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!

    • 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.
    • 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.
