What to do while waiting

Recommended Posts

I have been browsing r/lawschooladmissions and I have found that American's have a variety of options when in queue/waitlisted. This includes things like LOCI, addendums, and additional reference letters. I was wondering if the same can be said about Canadian schools. Would it be a good idea to email admissions or contact people at the schools I am interested in? For example, I have been personally invited by a dean to visit a law school (for purposes of privacy I will not reveal which school) and receive a personal tour. Is this common practice? What should I expect?

If you're still in school, the only thing you need to send is your final grades for this semester.  Otherwise, I wouldn't waste the time sending anything like the things you mentioned, because they probably won't even be read or added to your file.  I'm fairly sure of that, but someone can correct me if I'm wrong.  

As for the tour, individual tours are given all the time.  Getting invited by the Dean is possibly unique, but that likely depends on the school.  Either way, there's basically no chance the tour will be given by the Dean, if that was what you were hoping for.  If you're already admitted to the school, it's basically just an attempt by them to get you to go there.  As for what you should expect, expect to go to the general admin desk and be greeted by a current student.  The student will then take you around the school, talk about points of interest, possibly introduce you to some professors or people involved in the school's clinics if they're available, and answer questions you have.  It's nothing special.

Focus on getting the best grades you possibly can in your final semester. You never know if you'll need them for a job app next year.

You can't affect your chances now. Just let it out of your mind. Take the tour but it's likely just a formality.

    • I am not feeling as ready for my November LSAT as I would like but am going to take it and see how I do. In the meantime I would like to have the Jan LSAT as a fall back.  As I would need to register for the Jan LSAT before I will get my Nov score - do you think it would look bad if I called schools to tell them I was taking the Jan LSAT now? Also if Nov goes better then expected would it look bad to then again call them and tell them I am no longer taking Jan (in order to get my application looked at sooner)? Thanks for any tips or advice
    • @BNAAct1867Is the fast tracked civil law program at U de M open to any common law students? I know Osgoode has the combined JD/BCL program with U de M. I am interested in living in MTL for one year and I have been actively learning french, also I noticed some people mentioned the civil law knowledge can be useful even if one works in common law provinces. 
    • i'm confused do they use olsas converted cgpa or b3?
    • I was in your same situation. I emailed a lot of prof's I did highly well in and I chose two from the list of emails. we'll see how it turns out this year but try choosing profs you know would write a great letter without knowing you (some people are good hearted) . 
    • I can assure you, I know of at least two people currently doing exactly this. If the means are there to get to a goal that is otherwise uncertain, there will always be people who take advantage of those means to get to their end.
