  1. 2018 2L Recruitment

    (Apologies if this is not an appropriate place to ask this) I am curious to know if 2L OCI summer jobs generally result in articling offers. I have heard many students say that articling is essentially 'guaranteed,' so long as you don't burn the house down. Assuming that you are a competent student, perform well, etc ... can it be reasonably expected that firms will invite you back for articling? Does this differ between large and small firms (Toronto OCI firms only)? I am particularly interested in the experience with the smaller OCI firms. If the answer is no, what is the etiquette surrounding the articling recruit?

    Kinda need a quick answer on this: when do appointments usually end on Wednesday? As in: when is too late to be suggesting appointment times with people? Thanks!
  3. What are in-firm interviews like?

    Sorry - just saw this now. But no, its not. Good luck!
  4. 2018 2L Recruitment

    Any advice re: how to respond to questions like: are we your first choice; can we count on you to accept an offer, etc? - does this happen as often as the rumour mill alleges?
  5. What are in-firm interviews like?

    Does this advice only hold true for 'larger' firms - some boutiques indicated that interviews only go for 1 hour (or as low as 20 minutes, in one case). I scheduled accordingly. Was this a mistake? Will I be shocked to discover that these are actually far longer than this?
  6. In-Firm Interview Schedule

    What do people advise regarding taking two firms that host overlapping receptions? Running between them seems crazy (albeit not impossible) - is not attending one something that can be done without permanently damaging your chances? Should you only take one? Additional question: if you have to put a firm on Tuesday, is it generally advisable to schedule government jobs first for Tuesday? (Less likely to be offended?)

    Have Gowling, NRF, DLA sent PFOs? If they have, and you have not received that (or an ITC), is it at all worth holding out hope to hear from them? I know anecdotal stories are out there about people getting lucky on call day, but how many people do firms really keep on their waiting list?
  8. 2018 2L Recruitment

    Do the following ITC: Steiber, BTZ, Polley Faith, McCague?
  9. 2018 2L Recruitment

    Very eager to know as well - was the message personal, or a generic form email?
  10. 2018 2L Recruitment

    Oz - SOM indicated to me that ITCs would be going out on Oct. 13. I did not receive any communications. I doubt they made a mistake with that date, but I guess it is possible they meant to say Oct. 20.
  11. Any Osgoode Students get ITC?

    Anyone hear from NRF?
  12. 2018 2L Recruitment

    Any word from Lenczner? (do they send out ITC/PFO?)
  13. 2018 2L Recruitment

    Any news on DLA for Oz?
  14. Any Osgoode Students get ITC?

    I suppose my question was more to ask if all of the ITCs would have gone out *yet*. It seems very sudden. I was expecting them to go out next week...? Perhaps I’m wrong.
  15. Any Osgoode Students get ITC?

    Does this mean that all Osgoode ITC offers from those three firms have likely gone out? Or are the messages staggered somewhat? Mostly curious about Fasken.
