Called today. My waitlist spot moved from #64 (in early June) to #58. They also said that there are a couple of spots left in the class so it's not totally full yet. Good luck to everyone waiting :)) 

That's good to know!

Just one thing I am curious is..that..I also checked with the admissions via email today and found out that my position has moved only one spot... 

Could anyone please explain how this is possible?

Thank you in advance and good luck to everyone! :)

More people on the wait list between you and gammarays probably dropped out. Let's say you were ranked #20 then that meant one person ahead of you was accepted/dropped of the wait list so you moved one spot, while 6 people after you and before gammarays dropped off of the wait list so gammarays ended up moving 6 spots.

I keep thinking about emailing for my rank position but moving  6 spots would just be disappointing. Although, this time last cycle the class had filled up and I had been rejected. Until rejection letters go out there is still hope!

    • 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.
