OLSAS is having issues...

Recommended Posts

FYI, if your Windsor app is incomplete, this is why...

While reviewing your application and documents that have been uploaded by OLSAS, I have yet to receive all the required documents.  BUT, PLEASE DO NOT WORRY...as we were just notified that OLSAS is working on the issue. (This is not an individual issue, we are waiting for other documents from other applicants also).

Omg hahahaha. RIP. Mine is incomplete, but the only thing on my to-do list is LSAT, which they could have just pulled from LSAC (I know they've requested it....). I wonder if they're waiting for OLSAS to send them it???? Weird.

I actually contacted OLSAS who told me that they have no issues on their end. But Windsor said there are issues. I am literally the one trying to fix this issue LOL. Just forwarded Windsor's email to OLSAS and waiting for a response.

Yeah, it sounds like its all on Windsor's end. Wouldn't be surprised if they were just having retrieving issues in generally, with OLSAS and LSAC.

Just following up - my status still says incomplete due to my LSAT score being only initiated. Has anyone seen changes to their admissions status since they returned from holiday?

I was a November LSAT for all of those curious, but I was incomplete with LSAT outstanding up until that point. :)

I have the same on my to-do list but it says the LSAT is for November 2021 🤷‍♂️. Seems like that would cause some issues lol.

Everything seems to be in order on OLSAS so it absolutely seems like an issue on Windsor's side.

my status says "complete" but on the to-do list, every item is "initiated" and dated as 02/11/2021 lol

probably waiting on an update on Windsor's end because most of the other school platforms have received all my documents from OLSAS

Okay update: I emailed asking if my app is actually complete and now they manually went in and changed my app to say "Referred-Admissions Committee." Lol. I guess if your app says Incomplete it might actually just be an error.

As of an hour ago, i am now Referred-Admissions Committee!!

I've been emailing them and I emailed them last week, she said she would try to review my application this week and send it to adcom if it's complete. Then today, I finally got referred. 

Now the real waiting game begins!

Mine has said “pending review” ever since I submitted my application. I have a score on file, however I’m set to write it again this month. I emailed them and they said they will need the new score before being able to view all documents, which is why many tasks are initiated.

    • 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. 
    • Hey I'm a bit late here but I can give you my personal experience. It is quit the contrary of what your expectations seem to be. I did 3 years CEGEP and a 4 year Undergrad (just because I took my time). I spent some time managing a restaurant, then started a law certificate in the evening, then law school. I thought I would be disadvantaged because my background was so far away form the classic path to Biglaw. I will be 28 when graduating. I just did my Course aux stages and got 4 offers, while having a 3.65 GPA. First, they don't care about your age. If you have done anything productive in the past 10 years, it will be a great advantage to you in the interviews, because you might have more to say than anyone else. Find a way to highlight your maturity/leadership or whatever it is you have developed while others were in high school. I had a lot of misconceptions about a supposed prejudice towards older candidates, but I can assure you they don't really care. Get involved in whatever gets you going and be passionate about something. Good luck!
