Does Queen's split up years in the B2 analysis?

Recommended Posts

I'm taking an extra semester in 5th year to finish my degree and boost my GPA. I'm wondering if Queen's would consider that extra semester, my entire fourth year, and then winter semester of third year; or if they only look at full years. I've emailed admissions but no one has gotten back to me. Thanks

I should add that these four semesters would be my best grades

Depends on when you're applying. If you're applying this Fall for September 2019 admittance, and also finishing your last term this Fall, then when you apply you won't have any marks for your term, so you application will be assessed with your current 3rd and 4th year. But adcoms will update your application once you send them your final grades, whenever this becomes available. And most files don't get read until the Winter term anyway. So your new grades would factor into a recalculation of your Best 2

Hey if anyone had the same question, Queen's got back to me with this: 


We do not split academic years by semester. We would be looking at your 2 highest scoring sets of Fall & Winter semesters that were completed at a full load.

    • Hey there, tagging along on this post.. does anyone know how they consider exchange grades? I did a semester abroad in third year, second semester and had a pretty decent GPA there and OLSAS has received/ reviewed that transcript... but not sure what schools do re: L2... any thoughts? Thanks!

    • Hi, I was curious what statute and exactly where does it state that everyone is equal in law?
    • Background: My cold diagnostic score was about 135 (43% correct on 101 question test) two months ago. Have been studying casually since then, perhaps <10 hours in total because of school. Studying mainly with Mcgraw Hill prep's online course that accompanies the book. I did an online practice test this morning and scored about 138 (45% correct on 101 question test). Scenario: - Goal score is 165. - Registered for January 26th LSAT (about 6 weeks time). - Will have time to study full time 40hrs or more a week. - Current resources: The LSAT Trainer, Mcgraw Hill prep book (2017), Baron's Logic Games prep book, Baron's General prep book, Kaplan's LSAT Premier (2016-2017) prep book, and Princeton Review LSAT Decoded Prep Tests 72-76.  - PT1 Results: Arguments 1 = 68% correct, Arguments 2 = 44% correct, Reading Comprehension = 28% correct, Logic Games = 38% correct Questions: 1. What should I focus on with my current resources of books? 2. Should I buy the 7Sage online course to prep? 3. If you were in my shoes, how would you schedule your time? 4. Any other advice?
    • Two individuals in 4th year (one referred to "last year of studies") posted their stats on the accepted thread today. I think that settles the currently still in school aspect of the debate.
