My understanding is that they have to call again until they reach you -  apparently you are under no obligation to call back. 

Where are you hearing this from?  That's not what I was told by Career Services.

Call the firm back.

Wow congratulations! What time did they call? Is there any hope left?

I thought it was over at 8:20, but Julianna Greenspan called just now, so there’s hope!

Just received a call from Stevenson Whelton MacDonald & Swan, so seems like some firms are going late

For anyone that received an ITC email and no call I would call and follow up by this point. It may just be an oversight (this has happened to a few people I know during OCIs).

What do you do if a firm who sent you an ITC now emails you to say they can't offer you an interview?

Is it because the position has since been filled by their summer students? Or are they no longer offering articles? I suppose there is nothing you can do. An ITC isnt a job offer unfortunately. If they aren't hiring, they aren't hiring. Sorry that happened to you.

Do you know what the end result was for those who never received a call but got ITC? I remember last year, a  summer candidate in OSC got ITC from OSC and didn't get a call, when she followed up, they said it was mistake!

For my colleagues, the mistake was that they should have received a call but did not. Both were offered interviews (one had to decline because her schedule was already full at that point). 

I do think it's worth a follow-up. Contact the person who sent the e-mail. Worse case scenario they also made a mistake and the ITC shouldn't have been sent, but you won't look bad for following up. Best case scenario you're demonstrating interest and initiative.

I just called into Keel Cottrelle - apparently all their calls have gone out.

    • From my experience, I improved my grades drastically when I stopped implementing "boiler plate" statements of the law into my exams. If you are doing any pre-writes beforehand, I would recommend stopping, and instead focus the majority of your space (80%+) on analysis of the facts.  Additionally, ensure that you are showing both sides of every argument - avoid words like "clearly", "obviously" - if it was clear or obvious in the professor's mind, it probably wouldn't be on the exam. To address the clarity element your professor is referring to, I would recommend using lots of headings and sub-headings to divide the issues, so your prof knows specifically which you are speaking to.  If you aren't doing these things already and are able to implement them, you should definitely see some improvement! 
    • I just got my fall grades back and overall I did well. My lowest grade so far has been a B in Criminal Law. It was the criminal law exam I wanted to ask about. I got a B on the exam. My prof said that, while I had alot of good analysis, a lot of my analysis was muddled by irrelevant information. She also said that I am not precise in my writing, and sometimes it is difficult to determine what specific elements of the issue/problem I am trying to arrive at. I scheduled an official feedback session with her. Would there be anything anyone here could advise me on in terms of how to be more precise on exams, and filter out irrelevant information? Has anyone else had this problem? I will say that I panicked on this exam and did not think, at one point, that I was going to write anything at all. So during the exam I started writing and then did not have a lot of time to edit once I finished. I also believe that a B is a perfectly good grade considering my other grades were higher, but I would personally like to get a B+ in this course, considering the class average is a B/B+.
    • I have experience, but it depends on what you want to know exactly
    • Noted.  I will definitely consider UNB, although if you saw my transcript you would cringe, there's lots of 50's and 60's on there from a point in my life where I would have been satisfied with a business degree.  So I'm definitely relying on some of the more holistic schools lol.  I'm capable of much better than that but it's going to take some time or luck to "remedy my standing with God and men" as Machiavelli would say.
    • Queens won't take summer courses. Everyone else will. As for which credits they take, it varies a bit by school but your L2 is roughly your last 4 consecutive semesters. But again, it varies.  Also consider applying to UNB, they'll remove 25% of your worst marks if you've graduated. They will also give you bonus points if you are from the Maritimes.
