  1. Thank you very much for your reply and the info! I'm sure others have much more interesting and impressive stories and afraid my story doesn't make any difference. But as you said, I guess I will have to wait patiently until the result comes out:) Thanks again!
  2. Hello all, I'm an international student from South Korea who applied for UBC law. I spent whole life in South Korea except about one year in Vancouver for working holiday, not sure it would help or hurt my application. I have some volunteer and work experience at public interest lawyers groups in Korea(about 1 year in total), 2 years of military service, and I stayed in Vancouver for about one year for working holiday(didn't do fancy jobs or law related jobs). The admission office told me that I was eligible for discretionary category as a mature applicant(27) so I applied under discretionary category. My January LSAT was 164 and It's frustrating that WES converted my A+ on transcript into A and maybe because of that, I got GPA 82.19 (confirmed). So the index would be 91.18. I have two questions about my situation. i) Do you think my experience could stand out compared to others who applied under discretionary category? I'm kinda sure people have more appealing stories than I do. And, if my story is competitive, is it possible for me to get an offer with my index? ii) Can I be considered under regular category as well? If I can, what's the chance realistically? If you have any ideas about it, it would be so much appreciated. Thank you!
  3. Hello all, I'm South Korean, who graduated from one of universities in South Korea. I just got my October LSAT result and I'm wondering what my chances are to get into UBC law or Uvic law(I want to practice in BC if possible) Do you think I should retake LSAT or should just go for it? I want to retake LSAT because the median LSAT score of the accepted in UBC is 166. But, I'm afraid that since UBC is rolling base, my chance to get into UBC could be lower if I resort to January LSAT. Thank you! My LSAT score in October : 161. CGPA without drops: 82.30 CGPA with drops: 87.62 (Not sure about the gpa since I'm international. I calculated it through an app I found in this forum http://lsutil.azurewebsites.net/UBC/GPA) I'm also wondering if it's possible to apply with my October LSAT, take January one, and change to use the January score if it's higher.
