Accepted to UNB 2021

Recommended Posts

This seems... very early, but I got an email today from Wanda stating that I've been accepted into 2021. Of all the law schools I've applied to, this is my first one to get back to me and to have it be an acceptance is definitely pretty exciting. October 8th seems early, though. Do they do some kind of rolling admissions? It'd be interesting if they do considering the small class sizes.

My degree isn’t complete until May. I believe being a Maritime resident gives you a strong advantage at UNB and lead to my early acceptance.

May I ask when you applied? 

I applied towards the end of August/beginning of September 

For reference: 3.83/4.3 L2 (not sure about drops), 162 LSAT. Nova Scotia resident with no connection to New Brunswick. I'm in my fourth year, and graduate next May.

Most schools I've applied to look at your grades for your first three years (or best three, or last two, or whatever it may be), and then ask for you final transcripts as they become available. I know UNB and Dal have accepted people without full degrees, and it appears that its the norm rather than the exception

Current UNB 3L - I finished my undergrad in the summer semester before going to law school in September, it definitely happens.

Please note: Doing this will make you incredibly paranoid all summer that you will somehow fail a bullshit elective and completely crush your law school dreams.

I just received my acceptance email from UNB Law for the 2021-2022 academic year! I applied a few weeks ago with a 152 LSAT, 4.1/4.3 GPA after they dropped my worst 25%, 5 strong letters of reference (which are optional), and I am a resident of New Brunswick. I have a somewhat unique background as I also went to college for Paralegal/Legal Admin and have worked as a Paralegal for over three years. I feel as though my experience compensated for my slightly low LSAT score. Good luck to all of those who have applied or will be applying! 😊

Also, I apologize for starting a separate forum, I didn’t know what I was doing haha.

Congratulations!! 

Did you apply access? Just wondering because of the 5 strong letters of reference.

    • I did the Vancouver recruit and my experience is that they won't necessarily make eye contact either. Some of my interviewers we using two devices so they weren't looking at me most of the time. One set of interviewers didn't even have their camera on. Then there are the ones that are new to the platform and don't know how to let you in, or have sound issues, or were tuning in on their phone, or from a large board room, or whatever. All this is to say, don't worry too much about eye contact.
    • I know Ultra Vires publishes a piece on the U of T recruit + grades every year (I’ve actually helped work on it in the past), but it’s always acknowledged that the survey can be quite biased/not totally representative for many reasons, plus it’s just a bunch of anonymous numbers without personal context. As such, if anyone has any anecdotal experience with grades/OCIs from U of T, insight would be appreciated! Personally, my 1L grades were probably pretty below average (fingers crossed for better success this term!), although it’s tough to determine what “average” means at U of T and how employers look at our grades. On the other hand, I’d like to think I have a pretty extensive amount of relevant work/volunteer/extracurricular experience, so I’m truly not sure how I’ll fare. 
    • Ah, I was under the assumption that this was a one-off or maybe a two-off. On the one hand, what's another W if you already have a lot? On the other hand, not having any more W's supports your upward trend. On the third hand, if you take your licks and accept the poor midterm mark, you can still technically have an upward trend. Upward trends involve minor fluctuations, getting one bad mark doesn't undo the entire trend.  If you're not applying in the general category (as opposed to access), then I would keep the grade to demonstrate that you've overcome the things that made you withdraw from courses earlier in your degree. If you're applying access, take the W if you can explain the aspects of your life that necessitated withdrawing.  FWIW, I had poor marks in 1st/2nd year but my grades trended upwards as I continued. I still had some awful marks in my last 2 years, but they didn't undo the fact that overall I was clearly a better student than I used to be.
    • Aside from the loophole and the LR bible, I have barely touched any other material. Please send me any offers if you're interested!
