Holistic Round

Recommended Posts

I haven't heard anything back yet. 

Anyone else heard from admissions?

I can't say for certain, but I think that holistic reviews already occurred. It seems like past cycles went: regular admits, holistic round, and then waitlist. I feel like it may be the case that waitlisted applicants were holistically reviewed and unsuccessful in their review.  I'm sure that they've ranked the waitlist already and will make offers (if any) based off of their rankings which, to my knowledge, are not released to us.

This cycle seems to be ahead of previous cycles--the 2018 waitlist thread was started at the end of May last year.

I received an offer on 4 Apr and, at the time, assumed it was as part of the second round of offers. However, because some people on the waitlist have comparable/better index than me (3.73, 155), I asked Laura whether I was admitted under the holistic category. I got the following response:

”We do not share the process in which you were admitted to the Law program.”

All this to say that I don’t know whether or not the holistic round has occurred. Although admissions seems to be playing their proverbial cards close to their chest this year, it couldn’t hurt to ask them...

Does anyone have any idea of when, and if, they'll start pulling from the waitlist? 

I haven't spoken to admissions since receiving the email about the waitlist.

    • 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.
