Accepted to Calgary 2018

Recommended Posts

LSAT: 166 - 2nd write. First one I wrote bombed completely.

cGPA/L2: This one is tough, as I did school overseas. WES pegs me at 3.7-3.8, but from what I gather, U of C does a straight 1:1 conversion, so 3.3 probably. My years were all consistent. 

EC: Extensive volunteering and community advocacy, lots in the court too.

Work Experience: This is what I think got me in, years of solid executive level experience with recommendations from CEOs. I applied regular category.

I have a accepted and paid the deposit.

I thought for sure, that I wouldn't get into U of C because of my GPA or the fact I wrote the LSAT twice with a terrible first try. They are definitely holistic as on paper I know I'm not nearly as good as some of the people who have shared their stats on here.

I honestly wish everyone the best and hope you all get into your schools of choice, and am crossing my fingers for you all.

Declined my offer today (going to UBC instead). Best of luck, all.

Also declining in favour of UBC.  Best of luck!

I could kiss you. Thanks for the extra 2 spots. Refreshing the forum usually brings sorrow when 7 people get accepted that day and Im still waiting.
