Waitlist 2019

Recommended Posts

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! 😅

    • Went to the liquor store today and not only was I asked for my ID, but the clerk had me pull down my mask to compare my face to it. Guy even took a serious look at my face and the ID again with it down, so I guess that didn't make it immediately apparent. It reminded me of this thread and I guess I even understated things here. I would have figured the permanent bags under my eyes (visible while I'm wearing my face mask) alone would have made it clear I wasn't a teenager at this point.
    • I would think Vancouver? I'm also in your year at UBC (we may have met?) so take my post with that in mind. I know there are some firms in Vancouver that specifically have Asia Pacific practices and speaking Mandarin/familiarity with the culture would likely be an asset.
    • Didn't do a diagnostic, but started out in the mid 150's. First time taking the exam, I scored a 164, second time 169. The only change I made between the tests was to implement a skipping strategy and work on timing.
    • Would they? As a student in the recruit, how would you really know which firms shortchanged their associates and which ones didn't without the word of mouth coming from the network that established lawyers already have? I feel like something like this wouldn't be openly discussed by lawyers to law students.
    • I wouldn't get them. In addition to casebooks, the profs at my school often suggest optional texts. You don't need to read all of them, but I found they were helpful if you got stuck in a particular concept or don't really understand why some cases are grouped together. I also wouldn't bother purchasing the optional texts. They were readily available in the reserve section of the library. Not sure how this would work if you're taking classes entirely online. I would try to find out in the first couple of weeks of school.
