If you don't mind me asking, what is your L2?

Not exactly sure, considering I took full-time summer courses, and year long courses, so no calculation would be completely accurate, but I would say between a 3.5-3.6.

Does anyone know when Western usually begins accepting people off of the waitlist?

I'd expect movement next week. Western gave me until tomorrow to pay my deposit after they noticed I had not paid.

I have no intention of paying and let them know that.

Best of luck

Put on the waitlist at the end of April and haven't heard anything, just wondering if anyone has heard back who was put on the waitlist around that time too?

To those on the waitlist, I've heard from a lot of people that its moving now so depending where you are on it you may hear soon-

 

To those on the waitlist that have been given offers but know you are declining, please tell Admissions this! If you know you are declining the offer but do not tell Admissions ASAP, the offer is processed and the package gets mailed out and there is a whole delay in proceedings that will just stall for other waitlisted people. AKA whoever might take your place off of the waitlist might end up waiting a week or two to hear from Admissions when they could hear now. If you know you're declining please be respectful to everyone else and decline as soon as you can.

To tack on to my post above, the waitlist offers from this point out go out on a rolling basis depending on the responses to them. Some people that are waitlisted might have made other plans at this point and will not be accepting their offers. If these people are above you on the waitlist, their acceptance or decline is the contingency that affects your receipt of an offer. There is time and space before July 1, but it depends where you are on the waitlist and how prompt these people ahead of you (if there are such people) are with their responses. Hopefully people reply quickly. As alluded to above by other posters, it sounds as though there were a bunch of offers earlier in the week.

Question for you guys. Does Western take all of your 4th year grades into account if you guys are in 4th year and have submitted the grades?

Got an email back. Not much movement on the waitlist but "it's possible this will change in time", and "the most qualified student on the waitlist at that time – determined on a holistic basis and having regard to all our admissions criteria – is contacted."

 

meh.

Hi I was waitlisted months back and it seems as though there isn't much movement on the waitlist from the previous comments above. 

 

Just wondering though, what're the chances of being admitted off the waitlist despite it being well into July already? Should I keep my hopes high or find an alternative way to spend this coming year...
