Thought i'd jump in to provide more info.  I've been placed 6th on the waitlist.  I'm really not sure if there will be that much movement on the list as it was complied later than most years.

Did you get your number today or yesterday?

SO I'm 31/176. What are my chances? This is nerve-racking, I'm going to faint. I thought I really had no chance, this glimmer of hope is too much to handle.

Nice!!!! When's you get it?

There's approximately 80 available seats for all the remaining small groups, so assuming everyone that's accepted has registered, there should be quite a lot of waitlist movement. Of course you have to factor in the people who were accepted off the unnumbered waitlist as well.

You'll for sure get in because the will at least be 50 gone from the list because of the situation I'm on.. and I heard they took off abt 90+ from the waitlist last year. So you're good. =)

Ohhh you mean remaining seats available in class?  Nice! So yeah if you're 31 on the list you have almost a 99% chance. =)

Thanks so much, so when they send out offers are contingent on anything? Do they even send conditional offers?

80 available seats available for the small group classes. And you register for a small group class that comes with a block of other courses, so assuming that everyone that's been accepted has registered, then yes! Hope this gives you all hope!

Let's not assume that the amount of space across all small group classes is exactly equal to how many people are expected to enrol.

I spoke with uOttawa admissions today.  Everyone should know their waitlist number by the end of the week.  Also, apparently the waitlist numbers are not being updated in any particular order and it is completely random.

    • I was accepted by Western this cycle with with a 3.08 cGPA and a 3.65 L2 (and a 167 LSAT). Mind you, I also have 2 masters degrees and got an A- average in both (both were course-based). I think cGPA does matter, but they account for how long ago your undergrad was and what you've done since then, and whether you've proved that you could probably do better if you were given another chance (and ergo succeed in law school). 
    • Hi, are there any LLM applicants for the year 2021/2022 who received an admission e mail from Dalhousie? My application was completed on 31st March 2021 and waiting for a reply from the University. Just wondering whether any one of you guys have an update.    Thank you!!!
    • There are a lot of municipalities in Canada. City of Toronto hires a few articling students (most of their lawyers are former articling students and they rarely hire from outside though), along with Region of Peel, York Region, and some others I've seen. For federal government, there is only really the DOJ Legal Excellence Program. The municipalities also hire junior lawyers and I've seen quite a few postings in York Region and the surrounding areas. The process is a lot faster than the federal government which can take over a year from the time you apply. The federal government rarely hires junior lawyers outside of its articling students and federal court clerks. And you often see mid-level lawyers applying for LP-01 positions with the federal government and going through a written exam and interview processes just to end up in a waiting pool. I know people who applied in 2019 for the most recent DOJ LP-01 recruitment process and were put into a waiting pool which is scheduled to expire soon, after which point you have to apply all over again. So getting your foot in the door is a lot harder than it is for municipal and provincial. Certainly, getting into provincial is easier than municipal as there are a lot more legal positions available as well. 
    • Hey I'm a bit late here but I can give you my personal experience. It is quit the contrary of what your expectations seem to be. I did 3 years CEGEP and a 4 year Undergrad (just because I took my time). I spent some time managing a restaurant, then started a law certificate in the evening, then law school. I thought I would be disadvantaged because my background was so far away form the classic path to Biglaw. I will be 28 when graduating. I just did my Course aux stages and got 4 offers, while having a 3.65 GPA. First, they don't care about your age. If you have done anything productive in the past 10 years, it will be a great advantage to you in the interviews, because you might have more to say than anyone else. Find a way to highlight your maturity/leadership or whatever it is you have developed while others were in high school. I had a lot of misconceptions about a supposed prejudice towards older candidates, but I can assure you they don't really care. Get involved in whatever gets you going and be passionate about something. Good luck!
