Waitlisted as of a couple minutes ago. So if everyone can do me a solid and start declining their offers, that'd be greeaaaaaat!

Waitlisted as of yesterday.

 

Uwindsor CGPA: 77.2%

LSAT: 150, 154

EC: Leadership on student club, board member at non-profit, part-time work experience, help run family business

LORs: Great professor and fellow board member

 

No special considerations with social justice oriented PS.

 

Was also accepted to Dual, but would prefer single JD.

 

Would also appreciate others declining their offers :P lol, GL to everyone.

I spoke to Marry who said that the class is almost full and it is very unlikely that they will be selecting any more applicants off of the waitlist from here on :-( still hoping for the best nonetheless.

I don't believe that for a second. There is simply no way Windsor, in the beginning of May, is done with sending out offers. I imagine there will be huge movement after July 1st.

I just got in off the waitlist?! I got an email inviting me to join the 1L facebook group and then went and checked myUWindsor and it said 'accepted final'. Strangest way I've found out about an acceptance, but I'm pleased. :D

Update: I've got an actual acceptance letter now, I was apparently accepted on the 5th.  (So my acceptance doesn't contradict lawislife's info)

I just got an offer from another law school and will be declining my offer to Windsor. There are probably many others in the same boat as me and might also decline for other offers so there is still hope!

Accepted off the waitlist. Not sure when this occurred but i only found out by logging into the mywindsor. Soo I am hoping they will send me something else soon so I know more re: timelines, etc! Very happy nonetheless.

I have been waitlisted since April, anyone in the same predicament and got accepted, or heard of cases similar to my situation, or are my chances extremely low because Ive been waiting so long? Please help!

Recently declined my provisional as well, even though I was very excited about UWindsor. Really hope someone in this forum gets that spot!

UWindsor CGPA: 73%

LSAT: 154

EC: leadership at student club, part time work mainly in sales, and recently sent an updated copy of my resume to include some volunteer work for a charity organization

 

I was initially rejected  from the UWindsor single JD program, but received an invitational email from Brian Miller to apply for the Dual JD program. After doing so, I found out i was wait listed at around early June. Now it's almost August and i'm still on the wait list. Does anyone know what the acceptance rate is like for the dual JD program? Also, what are the chances of acceptance at this point?

I am in the same boat as you. I am not sure of the acceptance rate but I still do not understand why I was contacted again to reapply to end up on a waitlist. I mean if the school has enough applicants why would they ask rejected applicants to apply!

Waitlisted for the dual program as of July 28.

 

Does anyone have an idea of what the chances of acceptance are this late in the summer?

I've read on previous years forum that there are three types of waitlists, medium, high and priority and apparently only those on the priority have a chance. Anyhow, if anyone else can shed some light on the dual waitlist chances I'd appreciate it.

Do you know if there is a way to find out which waitlist you're on?

Those who did find out in the previous years said they called some one named Jennifer Henderson, when I searched her on Google I found that She works at Detroit mercy law. I personally haven't contacted her yet because i found out about this late on friday, but if you do contact her please let us know what she says. Thanks
