  1. If after my first in firm interview with a firm, I got a dinner invitation from that firm, should I treat it as a good sign, or they nevertheless do it for almost every student? Or this varies from firm to firm?
  2. Did anyone hear from RBS? I'm aware that they don't comply with VBA guideline.
  3. Just out of curiosity, do questions like "what have you been up to this semester" come up during in firm interviews or dinners (if you don't really have anything exciting going on to bring up)?
  4. When an email is send out at this stage, it just confirms that you’ve got an interview with the firm (or saying that you’ve been rejected), there’ll be no actual “calling”. I don’t think every firm send out such emails, you’ll get the full list of all the OCIs you’ve been offered from your career office.
  5. Just wondering whether proposing a coffee or lunch is a thing for OCIs? I saw this advice before only regarding in firm.
  6. Suddenly came up with a question. Probably I'm overthinking it: What if during the following weeks there are more firms sending out dinner/reception invitations, and the time conflict with the ones that I already accepted? Will I automatically blow my in firm chances if I turn down the invitation?
  7. Got an invitation to a cocktail reception today from a Van firm. Confirmed an OCI in the same email.
  8. Gee this kind of question has come up once again yet I haven’t seen consistent answers. I actually asked my school’s CDO about applying to multiple offices, and their response was that as long as you have good reasons why you wanna work in that particular city you are fine.
  9. Last year we got a hard copy schedule for ELGC on the first day of orientation. I also remember it being posted on MyOsgoode in around August.
  10. Of course not! Just PMed. Let me know if you have further questions
  11. A huge thanks to the OP and everyone who participated! Learned a lot reading through the threads. Regarding the takeaway point of focusing on the things you did and skills you developed, I actually have a question on this aspect. I also had a “bad” experience during one of my previous internships. It’s not really about the people I worked for, but the work itself was deadly boring. I mostly just entered data and organized files, and interns barely have access to anything due to their confidentiality protocols. I’ll definitely never overstate what I did in my CV, in other words, anyone can notice that this experience is deadly boring at first glance. However, because the corporation itself was a big name, and the job was somehow law-related, I guess there’s still a chance that this experience will be brought up during interviews. So what would be the best way to talk about such an experience?
  12. Hey I’ve only been in Canada for one year and don’t speak English as my first language. I finished my 1L with a B+ average. And I know a few people with similar backgrounds got even better grades in law school and secured jobs with renowned firms.
