A little confused about waitlist as it says "Your file has been added to the wait pool from where new offers of admission will be drawn."

So should we assume that the new offers (if any) will be made from the wait pool? If so, what about the people in queue...would they go into either waitlist or rejection then? 

I have a gut feeling that it's not like this and that new offers will be made for the people in queue but then what's the point of the waitlist? 

(I'm super confused so if anyone could clear anything up, it would be great!) Thanks :) 

 

They’ll first give the remaining offers to those in queue (if their applications are good enough) then once every application has been reviewed, they’ll return to the waitlist. You can be put on the waitlist at any time. It just means they’re “on the fence” about your application so they don’t want to give a definite yes or no until they see how many spots are left over. Hope this helps!

I actually emailed Osgoode admissions to ask this exact question. They have yet to get back to me, but I will post an update here if I do end up hearing back from them. 

Thank you for calling them & that would be amazing... would help with some serious nerves and anxiety haha

Being waitlisted is not something I would be happy about.

I would prefer to be waitlisted over being rejected.

    • Oh yea, I agree with you. Just to clarify I was only talking about NYC. I don't think Canadian schools are well recognized by other states (especially ones that are not city like) in general. They might of heard of UofT but it doesn't sound like a big deal to them compare to the ivy schools. I think it is better to just attend a US school if anyone wants to work in the states. 
    • The other thing OP is going to have to consider is immigration issues. Big law firms will sponsor law students seeking to practice in the US, but even some of those firms don't want to deal with the hassle and screen out most Canadians for that reason.  If OP is looking to practice at a firm in North Dakota, the odds of them having experience sponsoring Canadians seeking to practice in the US are incredibly low. OP is going to want to take the lead on immigration issues so they can guide any prospective employers through the process.  If OP is looking to practice independently, they're going to have to look into whether or not that's even possible as a Canadian. 
    • Kamloops is pretty pet friendly. A lot of my classmates had dogs or cats. The most popular condo complex for law students (across the street from campus) allowed small pets.
    • Okay, now that I've writtern both exams, here are my thoughts. To recap, this is how I wrote each exam:  Barristers – read the materials, highlighted them, and used the DTOC during the exam. I ultimately finished quite early and didn't find it challenging at all.  Solicitors – did not read the materials (and thus didn't highlight them) and used the DTOC during the exam. The exam took close to the whole time for me (finished ~30 mins early), and was relatively challenging at points.  For context, I took courses in essentially everything examined on the barrister and only took a course on one portion of the solicitors.  If I were to do the exams again, I think I would choose one of the following two methods and stick with it: (i) what I did for the barristers – reading the materials and using the DTOC; or (ii) not reading the materials, but using an index instead of the DTOC. I think it was ultimately somewhat challenging to write the exam without an index and without having read the materials. The lack of familiarity with the materials makes it difficult to find things via the DTOC, whereas an index would allow you to quickly find answers. For future students, I would encourage you not to purchase practice exams, and, if you choose to use the DTOC method, don't purchase indices either. They're a racket.
