Anyone in the Access category that still hasn't heard back?

Recommended Posts

I applied Access and haven't heard anything yet, still Under Evaluation. I've been waitlisted at Osgoode so I'm hoping that means my application is good enough to be at least waitlisted at Ottawa as well at the end of the month, since they seem to have similar class sizes and a holistic look at applications.

Did they mention if they will have released everyone's waitlist ranking/number before the July 3rd firm accept date?

I called, and according to them they will have the waitlist out by early June. I took it to mean that they will have the waitlist rankings out by early June as well. I specifically asked if we will know our waitlist rankings before the July 3rd firm accept date and she said we will.

I really don't want to go to Windsor.

Hope you’re right. Information seems to be ever changing. 

Why not just decline Windsor then and open the spot up for someone else if you’re that against it🤷🏻‍♀️ Apply next year if the worst happens.

I`m going to wait until I get my waitlist number from UOttawa.

I actually really like Windsor as a school, they seem to have a strong community feel and a strong focus in public interest law. I just have a tremendous amount of anxiety about moving from Ottawa to Windsor. Makes so much more sense to just stay here. I`m really disappointed it`s taken Ottawa this long to get back to me. I outlined all the reasons, including my health reasons, in my application and why I would prefer to stay in Ottawa. Feels like they`ve ignored it. Makes me extremely disgruntled.

Going through a bunch of doubts as to going to law school now. Do I really want it that much if I have these reservations about moving? Not a good feeling.

    • Hi,   I was just wondering if my reference would need to write one general reference letter that is applicable to every school or a targeted reference letter to each school. On the OUAC website it says that only one version is allowed so I am pretty confused.    Thanks in advance for the help!  
    • 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.
