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..

    • Also a 0L and looking to do the same thing so these are the two (more relevant to the law books) that I have found. The first is a really interesting one called "Is Eating People Wrong?" Its written by Allan Hutchinson (also a current or former Osgoode Prof) and it goes over some really notable legal cases from across the world that helped shape Common Law (Like Brown v Board of Ed. etc.) . Most of the cases are super weird (like the first one discussed, which influenced the title) and theres a bit of legal analysis thats included on them but not in a way that I'd say would impact you negatively like pre-reading textbooks would.  One I just ordered is "Women in Criminal Justice: True Cases By and About Canadian Women and the Law" which again would include interesting info, and likely some legal jargon to help familiarize yourself with the language, but I'm assuming also would not negatively impact your studies. 
    • I'm still waiting, been "under evaluation" since December. I have a 3.25, 3.73, 164 LSAT and an MA. This is my second cycle applying to Ottawa in the Access category. I was waitlisted last year with a much lower LSAT score. Anyone else still waiting in Access? I hope to be at least waitlisted with a more favourable number this year. I have already provisionally accepted UNB so it's not the end of the world if I don't get in, but I'd like to go to UOttawa or Queens over UNB if I had the option. I called an admissions officer last week and they said they had a lot of Access applications this year, and they didn't have the majority of files finalized until after January, so there may be a bit of a delay.
