Waitlisted Alberta 2020

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Waitlisted this morning. 3.8, 155. Does anyone know likelyhood of getting off the waitlist and/ or how many people they put on the waitlist? From the forum I've heard that the waitlist barely moves.

Got the wait list email first thing this morning

3.5, 160. 

I've also heard that it hardly moves, but it could be different this year because of covid maybe?

cGPA: very low, don't need that negativity in my life

L2: 3.31

LSAT: 161

Does anyone know how long the waitlist is this year? Doesn't seem like too many folks have posted on this thread so perhaps that's a good sign. And good question Exitpbal, will COVID 19 affect anything this year?

Hey thanks! Here's hoping I'll get off the waitlist. Haven't heard from any other schools yet either so not feeling that confident with such a mediocre LSAT score.

The facebook group for the class of 2023 currently has 257 members including some upper-year admins. Maybe a lot of people in the group have declined though or are waiting on other offers.

Do you mean that people have mentioned on the Facebook group that they are waiting for other places?

Actually, many of the people in the Facebook group are in upper years and are probably just in it to help 1L’s and just keep up with what’s going on I guess

Hold in there guys!

 I know what it's like to be on a waitlist, and once my waitlist>acceptance for another program is finalized I'll drop my Law seat. Good luck, I'm not the only current UofA 0L who's waiting for other offers/waitlists.

I just found out that I was waitlisted on April 15th. What a shocking but pleasant surprise this morning!

LSAT: 155, 156, 154 (average 155)

L20 GPA: not sure how they calculated it exactly. I have international exchange credits as part of my L20 GPA. They include INT exchange credits but they don't use WES. I know this because I called them last fall regarding this topic. If they hypothetically used WES for my INT credits then my L20 GPA would sit at 3.65 / 4.0. If you exclude my INT credits, my then L20 would be 3.81 / 4.0. WES gave me two Cs and a B towards my GPA which tarnished my L20 uugghhh

Not trying to discourage anyone here, but I can confirm that UAlberta's waitlist doesn't move much (at least from my experience last year). I only remember a couple people (literally one or two posters) getting accepted off the waitlist . My suggestion is that everyone waitlisted at UAlberta should make plans to study somewhere else and let a possible acceptance from UAlberta come as a pleasant surprise. They kept people waiting until the start of classes last year...

Note for context: I failed to gain acceptance off the waitlist last year, but was accepted this year as an upper year transfer student.

That's exactly my mindset to UAlberta. Judging by the applicant profile from 2019/2020 I would be surprised but very excited if I received an offer. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-u9luOkViBOYVM2bWFMcmJNcUpOZVBZY0lsTVpyOGRIaGFR/view

    • a. You should have or will receive soon an email that has the links, but basically, for the exam itself you will need access to the LawHub site (you can find it off LSAC's site) and ProctorU. You can check all your technical requirements on ProctorU once LSAC has sent you an email with your username and password. Anything you need for the test (ex. ID) is also listed on the LSAC site. b. LawHub has a couple practice exams that will be in the exact same format as the real one. This is the site you'll take the actual exam on, ProctorU is just for security.  c. You can do Writing up to a week earlier than your actual test, and then you have a window of a year afterward to do it. But you need it on file to apply for schools and it takes 2 - 3 weeks to process. Your LSAC account has a practice Writing space to use (the "Get Acquainted" button). You'll need to download a different security software than the one used for the exam. (EDIT: Lots of people have trouble getting the Writing software to work, so don't panic if it won't open for you on the first try. You can also redo Writing without needing to redo the LSAT.)
    • Hi, For all of you guys who have already taken the test, I have a couple of questions in relation to LSAT Flex (I am registered to take it in August) a. What are the steps that I need to take in order to be ready for taking LSAT Flex (i.e. what software to download,  what documents to prepare, is there a web connection that I can/need to test, is there a way to check and certify that I am ready to take the test from a technical perspective, etc.) b. Is there a way to take a "fake" LSAT flex under real-like exam conditions (including all the steps that I need to undertake at a.)? c. When can/should I write the LSAT writing test, before or after taking LSAT Flex? Is it the same setup like for the LSAT Flex? Will I write my writing sample on a computer in a special editor or in an editor of my choosing (i.e. MS Word)? If it is a special editor, is there a way to get acquainted with this editor, does it have spell check and formatting (or is it more like Notepad)? I would not want to have any surprises/scramble to install stuff on my computer on exam day, if at all possible.   Thanks a bunch!
    • For what it’s worth, I interviewed at a mid size municipality outside the GTA last year as a 5 year call. The questions were quite general if I recall:  “describe a situation where you” type stuff and mostly not substantive in nature. Knowledge of municipal or planning wasn’t a large factor in their hiring decision but they did ask some basic questions to get an idea of your level of knowledge.    
    • I was accepted with stats almost identical to yours (3.7 cGPA [3.72 with final winter term marks] and 158 LSAT). Though I was not waitlisted, I recieved my offer of admission later in the cycle during the last large wave of acceptances. Take care when preparing your personal statement and sketch, as well as when selecting those who will write your reference letters and you will have a legitimate shot at an offer from Osgoode- especially if you are able to improve your LSAT a few percentile points. 
    • Holy smokes, that's very intense. You should be very proud of yourself. 167 is an amazing score! Did Mike Kim's Trainer help you?
