  1. The 100k difference is so irrelevant, because you'll make way more money over your life working in Toronto. Working in Toronto for 40 years, assuming a modest 30k average premium on your salary, you'll make an extra $1.2M over 40 years. It'll be harder to land a good job in Toronto studying in Victoria. It's already hard enough for UofT and OZ students. Again, we don't know each other, so I don't mean to pressure you in any direction. Just stating what I would do and why.
  2. York Tuition: 27k Rent/living: 15k Total over 3 years: 126k Median Salary in Toronto: 95k UVic Tuition: 9k Total after 3 years: 27k Median Salary for Canada as I couldn't get UVic numbers: 75k So it would take you ~5 years to make back that 100k difference. Personally, I would pay my dad back the 100k and go to Osgoode, but it's up to you.
  3. You guys already know about these books. They are in mint condition: basically brand new. Currently $250 on Amazon https://www.amazon.ca/dp/0990893405?tag=duc12-20&linkCode=osi&th=1&psc=1 $50 more, I can include all the workbooks
  4. I'm looking to get this book myself, but I live in Toronto. Any way I could get this from you? Over Ebay perhaps?
  5. You're right, but the people here are claiming that even the US market is too difficult for T30 schools, which is just not the case.
  6. Everyone talking about bad job prospects but the data says otherwise? https://lawschooli.com/law-school-employment-rate-data/ I guess the firms prefer locals, but I can't imagine it being incredibly difficult for a law grad to get a work visa in the states.
  7. Where and when can you meet in Toronto? Can you PM me?
  8. I wouldn't choose majors based on this. Pick a major based on your interests and strengths. Psych is a BSc whereas sociology would be a BA, so there is going to be differences in the type of material you have to learn, and the types of assignments/exams you'll get.
  9. Many schools look at last 2 and UofT looks at last 3. http://lawstudents.ca/forums/topic/39600-lsatgpalor-resource-updated-in-november-2014/
  10. Yeah, linear regression isn't really the appropriate model for calculating the probability of getting in. An accurate model would be some function that depends on LSAT, GPA, and all the other factors involved in the process. You're right that there are outliers that skew results, but there aren't enough of them to make a noticeable difference. I still hold that if my LSAT score and GPA are at the median, I am most likely getting in. I really like my chances if my GPA and LSAT are better than 50% the GPAs and LSAT scores that got in.
  11. Could you also post the standard deviations? There are upper cut-offs. They're 4.0 and 180. Anyway, it seems that this post is mostly false and that if you can hit the median for both GPA and LSAT, you are most likely getting in.
