Ottawa Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

Recommended Posts

Is it possible that people who had "decision pending" status have been converted over to this "unnumbered waitlist" status with no real changes? lol

I haven't heard of anyone being rejected off the waitlist, the only way that an individual on the waitlist would not get an offer on the waitlist is if that person would be in a ranking near the bottom (199/200 for instance) and they miss the boat after uOttawa gives out all of their offers toward the first week of classes. But I could be wrong. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I am still on the 2011 wait list

I’m on an unnumbered waitlist and I only checked today from since Monday or so, so I don’t know when it happened.

Did anyone get an email response back acknowledging your acceptance on the wait list after you sent in your wait list acceptance email?

What do you think it means if my uzone status still says under evaluation?

I've sent an email and gotten a response but the message has not disappeared from my account yet. The person I spoke to told me that it would disappear once the numbered list goes up.

Are you saying that if you are a low number in the waitlist (close to 1) you will for sure be accepted? So better stats people are lower and worse stats people are higher on the list?

If you are in the top 100, you have a good shot at an offer. I don't think they place people on the list based on stats alone, it's a subjective ranking according to the admissions committee, but stats may play a role.

I was placed on the unnumbered wait list today!

cgpa: 3.54, L2 3.74

LSAT: 154

Strong LOR's and average EC's.

I will be emailing to tell them that I intend to remain on the wait list! Good luck everyone, praying for a low number as Ottawa is my top choice.

Waitlist - 159/3.6 ... Kind of disappointed as I really wanted to go to Ottawa, but will likely be accepting Windsor as I do not want to leave things to chance

My uozone has been updated to reflect my response to remain on the waitlist. I also received a direct reply from an admissions officer to my original email confirming my interest, which I did not receive last year after being waitlisted and confirming my interest. I did receive a general email last year confirming a change made to my account, but no direct response to the first email like I did this year. Has anyone else received a direct response?

    • They made 44 offers to people with less than 151? 😦
    • I really don't know how to say this without using basically the same words, again. The table is referring to the number of offers made by U of Ottawa to applicants in various LSAT bands. And then it is referring to the number of students actually enrolled from that band. So apparently in 2016, they made offers to 21 students in the 171-180 band, and 2 were ultimately registered. You're wondering why the low percentage? Because apparently the other 19 received their offers and ultimately didn't take them. Again, because they are strongly competitive applicants and presumably went elsewhere instead. More offers occurring in lower bands because there are a heck of a low more applicants IN those bands. Higher conversion rate as you go lower because now we're talking about weaker applicants who presumably receive fewer other options. This makes perfect sense to me. What is it that you don't understand, exactly? FYI, I have no idea where these posted numbers came from. But I have no trouble interpreting them.
    • Generally, the rule of thumb is to try to have your legal education done in the the city you want to be in after law school. This is because this allows you to start making meaningful connections with colleagues, lawyers and law firms in the area since year 1. I understand that you wish to go to Toronto or Ottawa after law school, so I would stick to schools in those cities if I were you. I am from uOttawa and I enjoy the January intensive term. I like the fact that I can intern at a firm/ legal clinic during the January intensive term. Since we are only required to take 1 course during that term, the intensive term allows me to devote fully to the internship (if I choose to do one), and not have to worry about classes/ exams. Also, given that my family is not in Ottawa, I find it quite nice that I could at times intern at a place close to my family during that period.  Hope this helps.   
    • Congratulations! But with documented history of depression,  3.3 and 168 can only get you into TRU and UVic? Why didn't you apply for more?
    • TRU grads seem to place decently well in Vancouver firms, at least from my observation. My completely anecdotal observation is that UBC and UVic grads tend to be represented the most, followed by TRU and out-of-province schools.
