  1. Just randomly logged into my UCalgary email and turns out I received an academic excellence entrance award on April 12! Check your UCalgary email y’all 😂
  2. Hi, I’m a UAlberta alumni myself! I think that it’s important to note that UAlberta calculates GPA based on your last two years. I’ll link the 2020 admitted student profile for U of A below, but based on that, I would focus on improving your GPA (unless your last two years is higher than your cGPA) rather than retake the LSAT. UCalgary also takes the last two years for GPA and is more holistic than UAlberta, so if you have compelling reasons for a lower GPA you might have a better chance there. Let me know if you have any other questions! https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-u9luOkViBOYVM2bWFMcmJNcUpOZVBZY0lsTVpyOGRIaGFR/view
  3. Hi everyone! I was just curious how many people are still in the ‘File Complete - Awaiting Evaluation’ stage. I’ve been stuck there since Nov 4, 2020. Is there a ‘Under Evaluation’ stage that comes next?
  4. Essentially all you have to do is write the LSAT, and then indicate which LSAT you have taken and/or plan to take on each school’s application (when applications open in the fall). No further action is necessary through the LSAC website once you have written the LSAT and looked at your score. You apply through each school’s respective website, except for Ontario schools which have a consolidated website/portal called OLSAS. It’s important that schools know which LSATs you intend to write, so if you end up rewriting but didn’t indicate it on your application, email your prospective schools so they know to retrieve your score. Schools automatically retrieve your score in the weeks following the release of scores. You can check which schools have requested your score on the LSAC website, as well as on your actual application on each school’s website, which typically has a checklist of everything they’ve received from you. I know it’s confusing, as law admissions in the states relies heavily on LSAC for most of the application process, but all you have to worry about is writing the LSAT and then filling out each school’s application on their website. Let me know if you have any other questions!
  5. Nope, Canadian law schools retrieve them automatically. Cheers!
  6. I’m just an applicant, so I personally have little to no knowledge on the topic, but this brief thread from a member of the UCalgary Indigenous Admissions Sub-Committee was interesting:
  7. Just for a bit of hope, I was in “under review” for 3.5 months before being accepted! I also declined my offer, so hopefully another spot for somebody else!
  8. I had this as well, and I received an offer during their first wave so it should be fine!
  9. Right?! I don’t want to bash my alma mater but all the weirdness with apparently suddenly (and sneakily) using top LSAT score instead of averaging, the acceptance deadline changing, and never replying to my emails etc turned me off of the school quite a bit! Plus the mere thought of never again having to be in the general vicinity of HUB mall or CAB gives me more joy than any law school acceptance ever could 😂
  10. Hi! I’ve received five offers so far, but Calgary was my number one choice and I accepted my offer about a month ago! My choice was based on a combination of personal and professional factors. I did my undergrad at UAlberta and have lived near campus for five years. The thought of ever having to set foot on this campus again made me feel a bit unwell, plus I’m generally just sick of running into people I know every time I leave the house (lol). I wanted to stay in Alberta to be near family, but also wanted a fresh start! I like the Calgary Curriculum, the profs, the legal market there, and the vibe in general. I realize choosing a law school based on ~vibes~ isn’t for everyone, but the amount of correspondence, helpfulness, overall friendliness made me feel like they actually wanted me to go there. I hope to see some of you this fall!
  11. I don’t believe there is a way to delay the deposit without emailing admissions. I haven’t personally done this, but I’ve seen people do it at other schools. I wouldn’t worry about it looking bad, the worst they could say (and probably will say) is no, but they wouldn’t revoke your offer or anything! Best of luck!
  12. Just got rejected! 3.7 cGPA/3.9 B3, 164 LSAT. Best of luck to my pals still waiting/waitlisted!
  13. I believe so, 6 plus the 2 foundations in law block courses: https://law.ucalgary.ca/sites/default/files/teams/2/400-level_coursedescriptions_jan-20-2016.pdf
  14. In terms of registration/sections, I found some 1L info here: https://law.ucalgary.ca/sites/default/files/Registration Docs/1L Registration Package 2020-2021.pdf
  15. Similar to another answer here, I was in the ‘under review’ stage for 3.5 months before being accepted a couple days ago. It’s excruciating to wait, but you have awesome stats! I believe that all they would be able to tell you over the phone is what is already available on the portal. Wishing you the best!
