  1. Posted about the changes to the essay format this year on another post. Maybe it's indicative of changes to come. Seems that GPA and LSAT are still weighted equally, but not sure if the essay is also a part of the total weight (ie: 40/40/20:LSAT/GPA/Essay) Absolutely no clue if this means there will be more weight placed on the personal essay. That being said, GPA and LSAT are still weighted equally
  2. @LegalSmeagle From their website here it seems they're using this conversion table. The new table is very similar to the one you posted, but after calculating my GPA with each table, there was a .08%+ deviation between the two, which could affect rounding for some people.
  3. @uvichopeful90 I also thought it was too good to be true - I have 156 credits and needed to hear I could drop 30 credits from the horse's mouth. This is what the UVic admissions office sent me: They need to post this on their website because this question has been asked a million times, but there's no way to check if it's the same every year other than emailing them. Anyway, hope this puts your mind at ease!
  4. Posted about the new essay format elsewhere, but just in case you haven't stumbled along the changes yet: Seems that the other categories are the same though (1500 words-ish outlining your scenario and likely wouldn't hurt to answer the above questions as well). Maybe the new format means they'll look at the personal statement a bit more this year than in previous years, but who knows! Absolutely no clue if this means there will be more weight placed on the personal essay. That being said, GPA and LSAT are still weighted equally
  5. Seems they changed the essay format from last year - you now have to answer 3 questions in the regular category. From their website: Seems that the other categories are the same though (1500 words-ish outlining your scenario and likely wouldn't hurt to answer the above questions as well). Maybe the new format means they'll look at the personal statement a bit more this year than in previous years, but who knows!
  6. Years/semesters don't matter in the GPA calculation for UBC in the general category - all they care about is your GPA after drops (depending on if you have a 3 years degree or will graduate with a 4 year degree at the end of this academic year). Hope that helps
  7. @iliketodrinkwater We probably won't know for a little while until they have more submissions - I think it changes depending on the applicant pool, but someone correct me if I'm wrong
