I just got off the phone with Danielle. She said that although she could not give me details, they have sent out most of their offers and will not be sending out more until people start rejecting. She also said that there are people who have not been waitlisted or accepted/rejected. These people are in fact ahead of the people who have been placed on the waitlist. She seemed to say that these applicants will be the ones given first priority to spots that open up until other applicants start declining offers in June/July.


This is the best news I heard for a while. Thank you.

2.95 cgpa
3.57 L2 (3.92 final year)
168 LSAT

Access. Medical documentation & diagnosis explaining first ~2 years. Steep upwards trend as I overcame my health situation. ECs were OK - some school involvement and part time jobs. Letters were very strong IMO and I put a lot of time into my statement, but I guess everyone feels that way. I'm also very ~D i V e R s E~ if that means anything lol.

To be honest I'm a bit bummed about the news. I'd hoped the 3.57 L2, 3.9 final year and 168 LSAT would make me a competitive access applicant considering my documentation. Guess it was wishful thinking! Good luck everyone. :)

Waitlist Accepted Yesterday.

 

I provisionally accepted an offer at a different school in Ontario around mid-April. Can I still keep that provisional acceptance but remain on the Waitlist for UWO?

Try contacting Western, they may have an odd rule where you may be dropped from the waitlist with an accepted offer. Just check to confirm with them and ask if there is anything you need to do to indicate continued interest at Western

I've been provisionally accepted at Windsor for a week and just got waitlisted at Western, so I'd assume they wouldn't bother putting me on the list in the first place if I wasn't allowed to do both.

Congrats. It is interesting they are still adding people to the waitlist. Looks like a lot of people are declining their offers.

Those are some pretty decent stats. You definitely should get in somewhere.
