If you click on the application, the JD part, it'll show you more information, and your rank should be there unless they haven't updated it yet.

Not sure if this makes a difference or helps anyone but my last name starts with an S and my rank hasn't been updated yet.

i.e. If people as high as 8 on the wait and as far back as 250+ on the wait have been updated, then perhaps they are updating people alphabetically and not by rank?

Final waitlisted today

 

Also, guys please dont spam this page. There are some accounts that are posting every single day... Try and keep it focused on just waitlist posts and not additional conversations.

Some people check this site 24/7 and to constantly get notifications and realize it's just a couple people having public conversations, it just gets annoying after a while. Please keep the convos 

in private messages.

 

Thanks 

I mean I don't really find these conversations annoying either. It's pretty entertaining and it makes the wait more worthwhile. Besides, religiously checking this page doesn't affect your chances of making off the wait list. If you're going to get off it, you would; and if you're not, then you're not.

Maybe it’s in alphabetical order? My last name starts with R and I don’t see a number yet 

I feel like they would have gotten to mine by now,  this is making me so anxious

But you probably check it hourly,

 

I predict 11am today

Shit

I was dead on if there was no technical glitch

Now I will predict your chance. Bear in mind every year is different.

Ranking

1-20               100%

21-50              80%

51- 75            60%

76-100           40%

This is based on the initial waitlist. The list will be update again

from mid July to Mid Aug.

I predict more than 5 from 1-10 will decline their offer

Good luck to those waiting

It's hard to say. Imo, being in the top 50 range is really good. The waitlist moved like crazy last year. 

Weird about your last name being in the last 10 alphabets. I have no idea how they are being updated then. Still haven't heard back and I'm in the last 10 letters too.

what make you think they release them by alphabetically order? I thought they go by how much you weight.

I agree I think it really depends on the way the waitlist moves each year, but from looking at previous forums looks like top 50 is a really good place to be. But also seems like Ottawa goes through the waitlist most years.

How much you weight? 274 got his number out already. It seems to be at random.

The admissions officer told me on the phone that after July 3rd, their should be a lot of movement as provisional acceptances are due on the third.

    • Not a UOttawa student, but I was accepted to Osgoode this cycle. Law admissions in Ontario through OLSAS utilize a standardized GPA conversion formula based upon your grades received, the credit worth, and length of the classes you have taken across all years of undergraduate. This is called your CGPA, and it is the value you will see many prospective law students citing on this website. I would first recommend inputting your grades into a calculator like the one constructed by the creator of this site (link below) to see your CGPA, and facilitate making comparisons between accepted students and your current stats easier. Citing the Ontario Universities Application Centre (link also below): "OLSAS uses a 4.0 scale. Refer to the OLSAS Undergraduate Grading System Conversion Table to determine the grading scale used for each university that you attended/are attending. The law schools equate university work on the basis of the Ontario traditional academic year system. For universities operating in the semester system, 2 semesters are combined as the equivalent of an academic year (i.e., semesters 1 and 2 are combined for first year; semesters 3 and 4 for second year). Co-op semesters are grouped similarly." Note: Your CGPA is likely to be lower than your university GPA based on how the calculation is done.  https://lawapplicants.ca/grade You will also get L2 and B3 values, which means your CGPA for your most recent last 2 years, and best (highest grades) 3 years of undergrad. Some law schools utilize these values, but not necessarily all nor even most. Also, here is some information on how your CGPA is calculated differently than your university GPA.  https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/olsas-gpa-calculations/
    • Same. I was planning to re-write it for the 2021 cycle and now that I am finally getting a decent score, the test date is not so certain anymore 😭
    • Hello guys, I hope you are all safe during this period. I am interested in applying to Ottawa University for the civil law program.My GPA is like 3.4/4.3 but I am planning on retaking about 4 classes to boost it up. May I hear a few stats about people who got accepted GPA on 4.3 pls Thank you !
    • I’d advice against this totally.    iPads are extremely expensive (particularly the pro and the keyboard you’d need). I have an iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard and Pencil (the previous Gen). It’s not bad for occasional emails or reading or watching content but for day to day use and heavy typing forget it. The keyboard is much smaller and condensed and you will hate your life. You’re also going to then buy a bother monitor, keyboard and mouse to plug into your Desktop. Not to mention there’s an issue as to whether iOS is even compatible with UT’s exam software.    If you like Apple but you want a desktop like experience, I’d pick up the new MacBook Air. The specs are much more improved then a few years ago but it’s more affordable then a pro. Very lightweight, great battery life, and ideal for taking notes on in class and studying at the library.    You can always buy an external monitor and hook up your Mac to it so when you’re home you have a bigger screen to work on.    That’s what I’d do if I were you today. iPads are not bad don’t get me wrong but they’re a far cry from a computer.    Skip to 0:54 for the super cringy classic arrogant Apple comment which I’m sure you’ve seen:  
    • Paying back six figures of loans will also be very bad for your mental health, just fyi.
