Osgoode In Queue 2021

Recommended Posts

Hi just checked and it says my file was added to queue.

cGPA: 2.7

B2:  3.31 (self calculated)

LSAT: 157

Filled out Part B and had a letter for accessibility claim from my healthcare provider.

In my opinion I had a strong PS, many ECs and decent LORs. Heavily social justice oriented. We'll see!

I went into queue Jan 18, but honestly, I doubt it means anything. My stats are somewhat sub-par, so at this point I am pretty convinced that this whole "in queue" thing is more or less random. But nevertheless...

cGPA: 3.2 (OLSAS)

L2: 3.46 

B2: 3.5

LSAT: 158 

Filled out part B. In my humble opinion I think I have strong ECs and LORs, and a fairly unique life story. But who knows what admissions will think!

Good luck to everyone!

It seems that the latest In-Queues are having one thing in common: 157-160 LSAT. Maybe they ranked the file according to LSAT?

It's possible I suppose! Although I would assume it's more like 157-180 (some are higher than 160). I guess we may never know the exact logic behind this. According to erinl2's post it's very ambiguous...

I was thinking the same....I have a 151 so I am hoping I may see myself in queue by late-Feb to mid-March

I’ve been in Queue from Jan 8. The same day they sent the message of having received the application.

I think the "In Queue" status means "Your file has been sent to Adcom", but no guarantee that your file has been READ already. It's still too early to judge anything.

Just went into the queue! 

Did January LSAT and got a 164 and I have 3.4 gpa according to OLSAS (I transferred so calculating GPA has been confusing)

    • I don't think they weigh your cGPA too heavily. My cGPA is pretty tragic but I have a strong L2 and a sub-par LSAT and was waitlisted last cycle. I know that's not an acceptance but I really do think they prioritize your L2, and favour a strong upward trend. (I have friends who were accepted over previous cycles with lower cGPA's but strong L2's as well). 
    • I was accepted by Western this cycle with with a 3.08 cGPA and a 3.65 L2 (and a 167 LSAT). Mind you, I also have 2 masters degrees and got an A- average in both (both were course-based). I think cGPA does matter, but they account for how long ago your undergrad was and what you've done since then, and whether you've proved that you could probably do better if you were given another chance (and ergo succeed in law school). 
    • Hi, are there any LLM applicants for the year 2021/2022 who received an admission e mail from Dalhousie? My application was completed on 31st March 2021 and waiting for a reply from the University. Just wondering whether any one of you guys have an update.    Thank you!!!
    • There are a lot of municipalities in Canada. City of Toronto hires a few articling students (most of their lawyers are former articling students and they rarely hire from outside though), along with Region of Peel, York Region, and some others I've seen. For federal government, there is only really the DOJ Legal Excellence Program. The municipalities also hire junior lawyers and I've seen quite a few postings in York Region and the surrounding areas. The process is a lot faster than the federal government which can take over a year from the time you apply. The federal government rarely hires junior lawyers outside of its articling students and federal court clerks. And you often see mid-level lawyers applying for LP-01 positions with the federal government and going through a written exam and interview processes just to end up in a waiting pool. I know people who applied in 2019 for the most recent DOJ LP-01 recruitment process and were put into a waiting pool which is scheduled to expire soon, after which point you have to apply all over again. So getting your foot in the door is a lot harder than it is for municipal and provincial. Certainly, getting into provincial is easier than municipal as there are a lot more legal positions available as well.
