So now we wait... 2020 acceptance

Recommended Posts

Applied, all supplemental materials in. Waiting for those sweet acceptance/rejection notices now. How many do you think go out in December?

Last year it seemed like it wasn't a huge number in December, but that impression is necessarily compromised by the fact that, of course, not all applicants are on this board!

I believe the first acceptances were December 21st, which was a Friday last year - so perhaps the 20th this year? My November LSAT becomes available on the 19th, apparently, so I hope they wait til they get that. ;)

The second round of acceptances seemed to go out In Mid-January.

Last year you could apply on the last week of October, where as this year the first week of November. I don't know if that will delay anything, but it may. One less week for consideration. Hope you aced the November LSAT, or at least did well enough to get in, but not so good as to bump me out.

Hah! Same I guess!

I think I could be anywhere between about 157 and 161 depending on my luck. 3.93 B2 though so I'm hoping my marks will drag me across the line... :)

Not many get accepted early on. The bulk of acceptances will be March-May I imagine. I got accepted on the 16th of January last year and there was only 12(?) of us at that point. That being said, I wrote my only LSAT in November of that year and my app was complete the second week of December and in evaluation so pretty quick turnaround time is possible.

Always feel free to shoot me a message if you have any questions.

    • Yes. 100 percent true and has happened. Bad undergrad grades much more likely to be a non factor than any sort of determining factor.
    • I’m also an international applicant, I heard back this week. I’m not sure if there is a general trend, and it’s hard to tell because proportionally most people who post here are domestic 
    • When I was going to recruiting events in the UK, some of the best ones that I got were portable chargers, headphones, cardholders, coffee cups, and travel bottles. Highlighters, sticky notes, flags, and notebooks were also highly sought. One of the worst ones (in my opinion) was a chalkboard mug. It was handy, but it was really useless and unnecessary. 
    • If you want to work in BC, then being in BC is only going to make that easier (both local law, and local connections), but Alberta is unlikely to be a bad choice for that, it just doesn't have the local benefits. It would likely have a lower cost (even Vic living would be more, never mind Vancouver). UVic coop can offer some unique opportunities unavailable to students at other schools, but it also doesn't guarantee anything, and you might find yourself competing against other students for great jobs anyway (especially for during summer).   One thing to bear in mind with UVic is that funding is heavily needs-based, so if you're in a position to pay for 2/3 of things upfront as you say, that might actually work against you a little, as people who can pay for things are expected to, and people who can't get the bursaries - which is a thing it's a little hard to complain about because people without money are the ones who need it, but it also means the ones who diligently saved can feel a little punished for being responsible. That said, it would likely be a mid point of cost between UBC and UoA - Victoria's expensive, it's not Vancouver expensive.   And UoA has a prairie winter, nobody wants that.
