Ottawa Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

Recommended Posts

So I had nothing to do at work today (lol) ergo I went through everyone who posted their rankings in the 2017 Waitlisted forum/their ranking updates, and who posted that they got in after being on the waitlist (note that some people stopped posting). Hopefully this can qualm some nerves or give some hope: 

2017 Waitlist Released: Out of 176 Applicants

ACCEPTANCES

Woodyhey accepted July 11th, was 6/176

Kiedis accepted August 12, was 46/176 

Inflex accepted August 10, was 31/176

WAIT LIST UPDATED from /176 to /71 in MID AUGUST

ACCEPTANCES

Fourthcolin accepted August 24, was 4/71 

PerniciousLaw accepted August 28, was 12/71 (was originally 93/176)

MustangSally accepted August 29, was 18/71 (was originally 102/176)

ReginaPhalange11 accepted August 30, was 16/71 

ElleWoodsJr accepted August 30, was 30/71 (was originally 122/176)

Unknown person accepted August 30,  was 42/71

PavetheWay accepted August 31, was 31/71 (was originally 123/176)

Pandora01 accepted September 5, was 50/71 

______________________________________________________

As you can see, there was a lot of movement! Keep in mind, Ottawa is known for having a bit of a disorganized administration. Last year, a few people posted saying they had rejected Ottawa a month prior but Ottawa still kept them on the waitlist/didn't register that they had withdrawn. 

Keep your heads up!

The class is full as of this minute.

No problem more offers until those provisionally accepted and firmly accepted changed their mind.

There may be possibly between 25 to 40 spots open up from next week to Discuss End of Aug. However, a great number now on wait list after Jul 3 because they have to firmly accept another Ontario offer.

Then there are those who have to choose between Ottawa and outside Ontario and those for whatever reason have to decline.

A few have to decline an offer because they can not make it to Ottawa in a short notice (offers in mid to late Aug)

Those who live in Ottawa area and those who can make it to Ottawa in a short notice can wait it out till first week of Sept.  

good luck

 

Thanks, that gives me a better understanding. Hopefully, there's as much movement as last year.

If folks have received their numbered ranking and will not be accepting their offer, could you please also post here? (This one is for the spectators). It helps people like me estimate how much movement there might be on the waitlist.

Rank: 52/298

#8 here. 

I have already provisionally accepted at Windsor, so I'm going to go ahead and wait it out until that becomes firm. I'm likely to give up my spot unless I get an offer before then. 

Looking at the previous year thread, I saw that some people had provisionally accepted elsewhere and were still offered admission to Ottawa after the firm date. I don't know if thats just an error or if those offers can actually be acted upon.

There's little risk in giving up your Windsor offer if you'd rather Ottawa. They will 100% get to your spot on the waitlist, and probably relatively soon. 

Once your Windsor offer goes firm, your Ottawa application will turn into a status along the lines of: "You have accepted an offer at another school." 
The line is gone for me now, but you won't receive an offer after your acceptance is firm- that's the whole point!

193/298. Lol. C'est la vie...

The 2016 waitlist  thread  number is close to this year 298.Do you think the 2016 thread inference will be more valuable? I will deep into it this evening. We will all get accepted soon!

I'm interested in your findings, specifically how far they got. Godspeed, my friend.

I appreciate the encouragement, I hope you get a favourable outcome. I quickly skimmed the 2015 and 2016 waitlist threads and saw that they revised the ranked waitlist 3 and once or twice, respectively. Though, I didn't do a deep dive. Hopefully you'll find better information. Best of luck!

Anyone else without a ranking yet? Since it’s the end of the day, does this mean I won’t find out until Monday?

I don't recommend taking that chance.

I’m #22. I’m really hope that means I’m in. I also hope they tell me soon so I can look for family housing and find a school and child care for my daughter.

    • Not a UOttawa student, but I was accepted to Osgoode this cycle. Law admissions in Ontario through OLSAS utilize a standardized GPA conversation 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 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.
