Most likely because you are not a Sask resident. Your stats are really good! If you boost your lsat by a couple points, I am sure you will have much better luck next year!

    • As someone previously stated, it is hard to find a correlation between when you are put in queue to being accepted. Sometimes people go into queue in November and don't hear until April, or go into queue in January and hear back 1 week later. Keep in mind - there are other applicants and a majority are not on this forum, therefore the 'big picture' is not always being reflected. Good luck in this cycle! 
    • I respect the fact that this advice is based on your particular experience but I want to make clear to anyone who is reading this that there is enough time to diligently answer all the questions. I don't think the exam is supposed to be a massive time crunch. I had enough time to look up the answer for nearly every question on both the barrister and solicitor exam. I also had time to go back and ponder for 5-10 minutes the few questions I still wasn't sure about.  I do agree that diligently answering the questions is important for success--I completely fucked up the practice exams because I was too brief in my answers. Also: I hand-wrote both exams and was a bit anxious about it slowing me down but it turned out to be a non-issue, so I don't think people should be dissuaded from that if they are more comfortable with hand-writing.
    • Following. I did not receive any acknowledgement of funding with my acceptance letter to UBC, but I believe applications for bursaries/scholarships start in June? (someone please correct me if I'm wrong)
    • The hardest courses to get into are the January intensive ones. A lot of students just took what they could get.  But a lot more open up during the Fall term that require applications. They're fairly easy to get accepted into.  You're not going to graduate without having a chance to do the required courses. 2Ls are guaranteed to get in Con Law II, and 3Ls get reserved spots in civ pro, admin, and biz org. Not every student gets their perfect schedule but if you're quick on the trigger when course registration opens, you'll end up with at least one semester being decent. Specializations are meaningless but... What do you expect? They're just an extra line on your resume or firm bio and indicate interest. Its pretty easy to fulfil the necessary courses so it's not a huge time expense.
    • I didn't  I didn't go to U of O but I can tell you that students at many schools complain about the facilities, including U of T when I was there. I don't think that's anything unique to Ottawa. I know lots and lots of U of O grads and I don't see that they complain any more than any other school's students.  As for specializations, I've never seen that they are very beneficial to anyone. When you're being interviewed, we can see from your transcript the courses you took and if you had a particular focus area in your course selection. It doesn't need to be a specialization as the schools describe them.  Getting to take the courses you want is always going to be an imperfect experience. I don't know of any school that offers every single course in every year. I know that I had to make some changes to my plan when I was in law school because of changes to the offerings. One thing that may be more likely to cause that now is that more schools have a greater number of required courses after 1L than they did when I was in law school. I think it varies school to school as to which courses are required to be taken by all but that may be one thing you might want to explore at the schools on your list.
