Rejected today.

Applied under Access category; CGPA: 3.78, L2: 3.84, LSAT: 157 (an accommodated score), MA in history (A- average), and also currently doing combined Master programs of archival studies and museum studies (A- average). I am not disappointed at all as I have been accepted to Windsor Law and preferred Windsor to Lakehead.

One fun fact: Initially, I believed that I should be accepted to Lakehead because my personal statements discussed the Supreme Court of Canada's decision of destroying the TRC records. I was sure that my personal statements well engaged in Indigenous law. However, I came to realize that my personal statements did not pertain to Lakehead's required topic (Indigenous law); I merely talked about Indigenous issues rather than Indigenous law. Accordingly, I have been necessarily expecting a rejection from Lakehead.

Got rejected today but I already indicated on OLSAS that I didn't want to be considered after I provisionally accepted Windsor and am still waiting on UOttawa/Queens. PS was heavily geared toward Indigenous law but I geuss it didn't appease them. Oh well! Fuck 'em! 😄

Rejected yesterday through email. cGpa:3.53, B2 3.8, 166 LSAT. Wasn't interested in going but definitely did not expect to get rejected. Wrote about small town practice in my PS and I'm not from northern Ontario.

Looks like the application committee saw right through your submission if you weren’t interested in going.

No, I was potentially interested in going when I had written my application and I wrote very passionately about small town law as I'm from a small town. Not quite sure what "saw right through" my submission is supposed to mean either. It's not as though I was trying to be deceitful or was only applying for the hell of it.

    • I definitely think you should call since they've started pulling from the waitlist
    • For anyone not from the Victoria area,  what are you doing for housing?  Any areas you looking to avoid? 
    • Keep your fingers crossed. I had my interview last week and received my acceptance this morning. They seem to be pulling from the waitlist so let's hope you hear something soon. 
    • I just want to point out that applying access DOES NOT disadvantage you. If you apply access you are also automatically considered under general if your stats meet the requirements. So for the people saying you would be better off applying general, that is simply not true. You would be worse off as you would only be considered in general as opposed to both. 
    • I am so sorry. That sounds like such an incredibly frustrating position to be in and I just want you to know I feel for you and will be keeping my fingers crossed. Unfortunately, I don't really have any revolutionary advice other than try contacting your school's CDO? Even though they focus on 1L/2L/articling recruit, they have great connections with the recruiters at various firms. It can never hurt to let them know that you're looking for an opportunity.
