Admissions Acknowledgement

Recommended Posts

Anyone else did not receive admissions acknowledgement? I received an acknowledgement from every other law school that I applied to other than Osgoode. Should I e-mail the admissions office?

I have also not gotten an email acknowledgement from any of these schools. However, I currently am a Queen's University undergraduate student and noticed on my student SOLUS account this morning that my JD application is available for tracking (I assume emails will come out later). If you are a Queen's student, though, I imagine this is already available for you as well!

Osgoode.

lol. Osgoode. Expect some delays. If others start receiving them and you don't, then I'd recommend reaching out to them.

When I applied last cycle I distinctly remember the confirmation of receipt of my application to Osgoode coming significantly later than the other schools I had applied. I wouldn't worry about it- this early on in the cycle they likely would have only just begun compiling applications into files for later review by the admissions committee.

Why are you people so concern about 'acknowledgement' from law schools? 

Just relax.  Your application will go through the review process if you submitted them properly.

The entire application process seems to stress the idea that "if this application is fucked up, it's your fault". When added to the fact that some schools seem to be asynchronous in the release of confirmations you end up with a host of worried applicants. 

While I understand these threads might be overkill, I think it is somewhat unfair to dismiss people's concerns so easily. You are almost certianly right is saying that everything will pan out in the end. But telling people to relax is unlikely to yield results.

"But telling people to relax is unlikely to yield results. "

What kind of results are you expecting ?

    • @GrumpyMountie You're saying it's hard and rare for 1L students to get co-op jobs in the summer yet 2/3 of your 1L class are in the co-op program? How does that make any sense? Doesn't seem to be hard.
    • You can certainly maintain a practice in multiple areas of law, and many lawyers do. But in terms of having done one exclusively and then trying to move to another... depending on the fields of law you are coming from and going to, it can be either easy or more nuanced and complex.  For example, switching between civil litigation fields (commercial, estates, personal injury, family, insurance, bankruptcy and insolvency, etc) is done often and is very easy since the basic principles are the same. Switching from solicitor work to litigation or vice versa is more difficult because it's a different set of skills. Or, for example, from criminal law to any other area.  It also depends on how junior you are. The more junior you are the easier it is to transition. If you have been called to the bar for 5+ years though and have only ever done criminal law, it will certainly be harder to transition, but mostly in terms of finding a firm that will take you and train you in a new area. Then you'll have to spend a large amount of time re-learning the field and won't be as profitable. One person at my firm is a 10+ year call and recently made a switch from immigration law to commercial litigation. I think they are treating him like a 5 year call, so he's essentially had years of experience erased. It had a steep learning curve but he's doing it.  
    • Don't get me wrong I am also anticipating an acceptance and  refreshing my page over 15x a day, but at the same time I almost do want it to come yet! This has been a 1-3 year long process for many of us. Between undergrad, the LSAT, personal statements, extracurriculars and all other aspects that come with applying to law school it is insane to be so close to this full circle moment. I know that my initial reaction to my acceptance will be a very memorable moment in my life. I am so excited to feel the feelings associated with this accomplishment. Is it weird that I almost don't want it to come so it doesn't leave? I guess it's apart of life, especially as a lawyer since there is always something to anticipate next. It keeps things interesting. Just some random late night thoughts. But we should all be so proud! We are lucky enough to still be apart of the process so lets enjoy it and stay present (they say the journey is the best part!) 
    • That’s what I noticed too and I thought maybe I was doing something wrong lol since the other calculators such as Wes show a bigger difference lol 
    • I'm just glad that there is something to look forward to and get me out of bed every morning...
