As we did last cycle, please keep the Admitted threads clear of extraneous discussion. They will remain more valuable and easier to navigate.

A reminder that Accepted threads are for posting your stats only and for asking brief questions related to the stats someone posts, e.g., asking for L2. These threads are not the place for further discussion, which should be asked via PM or in a new thread. OT posts will be deleted. Thank you!

I cannot believe I'm writing this post but accepted on January 13th through RAMSS! 

OLSAS GPA: 3.64

L2: 3.66 / B2: 3.68

LSAT: 157 (highest score)

Ontario resident. Strong PS. Worked throughout my undergrad and was involved in a few ECs. I've been looking at this forum for the last few years hoping to get in one day and I can't believe it finally happened. I was waitlisted last year at multiple schools but never got in. To anyone who feels as if their GPA or LSAT score is slightly lower than what most schools are looking for please do not lose hope!! I promise you all your hard work will pay off! I'm so thankful for Ryerson and their truly holistic approach. It's so refreshing to not feel like a number anymore. I will definitely be accepting as this was my top choice and I am so excited and proud of how diverse the program will be based off these posts so far.

 

I really hope this helps other applicants!

Now you get a chance to learn Python. Congratulations!

You are still a number, either 1 (true) or 0 (false).😂

Dude, come on. This person worked hard to get into law school. Why poke fun at them now? 

Major congrats oceann. You're going to law school and on your way to becoming a lawyer. Wish you the best of luck in the rest of the process. 

Apparently you guys don't get what I meant - I was saying Ryerson will teach Python programming (coding bootcamp) and  he / she is a big number there.

Congratulations again!

Accepted as of January 15th and crazy excited, Ryerson was my number one (I know I'll probably get a lot of shit for that lol)!

GPA: 3.1

LSAT: 154

Did my undergrad at UofT, amazing extracurriculars (didn't have too many though, but very community related), also sports background. Felt like I completely bombed the interview.. didn't get to finish 2 or 3 of the questions. Definitely a holistic view on the admissions though, it seemed like the personal essays/recommendation letters were a huge part of their decision making since I felt those were my strengths.. Curious how others felt.

Regardless congrats to everybody who got in and can't wait to see the other 149 test dummies who accept the offer in September!

Also, I'm not too familiar with this whole "bootcamp" thing that is incorporated into the curriculum, can anybody who has experience with it explain to me how exactly that works..

Thank you! But it’s my CGPA I honestly haven’t even bothered to figure out my L2, I would assume it’s around 3.3

Accepted on Jan 24th, just saw it now!!! :)

I AM ECSTATIC ! I went from feeling extremely discouraged and receiving 0 Canadian law school acceptances last year to TWO already before the end of January this year. Congratulations to everyone already accepted and good luck to those waiting! It really is worth it to test your patience and re-apply. Never give up!! 

cGPA: 3.4 L2: 3.7 LSAT: 152

Late to the party, but here it is!

Accepted January 7

CGPA: 3.6 (inaccurate, because its from two schools. My most recent is probably around 3.8-ish?).
LSAT: 155
L2: probably around 3.9 (I went to York, 9 point scale. All A's and A+'s in my final two years).

Strong PS (IMO) + amazing references + lots of extracurricular/volunteer. Extensive work experience (worked ~30 hours/week while in school)

I've applied to Osgoode for 3 consecutive years, so it's refreshing to finally get an offer from a Toronto school! :mrgreen:

Thank you 🙂 I think what really helped my application this year were my references and work experience. I've been working full time at a law firm downtown since I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in 2018. I work for the sole owner of the firm who was my first reference. I think this helped a lot. My second reference was from one of my professors during undergrad. His reference helped support my personal statement where I discussed losing my father during finals week of my third year of my BA but still continuing to write my exams and finish my degree within 4 years. That was also the first semester I made honour roll and my professor was able to speak to that in my reference letter. As far as EC's go I worked a lot, volunteered with some political and other organizations (pm for details) and volunteered with my school. * Also I felt pretty confident with my video interview. 
 
Hope this helps!

    • >Cash-cows MBAs have been cash-cows for all universities for the past two decades if not three. Obviously, the bull run has been faltering since the stock market crash, but the reputation of a good MBA is still there. Then again, I'm not interested in debating the merit of an MBA, just seeking information about what triggered the reputation change. >Reputational change I don' think that Rotman's standards or class profile have changed considerably. Given that (1) Rotman's class size has been 300-350 for a good decade; (2) its alumni have been 45-55% international students since 2012; and (3) the GMAT average being steady at 650-690, I think something else is causing the significant reputation change. Interestingly, all the big MBAs in Canada have significantly dropped in rankings since 2015/6. Rotman in the 40s between  2011-14, Ivey at 46 in 2011 and 68 in 2012, Desautel in the 60s between 2011-12,  Schulich in the 70s have now all dropped to the 80s and 90s since 2016, with Schulich no longer being ranked. Of course, this is just one ranking system — one can look at Businessweek or Forbes to see different ranking tiers in Canada. Clearly, the problem is multifaceted and likely intertwined with the Canadian market. Some online sources I've consulted partially blame the drop on (1) the ranking methodology heavily emphasizing post-MBA increased wages reported in PPP, which inherently inflate the value of MBAs in developing countries; and (2) a declining job market and currency value (currency value has plummeted since 2015). You could also be onto something regarding the tidbit about international students. If 50% of the class are international students, then the ones who were keen on applying to Rotman 10 years ago have now decided to stay in their home country due to a rapidly developing education system (especially in China), then the current international applicants are less valuable. Nonetheless, I find it hard to believe that a 50 point drop is possible without some internal complications within Rotman. Perhaps (1) the class teaching styles changed; (2) the recent innovative features (e.g., Self-Development Lab) aren't as impressive as their predecessors; or (3) Rotman has severed ties with essential connections and/or donors. I'd be very interested in hearing from the experiencing of alumni, especially those who attended school between 2013-2016.
    • Wow thank you so much for this info and I’m sorry that you didn’t have a good experience. Should someone at York be notified of this if it is a scam? She is very convincing, one phone call and I was sold. 
    • I was extremely upset with my experience with Monica and so i decided to do some digging. I actually contacted Osgoode and they told me that nobody under the name of Monica Whyte has graduated from osgoode in the last 10 years or so. They said that its possible she used a different name but Monica Whyte did not go there. As well, I cant seem to find her on the York website in the PHD program.  
    • Je suis entrain de compléter un BAC en administration des affaires (3.69 de GPA). J'ai aussi appliqué à Université de Sherbrooke (sans réponse pour le moment). Bonne chance à tous!
