Yes this is what I meant! Thanks for your answer.. and you're right it'd be negative to not do one. It's just that as I was already on the waitlist last year (sad life), I was running out of things to say haha.

Thanks for the advice and congrats on getting in !!!

Aw, well I hope you get in this year! 

But I get where you're coming from in terms of feeling like there's not much left to say. Keep in mind that they get tons of applications and while you remember what you've told them, they likely don't. 

Thanks and good luck!

Hi Guys,

I've just been added to the wait list. (happy and sad, but more happy than sad) 

CGPA 3.7     

B2/L2 roughly 3.83 

NO LSAT (currently studying for it though) 

Average ECs, Strong LRs, and a Strong PS (1/2 English & 1/2 French) 

 

Good Luck to everyone else!

Hey! I didn't post any updates before but: I followed Summer909's advice to send a LOCI, and I got my acceptance letter 4 days later.

So I would strongly second his/her advice to do so.  

Good luck to all of you still waiting!!!

The timing of those offers is likely more coincidence than relevant to the LOCIs.

Had a good cry this morning when I got the email that I've been accepted off of the waitlist! 

CGPA 3.63; LSAT 160

Great ECs and PS, and excellent LORs

Submitted my LOCI on 18 June, exactly a month after hearing I was on the waitlist. Didn't send an updated resume. 

Best of luck to those of you still waiting to hear, and soooo excited to meet all of you in September! :-D

I got an email letting me know a decision had been reached. 

No interview as of yet, however, I've taken french courses at McGill my 4 years here!

Waitlisted is one step closer to admission! :lol:

Do they consider your spring and winter semester grades in the admission process?

Hey Misszzz! Sorry to get back so late.

To answer your question, all schools ask you to submit your fall and winter grades as soon as you receive them following the submission of your initial application. Unless you get in before these points in the application process, I am almost certain they do consider them yes.

So make sure you continue to work hard in your last year :)

    • B2: 4.24 / 4.3 LSAT: 156 one write this past September. Looking for some feedback on if my chances of receiving an offer are strong or not.  I do not have a strong Saskatchewan connection.  To complicate matters though: I did disclose in the application under post-secondary disciplinary actions that I received one non-academic warning. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.    
    • As long as you pay and submit before the November 1st deadline, you have met the requirement for Ontario schools and will not be considered late. My transcript request took 2 business days after submitting to go through and show up on OLSAS (just for reference), but even if it does show up after the deadline, you have still met the requirements as long as you pay and submit before Nov 1st! So don't worry  Under FAQs on OLSAS it will confirm this!
    • Transcripts from an Ontario University or College Online Transcript Request If you attended or are currently enrolled at an Ontario university or college, you must request your transcript through your online application. By completing the online transcript request and forwarding the appropriate fees, you authorize the OUAC to arrange for your official transcripts to be sent to OLSAS; you do not need to contact the Registrar’s Office directly. You can access this section in your online application by selecting “Transcripts”. OLSAS must receive your online transcript request by the appropriate deadlines to satisfy the transcript deadline requirement. Transcripts requested when you apply online will not include the current year’s results.
    • Ummmmmm, I was under the impression that the Nov 1 deadline for transcripts is only for non-Ontario universities? 
    • Don't do it, mobile homes are horrible investments. Not only do you have to buy a depreciating asset but you have to pay lot fees on top of that. I find it funny that the ad tells people, "Don't pay rent, own your own home!" When the $858 per month lot fee is worse than a lot of rents. I would suggest you apply to live in one of the campus residences, but are you looking for a home because you have furniture you need to take with you? You should rent a house close to campus instead. If you're thinking of moving to Saskatoon permanently, that will give you a base of operations so you can look into buying something later on. Especially since you never know what city you'll land a lawyer job in, so it's smarter not to pay a bunch of closing costs only to move again after you graduate.
