Incomplete Application Review

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Just curious, does the U of A review incomplete applications? Is it possible to get accepted without completing a personal statement or completing the lsat writing sample?

I’ve heard of people getting in prior to people submitting their writing samples, and LSAT’s are repeated prior to completing the writing section now. Still, it seems wise to complete these ASAP. Neither of them are very labour intensive, and better to be safe than sorry.

I received an offer of admission and an entrance scholarship prior to submitting a personal statement. It's very possible.

Cool, thanks! Also, just curious what your stats were and what the value of the entrance scholarship was? (If you do not feel like sharing I understand) I have a L2 of 3.8/3.9 and 163 on the lsat, curious if that is good enough to get some sort of entrance scholarship.

I can't speak to those specific stats but based on the people I know, I would not be surprised if those stats received something in the environment of $2500-$5000. However, that is all but pure conjecture, so don't put too much stock into it. I personally applied with a L2 that rounded to a 3.9 and scored 168 on the LSAT and received ~$11,000 in entrance scholarships.

Doesn't really matter if you get an entrance scholarship or not. I got $5800 in October, $1000 last week, and bursaries go out in December. Quite a few people I know received a lot of funding in October.

    • January LSAT as well?
    • Nope, I wrote the January LSAT. 
    • I had identical stats and was admitted long long time ago (2013). 
    • How long ago were you referred to adcom?
    • I have 2 little kids in daycare (aged 1 and 3) and it works, but just barely. My husband works long hours in a different industry and we stagger hours so that the kids aren't spending long days in care -- I drop off around 9 before heading into the office and he picks up around 4:30. I would suggest taking your kid's personality into account when deciding between a daycare and a nanny -- my baby would likely be fine with longer days, but my elder child would find it difficult. My elder would probably be happiest with a nanny, but also probably benefits the most from the daycare setting (socialization, having to deal with multiple teachers, structure).  Like all things kid-related, it totally depends on the kid.  The real problem with daycare is that the kid can't go there if they're ill. And little kids in a daycare setting get sick all the time. Seriously, all the time. I've received 3 calls to pick up my sick child from daycare in the month of February alone, and the kid has been too sick to return for several days each time. I'm a litigator, and appear in court at least a few days each week -- it's kind of a disaster. I am in a very family-friendly office, on an 80% schedule, and have family support and it's still a disaster. My spouse is generally unable to respond to the daycare call to pick up the kids, so it tends to fall to me or the grandparents, who pitch in more than is reasonable to expect.
