Did you get a lunch or dinner invitation in lieu of an invitation to a reception on Monday or did your Denton's ITC mention both? Also this is for Toronto recruit right?

There was also a reception invitation, and yes, this is for the Toronto recruit.

To make it clearer: For the Toronto recruit, did anyone hear anything back (ITC, PFO, reply to a thank you note) from Gowlings or McCarthy (U of Ottawa)?

What takes these firms a long time (3 weeks sometimes) to send these ITC's (if they decide to send ITC's)? Is it the compiling process from all universities that take awhile? I thought that they pretty much decide on the day of the interviews. Am I wrong? Just wondering what goes on behind the scenes.

Last Friday, so it's reasonable that I have not heard back yet from some of the firms.

I'm just trying to understand what goes on behind the scenes. Do these interviewers send their ranks to the recruiters, and then the recruiter compiles all the ranks from the various universities, and send in-firm emails? Is there a quota for each university to give in-firm interviews so that the firm would have a more diverse law school background of people? etc.

Various firms employ different methods. From my discussions with some of the recruiters, some have rough quotas for each school so they select infirm candidates accordingly. Others have an overall quota and group various schools together or do them all at once. It is quite an arbitrary process and a lot of luck is definitely involved throughout.

Very eager to know as well - was the message personal, or a generic form email?

    • Mind sharing in PM? I got invited to in firm on Monday and breakfast on Tuesday. Would like to know what I’m getting myself into lol
    • That's a shame. I get more for every hour billed. 
    • I was just going to ask this. I have heard that, in some cases, it really can be worth it. 

      However, at times, I doubt whether my hours will really contribute to the size of my bonus. Does it really matter whether I'm 200 hours over or 300 hours over? If all of my colleagues hit the target plus some hours won't we all just get about the same amount? We don't talk about it here (obviously super faux pas to ask fellow associates what their bonus was) and a part of me believes that the difference in bonus between an associate with 50 hours over and an associate with 300 hours over is marginal.
