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!

Not to worried, got an acceptance at UofA, looks like I'm moving to Deadmonton.

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

Stoked that you got in! Yeah, would if I could but I am also pretty interested in living in a new city for a while.

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!!

    • Also: don't think of it as a gap year. Think of it as a year of real life. 
    • Get a job, make some good money, get some invaluable experience and perspective, and go on a nice vacation (if/when travel restarts).
    • Hi everyone, I am at the bottom half of the waitlist and I don't think I'll get in this year. Do you have any suggestions for spending a gap year? To those who have applied for more than one cycle, I would be very grateful if you could share your experiences. Many thanks!
    • I've been told that we won't hear anything until very end of June/early July. I asked them whether rolling admissions occurred and they said no. 
    • I am considering a career change from tech to law, and have a background in software development & technology sales. My interest in pursuing law would fall squarely within the realm of privacy, data governance, and emerging technology (specifically explainable AI). In looking around I see there are a few schools that have named institutes or a general focus on law and tech (Dal, UofO, York, UofT, Ryerson), but I am interested in how much of those cirricula relate to IP/patent law vs. privacy and data governance. I assume that IP law and data governance might have significant overlap or will in the near future. I am not really interested in patent law or software licenses. Can anyone who is familiar with these streams comment on your experience and what the focus tends to be at your institution? Do I have an unrealistic expectation of what law school is by thinking I can focus on this narrow intersection of law and tech? I am in the process of reaching out to admissions but I would also like to hear first-hand experiences. Thanks for your time!
