Waitlist 2016

Recommended Posts

Waitlisted yesterday (3.8, 156). I'm guessing this is probably a no given how far back on the waitlist I would be? I've accepted another school but not in Ontario, would that impact their decision at all (in terms of coming off the waitlist?)

No it won't. You'll be able to remain on the waitlist of your other acceptance is out of province

Added to the wait list yesterday - 3.1 CGPA, 3.5ish L2, 3.8 non-degree year (not sure if that's even considered), MA & certificate program completed this year (A in both). I'd like to think varied and unique work experience and ECs.

 

Feeling happy and also sad lol

Was added to the "waitpool" in April and got accepted last week.

I thought it was going to be a no, but as they say.. "When you least expect it...."

A big good luck and fingers crossed for the remaining hopeful.

Hi all-

Super late post.

Checked my status online where it stated that my file was closed as I had either declined, withdrew, or accepted elsewhere. I neither declined or withdrew due to having still been waiting for some sort of response. I had provisionally accepted an offer much earlier but to remain under consideration for other schools, including Osgoode, as is reiterated on my Olsas page. Any thoughts or ideas?

HI, I'm sorry to inform you that all provisional acceptances on OLSAS became firm on July 2nd. After that date, any waitlisted positions would have been cancelled.  Hopefully, you had provisionally accepted a school that you wanted to attend :(

Does anyone know if the class is full yet? 

 

School starts in roughly three weeks. I would imagine that if it isn't full then only one or two places will move on the waitlist before the first day of classes. Obviously this isn't set in stone but I can't see it being much different.

    • Noted.  I will definitely consider UNB, although if you saw my transcript you would cringe, there's lots of 50's and 60's on there from a point in my life where I would have been satisfied with a business degree.  So I'm definitely relying on some of the more holistic schools lol.  I'm capable of much better than that but it's going to take some time or luck to "remedy my standing with God and men" as Machiavelli would say.
    • Queens won't take summer courses. Everyone else will. As for which credits they take, it varies a bit by school but your L2 is roughly your last 4 consecutive semesters. But again, it varies.  Also consider applying to UNB, they'll remove 25% of your worst marks if you've graduated. They will also give you bonus points if you are from the Maritimes. 
    • OK thanks for the help.  I'm also thinking about Dalhousie as long as I can keep my grades up, and Sask if I can do a good LSAT as well as applying some other schools on access with a psychiatrist letter due to the fact that I was diagnosed with severe mental illness and this has affected my grades until this past year, where things stabilised abit and I was able to pull off a solid semester and things also going well so far this semester.  I have some good academic references and have a knack for interviews so hopefully things will work out, if not I will try again in another year after getting my cGPA up a bit higher and working some EC's in there.  But no I'm not set on any particular school; from what I've gathered here any law school in Canada is a major blessing.  I hope to someday work as a defense lawyer and mental health advocate in Newfoundland.   Sorry for asking a billion questions, but do you know if L2 usually includes summer semesters/last 20 credits or if it means last 2 years literally?
    • A 3.8 and a 160 would be very respectable. As for ECs I can't think of too many options for you. Just try and represent yourself well in the interviews and have a solid PS. That should give you a good shot at Ryerson. And if those last credits bring your GPA or L2 up enough you may even try applying more broadly (I don't know if you're set on a certian area or not). 
    • Okay thanks. I have a 3.35 for my best 10 courses, with 10 to go before november, so I could possibly get that up to 3.6-3.8, so Ryerson is probably my best chance. What are some good extracurriculars I could do? I've been scoring various shades of 160 on the LSAT which is good. But debate club is closed due to covid and I'm not doing anything right now other than working at fast food and university. I will need something on there. I have a criminal record from a misspent youth so most volunteering is out.
