I'm curious to know if anyone knows of someone who transferred to McGill after 1L. I looked at my grades from the fall semester, calculated them on the McGill Law grading scale, and found that I fall in the B+ range. Does anyone have any insight as to anyone who transferred to McGill and what grades they came in with?
Thank you for your time!
I could be wrong but I don't think there are any firms participating in Toronto OCIs that are as small as the OP is describing. And I'd be shocked if any OCI firms pay below $1000/wk - let alone $650/wk - since the biggest firms are now paying close to $2000. They just wouldn't be competitive in the recruit.
I work with the feds as a junior policy analyst and my degree is in Economics and Math. There are a few folks with MPPs/MPAs that I have worked with and one recovering lawyer. What I have gleaned is that there are a variety of academic disciplines represented in the world of policy wonkery, but an MPP is a great way to get your foot in the door. It is however not the only way. Doing a JD/MPA is unlikely to add substantial benefit to your career as a lawyer, and a JD might be sufficient to get yourself into the world of policy. Additionally, I'm wrapping up my MPP online from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, so if you find you hate the practice of law and still think an MPP might be essential, you can earn it while working (though I'm unsure how feasible that is given the strenuous nature of law).
Best of luck!
