I've noticed that the REM portal actually allows you to take up to 21 credits even though Osgoode restricts you to 17 (or 18 if you ask). Can you actually get away with taking 21 credits?

I noticed this too. I've come up with two possible reasons for this.

First, I think this may be because of the association Osgoode has with York. I do know you can take course through York contemporaneously with your law school work load. Perhaps this can explain the ability to register in up to 21 credits.  

The second reason is that it's just a mistake...of which I have absolutely no basis whatsoever to conclude a mistake such as this would be made. 

Can you get away with it? Your guess is as good as mine.

I had the same question when I was there and was told that if they catch you, no matter how far along in the course you are or how well you are doing, they will automatically remove you from courses until you meet the required credit limits. 

Don't be a hero. Just ask to take an extra course and follow their rules.

    • Received acceptance email yesterday but will be declining.   CGPA:  3.51 LSAT:  161
    • References to R score is a Quebec thing, not necessarily a Francophone thing. We do Cegep. It's normal for a university to market itself to the local norms.  While McGill does accept people with lower LSATs (i knew of a guy who was accepted with 154, though he had a 4.0 in undergrad and ma and publications and cool work experience), McGill also advertises their average LSAT. Your whole package is taken into consideration.  Not sure what is "risk-taking" by discussing the possibility of applying. Your application, however, is below average for both GPA and LSAT. It certainly isn't impossible but I do agree with Pzabby that you should temper expectations and work on fleshing out your application more.
    • Hm I’m thinking of going as well. I’d have to skip a class but it might be worthwhile to meet some of the people I might be in it with for 3 years! I already toured the campus with a current student (who was great) but I’m sure this event will have some value with its new student focus. 
    • Got the email today! Applied on Feb 8. Still waiting on other offers, but I have until March 20 to accept. Was accepted off the waitlist late last summer, but declined.  BC resident.  GPA 3.95/4.00 LSAT 151, 156
    • Got the email on Feb 18, will be declining for another offer. Individual consideration category (mature student), BC resident GPA: 3.95/4.00 LSAT: 151, 156
