I have a 3.72 GPA and a 164 LSAT and still haven't heard back. Applied Access as well.

I'm sure we'll hear back soon, whatever the response may be.

CGPA or L2?

I have to say it's very strange you're not in at Western. Maybe they are more holistic than we give them credit for. Then again you're in at other schools so maybe there's a lot of weight on the essay scenario thing ahahahaha

I thought I was very diplomatic in the scenario part but I tried to apply a social justice oriented letter to a school not known for that - which I guess is why they don't want me, there's only 11 days left if they want me or else my app will be cancelled for U of T

Unless you hear a rejection it doesn’t mean they don’t want you. If you haven’t heard anything it could very well just mean they’re still looking at applications. Although I am curious, if you have been accepted to other schools and aren’t looking to attend Western, what is the hold up?

i have 169 LSAT, L2 = 3.8 and haven't heard back

My CGPA is 3.0 tho, i got straight 50s my first year.  perhaps western has started moving towards a more holistic admissions process?

It's most likely they are moving towards being more holistic, after all it seems to me that it would be hard for any school at this point to focus solely on stats.

On the other hand, Western does not ignore CGPA, so maybe that's what's holding you app back. Regardless you have a hell of an lsat, congrats! I'm sure you've probably already got some other acceptances.

My stats are similar to yours, I hope to apply this Fall.

For those wondering, Western does have a blog updating current applicants. It seems a lot of people have not discovered it for whatever reason—i only found out about it a few weeks ago.

Round of new offers coming Thursday the 11th! Good to know, I've got my fingers crossed.

I actually got an email from Western admissions yesterday asking for more information. Hopefully that means my file's currently being reviewed and I'll get to hear back in this next wave!

What kind of info where they looking for? I haven't heard a single word from them. Would like to hear anything even if it's for more info.

I applied Access so they just needed some more information about that. Nothing too crazy but at least I know it means they were looking at my application.

    • I took the LSAT in July and was one of the test centres that got the digital exam. I personally found it way better than the traditional paper exam. I personally didn't have any issues with it, but i've heard of people who did. I especially appreciated the timer in the top right which said exactly how much time you have left in the section. One thing I did which I found helpful (although I realize it may not be for everyone), was I tapped on the time to hide it for most of the section to prevent me from constantly checking on it. Then, when there was 5ish minutes left in the section, I would tap it again to make sure I filled in all the questions and got to any questions that I may have flagged to review. Overall, in my one experience with it, I found that there were no hiccups and I actually found the timer and other aspects (such as highlighting, changing fonts, screen layout, tapping the bubbles as opposed to filling them in with a pencil, etc.) of the digital version to be beneficial to me. It's definitely not for everyone but I preferred it to the paper exam.
    • Also read Hoju’s absolutely amazing response to one of your earlier threads here:   Now read it again. And then one more time.
    • Stop drinking coffee and instead of walking, go for a run. You have a ton of nervous energy you need to 1. Expend and 2. Stop feeding.  I am not going to internet diagnose you. But I want you to consider whether you are using this site for reassurance seeking and/or obsessive info checking. People who have Anxiety (capital A) fall into a number of recognizable patterns. One of those is obsessive information gathering, and one of those is reassurance seeking. These patterns address a sense of paralysis and mask the fact that you cannot move forward with decisions and have peace of mind. If you find you cannot function - and even begin to panic - unless some one is constantly right there with you telling you that you are making all the right choices and setting out exactly what happens next, and assuring you it will all be ok, you are probably getting in over your head and Anxiety may be the culprit. Anxiety is a real honest to goodness diagnosis along with Diabetes and Depression. If this is what you are dealing with, it’s  really time to stop feeding it and start treating it.  You can feel better. This can get better. But get help.   Edit: in case this comes across as presumptuous, I have Anxiety. I treat it. Before I did, Life was pretty fucking shitty. So this is all with the very best wishes for you going forward if this is your particular demon.
