Deferred Decision

Recommended Posts

Received an email today notifying that a letter was in the student centre portal. Letter said they're deferring their decision until they receive the transcript for my current term.

OLSAS cgpa: 3.3 (not sure how L2 would be calculated for my application)

LSAT: 156

Deferred today

cGPA 3.36, L2 around 3.6 but will be around 3.8-3.9 depending on how they calculate after this semester, LSAT 159. Here's to hoping this works out!!

Deferred decision today on student centre

 

CGPA 3.36 L2 3.8 (when winter grades are in) LSAT 161.

After reading past deferred decision threads this is not as good as it sounds.

How good do you expect those winter grades to be? If they're As, then you'll most likely be in with those stats. Good luck.

They should be on par with the 3.8, not lowering or raising my L2 Gpa.

Fingers crossed for you to get into Western or Queen's.

what is the difference between deferred and wait listed?

Deferred decision means they are waiting on your final marks before they make a decision on your application. As of right now deferred applicants are neither accepted, rejected, nor waitlisted, as they don't have the grades to make a final decision.

I was deferred (posted in the wrong thread first) 

CGPA 3.55

LSAT 163 

had a few questions for anyone who knows! 
 

1. what are the chances of getting accepted after having a deferral? Is this a good thing?

2. I’m not going to get one of my final grades until May 15th, I was notified today because of the pushed deadlines associated with C19. Should I be freaking out and pushing to get them sooner? The letter Western sent made it sound like time would be a factor in the spots they have to offer to deferred students.

Just a follow up to my own post. What do you think my chances are? Not really sure what to expect with the deferred decision.

What was your L2 prior to submitting your final transcripts? If they made a deferred decision, they are clearly concerned about your final grades. If they were good, then I would say you have a very good shot given your LSAT score and L2.

For #1: your chances are decent - it really depends on your final grades and where the admissions committee ranked you. It doesn't mean you're out but it isn't a shoe in. What's your L2?

#2: Don't freak out. The delayed grades won't have any impact on their decision to admit you or not.

Before I submitted final grades my L2 was 3.45 ish. With my final grades, it is 3.66

Thanks for the reply, just don't like waiting lol, hopefully a decision will come soon.

Received a deferred decision on April 23! (LSAT 166 / cGPA 3.2 / previously L2 3.6). Just sent in my new transcript a few days ago and hoping they'll update me soon.

My final grades barely budge my cGPA, but my average for just the last year that they don't have turned out to be a 3.95, so I'm optimistic that they'll be happy with that.

    • 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!
