  1. There's no need to be nasty about it. My thought was perhaps it's in contemplation of a potential scholarship, which I understand is a little presumptive, and so I was curious if anyone else had experienced something similar.
  2. It's interesting because I applied through the regular applicant category, which is why I'm a little confused. I haven't heard of this happening to regular applicants, and it would seem a little strange if it was just me...
  3. Does anyone know if it is common for UVIC admissions to request a letter of reference from a supervisor (in this case the lawyer 'I work most closely with') at your place of employment when the references you listed were academic references as you are still in your undergrad? I just received this request and, as they didn't ask for reference letters from the start, am a little thrown off. I have already been accepted to UBC and Dalhousie, both of which I consider a better fit for me going forward, and so if I have no intention of accepting an offer from UVIC should I receive one is it worth it to waste the time of my lawyer and further time of the admissions committee? I'm curious if anyone else has had a similar experience?
  4. JxAircraft you are an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your story.
  5. If it makes you feel better I just botched mine oh so badly. It was painful.
  6. Hi, I wrote the December LSAT and received an Offer January 11th.
  7. Hi islandperson, Thank you! I'm still in a bit of a daze about the whole thing and am really excited. Thank you for the dl on waitlists and suggestions on where to go for more info. I may look more seriously at off campus housing as well. All the best!
  8. Does anyone know what the chances are of getting a spot living in residence once you are waitlisted? I recently put in an application when I realized how bad the housing situation is and to my horror I found that I am: 624 for a Brock Commons studio 2635 for a Marine Drive Studio I've pretty much given up on Marine Drive, but I am still holding out hope for Brock Commons...maybe?
  9. status changed to Conditional Offer on January 11th. approximate CGPA with drops: 84.21 (i went to two schools and used the converter on this website so it's a little unclear if this is accurate - my four year degree I'm finishing now has a GPA of 4.05/4.33) LSAT: 162 my personal statement touched on my strong extra currics, which include volunteering for my local courthouse, being in the last semester of a paralegal degree which includes a lot of substantive law such as contracts, torts, property and company law, and working as a legal administrative assistant for the past year and a half at a civil litigation firm in downtown Vancouver. Good luck to everyone still waiting!
