I imagine if your friend has yet to hear from the other firms they are likely not receiving a second interview from those firms. From my understanding, firms move quickly in this process.

That's entirely possible...my friend attends school outside AB and their OCI was a week earlier than UofC/UofA, so firms might decide who to invite to second round even before they conduct OCI in UofC/UofA (I believe it was on last Wed/Thu). 

Wondering if anyone from UofC/UofA has heard anything yet...

Thanks for the info. I'm also curious about students in Alberta, hopefully we'll hear something soon in this thread.

I'm sorry. Although I have heard that some Edmonton firms are only just calling students for second interviews now.

U of A Student here. I was offered four 2nd interviews within the same day of the first interview. It seems as though they do move quite quickly through the process. Yet, it's somehow drawn out over a 3 week period. I've had a couple 3rd interviews at this point

*This is for the Calgary recruit

It’s probably nicer than doing everything in 2.5 days and cutting firms out that you’d have accepted offers from simply because you don’t have time for them and want other firms more... and then leaving the week with zero offers.

Would you mind telling me which Calgary firms called you for a second interview?

I had my second with Gowling on Wednesday. One of my interviewers reached out on Thursday and scheduled me in to do virtual coffee with one of the partners for tomorrow and the recruiting chair has contacted me about doing another social. Not sure about BD&P though... I didn't even get a first with them!

Was also really hoping for Gowling, but no call. Oh well, good on us for trying I guess.

    • I did the Vancouver recruit and my experience is that they won't necessarily make eye contact either. Some of my interviewers we using two devices so they weren't looking at me most of the time. One set of interviewers didn't even have their camera on. Then there are the ones that are new to the platform and don't know how to let you in, or have sound issues, or were tuning in on their phone, or from a large board room, or whatever. All this is to say, don't worry too much about eye contact.
    • I know Ultra Vires publishes a piece on the U of T recruit + grades every year (I’ve actually helped work on it in the past), but it’s always acknowledged that the survey can be quite biased/not totally representative for many reasons, plus it’s just a bunch of anonymous numbers without personal context. As such, if anyone has any anecdotal experience with grades/OCIs from U of T, insight would be appreciated! Personally, my 1L grades were probably pretty below average (fingers crossed for better success this term!), although it’s tough to determine what “average” means at U of T and how employers look at our grades. On the other hand, I’d like to think I have a pretty extensive amount of relevant work/volunteer/extracurricular experience, so I’m truly not sure how I’ll fare. 
    • Ah, I was under the assumption that this was a one-off or maybe a two-off. On the one hand, what's another W if you already have a lot? On the other hand, not having any more W's supports your upward trend. On the third hand, if you take your licks and accept the poor midterm mark, you can still technically have an upward trend. Upward trends involve minor fluctuations, getting one bad mark doesn't undo the entire trend.  If you're not applying in the general category (as opposed to access), then I would keep the grade to demonstrate that you've overcome the things that made you withdraw from courses earlier in your degree. If you're applying access, take the W if you can explain the aspects of your life that necessitated withdrawing.  FWIW, I had poor marks in 1st/2nd year but my grades trended upwards as I continued. I still had some awful marks in my last 2 years, but they didn't undo the fact that overall I was clearly a better student than I used to be.
