Post Ottawa 2021 OCIs - Who have you heard from?

Recommended Posts

Hello, this thread is for people from any law school who participated in the Ottawa OCIs. I know that uOttawa starts their OCIs tomorrow, but for those who have already done the Ottawa OCIs, who have you heard from?

So far, I've heard from: Soloway Wright, Nelligan, and Perley Robertson (from OCIs) and Cassidy Levy Kent, Conway Baxter, Mann Lawyers (who did not participate in OCIs).

Just wondering if firms like Fasken, McMillan, Stikeman, Norton, Gowling or BLG have sent out in-firms yet?

I only applied to Gowlings and had my OCI with them this past Friday. I’m assuming they will probably be sending ITCs this week?

BLG is letting applicants know tomorrow about in-firms. Norton is actually conducting the in-firms tomorrow. That's all I got! I think Gowling is letting applicants know towards end of week.

Thank you! 

Also, I thought that Norton was going to call people who they would invite for in-firms at 7 pm tomorrow? 

I read this in their email: "Kindly note that, following OCIs, we will be calling successful candidates that we will be inviting to join us for in-firm interviews at 7:00 pm on February 10, 2021."

Does anyone here have an in-firm with Norton tomorrow?

I received an ITC from Nelligan. Also got ITCs from Conway Baxter and Chiarelli (non-OCI firms). Have not received any other ITCs or PFOs.

That's awesome! I haven't received a PFO from BLG yet, but I also have not received a phone call!

    • 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!
