    Best time to take vacation during articling

    Exactly...there is no magic to this.

    Why you shouldn't go to U of T Law

    Agreed...you will likely have more debt then if you attended other schools, so it may take longer, but it will happen.

    Why you shouldn't go to U of T Law

    I am surprised anyone accepting an offer from the U of T wouldn't have been aware of these issues. No one forced them to enroll at U of T.

    Personal Statement Length

    Agreed. You can and should be no more then 750 words.

    Suits For Men

    A great option but as you suggest more as a change of pace.

    Lawyer Couple: Toronto Life- legal salaries

    This is key. If either you aren’t planning on pursuing biglaw or money isn’t an issue it is difficult to justify the more expensive schools. As frequently noted on this forum there is relatively little to differentiate Canadian law schools. There are some exceptions. For example if it’s biglaw or bust the U of T may warrant the additional expense. In most instances, however, save your money. A law degree is a great asset but no guarantee of financial security.

    Articling options under consideration

    It’s very concerning. Bringing Ryerson law on line will only exacerbate the problems.

    Lawyer Couple: Toronto Life- legal salaries

    They are comfortable enough with their circumstances to have them published. I know many people who left biglaw. Who knows what opportunities this couple may have had.

    ON Chances? (3.51 cGPA/ 3.88 L2 / 168)

    Write a strong personal statement and you will have a good shot at U of T. Basically equal weight to GPA, LSAT and personal statement.

    Lawyer Couple: Toronto Life- legal salaries

    I was more commenting on the facts the wedding dress was several multiples more expensive then the suit. I’ve watched Say Yes to the Dress more times then I care to mention. It is, as you say, easy to spend more than $4,500 on a wedding dress. Kleinfelts has racks of them north of that price. Personally I coukd never see spending 5 figures on a wedding dress but for some it fulfills a childhood dream. If so go for it. Agreed on the far greater utility of the suit but I expect the purchase of a wedding suit rarely, if ever, is fraught with the emotion so frequently invested in buying a wedding dress.

    Privilege is...

    That is why economic circumstances, social class or however you want to identify it has to be considered whenever diversity and inclusion are discussed.

    U of T Chances: 3.84 B3, 168, Weak softs.

    Any value EC’s may have is from being integrated into your personal statement. Regardless don’t need EC’s to write a killer personal statement.

    Privilege is...

    This year 35% of the 1L class at U of T self identifies as visible minorities/persons of colour. Also this class is 57% female. We could be having very different discussions 5 or 10 years down the road.

    Same way a high LSAT could make up for a poor personal statement.
