Adcom/Admissions Updates

Recommended Posts

Since I called the office today I found their replies incredibly vague. When I asked about movement in August based on previous years, or whether there is expected movement the only reply I got was 'sometimes it moves, we don't know'. Other users are getting more clearcut answers.

This thread is just for reporting communications from Ottawa including updates. No discussion on any other issues, and please, no replying to other users like the folks who shut down the WL thread.

It really seems that everyone who calls get very different information, so it might honestly be tough to accept what they say. I am also guessing that they are being vague because they dont want a "you told me the first 100 would get an offer" or something like that situation. Just my thoughts!

 they have re-done the list in august the last few years, so I am hoping that is why there is a lul in offers while they prepare to re-order the list? but alas we cant really know.

Here are some reasons why the adcom might be giving vague answers:

- Do not want to give wrong info so they don’t want to be held liable. 

- They probably get tons of phone calls per day considering the size of the waitlist, and many of those phone calls are the same questions from different people. Can be annoying and exhausting. Especially when you have other work to do. 

- Applicants who call might be making their own conclusions from that call and/or exaggerate or misunderstand what was said over the phone. 

- You might have gotten a more helpful person over the phone at the time. I think there is more than one person who can pick up the phone. 

 

@Hopeful3101 they do not re-rank people in the sense that the person ahead of you on the initial list can be behind you on the revised list. They re-rank based on how many people have accepted their offers or dropped out the list. For instance, let’s say you were 60/298 on the numbered list, and then 30 people accept or drop out, then you will be 30/298 now.

Those are my thoughts also. Last year it seems the new list was released Aug 15th, so I'd imagine we would get asked this week also if they have a similar timeline.

I think we will get an email asking if we want to stay on the updated waitlist first and foremost. 

Straight to the revised list unless you want to specify that you no longer want to be on the list - Then you would have to email the adcom and notify them. At least that’s what I was told over the phone last week.

I just got off the phone with someone at Ottawa and the woman said that she has no knowledge if a revised waitlist will even be coming out. She couldn't speak to if or when that would occur. She said to accept the number you have and if you are at the top of the list an admissions officer will contact you. Suffice to say that I registered for an LSAT course this morning.

    • A rejection email. I think it's beneath the Supreme Court of Canada to tell people to 'please fuck off,' but, well.... we look to substance, not form.  I believe the Court informs applicants not invited for an interview in March. I wouldn't expect anything before then.
    • Yeah I wouldn’t worry about it. When schools say they take the highest LSAT I’ve yet to see evidence that they don’t mean it. 
    • I’m sorry you’re going through this. As you know, law school is, without a doubt, a stressful environment for many if not most people. But I know plenty of people who entered law school with depression, and other mental illnesses, that have excelled nonetheless. I think it’s premature to frame this question in terms of your future clients. The real question here is whether you will be okay in law school. I assume you are already getting the professional help you need—to state the blindingly obvious, suicidal thoughts are extremely serious and, while I have no experience here, I wouldn’t do anything until you have addressed those. Anyway — ADHD and depression are not uncommon in law school. And I don’t think you’d be making a bad decision for anyone else by going to law school. And, on the contrary, if you have a genuine desire to be a lawyer, I think it would be a shame to talk yourself out of the opportunity unnecessarily. If you are accepted, perhaps consider deferring for a year to reevaluate?  I guess all I am saying is that (i) depression doesn’t preclude you going to law school succeeding and being a great lawyer but (ii) in the short term you need to put your health first, especially if you are having suicidal thoughts.
    • Hmmm. I still haven't received an email from TRU. I didn't even get one when my file was complete. I will probably give them a call this week to see what is happening.
    • Hey @learning31, the following are their stats: 152, 3.77 L2, 3.2 CGPA 151, 3.6 L2, 3.3 CGPA 154, 3.1 CGPA Since last year they looked at L3, none of the above L2s are confirmed.
