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.

    • 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
