  1. Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

    I would argue that it is almost he same as not making it ON the list either. It just gets your hopes up for nothing at that point. I like how UOttawa ranks them so everyone has a chance because it can’t be taken away from you. Unless the adcom accidentally put you on the waitlist and then take you off. I also wanted to mention that it seems as though you can be accepted off the wait list because the numbers come out. This happened to @girl416 I don’t think they can reject you before the ranking come out tho. Again, unless they waitlisted you by accident.

    Hello I just wanted to add that winter tires are good, but not good enough for the winters here. Try to get an all-wheel drive as well as your winter tires. It might cost a bit extra but it’s worth it. More reliable and last longer.
  3. Rejections

    After by a week TOPS. It doesn’t stretch into October or anything like that. Not even mid September tbh. Usually a day or two after classes started.

    Ya Tbh I don’t think they have a specific order in what they look for. I would argue it’s Holistic because I looked at past threads and I saw a 3.0 cgpa and 156 lsat get waitlisted at 6th place whereas some people had higher cgpas and lsats and still got a later number.

    I totally get what you are saying but like you said - it’s all hypothetical. We need to leave this in the hands of the Adcom. My guess based on your scenario tho, the A and B would be roughly within the same 10 numbers distance perhaps. Try calling UOttawa and asking what’s the order? Is it cgpa then lsat then softs or?

    Hard to say how many Access students are in the waitlist, especially with the new waitlist people coming in. They don’t distinguish us much actually. They rank us all in the same waitlist based on stats, EC, etc, holistic approach. I called and asked this question a week ago.

    Oh nice, what are your stats?

    So did your girlfriend pay the deposit?

    Alexmiffy means how many spots are left for acceptance. Not how many are currently on the waitlist. I agree with LuckyCharm but I also wanted to point out that I am sure there are people who got accepted but either didn’t know about the group page yet or don’t even have fb. So the “200 spots left” is just a ball park.

    Oh ok makes sense now. So stats I mean your lsat and cgpa scores. Could even toss in your two cents on your personal statement and extra-curriculars If you wanted to share for prospective students. So if you got into the French program, I’m assuming you didn’t do the lsat? What was your cgpa then if you don’t mind me asking?

  12. No Status Change

    I was told over the phone in March that all decisions would be out by May, which makes sense because all the waitlist candidates seem to be in now and I am seeing a significant number of refusals suddenly as compared to previous months on this forum. Also, if someone were to be added to the waitlist in June and forward, it would interfere with the sequence of rankings. Anyways, the best way to confirm all this is to call and ask.
  13. Rejections

    Good luck my friend! Don’t give up! You still have a chance it seems!!
  14. No Status Change

    All the waitlist candidates are in. Deadline is passed. It’s only acceptances and rejections at this point. It can go either way.

    They reevaluate your CGPA, LSAT, PS, EC(s), etc and give you a number. It’s basically holistic. So yes, you could have a 3.21 cgpa and a 155 lsat and super convincing PS whereas someone who has a 3.3 cgpa and 160 lsat and a PS that makes almost no sense and you can end up with a closer number. My question, though, is if Access applicants are prioritized on the waitlist over General applicants? Idk. I feel like lower stats + Access is almost equivalent to a higher stats person + General applicant. But Access with competitive stats is usually seen as overcoming adversaries and still succeeding so they might get a lower number. It’s so subjective though because it depends on the adversary and the program you had (biomedical mechanical engineering VS an general arts student). Thoughts?
