Has anyone from UOttawa heard back from Perley?

Wondering the same.. I got a really nice response to my thank you note from Monday evening, yesterday. Which I found interesting. But that’s it.

Any updates from Ravens, Perley-Robertson, Rasmussen Starr Ruddy, Nelligan or Soloway? In general or specifically from uOttawa?

A partner at the firm Im interested in called me out of the blue and we had a good chat. I know it’s a sign of interest that the firm has in me but I wanted to know if i can expect to receive an offer from it tomorrow or is this just standard practice that firms do the day before offers go out

Did you interview with them? Are they a managing partner? Given that tomorrow is call-day, I think its likely positive. There's only a short wait ahead of you :)

Going through the Ottawa recruit for the first time so I'm sorry if this is a silly question - for Call Day summer student offers (tomorrow morning), do firms send out "Intent to Offer" emails before? Or is that not part of the process? Thanks!

Likely no. Employers are not supposed to indicate that they're going to make an offer.

    • 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!
