I study law at McGill. There are some highly competitive individuals who can be unpleasant at times (they do not seem to have many friends though), but the general environment at the faculty is not cut-throat. I know a bunch of very nice people who share notes and other useful information, many students form study groups to split the readings, etc. Also, I spent a summer working in Toronto with 2Ls from Ontario Schools. What can I say... McGill crowd is way more chill than the UoT people that I met. I mean no offence to the latter.
