  1. Rejection/Waitlist

    162, ~3.7 B2
  2. Rejection/Waitlist

    Waitlisted today (Mature applicant)
  3. Good point - and full disclosure - I never contacted UBC to clarify this, so you may want to do so yourself. But as a performance major myself, I find it hard to believe they wouldn't consider any of the undergraduate courses/grades in my degree program. If that's the case... brutal (I highly doubt it though).
  4. I don't think this refers to performance-based courses that are graded. It was my understanding this referred to performance-based courses that are "pass/fail." (i.e. not performance as in "music performance")
  5. Dealing with LSAT Anxiety

    I think this is important to keep in mind. I also felt like a big part of the LSAT was testing how well you can focus, think, and perform under pressure - a necessary skill for lawyers I would imagine.
  6. what can I say, it's how I roll.
  7. Comparing a music degree to other subjects, in terms of objective difficulty, is well... difficult. I really couldn't say myself, and I was a music major, who also took pre-med sciences. You are right to note that it does not fall neatly onto one side of any divide. Advanced music theory and harmony can be pretty math-heavy, and I found many parallels to physics in terms of the abstract nature. It's also one of the only (few?) subjects that uses both right and left brain fairly equally.
  8. Personally, I would take the UP Express from Pearson to Union station (20-25 min), transfer to TTC and take that line all the way up to York (40-45min). It might take a little longer, but you could know with certainty you'll arrive in time to check-in. Even if you wait for luggage at Pearson for an hour, that'll put you up at York for 5:00pm at the latest. I also think you'll be fine to taxi it to York with lots of time to spare.
  9. Waitlist 2018

    Waitlist email today. No sask connection. Will likely be removing myself from consideration, but will sleep on it.
  10. How much does being close matter?

    If money is truly no object, downtown Victoria to downtown Vancouver is a 12-15 min. flight.
  11. UNB sending out rejections??

    My acceptance letter mentioned "after a preliminary review of discretionary applications" - so it seems like I did go to some sort of supplementary review. Not sure? Perhaps that review process is ongoing, and not yet complete. Also, FWIW the offer was made before I had my 162 score (first write was lower).
  12. UNB sending out rejections??

    Whoops. Meant to reply to @UnbLaw2018
  13. UNB sending out rejections??

    I applied in the special category and received an acceptance offer early March.
  14. Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

    Waitlisted today. Mature category. 162/3.01 CGPA. Any idea when the ranking of waitlisted applicants will happen?
  15. Mature Applicants Accepted/Rejected 2018

    Hello fellow seasoned-applicants... just checking in to say hi, and I too am rooting for everyone. If I can indulge in a little group therapy/rant here... The wait, suspense, and general anxiety is KILLING me. I knew going into this application cycle I'd be waiting on UBC and Dalhousie until May/June, but I thought for sure I'd have heard from most of, if not all, the other schools by now. I guess I was a little ignorant as to how this whole process unfolds. One acceptance, one waitlist, a few rejections, and radio silence from seven schools. I consider myself a pretty patient person, but this year has really tested me. I need to start planning!
