2019 Waitlisted Students

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey guys! just want to keep tabs on those of us waitlisted for the University of Toronto. Feel free to post your status and any updates on being accepted/questions here! :)

I was waitlisted today-

OLSAS GPA: 3.38 ; B3: 3.5 ; LSAT: 167 ; Out of Province Applicant, extensive extracurriculars & wrote all of the optional essays!

I emailed them back and they said their class is usually full by early April and that they only open the waitlist when an admitted student changes their mind (meaning that they expect the class to be full by sending out more admissions offers than actual spots and our only real chance is if someone completely changes their mind AFTER having accepted the offer... which is highly unlikely?). They said and I quote: "In the past 5 years the latest we’ve gone to the wait list was a week before the start of classes in August."

I was looking for details on this, in past years a lot more people posted in the waitlist threads , and the one I looked at, not a single person posted saying they were accepted :P.  I asked someone at the school and they said there usually wansnt much movement, but there definitely have been acceptances given out each year, as late as August.  

It seems like a lot less ppl have posted in this waitlist thread than last years tho so that's a good sign!  I'd say odds are not good honestly but there's still some hope.

    • I added up U of T's tuition fees in each year ($38,233.45 for 1L, $38,183.45 for each of 2 and 3L), and then subtracted the sum of UBC's tuition ($12,639.36 for 1L and $11,849.40 for each of 2 and 3L).  In fairness, I did miss UBC's student fees, which are "approximately $1,100 per year for J.D. students", so I guess that drops the price difference to $74,962.19.
    • That is what mine has been for months as well. 
    • Here is some more information that I just learned from calling a few schools, for anyone interested in this topic and reading this thread.  When determining cGPA, all ontario schools go by what OLSAS provides, and OLSAS counts all courses taken at an undergraduate level regardless of whether they are counting towards a degree or not. How schools look at L2 is internal and possibly different for each school.  Schools outside of Ontario because they dont go through OLSAS probably also have their own way of looking at cGPA and L2.
    • How did you get to 78,262? I assumed the UofT tuition to be $33,300 and UBC tuition to be $12000. On-campus UBC residence seems to be slightly more expensive compared to grad house at UofT
    • I read that all Canadian law school provide good legal education. What constitutes a good legal education? Ability to find employment, good professors, better network, good clinical opportunities? What would be considered a 'bad legal education'?
