Question regarding Admissions for this cycle (3.83, 159)

Recommended Posts

First my Stats:

Highest LSAT : 159

Average lsat: 156.3 (155, 159, 155, and re writing in Oct)

OLSAS GPA B2: 3.83

QUESTION: I have been told that Queen's (My top choice) ranks applications by AVERAGE LSAT. For me this means my Average LSAT of a 156.3 - WHICH IS BELOW THE CUT OFF FOR ACCEPTANCE (157) at least at queens. Even though my highest LSAT is a 159 I am guessing my application will be viewed towards the very last of the files most likely after all the seats are filled. I dont want to speculate but I have heard that with covid19 and the economic slug it is predicted applications will increase so they prob won’t even look at my application. Any thoughts from actual Queens people/staff/ students on my chances.

Queens used to order files by cGPA (maybe it changes to B2 now) and average LSAT score although they admit applicants by their B2 and highest LSAT score.

What is your cGPA?

Your B2 is high. If your cGPA is also high you may still get reviewed early since they sort files with B2 (and cGPA) and average LSAT combined.

Unfortunately my cGPA is not great despite my B2. It’s somewhere around a 3.30. I like your username but I think my faith is sealed then

Op GPA and B2 is 3.83 the same? is it per OLSAS?

Yes the B2 of 3.83 is per OLSAS scale. Though different from my cGpa which is around a 3.30.

Do you have any reasons for lower grades in other years?

Not really. I was taking courses that were mandatory and not specialized course which I liked. However, I greatly improved and had all A range grades at a full course load in my last and best 2 years for my honours degree. I also was heavily involved in student life in the first two years which chipped away at my academics but I got better at time management in the last 2 years as well.

OK

 

So am I still in good chances despite my low average LSAT and potential for having my application viewed towards the very end? Thanks again. BTW I have great softs so maybe that's worth a dime

Apply broadly. Western, Ottawa, Calgary, UNB, etc. not just Queens.

Dude you're fine. I got in with 157 (highest score) and my average lsat was 155. Ranks just tell you in what order they're going to view your file. You have a pretty good chance of getting in, based on your b2 and lsat.

    • I've seen this so many times and it's a terrible thing to deal with. Put yourself before what your parents want. I'm glad you're choosing to look at other options. I was a science student, and in my first year became good friends with a girl who absolutely hated it. Her parents were pushing hard for her to be a doctor and all her good friends were straight A students in our program. Ultimately, after two years, she switched to a computer science/web design program. She loved it and is now incredibly successful and happy. But it required putting herself first.
    • Sorry I was really defensive there. I'm pretty stressed right now. The midterm was unfortunately worth 40% so it will definitely bring down my average and stop the 'upward trend' I'm trying to achieve. I struggled with personal problems in my first few years of uni and have a bunch of Ws on my transcript and low grades from that time, hence the very bad cGPA. That's what concerns me about adding another at the end of my transcript. But I think a low grade might be even worse. I did research on this forum and found a guy who dropped a course first semester but overloaded the next. Stuck between a rock and a hard place at the moment.
    • So I contacted my university and they said to list the coordinator for my program. 
    • I know an incredibly successful lawyer who has a degree in musical theory. He played the piano at some ridiculous level during undergrad.  Others here have Theatre majors, English majors, Women’s Studies majors, Forestry Management majors, Geography majors, Anthropology majors, French majors, History majors.... and all of them got into law school. Sciences might be your interest and/or comfort zone, but there is no magic degree to be competitive. Keep that in mind. 
    • Drop it if you cannot get at least a B+. You still have 4 courses, correct? That will still be considered full course load.
