    Congratulations. What category did you apply under?

    Misread it. Second part of my post still stands tho.

    If you want to remain on the waitlist, you should send an e-mail to uottawa by tomorrow, as tomorrow is the deadline to respond. An Admissions Officer confirmed with me that, since files have already been scored, the admissions committee will not be looking at anymore supplementary files, including new grades.

    Last couple of years waitlist threads on this site contained the official numbers,

    Don't be so sure. Last year they made it to the 150th person on the waitlist out of 176. Even with the previous years waitlist of 253, they got over 100. Have some faith.

    Just to clarify: so if I don't get an offer by first week of classes, I could call the school to see if there was anyone who didnt accept their late offer and and I could possibly take their spot because I live in Ottawa?

    I meant to say that I hope I am within the top 100 or so places on the waitlist. I am only waiting on Ottawa, and I live in Ottawa, so I can hypothetically wait until the first week of classes. I would like to be at a reasonable place on the waitlist so I have the opportunity to be given an offer between June and the end of August if other people will decline theirs.

    Depends on how many people get accepted off the waitlist per year, which I imagine varies a lot. Last year, it was said that 123 people got in out of 176. I presumed the same number got in on the 2016 waitlist which had 253 applicants on it, which is incorrect.

    Hopefully its closer to 176 and not 253.

    That's very encouraging to hear. Did they mention a date that they would be ranking the waitlist?
  11. Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

    Sounds like they have a holistic criteria for their file evaluations.
  12. Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

    Do they rank the waitlist according to stats or is it based on who they want the most?
  13. Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

    If you are in the top 100, you have a good shot at an offer. I don't think they place people on the list based on stats alone, it's a subjective ranking according to the admissions committee, but stats may play a role.
  14. Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

    I haven't heard of anyone being rejected off the waitlist, the only way that an individual on the waitlist would not get an offer on the waitlist is if that person would be in a ranking near the bottom (199/200 for instance) and they miss the boat after uOttawa gives out all of their offers toward the first week of classes. But I could be wrong. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
  15. Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

    Well that's nice to hear, I was thinking that would be the worst case scenario. I hope the waitlist doesn't reach 600-800 like it did in previous years.
