  1. Not to derail the thread, but I'm wondering about how many OCIs a firm conducts per one available position. (also how many in-firms)
  2. Hi, I just realized that there is typo in my resume: "under privileged" instead of underprivileged. How bad is it? Is there anything I should (can) do at this point?
  3. They are in January. My transcript only has three grades on it. But I think that this semester's grades will be included
  4. Hey, I am currently a 2L and planning to apply for the OCIs. But, I'm so worried about them even though I haven't applied yet. The thing is that I'm heavily interested in pursuing a career in business law, and so far, I have taken only business law courses for my 2L (and I intend to do the same in 3L). However, I only have my first semester grades as the school went pass/fail in the second semester, and my average is a flat B. I'm worried that I don't stand a chance at the OCIs, and I'm looking for some guidance on what I should do when I got no interviews.
  5. Also, I was under the impression that courses matter, as they show an interest in the prospective field of practice.
  6. Not to highjack the thread, but what if you have lots of corporate/business courses but can't get hired at Bay Street? I am interested in business law (no necessarily because it pays well) but am worried that I might not have a shot there.
  7. Withdrawing money from your SLOC will not affect your credit score, failing to pay your debt on the other hand does. Though you don't have to worry about that for now.
  8. Last year, I got one with 160 and 3.98; it isn't a large scholarship though. I would say that your GPA is a bit low for a scholarship. Though some of the scholarships are not decided on academic achievements only. If you show financial needs, you might be able to get one.
  9. Hope you all are keeping well. I finished my 1L. And I was wondering about what to do for the summer. I was offered a summer position in a criminal law firm, but that's not happening now due to the pandemic. I was thinking about taking some online courses. I came across a negotiation course, which is offered by London School of Business. It's a six-week online course, but it comes with a rather hefty price tag: £2,100. I'm wondering if it's worth it. On the same note, if you can suggest any summer course worth taking, I'd appreciate that.
  10. Let’s say a criminal law firm in Toronto.
  11. why didn't you take that then? (feel free not to answer if too personal)
  12. As a now concerned 1L, how close is this to the average articling salary?
  13. Can you tell who the prof was so I can avoid such an experience?
  14. For what it's worth, I just want to say that there is no correlation whatsoever between when you send your application and when you go into queue and when you receive an answer. I sent my application last year at the very first day (3.98, 160) but received my offer at March 15. I don't remember when I went into queue, but it was after the first round, which was crazy considering that I submitted my application on the first day, and no information was pending. Also, OASIS is updated once a day (my guess is around 9 a.m.), so stop torturing yourself and check the website only once in any given day.
