When do rejections go out?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am new here and so I have a newbie question. I know that offers at most law schools are being made on a rolling basis. Do OLSAS schools notify of a rejection towards the end of the cycle or during the cycle? 

I am trying to understand as I plan ahead for 2021.

Thanks.

I think it depends on the school. If you look on each schools forum you can find the rejection threads and when they started. There are some as early as Feb (Windsor I think) and some later. But keep in mind that not everyone who gets rejected (or accepted) will post on the threads (or are even on this site)

Oh dip, people get rejected in February? I've never heard of that (then again I haven't really checked out the Windsor threads haha).

Yeah apparently so, I checked a few threads after I saw this post cause I was curious lol and I was pretty surprised. I always assumed schools waited till the end to send out rejections.

Most schools will start rejections in March and April. A couple can be later than that, and maybe a couple before.

Why would schools wait until the end of the cycle?  The actual end of the cycle isn't until August when those on the waitlist are hoping to get in.

I am a 3L and Queen's has still not let me know. On a serious note though, rejections come out around beginning of May through June. It varies depending on how quickly the classes fill up based on decisions of students.

Typically, Ontario schools begin to notify of rejections in March or April. Windsor, being the exception, with February notifications. Queen's was later in the 2020 cycle but that was unusual. It's possible that schools outside Ontario notify later.

    • Hey guys, has anyone been waitlisted yet? My anxiety is growing quickly by the day lol. What do you think it means that they have started the wait list? do you think they’re done with acceptances?
    • what are your stats? and how did you find out?
    • I echo what Deadpool said. There are a lot of lawyers in policy roles, such as in the PM and EC pay groups, trying to break into the LP group. Unfortunately, internal postings for LP-01 positions (generally, lawyers with 0-4 years experience post-call) are very rare because the DOJ fills LP-01 positions with their own articling students and the SCC/FCA/FC/TCC law clerks through unadvertised processes. As a result, there’s not much use for internal only competitions and if they need additional people they’ll generally run an external competition. Everyone I’ve heard of who transferred from a government policy role into the DOJ did so through networking and getting an unadvertised appointment. So if you take the policy job and want to get into the DOJ, do not rely on getting in through a formal internal posting. 
    • I can't say I love it either but in a sense it's the most holistic way to decide every application on its own individual merits instead of pitting them against another application.  I also prefer gin with my tonic.
