Hey everyone!

I know I’m probably just being dramatic and nervous, but is it common for there to be a decent amount of offers in March, or is UBC like U of T where they mostly do rejections then? For reference, my LSAT is a 166 and GPA is an 83.2%, which I know is just around their median. I felt good about my PS and talked a lot about the work I’d done for EDI at my university and my interest in pursuing criminal law. I know the next round is going to be after March 1, but I just wanted to see what you all thought. UBC is my top choice so I’m just starting to get a bit nervous!

UBC says they send out the majority of their acceptances between January and the end of April for their general applicants... I suspect if the majority went out January to the end of February they would say that instead. There's still time and hope, good luck to you!

Hi there! I'm in a similar boat as you - think my stats should be sufficient but have yet to hear from them.

I called admissions on feb 4 to ask about my adjusted gpa, and the person on the phone told me that from my stats I can still be optimistic about my chances, but by that point they had yet to read my PS. Also, when I asked, he said they had yet to read even half of the personal statements, so it seems like admissions has a lot of work ahead of them and more offers to be made (at least as of early feb). Fingers crossed for all of us!

    • No problem. I hope you can find an articling position in your local area, but I would suggest casting a wider net and include other parts of the GTA as well. 
    • I'm completing my last year of undergrad now. I think my file wouldn't have been complete until January when I sent my fall marks in... UBC doesn't care about the final year, but so far in terms of schools that do require fall grades, I've gotten into/heard back from TRU, UNB, Windsor, (and Lakehead but that was in December before I sent in grades). And echoing pmtfuturelawyer, yeah AB said they're planning for March 16th.
    • I'm not completing undergrad right now but u of a recently sent an email saying they would be reviewing Indigenous applications March 9th I believe and hopefully having decisions being sent out for March 16th... 
    • This was quite clearly not my point, which I know you understand considering you felt the need to caricature my position. I do not think it is "bizarre" to assume that if financial security is present for a given student, other factors than employment prospects will come to the forefront in their decision making process - these other factors could simply be one's interest in a subject (as I have already discussed), but they could also very well be a lower difficulty level.  Also, it is ridiculous to construe my point as saying that "elite undergraduate programs and internships are full of disadvantaged students" when my overarching theme is accessibility to those elite institutions for disadvantaged students in the first place. 
    • Some firms are replacing meals/receptions with 30 minute "coffee chats", either over the phone or video calls. For most large firms your second interview will not occur on the same day as your first. I know of at least one mid-size firm which has said they may invite candidates back for second interviews on the same day.
