Revised Waitlist Chances?

Recommended Posts

So i was revised from 159 to 66 (hurray) but is there an actual chance of acceptance at this point? There's 19 days until classes start. I have seen 6 others be accepted since the revised waitlist so i think im closer to 59 now. However, I just want some opinions of people who have experience with the waitlist.

It's hard to say; this years list is undoubtedly moving slower in comparison to the previous year. Initially, when I got my number in the 70's I was like perfect, my chances are fantastic, but I had expected to be in and accepted before this point. If you are in Ottawa or can make a rapid move to the city, I'd say hang in there, because they may move quickly through some of the list because people can't make a move so quick.

You were initially in the 70s?! Are you in now? You must have a great chance absolutely!

Im 30/158 on the revised list. A user who was 12/158 just posted they were accepted today. Anyone have any idea what my chances are? I live in Ottawa so could go last minute if I have to but its just so hard to plan :s

    • If they do, that's an anomaly.  Full course load is five per semester, that's the norm. Each university sets their own policy for full-time status and it varies. Queen's may be more accepting than other schools of four course semesters but, technically, that isn't the standard  definition at Canadian schools for undergrad of a full course load. 
    • I do believe that Queen's considers 4 courses per semester a full course load.
    • I don't see a lot of UofC Associates or Articling Students in Toronto at all, but there's certainly Windsor grads at every large firm. I also wouldn't place my hopes on getting into Big Law in Calgary and then lateraling over either - that's a lot of steps that have to go correctly. Getting Calgary BigLaw isn't a lay-up in and of itself. I would say go to Windsor and network, get good summaries and work your butt off in 1L and try to get grades in the top quarter of your class. 
    • Bit of an odd-duck here.    B2: 78% LSAT: 157 (one write) Sask Connection: Step-father is ex-law lecturer at UofS and Queen’s Bench and I served as president of the University of Regina Student’ Union for two elected terms.    Will these connection items help??
    • hey thanks! this is a good perspective. yeah I am open to biglaw in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto, but ideally would like to end up in Toronto. I know about Windsor having low placement rates, so I guess my question is whether to risk the low placement rate but be in Ontario, or risk being out of province but have the Calgary market open to me. I don't really want to stay in Calgary longer than I have to.
