Where does one check their status? Did the change happen where it used to say "applied" or is there somewhere else people are looking?

Just where it says applied

Congrats guys!

For anybody more in the know, are admissions usually in batches or do they roll out during the day?

I was just on the phone with one of the Western Admission Officers, I have very similar stats but have not heard back from Western. She told me she's waiting for my Dec LSAT score to come in even though I did score a good 16X on my Sept LSAT. So for those of you who are in the same boat, don't worry.

Is it acceptable to call in and inquire about your status? Like "hi my name is x, did i get in?"

It's just the first wave, there's plenty of time from here to April. Seems a touch early to be calling AdComm.

Yeah now is definitely not the time for panic. If you check past years, people with incredible stats didn't get in until February/March, even if they weren't waiting for an LSAT score.

I'm just hoping to hear back from at least one school by Christmas so I can confidently tell my family I'm going to law school next year.

I called because all my transcripts are from the States, and it took OLSAS insanely long to process/review them. At one point I realized Ottawa only received one of the two I send. Since I cannot track my document from Western, I decided to call Western just to be safe. Then I mentioned someone else got in.. And she told me they're waiting for my Dec LSAT.. I don't think it's a good idea to just call and ask about your stats. She didn't tell me anything about acceptance/rejection/waitlist based on my stats.

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
