I got a verbal unofficial confirmation from Diane Mirth at U of Alberta...that is even with my crappy LSAT score.

matt

Matt, what exactly did Diane Mirth tell you?  They refuse to tell me anything besides "you are an excellent candidate".  I am beginning to wish I applied to more schools than just Ualberta.  U of T gave me a deadline extension but if I don't get into UA I doubt UT will want me.......   *sigh*

Hey Dumb_Jock, how did you get a deadline extension from UofT?  Did you have any extenuating circumstances?  I ask because I would like to apply to UofT but I decided to do lawschool after Nov 1.  I know UofT accepts late applications but was wondering just how lenient they were, whether its just for special circumstances or anybody who wants to.  Thanks.

Heh, Diane Mirth warms up to you after a while

"excellent candidate" = IN.

BTW :)

Here is the lingo they use

"excellent" = easy.
"competitive" = more than likely as long as your numbers dont change

I dont know the rest...but they dont throw those words around loosely.

163 is their magic LSAT number.  You can have pretty bad scores and get in with a 163 at U of A, they are desperate to raise their LSAT number.

hey bball,   I don't know why I got the extension. I hadn't considered U of T since my 3.4/ 165 is below thier medians but they sent me a letter in the mail saying they got my name from LSAC candidate referal thingy and would like me to apply and since it was past Nov 1 they gave me till Jan.25.  I'm not sure if my being an economically disadvantaged Latino had anything to do wit it, U of T does say they seek diversity

Thx for the insight Matt, have you submitted the supplemental form to UAlberta yet?

yeppers.

I bitched and complained about my oct lsat and told them they had "my permission" to remove it from my scores when i was admitted, so they could boost their entrance numbers.

I'm actually shocked at how cocky my supplemental form was heh.

Mattew_24_24, I don't understand, you sound like a normal person today. What's the deal with all the talk yesterday. Anyhow, I suggest you remove those threatening posts yesterday or else I am going to report you to not only the moderators but perhaps the authorities.
