  1. Hey, Thanks for this. Always nice to know others are in the disheartening position of not having articling yet. 1) For cold calling/emailing I've been using my network to make connections. So far I haven't found too many jobs on this front (because they are areas of law I have no interest in practicing/no experience or the pay is just way, way too low). I have okay grades. I don't know what my percentage is, but I've got a 3.4 with a couple course prizes. 2) I have no idea of the quality of the positions but my school's career office has told me to keep my head up and that there will be a continuous stream of positions open. Looking at last year's post-articling thread, it looks like jobs continue to be posted for the next few months. So, there's a reason to keep one's head up. I will say that my career office doesn't tend to be overly rosy so I put stock in what they say. 3) I have no desire to do the LPP. I don't want to pay money to make myself unmarketable. Law is a stratified profession and I've been warned by my friends who already practice to be very careful with this route. At this point, I'll continue to apply to jobs as they come but I have no problem reapplying for the articling recruit.
  2. Devastated. 10 interviews. Countless hours of prep and anxiety and left cold.
  3. Does anyone know if there is a manual for non-Criminal Crown conduct. There is this one for Crown Criminal Prosecutors – but I'm interested in civil.
  4. ......yes. your stats are fine. are you guaranteed? no..... but osgoode looks holistically at your application and a strong upward trend (L2 3.94 is strong) really works in your favour! cGPA of 3.61 is not bad either.....
  5. Do we normally get rejection emails/calls after interviews? I assume it's over but, as pathetic as it sounds, it'd be a nice courtesy.
  6. Does anyone know, approximately, what a competitive grade point average is for the MAG articling positions? I know the average for some, like the constitutional branch, are quite high but are there hard cut-offs? Do you need to have an A- average? Thanks for any info.
  7. Does anyone have any experience where some classmates have received ITCs and some have received PFOs but you've received nothing yet? Is this a sign I'm on a waitlist? That I've been forgotten? I've been waiting for weeks in this position and I am getting sick of it....
  8. Uh, no, lol. They didn't send it to me. I guess I should follow up with them. I paid the $300 service fee and completed the application.
  9. Did you receive this update through an Osgoode login account that the school sent you? All I have is OLSAS and there's no indication of waitlist anywhere.
  10. Has everyone heard back? I'm assuming a rejection at this point, but wondering what's going on.
  11. does anyone know as to whether or not there will be some movement off the wait-list? I've called a couple times and sent an email, but haven't been able to connect with them.
  12. Dang. Not encouraging for those of us on the waitlist. Thanks for reaching out.
  13. From historic Accepted 20** threads it appears that people can begin getting off the Waitlist in early May so... soon?
  14. Waitlisted yesterday cGPA: 3.65 (L2: 3.9) LSAT: 163
