How many people are still waiting to hear back?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm worried. My B2 is a 3.8 and my I have a 160 for my LSAT but I've yet to hear back. I've read a handful of people getting accepted with lower stats and so I wonder if there is an issue with the rest of my application. To be honest, I thought I would hear back from Queens by now, and I don't know if I should contact them? Wait? Give up? Are spaces already filled? I'm waitng on Osgoode as well--I've been in queue since December 18th.

Is anyone else in a similar position?

Yes I'm in the same position! Same B2/L2/B3, 157 LSAT + an MA. I'm still waiting to hear back from Queen's, Osgoode and Ottawa (Waitlisted by Western). I'm not sure why we haven't heard anything but maybe it's somewhat good that we haven't been rejected? Not sure how we're supposed to feel or what to expect.

Yes, I suppose you're right about that! I don't know if Queens even rejected anyone (according to this forum)? But at least for Osgoode, yeah.

Right, yes, for Queen's they seem to be behind. Last year they sent out rejections in early April but it seems like none have been sent out yet. (Holding out a glimmer of hope for Osgoode).

Same boat! I havent heard anything from Queens. My stats are similiar and in some cases higher than some individuals in the recent acceptance wave. I hope I hear back soon.

Hey all! As an FYI, the Queen's acceptance page has 173 members - keep in mind the class size is 200. It seems they have *about* 20 spots left if you factor in the people who don't have facebook.

I'm in the group and I think some of the members are also upper years? Could be wrong though

There are undoubtedly still spots available and more will open as people accept different offers in the coming months/weeks.

Regardless, good luck everyone!

Is 160 your only score? What is your cGPA?

Waiting on Western (deferred!), Queens (no word yet) and Ottawa (no word yet)...

Was rejected from Osgoode.

Olsas CGPA: 3.57 (terrible first year)

Olsas B2: 3.69

Olsas L2 3.66

Highest LSAT was 155... 

General

After going through the admitted threads for all the schools like crazy, I'm seeing that a lot of admitted applicants not only have decent grades but they also seem to have a lot of unique extracurriculars and/or substantial work experiences. And also, I feel like my PS could've been much better ughhghghgh

I'm still really hopeful cause somehow I didn't catch the rejection wave at Western and Ottawa... To those who are waiting with no response like me- let's keep the hope alive! We still have months to go!!!

Also in the same boat, B2/L2: 3.73, LSAT:160. Haven’t heard a thing from Queens, Ottawa, Osgoode or Ryerson yet.

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.

It's interesting that you haven't heard anything from Western, judging by the forums it seemed like most people had a decision made by now.

Yeah, I remember during our law school panel, Western rep stated everyone hears back by end of May so no clue! just says "applied"

    • 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.
