I’ve been so happy to get in to both of these schools but it’s now put me into the tough position of deciding between them. I did my undergrad at UofT, have lived here all my life, and ultimately (in a few years) want to settle in the city. So although I know that UofT would be the best opportunity to do so, I really want to live in BC while I do my law school. I’m looking for an exciting change of pace and atmosphere. Am I crazy to consider rejecting my offer at UofT?
I don’t want to work on Bay St and am interested in social justice law, i.e. environmental, human rights, or even IP. Thus the debt I’d incur at UofT is also a massive consideration for me. That said, it really seems like the connections and opportunities in the Toronto market at UofT can’t be beat. Any wisdom would be appreciated.
