Wow, congrats! I am really glad for your encouraging post.
I also have a less than ideal cGPA (one particularly bad semester), which I have managed to salvage for a L2 of 3.67. The reason your post gives me hope is because passion and drive for law are the two things that I possess, and I really tried to emphasize this in my coursework (lots of BLAW courses) and volunteer work. I too tried to convince them of my genuine desire to settle in Calgary.
Do you mind sharing when your application went "complete"? Thanks!
