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!! 

These are pretty solid stats! I’m surprised you’re not in

Thanks! I firmly believe that my PS is what got me my other offers... I applied to UofC at the very last minute and my PS was rushed. I imagine somebody with similar stats and a better PS would get in!

I've been accepted somewhere else so I will ask to be taken off the waitlist. 

When was your file complete out of curiosity?

I know this question might have appeared before but cant help to ask, anyone has any idea that what percentage of people on waitlist will be offered a spot and what percentage will be rejected?  Does this have amything to do with the "yield rate?" 

I have heard some schools' waitlist moves pretty fast quite a few waitlisters get in eventually and for some other schools waitlist is almost a rejection.

Got the email about an hour ago. Completely unexpected

GPA 3.3/4.0

LSAT 160

How does this work, is the university just going to randomly select off the waitlist or is there an order?

Waitlisted on March 13th.

Not surprised by the waitlist considering the average stats for intake from last year. Fingers crossed.

I have the same question but it seems hard to get an answer.

Yes, I did get into UofA a while back. However, I'd prefer UofC.

    • Couldn't find an email, but apparently I'll be joining you fine people in the Fall. Best 2: 4.0/4.3 LSAT: 161 Strong Sask. connection.
    • Not my point.  I just think if you're one to carry water for some miscellaneous, anonymous corporate/commercial firm like you did, then you pretty clearly are not "not one to defend unpaid labour." 
    • Hey everyone, First of all I want to congratulate everyone who received their May LSAT scores today! Reading everyone’s posts made me excited to start my journey towards taking my first LSAT! I’ve been reading this thread religiously lately to search for an answer to my question, however my situation is unique and thought I’d make a post to see if anybody has experienced a similar scenario in the past.  I am 21 years old and a recent community college graduate. I’ve taken a couple gap years; one after high school, and now this one as I have been working since I graduated college last summer. My plan has always been to go to law school, and I am starting to work on obtaining my undergraduate degree in the upcoming fall. Thanks to my college diploma, I have been granted transfer credits from the university which I’ll be attending and will be able to graduate in 3 years instead of the traditional 4, following a normal 5 courses per term work load.  This raised some questions in my mind as to when the best time would be to take the LSAT, since I want to give myself a year to study for it before taking it. I am currently planning on taking the test in June the year before I plan to start law school, to allow myself some room for retakes if needed. If I start studying for the LSAT next summer (2021) and take it the following year (2022) I’ll only have 2 years worth of university grades for law schools to use to determine my CGPA, where as if I take the LSAT after I graduate undergrad I’ll have to take another gap year until I potentially start law school the following fall, which I would like to avoid if possible. I know some law schools will send out conditional acceptances based on your final year of grades if they only have a couple of years worth of university grades to look at, so I was wondering if anyone else has been in the same boat and what everyone’s thoughts and experiences are. I guess it boils down to when you think the best time would be for myself to take the LSAT and not put my application at a disadvantage.  Sorry for the long post!
    • Hello everyone! The university's plans to put classes online in the fall (and maybe beyond) as well as the ongoing COVID-19 situation means that I'll likely be staying home in Ontario for the first semester (and maybe the whole first year.)  Which leads to the question from the title up top. Is the UofA student health benefits plan usable in Ontario? Thanks in advance!
