  1. Yea, I was not planning on adding more debt to the ever-growing student line of credit, and OSAP. Im in my third year, and have been looking for a while now. I have other interviews lined up but I worry about taking the risk. Thank you for the insights!
  2. Thank you for all the advice everyone! I love how law students and professionals can be so supportive! I really appreciate it.
  3. Thats actually a great point! They're an insurance litigation firm, I was leaning more towards family and estate law, but like you said, there is always things I will learn there that I can apply to my career going forward.
  4. Yea, they are hiring 3 students. I was confused why they didn't just hire 2 and pay them both a better (more livable) wage. Thank you for the advice.
  5. See thats the thing, I am not really interested in the area of law. I have been umbrella applying to firms in the hope of finding something. I suppose if they make an offer I can inquiry into expected hours, LSO fees, etc. and make my decision from there.
  6. Hi everyone, I have a quick question and I was hoping to get other's input since I am feeling conflicted. I recently interviewed with a firm, and from the sound of it the interview went well. I was told the pay would be $650/week for the 10-month articling period. This is a small 16-lawyer civil litigation firm in Toronto. I cannot shake the feeling that $650 a week is too low for a firm in Toronto. Don't get me wrong, I am not expecting big-law pay. However, with the amount of hours articling students work, the $650 comes out to be less than minimum. With the cost of living in Toronto it just seems like a really low ball offer. What are your thoughts on this? Especially considering the current market. Should I try and negotiate the pay?
  7. I only got an email from them confirming my application, said they will be conducting interviews early to mid-February.
  8. I had an interview with them last week. They said they are in the very early stages of interviews
  9. If the timing of the interview matters, is it a good sign being the first interview on the first day, or is this a bad sign?
