FYI sorta: i'm coming from a software background and your reluctance to treat this as being an understandable, human error because the root cause might be a software bug is kind of suspect logic (imo, sorry!) despite those debugging courses, and despite even rigorous bug testing in the development process (fantastical case, very seldom the reality in my experience working in a variety of orgs. and domains), it is an inevitability that bugs slip through the cracks, and the more obscure they are the easier they slip, and sometimes they are found in a closed-source library that you've imported, etc. so really, as far as the end-user goes, he or she may have done some innocent thing and triggered a very obscure bug resulting in the erroneous email (okay sure, kind of a convenient scenario but still very possible) best of luck and i hope it gets resolved in your favour! imma peace out nowwwwwww 😬 edit: don't get me wrong, i'd be so upset if i got this email lol... but i mean antagonizing the institution you're trying to join seems like a bad way to go either way
