Seems super silly that some acceptances came out on Wednesday and radio silence yesterday/today. Why are they playing us like this?? I just want to have a nice weekend and find out either way :(

Has anyone heard about more acceptances, waitlists, or rejections yet? It's literally 4pm on March 19th and it's been radio silence since October 31st deadline.

According to the U of T tumblr account, everyone should be getting a status update by email by the end of day (accept, waitlist, reject). I would think after 5pm or just before.

Waiting... 

Based on the forums of previous years, it looks like rejection emails have been sent out to all applicants on the same evening. Given that they said everyone would be notified by the end of today, I am expecting a rejection or waitlist notification by approximately 11 pm tonight. Good luck!

In what world is the "end of the day" 11 pm LOL

I mean you're probably right, but I'm shocked that it's 5:01pm and there is no answer either way.

In previous years, people were getting emails around/ just prior to 11:00 pm. Crazy right?

Did you receive an email?

Yeah at 5 PM sharp. 

I thought it was one of those group email things where we'd all get it at the same time.

were u waitlisted? I guess if so, those who are rejected will get email notification later than those who got into the waitlist.

I see; I have not received an email yet. However, it wouldn't be surprising if there were waves of rejection emails given the number of applicants. If they've begun sending out the emails now, I am thankful that I won't have to wait until around midnight like last year's cycle.

Affirmative.

They are probably sending acceptances later as well.

Kind of odd they'd send emails to people on the waitlist first.

    • Rejected Friday.  L2: 3.0 LSAT: 158 Excellent LOR and EC's. I volunteered with the two organizations for 5 years through my undergrad and worked full time as well. Recently been volunteering as a court worker.  I knew it was a long shot especially with my GPA but thought I would try anyway! Good luck to all who are still waiting! 
    • Want to work in Canada? Go to UofT. Get an articling job. Go to England on exchange in 3L.
    • Waitlisted March 19th!!!  LSAT - 145 (will be re-writing in September and so on if I don't get in for 2019) cGPA - 3.55  L2 - 3.8 TONS of work experience (even worked two jobs in 3rd year) - now currently working for the government Northern Ontario resident too!  Fingers crossed for all of us wait-listed! There's hope, I know someone who got in off the waitlist last year! 
    • From what it sounds like there has to be at least 100 most likely more. I don’t know how that works out when they have to cut it down to Manitoba Residents only. 🤷🏻‍♂️
    • I am not a 1L. One might say I am a "5L" (good grief where did the time go). But I thought I'd chime in and help you out, and also provide this information to others who may not understand how law school grading works. Law school classes are graded on a curve, generally curved to a "B" (specifically in 1L). What this means is that your individual level of achievement is relatively meaningless; what matters is how you compare against the rest of your class. For example - let's say you get a 75% on your first year criminal law exam as a raw score. In an undergrad program, that would compute to a "B". But in law school it's not so simple! If everyone else in your class scored in the 50s, and you got a 75, you might have an A+. If everyone else got a 77, and you only got a 75, you may end up with a C. Different classes and different professors are known to have different "curves". Some classes have a "flat curve" (e.g. out of 60 people, maybe 40 get Bs, 10 get a B+ and 10 get a B-). Others may have a very "steep curve" (e.g. out of 60 people, maybe 10 get Bs, 10 get a B+, 10 get a B-, 10 get an A-, 10 get a C+, 5 get a flat A and 5 get a flat C). You can picture how the same person taking these two classes could end up with wildly different grades. So to answer your second question, in order to get A's in every class, you would have to perform better than basically everyone else in every one of your classes. That's statistically improbable, because law school is full of smart, hard-working people, all of whom want to be top of their class. And the fact is, you simply cannot ALL be top of the class. I'd note that while different schools may have slight differences in how they handle grading, every Ontario law school grades on a curve like this. This is not a Western-specific phenomenon. Hopefully that helps.
