Accepted to UNB 2021

erinl2

As we have done in previous cycles, we ask that you keep the Accepted threads clear of extraneous discussion. 

Please list your cgpa, L2, B3, index score, etc., LSAT score, and how you were notified. Please keep questions to - asking about these particular details if they are not in the post itself.  Other posts will be deleted so as to keep these threads useful and easy to navigate.

Thank you and good luck to all!

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.

This is very early! Were you also required to confirm acceptance earlier than usual? Just wondering because if the deadline to confirm is also really early it can affect whether other offers can be considered in the interim. Thanks,

My deadline for accepting or refusing the offer is January 15th. Not sure if that's earlier than those who have received offers later, but it seems that other schools sending out offers give a later deadline

Thanks...that is what I was afraid of.  That potentially opens up a whole other can of worms.  I have applied to schools in Ontario and do not expect to hear anything there (if at all) until fall marks are in.  So, if successful at UNB or DAL and they have firm deadlines it may get dicey.  I guess we will see.  Btw, did UNB mention scholarships at all in your acceptance letter?

Apperantly scholarship offers will be sent out by Wanda in the next few weeks. 

 I've read in another thread that some people accept offers from schools outside Ontario but later reneg and accept an Ontario offer. Not advocating for it or even confirming it's possible, but that is what I've read.

Thanks! My only concern there would be that Ontario schools would be made aware of it and consider the applicant as already committed.  It's unfortunate timing in that case I guess, but it is what it is.

People, please read the banner at the top of the page and keep the discussion of extraneous factors either in a new thread or via PM. Thanks.

False - accepting an offer will not notify other schools. However, it’s perhaps more equitable and most certainly ethical to withdraw your applications upon accepting an offer.

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
