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.

    • My apologies!! I mistyped it hahaha my GPA is an 83.2%. I felt super good about my PS because I’ve done a lot of work with EDI in my community and talked about my interest in criminal law, but I guess it wasn’t enough :(.
    • I’ve long (and vocally) thought the law school obsession with keeping quiet about your career successes was a foolish and performative exercise designed to protect the delicate egos of law students. Law students, despite essentially all identifying as “type A” personalities, are deeply insecure and terrified others will be better than them at... well, anything. I think people shouldn’t be afraid to ask how others did in the recruit or share their own experiences one-on-one.  With that said, @easttowest is right about publicizing your successes. If your accomplishment is an accomplishment, people will find out about it. I know everyone in my class that got a job I think is remotely interesting. There’s no need to post about it on LinkedIn the day you secure it, and, to be honest, I assume those who do are themselves insecure and in need of validation.  Humblebrag by updating your LinkedIn profile when you start your new gig like the rest of us. 
    • I can ask my friends what they did. I've only ever lived with buddies in Ottawa. The Facebook accepted page would be a good place to start.
    • For the FC, the judges rank their candidates and the most senior judges get to pick from the pool of candidates first and select their top choice (or the next preferred candidates if their top choices have been selected). The SCC is the same idea with a slightly different process. I wouldn't panic, all the offers may not have gone out.
