Hi everyone! Hope your are having an amazing day! :) Looking for some wisdom and tips here
I would love to work at a big law firm, and as a current 1L at uOttawa, I was hoping to receive some wisdom on what I can do NOW till the recruit period to better my chances! I have a few good corporate experiences from undergrad and my grades in undergrad are pretty good. So far, I've been working on the following:
my grades! Currently, I am sitting at B+ average, but hoping to improve on a few of the classes I neglected
networking - I have been networking with a few people from big law but nothing too special & networking with professors for reference letters
summer? WHAT DO I DO FOR SUMMER?
ECs: joined 1-2 (working with a lawyer and advocacy work)
Anyways, I feel like nothing I am doing is really making me stand apart and I feel so mediocre. I would love to get some advice on what I can do to better prepare myself or increase my chances :)
Thank you in advance xx
