  1. Accepted yesterday CGPA 3.83/4, 84.1% after drops self calculated LSAT 166
  2. What are your favourite things to do there? And do you mostly need a car to access them?
  3. Reviving this old thread. In terms of nature, does UBC win easily? Just thinking that both have beaches, UBC has bigger and closer mountains, but UVic has surfing and year round golf. Any thoughts?
  4. Hi everyone, I was happy to receive an acceptance with a 166 LSAT. I only took the LSAT once and I think I can get a higher score if I retake in January. Do you think that UVic might reconsider me for an entrance scholarship based on a January rewrite even after acceptance? I've contacted them but the deadline for LSAT registration is tonight. Thanks!
  5. Just got the call! GPA 3.83/4 166 LSAT
  6. And if we don't want these things are you saying we should go elsewhere? Vics still a good school and it seems to not be a bad thing to learn how leftists view the law, even if one is not a leftist (I can see how this would distract from learning more "useful" real world topics though)
  7. Do they update the applicants GPA on the website or is contacting them the only way to find out?
  8. You're right, looks like the oxford seminars is way off now. And sorry the post wasn't too focused I was just looking for some general discussion about prices, since schools like UVic are still about half of schools like queens. I hadn't looked at things this way, it certainly makes queens/western seem more viable. I would never want to live in Toronto so if I went to queens/western I would try to get a job in Ottawa near my family. As for the small town nature thing, I likely won't get to visit Victoria due to the pandemic, so I am willing to take your word on this. I guess my comparison point would be London or Kingston. In my head, Victoria is nice hikes 30 mins away, amazing surfing opportunities, a beach to chill at nearby, some half decent ski hills (I'm used to the smallest hills you can imagine) and year round golf. UBC on the other hand has the best mountains in the world nearby, although I could foresee that the hour+ long drive to get there (and I don't have a car) could be a bit of a damper.
  9. Hi guys, Applying to law schools right now, and couldn't help but notice incredible price disparities. For example UofT is over 30k per year, queens/western is around 20, and Ottawa/Uvic and UBC are around 10. I would much rather go to Western than Ottawa, but can double tuition be justified? 30k in total is a lot of money, and I definitely would never take a big law job in Toronto to make up for it. For context, I have LSAT 166 and GPA 3.83/4, and am still trying to figure out where to apply. Am leaning towards UVic for the price, prestige, and location (I like smaller towns/cities and lots of nature) but staying at home in Ontario would have its upsides as well. Thanks!
