    Deciding a direction in law

    Granted I've only completed 1L and have a ways to go before I begin my career, I didn't think it necessary to know what stream of law I would want to practice. I think it makes sense, in a perfect world, to know from the get-go so that you can take more courses that interest you. I approached 1L with the idea that anything could end up interesting me and was naturally attracted towards corporate (probably because of my business undergrad) and criminal law. I'm going towards those in upper year. Besides, in 1L, all of my courses were mandatory anyway. I'm not sure if you have started school yet or if you are applying, but I wouldn't worry about it too much. You won't be prevented from practicing sports law just because you didn't take sports law as a course. hope that helps!

    what lsat score do i need to compensate for my low grades?

    I had a 3.39 CGPA in undergrad with a downward trend (probably closer to 2.8-3.0 in my last year). I got a 161 and a 165 on the LSAT and was accepted early to Queen's and Western (I'm going into 2L at Queen's). I did apply to the access category for Western though. My bet would be that you'd want to aim for the low to mid 160's at least, unless you have extenuating factors that can help justify the lower marks.

    1L 2017-2018 Dean's Honour List?

    I just got the notification via email. Weird that they do both mail and email...

    1L 2017-2018 Dean's Honour List?

    By mail do you mean actual physical mail? or email?

    1L 2017-2018 Dean's Honour List?

    thanks! That’s what I figured. I was wondering whether the awards would show up in time for applications.

    1L 2017-2018 Dean's Honour List?

    Have people been notified about the Dean's Honour list for 1L? If so, what was the cut-off?

    Queen's 1L grades - propsects for OCIs?

    Honestly wasn't trying to brag! The 4.0 scale to me is weird and foreign. But by the sound of it, I don't have much to worry about. Also, I've heard that NY jobs require top marks, and I have no idea what exactly that means!

    Queen's 1L grades - propsects for OCIs?

    The reason I asked is that everyone in law school is used to getting good grades, that's why most of us get in. I don't know what an "average" 1L student gets - the curve is not perfectly correlated with actual GPAs. Also, my undergrad GPA was a converted 3.39 - hardly spectacular - which is why a 3.64 to me sounds foreign. Anyway, thanks for the feedback!
  10. Hi guys, So 1L was quite an experience, and overall, I am happy with how it played out at Queen's. In terms of grades, here is what I got: Intro to Legal Skills : B+ Torts: B+ Property: B+ Criminal: A- Public: A Constitutional: A Contracts: A My CGPA is 3.64, which was brought down a bit by ILS. I'm definitely happy with my grades, but I just don't know what to expect since law school grades are relative to others and I haven't spoken to anyone else in my class since leaving Kingston. I was wondering what my chances are for OCIs, targeting corporate commercial. Looking at Bay Street or Ottawa, maybe NYC if feasible. All thoughts or comments are appreciated!

    Chances? GPA 3.61/4.0 LSAT 165

    subjectively I think you'll get accepted - I got in early with a 3.39 and 165.
  12. SeniorLopez247

    Chances? 165 + 3.21 cGPA, 3.47 L2, 3.53 B2

    I was accepted last year in early February with a 3.39 and 165 combo - it all comes down to your personal statement!
  13. SeniorLopez247

    cGPA 3.4/LSAT 166 Chances?

    I was offered admission a while back with a 3.39 and 161/165 LSAT scores (from Feb and June 2016) so I wouldn't give up just yet! My ECs weren't spectacular either. I think they're just backlogged this year, as are most schools which explains the slow responses.

    Business/IP law at Queen's

    Can anyone speak to the courses and "streams" that tailor towards business law and to IP law? This is a major area of interest and it seems as though it's not that prominent at Queen's as opposed to say Western. Could somebody speak from experience (or research) on this? Thanks!
