UCL conditional offer with GPA requirement of 3.3/4.0

Please help!
I received a conditional offer from UCL via email in December and then got my official letter last week. It looks great, except that the condition is that I graduate from my American law school with a GPA of 3.3/4.0. This is mathematically impossible for me to do at this point! Does anybody know how strict UCL is with their conditions? Mine has currently been sent back to be "re-considered" in light of the gpa problem. My GPA is 3.13 right now, probably will be 3.16 upon graduation.

I'm a 3L in a Canadian law school and have the same problem. How do you know the application is being "re-considered"?

Silver- I emailed the admissions offer when I received the letter and she sent me an email back, saying that she has returned it to the law faculty to be re-considered. I guess they are different offices. I basically told her that I want to come, but that my GPA is not going to be what the condition set forth.

Yeah, please let me know what they say. I e-mailed the LLM office at UCL directly, and they said that normally when students fall just under the requirements after we get our final grades, we should e-mail them. As I understand things, the conditional should be misinterpreted as a tacit way of guaranteeing admission with incentive to keep grades up. In another post a guy reported that his friend got a conditional offer from UCL, didn't make the offer condition, and consequently had his offer rescinded.

Ah sorry, I made a typo. I meant, "As I understand things, the conditional should NOT be misinterpreted as a tacit way of guaranteeing admission..."
