Would 8 courses in the fall semester be considered as a Best year?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

Im taking 8 courses for the upcoming fall semester, and was wondering if that would be considered as an academic year according to queens law admissions.

Perhaps someone was in a similar situation as I was in this forum.

If not, I can call them to ask, thanks!

Schools now allow 8 courses in a semester? ! Wow. Back in the day when I was in undergrad, you had to have special permission to take 6.

if you do well enough in your last semester with a heavy courseload, yes. You still need the permission from the dean of your program though.

Then again, my school isn't really known for its academic prowess, so it's possible that they just dont care

I’m pretty sure queens cares about number of credits, not number of courses. The acceptable per term range is 14-17 credits. You need special permission to go above or below that number. So if you take 8- 1 or 2 credit courses you’ll be fine 😂. 8 3 credit courses pushes you to dangerous territory

I called them about this a while ago. The answer is yes, Queens considers 4 courses per semester a full load (or 12 credits). You just need to make sure that doing only 4 each semester would satisfy all your degree requirements for graduation.

I think what OP wants to know is if taking 8 courses in one semester be considered as a year (2 semesters)

That's ok I don't think Queens will buy that anyway.

    • a. You should have or will receive soon an email that has the links, but basically, for the exam itself you will need access to the LawHub site (you can find it off LSAC's site) and ProctorU. You can check all your technical requirements on ProctorU once LSAC has sent you an email with your username and password. Anything you need for the test (ex. ID) is also listed on the LSAC site. b. LawHub has a couple practice exams that will be in the exact same format as the real one. This is the site you'll take the actual exam on, ProctorU is just for security.  c. You can do Writing up to a week earlier than your actual test, and then you have a window of a year afterward to do it. But you need it on file to apply for schools and it takes 2 - 3 weeks to process. Your LSAC account has a practice Writing space to use (the "Get Acquainted" button). You'll need to download a different security software than the one used for the exam. (EDIT: Lots of people have trouble getting the Writing software to work, so don't panic if it won't open for you on the first try. You can also redo Writing without needing to redo the LSAT.)
    • Hi, For all of you guys who have already taken the test, I have a couple of questions in relation to LSAT Flex (I am registered to take it in August) a. What are the steps that I need to take in order to be ready for taking LSAT Flex (i.e. what software to download,  what documents to prepare, is there a web connection that I can/need to test, is there a way to check and certify that I am ready to take the test from a technical perspective, etc.) b. Is there a way to take a "fake" LSAT flex under real-like exam conditions (including all the steps that I need to undertake at a.)? c. When can/should I write the LSAT writing test, before or after taking LSAT Flex? Is it the same setup like for the LSAT Flex? Will I write my writing sample on a computer in a special editor or in an editor of my choosing (i.e. MS Word)? If it is a special editor, is there a way to get acquainted with this editor, does it have spell check and formatting (or is it more like Notepad)? I would not want to have any surprises/scramble to install stuff on my computer on exam day, if at all possible.   Thanks a bunch!
    • For what it’s worth, I interviewed at a mid size municipality outside the GTA last year as a 5 year call. The questions were quite general if I recall:  “describe a situation where you” type stuff and mostly not substantive in nature. Knowledge of municipal or planning wasn’t a large factor in their hiring decision but they did ask some basic questions to get an idea of your level of knowledge.    
    • I was accepted with stats almost identical to yours (3.7 cGPA [3.72 with final winter term marks] and 158 LSAT). Though I was not waitlisted, I recieved my offer of admission later in the cycle during the last large wave of acceptances. Take care when preparing your personal statement and sketch, as well as when selecting those who will write your reference letters and you will have a legitimate shot at an offer from Osgoode- especially if you are able to improve your LSAT a few percentile points. 
    • Holy smokes, that's very intense. You should be very proud of yourself. 167 is an amazing score! Did Mike Kim's Trainer help you?
