  1. Application Feedback

    Hey! Thanks for taking the time to reply! My stats are: 3.11 OLSAS CGPA and 154 LSAT. The GPA, however, is specious in the sense that it includes both grades from many courses that I have retaken. My self-calculated CGPA omitting the original grades in retaken courses is 3.58. Regardless of calculation criteria, my L2 is 3.89. Thanks again!
  2. I was rejected off of the wait list earlier this week. I called the school to try and get some feedback on my application. I want to know - or at least have enough information to infer - what changes the adcomm would like to see in my application in order to make it more competitive for this coming cycle. I was told that if there were any comments on my file, the Associate Dean would get back to me. Is there anybody in a similar position that has had better luck 'extracting' some comments from the school?
  3. Current Windsor Waitlist 2017

    I hate that this is our reality lol
  4. Current Windsor Waitlist 2017

    I guess it could be the case that those removed from the wait list either a) aren't a member on this forum; b) are members but don't read or post regularly; or c) did not want to post about their wait list rejection. Whatever the reality, I'm frustrated and discouraged. Not that I expect a positive (or any) outcome, but I may reach out to the school early next week and pry for some more information. If the fact of the matter is that I have no chance of admission, I'd rather remove myself from the list and get on with my life haha. I don't like writing posts like this, because it feels like I'm whining. Many people on this forum have been through this process (some have gone through it several times), and it seems as though the consistent advice is to try and be patient. I guess patience is a virtue that I find myself wanting. All the best to everyone still on the wait list. Thanks for all of your posts. Reading and posting on this site is incredibly cathartic.

    ...no way. So there were no offers made this week that we know of? That's bruuuuutal. Given the update of June 28, I was hopeful that some offers would go out this week. Indeed, previous updates on the Windsor website indicated that only those with a 'reasonable chance' of receiving an offer survived the last wait list culling. All of this gave me hope. The update of today has either extended the painful wait - until God knows when - or ended this year's admissions cycle with, what us poor wait listers can only assume is, a de facto rejection. If we have no real chance of receiving an offer, I really wish that the admissions team would just put us out of our misery.

    LOL I was big-headed enough to think the same thing. Initially, I overlooked the blurb about being on the wait list; when I saw "can't wait to meet you all soon", my heart skipped a beat. In my fervour to check my application status online, I mistyped "my.uwindsor.ca" like 5 times. When my status was still "Wait List", I re-read the email and noticed the blurb about wait list candidates. Sooooooo disappointing hahaha.

    Got the same email from Francine - still on the wait list...since March 10. This is killing me.
  8. BSocSc and Law schoool Admit

    First of all, congratulations on your acceptance to Ottawa! While not required, it is my understanding that an applicant with a 4 year (or honours) undergraduate degree is more likely to be offered admission to law school in Ontario than a candidate with a 3 year degree. Having said that, an honours degree is not generally required for admission to law school. You will do a lot of growing over the next few years; you will learn as much about yourself as the subject that you study. You will find that many of your current ambitions, preferences, and hobbies will be profoundly altered by the time you complete your degree. I can therefore offer very little advice with respect to your choice of program. I can only suggest that you research various career paths in each program and select the one that appeals most to you right now. Get good grades and enjoy the experience! All the best!

    In queue since Jan 25
  10. Rejected from Queen's 2017

    Rejected by email and on SOLUS just now. cGPA: 3.11 LSAT: 154 'Mature' applicant in the sense that I'm 28 and have worked full time for more than 5 years. Best of luck to those still waiting!
  11. Rejected 2017

    Heavy involvement in a family business since 2003 with significant responsibilities throughout undergrad; full-time (career-level) job since 2013; ride to conquer cancer team leader, same part-time job since 2008; and youth hockey coach since 2008. Thanks for your well-wishes! I'd been retaking classes from undergrad for the better part of two years now trying to bring up my GPA, but apparently OLSAS counts both classes and doesn't replace them - should have done my research beforehand. I'm in my late 20's - I'm hoping that I get in somewhere this cycle, or I may have to move on . Edit: I realize that my EC's are nothing extraordinary, and my personal statement was nothing special. I regret not having invested the same time and focus that I did for schools like Windsor, Osgoode (LOL - don't even know why I applied), and Queens.
