Does anyone know if UBC sends out a snail mail offer package or if everything is electronic?

I believe its all electronic, there was nothing in the online admission package that said anything about a hard copy.

It was around the beginning of October I believe! I was on hold since Oct 12 waiting for my December LSAT.

Congrats! Wondering when you applied as I probably have a similar index score.

I applied around mid-October. The LSAT score is from September. Good luck : )

I know that to confirm your spot you need to send the deposit/form, but if I haven't made a decision yet if I am accepting, am I supposed to reply or do anything to indicate this?

Just had my status change to “Offer.” I applied on November 30th, and the December LSAT was the first one I wrote, so I was missing a score until January 2nd.

My cGPA was 86% after drops based on UBC’s grades calculator (I went to UBC for undergrad), and my LSAT score was 163 for an index of 92.0.

Offer came in yesterday!

LSAT: 167

GPA: 86% after drops. I miscalculated and thought it was 80%.

Awaiting UVic's decision. Good luck all!

Just got accepted!!

Index score (self-calculated based on UBC-confirmed GPA): 92.60

Congrats! Sorry, I realize that this may be a dumb question... but how did you get your UBC confirmed GPA? Did you have to call to confirm? Or was it listed on your Applicant Online Status? I didn't get my application in until the day it was due.. so my application is still awaiting evaluation.

Thanks!

I emailed UBC (they won't give out index score but they will give out GPA). I emailed them after I got in, so idk if they'll have ur GPA confirmed before they evaluate ur file. 

I also applied Nov 30th. Good luck!!

    • Noted.  I will definitely consider UNB, although if you saw my transcript you would cringe, there's lots of 50's and 60's on there from a point in my life where I would have been satisfied with a business degree.  So I'm definitely relying on some of the more holistic schools lol.  I'm capable of much better than that but it's going to take some time or luck to "remedy my standing with God and men" as Machiavelli would say.
    • Queens won't take summer courses. Everyone else will. As for which credits they take, it varies a bit by school but your L2 is roughly your last 4 consecutive semesters. But again, it varies.  Also consider applying to UNB, they'll remove 25% of your worst marks if you've graduated. They will also give you bonus points if you are from the Maritimes. 
    • OK thanks for the help.  I'm also thinking about Dalhousie as long as I can keep my grades up, and Sask if I can do a good LSAT as well as applying some other schools on access with a psychiatrist letter due to the fact that I was diagnosed with severe mental illness and this has affected my grades until this past year, where things stabilised abit and I was able to pull off a solid semester and things also going well so far this semester.  I have some good academic references and have a knack for interviews so hopefully things will work out, if not I will try again in another year after getting my cGPA up a bit higher and working some EC's in there.  But no I'm not set on any particular school; from what I've gathered here any law school in Canada is a major blessing.  I hope to someday work as a defense lawyer and mental health advocate in Newfoundland.   Sorry for asking a billion questions, but do you know if L2 usually includes summer semesters/last 20 credits or if it means last 2 years literally?
    • A 3.8 and a 160 would be very respectable. As for ECs I can't think of too many options for you. Just try and represent yourself well in the interviews and have a solid PS. That should give you a good shot at Ryerson. And if those last credits bring your GPA or L2 up enough you may even try applying more broadly (I don't know if you're set on a certian area or not). 
    • Okay thanks. I have a 3.35 for my best 10 courses, with 10 to go before november, so I could possibly get that up to 3.6-3.8, so Ryerson is probably my best chance. What are some good extracurriculars I could do? I've been scoring various shades of 160 on the LSAT which is good. But debate club is closed due to covid and I'm not doing anything right now other than working at fast food and university. I will need something on there. I have a criminal record from a misspent youth so most volunteering is out.
