Waitlist 2016

Recommended Posts

I hope what's taking them so long is because theyre busy compiling a short list by thoroughly going through each application that they're considering. Last year the wait list was released with 600 people on it which was the most ridiculous thing in my opinion.

 

With the possibility of this year's list being just as large, at what point does one give up hope?

 

I'd be stoked to be 0-25.

Content with 25-50.

Will probably move out of Ottawa at the 50+ mark.

Hi everyone, just wanted to share some helpful info from a phone call with admissions this morning:

 

-The waitlist ranks will be sent out in the next 48 hours if all goes well, or "FOR SURE" by the end of this week

-We receive emails as soon as the portal updates, one doesn't happen before the other

-There are roughly 200 people on the list this year 

 

Good luck!

If I remember correctly, people from 1-30 range had a good shot and we're being admitted off the list. The list gets reduced every two weeks or so because a lot of people opt out of it.

Does anyone know the general size of waiting lists from years past, either at ottawa or elsewhere?

Thanks! I'm hoping I'll have an answer prior to July 2 so I can make a decision.

Do you have multiple offers? Just trying to gauge how stacked the top of the list is

Maybe someone with a higher LSAT score can correct me, but I think it's a reasonable inference that this waitlist is mixed because they ask us to send our program of study

    • I actually disagree on this one. Normally I would say some job experience in 1L summer (never underestimate customer service jobs!) would look better but I think in a COVID world where there’s a shortage of jobs or not everyone can physically go out and work due to health concerns, it’s completely okay to not work this summer. As long as you spend your summer doing something you can talk about, like what @lewcifersaid, you’re set. So that could be taking up some new hobbies, reading, helping care for a family member. I really think employers will be mindful of this during the current and next recruit cycle. 
    • What I was taught from PowerScore was to simply take the allotted time and divide it by the number of questions in the section. If you immediately are struggling with a question, go to the next question. Keep doing this til you reach the end of the section THEN go back and re-try the questions you struggled with. If you have no time, just make an educated guess and move on. It's a bad use of time to get stuck on a difficult question - plow through the easier ones to guarantee you score those points and come back to the hard ones at the end.
    • I just sent them an email. Hopefully they can be of some assistance. 
    • If anyone is able to assist, when writing the LSAT how long should each question take, per section to achieve a higher score in the 160's? Currently looking to see how long each question should take when solving for the answer. As always all responses are appreciated, but preferably those who have already taken the test before in the past.
    • Do you maybe not French? Seems honestly like the only possible reason why someone with this profile would get rejected! Your GPA is .22 above their average/median (can't remember which) for gosh sake!
