Lots of waitlists, is this unusual?

This has been a particularly difficult cycle because of the trump bump - aka people applying more because of his presidency. Also since youre straight out of undergrad, it usually is harder for you since law schools generally want applicants to have some work experience before they start law school. You should re-apply after working for a year or two and Im sure youll get into top schools. Best of luck!

Thanks for the insight! I'll probably try applying again next year. I'm super new to this whole process and I feel like I made a ton of strategic errors with my application

Thanks! I'm also in at the University of Toronto, any opinions as to which is better?

U of T is certainly cheaper. Toronto is very expensive, but NYC is even more expensive. Do you want to practice in Canada or the States? If you want the big bucks, then NYU. If you want to practice in Canada, then U of T.

If you want to practice in Canada, or want to come back to Canada later, go to UofT. If you want to practice in the US go to NYU. Although money should be a factor as is the fact that you can still get NYC biglaw from UofT, without all the debt. I have multiple friends who did NY Biglaw from UofT/osgoode
