Chances for Queen's after this semester?

That's really interesting. Several people with lower stats have already gotten in. I think Queens is just slower this cycle. Do you have a full-time course load throughout your degree? 

I agree! My stats are almost identical. L2 (84%) I think it calculates to 3.67 (not sure) and my LSAT is a 160. Haven’t heard anything from any schools yet.

I know, it's been extremely stressful and I don't know what the issue is. I was waitlisted at Queen's last year with a lower LSAT (157). I would say I have a pretty strong ps, especially after having over a year to think through it again. I had a reduced course load in my last semester of Uni and then I took an extra summer to finish off my degree. But with that said my highest grades were in 2nd and 3rd year where I had a higher than normal course load so the B2 average should not be affected by that. Hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

Waiting for Winter grades to be released but will have a 3.5 cGPA, 3.91 L2, and a 164 LSAT. L2 was taken at full course load. What are my chances (access)?

There were only 66 people in the FB group last time I checked, so i think they have yet to send out some large batches. 

Do you know how big the class will be? :)

I believe normally it's just over 200, and the FB group only accepts people who have provisionally accepted or accepted. Last year there were 345 members in the FB group, but not sure if they only allowed provisionally accepted/accepted 1Ls at that time too. But it definitely points to lots more offers being sent out (hopefully) soon!

That's actually a really good point. There's only about 80 people in the group right now where previous years have 300+ people. I assume this will go up after the April 1st deadline, but still reassuring because several people might not accept their place after the deadline as well.

Wow, very interesting. Ryerson's facebook group only has 40 members last time I checked as well.

Ah yes, it is at 95 now. But that includes those who are simply interested in the program and those who only provisionally accepted there offer.

This wouldn’t apply to Ryerson but for a lot of other schools, I know that students in upper years also join those groups to message 1L students. For example, I am in the Queen’s Law ‘21 and ‘22 group.

Yep, I'm one of those 95 who only provisionally accepted (and they didn't add me when I asked to join until the day after I provisionally accepted haha).

The Western Law group which is for anyone accepted (not just those who have provisionally/firm accepted their place) has about 100 people in it right now where it typically has 400 in total. I assume the total # is so large because upper-year students are in there as well. If this is really the case I assume there are still many offers to go out. I feel crazy for doing this sleuthing haha. We'll see what happens. Let's try to remember that nothing is as it was in the past given this new COVID19 reality...

Admissions cycles make everyone go crazy, I don't blame you. Hoping there will be some movement soonnnnnnn 🤞

I got in a few cycles ago 3.61 CGPA, 3.9L2 and 156 LSAT

Yay thanks for that! I think if anything there will be some waitlist movement this year if I can get on that

Wondering about my chances as well .. Still haven't heard anything from Queen's. Any ideas?

cGPA = 3.72 

B2 / L2 (assuming I get what I expect to this semester) = 3.79

LSAT = 157

I would say Waitlist. If you had a slightly higher LSAT you would have a better chance.

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
