  1. Thank you. Yes, I figured since those people were probably 'automatic acceptances' is why. I'm not sure if I did call what to say. I don't know think saying "Hi, I applied but was accepted in another school so can you just tell me if I'm wait listed or getting into yours or not?" would be acceptable, haha.
  2. Hello, Please let me know if there's a thread I couldn't find that already addresses this question. If so, I apologize in advance. I've been accepted to a school (and put the deposit to save my seat) and am very, very happy about that. That being said, UBC is a top choice but I'm still in "File Complete-Awaiting Evaluation". I believe I'm 75% on UBC's percentage scale´╗┐, so with my 163 LSAT, an index of 89.05. Don't misunderstand me, I know my shot is very, very, very low. I just saw other threads where people called and were told they were accepted. So I wasn't sure if there was a way to know if I am being wait listed/rejected or if I'm being silly. I also really don't want to irk the UBC office as I'm sure they are quite busy (and probably get these calls a lot). Thank you!
  3. Thank you! I applied pretty early but didn't realize some of my items didn't make it in until early January. Also a November LSAT Taker
  4. Accepted this afternoon (February 8)!!! CGPA 3.1 L2 3.5 LSAT 163
  5. I was referring to the January LSAT score, so that's really good to know! A little disheartening because I was using that in my mental gymnastics as to why I haven't been referred to admissions yet, haha.
  6. Nope. Still sitting at Referred for Review. I imagine it will be this way until sometime after Feb 15.
  7. Waitlisted today via email- OLSAS CGPA 3.1, L2 3.7 /4.0 (I believe?) LSAT 163 The email was very politely worded which was nice. I was actually expecting a full rejection (still do) so this is a very pleasant surprise.
  8. My GPA isn't the best (3.1 by the OLSAS, but higher depending on how other schools calculate). Lsat 163. I have no idea if my ps is strong, I mean, I think it is, haha.
  9. You are right about that. I definitely need to learn to chill, haha.
  10. Thanks, that does help a bit. I didn't expect to be an early acceptance but I thought I'd hear something by now (from anyone!). What's a passive review/acceptance?
  11. Honestly, I'm not sure. I would think that Referred to Admissions would be closer to knowing, but people have said different things. I wanted to update for anyone my position who is checking everyday so that they know end of February could be a realistic time. But it's speculation.
  12. Update for anyone who is still following this. I emailed to make sure my files were received as I'm still sitting at Referred for Review and my To Do says "Initiated" on everything. I got an answer, which is the good news. So the file is complete but the email says I will get an update end of February. Not by the end of February, but AT the end. That late in the game is making me think it isn't good news
  13. Hey there Advice might differ on here depending on the person's experience, but here's mine: Before you worry about anything, take a diagnostic ASAP (a timed practice test. It's important you time it. Get the "official" tests). This will let you know your starting point. I don't know your school schedule, but most semesters end April-May. If so, you can have from May until Sep or Nov to write the LSAT and still apply for 2020. November is fine. Obviously it would be better if you can devote your time to studying, so taking the long route of going for 2021 might yield better results, but it is still possible to do it for 2020. So that's 4-6 months of FULL time studying of the LSAT. Like live, breath, and eat it. I say full time because I would suggest doing light studying from now until the end of your semester. Don't stress yourself out because you obviously need to do well in school for that GPA. Pick up one of the many terrific books recommended on here and maybe read a chapter once a week if you can. Overall, in my opinion you can apply in 2020 if you are the type of person who is good at juggling and managing these things. That being said, focusing on school and getting a great GPA, then doing full time studying for the 2020 LSAT will probably get you better results. Hope that helps! There's also a bar on the top right where you can search a lot of these questions so you can get a diverse viewpoint.
  14. Previous posts have said that Referred for Review= they are adding your info into the system and Referred for Admissions= they're looking at it. So the bright side, it wouldn't make sense to put you back in "Review" . Some people have been told it's just an issue with their new system.
  15. Strange indeed. Maybe it's just a system thing?
