  1. Haha, it's been days since I've posted so I don't know if anyone has the answer 😅 I didn't see anyone say they got an offer with the first round of acceptances and I'd expect there to be at least one... so maybe not?
  2. I'm deciding between these two schools as well, except I'm from Vancouver! I absolutely love it but I have spent my entire life here, so wondering if Toronto is the right choice for a change (a very expensive change at that). Thanks to everyone who has already contributed their experiences to the thread, super helpful to read through
  3. Got the call this morning! OLSAS GPA: 3.88 LSAT: 173
  4. Did anyone receive a scholarship with their acceptance today or know how UBC typically handles awards? Are they offered in the summer after the class is confirmed?
  5. Got the email about an hour ago! LSAT: 173 GPA: 88.9 (self calculated with drops) Applied first week of Nov, current 4th year student
  6. Does anyone know when entrance scholarship offers are extended?
  7. Notified via email this morning! cGPA: 3.87 LSAT: 173 In queue Nov. 26th
  8. Just got the call! Applied in first week of Nov Self-calculated GPA with drops: 4.08, LSAT: 173 Current 4th year and I did receive an entrance scholarship
  9. Congrats to you both!! I was wondering if either of you would be able to share a bit more information on the scholarship as I know all schools do it differently. Were they able to tell you the exact amount or just a minimum amount for now?
  10. LOL, you didn’t frantically submit OLSAS applications on Oct. 31 and finish other apps throughout the week too, did you?? Nice to know someone else is in the same boat, fingers crossed we hear something soon!
  11. Oh okay, thanks so much! I tried to forget about my applications for a week or two after submitting them but after receiving other portal logins, realized UBC still hadn't reached out. I'll keep an eye on the inbox! That's true, I assumed it was something along those lines as well. Yeah I thought about emailing but hoped someone here had already done it to get a quicker response haha.
  12. I applied to UBC on November 5th and received a confirmation email with instructions on how to send in additional documents, if applicable (I'm a general applicant so this doesn't apply.) I haven't received any other communication from them since then, however - is this normal? From browsing old threads on here, it seems like there should be a portal where I can log in and check the status of my application. Thanks!
  13. Hi all, this is kinda late but I was wondering whether it'd be a bad idea to skip the optional essay. For anyone unfamiliar with the prompts for this year, they are: A meaningful intellectual experience A vision of your future goals How you overcame obstacles to achievement How your identity, background and experiences will contribute to the diversity of the law school (if not already addressed in the Personal Statement) I have a few drafts but I don't really like any of them. I think it's because I don't have much to say for any of the topics and it comes out sounding a bit forced. For #3 for instance, I already touched on a similar idea in my Personal Statement (obstacles to achievement = socioeconomic circumstances). Nothing organically comes to mind for #1, and I'm not set on any particular path after law school. If it makes a difference, my GPA for three years is 3.88 after conversion, and LSAT 173. If the consensus is that optional doesn't really mean optional, I'm sure I can polish it up before tomorrow haha. Thanks in advance for any last minute advice!
