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’m confused by this statement. Why is OP’s testing conditions ( accommodations vs no accommodations) relevant? 
    • Given that the Feb 26th deadline is soon passing, when do you guys think the next wave will be?
    • This is true as well. I’m early twenties I always forget that haha. Thanks  
    • Nothing specific to add regarding your invitation from the committee, however, I read some interesting advice recently that I feel is applicable here. If Osgoode has taken the time to invite you for an interview, they're already hoping you're a candidate that will be a good fit. Put differently, they've read your application, feel you're a worthwhile candidate, and actively want the interview to go well. In my view, there's no reason to be concerned as long as you answer their questions candidly. I would wish you luck, but I sincerely believe you won't need it!
    • As someone who is also anxiously awaiting admissions I would say that some comforting things that have helped me with managing if I don't get in this year are that the average admissions age is 25-26 years. I obviously don't know your age, but for me this gave comfort as it meant if I do get rejected then I will take the time to invest it in relevant work experience and boosting my LSAT score without "falling behind" the general population in law school. While age doesn't really matter, it helped me rationalize that I am really young in comparison to other applicants and I should not take it as an insult/discouragement to spend the same amount of time they have taken to invest in getting into law school. Also, you can always transfer after 1L so if you dislike your school then you can always transfer!
