  1. 2018 2L Recruitment

    Nothing on my end, just that they're working through applications now and will only contact you if you get one. Same with Blaneys.
  2. 2018 2L Recruitment

    Makes networking easier for future students would be my guess. By posting the lists the students in the next recruit are able to access resources at their schools.
  3. Sorry the conversation doesn't suit you.
  4. Gotta also have dreams for when you further transcend. Aka a Patek Phillipe Celestial, good lord, although I do prefer the older style.
  5. 2018 2L Recruitment

    To be honest, with reading this thread and talking to my friends, I'm kinda glad I was let off this hook a few weeks ago. I can't say much for these 200 pages of evidence readings, though.
  6. Salary in Edmonton

    Honest question, are the workloads any different between TO and OTT starting associates? Are you getting more balance? Because honestly it becomes kind of difficult to justify taking a 25% haircut at the beginning of your career if you're working the same hours and doing the same work, just 600km away. I can think of a lot of things I love about Ottawa, and I see a lot of benefits for me in working there etc. But looking at NALP salaries sometimes is depressing, especially if a lot of the tangible benefits to being in Ottawa for me wouldn't be accessible based on my work load.
  7. 2017 Associate Salary Bump (Toronto)

    What explains the major discrepancies between hireback ratios year over year? For example, Bennett Jones drops from 90% down to 67% the next year. Is that a factor of firm business needs or a factor of some not so great students? A little of both?
  8. Suits For Men

    A little further to the expensive side, but I want to give a shout out to Sidonio's in Guelph. They were super helpful, the alterations were perfect, and I'm pretty thrilled about the way my suit fits. Ended up with a Jack Victor suit (Super 130's, etc.) for 850 or so. Turnaround time was great and even though I looked young, etc. I was treated like anyone else and the owners took the time to show me around and discuss my options.

    Yep. Blakes PFO came through. Nothing from Osler or McMillan though.
  11. 2018 2L Recruitment

    PFO Davies (Windsor transfer).
  12. EGO

    But can he create a million jobs?
  13. EGO

    What do you call someone who has a J.D. from Windsor and passed the bar? A Lawyer.
