My email said end of February and I've yet to hear anything.

Me too. I haven't heard anything yet. Has anyone tried contacting Leanne?

I phoned last week and Leanne said that for those who received an email originally stating end of February would most likely hear back mid to end of March since they are still looking at applicants who applied at the end of October/early November.

Well that's disappointing to hear...

I also applied in late November (prior to the early application deadline). I received an email saying to expect a reply by the end of February and haven't heard anything yet. Glad to hear other people are in the same boat though.

In a similar boat. Applied in January, was told I would hear by the end of February - no word yet.

I called late January just to make sure that my transcripts arrived from Alberta. Leanne said, at that time at least, that she'd likely have an update going out late feb/first couple weeks of March. 

Shouldn't be long now I hope.

I called yesterday and I was originally told the end of Feb. but she said with the holistic application process it is just taking a little longer. Applications are processed as bunches (I am not sure how they determine those "bunches").  She gave me a new estimate of mid-late March

Nope! This was the first email I've received since the email TRU sent back in November acknowledging receipt of my application. However, I did apply last year and received no invite to any open house

    • @herpsderps123 No, it won't ! You can submit all your assignments and exams in the language of your choice regardless of the language of instruction of the course. So, even if you end up in all French classes, you can still submit your assignments in English if you prefer writing in English (or vice-versa for anyone who prefers to write in French in an English course). 
    • My understanding is that "research lawyer" means very different things at different places--I heard that research lawyers at one large firm, for example, can't become partner. In another bay street firm, they work is more like librarian work than lawyer work. In another firm, they seem to be well paid, have great work-life balance (relatively speaking), and do really interesting work (think: doing research into weird equity issues, drafting facta, researching lesser known commercial law things, etc.--they're separate from the knowledge management group mentioned above, which is less legal work and more managing precedents and things). I think (although I may be wrong) that one common thread is that there's very little client interaction unless you're a partner in the group. Also you never have to do doc review, which is a huge plus. As you can imagine, the job qualifications at the second firm is probably a lot different at the last firm listed. And this is just among the big firms/big name boutiques that I'm familiar with--I'm sure there are a million more permutations for what "research lawyer" means. If you PM, I can give you more details about the firms I described.
    • Yes and no. 8:30 a.m. in Newfoundland is technically before 8:30 a.m. in BC. Even though they tell you not to discuss I bet it'd be possible, for instance, to find out online which section is experimental (for the regular in-person LSAT, where the experimental section exists) for those living in an Eastern province. But of course writing the same test on a different day is a whole different situation. 
    • I can also confirm first hand that this happens. I was a first year call working off Bay (outside of ON in fact) when, with the help of recruiter, I was hired at a large Bay St firm.  Although not municipal law, like @hearsayheresy I was hired into a rather specialized practice group.  So it definitely happens, but you do need a fair dose of luck and good timing on your side. Happy to discuss my experience if you'd like @whoknows
