  1. Dean's open house

    I'm going to go for sure, would love to know what to expect, but excited either way!
  2. Accepted to Calgary 2018

    LSAT: 166 - 2nd write. First one I wrote bombed completely. cGPA/L2: This one is tough, as I did school overseas. WES pegs me at 3.7-3.8, but from what I gather, U of C does a straight 1:1 conversion, so 3.3 probably. My years were all consistent. EC: Extensive volunteering and community advocacy, lots in the court too. Work Experience: This is what I think got me in, years of solid executive level experience with recommendations from CEOs. I applied regular category. I have a accepted and paid the deposit. I thought for sure, that I wouldn't get into U of C because of my GPA or the fact I wrote the LSAT twice with a terrible first try. They are definitely holistic as on paper I know I'm not nearly as good as some of the people who have shared their stats on here. I honestly wish everyone the best and hope you all get into your schools of choice, and am crossing my fingers for you all.

    You and me both! I was really expecting to hear back on Friday, seems the historical thing beginning of Feb... but nothing so far. Seems Fridays are a big day, but who knows...
  4. Rejection Timeline?

    Me too, 3 weeks and counting. I feel like time somehow is moving slower since the circle went green. Haha
  5. Rejection Timeline?

    I think that would make sense but speaking from a logistical sense, keeping in mind rolling admission, I'm not sure if it's likely. I have seen a waitlist and acceptance come out in that sequence, so I don't think so. But I'm sure as rolling offers approach expiry, new admission rounds get accelerated. It's quite opaque from what I'm reading. I still can't quite figure it out. Been seeing some waitlisted that have higher stats, EC, etc. than some accepted. I've given up trying to figure it out to ease my nerves, lol.
  6. How are admission file orders determined

    U of S looks at special considerations in May, other than that it seems they weigh GPA more heavily than LSAT according to their info, but their stats may seem otherwise. U of C seems completely random.
  7. Application process

    Just an update - TRU staff sent me a response to my inquiry about my application and confirmed they have everything they need. Looks like they're slowly getting un-bogged =) . .
  8. Any Chance? L2 4.0/4.3 LSAT155 UNB Alumni

    It seems the UNB connection is a huge thing, I'd feel pretty good about your chances =)
  9. Chances? [3.0 / no LSAT]

    That's kind of the point I was making... Except for your last sentence. That actually, is just 100 percent false. I know lots of people who are very smart (far smarter than I) who tried and couldn't do that. I think they'd be hurt by that comment. Sorry.
  10. Chances? [3.0 / no LSAT]

    Untimed I was getting 178-180 consistently with probably double the time per section. I'm really not good with timed stuff. Unfortunately for me, untimed predictions meant nothing. I did about 10 timed tests with a physical proctor for the full test (I owe my partner lots for suffering with me lol). Exact test sims,, writing on a scan tron (so that over time that doesn't trigger nerves on test day), the 1 minute warning sometimes being missed (to rely on your watch), and with simulated distractions (doesn't take much, I live downtown). I finally wrote and fell within the low of my predicted score (166), which was a very tight spread with that many tests for data points. This also helped me focus on the sections I needed help in. Understand that it's a marathon. I don't know a marathon where endurance isn't a top factor. It is fatiguing (was for me). Build your endurance to write this test. Don't add too many distractions. Some paper ruffling will piss you off sufficiently =) It actually got to a point that I was doing games for fun on the couch in my spare time. Hopefully I don't have to write that test again and get an offer this year. LOL With a 3.0, from what I read, you will need to probably score above 168, but realistically 170+ depending on what school you want and how they see your undergrad program. Otherwise, alternative admissions categories, etc. could help you (mature, special considerations). Good luck!
  11. Applicant information from Windsor leaked

    This sucks, but mistakes do happen. I've worked in high level corporate for a long time before deciding to go to LS, and this happens a lot internally. And I guarantee the person who sent it felt sick to their stomach after pressing the button. I didn't sift through all the pages, but if the info was all above board and nothing shady was exposed regarding practices, then it was just a case of human error. Personally, I have accidentally copied someone on something that I really shouldn't have. I felt horrible and took responsibility. It was a combination of sleep deprivation, no coffee in the house, and working at 2AM. These admissions staff are probably not far off from the overworked part... Mistakes will continue until we all get replaced with AI =P On the flip, I understand how pissed I'd be just at getting a rejection letter or finding out I was rejected in a way that wasn't the most delicate. But, we are all going to encounter far worse than this in our legal careers. I think the important outcome is that an appropriate response was issued reading the situation and sincere ownership was taken. Seems that happened from what I am reading. Good luck to everyone who got rejected in your other applications!

    That is awesome, congrats!!! I'm checking my phone hourly for an email from them these days, lol!
  13. Application process

    Sorry, my clipboard copied the wrong link, but address is the exact same (just the department changes). Good luck!
  14. Application process

    https://www.tru.ca/law/admissions/first-year.html It's at the bottom on the admissions page, you might have missed it... it says it's the mailing for references but they got mine when I sent it all there as I don't imagine there being a different address.
  15. Any way to track acceptances?

    I was a bit worried I was being too anxious as they are not responding to emails, hopefully they'll get caught up soon and get some acceptances for us out =D
