If it's a big group dinner with everyone in-firming, then I think you could maybe get away with not going - just say you are already committed at that time but make sure you express interest in a second interview or otherwise coming back to the firm to meet more people.
If it's a dinner that's just you and a couple of the firms lawyers, then I would try to at least reschedule to a Tuesday dinner or lunch or coffee.
Maybe it is different in Toronto, but my Vancouver friends who flat out declined invitations to small dinners did not get offers from those firms, even though they were highly sought after top candidates. Which seems fair to me.
Try for a lunch, perhaps? If you turn down a dinner and the opportunity to meet more members of the firm, while many others have accepted that dinner, then your chances are likely going to be affected negatively. I don't think that should be a surprise to anyone.
Hi all, I come from a percentage school and am trying to calculate my L2 U of A GPA. U of A doesn't seem to have a conversion table available on their admissions site. So far I've found this: https://www.ualberta.ca/registrar/examinations/assessment-and-grading/grade-comparison-guide
Does anyone here know how to convert their transcript to U of A's scale? Thanks
Yes, I'd recommend submitting your application at least a few days before the deadline for the reasons you outlined. (I didn't follow my own advice and I submitted it on October 31. Fortunately, I didn't have any problems.)
According to the OLSAS FAQ, there should be a "Document Tracking" feature in your account where you can track which transcripts and other documents have been received and processed.
