Is anybody still in queue from early March with good stats? If so, what is your take on things right now? Are spots filled? Is a rejection coming? Trying to stay positive but also be prepared for the worst.

3.75cGPA l2 4.0 and lsat 145,147 and 156 (March) I know my lsat still isn’t the best but I think my other stats are pretty good and still haven’t heard anything. I think at this point a rejection is more likely but still not certain. Fingers crossed for us!

I find it so hard to believe that all acceptances and wait list notifications have already gone out, especially since there are so many applicants with great stats still in queue. There must be another wave coming in the next week or 2? I spoke with adcom and they said acceptances will be rolling out until end of June.

What are your stats ?

I went into queue March 21. cGPA 3.3, L2 3.5, LSAT 147 (Sept 2016), 145 (Dec 2016), and 151 (January 2019), Masters with a 3.8 GPA (thesis stream), great ECs and LORs, strong PS. I don't necessarily think my grades and LSAT score are competitive, but my work and volunteer experience, academic research experience and involvement in extracurriculars enhance my application a lot. 

I've been monitoring both this thread and the accepted thread and can see that others with similar stats have either been accepted or are in the same boat as me (waiting to make it through the queue). 

I have been accepted to UK law programs, and so I am hoping to hear back from Oz before the beginning of June (fingers crossed I am not one of the applicants that won't hear back until the end of June). This is the second time around that I have applied to law school and so I am more optimistic at this point then I was the last time as I have significantly increased my odds from my previous application.

LSAT: 147 (Nov) and 161 (Jan), CGPA: 3.67, Masters in Poli Sci, several years of work experience in law firms, ref letter from the prof who supervised my thesis + a senior associate I report to and decent ECs. I feel I have a decent chance..but not sure if I ruined my chances by bombing the LSAT the first time and doing the Jan LSAT so late in the review cycle process

I think the Jan lsat should still be fine. I wrote mine and finally increased my score just recently in March (which I feel has put me behind a lot) so i think I should be more worried than you for sure!! Good luck:)

    • I'm currently taking my gap year working in a field related to my degree in business. If I had the necessary LSAT mark to get in this year, I likely would've just gone straight into law to be honest. But, as I sit here now, I think it may actually be more beneficial to me in the end to take this gap year for 3 main reasons: 1) Gain valuable experience working in a professional field. I also think working in a professional field will strengthen my application, as I currently do not have a lot of EC's. 2) $$$ - making money over this gap year will certainly be a big help when it comes time to pay for law school 3) Allows me to explore a job related to my degree to see whether it is something that I would be interested in pursuing further in the future. I don't know exactly what your degree is in, but who knows, maybe you'll get a job related to your degree and find that you enjoy it so much that you'd rather put off law school entirely or at least for another few years I definitely don't think taking a year off lowers your chances of getting in. If anything it strengthens your chances (obviously being dependent on what you're doing with your year off). For example: I imagine volunteering, working in a professional field, and taking part in other positive EC's would all be looked upon favourably by the admissions committee. I think it all just depends on what you do during your gap year. In the end, would I likely have gone straight into law if I had the LSAT mark? Yes. However, looking at it now, I think taking this gap year will certainly be more beneficial to me in the long-run.
    • I articled in a boutique commercial real estate law firm, but received more experience in litigation vs. solicitor work. I’m interested in solicitor work, but the particular firm I articled at didn’t have much work to give me except in litigation. I have some experience in drafting commercial leases, a residential agreement of purchase and sale, and other commercial agreements (e.g licenses and telecommunication access agreements) and I assisted in title review of a large commercial deal - but that’s about it. I’ve been applying for associate positions for awhile, but they all want 2-3 years of transactional experience. Should I give up and focus on applying for litigation jobs (where I have more experience)? Does anyone have experience being hired in commercial real estate with minimum experience? I’d really appreciate some insight into this from anyone with experience in commercial real estate. I’ve been networking, and the firm I articled at gave me good reference letters, but they’re not really willing to go the extra mile and refer me to contacts they know of (and I’ve asked / hinted). So now I’m wondering if I should give up the search and apply for litigation positions, even though practicing in commercial real estate is my dream. Any advice?
    • If your stats are accurate, you're safe applying to your top 3 and saving money by not applying to the rest.
    • Id gamble my entire PSLOC you'll get in at U of A
