  1. https://drive.google.com/file/u/1/d/0B-u9luOkViBOZE9aNENLN3hRaWxnQmQtM212UEd5SW1GVDBN/view?usp=drive_open Last year there were 182 incoming students. Unless you’re referring to regular admits? Which would make sense because there were 40 holistic admits.
  2. Thankfully I did get in! I actually did start one for this year. However, it is admittedly a mess as I lost interest after realizing they were clearly deviating from the suspected index formula. I now do not have the time to fix/continue with it. Hopefully someone will do it for next year's applicants.
  3. There’s at least 3 upper year students. Also in previous years the total number of seats was around 182-186. So don’t freak out.
  4. I think acceptances may still be trickling out as the Facebook page now has 124 members (with some current students mixed in). Although it could also be from people just finding the page recently. Nevertheless, there is still lots of time! Rejections went out in June for the 2019 cycle.
  5. https://albertapolitics.ca/2021/02/university-of-alberta-faces-more-than-half-of-budgets-brutal-post-secondary-cuts-so-why-does-ucp-have-it-in-for-u-of-a/ According to the linked article, the cuts to the UofA were harsher than the UofC (11 vs 5%). Although an 11% cut does not obviously equate to requiring a 45% tuition increase it is something to keep in mind. Maybe the law faculty were hit specifically by the cuts? I have no idea. I am sure if they were though they would have mentioned it in the letter rather than using university rankings as one of their justifications.
  6. I believe you are looking at the undergraduate degree requirements. If you click the header "admissions process" on this page you will see the February 1st date. https://www.ualberta.ca/law/programs/jd/admissions/index.html#:~:text=Applicants must present a 3.7,successful completion of enrolled credits. So your Sept - Dec 2021 would count towards a September 2022 entry as they would be completed by February 1st 2022. Does that make more sense? Definitely no harm in emailing them too.
  7. As per their website: "The Admission GPA is calculated using the applicant's most recent 60 units/credits (equivalent to 2 years of full time study) in a recognized university degree (undergraduate or graduate), provided those units of course weight are completed by February 1st in the year in which admission is sought. " In other words, you do not need the credits before fall as they will use your fall 2021 grades. However, keep in mind the requirements are higher for two-year applicants. Again as per the site: "Applicants must present a 3.7 minimum GPA on the 4.0 scale and score in the 90th percentile on the LSAT in order to be considered for admission. Offers of admission to two-year applicants are conditional upon successful completion of enrolled credits". Hope that helps!
  8. From reading other threads, there is speculation that in addition to the personal statement they look closer at your transcript during the holistic stage. Which would make sense considering they do not ask for anything outside of the statement. However, it is speculation. Maybe they just look for people with interesting stories to expand away from the typical K-JD applicant. Who knows. I wish they would be more upfront about it though or at least have some guiding questions as to what they would like answered in a statement to ensure some consistency. I did not apply anywhere else but from what I understand a lot of schools ask specific questions for the statement to address and/or require resumes etc. for holistic or "special" admits.
  9. I am so glad I posted that link now after reading this thread haha. I found it on their page here: https://www.ualberta.ca/law/tuition.html
  10. I just found more information about this here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XTfR9iTmUHaQBYd2yzksGpW5zu9jM-SN/view
  11. I honestly just think they are slow to get through the applicants. From another thread there were quite a few people who posted their stats and I am below a lot of them and yet those people have not posted their acceptances. I think they just need to finish reviewing everyone. Also, we really haven't seen big waves like before. Yesterday quite a few people posted but on previous dates it appears to just be one or two at a time. I do not want to get anyone's hopes up too much but the UofA facebook page only has 96 members. I know a lot of people might not know about it or they might not have FB but I would be surprised if the school had accepted close to the usual 180 and only just over half joined the page.
  12. It is may 7th for those accepted yesterday. For anyone else accepted after April 1st the deposit deadline is 30 days from acceptance.
  13. Thanks!! Ah damn. Hopefully you see a change soon! I am unsure if they are at the holistic stage. Keep in mind my L2 is self calculated. I also have an MA degree but I don’t think that makes a difference unless they were at the holistic point.
  14. AAAAH ACCEPTED. No email just an update on Launchpad. I am in shock. I stared at the screen for so long. It felt so surreal. L2: 3.82 Highest LSAT: 158 Good luck to those waiting - go check your portals!
  15. 7 sage is popular if you want an online course. Powerscore Bibles and the LSAT trainer are also popular for self-studying. I suggest you search through this forum as it is asked quite a lot but it really depends on your learning style and budget.
