  1. Accepted to TRU 2018

    I agree with what you're saying but the thing is that they should not be self imposing deadlines on themselves and giving applicants a timeline of expectation if they are not going to be able to keep to the timetable. The frustration that is being displayed on the boards is a direct result of that I would reckon.

    They would have to pickup their phone for you to demand an answer, which seems like a tall order.

    Yeah... same. I'm just going to choose to ignore the email at this point and assume the next intake is going to be a day or so after the 16th deadline.

    da fuq? I must have totally misunderstood what they meant by that mass email they sent out
  5. Switched Programs + Transfer Credits = CGPA?

    I didn't bother with cgpa schools. I've applied and I'm still waiting. I don't know how helpful my advice would be, but I chose not to talk about that era in my personal statement because it was awhile ago. I have a masters, international work experience and the last few years of my undergrad (once I switched to the arts faculty) are in the 3.6-3.7 range. I figure that stuff speaks for itself in regards to my ability. Not sure what the best way to handle personal statements would be if you're coming fresh out of undergrad, to be honest. I think it's better to focus on strengths and relate your personal/work experiences to why law/why law school x would be a good fit rather than to explain away a bad year.

    I did the same thing with the same program, actually. The story isn't unique to you if that makes you feel any better.
  7. Switched Programs + Transfer Credits = CGPA?

    Cgpa includes all the university courses you've taken, but some law schools will do drops. You'll have to look at the admissions section of each law school website and see how they approach gpa calculation.

    No more admits until the end of April. worst march update ever.

    haha of course they decide to communicate that information the day I decide to finally email and check in with them.

    Same. I'm going to be very unhappy if this big march update is wait until April and see. Why even include that in the email to begin with if thats the case.

    Probably just send a message to the group's administrator. It's getting close to final exam time so I doubt it's being monitored too closely right now.
  12. How Long Were You Green Circled?

    did you do a masters, @M1995? My stats are pretty comparable. I'm assuming the MA is the only thing keeping me in the running at this point.
  13. I think that it is not really worth speculating about until you get your LSAT mark back. You might want to look at UNB when the time comes, as well. They will drop your lowest 25% of credits.

    Hey proflucas! Would that be a 3.43 cgpa/3.65 last 3?

    Yeah, they are brutal on the communication front. I'm not convinced these emails really mean anything honestly. I talked to another poster on the boards who told me they emailed him in January saying they will communicate an update to him mid February. He still hasn't heard anything.
