Hey, please stay positive!

Given Windsor law's holistic evaluation processes, there should be no reason that you necessarily expect a rejection or waitlist notification.

Rather, you may shortly get in Winsor although Windsor law may not be your top choice.

Good luck!

All this waiting has destroyed whatever confidence I had in my application. My cGPA is something that still haunts me despite the fact that the circumstances were out of my control.

I have a feeling we will hear back in May, because I was waitlisted in Feb last year and was rejected in May alongside with a bunch of other rejections that went out. It also looks like waitlists have been trickling in late since last week. For the coming weeks, I believe the remainder of us will be hearing rejections and slight possibility of acceptance.

Does everyone’s application get a second reading? I was told the same thing.

I heard somewhere that applicants are thrown into piles of definitely yes, maybe, definite no. 

Maybes go through a panel to either yes, no, or waitlist... but I could be saying bull shit lol. We should hear back in May, that’s my guess

When you say 'we', do you mean those still pending review, or anyone who has not heard back yet? Bc depending on what you mean, this may not be accurate. I was pending review until maybe a week or two weeks ago, I called in and was told pending review meant they had not even processed my file yet administratively (meaning they hadn't even looked to see if all the necessary documents were in etc.) and processed my file then sent to adcom after the phone call. Maybe I just had a shot of optimism today but I feel as though not hearing back could mean acceptance, rejection or waitlist equally, but this is just my opinion :)

They do! I was explained that you can have up to 5 readings, and when there are 2 of the same decision, that's how it's made. 

I don't know if that's completely true though or how it actually works though

I was told on the phone that two readings is the maximum.

    • My B3 is the same as my cGPA because I am finishing my four-year degree in 3 years. I want to apply this cycle but I feel like both my GPA and my LSAT score are below the median, so I shouldn't even bother... Should I still apply? I am planning to retake the LSAT in January (aiming for a 170). 
    • Hey all. So I did some dumb shit when I was younger and was wondering if any of this could bite me in the ass for the bar or law school in general.   When I was a minor I was with a few friends and we jumped over a fence into a closed outdoor public pool. Didn’t damage anything we just hung around and I guess a neighbour saw us and called cause a cop came. We all got tickets for being in the public park after a certain hour but nothing serious like trespassing.     Another time when I was a minor, my friend egged someone’s house and I was driving. The owner of the house apparently recognized our car and told the cops who they thought did it (me and my friend). I was never questioned by the cops or even a call but when I later apologized to the person who got egged (cause I felt bad later, stopped talking to the friend who did it) they said they told the cops our name. I assume since nothing ever came from that, there wasn’t even a formal charge because it wasn’t prove able so the cops just wrote our names down then gave up.   I also got suspended for a day once in high school (grade 11)  because some dude was trying to kick a bathroom stall door down (he eventually did) and I pulled out my phone to record it as it was happening and apparently that meant I was apart of the vandalism.   I’ve only ever had 1 encounter with the law after the age of 18 and it was when I got a single traffic ticket for speeding/rolling a stop. After this point I stopped doing stupid shit and from then on, things are clear. Is any of this serious enough to screw me over in the future? Nobody needs to tell me how dumb a lot of this shit was, I know already lmao.
    • I am a business lawyer at a mid-sized firm that includes eight personal injury / ICBC defense lawyers. I understand these lawyers expect the pre-no-fault files to keep them busy for approximately the next five years. Four of the lawyers are senior calls who I expect will retire within the next five years or when the work dries up. The other four lawyers already have somewhat varied practices, and I understand they intend to put greater emphasis on other practice areas over time, including family, construction, estate litigation and commercial litigation. One of the lawyers recently added an immigration law practice to his service offering.
    • Just curious to know what my chances are   Thanks in advance! 
    • I'm a 2L at Western and I was accepted with similar, but slightly higher stats (158/3.7cGPA/3.72B2/L2).  I am relatively confident, given my LSAT, that my stats only carried so far and it was my 4th year non-academic experiences that ultimately got me in (I worked full time with a full course load, and did some light volunteering on the side). I would follow the advice of hmyo and rewrite the LSAT.    Feel free to PM me if you'd like to talk about this in more depth.
