  1. When I did my conversion from u of a to u of s I simply made the gpa out of 4.3 since I didn't have any A+'s. So ya, my understanding is that an A+ being a 4.3 is the only difference between the two.
  2. Honestly I don't think you would be likely to get in this year, and if you were it would be at the end of the process. I would rewrite the LSAT. 158+ and you're in
  3. definitely possible but no guarantees. is your partner from sask?
  4. if you get the LSAT up to 160 you're in for sure otherwise possible waitlist admit.
  5. I would guess that it was not many people wanting to transfer, my understanding is that about 15 people per year transfer out of usask so there's space
  6. only know of 1 student who transferred, possibly 2 or 3 total assuming I haven't seen/don't know of some haha.
  7. I can let you know next week about how many students transfer TO u of s, but I would guess not too many. It’s not a hotspot haha. I would still guess you’d be looking at B- to B+ average to be safe though!
  8. You didn’t give up a seat, just a ranking number on the waitlist which is likely irrelevant at this point in the process(especially since you are an AB resident).
  9. I know someone who was ranked top 5 last year and only got in the week before classes. Don’t expect much movement off this waitlist.
  10. I was in a studio unit in grad house last year, so i can answer those questions. 1. There was a fridge in my unit though I brought my own toaster and kettle. Pillow and mattress are provided but the blankets and sheets you have to provide yourself. You can use the communal fridges but almost nobody does(except for potlucks and stuff). 2. Experience was pretty good, its a quiet residence which means you can study there no problem but the room is quite small. 3. It gets VERY cold, and this is coming from someone from Alberta. The walk from grad house to place riel(closest building that is connected to law) is about 8 minutes and the wind chill can be absolutely brutal. So be prepared for that. 4. I don't have experience with transferring but I have understood that other law schools are a lot less friendly in terms of community and notes sharing and all that. Usask students are known for being fun. But i think that if you're a generally sociable person as most in law are, you wont have an issue making friends at your new school if you transferred.
  11. Just thought i would let everyone know that i have officially been rejected from the u of a, so I will be returning to usask in september.
  12. I absolutely understand that and I do believe my reason for transfer is compelling. As of now I am fully prepared to return to Usask and expect that is what I will be doing. But if I get in, that would be great. I don’t think there’s a great understanding in general(here or possibly anywhere outside of the admissions committee) how the transfer process works and how competitive it really is. I do appreciate the insight though, and am hoping for the best.
  13. The minimum average you need to apply is a 65% or 2.0 average. If by "need" you mean B+ and up is the competitive average, I would guess that is quite unlikely. When I talked to the admissions officer in November, she said that there are 10-15 spots available every year and 25-30 applicants. And to be honest i would guess that her numbers for applicants are inflated. so more likely you get 20-25 applicants for 10-15 spots, worst case thats 40% odds. i find it difficult to believe that 4/10 of the people who applied had a B+ or better average, considering that is a small percentage of law students across canada. Also, the admissions officer didnt say this, but my understanding was that reason for return was also big in their acceptance, so im not sure how they would be able to balance that if they needed a B+ minimum.
  14. I’ve heard second week of June for the earliest date of offers. I had 2 C’s and 3 C+’s which is far from great but keep in mind that sask curves at a C+/B-
  15. I got into sask for the 2017-2018 cycle and i was informed of the waitlist at the end of may last year, I was accepted by mid-june. So this is incorrect.
