  1. When you say 3rd interview, do you mean 2nd in-firm interview (as in OCI + 2 in-firms so 3 interviews total) or 3rd interview as in 3rd in-firm interview (4 interviews total)?
  2. Any idea of what partnership compensation may look like in Ottawa? From large national firms to mid-size firms.
  3. Ottawa 100%. It's an established institution with a network.
  4. When I went to bed last night there were two posts and I thought this thread was a joke. I check again less than 24 hours later to see 100+ posts and realize OP was serious...LOL
  5. After completing my OCIs, I wish I knew this. I spent way too much time preparing and now I'm behind on classes. That's the way the cookie crumbles I suppose.
  6. First cold test I ever wrote was a 132. Wrote some more practice tests and scored in the 140s. Then I actually buckled down and took the LSAT seriously - ended up scoring a 150 on test day and then a 158 on my second attempt. Here I am a few years later trying to figure out how to navigate OCIs. Point being is that the LSAT is tough, but you can do it. You just need to put your mind to it and remain resilient. I also recommend 7sage, it is what I used and it was fantastic. Feel free to PM me with any questions. Best of luck!
  7. Reviving this thread as I have an OCI coming up with OLG. Any recollection of questions that were asked? Substantive or informal?
  8. I agree with the above posters. Take it now and see how you do, then determine how much time you will need to prepare for the score you wish to achieve. A free test can be found here: https://www.lsac.org/lsat/lsat-prep/practice-test. If you are looking to do self study, I took 7sage and enjoyed it. If you're looking for in-class (via Zoom nowadays), I've heard great things about Harvard Ready. I wasn't a big fan of Princeton Review, but I also didn't like the in-class environment because I preferred moving at my own pace (hence why I enjoyed 7sage). If you find you're having difficulties progressing on PTs after taking a course, look into private tutors, they can be worth the extra money. Best of luck!
  9. I just sent them an email. Hopefully they can be of some assistance.
  10. I'm a little concerned about this myself. I applied to both the Toronto and Ottawa offices of a few national firms. I'm considering withdrawing my Ottawa apps (I'm from Toronto), but I'm not sure if that will look even worse lol.
  11. Any advice for someone studying (law) in Toronto looking to summer/article/practice out in Ottawa? I've heard it's hard to crack the Ottawa market without a connection to the city. There are various reasons for wanting to make the move, and fear of not landing a position in Toronto is NOT one of them. I'm enticed by the lower cost of living, lower population, and the fact that I have friends out there. Would it suffice to convey these reasons in cover letters?
  12. I agree with herpsderps. Apply everywhere and see where you land. It's better to have options. Also good advice on applying where you wish to practice.
