No movement at all? 

I personally know one person that had paid their deposit for TRU but has decided to go to another school now. I am not sure if they have contacted Leanne to let her know or how long the whole process will take... but that’s one person on the waitlist that will get in!

Still stresses me out! Last year around this time like 20 people had received offers off the waitlist.

Me too! I think at this point it might be time to assume the worst and either prepare for the next cycle or go abroad if law school is still an option.

Yeah, it is so hard waiting! 

I think we may see some movement soon, it seems as if UVIC is starting to accept people of the waitlist. Fingers crossed and good luck to everyone :)

Congratulations!

If you don’t mind sharing- When did you apply and when did you receive your waitlist email?

Applied almost the last day of the application window, and received the waitlist email April 17th.

I was just rejected off the waitlist today. Was waitlisted on April 17th

L2: 3.1

LSAT: 160

I am surprised as I didn't expect there to be rejections from the waitlist this early. Really disappointed... :(

I had no idea they would be doing that so early on... was this through email or phone? Really sorry! Best of luck with any other on-going applications you may have!

I was also just rejected off of the waitlist via email. 

GPA 3.74/4.33 (not sure how they calculated L2)

LSAT: 155

Applied special consideration, I don't have 90 credits. 

Good luck to everyone that made the shortlist! I hope there's some movement for you guys.

After being told I was in a great spot on the waitlist to being rejected. Solid. It's really hard not to be extremely frustrated. CGPA 3.7, MA 4.0, LSAT 155. Special Circumstances.

Sounds like a mistake.

Did you get into anywhere?

No I haven't, this has to be the shittiest experience I have ever had and I really don't mean to bitch but I literally had both my parents die in my undergrad and I kept a 3.7 CGPA, I did all the extracurricular, got academically recognized, completed a masters and have a 155 LSAT. I frankly don't know what the hell else I can do.

I am so sorry to hear that.

You have a higher L2, right?

You should get into some schools with your stats.

Reapply if you didn't get in this cycle.

Good luck!

I really can't tell if you're being genuine or just trying to rub it in. Thanks.

    • As stated above, the common law is in a constant state of evolution and so it's not uncommon for a casebook to become antiquated within a few years, if not less.
    • in short: you need a good GPA, a good LSAT, to go to a good school, not mind ridiculous amounts of debt, and be willing to be at the mercy of possible (but imo unlikely) changes to immigration law entirely disrupting your career.
    • Oh no I completely agree with you and did keep my grades up for the reasons you’ve cited. There is no guarantee of anything past articles and employers will ask for a transcript in the earlier years of practice. I don’t think people should stop caring once they land a 2L summer, and I honestly don’t think people do. Like sure, law students love to brag about how little they’re studying or how little they now care. But make no mistake, they still care lol
    • I would say it depends on the practice area and the city. Criminal law is probably most conducive for a sole proprietorship structure, but it would be very difficult to start in the current Toronto market without any real experience to stand on and clients with certificates that they can take to hundreds of lawyers. Personal injury is also difficult to start in any city because most cases are now taken on contingency fee, so you would need to be able to maintain your practice for several months without any income coming in.  The above examples are unfortunate because they engage access to justice issues. That being said, there are other areas where you could pick-up work. Everyone needs a will, and there are numerous self-represented litigants in family courts. Social assistance, landlord and tenant, and employment law. You should ask yourself whether you're the type of person that should start a law firm. While it's great to have your name on the door and own it, you have to take care of more than just the legal work. Practising in association with other lawyers or in a multi-discipline practice is a good way to reduce your expenses, workload, unfamiliarity, and overall risk of failure.
