Rejected from UofC 2019

Recommended Posts

I checked and didn't see one so I hope this wasn't posted already.

L2: 3.77

LSAT: 160

Was probably my LORs that did me in; didn't have any from professors, only work and volunteer references. Not many ECs either, and I worded something pretty poorly in my PS, I think.

Sorry to hear that.

But you got into UofA, right?

Now your decision is much easier. :)

Rejected today. L2 GPA 3.67, LSAT 159. Decent ECs and Good Reference Letters. Research and working full time for a year and a half after undergrad. 

Thought I would have at least made the waitlist.

So sorry to hear, your application sounds great! When did you go green circle? And were you accepted at UAlberta (if you applied)?

Just got the email. 

LSATs: 152 (June), 158 (Nov)

cGPA: 3.14/4.3

L2: ~3.7 or 3.8. Can’t remember exactly

Worked all through undergrad and volunteered for my last 3 years (doing research for my university). 

Also, on another note: do they still do that thing where they send printed copies of rejection letters? Just curious if I get to read the rejection twice or if once was good enough for them.

Rejected last week. 

GPA: 3.04

LSAT (155,165) 

I made the mistake of focussing only on academics in university, never joined any club or did any ECs until the last 6 months before applications were due.  I just stayed at home and played video games for the last 3.5 years. Thankfully have been accepted to U of A law school in Edmonton.

The 3.04 was not a typo? If you don't mind me asking, besides the 165 LSAT what else did you have going for you on your application to get accepted into UofA and not UofC? I'm only asking because I constantly worry about my academics, and not so much as my ECs as I try and stay on top of those as much as possible.

U of A is a straight numbers school. They only take L2 Years gpa, of which mine is 3.58. My CGPA is 3.04.

Combined with my lsat score it was enough to get in when plugged in to their asmisssions index formula.

Just rejected today. CGPA: 2.68 / L2: 2.75 (WES) / LSAT: 168 (Nov). Mature applicant with a master’s degree.

 

U of C was my first choice, since I am living here. So sad. I should have focused more on why I got low grades. :(

Awesome! Thanks a ton for the insight, UofC and UofA are the two I'm looking to get into the most, with more of a focus on UofC, good to know how each of the schools select their candidates.

    • For those of you who have written the bar, 1) Did you always find the answers in the materials? I've done some practice tests and find it hard to always find the answer in the materials - i'm tempted to just guess based on my own knowledge - is this something you did?  2) Did you use OLE's indices? the detailed table of contents? whats the best way to find answers fast?  
    • Hey,  I'm moving from BC. I found a place through Kijiji. I had just been scanning the ads regularly. I was going to rent an extra month in July just to secure a place but ended up finding one that started mid August. So my suggestion is keep an eye out there. Also avoid Marda. They were awful and rude when I spoke with them.  As for course enrollment I believe we dont have to first year. I'm under the impression we get registered by the school. I could be wrong but when I was reading the handbook for the MSW/JD program that's what I got from it. I know you can check your uwinsite and at the top where it says applicant click it should drop down and there should be a student option if your account is activated. Mine is not yet. Not sure if others are.  We will also be receiving a welcome package in the beginning of August through mail with more info I believe. 
    • Just to dispel this myth, it isn't really true. Certain fields of law and practices, absolutely. But you can definitely work in Montreal being an Anglo with limited French.
    • Depends on the prof and time of year. Some profs are more helpful than others and some times of year they are busier than others. Some of them don't set rigid office hours but are easily available by appointment. During midterms/exams, office hours will invariably be busier than usual, but still easy to get in to. I find that the best way to have a productive conversation during office hours is to ensure I have compiled clear, narrow questions. It facilitates much more directed conversations and professors tend to be happier to help students who appear to be making efforts to learn rather than simply coming to them asking to be taught the entire course material. For example, I would not go to office hours simply asking for them to explain a topic. I would read about the topic, develop questions I had about it and go to them for clarification/discussion on specific issues I had.
