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.

    • Going to help Ryn out when I can. I have the same experiences as them.  The review teams do not have the previous files, but we can request the information from admin if we needed it.  Practically speaking though, the scenario you're worrying about will not happen. It's quite rare for us to look at your previous application.  That being said I've always been of the opinion that you should tell the committee about your experiences. No reason to remove them IMHO 
    • There are a lot of recent topics on this website that you can review that discuss ways a new call can obtain employment. I was called in June 2019 and got my current job off of contacting a partner from a firm that was hiring in one practice area and providing him with an application package. I then did two interview with them, as per normal. Other people I know tended to do the same thing, rather than relying on Indeed, etc., just because it is so competitive and unless you are a superstar, it can be hard to distinguish yourself. 
    • If OP went to TRU in 1L then UBC in 2L, I'd assume they just didn't have strong cover letters/resumes. I'm in 3L at TRU and received 9 Vancouver OCIs with the following grades: A-, B+, B+, B, B, B, B. I had heard rumours that transferring to UBC from TRU/UVic looks bad to employers unless you had a compelling reason to transfer (family issues, you got married, etc.). I have no idea how true that is, so yeah.
    • Its mostly hyperbole for the pace of it part, I don't really see myself holding a tin can and a sign that reads "Will review contracts for Food".  There is nothing wrong of course with teaching fundamental skills. Just borrowing a page from say, physics. They teach fundamental theories and its very important to. But its laterally supplanted with learning how to use sophisticated machinery, and now supplanted with learning how to design and program simulation models. We spend like, an hour a week learning to use Westlaw and Quicklaw which are the tools of yesterday. We learn nothing about how these tools are going to operate. But yes, case summaries have not changed. It literally went unchanged for over a decade. Not for criminal law obviously, but the summaries I looked at were virtually identical to mine in teaching ratios and so-on with the same cases used. My point wasn't that it isn't useful; but the way of teaching it has not adapted yet and this is IMO problematic.  Sorry I seem very bitter and so-on, but I am just kind of frustrated with how archaic some of the curriculum for law schools generally seems to be entering my second year. 
    • Thanks for taking the time to answer my previous question. I may be applying this cycle and have a question with regards to the Sketch part of the application. When I previously applied to Law School I added every little volunteer/extracurricular from the time I entered University. For simplicity purposes, I wanted to retain only the last 3-4 years of relevant experience. Would this be a problem for an individual that had more sketch items in a previous application 1-2 years ago? For example some activities are not included at all whereas they were on a previous application?  And just for the sake of knowing I guess, would you have access to and look back at a previous application if you were assessing a candidate?
