Rejected U of T 2020

Recommended Posts

Well, I guess I will start the thread off. 

3.76 / 155 / Decent softs 

Not surprised at all, but their rejection e-mail was oddly nice? Best of luck to everyone else!

3.55/170

I applied with a 159 and didn't get the 170 to January, plus I didn't write the optional essay.

Bummed but at least there's a global pandemic to distract me.

Same boat as you, 171 and 3.53 GPA. Looks like UofT is a GPA heavy school.

Hopefully another school see's your potential.

 

Looks like i'll be heading west.

Thanks - I might head out west too, to UVic. I didn't get a chance to visit before the coronavirus shut everything down, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do now.

Rejected as expected. 

cGPA 3.1, L2 3.3

LSAT 152 

Indigenous applicant, applied mainly because I did a program with them in high school where they had Indigenous youth from across the country come and stay on campus and learn from a bunch of UofT Indigenous law students and professors and talked about addressing barriers pertaining to Indigenous peoples entering law. It was genuinely life changing to me as a lil 15 year old which I talked about in my option essay and PS to other schools as I had never even considered law school as something possible for me and only applied initially because i saw it as a free trip to visit Toronto. The program was ambitious but short lived and I think they only ran it 2 or 3 times before they ran out of funding for it and was hoping they maybe wanted to prove it was worth something and have a spokesperson or something but I definitely get that my numbers are far off the mark but eh was worth a shot

    • This is true as well. I’m early twenties I always forget that haha. Thanks  
    • Nothing specific to add regarding your invitation from the committee, however, I read some interesting advice recently that I feel is applicable here. If Osgoode has taken the time to invite you for an interview, they're hoping you're a candidate that will pan out for them. In my view, there's no reason to be concerned as long as you answer their questions candidly. I would wish you luck, but I sincerely believe you won't need it!
    • As someone who is also anxiously awaiting admissions I would say that some comforting things that have helped me with managing if I don't get in this year are that the average admissions age is 25-26 years. I obviously don't know your age, but for me this gave comfort as it meant if I do get rejected then I will take the time to invest it in relevant work experience and boosting my LSAT score without "falling behind" the general population in law school. While age doesn't really matter, it helped me rationalize that I am really young in comparison to other applicants and I should not take it as an insult/discouragement to spend the same amount of time they have taken to invest in getting into law school. Also, you can always transfer after 1L so if you dislike your school then you can always transfer! 
    • I'm on the same boat as you, in review for most places.
    • If you’re hired, I would confirm with your firm before committing to anything.  I don’t think it’s safe to say anything at this point and, depending on the firm, you may not even be allowed to physically enter the office absent exceptional circumstances.
