Does UoC average LSATs?

Does UoC average LSATs?

 

 

If an applicant has written the LSAT more than once, the highest score will be used to group their file statistically, however all of their scores from the past 5 years, their average score, and the number of times they have written the LSAT will be taken into account when reviewing their application.

I'm a little late posting this but I am so excited to be going to the UofC this fall!!!

 

Waitlisted February 2nd, Admitted February 24

 

CGPA: 3.48

GPA for last 20 courses: 3.55

LSAT: 161 (October 2015)

Work Experience: a few part-time jobs throughout undergrad

Volunteer: UofC Students' Union volunteer for 2 years where I worked with lawyers from the Calgary community 

References: One really good one from a prof I knew really well throughout my undergrad and another from a prof that I did lots of papers and personal work in the class (so she could speak to my writing ability)

 

Don't know if it makes a difference or not, but I did all four years of my undergrad at UofC and am graduating from there this June

I officially accepted my offer.... but i may end up giving up my spot for an Ontario school. All i know for now is that I've rejected U of A for U of C. If anyone here goes to the Calgary open house/ reception and has the time to fill me in on it that would be great! ( I'm an ontario resident)

I messaged both lolaya and 0Lol about the Dean's Open House. I don't want to hijack the accepted thread with this topic, so if anyone else is interested in what happened at the event please message me directly and I can fill you in!

super late but I got in on March 6 and got a offer for the grad residence last week too. I accepted the offer but am lowkey waiting to hear back from Osgoode even though it's a bit of a long shot

cGPA SUPER low 3.18

L2 was like 3.6 or 3.7 

LSAT 155, 165 (they take highest I believe)

LORs were both profs that loved me so those were good

ECs were decent nothing super special, some volunteer stuff, some academic stuff, but nothing amazing

 

for those of you accepting your offers I'll likely see you in September!
