Waitlisted this morning. 3.9/4 GPA. MSc from top UK uni, good ECs (published journal article, volunteering etc...), I would think good LoRs. Looking back at personal statement I can see why they might not like it.  Completed french interview, thought it went well.

Accepted waitlist offer but preparing for LSAT and applying other places in US T-14 and Canada next cycle.

What deadline did they give you to accept or decline the spot on the waitlist?

Yes I do speak French. I applied closer to the deadline. Mature student. No interview.

Does anyone know if you can get a French proficiency interview after being waitlisted but before being accepted? I'm on the waitlist right now and I kind of want to go portaging and camping in the mountains for a week or two but I don't know if I'll have service. So I'll be obviously pretty upset if it turns out they're expecting me to be available and I end up missing my shot at getting off the waitlist. I'm confident in my French abilities but I don't think I did a good job of highlighting it in my application so just wanted to see if anyone has gotten a French interview post-waitlist offer, please let me know!

Hey! Im waitlisted as well, and in my letter it said that if eventually accepted, I might have to register for classes in French and that I was "offered a place on the waitlist because we are assured of your passive bilingualism."  

The sentence seemed like it was a generic part of the letter so I'm thinking if you're waitlisted then they assume your French skills are acceptable. Maybe it was a personalized part of the letter but I really doubt it! Hope that helps :)

Finally WL'd today. Even if I get in, unsure if I'll accept if I get in off of it. Honestly kind of hoping I won't need to make that decision myself.

GPA: 3.12

LSAT: 160/166 (163)

I am surprised they notified you yesterday because it was a public holiday in Quebec.

Right? I was also pretty surprised, especially considering the SQDC was even closed.
