Does anyone know what kinds of grades are getting interviews for these OCIs? Just generally speaking?

I'm not really sure to tell you the truth. I feel like solid Hamilton connection was the most important.

Hi! I have between a B+ and A- average and no Hamilton connection (I'm from Toronto). I have solid legal work experience and competition involvement. I applied to 9 firms, received 3 interviews. Got 2 offers and accepted one of them. I'm not sure how much that helps, but I hope it does a bit! I think some firms care about Hamilton connection more than others, just like some care more about grades. :) Good luck!

Only Toronto does OCIs.  Hamilton's interviews, like all others, are at the firms themselves.

Yeah, my bad. I knew that but my mind must have wandered when typing. Thanks for catching it.

    • I do believe that Queen's considers 4 courses per semester a full course load.
    • I don't see a lot of UofC Associates or Articling Students in Toronto at all, but there's certainly Windsor grads at every large firm. I also wouldn't place my hopes on getting into Big Law in Calgary and then lateraling over either - that's a lot of steps that have to go correctly. Getting Calgary BigLaw isn't a lay-up in and of itself. I would say go to Windsor and network, get good summaries and work your butt off in 1L and try to get grades in the top quarter of your class. 
    • Bit of an odd-duck here.    B2: 78% LSAT: 157 (one write) Sask Connection: Step-father is ex-law lecturer at UofS and Queen’s Bench and I served as president of the University of Regina Student’ Union for two elected terms.    Will these connection items help??
    • hey thanks! this is a good perspective. yeah I am open to biglaw in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto, but ideally would like to end up in Toronto. I know about Windsor having low placement rates, so I guess my question is whether to risk the low placement rate but be in Ontario, or risk being out of province but have the Calgary market open to me. I don't really want to stay in Calgary longer than I have to.
    • The categorization of those firms was in response to the list in the original post, and not intended to identify tiers of law firms. BLG, Dentons, and probably McCarthy's should be in the larger firm bracket for the Calgary market.
