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

There was literally someone who got their acceptance on August 30th last year. Acceptances from the waitlist run late, still a little while to go yet

Sorry, I realized I probably posted in the wrong thread. 

I'm not on the waitlist. I haven't heard anything from UNB. No acceptance, decline or waitlist notification.  I'm wondering if there is anyone else in this position or if they missed my application somehow. I applied in October and it's now mid-July...

If you haven't heard anything at all since applying, you should try emailing or calling them. You're probably being waitlisted, but obviously nothing's guaranteed unless you hear it from them.

Maybe this is for another thread, but I was wondering if it's possible to defer on an offer if you were waitlisted first? I know deferrals are granted on a case by case basis, but wasn't sure if it's a for-sure "No" if you were accepted off the waitlist late.

No, you cannot defer. It says in the acceptance letters that the offer is only for the 2019-2020 academic year.

I heard absolutely nothing from UNB until Monday when I was placed on the waitlist so it’s not too outrageous that you haven’t heard anything yet.  If your situation is similar to mine it may actually be a good sign for you, after waiting all that time I was accepted 2 days after being put on the waitlist

Just to let everyone know: Wanda is out of office until Tuesday, so there won't be any waitlist movement before then.

Anyone still waiting on the non-maritime list? Also, if anyone is declining their offer, please post! Thanks!

Just got accepted off the waitlist, but will be declining. 3 weeks notice is not enough time to make the move out from BC and find pet-friendly accommodation. I didn't know my waitlist # so I didn't make any arrangements in advance. Too bad.

Would you mind posting your stats? (LSAT/GPA)

GPA 3.95/4, LSAT 151 in their post.

There is still one vacancy in the class enrollment.

What are your stats and when were you put on the wait-list?

I am (Vancouver). I know someone that got accepted off the waitlist for UNB last year on August 30th, but I'm sweating...

Getting close to that territory where I'll have to start looking for accommodation at my backup school just in case. It is what it is I guess.

    • Hey all, Was hoping for some input on this as I've seen contradictory things and could use some advice. I've lived in Ontario my whole life and for various reasons am going almost certainly going to want to practice in Ontario after I finish schooling. I am however sick and tired of this place, and would love to spend the three years of law school in the glorious place that is British Columbia. I'm 99% sure I have the grades/lsat to get into UBC, but is it advisable to go to school across the country from where I plan to practice? I luckily have some sort of network here in Ontario already (Friend's family has a close relationship with a firm that operates in the exact field of law I'll likely be practicing in) but I'd rather not rely on that and would like some input. Thanks in advance, sorry if this topic has been beaten to death but I'm either a moron or searching things is kinda hard here.  .
    • Hey guys! so unfortunately I was rejected to the schools I applied to for sept 2019 and will be re-applying. I am wondering if in my personal statement I should mention that I applied last year and what I have been doing since my last application that makes me different. Is it worth mentioning or would it be a red flag for admissions to read a personal statement that says I’ve already been rejected prior. Any info on this will help! Thanks guys!
    • Hi everyone, Today I have been opening up/ getting ready to open applications in 6 Canadian Law Schools, UVIC being one of them. I don't know why I expected there to be a place where they would ask for a resume/CV from me. But so far I haven't really seen such places on the applications I have opened. Is this normal? If so, do schools typically just want me to include all extra curricular/ achievements in my personal statement?  Don't know anyone else applying for Law school so any input is appreciated.  If needed for reference I am applying to UVIC, UBC, U of A, U of C, TRU, U of Sask. 
    • Thanks so much for the reply! That's good to know.
    • An A average on a dud candidate that doesn’t fit with the firm isn’t getting hired over the B average student with an infectious personality whom everyone loves.  An A average will assist with tied applicants between that particular student and a B+ student or anyone below that. It’s fairly intuitive. No one will or can provide advice as to exactly how much emphasis is being placed on what at each firm. It’s a contextual decision based on the students grades, personality, and how that meshes with the particular firm.
