I took the LSAT in December and signed up for the February LSAT thinking that I would definitely need to retake it to have a chance at being accepted into UBC. However, I scored 163 in December, and when I use the index calculator with my cGPA (86.06% after drops), the index works out to 92 on the dot, so I don’t think I need to retake it.

Would UBC delay evaluating my application if I am registered for the February LSAT? I am going to cancel it soon anyway, unless someone believes that I should take it for a better shot at admission.

No they do not put a delay on your file if you have competitive stats. I read on their website that they do, so I called to confirm and he said that even if you are writing the February LSAT, they would not delay your file if you were competitive. And since you're going to be de-registering anyway, it'll show up in their system so you have nothing to worry about! 

92 is auto-admit, so you're in the clear, don't bother re-writing haha. There's already been people admitted in the 91.5+ range.

I would just double check you cGPA calculations. I had some issues with it at first. You don't want to cancel only to find out your index is actually lower than you self-calculated. 

I don't remember exactly, but I think I remember students saying they contacted UBC law admissions and having them confirm their index score. 

Either way, best of luck!

I spoke too soon. I checked the status and it changed to “Offer.” Thank you to those who replied, and good luck to others who have applied :)

    • I never really had any professors I hated - I had profs I wasn't fond of their teaching style, but since every student varies on that it's REALLY hard to find out if a certain prof is 'good' or not. For instance, I disliked Fadel as a prof, but part of that was that I had him for Biz Org which is like the opposite of my area of interest. So coupling a lack of interest in the class with his teaching style made it seem worse than his teaching style probably was. Ultimately I find a great prof can help make even dry material seem fun, and a bad prof can make good material much less interesting, but you probably won't find too many profs you just can't learn from. And worse case scenario, you can do a lot of the learning on your own too!
    • I have an LLM (in the field of law I planned to/do practice in) and I got it right after my JD and before articling/getting Called. I doubt it has been the sole reason I got my articling position or my job after I got Called, but I was told by my principal that he found the LLM very impressive. I didn't do it to be more employable but rather because I wanted to and I enjoyed the area of law, but I think that it certainly can't have hurt my employability.   (Not even remotely in the IP field so can't speak to anything specific to that field).
    • Did you have prior litigation experience? 
    • I made a transition myself after articling, went from solicitor work into a litigation practice. Did it through sheer networking. Its difficult but very possible.
    • Hello everyone, just had a quick question here. Do most Canadian law schools accept the February LSAT for admission for that year? Which ones don't? Also, are you less likely to get in somewhere with your Feb lsat? Do spots usually fill up by then?   Thanks
