How has it gone?

Good! I’ve got a few more meetings tonight, so I’m cautiously optimistic. I won’t be posting whether I get a job or not for confidentiality reasons, though!

Good idea. There will only be a handful of students from each school who get a position. Being 1/15 from osgoode would narrow it down quite a bit lol

I know this thread has been about private firms, but there were a few MAG positions and other public interest participants in the 1L Toronto recruit as well. Did anyone else here interview for them/want to talk about them?

Since calls have definitely gone out now, congratulations to those who have been offered positions! 

If you didn't get a position, remember that there are many opportunities in the second year recruit, and quite a few which may align better with your practice areas of interest and your personal values. 

Remember that even getting interviews is an accomplishment, and we should all be proud :)

I interviewed at the Superior Court and haven't heard anything. Happy to discuss/would love to know if others have heard back!

This is also not part of the formal 1L recruit, but has anyone heard back from the Law Commission of Ontario?

I heard that they set up three interview dates for first interviews - this past Friday, yesterday, and today. Unsure if it was just for that particular position or for all of them, but I believe this was for tax.

    • So you’re saying you didn’t work your ass off to get into university, maintain a high GPA, pass the LSAT, get into law school, maintain good grades in law school, kill articling interviews, work yourself to the grindstone during articling, pass the bar, and now you’re where you are? this whole “white privilege” discussion is total bullshit and nonsense. I don’t understand the guilt people have for being successful. And you shouldn’t be guilty for your parents having worked that hard to provide a good life for you as I’m sure you will for your kids. 
    • Maybe in some positions, but definitely not in others, including mine.  Unless I have court, I schedule whatever I want and do whatever I please. As long as the hours are there, no one cares. 
    • Work. I love having a schedule that I cannot miss for any reason and getting paid to adhere to it and work on practical, real-life matters. I love having that sense of direction too, as well as just knowing that no matter how small the task I'm working on is, it is still meaningful. I learn a lot more too and retain it far better. I want to wake up in the morning and get started on my day, whereas when I'm in school I constantly yearn for the weekend. I feel a lot more anxiety in school... I get a bit of anxiety at work too, but I think the stability and meaningfulness make it a lot easier to deal with. Getting paid and not having to worry about how I am going to pay the bills is also an added bonus, but I would probably prefer school if it was structurally more similar to a work environment and things were taught in a more hands-on, practical matter.
    • We did actually get an email from the Parkdale intensive back in March, i.e. after the clinic recruit, informing students that they still had unfilled spots so I actually got the sense that it wasn't a very popular clinic, for whatever reason. 
    • It's a realistic statement. It may seem harsh to those waiting but it would be disingenuous, and dishonest, to instead tell someone the opposite. Most people who are waitlisted, at any school, do not end up receiving an acceptance. It's also a statement that was likely referencing those who have made provisional acceptances at another school and who shouldn't dismiss those in hopes of getting in off a waitlist.
