  1. Hey! Im only in 1L but i can give my experience on your area of interest. I will also begin with the caveat that as a 1L this year, my experience is certainly different than other years, so hopefully you will get an answer from that perspective too. As for opportunities within the school, for 1L's i think places are fairly slim pickings. You cant do most of the "cooler" clinics until the upper years because they require upper year courses. However, Pro Bono clinic and Legal Aid Clinic are two really great opportunities for 1Ls to get a glimpse into what real world legal work looks/feels like. I unfortunately was not selected but i have friends who were and they say it is amazing to work with real files. Windsor does also have some great upper year clinics (i'm thinking IP, Class Actions, Self-Represented litigants etc.) which, from what i hear from upper years and realllllyyy cool. Now, as for Bay st, i think it's realistic if you want it bad. Windsor grads get placed at big firms every year, maybe not as much as other schools but still get placed (myriad factors at play here). I know tons of Windsor grads at firms i'm really interested in and from what i hear, we did pretty well in the 1L recruit (consider last year we only had like 2 students offered jobs). I was unsuccessful at the recruit and had fairly good marks, work experience and the whole lot...and honestly, i wasnt too bummed because the firm i want to end up at doesnt hire 1Ls. I really do believe that if your grades are decent and you can carry yourself in interviews, you can get a Bay st job if you want it. At the end of the day, the kicker will likely be you and not the school you go to. I might get some people saying otherwise but Windsor is still a great school (and i think i would have liked it more in the non-virtual setting) with great opportunities on the other end. PM me if you have any super specific questions.
  2. what makes you think that? your lsat is stellar and B3 just below the median GPA of the 2020 entering class. I wouldnt be so hasty - hold out hope!!
  3. I can second this....its amazing to hear her story all the while being exposed to her writing style and opinions on things. Very cool...am currently in the middle of reading this. Also - Guns, Germs and Steel is amazing. Historical account but if you're into that then you'll love it.
  4. Its a popular one and based on American school (neverthless helpful) but How to Get to Maybe is great for law school exams. I knew nothing about law school exams and how different they really were from undergrad and the different skills required - you will learn these in your 1L but the book is a fantastic intro.
  5. Hey everyone - wondering if anyone has any insight into whether the 2L recruit for next year will be held in November again. As firms now have experience with conducting virtual recruit and given that 1L students will have grades, i'm assuming it'll occur during the fall term, as usual....but also who knows! Any and all insight is helpful.
  6. Amazing!!! Congratulations. Go celebrate
  7. did it come in as an email?
  8. oh thats awsome! huge congrats!!!
  9. If you are interested in corporate law and want to get a job on bay st at a bigger firm, i would have a look at the distribution of students who secured jobs on bay st from the respective schools. If you know of any firms youre interested in, look into those numbers specifically. If you have any questions about Windsor specifically feel free to PM me. Im a 1L and interested in the corporate route. Here is the link: http://ultravires.ca/2019/12/toronto-summer-2020-2l-recruit-numbers/
