Seats Remaining

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Is there any way to tell how many seats have been filled so far? I’m wondering if the final wave has started yet. (It seems from past years’ threads that acceptances past March were few and far between...)

At least 90 by now.. 

UNB's first year class size is 92.

So is it full already?

I would SERIOUSLY doubt this. UNB Is known for accepting a substantial number of people off the wait list as late at July/August.

Source: was accepted off the waitlist in July last year.

I SERIOUSLY doubt why UNB put people on wait list if there are spots not filled....

Until someone rejects their offer, all the spots are filled until then.

It seems waitlist emails start in May/June, and discretionary reviews begin in March.  Although not sure what will happen this year, given the university has shut down with the exception of essentials.

This is helpful thank you - so would you say being accepted as a Regular applicant at this point is unlikely unless you are waitlisted?

It's hard to say.  If they do not receive adequate responses under discretionary, then they could move back to regular applicants.  But I'm guessing at this process. :)

My deadline to accept my offer is April 3, I assume it is the same for others. It would be hard to tell how many spots are left before people are forced to decide.

I know last year people were accepted as late as may not off the waitlist, but there were some delays last year with acceptances as someone was out with an injury iirc. With the shut down right now I could definitely see longer delays. Best of luck to anyone waiting to hear back!

    • Hmmm. I wonder is that means that Edmonton is less competitive in a way? I know a few people from Bond who are working as they normally would. Similar road as any other person with an international degree. Although all three are working at private firms, no big firms.  I have also heard that local people get precedent. Chatting on this thread again just makes me happy I wrote the lsat and am going the normal route. Although everyone's path is different.   
    • I don't really know about the variance in culture, but it's possible that more rural locations might be getting more local applicants, whereas the bigger cities are getting applicants from all across Canada. If your firm is getting applicants from all of the "top" Canadian law schools, someone who went to Bond probably starts off lower down the rankings during recruitment. Whereas a smaller town might have had the vast majority of its applicants go to local law school X.  I love the Gold Coast and wish I had gone to school there, but I've had about a half dozen friends go to law school at Bond and they all went because they couldn't get into a Canadian law school, so the assumption that employers make isn't without merit. All of my friends have had a tough time finding employment after they've returned to Vancouver, and their job outcomes have ranged from articling at small firms in the suburbs to doing an LLM at UBC to make themselves more competitive for bigger firms to being hired as a contract lawyer by a large firm.
    • Thanks for the comment! I asked a friend in Calgary and she said the same thing as you! So potentially they feel the same in Calgary. Do you think there is a variance in culture maybe? It would be interesting to see what the response is in Saskatoon for example. Or even more rural where it might be less competitive.  I've definitely heard it described as a "backdoor" way of going to law school. Although, it's more work so not really sure it it is worth it. But I know some people just go because they want to live in Australia and don't mind tacking on the extra time. Expensive though.   
    • Hello, everyone in BC please email Law Society (Member Services) if you have been affected due to COVID-19, I have sent them 3 emails till now, and haven't received a reply. Please email them so they take some kind of action. 
    • it might be difficult in general for you to switch to in house though, covid or not. Boutique litigation doesn’t really lend well to that
