Vancouver OCI Invitations

Recommended Posts

I think I'm just still reeling from the craziness that is 8 am on call day, but if a firm offers you an 8/9am Monday interview spot and you give them a mid-day Monday spot instead, does this hurt your chances with them at all or is it not a big deal?

Might as well have slapped the managing partner across the face.

Jk, they don't care at all. They understand that you may have multiple interviews and that you may have already scheduled interviews for Monday morning if other firms called first.

Lots of people I know didn’t end up with the schedule they wanted and still got offers.

Good luck to those interviewing!

Thank you for your reply! 

They called right at 8 am, so I think they know they were the first call.  I'm sure you're right though that it isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things.  I think I just needed some reassurance, lol.

Wondering what time we usually get informed about second rounds?

One DT firm HR said "you will hear from us on Thursday" ,  wondering is that common? or it's something new this year? 

Anyone already got call/email about their 2nd rounds?

they said after my interview that they weren’t sure whether they were doing second ones or not. But maybe that was just for me lol

This is interesting... I heard from at least 2 people being told "not sure they were doing 2nd round or not", still not sure it's the new norm under Covid or a polite way of saying PFO.... lol..

They told me that they wanted to get through all the candidates first before figuring out the rest of the week. I guess we'll find out tomorrow

is it a good sign when the interviewer says "you are going to hear from us on call day either way"? or is that just courtesy?

It's a sign that you should relax and wait for tomorrow, cause you are going to hear back either way 🤣

My gut instinct says yes. But I'd be really curious to hear what happens tomorrow. Please update!

Safe to assume it’s over by now, right?

I hope not, but you're probably right.

Not necessarily - some firms will still be calling because they will have spots to fill.

    • Your grades are quite good so I would apply broadly and cross my fingers. The only Canadian law school I've seen that accepts a lot of US transfers from bottom tier schools is U of T. But your grades have to be really good. I'm not sure how they will view your B's. Good luck. 
    • yeah it was a mistake. I posted this in law students when I meant to post in articling students and lawyers and I couldn't delete it after it had been posted. I think I mentioned it in this thread or the one that you linked. 
    • There's been a lot of focus here on IQ but one of the things that makes a good lawyer is a heavy measure of EQ and our friend here McGillicutty has demonstrated why many of my former STEM colleagues lack even a smidgen of EQ.
    • The only thing that matters is that you can get funding at a good interest rate. Scotia has the best offerings, but that doesn't mean that you're out of options if they decline you. In my experience, the bank that you have the longest history with is the one that usually helps you out in situations where your credit isn't up to snuff. 
    • I think you are slightly confused maybemaybe, so I can clear this up for you:  2 year applicants are those that are in their second year of their undergrad degree (will have 60-89 completed credits) by the time they enter law school and they are the ones who require exceptional stats (3.7 and 90th percentile); see excerpt from https://apps.admissions.ualberta.ca/programs/la/la020 ("There is no direct entry from high school into the Juris Doctor program (JD). Exceptional students may be admitted to the program after completing two years of university study with a minimum GPA of 3.7 and 90th percentile Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD."). This applies when you apply in your second year of undergrad.  3rd year applicants are those that are in their 3rd year of university and who will have 90 or more credits by the time they enter law school and they are treated the same as those with degrees. Excerpt from same website " All other students must have completed at least the first three years of a degree before being admitted to the JD." This applies when you apply in your third year of undergrad.  Hope this clears everything up!
