  1. 2019/2020 Toronto Articling Recruit (ITC Emails for Interviews)

    Can confirm Glaholt ITC. Also, Alan Gold PFO!
  2. 2019/2020 Toronto Articling Recruit (ITC Emails for Interviews)

    I don't believe that there is any actual or intended prejudice by the firms. If you really consider the timing of when my application was submitted, the prejudice argument becomes weaker. Apps had opened on May 28th and I submitted mine on July 2nd, merely 4 days before the deadline. So practically speaking, submitting my app 4 days before the deadline should have already prejudiced my chances had the firm started reviewing apps early and were being prejudicial towards late submitters, considering they had all of June to select other applicants! I am not trying to defend the firms but just to provide more context, I am not a straight A student and only demonstrated a strong interest in Tax Law through my educational background and ECs. Had prejudice really existed against late submitters, I don't believe I would have gotten the interview offer because submitting an app the week it was due, but had been open for over a month seems quite late to me.

    I was surprised too! Sent in my app on July 2nd.
  4. Thought I’d get started on a thread for Articling Interviews’ Intent to Call or PFO emails - for informational purposes. Got an ITC from KPMG Tax last night.
  5. Rejected 2016

    Rejected yesterday.
  6. Decision still pending?

    Oh no, it could be a waitlist too I guess. The person I spoke with just said an offer, so it could be an acceptance or waitlist too, in my opinion.
  7. Decision still pending?

    Called Queen's just now and was told that there is no guarantee that they will be replying to everyone before the July 1st deadline as they have our files ranked and are making offers based on those rankings. So we may or may not hear back before any provisionally acceptances elsewhere turn firm. Just wish that they would respond to everyone before the deadline. Don't understand what they've been doing for the past 8 months with our applications.
  8. Waitlist 2016

    Was waitlisted back on May 11. Hope we find out our ranks soon.
  9. Accepted 2016

    How did you receive this information? Thanks!
  10. Rejected 2016

    Rejected from Single (but got into Dual JD). In response to some posts made by others here and having met some of the people involved with the admissions committee, I think that Windsor's focus is more on diversity and not just GPA or LSAT. Considering Windsor doesn't have the best reputation when compared to other law schools in Ontario, this is the strategy that Windsor seems to have adopted. Anyone with a 3.8+ and 170+ on the LSAT can get into places like Osgoode or UofT. But someone has to see students as who they are and what sets them apart and not just let them be defined by their GPA/LSAT score. But then again, this is just my opinion.
