Normal not to hear back yet?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone else hasn't heard anything back yet? I know they send offered as late as June. However, my status remains blank and I have not received any emails.

 

For reference, I submitted all my documents about 1 month before the deadline.

GPA 3.7

L2 3.91

LSAT 157

 

I thought I'd have at least been waitlisted by now.

You're more likely to hear something after the acceptance deadline for those offers that have currently been sent out. It's usually March 31, but I believe it was changed to sometime in April to account for the circumstances at this time.

I got waitlisted and then rejected with almost identical stats 2018/2019 cycle. March is still pretty early though you can hear back as late as August

I have similar stats and have yet to hear back. It's been an anxious wait to hear back from them but I assume with the current situation, replies will be delayed.

    • Hmmm. I wonder is that means that Edmonton is less competitive in a way? I know a few people from Bond who are working as they normally would. Similar road as any other person with an international degree. Although all three are working at private firms, no big firms.  I have also heard that local people get precedent. Chatting on this thread again just makes me happy I wrote the lsat and am going the normal route. Although everyone's path is different.   
    • I don't really know about the variance in culture, but it's possible that more rural locations might be getting more local applicants, whereas the bigger cities are getting applicants from all across Canada. If your firm is getting applicants from all of the "top" Canadian law schools, someone who went to Bond probably starts off lower down the rankings during recruitment. Whereas a smaller town might have had the vast majority of its applicants go to local law school X.  I love the Gold Coast and wish I had gone to school there, but I've had about a half dozen friends go to law school at Bond and they all went because they couldn't get into a Canadian law school, so the assumption that employers make isn't without merit. All of my friends have had a tough time finding employment after they've returned to Vancouver, and their job outcomes have ranged from articling at small firms in the suburbs to doing an LLM at UBC to make themselves more competitive for bigger firms to being hired as a contract lawyer by a large firm.
    • Thanks for the comment! I asked a friend in Calgary and she said the same thing as you! So potentially they feel the same in Calgary. Do you think there is a variance in culture maybe? It would be interesting to see what the response is in Saskatoon for example. Or even more rural where it might be less competitive.  I've definitely heard it described as a "backdoor" way of going to law school. Although, it's more work so not really sure it it is worth it. But I know some people just go because they want to live in Australia and don't mind tacking on the extra time. Expensive though.   
    • Hello, everyone in BC please email Law Society (Member Services) if you have been affected due to COVID-19, I have sent them 3 emails till now, and haven't received a reply. Please email them so they take some kind of action. 
    • it might be difficult in general for you to switch to in house though, covid or not. Boutique litigation doesn’t really lend well to that
