  1. I emailed a few days ago, and i think the ranking has just become available!
  2. I emailed the admission office just few days ago and was told the same!
  3. Thank you very much for your reply! I am trying not to get my hopes too high, but i guess i can't help hoping... haha
  4. Thank you very much for sharing this! I also found out that someone who was #95 on the waitlist in May got an offer in late August (2017 admission). I was wondering whether this is usual or very rare..?
  5. Got an email saying I was waitlisted as of April 23rd too! Not too sure about my index score ( maybe 91.00; my gpa is 3.93/4.0 but with drops 4.0 and my lsat was 158 ) Does anyone have an idea of how many people generally get accepted off of the waitlist? Until even in the later months..? Also, does UBC take into consideration a Honours degree more favorably when calculating the GPA? Thank you very much and good luck everyone!
  6. Hi, I am interested in applying for the JD program at UBC Allard Law school this year. I am an applicant with a four-year undergraduate degree. In fact, my bachelor's degree is from McGill University, which does not have an A+. In this case, could anybody verify how to calculate my CGPA that will be used for the admission? My CGPA is 3.93/4.00, but without the lowest 12 credits, I have all A's, except for one A-. I have tried the CGPA calculator in this forum, which gave me a 85%, and contacted ubc admission as well, which just told me to use the scale found on this website (https://students.arts.ubc.ca/advising/academic-performance/gpa-equivalency/), but I am still unclear and uncertain about my calculation of CGPA.. Since it is 3.93 (higher if lowest 12 credits not counted) is out of 4.00, does it get converted to 4.25 ( i.e. 3.93/4.00*4.33) on the 4.33 scale? I'm so lost.. any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you very much!
  7. Hi everyone! I've started considering law school only after finishing my undergraduate, which was three months ago. It just occurred to me that it would be more interesting and rewarding to learn and study law and maybe work for human rights later, rather than just continue doing what I studied for my undergrad. So, honestly, although I am very seriously thinking about going to law school, I don't think I am ready or able to write a good, compelling personal statement at the moment yet (think I will need some more time to actually ponder upon why I want to study law and do it at McGill..) and it's already almost the end of September.. I understand that a personal statement is a very important factor in admissions for McGill Law.. Plus, I've heard from somewhere that I need to send along my personal statement to professors when I ask them for references.. is this true? if so, when should I contact my professors to request if they can write letters of recommendations for me? like 5 weeks before the deadline? I went to McGill, have a CGPA of 3.93/4.00 and did honours. I am not bilingual at all, so to work on my french, I have been taking some intermediate level french classes since June. Other than these, I really don't have anything that would make me stand out from other applicants.. But should I work really really hard on my personal statement and still apply? Thank you and good luck with your application everyone!
