Waitlist Timeline for Acceptances

Recommended Posts

Hello all! Longtime lurker, first-time poster here. I'm hoping that someone can share any insights they might have regarding the general timeline that applicants with Index Scores similar to my own can expect to receive acceptances off of the waitlist. 

From what I have read here, applicants with scores as low as 72.0-72.5 tend to be accepted off of the waitlist in August. My Index Score currently falls between 73.5-74 (and is closer to 74). Does anyone know if a "high 73" (which I know might be a bit of an oxymoron haha) can expect an acceptance earlier than August? I am an MB resident FYI. 

Also, I know that the number of applicants this year may be much higher due to COVID, so this may effect the applicability of any input. 

Thanks in advance for any insights!

I think the best answer anyone can give is to take a look at the previously accepted threads and pick out someone with a similar stat line (which it seems you've already done).  I think you are tracking all the variables you can - if you didn't find any examples of someone with a 73 being accepted before august, I doubt this will be the year that changes.

I'm sitting around a 76, also in Manitoba - normally that "could" be a first round acceptance mid Feb, but COVID and the number of applicants make everything more uncertain.

Eeeeekk. I'm not MB but in Indigenous category but I'm hoping I can just get in earlier through Index where I'm about 76.2 or 76.18 or something (did calculations yesterday, forgot already, lol). Eeek. COVID really is throwing everything out of whack.

@OP I'm not sure if anyone will have an answer for you, given COVID. I'd echo what Ayrsayle said and look at past threads. I would also point out that I think MB has a specific MB waitlist, too. Good luck!!

    • Yes? You're supposed to. If you're from out of province just have your school send it to OLSAS. If you're from ON then I think there's a way you request via OLSAS itself
    • Hello,  I was recently admitted to law school for Fall 2021. I am curious about what law students do in the summers between semesters. Is it typical or expected that you find an internship after your first year? Are there any organizations or businesses in BC or Alberta that regularly offer summer internships or work opportunities for current law students? Is there anything I can do in the months between now and when classes start to improve my chances of getting law related summer work? Thank you for the advice. 
    • My university just made our Fall 2020 grades "official". Is there a way to send them to Ontario schools so they can factor into GPA calculations? Thanks. 
    • I got the email this week!! I was so shocked. I feel like I just submitted the application.  L2: 3.6 LSAT:162, 84th percentile BA, MPP, good work experience, strong ECs and very multicultural background. Multilingual and tons of experience living abroad.
    • I actually disagree on this one. Normally I would say some job experience in 1L summer (never underestimate customer service jobs!) would look better but I think in a COVID world where there’s a shortage of jobs or not everyone can physically go out and work due to health concerns, it’s completely okay to not work this summer. As long as you spend your summer doing something you can talk about, like what @lewcifersaid, you’re set. So that could be taking up some new hobbies, reading, helping care for a family member. I really think employers will be mindful of this during the current and next recruit cycle.
