Recommended Posts

Me too.  L2: 3.86 (not yet confirmed) and 152 January LSAT

Lets all hope one of the other Western Canada schools begins to move and then perhaps we will.

Also wait listed today! 3.82 (self calculated), 154 LSAT. Mature applicant, have master's degree.

I read that the wait list is basically a no, but it still feels better than being outright rejected. Good luck, everyone!

Just got the email

L2 : 3.94

LSAT : 157

I'm a Second Year Applicant

 

This is probably the biggest shocker. Did you get confirmation that they'd be assessing you as a second-year applicant?

It says on their website that 2nd year applicants must have an Lsat above 90th percentile so if they were assessed as a 2nd year applicant it’s not really a shocker

My email doesn't doesn't say anything about being a Second-Year student. 

Did anyone get an email back confirming they have a spot on the waitlist? Since we were asked in the email to confirm that.

I confirmed, but they haven't replied back yet.

On a related note , when you try to email back about the waitlist to [email protected] , does "-lawadmit" show up in instead ? I'm wondering if that's right and if the email will actually go through. 

That's how it always showed up for me.

If you look at past topics in this forum, it appears some do accepted off the waitlist. However, it seems to vary a lot each year. I think one year looked like they went through 30 people (either they were offered a spot or were asked to be taken off). Some waitlists go through only 3 or 4 people. Some waitlists can be quite long too. I have to say I'm surprised by how early the waitlist went out this year. I had heard it goes out after the holistic.. but I think we are ranked holistically so idk..

    • I just got into Calgary and I took it three times 1 - 153 2 - 159 3 - 160    
    • So I believe there are many bad law schools in US because of bad employment prospects for a majority of students enrolled in comparison to the debt they are going to incur. 
    • IMO I would say overall Calgary is the better school, I'm from Ontario and I decined Ottawa for Calgary so granted I am biased. However, I believe UoC to have a more innovative curriculum, better facilites, better job market and their articling employment rate is amazing! Both cities get very cold in the Winters, so there's that. However, if you are dead-set on practicing in Ontario then yeah Ottawa would seem a more viable option. That being said it is not impossible to transition between provinces, especially if you have good grades and/or a bit of nepotism (or 'Networking'). Take that as you will, but Calgary FTW
    • from what I understand, the States have a tiered system that consists of low tier schools who admit people who have low LSAT and GPA's. Some of these schools do not have good bar pass rates or employment prospects. I can't comment on the actual curriculum. In Canada, all schools have relatively high admissions standards, so the people being admitted generally have the ability to complete the rigour of law school and mostly pass the bar. I guess essentially the deviations in school standards are much lower in Canada, thus providing consistency.
