Ahh! Accepted. Just got the email. Yay! Yayyayyayyayyayyayyayyayyay.

162 LSAT, BSc (low cgpa, midrange L2), MA (good gpa) 

I think great ECs (sports, volunteering, 4th yr UG thesis), worked through my undergrad and grad degrees. Originally from AB.

References were my theses supervisor (one person) and a committee member who I now volunteer with. 

(My GPA is nothing to post about - if you'd like specifics plz pm me.)

I submitted everything last week of October. Green circle happened about two weeks ago. 

Also congrats to you lau! And to everyone else who gets accepted. Good luck to those of you who are still waiting or finishing up your applications.

Congrats!! So exciting. Mind sharing your stats?


While I am happy for you, this makes me just that much more anxious, as I am still waiting for LORs. 

Tell me about it! I'm still waiting for a second letter. As soon as I saw this thread I opened my Gmail to send an angry email to my referee, but thankfully I cooled down in time. Why do people accept to write a reference letter enthusiastically, just to take a year to do it? sigh... 

I doesn't even take long. Maybe half an hour, if that. At this point I don't even care if she wants to half ass it. Just send it in already. Jesus.

 Thanks so much! @kiyak I submitted the whole thing Oct 31, waited two weeks for my transcripts to show as received and got the green circle over a month ago.

Waiting for the transcripts was tough.

Hey bb213 do you mind sharing what your CGPA and L2 was and whether you feel like you had strong ECs?? Also are you currently in your 4th year of undergrad?

 

Sorry for all the questions^^

Not a problem at all! I don't know from CGPA or L2, all I know is 3.5 according to Calgary and LSAT only write 161. I finished BA/MA,  but Calgary doesn't seem to have a mature category so applied reg stream. I had zero EC's/ volunteering in undergrad but after wrote for a few magazines and was on radio for a few years, traveled and picked up some languages so I think it was more that stuff and not my stellar grades :/

Don't ever be sorry for asking questions.

    • Not directly related to law school ranking, but a healthy reminded that the success of a school's graduates isn't necessarily a measure of school quality. NYC has elite high schools whose graduates overwhelmingly place at Ivy League (or equivalent) universities.  Signs that they're good schools right?  Hmm, not so much, according to the Brookings Institute:  https://www.brookings.edu/research/evidence-on-new-york-city-and-boston-exam-schools/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=es Their research suggests that students who are "just" admitted to those schools don't do any better than students who "just" miss the admissions cut-off (i.e., functionally identical students who differ only in the schools they attend).  In other words, where kids go to school has no impact on whether they attend ivy league schools, suggesting that the "quality" impact of the elite schools are overrated.  They found similar results for schools in Boston too.  If elite schools place better than non-elite schools, the data suggests its because they admit elite students, not that they're better schools.   Something to keep in mind while ranking law schools.  
    • Did you apply for first year JD? I am confused how you would have been able to apply past the November 1st deadline. Are you a transfer student?
    • i applied i february 2018 and i have 3.88 (B2) gpa and 160 lsat and i still have not heard back from queens...in their website i logged in and still says pending. is this normal? how am i supposed to even have time to find a place to live in kingston if they happen to accept me so late...
    • To my knowledge most students just paid their rent over the summer months to secure their place and avoid the inconvenience of moving every year. However, there were definitely some who found landlords willing to do 8 month leases. There's no harm in speaking with a rental manager/landlord about it even if an ad says 1 year lease required. Landlords in Kamloops seem to love renting to law students and some are willing to waive or reduce summer rent just to secure a mature student renter for 3 years. Plus in BC, like most provinces, there's a 30 day notice requirement for moving out of a rental so you'll likely see a big jump in places available for rent starting in September with a variety of lease requirements after August 1.
