I would say I had a pretty strong personal statement!

What is the acceptance deadline people have received? Just wondering when there will be some more movement.

My deadline is the 12th, but my understanding is that the first big deadline for Ontario schools is April 1st-ish so there should be some offers around then.

My understanding is that everyone has different deadlines. Usually 3 weeks after they're accepted

Just got my acceptance for the discretionary section!! Newfoundland student with no ties to NB. 

LSAT: 172 

GPA: 2.7 overall on the 4.0 scale, unsure what I am on their scale but I think I'm around a 3.1-3.3 with drops. I also did an exchange in the fall in Prague where I got 6 European transfer credits with all A's, MUN didn't take it so I'm unsure if UNB did or not. 

L2: 3.3 not looking at this semester

Applied in discretionary because I have ADHD and some of my grades have been less than impressive until the last few semesters. I had a really strong statement of reasoning/personal statement and really good references 

I have until April 19th to accept, I will be accepting!

    • Alright.... let's all take a breath and stop the dogpile I can see coming. If anyone has anything constructive left to say please do. OP, you asked for advice and you're getting it. Take what you want and leave the rest but don't throw matches unless you want a flame war.
    • I will never understand why people who explicitly ask for advice from STRANGERS ON THE INTERNET are then confused/shocked when people tell them things they don't want to hear.    I can sympathize with you to an extent. Your situation reminds me a lot of things I've had to deal with.  I'm an immigrant and I had immense pressure put on me by my very old-school family on numerous occasions when I had to make life-altering decisions. I can't even count the number of arguments we had about my undergrad and pursuing law. In the end, I had to make the decisions that were best for me, and while that can be a tough pill to swallow for your parents (especially for super traditional eastern europeans like mine), you have to do it for yourself. Realistically your parents aren't going to be around forever. Then what? You've wasted a huge chunk of your life pursuing something that maybe your heart wasn't even 100% in. That's a way bigger bummer to me than some familial disagreements.  Realizing what you want vs what your family wants was something that took me a VERY long time to negotiate, but I'm glad I came to the realization sooner rather than later.  One last thing - barring other "hardships" you've made vague references to - you need to realize how extremely fortunate you are to even be in the position you are in. You're 25 years old, your parents are paying for your schooling, and you have to **gasp** decide between Law and Medicine. 
    • Dude. Cut it out. Practice what you preach. I get it, sometimes people say things online that you don't like, but you have to be prepared for that when you post. Like or dislike the wording, you asked for opinions, you are getting opinions. Responding to criticisms with attacks is not the way to go.
    • You're a 25 year-old undergrad whose parents have paid (and will continue to pay) for your entire education. At some point, you need to detach yourself from familial expectations and start defining your own identity. That can be painful to hear -- it was for me -- but it's part of growing up. Your parents won't be there to live your life for you.  I get it, it sucks to have someone tell you that you haven't made the best decisions. Up to a certain point, your first instinct is to defend those decisions and lash out at the people who are offering you advice because they just haven't been in your shoes! Resist that urge and listen to them - they're giving you that advice precisely because they've been in your shoes. 
    • Wanting to make ones parents happy is not immature, and not the sole motivating factor for me. You do not know anything about me besides what I have typed in this thread. I have had to make serious life decisions and overcome hardships which is part of the reason I started my undergrad degree at age 20 as opposed to you who seems to find it important to brag about finishing law school at my age. You're an incredibly arrogant person and probably a testament to fact that narcissism is on the rise in Western society.
