YES! The law school of my dreams has granted me an acceptance!!! I am excited beyond measure, and shocked that the offer arrived so early.

1. Overall GPA 4.19/4.3 (I have no idea what it would be with drops, and I'm not sure whether I qualify for them anyway)

2. LSATs: 158, 160

3. Average ECs 

4. Ontario resident with no New Brunswick connection

Unless some bizarre unforeseen circumstances arise, will be accepting

P.S. When I was in my last year of high school, a friend of mine and I were both applying to the same university for undergrad. He got a letter of acceptance quite early, but then another letter arrived shorty afterwards stating that the acceptance letter was a bureaucratic error. In the end, he did not get in. I hope law schools do not make mistakes like that :)

I'm also planning to accept the offer, UNB is where I was hoping for! And holy crap, I could not imagine having them say the acceptance was a mistake! Luckily I've never heard of that happening at law schools haha

I guess see you in Fredericton - and congratulations! And yes, I did think that law admissions offices should be more careful than their undergrad counterparts and do not do these kinds of frightening mess-ups - let's hope we won't be the first law students in Canada to experience it

I have not personally applied at UNB, but was the deadline also November 1st? 
If so, it seems awfully early to send in acceptances!

The deadline for UNB is actually March 1st, which makes it even crazier that acceptances start so early, but they do make it clear that the have a rolling acceptance system and that it's strongly recommended to apply early! Although if I hadn't looked into it so thoroughly, I wouldn't have realized quite how early they meant. I believe their website opens for applications in September, and for the past few years the first round of acceptances has gone out October 27th.

For those who have been accepted, were you given a deadline that you had to respond to the offer by? 

The "Response to Offer" form (enclosed together with the acceptance letter) - filled in with your positive response and the banking information UNB requires to collect the deposit from you - must be received by January 5th. If it is not, then you will be assumed to have declined the offer, so waiting till the last moment is probably not a good idea. I have e-mailed mine already.

Hey everybody, congrats on getting in so early!!! Must feel amazing!

I'm wondering if you could share how you converted your GPAs to the 4.3 scale. With drops, I know I've got 3.75 using the OLSAS conversion system. It's also 84% when I average percentages. Anyone know what that would be on 4.3? Thank you very much in advance.

EDIT: Nevermind I figured it out!

Hey CM709, I'm just wondering: is being from NL considered a connection to UNB? Would that be considered a "connection" that you mentioned in your application? Thanks in advance, and congrats on getting in!!

Hey Proflucas, thanks for the well wishes! In terms of my application and connection to UNB, I don't necessarily think that being from NL was all too relevant. I did my Commerce work term placements in a law firm here in NL with many of the lawyers at the firm being UNB Alumni. One of my references was a partner at the firm who was a UNB grad. This was the part of my application that I emphasized, not necessarily being from NL.
