Lol. I can't even fathom what it must be like for your cycle to be done. I haven't heard anything other than a waitlist from the windsor dual program... Congrats though! Seems well deserved.

Thank you! Good luck, I am sure you will hear back soon. Congrats on your LSAT. :)

I thought waiting for LSAT marks was bad, turns out waiting for a response from your first choice is way worse! Ive got comparable stats to people who have already been accepted, which adds to the anxiety, but my L2 is identical to my cGPA (3.6) and I wrote the LSAT three times (average 160, best 168). I've read on other threads that they order applications based on your average LSAT mark but is that still in play at this point? Does a lack of an upward trend in your L2 reflect badly on your application?

I think you'll be just fine with a 3.6 and a 168. Keep in mind a lot of people reject come late March so another "wave" is sent out, presumably at that point with candidates they've already approved and just are waiting for seats to open to give them.

 

I don't know if you applied, but I'd hazard a guess and say you have a shot at u of t too (although later probably). A 168 is a very impressive lsat score.

 

Good luck.

Just jumping in to support this - I would put serious money on you getting into Queen's with those stats! The last few acceptances in this thread, including mine, have had the same if not slightly lower stats.

The only thing about your stats that could hurt your chances would be the fact that your LSAT 168 is after 3 separate takes.

 

The LSAT's primary use is to help predict law school 0L/1L success, which in turn is highly related to bar passage rate. However, the LSAT is only predictive for first takers (and even then, its relation is a noisy so-so). They'll probably look at your LSAT mean more than the 168.

How do you treat multiple LSAT scores?

The Admissions Committee initially considers the average score for the ranking of applicants for scholarship purposes and ordering review of the files for decision by the Committee. The Admissions Committee will rely on the highest score achieved at the time of the admission decision.

 

- Queens website. So basically, they sort which files they review by average LSAT, but ultimately decision is based on highest LSAT.

Anybody else apply to a dual program? I applied to the jd/MPA and was just accepted with a substantial scholarship to the MPA but haven't heard from the JD yet. Wondering if the decision process is any different for dual programs / if my acceptance to the MPA will have any weight on my JD application!

I applied to the JD/MPA program as well and was accepted to the MPA program earlier this week. Unfortunately, I haven't heard anything about the JD yet either.

    • I'll just say, as a 3L, school by Zoom and/or pre-recordings is pretty sweet. I did the socializing thing in the first two years of law school and I'm fortunate enough to have a core group of friends. The current arrangement means I'm saving a LOT of time not commuting, I get more done, and I can hold down two part time jobs.
    • Already did. But you do realize that it's important to inquire about future job opportunities before even going down the path of law school, right? I don't want to enter law school and get some useless law degree (for all I know) that won't make me any good money. Which is why I ask important questions about potential future employment before even going down this long path. It's only rational to inquire. Thanks for the clarifications on the job requirements though. I seem to get it now. How so? I understand that there's technically no bar exam, but there is the PTLC barrister and solicitor exams after articling. So you're still not technically a lawyer after passing these exams, which are the final hurdle? What more do you need to do to be a member of the law society?  
    • definitely the best part of law school. Or if you're older, 3 years of reliving your youth. I hate covid so so much.
    • Hello everyone I'm a new PR in Canada who finished all undergraduate overseas. Have taken my first LSAT last month and waiting for Oct score. Will definitely rewrite😃 and aim for better LSAT, but just curious about what's the chance with current stats? Other info: work exp - 5 yrs as investment analyst / IELTS 8.5 also applying for Osgoode / Ottawa / Queens / Western UBC allegedly convert a WES-A into 86 and WES-B into 73 instead of recalculating my original score on transcript, 85.89 is the result of this alleged calculation; if I use original transcript it will be 90+
