Also refused, was 19 on revised waitlist.

I just checked, and mine says, refused as well. I guess it's back to the drawing board for all of us. Stay positive everyone, I know it's pretty heart breaking, but I believe everything happens for a reason. Good luck to everyone applying again for next year.

What is the purpose of "under evaluation" then refuse?

That is the disgusting part.

 

Yeah it was super sad honestly. Was under evaluation for hours. I defs thought an acceptance was coming. Sorry to everyone who was refused!

Maybe it was a system error.

Call them.

That's strange that they would indicate refused on their system. I don't recall that ever happening before for those on the waitlist. Typically, schools don't contact everyone left on a waitlist at this point.

It might be worth confirming with U Ottawa but for those who didn't get in, take a couple of days to be upset/angry, and then think seriously about what you need to do to make yourself more competitive in the next cycle. The first thing you should do is to ask for feedback on this year's app and where you can improve. Once you know that, set about doing whatever is necessary if you are interested in reapplying. Simply reapplying with the same package as this cycle isn't likely to bring a different result.

Keep your chin up and best of luck to all of you!

2009 they were refusing people off the Waitlist. 

This is my second time applying and I called for feedback and significantly improved my stats but still not good enough..

Well,  2009 is a long time ago. In recent years, I don't recall them doing this.

    • I took the LSAT in July and was one of the test centres that got the digital exam. I personally found it way better than the traditional paper exam. I personally didn't have any issues with it, but i've heard of people who did. I especially appreciated the timer in the top right which said exactly how much time you have left in the section. One thing I did which I found helpful (although I realize it may not be for everyone), was I tapped on the time to hide it for most of the section to prevent me from constantly checking on it. Then, when there was 5ish minutes left in the section, I would tap it again to make sure I filled in all the questions and got to any questions that I may have flagged to review. Overall, in my one experience with it, I found that there were no hiccups and I actually found the timer and other aspects (such as highlighting, changing fonts, screen layout, tapping the bubbles as opposed to filling them in with a pencil, etc.) of the digital version to be beneficial to me. It's definitely not for everyone but I preferred it to the paper exam.
    • Also read Hoju’s absolutely amazing response to one of your earlier threads here:   Now read it again. And then one more time.
    • Stop drinking coffee and instead of walking, go for a run. You have a ton of nervous energy you need to 1. Expend and 2. Stop feeding.  I am not going to internet diagnose you. But I want you to consider whether you are using this site for reassurance seeking and/or obsessive info checking. People who have Anxiety (capital A) fall into a number of recognizable patterns. One of those is obsessive information gathering, and one of those is reassurance seeking. These patterns address a sense of paralysis and mask the fact that you cannot move forward with decisions and have peace of mind. If you find you cannot function - and even begin to panic - unless some one is constantly right there with you telling you that you are making all the right choices and setting out exactly what happens next, and assuring you it will all be ok, you are probably getting in over your head and Anxiety may be the culprit. Anxiety is a real honest to goodness diagnosis along with Diabetes and Depression. If this is what you are dealing with, it’s  really time to stop feeding it and start treating it.  You can feel better. This can get better. But get help.   Edit: in case this comes across as presumptuous, I have Anxiety. I treat it. Before I did, Life was pretty fucking shitty. So this is all with the very best wishes for you going forward if this is your particular demon.
