Ahh the Windsor Waitlist

 

Fun Fact: I just checked and I'm still on the Wait list from my application last year.

No idea. I remember calling in the middle of August only to be told that they don't release the rankings. My guess is they didn't reach my number and didn't bother to reject me so late in the cycle either.

That is terrible! Do you have any indication if that is typical of Windsor's waitlist? Worried now....

No idea. Sorry to worry you, but I would suggest you remain positive!

Waitlisted for the single J.D as of this morning.

CGPA: 3.6
LSAT: 156

Not overwhelmingly surprised. I have a strong soial justice foundation, with strong references and experince. However, I realize that I likely failed to properly emphasize my interest in Windsor, particuarly, in my application.

I am somewhat disheartened. Windsor and Ottawa are my top choice schools and I have not yet heard back from Ottawa (or anywehere else, for what it is worth). Wish me luck!

Accepted off the Waitlist at some point during the past couple of days.  To all those still waiting, stay positive; never give up

How can people be admitted off the waitlist when some people are still 'referred to admissions committee'?

Because they're waiting for the waitlist to open up for those people.

Yet others have already been rejected?  The whole process is so convoluted!

Yes because some people aren't competitive and won't be considered. They can't consider everyone lol

My status on myUWindsor went from "Waitlist" to "Accepted Final." Does this mean I've been accepted? I never received an email! Just want to make sure before I celebrate!
