Optional Documents Outstanding

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I submitted an application to UNB a while ago. I'm applying in the Regular Category so I am not submitting the Special Circumstances Document nor any Reference Letters. 

When I check my application status, my required documents (Resume, Personal Statement, and Transcripts) say Received. However, my optional documents (Special Circumstances Document and Reference Letters) say Outstanding. I was just wondering if there is anything I have to do or submit to indicate that I will not be uploading the optional documents. This is because I do not want them to wait for the optional documents to begin assessing my file as I do not intend to upload the optional documents. 

Alternatively, has anybody that has been accepted (without uploading the optional documents) had to do anything to indicate that they were not going to upload the optional documents.

Thanks in advance.

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!

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!

I actually JUST emailed Wanda about this, I'll let you know what she says! (I applied both regular and special circumstances, but only because I'm 31, and I feel like that's reflected in my resume and PS and doesn't require any additional documentation haha)

EDIT: She wrote back and said don't worry about it

    • I started off taking handwritten notes, as I've done it throughout my undergrad/postgrad. I will say that taking notes on a laptop is vital because law is different than many other fields (esp. the arts). 1. You will need to take notes on a lot of cases, and there is specific wording all the time that you may not have time to write down. If you only take handwritten notes, you will find yourself writing more than 4 pages of notes per lecture - good luck organizing them all. By the time midterms came around in my first sem, I had over 100 pages of notes and making them into outlines was a nightmare. 2. Almost every class has participation marks. There is no way you're going to be able to answer consistently fast enough (everyone's gonna have their hands up by then) if you're not able to CTRL+F notes from the previous week.  3. Mentioned this already but you need to make outlines - absolutely critical for exams. You're going to waste a lot of time typing your handwritten notes into word files. Also, when you have over 100 pages of notes you tend to misplace a page,  which can really ruin the flow of your notes. Now there are some programs you can use to turn notes into word files, but good luck writing legibly enough for the program to read when you're writing so fast.  Now maybe you've watched the paper chase and think, "hey if harvard students from the 70s can take handwritten notes so can I". Well, that was when there was a level playing field where everyone took handwritten notes. Now, things have changed and if you dont believe me, you can give it a try.

    • You’ve already asked about this today. And honestly, since what you’re really getting at is how much lawyers tend to work in a day, the question was pretty much answered in the other threads you’ve started recently. Many lawyers work quite a bit. The answer isn’t going to change depending on how or how many times you ask the question.
