Accepted at around noon this afternoon!
 

LSAT: 169, GPA 3.87, strong ECs. Applied last minute, thought my personal statement would be the issue. 

Last initial: B!

Congrats to everyone who has been accepted already! Any idea when they'll be sending acceptance emails? I'm wondering if I'll get a call if accepted since I don't live in Canada.

I don't completely remember but I think she said in the next few days, and then a rushed acceptance package in the mail in the next week or so. 

 

Good luck!

Congrats to all admitted! Can only imagine your excitement.


With that being said - can we change this title to 2018, to match the rest of the accepted threads/avoid confusion?

Whoops sorry about that, I suppose 2018 would make sense. In my excitement I didn't think much! 

 

Do I need to message the admins to do this? I don't think I can on my own. If anyone admins are reading this changing it to 2018 is fine by me.

New to this forum, so maybe this has already been addressed ... but do they typically give out all first round offers in one day or it lasts a couple days?

I think it generally lasts a few days, just judging by past accepted threads + past posts on their blog.

    • I'd like to offer a different perspective on why you should go to Queen's, in addition to everything stated above. I have found that lawyers coming from Ontario schools have a surprisingly easier time finding jobs in Western Canada (sometimes, even easier than some graduates of Western Canadian schools). This appears to mirror a general trend in Canada where it's easier to move  East to West, and much harder to move West to East. In my cohort, a handful of students secured jobs at big firms in Western provinces without having necessarily the most competitive grades. I do note, however, that many of these people were originally from out West (i.e., they were able to establish a connection). Even so, I also notice many Western firms respect Bay Street experience - that is, if you want to move out there one day in the future after working for some years here. Just a thought. Also, I'd like to qualify the above observation by noting these are just some observations I've noted over the years, and it may may not hold necessarily hold true in all cases.

    • Yeah I’ve heard 1L has a tendency to do that lol 
    • There is literally no point* in living in Vancouver unless you're going to stick around for the summers, so I would take that into consideration.            * - I guess you could get up to the city mountains a couple times as a law student with the odd trip to a bigger hill. In that case, there may be one point.
