Both rumours. Neither firm has made any decisions yet.

A former colleague (Bay Street lawyer) wrote this post about not being hired back and I think it contains tons of helpful advice.  Check it out and share if you think it could help someone who didnt get hired back: https://nellymosstaghimi.com/2020/05/11/what-to-do-if-you-werent-hired-back/

This article was surprisingly helpful. Thanks for sharing it.

Here is part two (Life After Hirebacks Part 2: Writing Your Own Reference Letters) from the same colleague on writing your own reference letter: https://nellymosstaghimi.com/2020/05/14/life-after-hirebacks-part-2-writing-your-own-reference-letters/

Wildboer hired back 4/4 students today, I wonder how long it will take precedent to update their list.

Apparently not long!

Ha, they hadn't the last time I looked. 

That January 2021 start date is wild.

Yeah, that's essentially a 3-5 month furlough, depending on how late into January they start. Brutal

A friend at a management consulting firm also had a start pushed to January 2021 so it's happening elsewhere too.

For what it's worth, Wildeboer in previous years has offered students a Jan 1 start date as an alternative to the September start. They also issue interest free loans to those hired back to help with the interim between articling and associate employment.

I get that this is supposed to be a perk but the literal indentured servitude that arises makes me chuckle.

    • Just a reminder that Queen's does not actually have a "mature" category. However, they do allow you to cite "age" and "life experience" as valid criteria under the "access" category. This may be a minor difference, but I think it shifts the onus onto you to explain how those factors are relevant to your application. Slightly less straightforward than the schools who have an actual "mature" category. In any case, Queen's Access medians (3.73, 160) are only slightly lower than the regular category (3.76, 161). As a result, even under Access, you're a bit below median - it would be a close call.  It would probably be worth actually calculating your B2 precisely, if you want a more accurate prediction.  As it stands, I concur with Luckycharm's prediction for regular category; for Access I would guess you are very close to 50/50. -GM
    • It's the name of the law school building, not the law school itself. Queen's does not have a named law school like UBC does with Allard, for instance.
    • Language in the article is so confusing. So I understand the law school building is/was Sir John A. MacDonald Hall, but has the law school itself ever actually been referred to as that? 
    • Hey guys! For those of you who have been accepted or working on your application now, would you guys be able to help me with the diversity question on the application? Im kinda stuck on this one as I cant really think of what to write about. Reading on some online suggestions, a lot seem to suggest that diversity is not simply race, ethnicity, sexuality, socio-economic status etc etc. Would anyone be able to send some help??? 😥
    • This^ When I was offered an interview by the Treasury Board Secretariat (a gov't entity), the person on the phone said to me straight up they don't mind me putting them on my last day because the interviews are all scored quantitively. Gov't also doesn't care about the first choice game either - because again, they rank everyone by a score and just call from the top down until they fill their slots.
