Accepted (Victoria) 2020

erinl2

As we did last cycle, please keep the Admitted threads clear of extraneous discussion. They will remain more valuable and easier to navigate.

A reminder that Accepted threads are for posting your stats only and for asking brief questions related to the stats someone posts, e.g., asking for L2. These threads are not the place for further discussion, which should be asked via PM or in a new thread. OT posts will be deleted. Thank you!

Just got the call!

LSAT:169

GPA: 3.5 (3.9 L2) on an OLSAS scale. Not sure what it is with drops. 

I really felt like my GPA was going to hold me back, so to get an offer from one of my top choices is really exciting!

Got the call about an hour ago! I am so excited as UVic was my top choice!

GPA: 3.85/4.3- not sure how drops would have been calculated as I have 8 courses left in my degree

LSAT: 171

Was told to that I could expect a scholarship as well which is incredible news that I didn't expect!

I was really shocked to hear from UVic this early as I am still in fourth year and thought that they would wait to see my Fall marks.

I’ll add that I was also called and accepted, the same day as the others here. 

GPA: 3.975 (with drops)

LSAT: 162, 85th percentile

Congrats to everyone - I might not be accepting, a decision I have yet to make since I am afraid of taking on lots of debt (I’m from Winnipeg). 

Good luck to all others!

Congrats!!! Is your cGPA on a 4.33 scale? I have the exact same stats so I'm just wondering.

Just got the call as well. cGPA 4.85/4.33, LSAT 163. 

Personal statement had a few typos, and really nothing special, maybe slightly tailored to uVic (environmental law stuff) EC was alright I think

Congrats!!!!! I think you and I were both chatting earlier this cycle about having to wait until January for UVic to see our Fall marks and luckily we were wrong about that :)) I'm sure it was a very pleasant surprise!

    • Hm, to work 40-50 hours per week it means to work 8-9 hours per day (except weekends). Think that it is pretty easy, the majority of world work with such schedule. However, it is very important that these house would be profitable. As a boss, for me it is very important aspect. I always try to improve our profit and to do work in our company more pleasant. That's why I use employee evaluation template excel . It helps me to review schedules and communication in our team, but is very important for every community, even for employees.
    • What are your goals? What type of job do you want?  If you are applying with transcripts the initial option is really just whether or not to touch on the circumstances in your covering letter. If your 2L and 3L grades are all Bs and As, your transcript will kind of speak for itself and prove that your 1L grades did not reflect your capabilities. If you do address it in a covering letter I would suggest doing so only briefly - give it one sentence offering that your first year grades are not reflective of your capabilities and were the result of unfortunate external events.  It will probably come up in every interview though. It sounds like you have a very valid explanation. You have no need to be embarrassed. 
    • I wouldn’t address it in a cover letter. If it comes up in an interview, you can briefly address it, but anything in a cover letter is going to come across as you making excuses.  That said, I also wouldn’t wait to try to land a job. Start applying now and see what happens.  You may also want to see if your school has a mechanism for petitioning grades off your transcript. If so, it may be worth pursuing that.
