GPA 3.21

unfortunate, but glad to hear anything during these gruelling months of waiting. Good luck to everyone else still waiting! 

This makes me increasingly nervous. :blink:

Anything specific about your application that you thought was the reason why? I have a lower 2point lower LSAT but a 0.05 higher GPA btw.

@mazzystar I assumed it was my gpa my first year dragged it down...my PS wasn’t tailored to western don’t know if that could’ve also been a factor? Extensive volunteer experience, ECs are okay but not impressive lol, great LORs one from a superior judge...but don’t be nervous it seems this whole admissions thing is all over the place haha. I wish you all the best I hope you hear some good news soon! Good luck :)

I have a low cGPA and a lower LSAT score and I got the deferred decision response.

Admissions decisions aren't simply a calculator you put numbers in, there's plenty of plausible explanations here. PS/LoR, GPA and LSAT trends, etc.

Did everyone get a letter for their rejection from the assistant dean as well?

Rejected a couple months ago - for the sake of having more complete data I'll include my stats here. 

GPA 3.9 and LSAT 155 

Outstanding extracurriculars, LORS and 2+ years of work experience in professional services - I was hoping the high profile corporate job would help my application but guess not.

    • Greetings everyone, I completed my Bachelors degree from India last year, And I have a 3.7 GPA With 170 LSAT Score. My Ambition is to work as a Lawyer in Canada, But I'm really afraid to apply as I don't know about the job prospects for International Students in Canada.  I know how risky it is, To come to Canada on a student visa, And expect a job after three years on a post graduation work permit. So is it worth applying, as an international student?
    • It seems to be a recent phenomenon where getting approved without a cosigner with no credit history is the norm. Is it a fairly safe assumption that not much is going to change between now and this time next year? Probably. But why chance it? It's not hard to get a good credit score. If you open a basic student credit card account and make minimum payments on time for a year or so you'll probably have a score of around 700~. You have to be late an entire 30 days before a late payment is reported on your credit report (though banks may increase your interest rate if you're consistently late). You don't even really have to worry about paying off the balance in full each month--though it is good advice to help avoid overspending--as long as you pay down the balance to lower your utilization around a month or so before you apply for credit, as far as your credit score is concerned you're in the exact same position as a person who paid the card off in full each month. If you get a card from your current bank, you can link your credit card and debit card with online banking. Meaning you log into online banking and you'll see both accounts. You can see your credit card minimum payment and due date and transfer whatever amount you want from your debit account to your credit card to make a payment. It only takes a few seconds. Most banks even have features where they will text or email you notice that you have a payment coming up. There's really no hassle at all, it's not much more than a 30 second commitment once a month. As far as rent goes, rent generally doesn't show up on your credit report unless you were missing payments and your landlord took you to the tenancy board and got a judgement against you. Cell phone bills are reported on your credit report, but they don't really help to establish credit--they mostly just hurt you if you miss payments. Utilities like cable/internet/house phone won't show up unless they go to collections. Some cities will also send things like unpaid parking tickets to a collection agency too. Not having a credit card doesn't necessarily mean you have no credit. My girlfriend did a number on her credit score by making a bunch of late cellphone payments during undergrad for example If you want to verify whether you have (or don't have) a credit history you can get a free credit check from Borrowell (Equifax score) or CreditKarma (a Transunion based score). Borrowell updates your score automatically once a month and CreditKarma does it weekly. They're VERY useful.  
    • Waitlisted on May 10. LSAT: 154 Cgpa: 77% (UBC) and 3.01 (OLSAS calculated) due to a bad first year. L2: 88% and L3: 85% (UBC) Excellent EC's and work experience. I'm assuming references were strong.
