  1. Mission vs Kensington (Where to live)

    Hey! I've lived in Mission and loved it, but Kensington is definitely the most convenient for getting to school. It is also really vibrant with lots of other students living there, shops, restaurants, etc. Mission is great, but not being by the train makes it more difficult to get to school. I live in Marda Loop and love it -- given that the 20 goes directly to the school I would say it's even more convenient than Mission. But you can't beat Kensington for convenience. Mission is closer to 17th ave which is where there's a lot of bar patios and nightlife, so that is a benefit. I found living there for a few years, I got to know a lot of the regulars that were also in their 30s and it had a real community feel. That said, I am sure Kensington has a similar community spirit. I'll also add that both have really lovely parks and access to the river so are great for long walks when you need study breaks -- it's not all about the nightlife! Quality of life is so affected by the area you live in, so you're right to try to pick out the right area for you Also the Safeway is better in Kensington if that matters to you

    A colleague of mine just told me that he did interview at DLA, but I hadn't heard of anyone else. I think it was a small crowd. Also, just answered my own question, but others may want to know -- the Crown has sent out second interviews.

    It was my understanding that NRF doesn't do any ITCs, according to some summer students and the career office. Someone definitely correct me if I'm wrong.

    Exactly the information I was looking for! Thank you very much

    Does anyone know the amount of 2Ls Norton Rose Calgary usually hires? I have a good idea of how many articling students they have year to year, but I'm not sure how many of those were from a 1L pool. Any information is appreciated!
  15. Fair, I may be a super-nerd for thinking some of my classes actually were super fun in first year Good to know about tax! I was thinking of taking it next year, so I am glad it is interesting. Thanks for the tips!
