Nigh irrelevant when it comes to Windsor m80, unless you're on the extremes

Waitlisted as well on January 29th... for the second time. Last year I was waitlisted on April 11th and they notified me that I didn't get in on August 31st. 

3.31 and 155 GPA.

I'm not too sure why they started waitlisting as of now but I guess it's an improvement for me from last year.

Like a day before or two before the deadline (lol), and I was referred to the admission committee mid-late November

I'm pretty shocked tbh, I almost filled out my sketch and I would argue I have way above average ECs and a PS geared towards social justice. Out of my hands now though, best of luck to all us waitlisters!

The waitlist will move, don't worry about it. Your stats are good and they definitely want to see a tailored PS and good EC's.

I submitted my applications the day before the deadline...

I have full time work experience working for the City of Toronto, managed an after school program working out of two high schools in the Jane/Finch community, help manage countless other large local/charitable events for the city, have 7+ years of experience working for the New Democrats....and the list goes on.. 
My point is, there seems to be minimal predictability when it comes to schools like Windsor that admit holistically. 

Fingers crossed that they start taking students off the wait list as soon as possible :)

Does the timing that you are waitlisted affect your chances? i.e. if I am waitlisted today does that mean I am higher up on the numbered list?

I honestly don't know either. I got waitlisted today too. I was looking at previous years and saw that many of February's waitlisters get picked up either at the beginning of April or in June. But a few did get rejected. What is concerning is the number of people not RTC'd yet.

Not necessarily. From my understanding they collect a bunch of waitlisted people first then accept based on who has the higher stats in that waitlist. They don’t necessarily go in order from who got waitlisted first to who got waitlisted last. It’s a process of elimination at that point. 

Call and ask to make sure though. I think you are asking a reasonable question for many people who will, and are, being waitlisted.

I was referred after Christmas, and I wrote the December lsat.

EC wise, I am heavily involved in nonprofit work/volunteering. I took on roles such as an ESL tutor, community coordinator, started a nonprofit organization for Syrian refugees, worked as an intake and admin in the legal/immigration field. 

Slide into my PM if you want me to elaborate! But this is just a wait list so fingers crossed

    • No worries there. Most Oz students do their damned best to disassociate themselves with York whenever possible. They won't slip up. 
    • This is exactly my point on AI not being what the media says it is. The chances of lawyers getting replaced in our lifetime is pretty small.
    • I'm selling all of my Barbri materials that I used for the July 2018 exam. The materials are the same as those for the February 2019 exam (the covers of my books say July 2018/Feb 2019). I have all the materials included in the Barbri course, including the flashcards. I can also include some handouts that I printed (lecture notes, summaries, powerpoints for mini-lectures, study plan, and overviews). Everything is in good condition, as I barely highlighted or marked up any of the textbooks (except the lecture handouts, but they're useless unless they're filled out).  I'm willing to ship these wherever they need to go (we can negotiate on shipping), and I'm open to reasonable offers. PM me if you're interested
    • I won't claim I've read all the articles, but skimming the titles only puts them into the category of what I was saying before. It's buzz. And it's confusing the tool with the real work of a lawyer. If something automated actually killed thousands of parking tickets I guess that's real "law" in a way, but I can't believe it's more sophisticated than automating something simple that you can't pay a human being enough to care about doing for what it's worth. Again, there's a difference between automation and AI. I seriously don't think anyone has tried to grapple with my point about drafting. Do you realize how many people used to be employed simply to copy documents by hand? No one seriously imagines that word processing and photocopying killed a whole swath of the profession simply because students and junior lawyers don't sit all day copying contracts in longhand. The real work of this profession is creative and analytical. And that's before we even talk about the actual advocacy and human interaction. The day computers can do that, they can do damn near anything. EDIT: I've now read about the ticket-fighting "robot lawyer" and it's actually no more sophisticated than the SimpleTax program I used until recently. That is, it's a nice little choose-your-own adventure program, with the appropriate rules filled in, but to pretend it's AI is just absurd. It's no more AI than a DIY will kit.
