I took the LSAT in December and signed up for the February LSAT thinking that I would definitely need to retake it to have a chance at being accepted into UBC. However, I scored 163 in December, and when I use the index calculator with my cGPA (86.06% after drops), the index works out to 92 on the dot, so I don’t think I need to retake it.

Would UBC delay evaluating my application if I am registered for the February LSAT? I am going to cancel it soon anyway, unless someone believes that I should take it for a better shot at admission.

No they do not put a delay on your file if you have competitive stats. I read on their website that they do, so I called to confirm and he said that even if you are writing the February LSAT, they would not delay your file if you were competitive. And since you're going to be de-registering anyway, it'll show up in their system so you have nothing to worry about! 

92 is auto-admit, so you're in the clear, don't bother re-writing haha. There's already been people admitted in the 91.5+ range.

I would just double check you cGPA calculations. I had some issues with it at first. You don't want to cancel only to find out your index is actually lower than you self-calculated. 

I don't remember exactly, but I think I remember students saying they contacted UBC law admissions and having them confirm their index score. 

Either way, best of luck!

I spoke too soon. I checked the status and it changed to “Offer.” Thank you to those who replied, and good luck to others who have applied :)

    • Hi Last month I decided to register a 6-8 months fulltime certificate diploma program at a private college near my home due to my personal interest. It won't start in late Nov. Now, my question is, should I include this in my academic history? Apparently, I don't have any transcript and I doubt I will have any at the very beginning of the program.     For Ontario law schools, I assume it would be unnecessary because the course won't start before the application deadline(Nov 1st) and I didn't find any relevant information about this on Ontario law schools' pages. However, for some law schools, such as Uof Manitoba and UNB, they ask for full disclosure of academic "you have attended". Not sure if I should include this certificate program into the academic history category.  I don't want to hide anything and I didn't give much thought when I register the course, just purely personal interest and kept me occupied while waiting for the application result.  Now I really don't want to mess up my application for this. Any thoughts? Thanks!
    • it has been suggested more than once here that you can fit in a reception and a dinner on one night. I'm sure OP is just trying to boost his/her chance.
    • Salaries at most big firms seem to have increased to 55,000
    • I know someone who got a 168 working with Tara and she referred me to her directly, however, I've been doing the ultimate 84-hour in class course with the Princeton Review and I find it's helping so far (only half way through). I feel like by the end of it I will be where I want to... or at least I'm hoping so, but progress has been steady.
    • I'm currently taking the ultimate 84-hour course in person and I find that it's really helping. I'm only half way through and I'm grasping concepts quickly, however, I function better in classroom settings with a teacher guiding me so i'm not sure if an online class will be AS effective. Depends on your preferences I guess.
