Reffered to Admissions Committee

Recommended Posts

My status changed from incomplete to refered to admissions committee. Anyone have any idea what this means? I tried looking at previous years but I haven't found anything about this in January. For reference I only applied to the single.

 

Good/bad thoughts?

 

Edit: I realize I spelled referred wrong but I don't know how to change the topic title

I think this is a good thing! Perhaps they will finally begin sending out acceptances this week :)

I've been 'referred to the the Admissions Committee' since the end of Dec. I wouldn't put too much stock into it.

Maybe this may help others....is your last name near the beginning or end of the alphabet, similarly is your first name beginning or end of the alphabet. I am trying to make some logic out of their updates, if its just random or done alphabetical. If not alphabetically, are your stats particularly high?

Mine still says incomplete waiting for documents :|

 

Mine is the same - still waiting for documents....

While everyone was waiting for GPAs to be posted, I noticed those who were posted earlier were all from Ontario. However, that's most likely due to OLSAS sending requesting/sending Ontario transcripts electronically while transcripts from elsewhere were still physical copies. 

 

I wouldn't put it past Windsor to have some measure of geographical bias though.

I sent Windsor an e-mail about my status saying incomplete to see if I needed to send them something else and was told that it just meant the data hadn't been entered yet, which, given the number of files, typically takes until the end of February.

Why such a long time this year? That means offers could possibly start getting sent out in March! Did more people apply to Windsor this cycle and that’s why they are taking longer?

That's all they wrote to me. The whole email was 2 lines saying that I shouldn't worry about it because the status just meant they hadn't entered the data yet and that entering everyone's data usually takes until the end of February. Based on the language they seem basing this estimate on what has happened in previous years, so I imagine the wait won't be any longer or shorter than usual.

 

I don't really know anything about Windsor's admission process, but my undergraduate cGPA is comparatively very low, so it's possible I'm at the bottom of the pile and they will start making offers before they have finished inputting all the data? :)

I got a different message as of today...

 

"File Complete to be Evaluated"

 

I also went through the application process last year and didn't see this on my application then, nor have I seen it around LS.ca, anyone else receive this status?

I also have this status. It appeared on my application sometime yesterday afternoon.

I just checked mine and it is still incomplete as well. They are still waiting for documents. Maybe they complete the applications by region? I am in Vancouver. Maybe by when it was submitted? Nov. 3rd OR maybe last name? "J"

 

What do you guys think?

Mine went to "referred to adcom" only about 2-3 days ago...I guess Windsor is notoriously slow with their acceptances? I could use one from them right about now so that I know I'm staying in Ontario :P

I've long given up on trying to figure out how adcoms deal with their applications. Especially for Windsor, given their holistic method and lack of ANY acceptances to date.

 

However, for the sake of....whatever.... I'm in Ontario and last name starts with M.

I am positive applications are processed first for applicants within Ontario. It was like that for when GPAs were converted/uploaded and it looks like its this way for processing documentation.

 

I'm from Alberta and am incomplete.

    • Your conclusion is essentially contradicted by your story. All I got from that story was it is easier to get an A at Osgoode than UNB. 
    • And I just saw that you decided, haha. Excellent choice! 
    • UVic is perfect for what you are interested in! Very indigenous focused even if you aren't a JD/JID (which seems like an amazing program as well). There is a very active environmental law club here as well as a legal clinic. UVic also has some of the leading professors in indigenous law (John Borrows, Val Napoleon + a lot of other fantastic profs). Tuition is MUCH cheaper here too, which more than offsets the cost of living. I was offered a $20K scholarship to go to Western and it was still way cheaper to go to UVic sans scholarship. Most of my tuition this year was covered by bursaries anyways. Everyone is very collegial here, midterms are help-not-hurt, and the weather is amazing for most of the year. UVic also has a great Co-op program with lots of cool job placements that you can get into right off your first year.  In terms of negatives: Victoria is expensive (and possibly inconvenient geographically). But it is a fun place to live and the lower tuition offsets things significantly.  I obviously haven't gone to Osgoode, but the idea that any school in Canada is more prestigious is nonsense IMO. Employers are more interested in your personal background than which school you went to. The only difference between an Osgoode grad and a UVic grad at the end of the day is that Osgoode is probably out an extra $50-70K for the same degree.  With your LSAT score the biggest problem you should have is which scholarships to turn down!
    • I am with CIBC for about 7 years now, and my father was with them for close to 15 years. So, I thought I'd see what they offered for student loans. My credit score is above average. So, it isn't terrible.     Last month, I went to talk to CIBC about securing a PSLOC. The loan officer wasn't rude per se, but how should I put it? They were the opposite of obsequious. They were very stern, and it felt like they could care less if they got my business or not.  They offered prime plus 1%, I tried negotiating on the rate but they wouldn't budge. They required a cosigner. They wanted copies of mine and my father's tax returns and pay stubs before they give any more details about the LOC. Details like how much I'd get approved for.  Perhaps the person I talked to wasn't experienced with PSLOCs or it was just a bad apple, but I just walked out when they wouldn't give me more info.  I spoke with RBC the week after, and they offered prime plus 0.5% with no payment required on the principal until 2 years after graduation. I believe they said they could approve up to 85k. Also, that we can do an application without cosigner, and if it comes back negative then we do one with cosigner. They were very cordial and accommodating. I spoke with Scotia after that and they offered everything RBC did but better. They offered prime plus 0%. The same no principal payments until 2 years after graduation. They could approve up to 135k. The same deal with the cosigner that RBC said. They sweetened the deal further by offering a 10k credit card on top            I wanted to speak with TD after that, but Scotia won me over, so I didn't even bother meeting with TD.   Also, keep in mind, I haven't submitted the application yet. I am just in the initial phase of doing research and collecting info. These are just my experiences with interacting with these 3 banks regarding a PSLOC. I am still waiting on one more university to decide where I want to go before I file an application. 
    • law schools want at the latest, a january score, if you've applied that cycle. the notorious windsor only takes up until the november lsat yup, that's also enough time to study good luck man
