How many people are still waiting to hear back?

Ottawa waiting until mid-July to respond is insane. Not sure what the provisional-to-firm acceptance date was last year but July 2nd is the date this year. So you'd theoretically have to acceptance a provisional acceptance elsewhere and forfeit your Ottawa acceptance prior to even knowing whether you'd get into Ottawa, if you'd prefer Ottawa. That's crazy!

I have provisionally accepted the Windsor Dual JD but would like to hear back from other programs before July 2nd so I can consider avoiding the Dual JD enormous cost. To think I'd spend 200k when I could theoretically be unknowingly accepted to a program that costs far, far less than that is really frustrating.

I'm in the same boat, but I decided to just accept my offer to the Dual JD. Spending another year applying seems like a complete waste of time and money re-applying. I know it'll be more cost effective in the long run compared to the Dual JD tuition but that is only IF I get into another school. Hopefully we hear back from other schools for this cycle soon!

I provisionally accepted Queens this week, and am still waiting to hear back from Uottawa. It's a mind boggle but to add fuel to the fire about Uottawa: 

I got wait-listed in 2017 and Literally maybe 3 days before the start of the semester ? They called me and were like can you start classes...I was like HOLD up?? I couldn't even believe, like awesome got in but 3 days? 

I couldn't go obviously... (I was supposed to have finished my MA much earlier and they weren't going to let me do both programs in the same semester) .... so yeah...even if you get on the wait-list there's no guarantee they will call you with enough time to prepare or ever even tell you that you're not in after they put you on the wait-list (happened to me another year where I just never heard back at all after wait-listing).

Positive from other years though: I did hear from them a lot sooner about the waitlist status than this year ...which take what you will from that. 

They also don't give clear or concise messaging when you do email them so...🤷‍♀️

I finally got around to declining my provisional acceptance of a spot this morning. I'm a little superstitious with everything that's been going on, so I wanted to literally be living in my new place in Victoria before I felt sure that I wouldn't be moving to Kingston. ;)

Hopefully one of you on here will be offered my spot soon!

Do you guys think there will be another early June wave of acceptances before spots are gone?

I feel like there will be another small wave on Friday (seems to be their favourite day for acceptances), after that I think it'll be sporadic. I'm getting so anxious and just want to know :(

I'm also wondering if nobody has been rejected yet ..

Ya that's the strangest part there hasn't been a single reported Rejection on this forum and we're into June and all these people are still waiting...I think a mass wave of rejection is coming.

I echo this. I usually try to tell myself that no news is good news, but in this case who knows lol

Same here! Currently waiting for both Queens and Ottawa. I was hoping to see some movement today.

Also still waiting to hear from Queen's and Ottawa! I'd be shocked if no one heard anything today from Queen's...

My fingers are crossed for something today from Queen's.. honestly being waitlisted at Osgoode has made me re-think my prior insistence on Queen's. I'm hoping they give all candidates a fulsome review.

I read somewhere once that you could in theory not even be reviewed because the class could be near full and they rank by cGPA and Avg LSAT though they decide by B2 and Highest LSAT so they could not even get your file i.e. auto reject for anyone they don't think they'll get to.

Unsure if that's true, or even standard but yeah.

Honestly.. I buy this.

    • My original thoughts were that I would be staying at home and doing the online learning instead of moving to Kingston. I tend to err on the side of caution and I'm just not sure if I want to risk in person classes yet. Many of those close to me are higher risk, so that probably played a large part in my initial decision.   This is really interesting and it makes me wonder if my original decision is really the right one to make. If I moved to Kingston, I would theoretically be away from my higher risk family (barring visits, which might not even be a good idea). Me staying at home would carry the benefits of saving a year of rent money (a big plus, imo) and potentially being safer in terms of the virus. I should note that even I'm not yet a member of this Facebook group, so there may be a larger population of students who plan to stay home that aren't reflected in this survey. I do wonder if I would miss out on part of the experience though, but if it's only going to be a "partial" experience to begin with, I'm not sure if I can justify the extra rent costs (on top of tuition) along with the potentially extra virus risk. I just hope I wouldn't be disadvantaged in any way compared to the rest of the class. I really do hope that Queen's will be able to maintain an even footing for those who stay at home and those who can make it in person. I know Queen's intends to offer full online learning, but maybe someone with more experience/ or who is already enrolled at Queen's can weigh in on the potential pros/cons of the in person experience vs. the hypothetical online experience that we're all being faced with right now.
    • Hi all, I was waitlisted this cycle and recently went to check the status of my application. I am unable to log in because the site tries to direct me through an @uwindsor.ca email address made with my name which I don't have the password for and have never seen before. I'm planning on sending an email out on Monday just to see what's going on but figured I'd check to see if anyone else is currently experiencing the same thing. Perhaps it's just an issue stemming from a new site update or something. Thanks in advance!   
    • No, marks over 90% require special permission, but marks up to 90% can be awarded without permission.
    • Isn't the max at Allard 90% anyways? And even then, the prof will need special permission or file some kind of paperwork. I know people who got 90s.
    • There was a poll done on the Queen's law class of 2023 Facebook page a little over a month ago. Out of 85 votes, 81 people indicated that they would move to Kingston while 4 indicated that they would remain at home. Assuming nothing has changed it would seem that the majority of students are looking to move to Kingston in the fall, including myself. Also, I need roommates so y'all should slide into my DMs.
