Would you be able to post a screenshot of what the status looks like? I just checked my application and there's still nothing other than "applied". My scores are pretty similar to you guys, so i'm just wondering whether my application is missing something... I havnt heard back in a while now.

It will just say "Waitlist" in the exact same section where it says "applied". I was waitlisted last year.

EDIT: Called admissions and they've yet to review all applications. They said all applicants will have received an answer by the end of may. Just a matter of waiting now. You are not alone!

I take it you did not get off the waitlist last year then? I'm wondering how many people really get offers from it...it feels like a rejection...

I did not. Had to re-apply this year. Fortunately, I've already been admitted to one of my top choices, but being from London, Western remains high on my list. We shall see!

EDIT: Judging by the posts on this forum, only a handful of applicants got off the waitlist last year.

Between a 3.6 and a 3.7, depending on how it is calculated.

This is probably a silly question, but if I have provisionally accepted elsewhere and I press "accept" on the Western Student Centre waitlist offer, does that remove my provisional acceptance?

I'm neurotically wondering the same thing. I'm assuming accepting Western's waitlist offer has nothing to do with the other schools and is just for their internal waitlist organization. But I didn't bother calling to (neurotically) confirm this and just accepted the offer.

    • 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.
