Ottawa Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

Recommended Posts

Out of curiosity does anybody know why the waitlist is larger than it was last year? It seems odd that the admissions committee would place 298 people on a waitlist if they did not anticipate contacting a large number of those people...

My waitlist number is 91 and I'm going to wait out.  Anyone know what my chances are? was hoping to crack the top 50.

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. 

Start looking

Probably before end of July

I emailed them asking the same thing, I figured at 186/298 what do I have to lose by asking them straight up. I’ll post the response when I get it.

Ahhh! I am 77/298! I am estastic! 

I am happy to just be on the waitlist to be honest, but what are my chances?

I reviewed the last 2-3 years and from analyzing the forums, the first 100 have always been accepted!

In 2016,the rank came out on June 15.The last person clearly symbolized his/her ranking was 79/257,was accepted on July 20th. But some people ranked higher removed from the waitlist when they got their number.The final waitlist was 83 . No more information on the revised waitlist. I am a little worried now.:wacko:  In 2016&2017, some people off the waitlist  before it's ranking which can be found on the accepted thread.  Also, the admin gave the whole number out lasted for weeks. I just guess this year they try new things ,only the final waitlist  and do not have initial waitlist ,so there will be huge movements after July 4th. The admission process will be quicker  this year.  I hope I am right. iPad typing is not easy.I hope I can use computer and write more later.I even looked at 2004 thread. Cannot breathe now.

Waitlisted 80/298. Have provisional offer at another school but Ottawa's my #1. Any thoughts on likelihood of admission?

Basically none. Your provisional offer will go firm on July 3rd and you’ll be removed from consideration at Ottawa after that. Unless there’s a lot of movement next week.

103/298... also have a windsor offer turning firm on July 3 

Just take Windsor. UOttawa won’t reach the 100’s by July 3. No way. 

Law school is hard to get into so just take what you already have and leave. It’s for your future and the better. Trust me. 

Good luck my friend.

Edit: This applies for everyone else who is 100+ and they already have offers from other schools. July 3 isn’t too far from now.
