Very excited to be able to start this topic.

 

After very little prompting, I received an email from Rose this morning confirming my acceptance. :grin:

 

Best of luck to everyone still waiting to hear back!

Congrats :) !!

 

Just wondering, what do you mean by 'very little prompting'? Did you contact her other than to submit your application?

I'm a bit atypical as my file was more EC's and work experience than anything, but if it helps:

 

3.2/4.3 CGPA undergrad (not sure best two honestly)

3.97/4.0 CGPA master's - degrees about 5 years apart

161 LSAT

 

Cheers!

Yeah I sent her an email yesterday afternoon just to ensure everything was in order with my application, and to try and get a rough idea as to when I might hear back and she got back to me right away the next morning.

Hey congrats, I hope to see you there. My enrolment isn't guaranteed as I can only go if I get accepted into a subsidized program through work. Needless to say my fingers are crossed!

Had you emailed her previously or was it unprompted?

I emailed her in August with questions about the application process in general, but not since then.

Did anyone receive any kind of 'under review' email from admissions? Or a confirmation that their application is complete?

 

In last year's Accepted 2016 thread, they mention that they received an email that their application was under review, but I haven't received that (I did email to make sure that all my supporting documents have been received, and they have). I received one email about paying my application fee (which I did several weeks ago), and that's it!

 

Not knowing anything that's going on is freaking me out! 

 

(Also sorry if this is the wrong thread to post this in!!)

L2 = GPA calculated using only the last two years. 

 

For the record my L2 was 3.93 and my cumulative GPA was 3.90

L2 is your GPA from the last 2 years (or last 10 credits) of your undergraduate degree! Dal will use either your overall GPA or your last 2 years, whichever is better.

How do you check your application status?

 

There's no way to check your status online. I only know that they received my supporting documents because I emailed admissions and asked. The only correspondence I've received is the letter asking me to pay the application fee. I'm not sure if you ever even get an 'application under review' email, but you'll find out via email or by regular ol' mail if you're accepted or rejected.

 

Please correct me if I'm mistaken! :)
