Which month do most acceptances get put out?

Recommended Posts

Is it this month or have most of the acceptances gone out already?

I have still have yet to hear back from any of the 4 schools I've applied to (Ottawa, Western, Queens, Osgoode).

Granted my stats are not the best (CGPA 3.52/B2 3.85/157).

I think I'm done waiting. I need to decide whether I will prepare for next cycle or decide on something to do with my life other than law.

If you look at last threads there are typically A LOT of acceptances that go out in April. Especially with the entire pandemic going on, i’m sure there will be even more acceptance and later dates including April, May and June.

I'm actually really surprised I haven't heard from more schools yet. I was so sure I would have heard back from more than half of them by now... Don't know if I should be optimistic or disappointed... 

LSAT: 157 best (148, 152) / GPA: L2 3.63

Uvic: Apps forwarded to admin

TRU: No update 

Ualberta: Decision pending 

U of C : Waitlisted feb 17th 

Usask: No update

Manitoba: Waitlisited at 160 

UNB: No update

Our stats are nearly identical. From past acceptance threads I knew not to expect anything from Queen's or Western until at least April... if ever. I know we aren't a certain acceptance but some people are accepted to these two schools every year with similar and/or worse stats than ours. Good luck!

Yeah I've skimmed through some and I've seen stats similar to mine get in already in prior years. 

That being said, really nothing I can do atm. 

Maybe, I'll stop checking for a couple weeks again because I've literally heard nothing from anyone. 

Not even a rejection, which is a good/bad thing in itself.

Your stats are perfect for Ottawa :) I have really similar stats and I got in! My assumption is they're going to see how many students accepted and based off that, they will send the rest out! It also depends when ur application was read/when it went to queue I'm guessing as well! I'm also waiting on Western, Queens and Osgoode! I saw that a lot of people were getting rejections from Western so assuming it's a good sign if we haven't received those yet!

Thanks for the optimism! I'm just generally not a patient person so I guess this isn't a bad teaching lesson for me.

On another note...what a B-E-A-Utiful day to wait... thought it was Canada Day long weekend for a minute there sitting in the front yard listening to the neighbour bumping tunes.

Makes me grateful my biggest issue in the midst of all this Coronamess is in the hands of a committee and completely out of my until-today-sun-deprived-Mitts!

A big thank you to all front-line health care workers.

 

Happy Weds. Everyone!

Yeah I'm literally exactly the same, I've been having really bad anxiety for these past few day  :( It's hard to sleep because I'm thinking about all the sacrifices I'd be making by going far (I have a really sick family member)....so I've been really waiting on those responses as well. However, I am firm believer in that everything happens for a reason and it's meant to be so if it's not written, guess it wasn't for me :) don't worry, I'm sure you'll be okay and whatever is meant to happen will eventually fall into place

Yeah, thank you for saying this. I have been having extreme anxiety as well. I can’t sleep at night and just have lost all my hope.. but I need to manifest the positive.

might i suggest a distraction?

you'll be entertained and be somewhat more ready for any bird law courses they might throw at us in 1L

-

seriously though: take care of yourselves, not to presume too much but if you don't already have a decent strategy in place to tackle mounting anxiety/stress i highly suggest you work on developing one, you don't wanna have it overwhelm you during the course of a demanding academic program itself (been there, done that, not fun)

good luck, crossing my fingers for all of us :)

p.s. this is serving as a reminder to myself too btw cause i'm going cuckooooo

This past week was very anxiety inducing in terms of law admissions. What's helped me is to set a date in my calendar at which, if I haven't been accepted anywhere, I can start to worry about what my plans will look like moving forward. For me this is May 15th. I think this leaves enough time in the summer to decide whether to study for another LSAT, apply again, apply for a Masters, consider other jobs, and not to mention to understand what the world will look like in the wake of coronavirus. Until then, I'm going to try to stop obsessing over law admissions. I've done everything I possibly can over the past year to become a competitive applicant.

ya honestly out of all the things i've tried over the years to get a handle on these kinds of stressful situations, proper scheduling and planning has always been the thing that yielded the most positive impact/comfort

"I've done everything I possibly can over the past year to become a competitive applicant."

i think that's about as zen a thought as one could have in these moments, and good job i am sure it will pay off

Was skimming through the Queen's accepted thread and noticed that you also got in. I remembered replying to you on this thread and since accepted threads are basically just for stats I thought I would say congrats! Our patience paid off.

Thank you so much.

Congratulations to you as well! How have you been celebrating?

I firmly accepted yesterday as a gift to my mother lol

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
