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!

    • probably nothing. but your marks do matter. you also said: "almost always", "i am hoping that will be the case for me" so i think you already know the answer? do the best you can and you don't have to worry also i don't necessarily think taking a pass over a letter grade matters. everyone else is in the same situation as you
    • Thank you everyone for your response! Any bit of insight helps. I’m currently living in London Ontario with my family - I have 2 kids going to school here - and wondering if commuting via train is a possibility. Not sure if anyone has done that before. I guess I’ll just have to wait till they release the class schedule and plan from there...
    • I'm an international student currently in the U.S (I'm an Indian national) and I've been looking into Canadian universities. I wanted to know what are the experiences of other international student out here, how hard was it to get accepted, what were some troubles you faced, how easy was it to apply for a study permit? What were some challenges you faced when applying? Also the people who have already been accepted and are on campus, what's Canada like for you? And how's law school in general? Do you feel accepted? Homesick? Let me know! I'd love to hear all your experiences!  
    • Salut! Je te souhaite de belles études à l'UdeM. Je pensais qu'il serait peut-être utile que je laisse ici quelques petits points intéressants en ce qui concerne le certificat de droit à l'UdeM, si ton but (ou celui d'une autre personne) est d'intégrer le BAC en droit. Je m'étais informée à l'université, et il m'a été confirmé que l'admission accepte en majorité des étudiants de d'autres bacs (et possiblement certificats, mineures, majeures, etc) que d'étudiants du certificat en droit de l'udem. Ceci est dû au fait que les candidats souvent seront des candidats de TRANSFERT, et que donc le contingentement en deuxième année est beaucoup plus haut qu'en première année. Je suppose que ceci est de moindre importance si on dépose sa candidature à la première année, mais je ne sais pas si c'est faisable.  Bref, en raison de cela, les notes requises doivent être très élevées (visant 4.0+). On m'a dit que très peu de gens (environ une dizaine je pense) sont acceptés du certificat. Ainsi, il est très important de donner de son meilleur durant les études au certificat pour maximiser ses chances d'être admis.  Je souhaite à tous succès, en espérant avoir pu laissé des informations pertinentes.  
    • I realize I am a year late lol, however, I figure answering this would help other people as well. I have studied at both UdeM and UQAM. While UdeM does have a great reputation, UQAM is not in any way a bad university (at least for the political sciences & law dept). I have loved my experience at both universities. UdeM is quite far and that can take a toll on you if you're not a morning person as I am lol.  UQAM sadly has a bad a reputation, mostly because of the social engagement of the university, and the youth of the dept. I can tell you that the teachers (chargés de cours mostly) I had for law courses at UQAM were very good. Most of them have written quite a few doctrinal writings, and are involved in a lot of researches. Some have studied at UdeM and Mcgill. Anyways, point is, the quality of the teaching is great.  You might be the type of person to be set off by political and social engagement; in that case, a more rigid and straight-to-the-point university such as UdeM might be better for you. UdeM does shine with its reputation. The university offers great courses. You have to be prepared for the curve grading too; because of this, people are extremely competitive, and might not be the best people to socialize with! UdeM also participates in ''la course aux stages'', which is good if you're interested in big law. I am not very well versed on the course aux stages, so it's better to investigate the forum on that matter, than take my word.  UdeM is indeed quite big, but UQAM too : prepare for some walking lol. Most is connected to the metro so it's not so bad.  UQAM overall has a better ambiance and sociable people. The grading is litteral, so the competition isn't as strong. Most of the students are socially involved, so that makes them more empathetic.  You have to know that UQAM has the reputation to go on strikes often, whether that is true or not, I cannot say. During my time there (1 year), there was indeed a strike.  FInally, I can honestly say I can see very good sides to each university, and I have enjoyed my time in both. Go with what suits your ambitions and personality best.
