Western said offers of admission are sent by regular mail but to check student centre because it will update, so I don't think they're sending offers via email

This was a few years ago but I remember getting an email telling me to check Student Centre; I remember this because I was pissed that it didn't just tell me the good news and made me scramble frantically to open SC. The email may come a bit later, but you may not need to be checking SC incessantly! (Although I likely did when I was going through the process, so I get it).

Good luck everyone! If you have any questions about Western, I'm in 3L and happy to answer. Send me a PM.

I also got an email to check the status in the portal (I am not currently a Western student) and my status was changed to offered acceptance. The portal has the digital versions of the acceptance letters.

 

Stats:

GPA: If I remember correctly OLSAS calculated it as 4.1

LSAT: 163

 

Good luck to everyone!

Was your GPA posted on OLSAS?

If you don't mind, wondering if you are an Ontario resident.

Congrats!!

It was at one point but now it doesn't seem to appear anymore which is why I am just drawing from memory at this point.

 

No, I am not an ON resident. My university uses a different scale system.

just the fact that you have a 171 on its own means there really aren't many others out there like you. Congrats :)

That's fair. Just trying to give a little hope to other splitters out there.
