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! 😅

    • I took it 3 times back to back and now i'm finishing up 1L at UVic. As long as you keep improving on your scores, you should be fine June 2017 - 149 Sept 2017- 153 December 2017 - 163  
    • 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.    *Edit* Just realized someone else recommended Is Eating People Wrong, but that just shows how good it is!
    • 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.
