    2L Summer (2019) Recruit PFOs/ITCs

    Although.. I think 15 of their class last year were returning 1Ls, and 8 came back this year. 22 2Ls both years. Who knows what that means.

    Hiring up all over the place. I wonder what happened at Blakes...

    I wish I did this now. I also felt like it was a "don't really go there" area.

    I mean.. many of the people clerking at appellate courts spend a summer on Bay. I think the statement "by and large, the candidates hired at the top Bay street firms are some of the top candidates in the country," is objectively correct.

    People who are extroverts or can at least fake it for three days have an incredible advantage in the formal recruit. Many, many excellent candidates fall through the cracks and successfully find clerkships.

    Windsor and Switiching Law Schools

    It's not easy, but people transfer from all over to all over every year. Just get excellent 1L grades, you're not about to go re-write the LSAT after you've been admitted, so nothing you can do there.

    This is very firm-dependent, and likely host-dependent. Even if your host can tell you a lot, it doesn't mean you're safe (as I found out). I wouldn't worry about how much your host knows.

    I think Bay Street copied what New York was doing to grab Toronto students, not necessarily the process they actually use in New York... according to that JD Precedent article, anyway.

    I actually enjoyed my long dinners, so to each their own I guess.

    It sounds like you're choosing between two objectively great options, so congratulations I think at a certain level, the firms are more or less interchangable as far as the quality of work and people you would be doing it with. At that point, you need to decide where and who you would be happiest with. .

    There were second interviews Tuesday and third Wednesday. Third interview invitations were sent before the reception. I'm obviously not going to say anything is certain, but if your friend was not asked to return a second time it was probably more beneficial that he used his time elsewhere on Tuesday night. He shouldn't feel like he made a mistake.

    I don't think they're doing dinners. I also know that it doesn't matter; none of the people I know who received offers there in the past had a dinner.

    Potential Vancouver Salary Bump?

    According to NALP, most large firms in Van are paying $95k-$101k. If those are pre-bump numbers, $103k+ seems plausible.
