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.

    • January LSAT as well?
    • Nope, I wrote the January LSAT. 
    • I had identical stats and was admitted long long time ago (2013). 
    • How long ago were you referred to adcom?
    • I have 2 little kids in daycare (aged 1 and 3) and it works, but just barely. My husband works long hours in a different industry and we stagger hours so that the kids aren't spending long days in care -- I drop off around 9 before heading into the office and he picks up around 4:30. I would suggest taking your kid's personality into account when deciding between a daycare and a nanny -- my baby would likely be fine with longer days, but my elder child would find it difficult. My elder would probably be happiest with a nanny, but also probably benefits the most from the daycare setting (socialization, having to deal with multiple teachers, structure).  Like all things kid-related, it totally depends on the kid.  The real problem with daycare is that the kid can't go there if they're ill. And little kids in a daycare setting get sick all the time. Seriously, all the time. I've received 3 calls to pick up my sick child from daycare in the month of February alone, and the kid has been too sick to return for several days each time. I'm a litigator, and appear in court at least a few days each week -- it's kind of a disaster. I am in a very family-friendly office, on an 80% schedule, and have family support and it's still a disaster. My spouse is generally unable to respond to the daycare call to pick up the kids, so it tends to fall to me or the grandparents, who pitch in more than is reasonable to expect.
