Their follow-up email after the call this morning said the interview will last 1 hour and 25 mins

Any idea why they're asking for dietary restrictions? Given that their website says everything will be virtual, I'm guessing they copied chunks of last year's email and forgot to change it. Anybody heard otherwise?

Im guessing the same. Funny as these firms want their candidate to have "attention to detail".

Tb to Blakes sending PFOs using their in-firm rejection template and then sending a follow-up email "yea still PFO" but now with OCI template 😘

True, but I think in this process, and especially during this time it might be nice to be kind. As someone on the firm side, it is usually a coordinator or administrative assistant who sends those e-mails on the student director's behalf. Not really good form by talking shit about firms before you even embark on your interview process IMO.

Agreed.  You never know who is reading the forums. It often doesn't take long, with a little checking/reading post history, to identify a member here. Just a word to the wise, always a good idea to be careful what you're posting here.

What happens if you miss the call lol do they give your spot to someone else

To my knowledge, they just keep calling or they try some other candidates and come back to you. If you're on their "list" your spot probably won't be given up until you've rejected it. Maybe if you don't pick up for like half an hour (just guessing) they move on so keep your phone with you.

They won't give up your spot. They will keep calling you until you pick up. They may also leave a voicemail or e-mail you asking for you to call back. They won't go down their lists until they have received a firm rejection of an offer.

Firms are already required to keep the offers open for 24 hours. They're not going to cancel an offer because they couldn't get ahold of you for an hour.

    • Hard to answer these kinds of questions given how new Ryerson is. There's just not a lot of data to work with. Anecdotally it does appear that they're weighing GPA more heavily than LSAT for example, but I don't think that there's any granular data breaking down cGPA vs B20.
    • the Ryerson admissions page says they look at the best 20 classes for gpa calculation, how important is the cGPA to them? If your best 20 is good but cGPA is really bad from first year how much can that affect admission? 
    • I get where you are coming from and a decent amount of people are like you and don’t care. I would say if you worked for the Conservative party don’t mention it. It’s not likely to eliminate you from consideration but it is definitely possible. There are enough people who vote liberal or NDP who will negatively associate you with stupidity, white supremacy, supporting patriarchy, you get the drift. Again I’m not at all saying most, I’m just alluding to it’s not worth the risk. I took math in university, economics, philosophy and these courses always seemed to have people on both sides, that were reasonable if there was disagreement. However, there has been one subject where I can honestly say this is not the case and it’s Sociology. Far far left, I’ve taken about 12 sociology courses with different professors and 11 of them were Marxist (they actually said they were) and postmodernist. They said people who believe in human nature are idiots, that things like the legal system that say they are objective do so just to oppress since truth is relative and nothing is objective so the only reason to claim that is to dominate minorities. That if you believe in the free market you are complicit in oppression of people of colour and women, therefore your are racist and misogynistic. I once got in a group for an in class discussion (2 people in a group) and I asked her where are you from, like what’s your background, I didn’t mean it in a bad way, I just wanted to break the ice, build rapport. She said why are you asking? And I told her I was starting conversation and just getting to know her and she said “the only reason you would ask me that is to put me down. There is no reason to bring that up.” I said “what do you mean? I didn’t mean to offend you...” and I went on to say I was getting to know her, we live in Toronto it’s cool to know where people are from, there cultures etc. But she went on to say it doesn’t mean how I meant it, it matters how I made her feel. I said that doesn’t make sense it should be my intent not your feelings. We actually started to get a bit heated, I was genuinely frustrated. She brought it up to the teacher and the prof agreed with her.... her main reason... I was white and she was a person of colour, because of this I was “guilty.” I dropped the class the next day (it was race and ethnicity at u of t). The one brilliant non Marxist prof was jack vuguellers, just amazing. But honestly a lot of the other ones... my god. If it was for the Conservative party it will only hurt you not help you. I’m not sure if law school attracts the post modern type, it seems antithetical to legal reasoning. 
    • Hopefully some good news is coming our way!
