I know of at least one person who just got an SCC interview invite. I will say, I am surprised by the fact that it came on a Sunday evening. Happy waiting to everyone. 

From a specific justice, or the panel? (If you can say!)

Two justices. But it is clear the email would have contained the invite from the committee if one were to be extended.

Committee interviews have also been going out since last night.

Also, who’s using the committee and who’s doing their own interviews?

The Chief is doing his own interviews early via Skype and all offers seem to have gone for that. Judges not participating in the panel are Abella, Moldaver and Rowe.

Doesn't seem to be over yet - just got an email now for the committee and two justices.

If we haven't heard yet, can we assume we're out of the running?

Crossing my fingers for you! 

 

Anyone have any tips for prepping for the committee?

My best piece of advice is to be in touch with current clerks, particularly ones who are grads of your school. I offer this advice every year and you'd be amazed how many applicants don't take advantage of the assistance current clerks can provide. This is true at all levels of the court, and, at many, clerks are a part of the interview/hiring process.

Agreed - this is invaluable.

Anyone know if SCC sends rejection emails? 

Also if anyone hears back today, and the interview invitation process is still rolling, please let us know!

A few judges at the Federal Court were conducting interviews yesterday in Toronto. Heard through the grapevine that at least one FCA justice (no idea who) had extended offers for interviews, but that it was likely other justices would only begin sending out offers after the SCC process wrapped up.

I was told that they are sending rejection emails this year.

    • I took the LSAT in July and was one of the test centres that got the digital exam. I personally found it way better than the traditional paper exam. I personally didn't have any issues with it, but i've heard of people who did. I especially appreciated the timer in the top right which said exactly how much time you have left in the section. One thing I did which I found helpful (although I realize it may not be for everyone), was I tapped on the time to hide it for most of the section to prevent me from constantly checking on it. Then, when there was 5ish minutes left in the section, I would tap it again to make sure I filled in all the questions and got to any questions that I may have flagged to review. Overall, in my one experience with it, I found that there were no hiccups and I actually found the timer and other aspects (such as highlighting, changing fonts, screen layout, tapping the bubbles as opposed to filling them in with a pencil, etc.) of the digital version to be beneficial to me. It's definitely not for everyone but I preferred it to the paper exam.
    • Also read Hoju’s absolutely amazing response to one of your earlier threads here:   Now read it again. And then one more time.
    • Stop drinking coffee and instead of walking, go for a run. You have a ton of nervous energy you need to 1. Expend and 2. Stop feeding.  I am not going to internet diagnose you. But I want you to consider whether you are using this site for reassurance seeking and/or obsessive info checking. People who have Anxiety (capital A) fall into a number of recognizable patterns. One of those is obsessive information gathering, and one of those is reassurance seeking. These patterns address a sense of paralysis and mask the fact that you cannot move forward with decisions and have peace of mind. If you find you cannot function - and even begin to panic - unless some one is constantly right there with you telling you that you are making all the right choices and setting out exactly what happens next, and assuring you it will all be ok, you are probably getting in over your head and Anxiety may be the culprit. Anxiety is a real honest to goodness diagnosis along with Diabetes and Depression. If this is what you are dealing with, it’s  really time to stop feeding it and start treating it.  You can feel better. This can get better. But get help.   Edit: in case this comes across as presumptuous, I have Anxiety. I treat it. Before I did, Life was pretty fucking shitty. So this is all with the very best wishes for you going forward if this is your particular demon.
