I called last week, they are waiting for first round acceptances. They said second round will be released sometime around the 14th of April.

by "first round acceptances" do you mean that there were acceptances made after the 1st of April? or did the people who received offers before April have an extension to respond?

The admission office did not specify if offers were given after April 1st or if extensions were being granted (this wasn't what my original call was about). Through conversation, the admin office did indicate that there was a bit of a delay due to OLSAS being a new system (OLSAS was working on a glitch that was preventing applicants from firm accepting offers, so this might explain the delay) and that they were waiting on offers to be accepted before releasing next offers.

    • I received a B in a Business Law class in my third year as a result of an abnormally high curve for the class. I believe the average was 86-87%, which normally translates to about an A-. Is it worth explaining in my application?
    • Hi, I am an American whose Canadian fiance received an excellent physician offer to Ottawa Hospital. I am applying to both Canadian and U.S. schools and learned about the joint American-Canadian JD...However, I am concerned for the same reasons that you illustrated.  I would like to hear about your experience thus far. Thank you. 
    • Hi everyone - very sorry for my lack of replies here. I set this thread to notify me when something is posted and I think that setting got lost in the forum upgrade.  I’ll endevour to answer stuff now, even though it may be later than you all probably wanted it to be.  I got the percent to letter mappings from the UBC website, and at the time it is my recollection that I translated everything correctly. I’m not in a position to check right now, but I will review the numbers I’m using and confirm that they coincide with what has been published by the school.  Bear in mind that “relied upon” is too strong a word to describe what I would say you can do with the numbers you get from the calculator. They’re an estimate (hopefully a reasonably close one) but nothing more. Your UBC-calculated grades may differ by a little or a lot, depending on your personal circumstances. My hope is that they’ll differ only a little a majority of the time.  I intend to fix this problem because it’s obvioisly causing some issues. When I’ve made the change I’ll update you all.
