Just received an Email asking me if I want my application to be considered for the waitlist. I am a non-atlantic resident.

Me as well. The wording was a little strange, so I am not sure if that means I was waitlisted, or just considered for the waitlist.

I know but I think we are in the waitlist. Would you mind sharing your stats?
Mine is 3.4 with drops and 160

3.8/4.0 (no idea how this gets converted to 4.3), probably around a 3.9/4.0 with drops and 155 LSAT. Non-Atlantic resident.

I also got this email and took it to mean that they will look at my file again and consider me for the wait list. I assume they emailed everyone?

I thought they are asking if I want to be on the waitlist or not. After looking at the email again, you might be right.

Nothing at all since they updated the website to indicate they'd received my transcripts in May.

Hey all. I just got an email saying I was number #1 on the PEI waitlist. But I'm a bit confused. Does that mean I only move up if a PEI resident drops or if anyone drops they draw from provincial waitlists in some sort of pre-determined order? Any thoughts or feedback would be great :-)

Just received the email, #3 on non-atlantic. Does anyone know how quickly this waitlist moves? I have to respond to an offer of admission at another school in the next few weeks.

Also just received an email that I'm #9 on the non-Atlantic waitlist. CGPA 3.75, LSAT 153, strong ECs and volunteer work, and lots of international work experience. How do the non-Atlantic/Atlantic waitlists work, do they prioritize all Atlantic residents over non-Atlantic?

Ya sure, CGPA 3.8/4.0, 155 LSAT. Also not from the Atlantic, but my whole family is (not sure if this helps or not).

No I don't think they do. I think they have a number of seats for Atlanitc students (ex. class of 100 students, 45 must be from the Atlantic), and Atlantic students will fight for those spots, and the rest of Canada will fight for the others.

I am not sure yet. I am still waiting on my #1 choice. But I have been accepted at another school as well and will need to compare the two.
