In queue?

Recommended Posts

Spoke with admissions today. She said very few people should be in review at this point. They accept from both waitlist and queue. They said they're accepting from queue if they come across an exceptional candidate as they're reviewing. They're still waiting on some provisional acceptances and offers that have yet to be responded to that went out last week.

So is it safer to be on waitlist than queue at this point?

No idea. My speculation: If you're an "exceptional candidate" they haven't got to yet in the queue for whatever reason then it's better to be in queue. If you're not then I would suppose it's better to be in the wait list because people are still being rejected from queue.

My stats are not "exceptional" so I don't know why I'm still in the queue, but my hope is still alive. I did fill out part B. 

 

I guess we shall see tomorrow or Thursday. I presume they aren't making offers on Canada Day (Friday) or Saturday.

Did you have a strong PS?

I think they update in the morning.

Adcomm says it's after 5 but it appears to update literally anytime after 5 including the next morning.

    • In queue Jan 14/21. LSAT: 153, 158 (July) cGPA: 3.95 
    • One thing I did for RC that brought me from a 162 to a 166 (I didn’t change anything else) was writing a one sentence summary for each paragraph. It really helped me synthesize the info and focus because I found the passages kind of boring tbh and it was hard to focus on them. Hope this helps and good luck! 
    • If you are 100% working for that partner, you may very well find yourself looking for a new position when that partner retires. If you think their retirement is not far off it would be prudent to either try to diversify your practice by working for other partners as well, or be proactive and look for a new position before that is forced upon you.
    • There is significant variation across the province. I'm not clear on what happened elsewhere, but my understanding is that all Ontario university law programs were online in some way this fall. Do correct me if I'm wrong. I'm 1L at Osgoode, it was fully online for me. Upper year students there were clinical and intensives that had an in-person component and the criminal trial advocacy program ran in person for at least part of the fall. For 1L there was a two week intensive in August-September that offered optional in-person attendance for a few students for a couple sessions while the rest of us were on Zoom.  After what happened this fall at some universities where they started in person and then had to move online, I think administrators will be a little more reluctant from the beginning to start with in-person when they know from their experience this year that it was not possible to follow that plan.  From a public health perspective, medical leaders want universities to stay remote as much as possible. Osgoode and Ryerson are both embeded in neighbourhoods where people experience significant marginalization and limited access to health care and have extremely high rates of Covid. Bringing thousands of students into those neighbourhoods is irresponsible. At U of T the risk is not as significant for the immediate neighbourhood but it is for the region as a whole. Our vaccine roll-out is not proceeding quickly enough to ensure vaccination rates will be high enough by September, and keep in mind that decision has to be made much earlier and it's easier to stick with the status quo than it is to change. This past academic year, the decision to be online for fall was made by middle of July at Osgoode, and by August, we knew winter would be online. My best case scenario prediction is that fall will be fully online, or as fully as it was this past year, and by winter, some universities will have in-person as an option but the option to stay remote will have to remain available for equity reasons.  
    • Thanks for the advice/input everyone! I feel like I'll have to mull this over for a while, but I feel like I'm leaning towards staying on the team. My coaches are quite supportive so if I can't handle the time commitment I'll have some flexibility.
