  1. I am also heading into 1L and had the same struggle choosing between the two schools. I spent a lot of time looking into both and all I ever heard is that everything is pretty well equal between the two schools as far as quality and giving you opportunities to work in Vancouver. The only difference is really in having to travel to and from the island, which is inconvenient for networking in Vancouver. Recruiting firms tend to make trips to both schools. I ended up choosing UVIC in the end just because it seemed like a nice chance to live on the island for a while, and because housing within a reasonable commute was cheaper than at UBC. My best advice would be to go with where you would rather spend the next few years! Neither choice is a bad one.
  2. I have decided to decline my offer and will be heading to UVIC in the fall, good news for somebody still waiting! Best of luck to all
  3. I am wondering if UVIC students who end up working the summer at a Vancouver firm have a tough time finding a place to live during that time. Does anyone have any experience that they could share?
  4. I won't deny that UBC's reputation is better, but due to some appeal from cheaper real estate prices in Victoria and the likely shorter commute, I think it's a good idea to see if the difference is actually very substantial or more or so just ..."fluff".

  6. I am also trying to decide between UVIC and UBC, and was wondering if anyone could offer up some information to compare UBC's LSLAP and UVIC's Law Centre.
  7. Status also changed to offer! 163 LSAT, 3.99/4.33 GPA before drops. Congrats everyone. Very excited. Now just to decide between uvic and ubc!
  8. Accepted a few minutes ago! Very excited. LSAT: 163 GPA: 3.99/4.33 before drops (probably about 4.07 with drops) Submitted in the last week of October
  9. Hello! I'm currently an undergrad student at TRU. I am just trying to gather info and prioritize schools as I will likely be applying in the fall. It is mainly between UVIC and TRU for me (although I will probably apply at UBC and U of C as well). I've come up with a few pros and cons for my top two, but would love some input from current students, especially about UVIC. If anyone has any info about the likelihood of obtaining scholarships/bursaries at either school I would also like to take that into consideration. Pros of TRU: - family lives here, and so do I (can always move back in with my parents if i need to) - fairly cheap rent - I hear TRU is the best for getting positions in the interior, which would be nice - TRU has a nice campus Cons of TRU: - high tuition - new school, not a lot of info about it out there - Kamloops is a pretty boring city Pros of UVIC: - Law Co-op program - lower tuition - fair weather in winter - better reputation - also a pretty nice campus, beautiful city Cons of UVIC - higher cost of living - moving away is obviously a little less convenient I am essentially just trying to gather as much information as I can in the off chance that I end up having to choose between the two. It would also just be nice to be able to answer people when they ask me where i'd like to go haha. If anyone has any convincing arguments for other schools, I am certainly open to that information as well! Thank you
  10. On campus gym is phenomenal, probably one of the best things about TRU. It is a public building so you have access to an outdoor track, indoor track, basketball courts, huge actual gym section, plus an olympic sized pool and a gymnastics area. Only downside is you only get a 50% discount compared to the public, but it is well worth it in my opinion.
