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.

    • In firms are offered to all students (OCI school or not) at the same time on call day and take place during the proscribed interview week. And because I’m sure someone is wondering, those who did OCIs don’t have any kind of leg up over those that are interviewed for the first time in firm - once you’re in the door for the in firm you’re on the same footing. You just got there by different routes.
    • Hey all, Was hoping for some input on this as I've seen contradictory things and could use some advice. I've lived in Ontario my whole life and for various reasons am going almost certainly going to want to practice in Ontario after I finish schooling. I am however sick and tired of this place, and would love to spend the three years of law school in the glorious place that is British Columbia. I'm 99% sure I have the grades/lsat to get into UBC, but is it advisable to go to school across the country from where I plan to practice? I luckily have some sort of network here in Ontario already (Friend's family has a close relationship with a firm that operates in the exact field of law I'll likely be practicing in) but I'd rather not rely on that and would like some input. Thanks in advance, sorry if this topic has been beaten to death but I'm either a moron or searching things is kinda hard here.  .
    • Hey guys! so unfortunately I was rejected to the schools I applied to for sept 2019 and will be re-applying. I am wondering if in my personal statement I should mention that I applied last year and what I have been doing since my last application that makes me different. Is it worth mentioning or would it be a red flag for admissions to read a personal statement that says I’ve already been rejected prior. Any info on this will help! Thanks guys!
    • Hi everyone, Today I have been opening up/ getting ready to open applications in 6 Canadian Law Schools, UVIC being one of them. I don't know why I expected there to be a place where they would ask for a resume/CV from me. But so far I haven't really seen such places on the applications I have opened. Is this normal? If so, do schools typically just want me to include all extra curricular/ achievements in my personal statement?  Don't know anyone else applying for Law school so any input is appreciated.  If needed for reference I am applying to UVIC, UBC, U of A, U of C, TRU, U of Sask. 
    • Thanks so much for the reply! That's good to know.
