As we have done in previous cycles, we ask that you keep 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 found 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!

Ironic that I was complaining about Schulich sending irrelevant emails just the other day... now they send a very relevant email :)))))))))) Just got an email saying that I'm accepted, felt I should open up this thread.

Thanks all :) I sent in the application itself around the beginning of September, but it wasn't complete until the beginning of October when my second reference sent in my letter. My L2 is ~3.83 (haven't done the math recently) with two writes for the LSAT: first was 162, second was 160 (Flex can bite me). I'm also a born and raised Haligonian, so my maritime connection is pretty strong.

Congrats Frazer 99! Can I ask when you heard from Dalhousie about your file being complete and entering assessment? Trying to get an idea of potential timeline. Thanks!

Thanks :) My application was considered complete pretty much right in the middle of October (the 15th), although I never got anything explicitly saying that my file was being assessed like I've read about with other applicants. Either way, if you apply before the early admissions deadline it seems like there's about a month and a half between when its considered complete and when you get a decision? Not sure how it would be later in the cycle, because I made sure to apply as early as humanly possible. Not sure if this is helpful/answers your question :)

Yes thats helpful thank you!! My file was complete end of October and I got emailed today saying it is being accessed so I just wasn't sure if there was a correlation with timing! Thanks for responding and congrats again!

    • I haven’t been accepted yet, but I’m chiming in to say that I also didn’t upload optional documents except for letters of rec. Mine also shows outstanding but that’s just because I just didn’t upload anything there. I wouldn’t worry since it says optional. If all your required docs have been uploaded I would think it’s all okay!
    • Ahoy Captain,  I was accepted to UNB this cycle without uploading optional documents. I was not required to do anything to indicate that I was not submitting those documents. That being said, I do not remember if there was ever a note on my file saying my optional documents were outstanding. If you are really worried about it, Wanda and the rest of the admissions team are extremely friendly and helpful so I would recommend sending them a quick email to make sure there hasn’t been a mix up.  Best of luck!
    • Getting rejected with those stats doesn't make sense. Maybe not holistic enough? Anyway, off to a better school...hopefully a much better school.
    • Here is the link: https://law.udmercy.edu/admissions/admission-requirements/online-status.php
    • ^ What FingersCr0ssed said... but here is my take - very few students have a law related job after 1L. There is a 1L recruit where a limited number of firms hire students. This recruit is heavily focused on your 1L grades.  - UVIC has a co-op program, so UVIC students are somewhat more likely to find law related 1L summer jobs. Usually in a small firm or government office. Hiring for these jobs is generally more holistic than formal recruits. - otherwise you might secure a position with a small law firm, but this isn't a big deal. Try to find something interesting to do - whether that's work, volunteer, travel, or whatever interests you and will make you a more  well-rounded applicant in the future. Many people I went to school with needed and could afford a break and travelled after 1L. Others worked their pre-law jobs in order to save money. There is no wrong way to do the 1L summer, except doing nothing. - In 2L there is a formal recruit that many of your classmates will participate in it starts with On Campus Interviews (OCIs), so when you hear about OCIs this is related. These jobs typically lead to an articling position after 3L , but are not the only way to secure an articling position. You'll want good grades and interesting experience on your application. Having experience traveling, working for something pandemic related, etc. will give you more to talk about than a front desk position at a law firm.  Basically, the best thing you can do right now is something interesting and that you enjoy. Once you're in law school focus on getting good grades. If you can network with people working where you want to work do that, but know it will mostly be for information purposes and probably won't actually lead to a job..
