I received a question in a PM that I think would be beneficial for others to read my response, and with the users permission I will repost the question and answer here:
"I am just curious, and I apologize if you have already answered this elsewhere, how come you chose to attend Windsor for law school? You seem to have an abundance of positive experiences and perspectives when it comes to Windsor Law. Did you think so fondly of the program before attending, or has it grown on you so much?"
"I'm one of those classic cases of choosing Windsor based on limited selection. I was waitlisted at a couple schools but Windsor stroked my ego by admitting me very early so I chose to attend and I heard the job prospects for Toronto were decent.
I had some reservations about the school, program, and city before I attended, but I decided to keep an open mind. I was struck by how friendly everyone was at the school and the willingness of the faculty and career services to help students succeed. I think it has grown on me, but I never developed a negative impression of the school, and my experiences haven't proven me otherwise. When you get into the midst of applying for jobs you realize how little it matters what school you attend (at least on the surface - I don't know if I was rejected from some job considerations due to the school, but I doubt it). The fact is that Windsor is cheaper than other schools, the cost of living is lower, and there's actually some nice scenery in the city and decent restaurants, pubs, and even nightclubs. You'll quickly find when you're hanging around at the 'lounge' area of the school (we call it the pit) that you'll just talk to people and feel like you know everyone.
I guess that's what has appealed to my positivity about the school and why I feel its important to reassure people who have some of the thoughts I had initially about the reputation, and other 0L concerns that don't really matter, that it's a great school to attend."
