I just received an email from Queens asking me if I want to be on their waitlist. Anybody else on their waitlist?

Edit for stats:

B2: 3.52

LSAT: 160

Good ECs and LOR.

Waitlisted as well. B2/L2: 3.73 157

The first year class is full now. Unfortunately there will be slim chances for the majority of us. Good luck everyone!

Also waitlisted! Pleased and flattered to be given the chance at admission. Does anyone know how they pull from the waitlist if it isn't ranked? And also when they start doing so?

LSAT 157

L2/B2 3.7

Strong ECs/LOR and PS tailored to Queen's. Best of luck to everyone!

There probably won't be much - if any - movement before the July 3 deadline where all Ontario offers go firm

Does anyone know what the chances are of us getting in off of the waitlist? And around how many waitlist spots they offer?

Can someone explain how the wait list works if it isn’t ranked? I don’t understand how they choose people to make offers to?

It's a waitlist pool. They wait for a spot to open up and then they look in the pool for the most competitive candidate. I think we all have slim chances on the waitlist. There's usually little movement :(

I e-mailed to ask and Aimee responded with this:

We do have a general indication of where students sit based on their grades and LSAT, it’s just that students are removed so often after accepting other schools it’s just logistically not possible to continuously update students on their current rank. We do not release the number of students on the waitlist. It is really up to the current class and the choices they make, the class is full, but if students change their minds, that’s when spots do open up. Some years it’s 5 students, some years it could be 20. Most of the movement will happen over the next few weeks and early into July as the provisional to firm date approaches.

It's so hard for us to estimate our chances when they won't tell us how many people are in the waitlist pool :/

I wonder if at this point the process is still holistic or if they are solely choosing candidates to fill the vacated spots based on GPA and LSAT scores

It sounds like it is not holistic and it's based on stats.

LSAT: 158 - GPA: 3.6

I was wait listed on the 13th but asked for my name to be removed as I have already accepted UofC.

Best of luck to everyone!

    • How do you handle losing cases? Do you get better over time at trying to keep it in perspective, and learning for next time? Is there any way to shut off the spiral of self-doubt?  It’s one thing to acknowledge that every court application is a calculated risk, and that you weigh the pros and cons with the client in advance, and that you’ve decided to take your chances. At some level, though, you believed that the outcome would come out in your favour (especially as the Plaintiff), otherwise you would have accepted a settlement. The rumination on “maybe I should have said this” or “maybe I should have told the client that” or “maybe I should have accepted a settlement” or “maybe if I were a better/smarter/more experienced/more confident lawyer this would have gone differently” or “maybe I just fuck up the lives of people who trust me” keeps me up for weeks and the impact of any losses outweighs 100x the impact of any wins. 
    • This is strictly anecdotal but I know of at least 1 2L in the past year who was a BC transfer. 
    • On test day, I was under so much pressure that my brain went on auto-pilot and my ability to methodically break down each question went out the window, even though I'd spent hundreds of hours studying similar questions at home. If your goal is to start law school in 2020, I think it'd be well worth it for you to experience that pressure before the do-or-die January exam. 
    • Waitlisted today for the English common law program, I'll probably take myself off the waitlist since I firmly accepted at another school a long time ago.  cGPA: 3.57 L2: 3.61 LSAT: 162
