  1. I'd say you probably will. I can't really see how this year is so much more competitive that it pushes you out of acceptance range. Your call though, I'm just a dude on the internet.
  2. I believe around 35ish/180ish applicants are admitted holistically every year. If I recall correctly, they begin the holistic applicant round after the regular applicant round. In the past, it was around early April that holistic admits began (from what I gather from the previous 'Accepted 2020' thread), but it may be later this year because the application deadline has been moved from Nov2020 to Dec2020.
  3. I might have gotten a 166 if logic games didn’t short-circuit my brain and unearth my Neanderthal ancestry.
  4. I asked the same question to Student Connect and got the same answer. You’re to upload the unofficial transcript for the requirement asking for updated Fall grades.
  5. From the ualberta admissions page: Applicants of outstanding academic ability without a degree, who have completed between 60 - 89 credits or the equivalent of a full program of study for credit toward a degree, may be admitted. Applicants must present a 3.7 minimum GPA on the 4.0 scale and score in the 90th percentile on the LSAT in order to be considered for admission. Offers of admission to two-year applicants are conditional upon successful completion of enrolled credits. (under "Admissions Process") 90th percentile is I think a 165 on the LSAT. 3rd year applicants are treated no differently than 4th year applicants. Unless you have a reason to rush through school, just enjoy your undergrad homie. Law school won't be going anywhere.
  6. This is an excellent question. I recommend emailing the law recruiter for an answer. You can find her email on the JD Admissions page: https://www.ualberta.ca/law/programs/jd/admissions/index.html
  7. From ualberta law's admissions page: Courses that are transferable to the U of A, completed as a "special student" or "unclassified student", will be used in the admission GPA, so long as they are not introductory level courses (1XX level, or transferable to the University of Alberta as 1XX level). (Under "Admissions Process") Also: https://www.ualberta.ca/covid-19/students/fall-2020/how-will-my-winter-grades-impact-admission-to-u-of-a.html If you're confused by that link, read through this thread:
  8. The last accepted score for 2021 is the January 2021 LSAT.
  9. Assuming that this application cycle is more-or-less the same as last year (which isn't a guarantee given coronavirus), you have a good shot. Read the linked thread for some useful info.
  10. I was dead-set on becoming a psychiatrist until I received my 12th grade biology grade, after which the desire mysteriously disappeared.
  11. It's less clear what the procedure is with 6-credit courses. I highly recommend emailing the law recruiter, whose email you can find on the JD admissions page. And if you desire (but, for privacy reasons, you shouldn't feel compelled to), you can share with us what the response is.
  12. It's apparently December 1 this year. See under 'Application Deadlines'. https://www.ualberta.ca/law/programs/jd/admissions/index.html
  13. https://www.ualberta.ca/law/programs/jd/admissions/index.html On the right side of the page, scroll down to "Frequently Asked Questions" and click, read the second question on page 2 of the google doc.
