  1. Unsuccessful. Won't go into stats but my index was way below par. Found out via status checker. Edit: Email followed shortly
  2. From what I've gathered from past posts, acceptances and waitlists often come out one day before rejections. FYI I have not received a call or status update so I am expecting a rejection email tomorrow.
  3. I've been considering a move to PC from my 8-year-old MacBook as I figured the Windows platform will be universal in both classroom and professional settings. The last thing I want to deal with during 1L is to accommodate an Apple OS. Given not all keyboards are created equal, is it worth (in your opinions) specifically targeting a laptop with a high quality keyboard and typing experience (for exams..)?
  4. Does one have any notable advantages over the other for law school use? Thanks!
  5. My CGPA is low as well. Awesome LSAT improvement! Good luck!
  6. If you were to place schools into tiers for Bay St hiring, how would it look?
  7. Is there much variance within tier 2? I'd imagine the Osgoode name may hold a bit more weight than Windsor. What about UBC? Given how selective admission is, do TO firms simply bundle them with TRU, Lakehead, UNB, etc?
  8. Are the committee members held to any agreements to maintain the anonymity of applicants? Or are things disclosed by the applicant in the application documents (grades on transcripts, sensitive information in personal statements, etc) now subject to casual conversations at the local pub? Thanks!
  9. I was surprised (pleasantly) by this as well. Please enlighten us with Hoju wisdom.
  10. I can see the logic behind that. Would the firms get the added benefit of hiring a mid-level lawyer for the cost of a fresh associate? Or does the lateral movement position the associate in their respective place on the lockstep salary structure?
  11. I wonder how much of an investment it is for firms to sponsor a work visa.
  12. Firms must have so many competitive US candidates to choose from. What may be the incentives of hiring a Canadian? What are some key factors (current firm, class ranking, experience, etc) considered by US firms when assessing a lateral transfer candidate?
  13. From cruising around lawyer profiles on firm websites, it seems McGill/UofT/Osgoode are the only schools with real (relative) US biglaw presence. Would lateral transfer opportunities still be mostly limited to alumni of these three schools?
