  1. You appear to be using your real name. Just a heads up that you cannot delete posts after one hour on this site, and I believe require Mod approval to change your user name.
  2. I love those profs who really, really don't get it.
  3. I forgot about this. Didn't Dentons hire something like 10 or 11? Edit: Yeah, wow, only seven of their 23-student class in 2019 were new 2L hires. 11 were 1Ls and the rest returning 1Ls.
  4. You're a 2L summer in 2020? If your offer letter was at $1700/wk, you're at "market."
  5. What sort of flexibility are you imagining? Law is unfortunately not the most portable profession.
  6. Don’t apply to the 1L formal recruit with a transcript of Cs unless you’re.. I don’t know, a former professional athlete or something similarly impressive.
  7. PSA... you can probably get Scotia to go to Prime + 0. That's what I have; I just needed to show them that someone else had already offered that. Go to TD, get an offer at Prime, then see if Scotia will reduce their rate.
  8. I don't know anything about the National program, but the website is likely talking about a 4.0 on the Ottawa JD GPA scale, which is: A+(10), A(9), A-(8), B+(7), B(6), C+(5), C(4), D+(3), etc. down to 0.
  9. It's incredibly unlikely that you will get a 1L offer out of Ottawa. If you don't have mostly (and you should really have nothing less) than As, you likely won't receive an interview. January term is a perfect opportunity to prepare your application without hurting your grades. You'll have lots of time to work on it, just get it out of the way. If you want to apply, treat it as a chance to prepare your resume and cover letter for the 2L recruit. Hopefully it turns into something more than that.
  10. What in the world are you talking about.
  11. Lots of people transfer after 1L, complain about Ottawa, and wish they weren’t there. That these other posters “never” heard that is surprising, but I guess that comes with a 300 student class. That said, it has no bearing on campus “morale” that I saw.
  12. All entirely possible. I should turn on my NALP Canada alerts to keep up.
  13. Why don’t I think that’s a change for BJ? For some reason I thought they were already above the standard grid but could easily be mistaken.
  14. Ah well. It’s not that bad but it changes the job search. It’ll be gone eventually.
