  1. Chances? (3.02, 3.3, 163)

    Im in a similar boat. My GPA got all messed up from doing full time language studies in another country and using it as transfer credits. I don't think the UofC will listen to my pity story of accidentally enrolling in newspaper reading when it was above my level. I was waitlisted for 6 months last year and rejected on the frist day of classes. Was definitely carried by my ECs. Rewrote my LSAT and boosted it from 159 to 166. Sitting at a 3.3ish? Not sure how they are calculating my language courses. Just hoping for the best until I get a rejection letter.
  2. How Long Were You Green Circled?

    Oh sweet summer child. Its fairly random, but people with better stats seem to have a shorter turnaround. They will have a decision of Accepted, Waitlisted or Rejected by June (but they finish them by May). So anytime between now and then is fair game.
  3. Accepted to Calgary 2018

    I could kiss you. Thanks for the extra 2 spots. Refreshing the forum usually brings sorrow when 7 people get accepted that day and Im still waiting.

    Stats? Also how long were you green circled?
  5. If you took the LSAT unprepared you owe it to yourself to study and blow it out of the park. UofC average hovers around the 80th percentile, nothing impossible with a lot of hard work.
  6. Rejection Timeline?

    They waitlist candidates that they are impressed with but not able to give an offer to just yet. They most likely haven't sent 120 acceptances yet. They are saying "Hey, we like you. But we want to wait until the other applications are submitted before we decide." There are also many people who are accepted and choose to go somewhere else which can create a spot for someone on the waitlist. Last year someone got accepted August 1st. I was wait listed from March until September last year and only got a rejection letter on the first day of classes.

    When did you have all your transcripts and references in? After everything is submitted your status changes from an ugly orange triangle to a beautiful green circle, which indicates your application is being reviewed.

    Congratulations! How long did it take for you guys to go from green circle to an offer?

    How were your ECs? A one week turnaround is fantastic. My last reference said they would have it in this week, guess that means friday. Haha
  11. Holistic Admissions... ?

    Are you me? 166 December LSAT, Low LSAT score the year before, unsure of how my international grades are converted, My GPA is a bit lower, and Legal volunteering experience. I had a 159 last year and was waitlisted March 15th, got rejected September 6th (first day of classes). Im hoping the 7 point improvement and extra law related volunteering will be the difference. Good luck to both of us. Im just waiting on my last reference who should be in this week.
  12. Chances for Admission: LSAT 156 GPA 3.74

    No one can really be sure. Maybe your ECs are really great and the references and personal statement were perfect. A lot also depends on who sees your application and what characteristics they look for. I had a higher LSAT and lower GPA last year and was waitlisted until September, got rejected on the first day of classes. Just be patient and hope for the best, some great advice I got was "don't check the lawstudents.ca forums every day." Good luck, for both of us.

    2 weeks left guys. Chances look slim but in my sister's class there were a couple people who received offers the day before class started. If we haven't received a rejection letter there's still a chance! Can someone please change their mind about school and reject their offer. I'd truly appreciate it.
  14. Waitlisted at Calgary 2017

    Thanks for the first piece of good news in a long while! Hope everyone is holding up well. It's nice to know I'm not going crazy by myself.
  15. Waitlisted at Calgary 2017

    Any news? Anyone get accepted recently? We seem to be in a deadzone.
