Calgary 1L Recruit Thread

Recommended Posts

They were supposedly sending emails out starting today. 

 

Thanks! Yep, I can confirm that as well.

Was just getting a bit antsy after hearing from some of the others but not BD&P until today.

Has anyone heard from Torys?

I got an email from Torys last Wednesday. Submitted my application mid-January. 

 

Wondering if anyone has heard from Norton-Rose yet.

I got interviews from Blakes and Norton Rose. I haven't heard from others aside from Osler (waitlist?). I submitted my application at the last day and I'm not sure the status of other law firms. Did anyone hear from Stikeman Elliott yet?

Stikeman sent out all interviews last week and this week i believe; Osler did as well.

 

BDP, Miller, Bennett Jones, Blakes have all sent out their first round at least.

Yes, I heard from them yesterday. They were scheduling for the 22nd so I assumed that they had filled up the 21st already. Though I may be wrong.

In case anyone is interested in some numbers I learned today:

Torys: interviewing 14, hiring 1.

Osler: interviewing 30ish, hiring 2.

Fasken: interviewing 30ish, hiring 2 maybe 3.

If someone didn't hear anything back yet after the interview yesterday, I am guessing the person didn't get selected for the second interview? How do you know whether you are still a strong candidate when you're in the blank?

Be proactive and follow up. Send thankyou emails expressing how much you loved talking about xyz and mention that you'd love to come back to meet more people from z practice group. Worse case scenario you get told no but I don't think it can hurt and certainly might help if you were a borderline candidate. Take with grain of salt because this is my Toronto oci advice. Calgary may have different norms

Will we be receiving rejections on Friday too? I know some firms send out rejections before Friday, but I am curious whether we just won't hear anything at all on Friday if we don't get an offer after 5:00. This wait is killing me, and I was just curious if if I hadn't received a rejection yet, whether that was a good sign that I am still in the running.

 

I know every firm may be different, but I was just curious what other's had heard.

Good luck to everyone today! If you don't get a job, you won't hear anything. Sometimes people think about offers and eventually decline so stay by your phone for a little while in case they call late. It's not the end of the world if you don't get a job, you're only in 1L - there's plenty of other opportunities!

How long should we wait before we should start drinking?

I hate to be the one to break it, but you should likely already be drunk

    • Dude, come on. This person worked hard to get into law school. Congratulate them or don't say anything at all. Why poke fun at them now and belittle them?  Major congrats oceann. You're going to law school and on your way to becoming a lawyer. Wish you the best of luck in the rest of the process. 
    • From my understanding, Osgoode’s actual bursary application does not open until the first week of classes.    The early bursary notification application, which is filled out prior to the start of law school, only tells you whether you are likely to receive bursary funding should you apply. It doesn’t tell you the likely quantum of funding.    As such, missing the deadline for this early bursary notification program should not exclude you from receiving funding since you actually apply for this at the beginning of term.    Unless the process is different than last year or the year prior, there’s no need to worry! 
    • Now you get a chance to learn Python. Congratulations! You are still a number, either 1 (true) or 0 (false).😂  
    • I’m an Osgoode JD/MBA grad, currently on Bay Street. For what it’s worth, I’d say 80% of the students who wanted Bay Street law jobs got it. This includes students with straight B averages, who I feel confidently would not have gotten as many interviews without the MBA. Of course, the calculation to do the degree is a bit more complicated than that, but you can message me, I’m happy to provide my view and chat.
