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.

    • Bonjour, hi Je suis étudiante au Bacc à l’université de l’UQAM. J’ai 3,88 de GPA en science politique et 66 crédits d’accumulés. J’ai fais ma demande il y a deux jours à l’UQAM et l’UDEM. Qui a reçu des réponses déjà ? sinon quels sont vos statistiques? Venez on se supporte jusqu’aux résultats 🙏🏻🤞🏻
    • Got an offer this afternoon. TRU seems like an awesome school. I am so excited to meet new people and expand my mind. I am very grateful to TRU for offering me this opportunity.  GPA Grade Range from Application Assessment: A+  LSAT: 163, 86th percentile.   Regular applicant EC's: Worked in an MLA's Office for 8 months, interned for a provincial Minister of Education, tons of volunteering for a provincial political party, did an honours thesis during my degree, and worked as a policy researcher in the US.  Good luck to everyone and never give up! I've seen users in other spaces of this forum who like to make others feel insecure, don't let them deter you!
    • My best 2 years was 3.02, but this endeavor may be a waste of time and I fully understand that I should have dropped out rather than half-ass it for 5 years. But I need to know if discretionary boards would consider high 90's and 100's in full course load on top of a good lsat as enough evidence to admit?
    • I can't really afford Windsor. But I'm desperate to get into law school. As we know these days an undergrad degree is by itself a worthless scrap of paper. I understand that York and Toronto are out of the question, but I don't need to work on Bay Street, I have a dream of being a criminal defense lawyer in any capacity, even legal aid. I hope by showing that when motivated I am capable of high 90's and 100's as well as a good LSAT that I can impress the review boards and get in. I am unfortunately a white male and I know that doesn't help my chances for access but my illness was severe and kept me from taking my studies seriously. Now that I am focused I am studying 10 hours a day and breezing through all my courses. But I understand that sometimes it's just too late. Do you think it would sound like a sob story? Or would a severe mental illness qualify as discretionary/access? Any responses appreciated
    • Hello, To anyone who understands how discretionary works, I am wondering what the details of this category are and what schools I should apply to, as well as what the best wording to use in my letters.   I was diagnosed 2 years ago with severe mental illness. My GPA is terrible 2.60 however my last semester I got a 4.3 and I believe I can pull off another 2 before applying in November. If I can get a psychiatrist letter and score 170 plus on the LSAT, and write a compelling letter, both of which I believe are possible, do you think a full year of perfect grades along with an explanation of my poor GPA and a good LSAT would be enough to get into a more holistic school such as TRU or Lakehead, or even Dalhousie? Do you know if Dalhousie counts summer semesters in their "last 2 years" metric?    Sorry for the rambling. Any knowledge is appreciated on this subject
