For fuck's sake. Waiting list.

3.25, 3.73, 164, MA, Access. Guess it's time to go back and increase my cGPA. I suppose hardly anyone gets accepted off the waitlist?

Man, this is really heartbreaking. I've seen you post in these forums for so long - was really rooting for you.

To be fair, it's not over yet but certainly not an encouraging sign.

Does it say "waitlisted" instead of "applied" where it says:
"Professional...Faculty of Law...W 2019... Applied"

Yes, and you can either accept or decline the waitlist offer.

Given that these are all after the "round of offers" issued on Thursday I think it's likely safe to say that Western has filled its class or at least is mostly filled?

I actually called them! They said that the class isn't filled yet, but will be by May 31. The reason people are getting waitlisted/rejected is because they want everyone to have an answer by the end of May, or even sooner! 

He specifically said that no news isn't bad news, it could be good news!

That's reassuring! I felt impending doom when I saw this list. It really is hard to say I guess.

Jeez, high L2s and good LSATs. Didn't know Western placed this high of a weight on cGPA, assuming that was the reason why. Hopefully you get in off the wait list.

Yeah I think they do place a considerable amount of weight on cGPA. It does say on the website that they prefer a high cGPA to a high L2, by and large.

Seems to me that’s Queens and Dal are better bets for L2 applicants than Western.

If I could ask every single person to decline their offer on the waitlist for me, that would be great! 😅

    • yeppers. got mine last night and got hit by a car while driving my bike 5 minutes later, what a day! (i'm fine, no broken bone) i'm wondering why they closed it so early too, but oh well. keep us posted if you end up calling!
    • After graduating, i decided to study for the LSAT while volunteering. My first score was pretty bad (due to nerves i think), but the second time around (June 15th) i was able to score a 154. I know that a 154 is still lower than the current minimum for law schools in Canada.. Now, while doing PTs, i usually score around a 157-160. I have a CGPA of 3.5, and my B2 would roughly be around a 3.6. Again, just shy of the minimum. I know that law schools look at your application holistically. Just to give you an idea of my work/volunteering experience, I interned for the federal government in Ottawa as a policy analyst for around 2 years, and will be working for the government again in the next month or so. I volunteered at a Non-profit as a policy analyst and advocacy director, as well as other noteworthy volunteer positions such as working with ex-convicts, and helping immigrant refugees integrate into Canadian society. Submission of applications for law school begin in September and i don't want to wait any longer. I'm unsure whether i should take the LSAT for the third time in August and risk getting a lower score, or if i should apply and try my luck. I feel like some of you folks would have a better idea as to whether I have a shot getting in with these scores if i have a strong application (personal statement, resume, ECs, etc.). I think it's the risk of getting a lower score that scares me, because if i do, that would look pretty bad on my application and i think it would ruin my chances of ever getting in. Thanks so much!!  
    • I dont think any schools will look at the two tests differently. I think it is important to recognize that waiting for a regular test to be administered (if that is what you prefer) will probably not happen for a few months, so if you're looking to apply this cycle, I wouldn't wait until the end of the year in hopes of avoiding the flex. You don't want to feel like you're studying or taking the test too last minute... especially if you have to take the test again! 
    • I have bought it when 7sage gave a discount on it, but there are no contents even relevant to Canadian law. So, don't buy it.
    • yes i did. i don't get it either to be honest. I wanted to call them but they're closed today.. very frustrating
