  1. Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone had any advice to offer on my situation. I will be attending law school in the fall and applied to both Canadian and US schools. Honestly, I thought the American schools were kind of a long shot and I was pretty much settled on attending UofT. However, I recently ended up getting into NYU (still waiting on some other US schools) and working in NY has always been a dream of mine. The thing is that I know I'd want to come back to Canada at some point to settle down. Does anyone know approximately what the process looks like to become accredited in Canada after attending a US school? If it's too complex and time-consuming, I'd rather go to UofT and still have a potential opportunity to work in NY with the option to come back to Canada. And, of course, save, a TON of money staying in Canada. I would really appreciate any thoughts on this!! It's such a big decision and I'm having a hard time making it -- thank in advance!
  2. Ok!! I just mentioned it specifically for UofT because they wouldn't look at 4th year grades, but if that's not your top choice then you should be fine! Best of luck
  3. Hi! Just a question -- if you're planning on applying in your 4th year, wouldn't your B3 and cGPA be the same number? Not sure if I'm missing something
  4. I'm kind of in the same situation! Lived in Vancouver for my whole life but I think I'm definitely ready for a change of pace, so will most likely be heading to UofT - good luck with your decision
  5. I would second all of this! I'm an undergrad at UBC right now (may or not be in Sauder... LOL) and the campus is an absolutely beautiful place. My friends and I would head down to Wreck Beach quite frequently, even in the colder months. The Kits neighbourhood is also super close by and has another great beach, lots of amazing restaurants, and cute boutiques. One of my favourite summer traditions is biking the seawall, there's absolutely nothing better to destress after a tough semester. Although the construction is certainly annoying, the campus itself is beautiful and spread out so once you're there it's not too annoying. The views from Allard are beautiful and from most buildings, honestly. I love the diversity and natural beauty of the UBC campus! The fact that you can so easily go from class to the Rose Garden and overlook the mountains/ocean is something I wish I took more advantage of - there are so many great gardens and natural spaces on campus. I definitely know a couple of people who went to Allard and then went on to work in Toronto, but I don't know about the other way around. It's a great school and Vancouver is a beautiful city - I can't be too helpful about the actual law school part, but if you have any questions about the city/campus I'd be happy to answer.
  6. ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ Give Wave ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ Best of luck to everyone still waiting!!
  7. I'M IN!! So incredibly excited - I got the call around 12:15 PST. CGPA: 3.80, B3: 3.79 (I'm in 4th year so it's the same, but I think they don't include summer grades so this is my GPA without those) LSAT: 168 - Aug, 172 - Nov (not sure if they would have had my Nov score in time for the decision!) I also wrote the optional essay. CONGRATS everyone!! Good luck to everyone still waiting!
  8. Hi!! Congratulations everyone I'm just wondering if you all got calls in the morning or if UofT is still calling people into the afternoon? Thanks
  9. Yes! It took me almost 3 weeks to receive it, and even then I emailed them and they sent it right away. Don't worry if you haven't received it yet!
  10. Just got the email - super excited!! UBC student GPA: 88.99% after drops LSAT: 168 - Aug, 172 - Nov (not sure if they would have had my Nov score in time for the decision!) Congratulations everyone! EDIT: GPA was confirmed by Allard through email.
  11. I think the timing might be a bit different for updating the status depending on if you're a UBC student or not? My school tracking number shows my UBC student number and I've had File Complete - Awaiting Evaluation since I was able to login to my account - those 2 statuses have always been there for me. Fingers crossed we start hearing soon!!
