  1. Don't do this! The best part about going to QL is the community here.
  2. I know of offers going out last night from Justices Abella and Karakatsanis, between 4:30 and 8:30 pm.
  3. Interview offers. Job offers will not go out until after the SCC offers are made.
  4. I have also heard of offers coming from Justices Near and Laskin.
  5. Out of curiosity, when did that person hear?
  6. It may not even be over for him. Some go school by school.
  7. Justices Stratas and Woods.
  8. FCA comes out on a rolling basis. Each judge runs their own process and as far as I know only two judges have made interview offers so far, so you're definitely not out of the running!
  9. Thanks you all for your replies. It more or less confirms what I was thinking. I suppose most of my anxiety stems from the fact that my school's CDO (and most others, I presume) really make it seem like OCIs are the only avenue to get a job. I guess I'll just have to live with the risk!
  10. Hi everyone, I'm looking for advice from someone who either didn't participate in the formal Toronto 2L recruit, or didn't apply broadly. I've been doing a lot of research this summer and I think that I've decided that the big full service firms are not for me. I'm much more drawn to the boutique firms that practice in more niche areas, but the majority of the firms that I'm interested in do not participate in the formal recruit. Some don't even start hiring until January. I'm concerned that if I go with my gut and forego all or most of the postings in the formal recruit, that I will not find a 2L job. I know that I will be a very strong applicant based on my grades and past experience, but it still seems like a major risk. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
  11. Lol that is a gross overstatement - it's a strict B curve with an exception for small section classes, which are curved to a B+.
  12. Hi OP! Replying because I had almost exactly the same stats as you (3.89 cGPA, 158 LSAT on my first write, and 168 on my second). My ECs were also very strong and I had great LoRs. I was accepted in the first round at U of T, and was in at every other school I applied to by the end of December. You should not worry - just take the time to write a great application and you will be in before you know it PM me if you have any more questions or need any advice!
  13. How many students are in each section?
  14. Hi there, I'm currently trying to decide whether to attend U of T or Queen's in the fall. I did my undergrad at Queen's in a very social justice oriented program, and as a result my legal interests lie in that realm (constitutional law, health law, aboriginal law etc). I don't think I will develop an interest in corporate law, but that being said, I'm looking forward to 1L so that I can try a bunch of new things. I've loved the community at Queen's, but part of me is ready to move on from Kingston. I'm a good student but I don't have a super competitive attitude, and I'm worried I won't do well in the environment at U of T. Cost is also a big factor, especially since I'm paying for school myself and I don't see myself going into a necessarily high paying area of law. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
  15. Accepted just now via email! 3.89 cGPA, 168 LSAT (October)
