Pending Review

Recommended Posts

Anyone else still pending review? I've been pending review since I submitted my application. I also took the November 2020 LSAT if that matters. I emailed admissions in December asking what pending review meant and they replied that they haven't had a chance to look at my application yet. Not sure what that means since they also said that they received my LSAT score already. I also have a bunch of things under my To-Do list as initiated!

I submitted my application around October and since then I had the same thing with pending review and everything was listed as initiated. Literally yesterday I sent them an email because I noticed the dates on the initiated tasks was in 2021 and it listed a date that had yet to arrive. Today when I logged on my status changed to application completed and all the tasks from my to-do-list disappeared. 

I would recommend checking the dates on the initiated tasks and acting accordingly. Mine could just be a coincidence that it got completed the day after I emailed but that's unlikely.

 

Good Luck!

I just checked mine and I had my status as complete since November but all my to-do list says initiated with the 02/11/2021 date. I probably should send them an email about it!

@ MECM can you update this thread if you email Windsor and let us know what they say? I’m in the same situation and I’m considering emailing too but I also don’t wanna press the issue unless it’s unique/not as prevalent among other applicants.

I'm in literally the exact same situation. I submitted my application in early to mid October and wrote the LSAT in August, so I had my score long before I submitted. It seems kinda weird how I'm still pending but I guess it's just part of the process? Idk.

Mine said Incomplete with only LSAT under Initiated but like some random date in 2021 (though I already took the LSAT), so I emailed and then they replied saying that its now complete and I'm at Referred to AC. I would email.

What email address did you send it to? I’m in the same boat.

If it helps anyone, my application went from Pending Review --> Incomplete. It was incomplete for a while. I emailed Windsor a few times and I was told they would look at my application this week to see if it's complete and if it was, she will send it to AdComm for review. She reviewed it this week and now it is referred.

In sum, emailing and pressing them to look at my file made it go faster (it probably also annoyed them, who knows).

Seems like I have the same issue; I submitted my application on 10/28/2020 and it's been stuck on Pending Review since then. But for some reason, every item on the checklist says Initiated with a date of 10/30/2021. I'll probably send an email.

I forgot which it was but I just googled "University of Windsor Faculty of Law contact"

So I emailed them last night and they got back to me this morning. Told me not to worry about the dates as they don't mean anything but they didn't say anything about my application status. As of just a few minutes ago I am still pending review but hopefully this clears some things up for others!

I emailed them last night as well! My application had the weird initiated dates and my status was "Complete" for the longest time.

In their email, they told me my status should say "Pending review" and they'll review it for completeness in the next few days. 

I didn't mention that my application status was "Complete," so I'm assuming they must have reviewed it as my status is now "Referred - Adm Committee" and all the To Dos have disappeared from the list! If you're in the same boat as me, it might benefit you to email them!

Thank you so much for this. I am in the same boat as you were and I sent them an email. Hopefully it will make the process move a little faster.

got a response today! They resolved all the items on my to-do list except for my pending Jan LSAT score and the requirement of a non-academic reference. 
 

I have a mini crisis on my hands which is why the non academic reference isn’t resolved (didn’t submit a non-academic reference and submitted 3 academic references only).

For what it's worth I just got changed from "complete" to "referred" today. I also only submitted two academic references (so no non-academic) and that was on my to-do list for a while but now it's gone!

    • Thank you for the comprehensive reply. I apologize -- this question may have been very basic. I just received an offer from Western on the 11th, so I am trying to get a clearer picture of what to expect. Having been through 1L, would you also happen to have any advice for preparing over the summer before 1L? Any books worth reading or anything like that? Thanks again.
    • This is really all I do on this board at this point. I know of one. Sole practitioner in criminal, but they share office space with more experienced practitioners (and are often brought on to their cases). This person has access to mentorship etc. that way so it isn't the same as just hanging a shingle. To be fair, I think it is a really really tough road for ANY new call to start solo. Whether they graduated top of class at U of T or are a lowly Bond grad.
    • I'm echoing @easttowest in saying that law school was one of the best periods of my life. It was hard and stressful at times, and I definitely struggled with imposter syndrome a lot, but honestly so much fun.  I personally had a different experience at UBC and found the environment really collegial and I genuinely liked 99% of the people I went to school with, but I do think it depends a lot on your small group etc. I do think it's easy to get caught up in the OCI hype but I also had a lot of friends who didn't participate in them because they had other interests, so it's possible to avoid getting sucked into Big Law if you're certain it's not for you.  I'm articling now and genuinely enjoying it as well. 
    • Not at all! I have graduated from my undergrad, but I am a master's student currently, so I thought they may be waiting for this semester's marks as well. 
    • I will also add that my favourite classes were the ones taught by practitioners, who had more hands-on experience. I went to Windsor and loved it.
