Guess I’ll start this off! 

Called the office today - I’ve been Waitlisted with a confirmed index score of 890. Waitlist invites to be sent out in May. 

Cheers everyone! 🍻

Thanks for your post @justasmalltowngirl!

I decided to call the office as well and heard that I was also waitlisted with a confirmed index score of 890 (GPA: 3.96 with drops/4.33 ; LSAT: 160). The admissions officer, Dailene, informed me that waitlist invites would be sent out in May at which point we have the option to accept, thereby granting us the ability to see our position on the waitlist. 

Good luck all!

Waitlisted as well - index 907.5 confirmed by Dailene.

Guess the auto admit is not 905.

Waitlisted as well ... 876.25 index. Really surprised because they calculated my GPA as lower than my home school does WITH drops and multiple high exchange marks. Chances looking slim haha.

Based on what I read from previous years' threads, the index obviously factors into it but is not the only thing considered. A lot of people had very similar indexes near the top of the waitlist last year.

Although being at the top of the waitlist is not a guarantee:

While in 2017 and 2018 numerous people received offers from the waitlist, in 2016 no one did. Apparently in 2016 UVic was "oversubscribed" -- I'm guessing this means that they sent out 30 offers expecting 20 people to accept but all 30 did.

Good luck all.

Does anyone know if the wait-list is ranked by index score or some other mysterious method?

Each committee member looks at peoples profiles (stats, personal statement) individually and make their own rankings, then they get together and determine the final waitlist ranking as a whole.

    • How do you handle losing cases? Do you get better over time at trying to keep it in perspective, and learning for next time? Is there any way to shut off the spiral of self-doubt?  It’s one thing to acknowledge that every court application is a calculated risk, and that you weigh the pros and cons with the client in advance, and that you’ve decided to take your chances. At some level, though, you believed that the outcome would come out in your favour (especially as the Plaintiff), otherwise you would have accepted a settlement. The rumination on “maybe I should have said this” or “maybe I should have told the client that” or “maybe I should have accepted a settlement” or “maybe if I were a better/smarter/more experienced/more confident lawyer this would have gone differently” or “maybe I just fuck up the lives of people who trust me” keeps me up for weeks and the impact of any losses outweighs 100x the impact of any wins. 
    • This is strictly anecdotal but I know of at least 1 2L in the past year who was a BC transfer. 
    • On test day, I was under so much pressure that my brain went on auto-pilot and my ability to methodically break down each question went out the window, even though I'd spent hundreds of hours studying similar questions at home. If your goal is to start law school in 2020, I think it'd be well worth it for you to experience that pressure before the do-or-die January exam. 
    • Waitlisted today for the English common law program, I'll probably take myself off the waitlist since I firmly accepted at another school a long time ago.  cGPA: 3.57 L2: 3.61 LSAT: 162
