Schulich Stop Sending Random Emails that don't involve admissions challenge

Recommended Posts

Title says it all. Received an email from Schulich about some webinar re: their combined degrees, and had a mini heart attack because I thought it was an admissions decision. Not cool 😡 

This brings me to a related point: I wonder why they're taking so long relative to other years? I know this forum is not necessarily representative of the Canadian applicant population at-large, but it is getting a bit annoying that there doesn't seem to be any decisions going out, when last year the Accepted 2020 thread began November 13th. 12 days later this year, and nada. COVID is a thing of course, but that won't stop me from being impatient and whining.

I definitely am feeling what you’re feeling every time I get an email from a school I’ve applied (or  the countless emails from US schools...I don’t know why penn state is so thirsty for me). I am assuming that the admissions department/committee are probably working from home this year, which could slow down the process quite a bit. I know that they’ve started assessing applications, so hopefully we will start hearing decisions sometime soon! Best of luck to you.

I keep trying to read tea-leaves on this too. Cognitively I understand that we are living in (largely) unprecedented times, and I am beyond empathetic to everyone trying to administrate universities right now, but all those thinky-bits don't alleviate all the BIG NERVES in my feels

    • Bonjour, hi Je suis étudiante au Bacc à l’université de l’UQAM. J’ai 3,88 de GPA en science politique et 66 crédits d’accumulés. J’ai fais ma demande il y a deux jours à l’UQAM et l’UDEM. Qui a reçu des réponses déjà ? sinon quels sont vos statistiques? Venez on se supporte jusqu’aux résultats 🙏🏻🤞🏻
    • Got an offer this afternoon. TRU seems like an awesome school. I am so excited to meet new people and expand my mind. I am very grateful to TRU for offering me this opportunity.  GPA Grade Range from Application Assessment: A+  LSAT: 163, 86th percentile.   Regular applicant EC's: Worked in an MLA's Office for 8 months, interned for a provincial Minister of Education, tons of volunteering for a provincial political party, did an honours thesis during my degree, and worked as a policy researcher in the US.  Good luck to everyone and never give up! I've seen users in other spaces of this forum who like to make others feel insecure, don't let them deter you!
    • My best 2 years was 3.02, but this endeavor may be a waste of time and I fully understand that I should have dropped out rather than half-ass it for 5 years. But I need to know if discretionary boards would consider high 90's and 100's in full course load on top of a good lsat as enough evidence to admit?
    • I can't really afford Windsor. But I'm desperate to get into law school. As we know these days an undergrad degree is by itself a worthless scrap of paper. I understand that York and Toronto are out of the question, but I don't need to work on Bay Street, I have a dream of being a criminal defense lawyer in any capacity, even legal aid. I hope by showing that when motivated I am capable of high 90's and 100's as well as a good LSAT that I can impress the review boards and get in. I am unfortunately a white male and I know that doesn't help my chances for access but my illness was severe and kept me from taking my studies seriously. Now that I am focused I am studying 10 hours a day and breezing through all my courses. But I understand that sometimes it's just too late. Do you think it would sound like a sob story? Or would a severe mental illness qualify as discretionary/access? Any responses appreciated
    • Hello, To anyone who understands how discretionary works, I am wondering what the details of this category are and what schools I should apply to, as well as what the best wording to use in my letters.   I was diagnosed 2 years ago with severe mental illness. My GPA is terrible 2.60 however my last semester I got a 4.3 and I believe I can pull off another 2 before applying in November. If I can get a psychiatrist letter and score 170 plus on the LSAT, and write a compelling letter, both of which I believe are possible, do you think a full year of perfect grades along with an explanation of my poor GPA and a good LSAT would be enough to get into a more holistic school such as TRU or Lakehead, or even Dalhousie? Do you know if Dalhousie counts summer semesters in their "last 2 years" metric?    Sorry for the rambling. Any knowledge is appreciated on this subject
