Also, congrats!

Accepted! Index score of 75.833 to give everyone still waiting an idea of the cut off.

I haven't received an email, I just checked my application status after seeing the thread. Does anyone know if an email or letter is sent in addition to the downloadable letter? Deadline to accept or decline is March 2 but it didn't indicate the deposit.

Got an email (about 20 minutes after this thread was started, so people checking status there would have got it first).

 

In with international undergrad, LSAT 165.

I did not apply to Manitoba this cycle but I am curious to know if you have been admitted in the Index Category. Important detail for those observing, I think!

 

Congratulations all around. :)

WOW!  I'm in!  My first acceptance!

 

LSAT:  165

GPA w/ drops: 3.43

Index Score: 75.611111 (repeating, of course)

 

I am a mature student who has opened and owned a restaurant for the past 9 years.  I think my LOR's were pretty good, but not stellar, and i have zero volunteer experience.  

 

My second choice behind Ottawa, so I haven't decided if I'm going to accept yet.  

 

Good luck to everyone waiting!

LOR for U of M?

if you're not in the general or index category, you require supplementary documents, like LORs.
