    Well. Firms making over 1 billion did that, so you seem to be wrong.

    Well managed organizations don't waste money.

    So what's your explanation then?

    I knew of some firms who conducted telephone interviews as screenings. These weren't the typical firms who come to Canada to recruit, but rather ones who people applied to directly.

    My guess is that if the firm makes over $1 billion annually they probably figure they can afford to take a chance and fly in people (on economy) without an initial phone screen.

  3. I have an interview offer from an NY firm.  I can talk more in PM. I'm surprised because it was an in-firm offer without an initial phone interview.

  4. In cover letter, if you're trying to say that your interest piqued in the firm after speaking with a summer student who told you xyz, is it fine to simply say that you spoke with a summer student or should you name the student? I'm inclined to go with the former because I don't want to give the impression that I'm name dropping.

    Keep in mind that recruiters from the big firms talk to each other, so applying to both BJ's Calgary and Toronto might not be the only way to tip them off; applying to both BJ's Calgary and Blakes Toronto might also.

    I can perfectly understand two branches of the same firm but two different firms in two different cities seems like a stretch. What would even be the rationale for such a conversation?

  6.  Not all, but at least a few law students are snakes who will refuse to share their notes with you even though you gladly shared your notes with them multiple times previously when they asked.

    I also hate having to tolerate assholes and not being able to tell them what you truly think of them.

    I'm familiar with their financial aid policies but you should scour their website and speak to the financial aid office to see if there's anything that can be done. But before that I'd exhaust all the other banks first. You haven't even spoken to RBC yet. You should also consider speaking to another scotia rep.
