    @easttowest @erinl2 That is NOT TRUE.  I have accepted my offer from TRU for fall 2020 and I’m still on the waitlist for UCalgary. The only time they expect you to rescind your offer is if you have accepted your offer from two or more universities.

    @lawlawhopeful123 DO NOT RESCIND YOUR OFFER. YOU CAN STAY ON THEIR WAITLIST. 

    That is TRUE. How dare you to say one of the Moderator is wrong.

    Fair enough. Thanks for the advice and stern words, everyone. Just to be clear, I wasn't intending anything untoward with respect to any admissions committee. However, your answers helped me realize that it would be disrespectful to pursue this course of action further, which I sincerely appreciate.

    For the sake of anyone who happens upon this thread in the future, my research indicates that schools vary on whether they allow an applicant to remain on a waitlist after having firmly accepted another offer. Of course, as the good people above thoughtfully explained, to go about doing so would demonstrate a lack of gratitude to the school that accepted you and could create a massive headache for both waiting applicants and admissions officers. Best of luck to future waitlistees!

    "my research indicates that schools vary on whether they allow an applicant to remain on a waitlist after having firmly accepted another offer." 

    Which Ontario school allows applicant to remain on the wait list?

    Hey guys,

    I'm planning to live in res as I live across the country, and I'm a little concerned they still haven't sent out offers for residence yet. I applied late (3 weeks ago), and I'm worried that I might not get a place, perhaps because they might choose to have some rooms vacant... I contacted york housing but they keep saying that they have to wait for the coronavirus task force to give them the go ahead before they send out offers for rooms.

    Anyone have insight, advice or additional info on this? we're only a month out from august and I'm stuck :( 

    I was a 2L transfer and I was able to get a  one bedroom at Passy  and i applied after the first week of July.

    I thought 1L are guarantee a room.  The moving out may have been delayed for many current tenants due to Covid-19.

    is it possible that people will still be accepted elsewhere and potentially refuse uottawa despite registration? 

     

    Anything is possible.

    If you are on the wait list, there may be up to eight weeks of anxiety and sleepless night ahead of you.

    Hey everyone,

    As you all know, this year's law school acceptances automatically become firm on July 2. I've provisionally accepted an offer from a school that's quite far away. However, I'm still on the waitlists for a couple of schools that are much closer and would be preferable for financial reasons.

    A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, but I was wondering if it were possible to remain on the waitlists for these schools while firmly accepting my existing offer of admission. If I were to email these schools to tell them that I'd like to remain on their waitlists, would that automatically decline the offer that I've accepted?

    Thanks in advance for your answers!

    Don't you think that will be unfair to others still waiting and the administrative nightmare that will create?

    You can decline your provisionally accepted offer before the deadline...and take your chance with schools you are still waiting.

    Hi everyone,

    Long story short, I just got accepted by Windsor today and my deadline is July 1st (and all provisional decisions become firm acceptances July 2nd) which leaves me with less than 48 hrs to make a major decision.

    I have been waitlisted by Western and still haven't heard back yet from Ottawa. Western is my #1 choice and Ottawa is a close second while Windsor is my safety school. So now I have virtually no time to make the decision of either accepting Windsor (and automatically getting booted of the Western waitlist and losing all chances at Ottawa), or rejecting Windsor and risk having to re-apply next cycle in hopes that I get a spot at Western off the waitlist or Ottawa during July/August. 

    The deadline seems extremely unreasonable and I have no idea what to do. I have no one to reach out so any advice anyone can provide right now would be enormously appreciated. 

    Also, what are the chances of actually getting a spot off the Western waitlist or Ottawa accepting me in July/August? Is it worth risking having to reapply to get into my preferred schools? What would you do?

    Thanks 

    I checked your stats. I think this will be your only offer from an Ontario law school.

    Oh please tell me I'm freaking out for no reason. I sent in my final grades once I got them from the University of Guelph where I did my undergrad. It says that the last day to have transcripts in to olsas is June 30th, but the one I sent in earlier says graduation is expected not completed. Is this a problem? I cannot get a new one in before that obviously. I plan on calling first thing in the morning but it is stressing me out not knowing. If I messed the whole thing up with this small error I will never get over it. Help lol...

    What problem?

    I read a post about LSAT help and I’m in a Similar position,  trouble breaking out of the 140s despite using a lot of different materials. I think personally for me it’s a combination of not having done enough timed tests as well as not having a grasp of the fundamentals. Untimed tests that I have done I manage to get a 157 highest but my official score right now is a 149. I do believe I’m not grasping the fundamentals but what exactly does that mean? For instance, for LR does that mean that someone like me is reading the stimulus but not quickly identifying the conclusion, the premise and the gap between the two?  For LG would it mean I am unable to make the ALL of the necessary inferences? And for RC, does it mean you’re not reading the passage for structure? 

    ( when I do a timed PT, The highest I get on LR is a 16, RC 13 & LG 16) 

    Sorry, I just really want help understanding how to go about I guess addressing my problems with the LSAT to improve. ( any insight is appreciated ) 

    hire a private tutor

    hi everyone, the title speaks for itself. i can't afford any classes or tutors (or textbooks for that matter) so i'm planning to study by myself starting july. 

    i think i'll be sticking with the free Khan Academy course online, but what other resources do you know of and recommend? 

    also, i found some old prep tests online, but where can i find the answers for them? 

    UofT and York are my only options because I can't afford anywhere far from home, so I know my LSAT score has to be competitive. 

    any ideas? 

    What is your GPA and B3?

    The fact that this is even a thing blows my mind....people are getting all angry over someone expressing their feelings on a site like do y'all really have nothing better to do.... y'all really just put someone down randomly because you don't like their posts?!?!....... 

    REGARDLESS of whether you think the posts seem "entitled" or full of "constant bitching", a person has FEELINGS and EMOTIONS, clearly it is not the EASIEST thing to CONTROL during these times. People handle and express it DIFFERENTLY.

    GOD FORBID you mentally abuse someone online during a HARD time (like being in a cycle so late and not hearing back) that they CAN'T MENTALLY HANDLE it.....

    holy! have some fricken love and empathy. If you don't have something nice to say, don't say it. How hard is that? 

    I went through the same ordeal twice.. It was  a learning experience (good or bad).

    Some of you may not have anyone to talk about how stressful, helpless and uncertainty you are through out this process. I hope no one get intimidated and stop posting here.

    Does anyone know whether there will be a ranked order released soon? The unknown is killing me LOL

     

    I think they stopped giving out ranking since 2 years ago.

    You may get a letter later and you have to confirm if you want to stay on the wait list.

    I posted because a handful of us on here are updating each other consistently and the mod still hadn't responded to me about deleting. Anyways, I took a long walk and feel great rn honestly. I'm all for fostering a more positive environment, but I don't think the first message really did that well! I will try to express my frustrations in a more palatable way if I do stay on. We'll see. Anyways, I'm ready to let this go. Let's just go back to regular posts on this thread. And remember, you can call people out online but they're not obliged to agree with you!

    Let's let it go. I was thinking about deleting/not checking this as often even before the comment.

    Relax, you are ok. don't let other's childish comment  affect you.

    Have a nice weekend.

    This may have been asked before and this may not be the right thread for it but:

    If you firmly accept at one school, are you removed from any waitlists that you are on? 

    I remember seeing a question related to this before but I can't find it anymore. 

    When did you firmly accepted Windsor?


  15. Just now, cmonman said:

    Yes it was. I also ran for City Council in 2018 and tailored my statements around my political and government experiences. 

    Definitely planning on hiring a tutor, LSAT score is too weak. 

    I give you a better than 50% chance if you are wait listed. I give you 25% chance before the wait list.

    You have a very slight advantage because you are in Ottawa (now?) because you can accept a very late  offer even up to late August to early Sept...

    Good luck
