Waitlisted as well, but I am going to U of C no matter what so I informed them to remove me.

Good luck everyone!

I received my waitlist notification on Friday afternoon. I wish they would've given some indication of where one stands, or even how many applicants are waitlisted, but I'm pretty happy nonetheless.

Waitlisted on Friday as well. Does this Waitlist move much does anyone know? Do you think they would answer an email about atleast how many are on the list?

I think last year one person who posted here was accepted off the waitlist.  They gave rankings last year and I believe she was first on the wait list.  She was accepted in late August or September I believe.  That said, no one really knows what will happen this year.  It depends how many people choose to decline offers.

I'm waitlisted as well, with:

L2 3.64

LSAT 158

I actually thought I would get in on the holistic review as I have an MBA, with 15 years+ of great and varied work experience.  I can't apply for any other law school as I am a single parent and can't move my son to another city.  I am starting to wonder if they actually see my age (early 40s) as a negative, even though they told me they don't consider age as a factor.  It's the end of June and I"m miserable.  Does anyone have any inside information on what my chances are? 

I know I can rewrite the LSAT and improve my mark even slightly and get in next year, but a year wait would be really disappointing at this point in my life lol.

I know someone who was ranked top 5 last year and only got in the week before classes. Don’t expect much movement off this waitlist.

Do any waitlisted people want to post their stats?  We could sort of figure out the rankings ourselves.  It might help me commit fully to starting up the LSAT studying again...:rolleyes:

I'm L2 3.64 and LSAT 158.

Does anyone have an idea why there are so few people on the wait list this year? I received an email on May 25th indicating I am on the wait list, but there seem to be less people than years prior.

There was never a real reason why they needed a 60~ person wait list when only a handful of people get accepted off of it each year. The University of Alberta (and probably most universities) slightly over offer which reduces the need to have a large wait list. It's also a school that is applied to predominantly by people from the western provinces of which it is fairly high on the list of schools people want to attend.

Besides that, Heather changed jobs during the admission cycle this year, so there's been some change in leadership among the people involved in admissions. That could result in some changes to how the wait list is done.

I also thought this year's waitlist must be shorter based on the length of this thread but then i counted actual waitlisted people represented compared to last year and there are the same amount.  We're just not having any conversations lol.

    • Congratulations!¬† Are you waiting on any other acceptances? ¬†¬†
    • I feel like a lot of comments here have been quite negative about your chances. You can absolutely go to Law School with a L2 of 3.48 but your LSAT will be key. In my opinion 10 hours a week is pretty much nothing in terms of LSAT prep. You are looking at needing probably a 165 or better. This is absolutely doable but you will need to dedicate yourself entirely to it. I had a similar situation to yours, I have a low GPA and to get into the school I want I needed a 170 LSAT. I took the test twice. The first time I scored a 165 and the second time I scored a 171. I studied a minimum of 4 hours a day 6 days a week. I didn‚Äôt burn out because I wanted it more than anything else. You can get yourself into law school if that‚Äôs what you want. But it‚Äôs going to take a lot of work.¬† As far as prep goes. I am now an¬†LSAT instructor and I will tell you that prep courses are designed to teach to the middle. You are looking at needing the 90th percentile or better so prep courses can help you get started but you‚Äôre gonna need to do a lot on your own to get your score where you need it. I like the bibles a lot and 7sages LG explanations are probably one of the best free resources out there.¬† Good luck! If you really want this, you‚Äôll get it. Although I will caution you that the LSAT is a ruthless test. Don‚Äôt be discouraged if it takes you a lot of time to get it right.¬† And finally. Remember that law school is extremely expensive in both time and money. So really think about whether it‚Äôs an investment you are willing to make.
    • Accepted yesterday.¬† 3.8 cgpa, 161, general category.¬†
    • Ya so far that's what I am doing, jotting down short sentences for better understanding!¬†
    • I am so afraid of digging into new stuff now but I'll try it if nothing else comes¬†
