As per queens website you are COMPETITIVE. Don't let people discourage you, I have heard of people getting waitlisted and accepted with worse stats. They note that competitive is 157 and 3.7. 

 

Good luck! We may end up in the class of 2023 together!

I agree with this; I was rejected from Queen's law with 3.78 CGPA, 3.84 L2, 3.84 B2, 157 LSAT, and an MA degree last year. (I applied under Access categories.) I think that the OP needs an LSAT score of at least 160 to have a realistic chance at Queen's law, although I have witnessed a few applicants that got in the law school with pretty similar stats compared to the OP's.

On a scale of competitiveness, a 157 LSAT is the lowest Queens will accept for consideration in the general category. An admissions officer told me last year that, although they publish that "a candidate should have at least a 157 to be considered competitive" they are unlikely to accept a 157 unless the student has a very high GPA (3.9-4.0) or has another exceptional aspect of their application that stands out.  However, if all of the other aspects of your application are about average, for you to have a realistic shot your LSAT should be above a 160.

I think these are the kind of stats that will get waitlisted and then accepted very late into the summer but yes if you can even improve your last by three points you have a very decent shot

    • Can you provide a break-down of the "bonuses?" If my math is right they total $8400. Is that a re-signing bonus?    
    • As everyone has mentioned above, only consider a foreign school if you have exhausted all your other options.  That being said, I would personally suggest Leicester. No one cares about which particular law school you went to when you come back (unless its the Top 3 mentioned above). The reason why I suggest Leicester is based on the fact that they have Canadian Faculty and have begun teaching Foundations of Canadian Law and Canadian Constitutional Law. This will not waive an NCA requirement, but it’s nice to have learnt that before having to do it on your own. Leicester is also extremely central, has a better cost of living than some other cities and the Canadian Law Society is actually a great tool. They hold alumni events twice a year in Canada and although the turnout is small, it’s still a great resource. All that being said, try your best to get into a Canadian Law school!   If you have any questions about Leicester or the whole process in general feel free to message me. I am a recent Leicester grad, have finished all my NCA’s and will be starting Articles in a couple of weeks.
    • lol property isn't all that bad, constitutional worst hands down
    • It's also probably better for the firms.  They spread the entire cost of their students over the 10 month articling term without paying lump sums for bonuses at different times of the year.
