Access Queen's 2019

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Have any more access applicants heard back? I'm starting to get a bit anxious. Will there be a mass rejection and waitlist period?

I'm an access applicant and haven't heard anything. I don't see a Rejected thread for Queen's yet so I'm just assuming there'll be a mass rejection wave soon.

Yeah I agree, which sucks, I would have rather just received a rejection when they decided it, not much later on.

There is a rejection thread here: 

So confused and honestly, I am getting tired of waiting. I just want an answer one way or another so I can move on and rent a place for September.

Let's not give up! I believe there will be another wave of acceptances! They surely wouldn't reject all of us access applicants! I'm holding on until the bitter end.

My worry is that they already accepted their access applicants and they just aren't on this forum. A majority of applicants aren't. So we may potentially just be waiting for a mass rejection come mid June.

@SpaceLawyer When I called two weeks ago, Andrew said the class was "close to full". So, considering people have been accepted since then, I don't think we have a great shot. I saw a few access applicants were accepted in this year's thread; however, if CoffeeandLaw is correct, then we cannot actually tell who is being admitted under access or general. Even if we get on the waitlist, as it is unnumbered, we're in essentially the same position as now.

Yeah I got told the same thing. I honestly don't believe i'm getting in, it'd be a dream, but I won't be. I just want to get the rejection/waitlist number just to know.

Unfortunately, I don't believe that Queens has a ranked waitlist.

Not a word. Packing up the family and moving to Windsor at the end of the month, assuming I don’t hear anything positive from Queen’s this week.

Also an Access applicant, also still waiting. My co-worker is an Access applicant as well, and the last school that she's waiting on is Queens.

Still waiting on Queens and Ottawa. I have arbitrarily decided that June 17 is the last day that I will be waiting. At least with Ottawa, I can determine if I have a realistic shot off the waitlist. I have been on Windsor's waitlist since February, so I know that with Queens' unnumbered waitlist, we're essentially in the same as the position we're in now. Otherwise, I need to start finding a place to live in Fredericton.

I believe that Queen's new class is now nearly full; so, I don't think that we have any forseeable hope.

How do you guys know this? Not an access applicant but a general applicant who hasnt heard back. I am so frustrated with queen's. Rejecting us would be simple for them - so why do we have to wait and go through this mental torment? Im so angry and will be calling them first thing monday morning

They're probably just going to send out a mass rejection list instead of doing it person by person.

@HOPEFULshould They told me they were almost full about 2 or 3 weeks ago over the phone. I did not specifically ask about access applicants. I wouldn't even bother calling them. The guy on the phone seemed very annoyed, kept sighing, and the only thing he said was that "decisions come out when they are made". He could not provide me with a time that we would be hearing back. When you e-mail them, it takes them 2 weeks to answer and the reply I received to my question was one sentence long and filled with spelling mistakes.

What really bothers me is that out of all the schools I applied to, I thought with a 3.7 L2, a 164 LSAT and an MA, that I would get an offer. Thought I wrote a really good PS too. I wonder what the hell went wrong, and whether I should wait to hear their feedback and whether it's worth applying again next year, or just say the hell with them and take Windsor or Ottawa (if I am accepted there) this year.

    • Hey guys,  I have a couple of questions. I know basics about the gpa conversion (the chart they use -4.33 scale) but I'm a little confused on the number of credits drops in my case, as I took some credit/nocredit courses with no percentage/grades given. I have 135 credits in terms of graded ones (I did a fifth year) but I have 144 total credits.  If I drop 6 half year credits my GPA works out to 3.78/4.33 If I drop 8 half year credits, my GPA works out to 3.85/4.33 If I drop 10 half year credits, GPA is 3.90/4.33 My LSAT is a 163. Does anyone know how many credits I would be able to drop in my situation and also what my chances would be? I can't seem to find answers in the threads or when I call the office its opaque Thank you
    • I dont really think its a problem. I took psych 100 and a 200 level course in my final semester. 
    • There is an environmental law class, and there's an environmental law club that organizes negotiation competitions involving mock 3-party negotiations between a government, a corporation, and a local community. Students also go to UBC every year to participate in a TRU/UBC/Uvic environmental law negotiation competition. Last year TRU sent multiple teams and took home 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
    • Does anyone know how long it takes for schools to receive your lsat score after you finish the written portion? 
    • A more thorough response now that I have a minute.  No one whatsoever would question why you are applying to Ottawa for health law such that you have to justify it by talking about being close to federal institutions (which doesn't make a ton of sense anyway since much more health policy is done at the provincial level) and explaining that the tuition is lower.  Ottawa is, unquestionably, the strongest school for health law in Ontario.  It isn't even close.  The UofT used to be strong in health law, but due to departures, retirements, etc., the program is a mere shell of what it used to be.  If you look at the list of faculty now, it is Trudo Lemmens and two people who are retired.  And if you look at the purported list of courses, they list anything even vaguely relevant to health law, including administrative law and patents.  Those aren't health law classes.  As for Osgoode, they don't have much of anything relevant to JDs.  They have a professional LLM in health law and a certificate program that is not for current JD students.  Looking at their current list of JD courses, they have Disability and the Law taught by an adjunct, Environmental Law, which no one considers health law, Health Law taught by two adjuncts, Law and Psychiatry taught by two adjuncts, and Patents, which no one considers health law (and the guy teaching it doesn't specialize in pharma patents anyway).  They do have a couple of people who do health law but aren't teaching or whose work is only tangentially related to health law.
