Others who are accepted, when did you apply?

I know they accept in order of applications, so I'm wondering if I should apply soon. I was never planning on UNB because I always wanted something in Ontario. But I've applied to 4 Ontario schools, and am thinking about UNB since it seems to be a bit easier

LSAT 155 (really messed up that day)
GPA round 78%/lower 80s depending

I applied last week, just wondering how you guys were notified when accepted. When I login it says my application was successfully admitted, just wondering if they email or how you check.

Not sure if this helps, but for last year's application cycle, Wanda sends an acceptance e-mail (and the status will also change to 'accepted into program' on the online application system).

For those of you who have been accepted, did you send in three reference letters along with your application?

Just wondering, because it has been hell getting my reference letters in.

 

The first one got lost by UNB's internal mail system, although it did make it through on the second try. I have no idea what's happened to the other two, as they were sent weeks ago, and then resent by email a week and a half ago.

My application has been marked as "not reviewed" in the grad apply system and I think that's why being as everything else has been marked as complete.

My reference letters went through to all my other schools seamlessly, so it would be nice to know what's going on, although I know people on lawstudents.ca can't help me with that.

UNB doesn't require references so I doubt they would hold up reviewing your application, unless you told them there were reference letters to be included with your application and they are waiting for them.

 

Also, your status will stay as not reviewed until you get either accepted or rejected. There is no middle ground. When I got in a couple of years ago I went to bed not reviewed and woke up to "Accepted into program" and an e-mail from Wanda.

not so great. Get that lsat up to 160 and you should get an acceptance.

I got accepted today however, I want to think on my options/wait for other acceptances to come in before choosing a school.  Did you guys reply immediately?  Also, when do you hear about possible entrance scholarships?

I haven't given a response yet.  I believe most people hold off in deciding to crunch numbers, look into different cities, wait on scholarships offers, etc.

 

I am unsure about scholarships but perhaps email Wanda? She has been great in getting back to my emails.

Thanks for the advice, I just wasn't sure what the protocol was for acceptance emails.  Whether I should send a "thank you very much for the offer" email or just wait till I make my final decision.

Often they'll give a date that you need to respond by and then you can get in the game of paying deposits waiting for your #1 to come through!  Still probably nice to respond by saying "thanks" - no need to send a deposit until the date indicated however
