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.

    • This week. I should probably add that he said "hope to" get it out by Wednesday. 😖
    • Accepted outright this morning!  Applied regular category.  B2: 3.5ish LSAT: 156 Pretty strong Sask connection!
    • That is unusual. I applied less than a week ago and was approved today. 100k at prime. (I only requested 100k but the maximum for the Dual program is 160k). Also, do not budge until they give you prime.
    • Apologies if there is a resource I missed on this (I did look). If so, I would appreciate your sending me it. I was accepted in February and gave my deposit ASAP because TRU was my top choice. I spoke with my bank about getting a professional student line of credit. Everything is lined up- I just need to be officially registered to complete the paperwork and (hopefully) be approved for the PSLOC. I contacted the TRU office and was told via phone and in a document sent by email that registration was the week of June 10th.  That was last week and I still haven't heard or seen anything. I'm getting anxious.  I want to make sure I'm following this process correctly. I don't want to sit on my hands only to find out that I missed doing something for the PSLOC and don't get tuition in time. Further, I guess I'm feeling paranoid that I haven't received any info about registration and so of course my brain is coming up with all these anxiety fueled explanations.  Can anyone shed some light on...well, any of this?? Am I going about my PSLOC correctly? I don't think I can apply for my BC Student loan until I get the loc done as I read you don't have to state you have an LOC on the student loan but you do have to state you have a student loan on your LOC app.  Also, has anyone else heard anything about registration?   Thank you!!
