"Stikeman Elliott : no calls before the 22nd" 

 

C'est à corriger :)

Stikeman vient d'appeler (McGill).

Aussi, svp, ne vous laissez pas décourager par les annonces dans ce post! Des fois je vois qu'un cabinet a appelé l'un-e d'entre vous, mais je ne reçois l'appel moi-même qu’1 ou 2 jours plus tard. Donc, lorsqu’on vous dit que différents cabinets fonctionnent avec des processus différents de sélection, croyez le!! Tout n’est pas fini.

Hi, does it mean firms take between 2 to 3 days to complete all calls? Thanks for the reassuring words !

Sometimes, but also you have to consider that, while some firms review all applications as a whole, others will review one school at a time. Some firms will also wait to have reviewed all the applications before they call anyone while others will start calling people as they go through applications. There are so many factors that can affect how soon you receive a call. Best of luck!

I have no idea, it’s my first course. But I guess there could be a lot of reasons

  • Your application was given to a specific group of persons, who has not started reviewing yet 
  • You were selected during the second round of applications review (so what? if you still get an interview you still stand a chance :))
  • They proceed school by school 

 

If I were you, I would not make any judgements about myself according to the call timing, or to who’s called me exactly (e.g.: if a mid-size firm did not call then Davies would definitely not). Some big firms called me immediately in the first wave, whereas I waited a little longer for other mid-size firms. Sometimes it was the other way round. 

 

We are all really stressed and checking obsessively but it helps to remind other people that you did not always get a call immediately :)

Hey! Was your call from an unknown number?

I got a call from Stikeman as well and it wasn't from an unknown number.

Ah, that's weird then! Did they tell you that they were going to send an email tomorrow to let you choose your interview time though?

Some firms call over a period exceeding 2 to 3 days. These types of threads are fine, but as someone posted above, don't put too much thought and stress into it. You'll get your calls when you get them ;)

No worries. I don't think anyone would call you from a hidden number just to trick you and set up a fake interview with you. If that's indeed the case, there is a special place in hell for these people.  :rolling:

    • My file says "complete ready for review." It also says they received my LSAT score yesterday, but on LSAC it doesn't show they've requested it. I'm assuming they'll wait to request them until the early admissions window is closed (at least).
    • Yes I have used the GPA calculators just I can't believe my eyes.    So upon looking at what schools im eligible to apply for, I'm realizing I caluculating my GPA lower than it actually is.    My understanding is Queens and UVIC use 4.33 as well as Dalhousie. All of which im applying to. My CGPA through my degree is 84.8. Am I right to say that this means I have a 4.0 on their scales?    My LSAT is: 162  If that's the case where can I apply with a 4.0 and 162?   
    • I have slightly different advice from the above (although I agree that your perception your peers are better off than you is probably wrong!).  You wrote that you're doing a lot of reading and briefing, but struggling with the application. It sounds like you need to focus more of your study time to that. You can do that through practice questions/tests, but I also just recommend making up your own hypotheticals in your head. I always would try to simplify it to the most basic and relatable terms. A lot of 1Ls say they struggle with the old cases because of the language, but I think it's also that the facts of cases aren't relatable. So try applying the rule to relatable problems. I may not be explaining this well. Feel free to PM me with a rule/case and I can give a concrete example of what I meant.  Learning the law matters so much less than being able to apply it, and it sounds like that's where you're struggling right now. 
    • I'd say my extra cirriculars are strong but I'm worried my GPA will ultimately hold me back
    • Hi, I was wondering what would be my chances with a 155 Lsat score and a 3.94 gpa (with drops). I only wrote the lsat once, and only really want to re-write in jan if necessary. I am a Manitoban resident.  Thanks for the responses.
