  1. 1Ls are kind of partitioned off from the rest of the school because of the cohorts and 1L classes. BUT, the upper years make a very active effort to get to know the 1L class and to get them involved through EC's, sports, mentoring, parties, etc. If you put in enough face time with the upper years, you may get a lot more help (in more ways than one) than you'd anticipate!
  2. Dalhousie vs. TRU

    Also FWIW, pretty sure (anecdotally and looking at big firm websites) TRU has placed decently well in Vancouver, at least for the last year or two. There will be 2-3 more recruit cycles worth of grads in the market by the time your recruit cycles roll along. Just something to think about.
  3. @StudentLife I don't have much love for the faculty administration, but you're turning this thread into a negative one bashing the faculty as a whole, like you have with countless others. I get that you don't like the school, but there's no need to be so biased. Factually, you're probably correct on a bunch of points. It's your interpretation and your sanctimonious air of "I know best" that I'm cautioning against. People can take or leave it as they like, I don't give a shit.
  4. For future readers: do your due diligence and check this person's post history. Proceed with caution taking this person's word as gospel. he/she/zhe/whatever has an axe to grind with U of A Law.

    no idea, didn't dig too deep. giving up hope on the ones i haven't heard from and focusing on the ones i have heard from seems to be the best thing to do at this point...

    I know someone who's gotten a call from the City of Calgary. No idea about DOJ.

    Field Edmonton has started

    nope I'm still holding out for both. Also, in no way am I suggesting with my posts that I've received interviews at all those places.

    gettin' close to the wire folks! McLeod Law and Field Calgary have started.
  12. 2018/19 Calgary/Edmonton Articling Recruit

    Our CDO sent out an email yesterday saying the "reviewed" flag on viLawPortal has been buggy. FWIW, Field reviewed my app on the 18th or 19th.
