Hey guys I know the waitlist for 2016 is going to be released sometime here in March since the new changes to the admission cycle this year. Thought I would make this topic so we could all keep in the loop of what's going on when the list does get released here in the next couple weeks. If everyone wants to post their stats and position on the waitlist it would help us all!

If it helps, I'm pretty sure you'll get in off the waitlist since youre 3rd.

Waitlist #23/100 MB resident Index score 74.78. Guess I calculated it wrong because I thought it was 74.44

Here's hoping!

I doubt the chance of 41 people rejecting is very high, so I'll probably be quite nervous once summer rolls around.

@cooper009 Received early afternoon. 

 

Waitlisted 43/100. Index score 74.120. 

 

Do you guys have any estimates of how many students on the current waitlist are MB residents?

Definitely not holding my breath on 27 people withdrawing or not accepting offers...

^ Last year, there were offers that went out in May and June before the waitlist was established, and still at least 27 people were accepted off the waitlist before it was made Manitoba only, and 9 after. This year, because the waitlist is made earlier, I would assume more people would be accepted off the waitlist. 

Good luck, everyone!!

I emailed today asking this and a few other questions. When they get back to me i'll toss it up on the forum.

Here's their answer:

 

Students who have been offered admission to the Faculty of Law up to this point have until April 1, 2016 (midnight) to accept or decline their offers. There are however,  many who have not done so. Students wait until the last minute to decide if they will attend the U of M as they are waiting to see if a more desirable offer is yet to come. If you contact me mid to end of April I will have a better idea as where we are at in terms of the waitlist, or even if we have started to move on it. 

 

Each year we (approximately) go down about 20-30 spots on the waitlist. That being said, I really cannot predict what will happen one year to the next. We will not be sending out email updates on the waitlist. However, if you contact me I can let you know how many offers on the waitlist have been made. Typically we don’t start moving on the waitlist until mid-May.
