Devastated. 10 interviews. Countless hours of prep and anxiety and left cold.

I feel the same way. 6 interviews, 2 second rounders that went excellent (or so I thought). I honestly thought I would get offers from both and have to choose...should have remained without expectations :(

Seems to be the recurring theme this year unfortunately. Just know you're not alone! We'll all get through this somehow.

Well at this point I suppose all the offers have been made. Question is how many have been accepted, how many are on ice, and how far up on the waiting list are you. 6 p.m. and after could still produce something.

They might if someone was holding onto an offer and declined it once they got their top choice firm. Almost all positions will be settled within 10 minutes of call day, but it does happen every year that some offers are given/accepted later.

Giving a call to the recruiters for the firms you're very interested in doesn't hurt.

Also, my friend who interviewed at a MAG office was told that they would be sending out offers at the end of the week instead of today!

Interesting! Do you know which MAG office this was?

The end of the WEEK?! How does that make any sense? People will be forced to accept earlier offers. Does that apply to ALL MAG offices?

do you know which office this was? I interviewed with CLOC (Crown Law Office - Civil) and they said they were following the Law Society Guidelines. And I didn't get a call ..

    • 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.
