I thought the same, I even called them to confirm

That is indeed a little surprising. On the other hand, perhaps it's to your advantage to know where you stand, if you have other applications on the go? 

All the best. With a B2 slightly above average and LSAT just a few points below, crossing my fingers that you've got a good shot to get in off that waitlist!

Can't believe you are not accepted with this stats

Really surprised that the 169 wasn't enough to outweigh the 3.51! I would be pretty confident of getting off the waitlist!

Wish I could trade acceptances with you! (For family reasons only; otherwise I am excited to be accepted to U of C!)

Yeah I was kind of blown away, considering the same stats got me an acceptance at U of A, which seems to be more difficult to get into. Maybe I bombed my Personal Statement to U of C :P

Did anyone get an email about an online info session for their 1L foundations course? just find it weird that they would send me something like that when I'm on the waitlist...

I can see how that would seem a bit weird, but I guess take it as a positive: they see the waitlisters as still being prospective attendees, so they wouldn't want you to miss out on the opportunity to get the same info sessions as your potential future classmates. :)

I got it! Thought the same but I assume it's too much effort/not useful to only send it out to a small number of people

Waitlisted.

Lsat: 159

Gpa: 4.12/4.33 (L2 4.28/4.33)

Had really strong reference letters. I thought I had strong ec's but maybe not. Really hoping to make it in, surprised I was waitlisted.

Got waitlisted today. By reading these forums alone, I completely expected to end up here.
I am seriously considering some other offers, and will be requesting to be removed as soon as I pay a deposit. 

LSAT 164 (1 write) 

cGPA/L2: 3.5 (they are basically the same) 

Good Luck Everyone!!

    • Yea my bad majority was the wrong term to use. However, if the rest of the 1L class responded I do think it is likely that the majority consensus would still be in favour of moving to Kingston. 
    • Almost everyone in the group was marked as having "seen" the post (~220 people) but only 85 responded, so in line with what @ChiasticWalrus said, there are definitely many students not reflected in the poll. Maybe the majority of people are still undecided, and/or people were reluctant to respond that they were staying home because so few others did so? I know I'm still not fully sure what I'm going to do yet given the unpredictable nature of the virus
    • Thanks for chiming in, @Twenty. It's reassuring to hear that someone else had the exact same train of thought that I did. I also see the option to stay home as a unique opportunity instead of as an outright negative. I appreciate the insight regarding studying as well. I'm glad to hear that a good deal of success boils down to independent study and that most other "techniques for success" are still possible through online means. I've always sort of favoured that method myself, so I'm definetely feeling much better about staying home. All the best to you in the upcoming year.
    • This is actually really interesting. Do you know if the numbers are similar for 2Ls/3Ls? My blind guess is that a larger proportion of upper years are willing to remain at home (though I would not be surprised if the majority still prefer in-person). The reasoning is that 0Ls/1Ls are super keen to start law school and be on campus, while seniors are less so.  @ChiasticWalrus I'm not a Queen's student (I'm an incoming 2L at another ON school), but a reason why I opted to take online classes was because if there is a second wave, everything will move online anyways. I've experienced both in-person and remote law school classes, did the cost-benefit analysis, and felt more comfortable staying with my parents. In some regards, I saw the option of taking classes online and staying at home as an opportunity I should not pass up (for both health and financial reasons).   In terms of being (academically) disadvantaged, studying in law school is such an independent process (i.e. learning how to read, analyze, and apply case law is something you learn by yourself) that as long as you keep up with (most of) your readings, obtain/create good outlines, read Getting to Maybe before finals, give yourself enough time to do practice questions and analyze sample answers (I found it really helpful to do practice finals with classmates and discuss our answers - these can be done online), I don't think you will be at a disadvantage. In-person lectures are great because you can have interesting class discussions, but based on my first semester of law school, there was no correlation between how engaging a class was and the grade I got for that class. 
    • This does help, thank you! I can't afford 7sage right now, but I'll keep it in mind for the future. I'll also take a look at Manhattan. Much appreciated.
