Did they mention whether they've looked at your applications at all? or were you waitlisted  based off your index score alone?

I didn’t clarify that...from what it sounds like this was solely based on my index score

Hey there, just wondering: did they reveal to you what your place was in the waitlist? I believe you're able to confirm this with them, right?

They are still waiting on feb LSAT scores so won’t be able to give me a number until after that...

When I asked the admissions last year, they told me that the waitlist doesn't get "established until late spring".

Hi there - has your online status changed? I have pretty similar stats.. but my current status is still "File Complete - Awaiting Evaluation". Just wondering if I should phone in or not too. Thanks so much!

Hello, so I take it it's not inappropriate to give them a call, tell them your index, and ask if you'll be put on the wait list or accepted? Or did you give them your name and they looked you up on their files and told you your chances?

Is there a reason you’re unwilling to tell them your name? 

I imagine giving them an “index” over the phone and asking them to more or less “chance” you is inappropriate.

I also called the admissions office to find out my status (I have an offer from UVic with deposit due next week) and they informed me that I have been waitlisted ...as I had expected based on my stats below :P

cGPA (confirmed): 81.42

LSAT: 164

Index: ~ 90.97

Just gave the admissions office a call. They didn't refer to it specifically as a "waitlist" but told me that they've actually overextended their admissions offers and will be waiting until the first round of admits accept or decline (deadline of March 15) before continuing their admissions offers, including to those who have new scores from the Feb LSAT (which they haven't completely processed yet either).

They also confirmed my GPA on file. In case you're wondering, for me it was 82.86. I have a 165 LSAT which leads to a self-calculated index score of 91.55.

Because March 15 is only a week away, I'll wait a little longer but I'll likely withdraw from the waitlist to open my spot up.

Best of luck!

    • Hello, I'm in my 4th year at UofL in Calgary and currently have the following stats: CGPA: 3.21 L2: 3.53 B3: 3.32 I'm practicing the LSAT test and lowest I've had is 163. Highest I've had is 167. Work Experience: I've been working in Business Development full-time now for about 3+ years. Before that worked at a bank full-time and before that retail jobs. Always worked 30+ hours a week to support family. Reason for low CGPA is one BAD year dealing with a lot of personal problems. I know I won't get into Osgoode and UofT. But my goal is Queens. My list includes Dal, UofC, USask, Western, Ottawa and UBC. What are my chances in these schools? What about the other schools? I'm open to go to any school that takes me but would LOVE to go to Queens. and If not, then one from my list.
    • Definitely hard to say but I think I've done some considerable volunteering and leadership stuff that I really hope helps my case, but again it's really hard to know what other people applying to a holistic school look like.    I did a lil calculation and my CGPA is only like 2.9, I have some serious regrets about how I used my time in my first few years of university but not much can be done now. I am taking 4 more classes currently to bump myself but as I'm sure you know, its insanely hard to see a lot of movement. I took 4 spring/summer classes and got 4 As, it only moved my L2 GPA by 0.015. Sigh. I'm also signed up for 4 more in Winter but those aren't considered. So if all goes as planned i'll be more in the 3.6L2/3.0 CGPA range going into the 2020 cycle but obviously that doesn't help me for 2019. 

      Anyways, just trying to be as strategic as possible. Again, my expectations are not high and I'm not banking on getting in for 2019- obviously it would be a nice surprise though if I managed to claw my way in somewhere 


       
    • Sorry guys, this is probably a really stupid question but I've been working on applications all day and my brain is sufficiently fried. I'm not seeing a supporting documents deadline on the OLSAS website or the Windsor Law site. Does this mean my actual references have to be complete by November 1st, or is there an actual document deadline I'm just not seeing? Also, does anyone know what the outline for these reference letters look like? I'm trying to advise my referees on what is required but I'm having a hell of time finding out more details. 

      Thanks
    • I called OLSAS today with the same question. The asked me to get the college to send OLSAS a letter saying that they can not provide transcripts. And they said the deadline for "these sort of documents" is later than November 1st. so I shouldn't worry if it doesn't get there by November 1st.
    • Yeah, it forces you to make choices.  ie. who do you choose between: -your dream firm where you sense you did not wow them but they are lukewarm on it (can you turn things around and wow them at the dinner?) -a firm you sense was wowed by you but you are lukewarm on it (if you have a good experience at the dinner will you like it more?) -the most "prestigious" firm you interviewed for as you see it -the firm you threw in on a whim that you weren't expecting to like but find intriguing
