  1. So I accidentally wrote that my degree was awarded in April 2016 , when the correct date is going to be June 2020. I contacted both the faculty of law and student connect about this and they told me that it could be fixed if i just submitted a request for it through their contact form. it's been over two weeks since that and they haven't answered me . Is there anything that I can do about this ?
  2. I have my heart set on the U of A but I’d like to apply to other schools as a safety net . I’m not sure it’s worth it to apply to schools in Ontario as I would prefer to stay in Alberta or BC. MY LSAT isn’t great so I’m afraid of not applying to enough schools . LSAT 157 , GPA 3.95. I’m thinking of applying to the UofA , UofC , Tru , UBC , UVic , Saskatchewan and Manitoba . Is that a good number to be applying to ?
  3. GPA : 3.95/4 LSAT : 157 ( only writing) I don't really have extracurricular activities , but I am part of an honors program and have participated in a departmental committee. I've also received a few awards specific to my degree.

  5. I'd like to apply for almost every law school in Canada since I don't want to take the chance of not being accepted in the few schools that I would prefer. However , just looking at the list and the requirements for each , I'm not sure that that would be feasible. I'm especially concerned with asking for references. Most of my classes have been in a very small department and there are only 4 , maybe 5 professors that know me well enough for a reference . I'm afraid of asking for multiple letters from one person ,especially since it seems that the deadline is November 1. Would it be appropriate to ask the same professors for multiple reference letters? Also , for schools that handle application through OLSAs , do they use the same reference letters , or are they for each individual school ?
  6. Should I mention in my personal statement that this will be my second application ? Also , I'm taking a 6-credit full year course this year and I'm unsure as to how it will look in my transcript . It's a thesis course so don't think any mark will be given for the Fall semester . Has anyone had anything like that in their transcripts before ?
  7. I was waitlisted in April and received the email later in the summer saying that I was still on the waitlist . I understand today is the last day they can respond . Beartracks still says decision pending and I haven’t received an email from them . Should I contact admissions ? I understand that I’m more than likely rejected but I’d still like to have closure so I can move on .
  8. So sorry to hear that . I hope that you have better luck with another school or on the next cycle. I also received an email on Friday , but it stated that I was still on the waitlist and that they were not accepting emails or phone calls regarding places on the waitlist.
  9. You might want to take public transport to the university because parking is really limited and expensive. A transit pass is a mandatory fee anyways and the transit centre connects directly to a lot of uni buildings. So I'd say look for a place close to an LRT station. Unfortunately the neighbourhood around the university is very expensive ( though a pretty safe neighbourhood).
  10. Has the Holistic round already happened? Will applicants on the waitlist be considered holistically ?
  11. How do you guys think second year applicants will be ranked on the waitlist ?
  12. I sent them an email about this same topic and they replied right away saying my name was on the waitlist . So it seems that they will respond if you ask .
  13. I'm sure they have rankings , they're just not telling the applicants
  14. On a related note , when you try to email back about the waitlist to [email protected] , does "-lawadmit" show up in instead ? I'm wondering if that's right and if the email will actually go through.
