I received an email this morning informing me that I have been placed on the waitlist and asking me to confirm whether I'd like to keep my spot there. Like last year, they're not telling people where they rank on the list.

NL resident. PM me if you'd like to know my stats.

I also got that email today. Bummed that I can't know what position I am on the waitlist, as I'm supposed to sign a lease this week in Victoria. I would hold off if I thought I had a good chance, but I have no way of knowing.

Joined the waitlist yesterday and my status was updated today! Hopefully there’s some movement soon. 😁

There is a pile of waitlist emails that will be sent out next week. Just an FYI. Don’t lose hope and have a nice weekend.

Do you mean offers to join the waitlist? Or offers of admission to those on the waitlist? :)

How do you know? I still haven't had my status change beyond "Thank you for your completed application" so I'm hoping I'm one of those who gets an email next week if that's the case.

I was told this. I never post things unless it’s directly from a source in the admissions office. :) fingers crossed for you. 

And your status will only change once you accept the offer of being added onto the waitlist via email. The waitlist is not ranked at this time. This is all that I was informed of today. Hope that helps!

I guess if it's not ranked yet, there's no reason to think that the handful of us who were waitlisted on the 17th will be higher on the list than those who haven't been emailed yet, huh?

Tbh I feel like they will go with the order that people were waitlisted in. But that’s my opinion and not rooted in fact, simply a gut feeling.

Yeah, that seems to be the pattern from previous years, I'm just trying not to get my hopes up.

I received the email asking me whether to join the waitlist last week. After some consideration I decided to withdraw my application.

Best of luck to everybody on the waitlist!

Got the email yesterday about joining the waitlist, so I guess they're still adding to it, which perhaps means there's some movement left. Does UNB release rankings for the waitlist?

They don't provide rankings, according the email I got.

Quote

Your application has been placed on the summer waitlist.  Applicants on the list will be contacted should a position become available for September 2019.  We are not providing waitlist position numbers.  When a seat becomes available, you will be contacted by e-mail.  Can you please confirm that you would like to remain on the waitlist?

If we do not hear from you, your application will be withdrawn.  All documents will be kept on file for one year should you wish to reapply next year. 

I'm just wondering if the email you got was worded differently and if there might be hope of getting our rankings.

No there doesn't appear to be. The email I got was about if I wanted to join the waitlist, then on my file this morning it said pretty much what you just posted. Does anyone know how many people typically get accepted from the waitlist for UNB? I know their class size is smaller than other schools.

Offered to join the waitlist today, but have asked to have my application withdrawn as I have already accepted elsewhere, good luck to those still waiting!

Has anyone else not heard anything. No acceptance, decline or waitlist and it's mid-July?

    • Thanks for taking the time to answer my previous question. I may be applying this cycle and have a question with regards to the Sketch part of the application. When I previously applied to Law School I added every little volunteer/extracurricular from the time I entered University. For simplicity purposes, I wanted to retain only the last 3-4 years of relevant experience. Would this be a problem for an individual that had more sketch items in a previous application 1-2 years ago? For example some activities are not included at all whereas they were on a previous application?  And just for the sake of knowing I guess, would you have access to and look back at a previous application if you were assessing a candidate?  
    • No, I think the bias is good because it makes whiny conservatives like you fill your diaper. Your first thought on hearing the Prime Minister did something racist was run to bump an old thread to try and score points for your “team”, because to you the racism isn’t really the issue, it’s just an opportunity to poke a lib in the eye.
    • I don't think that people are necessarily laughing at the essence of what you are saying.  What you are saying isn't completely crazy.  The pace at which you are suggesting this will all happen is likely, in part, what they are doubting.  The reactions may also be partly attributed to the fact that you haven't (I don't think?) actually practiced law at this point. I just don't think the legal profession will be completely revolutionized as imminently as your comments suggest.  While I (and probably others) can appreciate arguments that computers will replace certain functions currently done by humans and that some of Ryerson's tech-forward training could be helpful (if well executed), I think it will take time to get there.  While I do appreciate the need for lawyers to have more technical skills and to better integrate technology into law schools (whatever that means...I'm old), I don't understand how this translates to what seems to be your critique of the substance of law school (i.e. what is taught not the way it is taught).  I do think that law school, especially 1L, should continue to include the case reading, making legal arguments, etc. that you seem to criticize, both because I can't imagine a scenario where humans interacting with AI technology don't need a baseline level of knowledge of the law and because I don't think these changes are going to come all that quickly.  It is also pretty absurd to claim that summaries from 2003 are "the same".  75% the same?  Sure.  But actually the same?  Doubtful.  Even if they were "the same", that doesn't demonstrate that law school curricula are dated or make them irrelevant.  If that is the current state of the law, then that is the current state of the law.
    • Agreed. Also I’m at UBC (where OP also seems to attend) and I’ve had several recruiters at big firms tell me, unprompted, that we have a great CSO that understands exactly what the firms want. Probably since our CSO people have worked at large firms.  Just wanted to add that since I don’t think it’s helpful for OP to go down the path of thinking an incompetent CSO was his or her issue. 
    • Okay since I am getting laughs here. Fine, here's a fairly "primitive" model of how natural language processing algorithm can be used. Read this, its an open-source Python library designed for building legal tech software: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3192101 This is an easier to digest thing describing how AI is reshaping law.  https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3381798
