Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! I just received an email letter letting me know I've been accepted. All documents were submitted by October 23rd, 2015. 

 

Stats for those interested:

 

GPA: 81.5% (Best 3)

LSAT: 168 (96th Percentile)

 

 

I've already been accepted to UVic, but it's very exciting to have options! Good luck to all those still waiting!

Has anyone else received an acceptance?  Anyone know when more might be sent out (looking at the accepted 2015 thread it seems like a bunch came out middle/end of January)?

Have any of you received confirmation that your application was received? Sent mine at the end of November and was told I would be getting a letter but I still haven't heard anything

After I sent in my initial application through ApplyBc (I think that's what it's called), it was processed by TRU then they sent confirmation stating what was stilll missing (transcripts, letters of reference, etc...). I think that's the last correspondence they initiate until they accept or decline you. I emailed a couple times just to confirm that they had received specific items. 

 

As for you not getting the initial letter, you may want to look in to that.

Looks like the first acceptances for 2015 weren't reported on this forum until the third week of January. If this thread is representative of all applicants for TRU, it would seem that they're ahead of the game this year by a little bit.

Hmm okay. The only email I got was from ApplyBC saying my application was completed with my Student #. I'll look into it, thanks for the help @FunnyLawName

    • The University of Calgary and University of Alberta focus on your last X amount of credits (I think it equals out to about 2 years worth of full time classes). It could be worth taking some extra university classes. Maybe contact them and ask if they will calculate your GPA including the classes taken outside of your degree if you are able to do that. If you can get a 173 on the LSAT, I think you are capable of working hard and getting good grades. Plus, you will have a lot of motivation as you got an end goal in sight.
    • Faerae, as someone who claims to support an evidence-based inquiry, maybe you should have supported your original post and your subsequent ones with evidence? Link to academic study? Instead, you preface your assertions with "I just don't think..." and "I'm not convinced." As you're the one making claims contrary to widely accepted convention and widely accepted practices of Canadian / American academic institutions, the onus is on you to rebut the norm. 
    • Are you from the province? If so, my advice would be to make your decision based on which city you hope to practice in or near. It will help you out with networking and make it easier to get to interviews. I got into the University of Calgary and University of Alberta. I ultimately chose Calgary, as I plan on working here, and am grateful I never had to drive/fly to any interviews. If you are from out of province, and have no intentions of staying here then you'll have to consider other factors.  
    • I'm not sure what wilful ignorance or carelessness you're talking about? I asked for information, both in the form of opinions and evidence. I shared mine, making no claims of qualifications or even a suggestion that it's something I feel strongly about, because it seems weird to start a thread asking for opinions without going first. 
    • Thank you for sharing, very nice of you! Have you heard anything back regarding a decision?
