Chances for Queen's after this semester?

I'm very surprised you haven't heard anything. Your stats are incredible. I imagine there was nothing wrong with your PS, was it tailored to Queen's?

I'm worried I won't be considered once my Winter grades come back now, if you haven't been accepted yet! I have similar stats (once grades come in): 3.5cGPA, 3.9 L2, 164 LSAT.

Maybe they’re late? I haven’t heard back yet either L2: 3.7x (84%) LSAT: 160

Perhaps they are late but the recent wave of acceptances makes me think otherwise. Praying for another round in Apil.

There is usually one at the end of April and one in mid-May.

Yes that is true. However, with this pandemic things may take a different route. In the past there were more waves before April 1st than there were this year. Hopefully they will have a few more waves before May.

That is very true! The best case scenario (maybe we should all choose to believe the best case scenario...) is that there is a backlog and we can't compare this year to others.

I did tailor it to Queens, but maybe not well enough? At this point I'm convinced there must be something wrong, even though I've re-read it and can't find anything, and even had a several law student friends of mine read it over too. Idk. I must have messed it up somehow. 

Admissions this year didn't start until 3-4 weeks after they've started in previous years, so that could indicate they were behind schedule since day one. Plus the COVID stuff..

Quite a few people have been admitted after their winter grades came in in past years. Since this admission cycle seems to be a bit slower, I'd assume that would still be the case

I was looking at old acceptance threads and noticed an odd trend.. it seems after the initial wave of April acceptances people with higher stats start getting in. It's weird, like the acceptances are reversed. Maybe those people with higher stats and perceived lower softs are deprioritized until the others reject/accept their place?

It might also be that they were waiting for their B2 from that semester, and they only became available in April

Speaking of which, do you know when your grades will be finalized and released for this semester? I've talked to my profs, and with the delays caused by the virus, they are saying that they probably won't be uploaded until the third or fourth week of April. I'm worried that may be too late.

I think mine will be uploaded by the 24th, but that's just a guess! So far admin has been pretty quick with finalizing grades that have already been uploaded by profs, but I don't finish exams until the 16th. I don't think that's too late, because usually when people get their grades in other years, they get them around the same time and still have to send them by mail, so realistically they aren't able to assess the new file until May. I think it'll be same situation for us, and maybe even a bit more wiggle room because not as many waves have gone out now as in previous years. 

Your stats are fantastic after this semester @capitalttruth, your time is coming!!

Your stats are below the medians for both GPA and LSAT, so it's not unusual that you haven't heard back yet - doesn't mean you for sure won't get in, I just wouldn't be worried about why you haven't been accepted yet for Queens. Hopefully you hear in the next wave!

My LSAT is 163 and B2 GPA is 3.67 and I've seen many others with lower stats get in

Oh oops I missed that your LSAT is 163, my bad! I think you'll be in soon then. Admissions are so hard to predict. It seems like there are a lot of people with great stats who haven't been admitted yet... idk what's going on there!

Has anyone heard anything recently? Hoping for another wave after offers expire for those accepted in early April.

I compared with last year and usually there was a wave the week following the previous wave's acceptance deadline, so I'm hoping this or next week!

    • 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!
