  1. 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.
  2. I had accepted a spot at UVic and withdrew today via email (no response yet) in favour of a UBC offer. Good luck everyone!
  3. Received and accepted an offer today via the discretionary waitlist!
  4. Offer received today from the Discretionary Waitlist. I started in position #7, so it has moved at least that much
  5. What position were you? They advised me it will move around 10+ spots - did you hear differently?
  6. I called and then emailed! They advised that it moves quite a bit over the summer
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. I'm surprised the wait-list is ranked yet! Do discretionary waitlist offers just go at the end of the waitlist then?
  11. 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).
  12. 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
  13. Maybe I'm underthinking this, but you could just do both Sept and Dec if you feel prepared enough by September. Then, if it doesn't go well, you can write in Dec. However, UBC told me via phone that the rolling admissions system does not disadvantage people who get looked at later in the cycle (aside from February as this is after the cut-off). I don't really understand how that could work, but that's what they said... so keep that in mind - maybe ask them yourself. My advice would be not to make any plans about when to write until you have done a diagnostic after some studying - you might find that your diagnostic after a bit of review is much higher than the cold one - who knows. For some people, 4 months is more than enough, so you never know. Basically, start studying first and make decisions later would be my advice. My last piece of advice is that if you are taking fall courses, DO NOT DO THE LSAT AT THE SAME TIME. Some people can do it, and I certainly tried, but I found that no matter how much I thought I was going to study, I totally didn't, just because it was either my grades (permanent) or my LSAT (re-doable) that were going to suffer.... the choice seemed obvious So more than the admissions cycle, I would think about what is going to be happening in your life at each time point and which one will be most conducive to studying.
  14. What was your index this year? It might make a difference if you were very close to the cutoff vs. very far away
