GUYS. I couldn’t be happier, and shocked, to be posting this.... but I was accepted today!

cGPA with drops: 84.5 

LSAT: 161

Index: 91.2

 

(sorry if admin believes this is extraneous) but I called admissions mid-February and was told I was very very high on the waitlist and would hear before end of March. She mentioned they had read my personal statement, so perhaps they aren’t all numbers. Either way, so so happy! Accepted already, the deadline to accept was April 2.

SO exciting!!! Congrats!! Did you have ‘special circumstances’/related documentation in your PS or straight regular category? Really happy for you, well done.

Just regular category! No other documentation. My PS talks about a lot of the inequity in my life, and I’ve worked on a ton of feminist causes so my PS was tailored to my interest in their feminist law program. So I think that was a huge factor :)

So we are already at 91.2 index acceptances? Is that strange relative to previous years? It seems like UBC weights the LSAT a heck of a lot more than GPA.

This is definitely true, as someone with a lower LSAT and a higher than average GPA (index 91.34) I have yet to hear anything. Maybe I have a shot off the waitlist this year!

Congratulations to everyone who has received an offer! 🎊🎉🏆

Looking for advice: Received an offer from UVic last week but really wanting to attend UBC, who I have yet to hear back from. My first time writing the LSAT was in January however, so I understand how this would push back the evaluation of my file. Should I contact UBC and ask for a timeline, or just leave it until closer to my UVic acceptance deadline?

Thanks in advance!!

Contact UBC, there is no harm in it and they will give you honest advice. It seems like you have a pretty competitive GPA and LSAT score as well so I'd say your chances are pretty good, but also letting them know that you have other offers may push them to process your application sooner. (no basis for that, but don't see why that couldn't happen)

This might be because they order the files for review with LSAT scores. Highest LSAT first and goes from there.

Got this from admissions.

Congrats to everyone who's in.

    • @student0033 lol i noticed u liked my comment, i hope u realize i was being sarcastic...  
    • Certificate candidate. Nothing yet. 3.875/4.3
    • All my numbers are lower than yours and I'm in at Ryerson. My softs and past experience is a lot more diverse though, a lot of student leadership projects, managed a 6 figure budget from the provost of my university as an undergrad planning events, more vast experience in fine arts and in the curatorial field, had my own small business on the side, went full circle and mentored Indigenous youth through this business program that i did in high school, you get the picture. From what Ive read about applying to law school is they want future leaders who come from diverse backgrounds and life experience that they can contribute their unique lens into discussions. You can bypass all this by having good numbers but if you don't and are relying on your softs, i think you need to be showing actual passion and leadership for things that can be outside of law. Having a part time job during your undergrad isn't impressive (no offence) but is just kind of expected. If you have the money to be applying to every law school in the country i think you'd be better off just improving your LSAT and cracking 160. 
    • Hi I’m an anglophone student and I was accepted! I passed the tfi exam in January but I was called to complete a written exam given by udem. I was accepted 2 weeks ago! So I don’t think they are waiting on the tfi to accept or refuse candidates 
    • While no one likes salary cuts, I think BLG and NRF are taking the high road by rolling back everyone’s pay rather than laying off staff and junior associates in what will be a brutal employment market.  The other big players will need to take action soon.  Partner distribution cuts will be deep, but won’t be enough to weather this storm past a month or two.  Law firm management will want to stick to the line that they are going to keep everyone whole, but the economics of that just don’t make sense.  Partner ranks will get unsettled if they are bearing it all. Management is incompetent if they think there is not going to be a serious drop in revenue over the next 6 weeks at least, but in reality, for the balance of the year.  Time to reset, even if just temporarily.
