  1. Congratulations!! That is so fantastic! Do you know where you were on the waitlist?
  2. Hey guys, I am a little late to the party because I didn't really expect to get into UBC this year, but I did... exactly one day AFTER all of the scholarship applications were due. Lol. I was just wondering if anyone had any good websites for finding scholarships which are merit-based for students entering 1L. I probably won't qualify for most need-based scholarships due to the fact that I have no student loans out, but my average was above 90 for the last two years of my undergrad, so I am looking for something that considers those grades. Do those kind of scholarships exist, and is there some kind of search engine that I can use to find them? Thanks in advance for your help - I am hopeless at this! I have been looking independently but I am really not finding much.
  3. They're on the boards somewhere here already but my average was approx. 83-84% and LSAT was 161. Average for this past year (which they didn't count towards my cGPA) was over 90%, as was last year, so there was a strong trend. Not sure to what extent that mattered but I did send them my most recent grades for the file.
  4. Accepted to UVic 2017

    I had accepted a spot at UVic and withdrew today via email (no response yet) in favour of a UBC offer. Good luck everyone!
  5. Received and accepted an offer today via the discretionary waitlist!
  6. Offer received today from the Discretionary Waitlist. I started in position #7, so it has moved at least that much
  7. What position were you? They advised me it will move around 10+ spots - did you hear differently?
  8. I called and then emailed! They advised that it moves quite a bit over the summer
  9. I'm waitlisted #7 on the discretionary waitlist which is apparently different! Does anyone know how much movement this list sees typically? I didn't even know it existed! Lol
  10. Waitlist #7 - does anyone know how much it tends to move? I'm not sure if I should remain hopefully or not with so few spots
  11. Has anyone heard anything yet? Sounds like the waitlist has been ranked, which surprises me as I don't believe discretionary offers have gone out yet, but perhaps my file has just ended up in limbo somewhere in "File Complete - Awaiting Review" land... just wanted to make sure lol
  12. I'm surprised the wait-list is ranked yet! Do discretionary waitlist offers just go at the end of the waitlist then?
  13. I can second this actually - I really had trouble sleeping as well and I am not an anxious test-writer typically. I don't know that it would necessarily be worth the wait as I found the 8am to be managable nonetheless, but it all depends on how you feel! Definitely worth taking into consideration though. Or just go to bed at like 5pm the night before lol. If you really take the time to go through them slowly and learn from each test, that should be plenty. However, you can always get more if you need them, or repeat past tests as was mentioned above, so don't worry about running out - I found the most recent LG sections to be the most helpful though, as some of the older ones are different (only a tiny bit, though).
  14. Totally makes sense - how many PTs do you have by the way? Do you have access to all of the previous LSATs? I would recommend moving slower through the PTs and taking time to revise your mistakes carefully, rather than doing a ton of practice tests very quickly, as that is one mistake which I certainly made. Also check out the LSAT tracker if you haven't already - I think it's on the manhattan prep website and I believe it's free - it helps you to figure out where your areas of weakness are so you can tailor your studying. But yes definitely take your time to figure it all out, and give your all to whichever test you commit to
