NEW/UPDATED: First Known Offer and Links to Accepted/Rejected Threads (2017-)

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

Does anyone know if waitlisted emails have been sent ? Or the best way the schools will contact you to let you know if you have been accepted or not. Im currently referring to OUAC and not the school websites for looking into my application status.

Hi,

It's early in the application cycle still, I don't think waitlisted emails go out till March or after. Individual schools will email you if you've been accepted, other than U of T which calls accepted applicants. OLSAS has been slow in updating acceptances on their website so I'm not sure when those will be up by. For reference I received an acceptance just before Christmas and it hasn't been updated on OLSAS yet.

I understand that many/most institutions have rolling admissions, but does anyone know when schools begin sending out rejections?

 

The old thread has that information. Looks like March or so. 

 

@ Mods -- Can we edit the original post with the links to schools like Toronto that have started already?

Is there a date where you will definitely hear if you are accepted, waitlisted, or rejected?

No there is not, with the exception of U of T according to their Tumblr.

    • I sent my transcript to UDM but not yet to LSAC.  Did you guys make that request through CAS?
    • Not directly related to law school ranking, but a healthy reminded that the success of a school's graduates isn't necessarily a measure of school quality. NYC has elite high schools whose graduates overwhelmingly place at Ivy League (or equivalent) universities.  Signs that they're good schools right?  Hmm, not so much, according to the Brookings Institute:  https://www.brookings.edu/research/evidence-on-new-york-city-and-boston-exam-schools/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=es Their research suggests that students who are "just" admitted to those schools don't do any better than students who "just" miss the admissions cut-off (i.e., functionally identical students who differ only in the schools they attend).  In other words, where kids go to school has no impact on whether they attend ivy league schools, suggesting that the "quality" impact of the elite schools are overrated.  They found similar results for schools in Boston too.  If elite schools place better than non-elite schools, the data suggests its because they admit elite students, not that they're better schools.   Something to keep in mind while ranking law schools.  
    • Did you apply for first year JD? I am confused how you would have been able to apply past the November 1st deadline. Are you a transfer student?
