  1. Some people wouldn't have an LSAT score or their grades available during the first wave. So that's why you might see people with high/higher stats getting accepted in Jan/Feb. Their apps weren't looked at later, they just weren't complete during the first wave(s). I'm just guessing, but it seems like UVic is really about the numbers. If you're over that magic 910/915 index it seems like they look at your application pretty quickly. Once it gets to below the auto-admit (I don't think we're there yet?) I can't really guess how it would work.
  2. Not trying to be unhelpful, but best course of action would just be to email UVic. There's a general law admissions email in your offer letter. In my experience they were extremely friendly and happy to answer any questions. I wouldn't hesitate to reach out there for an answer you can count on rather than relying on someone on here that may or may not actually know.
  3. You can absolutely improve your LSAT more than a few points! I don't know how much you prepped for your first one though so it's hard to say how much you could improve given more studying. What everyone is saying about logic games is 100% true though. I used to be lucky to get half the questions in LG correct, and when I wrote my second LSAT LG was my strongest section with only one question missed. 7sage's videos for LG helped me a lot and would definitely be worth it for you to check out. Don't give up just because the LSAT didn't go your way one time. Many, many people take it more than once.
  4. I'm not sure about U of A, but U of C you have a small chance depending on how your softs are (personal statement, ECs, work experience, etc.). Honestly though if you got 156 on the LSAT with zero prep, just put in some prep, write it again, score over 160 and you'll have a very good chance. It's unfortunate that it's too late to do that for this cycle, but there's always next year. Best of luck and hopefully you snag a spot this cycle anyways!
  5. No problem! I know I found that post helpful so I wanted to share haha. I'm also 99% sure I'm putting down my deposit to UVic. Just waiting to check it out in person at the end of the month. So maybe see yah in September!
  6. @PlatoandSocrates Found it:
  7. I really forget where on this forum I saw it, but someone from UVic said that that was changed so that anyone who wants to participate in coop, can. Someone else can probably better confirm than me, but I was under the impression that if you want coop, you got it. Of course, actually landing a position is up to you.
  8. Also curious to know how coop might impact your relationships with your classmates. As far as the timeframe goes, on the handbook here (page 3) it does show an option (Option 1) where you can be done in the normal amount of time with two coop terms. I have also heard other places on this forum that people do coop for first year and do the summer coop term and then drop out of coop to do OCIs in second year... so it is possible (I think).
  9. You'd have to also take into account even mild splitters here. People with one of either GPA/LSAT lower and one higher. So it could be true that someone with a low GPA got in (and is pulling down the GPA median), but perhaps they have an amazing LSAT. Your odds do go down when both of your stats are lower than the median, but it's definitely not impossible. You might just be in for a bit more of a wait. Best of luck!
  10. If you're really passionate about what you're studying and you like the tattoo, why not? There's always going to be someone who thinks any tattoo is lame and others who will think the same one is cool. It's your body, and as long as you like it, do what you want!
  11. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but if your offer is not conditional it shouldn't matter. If they did provide conditions it might be a different story.
  12. I agree that it makes more sense for the chart to be post-drops since the drops are included in their GPA calculation. My GPA is similar to yours (with drops 3.59) and I got in early January with my November LSAT of 167. I think aiming for 90th percentile or more would give you a good shot.
  13. Based on previous years acceptance threads and your self calculated index being correct, yes. You definitely have a shot. Below auto-admit it's a bit more of a grey area. It probably comes down to your personal statement, ECs, etc. But I'm just speculating based on information available on this forum from past years. I also read somewhere that they sort files by the LSAT score, so unfortunately with that being the lower part of your application you might not be assessed as quickly. Hopefully you crushed the Jan LSAT though and can bump up your index a bit so you have some more certainty.
  14. Also got the email today. Very excited! L2: 3.66 (as per Calgary GPA conversion chart) LSAT: 167 Good luck everyone!
