When Do Rejections Go Out 2019?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering when schools will start sending out rejections. I'm getting sort of impatient with having to wait around.

When they feel like it.

According to UofT Law, the third wave will be in March and will send out refusals, acceptances, and waitlists. 

As for the rest, not too sure. I'm going to simply assume a similar timeline, if not later - say April.

Last year I got a rejection from Uvic in April and a wait listed by UBC at the end of March. Those are the only ones I can speak to.

I can't wait to get rejected either.

You can tell them you want to withdraw your application

By what means were you contacted? Email for both or did status change on the student self serve

You were accepted to Ottawa

Accepted on Dec 19. 

LSAT - 153

CGPA (OLSAS) - 3.63

B2 - 3.8

 

What other schools are you waiting for and why are you impatient?

You can provisionally accept Ottawa and pay the $500(?) deposit and keep all other Ontario schools open until they reject you or put you on wait list. If you are put on the wait list for Ontario schools, you can wait till late Jun or July 2(?).

I was contacted via email by both schools prior to a status change on the student portals. UBC let me know in May last year that all spots were full and I had not made the cut. Here's hoping that this year turns out better.

Impatient already? We are not even half way of the admission's process.

Right? From my understanding, doesn't a legal career involve a lot of waiting and patience? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

What's wrong with waiting till April 30(probably 28th or 29th since the deposit takes like two days to deliver), and then accepting the offer?

I fail to understand why people are commenting on this thread if they do not have information pertaining to OP's question. They simply asked when rejections go out. If you have the answer, give it. If you don't, why are you commenting and bringing up trivial things like their acceptance to Ottawa?

No, chrispbacon, a legal career clearly does not involve a lot of waiting and patience. 

If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me.

You can check the individual school forums for Rejected threads in previous cycles to get an idea. No one here will know exactly when it will happen this time around.  

Closing this before it gets further off track.

    • "similar wealth to my own what they were getting" Do they also have similar available resources, expenses, accumulated educational debts and personal reasons....... "The primary criterion for receipt of a bursary is financial need. Decisions are made based on a variety of considerations, including available resources, expenses, accumulated educational debt and personal factors, including medical and familial circumstances.  
    • Academic:  Going to echo The Scientist because he usually always explains UOttawa's depth quite well. Our faculty size for the English Section is the largest with 50+ fulltimes, 30 part time (technically, in reality they have job functions non-purely academic but teach courses, since we have non-JD stuff like the National Program for training QC lawyers in commonlaw, a bunch of faculty-run legal clinics/public interest groups intervening in the SCC, etc. ). Research at the faculty is also pretty strong but the university isn't that good at branding itself; e.g. our environmental law faculty has the most depth including the very best career lawyers in Canada and our tech law faculty has the most influential people in Canada for tech-related areas of law. We have people from the foremost torts scholar in Canada (former dean too) and a former Attorney General teaching 1Ls.  Other positive notes: Significant amount of panels, talks, issues and engaging topics. This ranges from the obvious SCC lawyers/Federal Courts cases where a bunch of lawyers go from the court house to panels at UOttawa, many corporate lawyers from Ottawa/Toronto, many specific interest groups (Aboriginal law, feminist law, technology law, federal law, public international law etc)  and many visiting lawyers and academics in Ottawa. The thing about Ottawa is that it functions as a sort of "gathering place" for people from all across Canada/the world so there's lots of big events in town where some people also do things at UO.  We also have a strong "revolving door" of sessional instructors, you will very likely get one per semester. They are usually hits but they are also working people with full jobs and a law graduate degree (e.g. the guy who teaches my course is an awesome first-timer and went to HYS school for an LLM). They are also fantastic people to talk to for career advice.  Downsides: We do not have nearly the depth as Queens or a few schools in advanced corporate law courses; classes can be very full sometimes (50-60 per class is typical).  Community:  Upsides: More mature community than other law schools, like 30% of the class has had career experience or a graduate degree and the average age is like 25-26. While the majority just got out of undergrad, the two groups mix quite well. I've known many people who worked for the Feds or Prov government, worked in Bay Street, did advanced research MSc's, etc. I have honestly learned alot from my classmates and each bring great life experience.  We have lots of student groups; arguably many of the X Field of Law Students Association do not do regular events except panels and bake sales but you will find lots of proactive interest-specific groups/clubs/event organizations. Getting engaged in student life can be very tricky but it requires looking in the right place.  We also got to meet the SCC at an event hosted on their lawn; it was fantastic. The Faculty seems to be the most well-connected in Canada.  Downsides: Overcrowded building; they shuffle a lot of undergrads into a few rooms and they are often in our libraries. Alot of law students were pushing for a ban of undergrads. Civ Law also uses our space and we operate like two parallel worlds. The community is less tied together; there is definitely a weaker sense of community outside of your large group (70-80) or small section  (15-20). Part of this is due to the inept law student society imo and the lack of community-building events of the orientation which did not have any social events. They virtually guarantee that cliques will (and has always) formed just by the nature of how they structured the first week. English Common Law have far few events that bring people together and French Common Law (1/5th the class) are pretty much in their own bubble. Civil Law tends to dominate the libraries though; hard-working but we have basically parallel worlds.  I honestly think this can be fixed by just giving us our own student spaces and lounge areas; offices and rooms for student groups and making it appear more community-friendly. They were supposed to give us a new building a while back but UOttawa instead spent it elsewhere. Taking proactive effort in the first 3 weeks with community-making social events and breaking the barriers that develop is also something the admin can do.   Other Notes: It can feel like "Going to Work" in some sense; our school is probably less student-focused given the school plays a significant functional role for the legal profession, Canada, and specific interests/issues. For example there was an event honoring a great Ontario judge attended by many lawyers and well-to-do judiciary members including the SCC right beside my evening class; it was definitely open to all students though.
    • Generally speaking, of a 4-year degree, U of C considers only the last 2 years-worth of courses (last 60 of a total of 120 credits). Regardless of whether they transfer or not.  If you went to a university outside of Canada, then you will want to contact admissions with your specifics.
    • Can anyone help? I understand that your last 60 credits are considered for your gpa calculation but what If you go to a different university than UofA? do all the degree level classes count towards gpa? Even if they don't transfer to the Uofa?
