I know, I know it's taboo to talk about pay, but my student loans that will need to be paid off after I graduate definitely has large role in where I would like to end up.
I am hoping someone could help me out with what the expected salary would be for an articling student and year 1,2,3... etc year of call might be at the larger regional firms in Edmonton (any info is much appreciated). I listed some of the larger regional firms in Edmonton for reference, however I would love to hear any feedback from any firms I did not list as well. Also, do most of the regional firms pay very similar salaries/total compensation, and how do they typically compare to Dentons and BJ here in Edmonton and Calgary, not sure if I will be able to land at either of those two large cahunas, trying to keep my expectations realistic.
Bishop & McKenzie
I searched through other posts on here however most info is outdated, well at least I hope so lol, a post from 2006 said 30k was first year associate which can not be true anymore
I'd say quite low, border-lining zero to be completely frank. Your L2 is solid and your CGPA is also quite good, but your LSAT is not competitive at most schools but your L2 may compensate a little. Osgoode though, dismal chances.
Get back to the prep books and start hammering out some practice exams, aim for 160 and you'll be in the running.
