Lots of people are rejected with high stats. High stats are certainly not a unique trait of u of t admits. Especially once you reach a certain threshold they don’t illustrate a significant difference in terms of “how smart/capable” you are. I assume that I made it onto the wait list bc my application was interesting (I don’t have a stellar lsat or gpa) not because they were “being generous”. Also we were waitlisted and most of the acceptances were made prior to COVID really being an issue in Canada.
