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.

    • Yes. There is a 'tryout' process, or at least there was (new) last year, but it is very easy. We had to read a journal article, answer some questions about it, and perform some citations work pursuant to the McGill Guide (legal citation guide) within a couple of days. It actually takes longer than you might think, but not long. Around 45 people made it on to law review, they wouldn't tell us how many 'tried out'. 
    • So you’re saying you didn’t work your ass off to get into university, maintain a high GPA, pass the LSAT, get into law school, maintain good grades in law school, kill articling interviews, work yourself to the grindstone during articling, pass the bar, and now you’re where you are? this whole “white privilege” discussion is total bullshit and nonsense. I don’t understand the guilt people have for being successful. And you shouldn’t be guilty for your parents having worked that hard to provide a good life for you as I’m sure you will for your kids. 
    • Maybe in some positions, but definitely not in others, including mine.  Unless I have court, I schedule whatever I want and do whatever I please. As long as the hours are there, no one cares. 
    • Work. I love having a schedule that I cannot miss for any reason and getting paid to adhere to it and work on practical, real-life matters. I love having that sense of direction too, as well as just knowing that no matter how small the task I'm working on is, it is still meaningful. I learn a lot more too and retain it far better. I want to wake up in the morning and get started on my day, whereas when I'm in school I constantly yearn for the weekend. I feel a lot more anxiety in school... I get a bit of anxiety at work too, but I think the stability and meaningfulness make it a lot easier to deal with. Getting paid and not having to worry about how I am going to pay the bills is also an added bonus, but I would probably prefer school if it was structurally more similar to a work environment and things were taught in a more hands-on, practical matter.
    • We did actually get an email from the Parkdale intensive back in March, i.e. after the clinic recruit, informing students that they still had unfilled spots so I actually got the sense that it wasn't a very popular clinic, for whatever reason.
