Waitlisted

 

LSAT 158

Windsor Law Average: 80.9

 

Does anyone know how many people have been let in off the waitlist in the past? I know that a lot of people who get accepted to Windsor and elsewhere generally go elsewhere.

It does not necessarily mean that the class is full. It means that your application is one which they would be willing to re-consider once they go through the rest.

 

(I have previously inquired about this)

For sure...76% windsor average, 3.7 L2 and a 150 LSAT (only write) 

 

Pretty strong ECs and reference letters and my PS was very social justice orientated. Was involved in a lot of stuff on campus: Judicial committee, student ambassador, was on the dance team, intramurals, law society. I am also on a board of directors in the community where i go to school where we facilitate and help disadvantaged individuals in the community develop life goals and help them achieve them. I had a job all throughout university working at a Law firm and as a server. I play soccer and dance outside of school as well. 

 

Although my stats are pretty low, I do do a lot both in and outside of school and my grades show a very strong upward trend from first to fourth year. I'm assuming my softs got their attention given my low stats. But I hope this gives hope for others...very surprised to have been waitlisted this early. I'm assuming they are waiting for my final grades to make a decision. I also only applied to windsor/dual, if that has anything to do with it.

First off, for those waitlisted to the single JD were you referred to the admissions committee before hand? Or did your status note that it was incomplete?

Also interesting to see that the dual program sent out waitlist notifications before anyone on this sub indicated an acceptance. Unless I missed that there were dual JD acceptances in the single JD accepted thread.

There were a couple people who posted in the single JD acceptance thread about their acceptance to the dual program. From what it looks like, they sent out their first round of admissions last week and just started waitlisting people now? I'm not too sure but definitely would be interested in knowing if more people got accepted or waitlisted. 

 

Just for more information, I have not been accepted/wait listed/rejected from the single JD program, I am still referred to add comm. I have only been wait listed for the dual program.

i am in the exact same position as you for both programs. FWIW

 

Edit:

 

Also, it does seem pretty odd that only a few acceptances have gone out and they've already gone to the waitlist... Looking back at last year's thread, it seems like the bulk of acceptances went out closer to summer. A few were confirmed as being off the waitlist, so... I guess what I'm saying is I have no idea what's happening.

I posted last week in the single JD thread saying that I got accepted to the Dual one (I didn't see a separate thread so I wasn't sure if people from both programs were posting in there). And I was told they treat the two programs almost like separate schools so it could still be a while before you hear back from the single JD (i.e. I got accepted to the dual program but still am just referred to admissions committee for the single JD)
