chances? 3.51 cgpa, 150 and 156.

Recommended Posts

L2 might be 3.6 or so .. LSAT's are from dec 2017 and feb 2018. 

Do I have any shot for Fall 2018?

Curious about this as well! I have similar stats - 3.53 CGPA, L2 around the same or higher, LSAT: 154 (June 17), 159 (Sept 17), and 156 (Feb 18).

I think that's well below the median for both lsat and gpa and l2 I think it cud be very difficult 

The second poster perhaps the 159 might do something very late in the cycle e.g. August but it' an uphill battle

1st poster - If you're unsure about your L2 I would recommend calculating it to find out for sure.  Queens seems to be focusing more on L2 this cycle.  If your "3.6 or so" L2 is a 3.65ish or higher, I think you may have a shot later on in the cycle, maybe summer.  Worst case, try bringing that LSAT above a 160 and re-apply next cycle.

Are you still completing your undergrad? I ask in case there is any chance you may be able to bump up that L2 a little bit.  My CGPA was lower than yours (3.49) and I got into QL this Feb (163 LSAT 3.76 L2).  

If you have your heart set on QL, your stats are fairly salvageable for next admissions cycle.

Have you applied/been accepted elsewhere?

 

2nd poster - Again I would calculate your L2 so you know for sure, with your 159 and your decent CGPA I think it could make all the difference in knowing whether or not your competitive. 

 

 

Good Luck!

I will see if I can calculate it out and I'll report back with it but no, unfortunately this is my last year. Thanks anyway.

If this is your last year, then consider staying back for another year to bump up the L2.

You need 3.7+ L2 and 160+ LSAT to be competitive for L2 / B2 schools

But its already my 5th year... I would just take random courses for no reason to bump it up? I don't understand how that would work. 

Also, I'm not sure if this would be considered differently but I go to U of T, the downtown campus. Its quite difficult to get a high GPA here.

I also went to.u of t, my last year being at that.campus, it was harder for me too tbh yes that's true , but the admissions committee will.not care about the fact we went to.u of t or we didn't

That 3.7 changes a lot for you, you might have a shot but imo.that 156 lsat is significantly.lower than class medians and mite hurt your chances or very least push them into late late summer, but some.posters thinking that this cycle is focused more on b2 than lsat which would be really.good for.you

I would guess the advice was suggesting for future cycles e.g. fall 2019 take another year bump up that best 2 last 2, then maybe even retake the lsat again this summer and reapply for the next year' cycle then you mite have a strong shot depending on how the lsat goes , for this cycle I don't see how any of this advice applies

Its really unfortunate that degree / where you graduate from isn't taken into account, considering the vast levels of change in difficulty of schools and programs one could take.. Thanks for your advice.

My L2 is 3.53 same as my CGPA, my B2 is 3.58, my B3 is 3.54 

Not sure if this will make a difference in my application!

Queen's is B2 not L2

From the QL FAQ:

In the General Category, competitive applicants should have at least an “A-” average (GPA 3.7) in the top two years of their undergraduate degree program at a full course load along with an LSAT score of at least 157

 

I always read "top 2" as last two, but re-reading their admissions FAQs it seems your right! Looks like they focus on B2.

ohh okay! well hey thats good news I guess. I'm off the minimum score by 1 though so, I probably am not going to be very competitive..

Yeah so they used to explicitly say last 2 years but this year they changed the wording. Back in November it actually literally said "best" but now that it's saying "top" I suppose that's a little more obscure.

    • En me basant sur le forum de l'année passée, j'ai vu des personnes acceptées avec des GPA de 3.4 (bac complété) et 3.61 (bac non complété), donc ça peut te donner une idée. J'ai également vu des gens avec des GPA plus bas acceptés de la liste d'attente. 
    • As far as i know there was only one 1L who secured a summer job last year at a corporate firm through the 1L recruit. I am wondering if there is anyone on this forum who has had experience with being a Windsor 1L and trying their hand at the 1L recruit. I am interested in corporate law and would love to secure a 1L position at a bay st firm if possible. Please respond here or also willing to take our convo to the PM's if anyone looking to respond finds comfort in that.  Also - the question is open to anyone with an opinion on how 1L recruit might go for someone with decent work experiences and all the other normal ECs...i suppose i should mention that i am waiting on a few marks but i can provide what i have so far in a PM. 
    • I'll add that one potential reason candidates may get this question often in interviews is because they haven't really helped guide the interviewers using their resume (or cover letter) to good softball topics. By god, the interests section is a free pass to express your identity--within reason and considering your audience of course. It was years ago, but I recall very few of my OCI interviews started anywhere outside of my resume's interests section. It's always been a frequent source of interview conversation since then. Use it. If you list your interests generically as "Cooking. Travelling. Hockey. Running", it just leads to questions equivalient to "please elaborate". Or if your interviewers have just completed six other back-to-back interviews and are too tired or lazy to parse your generic interests, that may explain why they're asking you to "tell us about yourself" because the resume failed to. If you list interests like "Pizziaolo. Crossed the Sahara. Rent-a-Goalie. Marathonist. Commemorative POG collector." then you will get questions like "okay, you have gotta tell us about your pog collection", and then you actually get to talk enthusiastically about the things you like and do.  And as @Hegdis and @realpseudonym point out, your interviewer is looking for light conversation, but also note that a conversation isn't a monologue. Be prepared to talk about stuff that interests you, but be prepared to be reasonably brief about it. Not so brief that you aren't being informative or providing opportunities for follow up questions, but brief enough that interviewers can get a word in edgewise. Or change topic. 
    • I'm in a somewhat similar position. I have 23k in BC/Federal student loans and about 11k in cash due to the student loan increases / starting up a job. I think I'm going to try and pay off as much debt as possible in the next couple months and then start saving for law school. I'm not sure how your school does bursaries, but the UBC bursary calculator seems to only take into account your current cash reserves and not your net financial position. If that's the case I think it's worth it to try and reduce your debt as much as possible before beginning law school since you would qualify for more bursaries and end school with less debt. I don't think it's unethical to do this since I do need the money! I have negative equity and am paying for school myself.  The thing I'm trying to figure out is if making payments towards my student loans this year will impact my student loan amounts in future years. It doesn't seem like it will, but I want to be sure of that before making payments.    
    • Well, go to it. Sounds like your reasons are as good as anyone’s and it also sounds like you aren’t actually looking for advice here.
