Waitlisted today after Deferred pending grades. 

LSAT: 163

CGPA: 3.56

I'm a mature student just finished second year of Poli Sci Undergrad, applying hoping to head to law school rather than finish my undergrad. For experience I played rugby abroad for a year, ran a property management business and did philanthropic work.

still waiting as well! tbh I thought there might've been some movement today since the firm acceptance deadline is fast-approaching next week but, guess not (there was a round around this time last year).

It seems like no offers have been made from the wait list yet. Last year there was some movement right before, and right after the July 2nd deadline. Hoping for the same this year. Do you all know if Western typically emails or calls? I ask because I'm going out of town and will have limited connection to the internet. I want to make sure I catch any communication before the relevant deadline.

I didn't get anything by way of email or phone call. If you receive an offer you'll likely find out through the student portal.

From what I read in the threads last year it looks like people were notified by phone call that they were accepted off the waitlist.

in the waitlist letter, it says you will be notified by phone call and/or email

Hmmmm are those your OLSAS calculated gpas? Seems like it'd be very unlikely for someone not to be accepted with those stats. (assuming their personal statement isn't horrendous or has a significant error)

Yup, my school stats were slightly higher but not by much. Got the waitlist letter back in April, was kind of bummed out but Western was not my first choice so everything is ok!

    • Yea my bad majority was the wrong term to use. However, if the rest of the 1L class responded I do think it is likely that the majority consensus would still be in favour of moving to Kingston. 
    • Almost everyone in the group was marked as having "seen" the post (~220 people) but only 85 responded, so in line with what @ChiasticWalrus said, there are definitely many students not reflected in the poll. Maybe the majority of people are still undecided, and/or people were reluctant to respond that they were staying home because so few others did so? I know I'm still not fully sure what I'm going to do yet given the unpredictable nature of the virus
    • Thanks for chiming in, @Twenty. It's reassuring to hear that someone else had the exact same train of thought that I did. I also see the option to stay home as a unique opportunity instead of as an outright negative. I appreciate the insight regarding studying as well. I'm glad to hear that a good deal of success boils down to independent study and that most other "techniques for success" are still possible through online means. I've always sort of favoured that method myself, so I'm definetely feeling much better about staying home. All the best to you in the upcoming year.
    • This is actually really interesting. Do you know if the numbers are similar for 2Ls/3Ls? My blind guess is that a larger proportion of upper years are willing to remain at home (though I would not be surprised if the majority still prefer in-person). The reasoning is that 0Ls/1Ls are super keen to start law school and be on campus, while seniors are less so.  @ChiasticWalrus I'm not a Queen's student (I'm an incoming 2L at another ON school), but a reason why I opted to take online classes was because if there is a second wave, everything will move online anyways. I've experienced both in-person and remote law school classes, did the cost-benefit analysis, and felt more comfortable staying with my parents. In some regards, I saw the option of taking classes online and staying at home as an opportunity I should not pass up (for both health and financial reasons).   In terms of being (academically) disadvantaged, studying in law school is such an independent process (i.e. learning how to read, analyze, and apply case law is something you learn by yourself) that as long as you keep up with (most of) your readings, obtain/create good outlines, read Getting to Maybe before finals, give yourself enough time to do practice questions and analyze sample answers (I found it really helpful to do practice finals with classmates and discuss our answers - these can be done online), I don't think you will be at a disadvantage. In-person lectures are great because you can have interesting class discussions, but based on my first semester of law school, there was no correlation between how engaging a class was and the grade I got for that class. 
    • This does help, thank you! I can't afford 7sage right now, but I'll keep it in mind for the future. I'll also take a look at Manhattan. Much appreciated.
