  1. I have a friend who got a call from Harper Grey
  2. 22 applications, 10 OCIs, 4 ITC 1L: B+, B, B, B, B, B, B- 2L: B, B+, A- Obviously my grades are not great, my overall average works out to solid B. I think most of the OCIs I received were because of some dogged networking, plenty of law school extracurriculars, and carefully tailored cover letters (I mentioned the area of law I'm interested in and cited specific practice areas the firm had). It probably also helped that my one A- was in a course relating to the area of law I want to practice in.
  3. Unfortunately no. They don't do OCI's at my school so I haven't heard anything from them since I submitted my application. Realistically not holding out much hope at this point.
  4. Got an ITC from them this morning
  5. I have an ITC from Cassels as well
  6. Anyone heard from Sangra Moller or RBS?
  7. Do you mind sharing what school?
  8. I've heard the strategy varies by the firm. However, just because they've already gone out for a firm isn't a guarantee that there won't be more to come. Some of the top applicants who receive a bunch of interview offers will have to reject some due to interview week time constraints, and this frees up firms to send out even more interview offers.
  9. If it helps at all, here's my thoughts and what I've heard for some of these firms. Clark Wilson: A regional firm similar to Lawson Lundell, however they only have a Vancouver office. Pretty large and full service firm, I've only heard good things about them. Stikeman: National firm but smaller Vancouver office, mostly solicitor work RBS: Mid size firm with over 70 different practice areas. Oldest law firm in BC, strong connection to Vancouver, and many of their clients are multi-generational McMillan: Known for their corporate work, and I've heard their capital markets practice is the best in the city Miller Thomson: The only notable thing I know about them is that their office is an open-concept design (personally not my cup of tea, but some students might be attracted to it) Farris: Another BC based, full service firm. My interactions with them haven't been great, they seem to give off a "fratboy" vibe Singleton: Best construction law boutique in the city
  10. Get an actual laptop. Echoing what @lewcifer said it's fine for day to day stuff, but you will run into trouble for exams. I'm at UVic which (in normal times) uses exam4 which only works on Windows and Mac, definitely not IOS. Even if the school's exam software was compatible it's annoying trying to make outlines on a smaller screen and keyboard. You don't need anything fancy, especially if you use the tablet for notetaking, but you should get a laptop.
  11. My application had around 9 or 10 bullet points, only a sentence each. Bullet point implies it should be short and to the point, I would try to keep it that way.
  12. The auto admit index in the past has varied from 905-920. If you're confident your index is going to be a 910 then you will very likely get an offer. Even if you are put on the waitlist, I wouldn't worry about it too much.
  13. I did way more studying in 1L as I wanted to do all my outlines from scratch and I spent hours trying to perfect them. I definitely didn't memorize things which was my focus in undergrad, but I needed my outlines to be as perfect as possible. For December exams, I would begin my outlines in early November. I wanted to be done outlines once exam period actually started so that I could then use my outline for practice exams and to be as familiar with the material as possible. I'm now in 2L, and although grades are still important because I'm participating in next semester's formal recruit, my study habits have definitely changed. Part of it is a general lack of motivation and frustration with online learning, but all of my outlines were ones I got from past classes that I'm just updating with recent notes and caselaw. The outlines are complete for the most part heading into exam season, but they're not as detailed and I'm not as familiar with the material on it as I was at this time last year.
  14. Your index isn't high enough to get an auto-admit, even with a 902.5. However, I do think you should apply as your LSAT score is quite strong and should at the very least put you into the waiting list. If you can improve your index to be closer to 890-900 then I think you can reasonably expect an offer from the waitlist.
