Did they mention whether they've looked at your applications at all? or were you waitlisted  based off your index score alone?

I didn’t clarify that...from what it sounds like this was solely based on my index score

Hey there, just wondering: did they reveal to you what your place was in the waitlist? I believe you're able to confirm this with them, right?

They are still waiting on feb LSAT scores so won’t be able to give me a number until after that...

When I asked the admissions last year, they told me that the waitlist doesn't get "established until late spring".

Hi there - has your online status changed? I have pretty similar stats.. but my current status is still "File Complete - Awaiting Evaluation". Just wondering if I should phone in or not too. Thanks so much!

Hello, so I take it it's not inappropriate to give them a call, tell them your index, and ask if you'll be put on the wait list or accepted? Or did you give them your name and they looked you up on their files and told you your chances?

Is there a reason you’re unwilling to tell them your name? 

I imagine giving them an “index” over the phone and asking them to more or less “chance” you is inappropriate.

I also called the admissions office to find out my status (I have an offer from UVic with deposit due next week) and they informed me that I have been waitlisted ...as I had expected based on my stats below :P

cGPA (confirmed): 81.42

LSAT: 164

Index: ~ 90.97

Just gave the admissions office a call. They didn't refer to it specifically as a "waitlist" but told me that they've actually overextended their admissions offers and will be waiting until the first round of admits accept or decline (deadline of March 15) before continuing their admissions offers, including to those who have new scores from the Feb LSAT (which they haven't completely processed yet either).

They also confirmed my GPA on file. In case you're wondering, for me it was 82.86. I have a 165 LSAT which leads to a self-calculated index score of 91.55.

Because March 15 is only a week away, I'll wait a little longer but I'll likely withdraw from the waitlist to open my spot up.

Best of luck!

    • I applied through general and my best LSAT score was in December. I did not write in February! At this point I am just looking for an answer either way but I will remain hopeful!
    • I am not sure that is entirely true, at least from my experiences. Many of my friends at other schools have had much more work to do for similar courses and I also found their work harder at times. I also think it depends on the professor. 
    • Also, Brock is a "party school." So you might go there expecting easy grades because "if you can walk and talk, you can go to Brock" and get distracted by all the social stuff, whereas you might focus more at U of T because other serious students you meet motivate you. *not to say there aren't smart, serious students at Brock and party animals at U of T too - I'm addressing the stereotypes. 
    • I don't believe it. It's simply true. To pretend otherwise is to spread falsities to high schoolers keen to go to law school who may miss out on an excellent institution like u of t, simply because of fear that they won't get into law school if they did. Not that highschoolers should care about getting into law school 4 years later. But they do. So at the very least let's not get them missing out on excellent education in light of wholly unsubstantiated claims.
    • I just officially finished 2L yesterday, and I have to say law school has been one of the best times of my life.
