Just called in, confirmed on the waitlist. They let me know that the waitlist is not ranked yet.

Just called and it looks like I'll be on the waitlist as well. I was told they couldn't confirm index scores so it will need to be self-calculated. Their waitlist in the regular category is strictly ranked by the numbers and nothing else. 

Index 91.13

Called in just now as well and since I applied discretionary all I was told was that decisions would be made late May. My index is 90.75 (self-calculated).

Waitlisted today. Really crossing my fingers that the stars align and I receive an offer.

Unsure of my true index because I'm not exactly sure how they dealt with some transfer credits, but without the transfer credits or drops, it's 91.38.

LSAT: 168

GPA: 3.7 (without drops).

Does anyone have any information about how many students they usually place on the waitlist, or what percentage of waitlisted applicants normally get in?

I don't know how you aren't in already. I got an offer with a 166 lsat and a 3.7 GPA (80%) it jumps up to 81.9 with the drops. I am rewriting the lsat though and if I hit 170+ I'm going to Columbia

@skbc4699

I'm also surprised you didn't get an offer b/c the drops typically raise your cGPA. Even with a small increase your index would hit 92+ 

Either way, if your stats are what you say you should be fairly high on the waitlist. You can check last year's waitlist thread to get an idea how many people got in. But take that with a grain of salt because every year is different and the possibility exists that no one gets in off the waitlist. Definitely keeping my fingers crossed that is not the case though.

I would suggest that there are issues with GPA calculations between institutions. Even small discrepancies can have significant impact- I calculated my GPA twice (first time using the wrong method) and the two resulting index scores were .17 apart which is significant given the very minor error I made the first time.

For anyone who is interested - went down a stress rabbit hole about the waitlist and found this in a 2014 waitlist thread - 

- - -

How many people put down a deposit and then withdrew before classes began:

2008  49

2009  46

2010  35

2011  32

2012  44

2013  48

- - -

They will send out more offers than there are spots however, so I know that those don't translate to waitlist acceptances. But still - the waitlist does normally move, there is hope for us guys!

    • Accepted Today  156 LSAT 3.71 GPA
    • Going to Ivey may limit your ability to get a 4.0, but assuming you can stomach the tuition, I'd say go.  OP something to be aware of - yes there is an 80% curve but the standard deviation is very tight. Top 25% at Ivey is 82% in HBA1 and 84% in HBA2. So assuming you are top 25% of the class both years (which is saying something) a 3.9 is unlikely never mind a 4.0. That said, it is realistic to walk out with a 3.7. That weighted with your BMOS courses would be competitive everywhere on a GPA basis.  Ivey's real benefit isn't helping you get into law school, but setting you up to succeed once you are already there (at least in my experience). I found HBA1 to be stressful and a lot more work than I was accustomed to - many people have similar sentiments about their 1L experience. But, since I was already put through the pressure cooker once, 1L just wasn't as jarring. You are accoustomed to being around other smart motivated people,  you have been trained and incentivized to participate in class, and Ivey's case method is similar to the socratic method used in law. All of this may help you find your footing early. The second and most tangible benefit is the work experience opportunities. It helps set you apart in the application process when you have brand name work experience. Especially compared to most students coming straight from undergrad.  Money aside, it's a no brainer to go. Is it worth the extra ~$50 grand, that's for you to decide.     
    • LOL, so does every other law school in Canada. What a cop out of an answer. 
    • I'm still waiting as well.. I kind of  take comfort in the fact that I'm not the only one clearly, but feel for all of us still waiting haha. Good luck to everyone still waiting!!
    • Can I still apply for bursaries or is it too late?
