  1. Accepted this morning! L2: 3.91 (self-calculated) LSAT: 156 (one write) I am 100% accepting! Can't wait to get this journey started!
  2. Based on the information I found in certain (admittedly dated) threads I thought it meant all semesters in which one had classes in any given academic year. I cannot say with 100% certainty that this is the case though so if it concerns you it might be best to email admissions for clarification.
  3. Just wanted to say thank you for posting this! I had no idea that was visible on LSAC.org. It definitely put my mind at ease a bit being able to see that the report was sent given that I wrote in January and had a heck of a time navigating the purchasing aspect of the registration back in November.
  4. That's great to hear, thanks! And congratulations!
  5. Do you remember what your exact GPA was by chance? I only ask because my index number changes slightly depending on how my MA GPA will be calculated. Either way, this is really reassuring, thank you!
  6. Yeah, thanks. I hadn't realized that at the time, however, thanks to @GrumpyMountie and others I realize now that MA courses will be counted. My L2 including MA courses is somewhere between 3.91-3.96 (I'm still a bit unsure of GPA conversions but the number will be somewhere in that area).
  7. Yeah I spoke to a gentlemen at the Law Centre front desk and he said a January LSAT delays the application review, but that's it. Also, I agree I might not be getting an email in the next few weeks unfortunately, but I'm hoping that sometime in March or early April I am lucky enough to hear back.
  8. Thanks for the input, my fingers are crossed that this is true!
  9. Yes! However, for example, an A is 11/12 at my graduate school. So I'm not sure if I take the A as a 4.0 or the 11 as (potentially) a 3.9 (info regarding this is also a bit contradictory). I also don't know if I should focus on converting individual letter grades or the cumulative GPA. It seems like a relatively minute difference in the end but I just wanted to calculate my index as accurately as possible!
  10. Thank you for following up! I think what confused me about the 60 units part is the term "session", but from what I gather that means the Winter and Fall terms of a given academic year. Luckily it wouldn't affect my GPA much regardless, so I'm not too worried about that. Converting this GPA is turning out to be a serious pain, more so than it really needs to be! I have found some information online but it's a bit contradictory so I think I'll stop by either the Registrar or Law Centre and see if someone can't answer the question re: GPA conversion for me quickly.
  11. Thanks for such a thorough answer. I guess now I just have to figure out 1) how far into my undergrad courses they'll go back (considering I only had 3 courses in Fall 2017 and 3 in Winter 2018 of my MA) and 2) how to properly convert the 12.0 scale to 4.0. It will keep me busy as I await news I guess. I'm glad you've found institutions that weigh the importance of grades differently!
  12. Thanks for the reply. For some reason I have never noticed this mentioned on the site and still struggled to find it. I did just find it in a link to a document after some digging though. Not sure how this eluded me or why I thought Grad GPA wasn't considered; perhaps I saw it but didn't truly read it until now. What do you mean by it inflates the significance? Not trying to challenge you on it, genuinely curious. I'm just very new to both this forum and the law school admission process!
  13. Can someone please explain this further re: graduate GPA? I have a MA degree but was under the assumption that only undergraduate GPA was calculated because not everyone has a MA degree, so it cannot be compared across the board for everyone. How do you know this to be the case?
  14. Hi all, I took the LSAT on January 13 (first and only write). The scores were not released until February 6, so I know the processing of my application for 2020 admission was delayed as a result. I scored a 156 and my L2 is 3.92857 (self calculation via official transcripts). I have completed my undergrad and I hold a Master's degree which was conferred long before the application process (MA courses were NOT used in L2 calculation). I'm wondering how much my chances are hurt by the fact my LSAT scores were received by ualberta so late. I know dozens of people have received offers already (and congrats to you all!) but I have also seen a few people with similar numbers to mine being given offers. I know I should have a chance, but my LSAT was not overly competitive and was received late. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
