I really need some help deciding between these two. Below I will list the reasons why.
UAlberta Pros :
I'm born and raised in Calgary so I will be able to move all of my things up there no problem
My partner goes to university in Calgary so it would be easier to visit him throughout the year
The tuition cost is much lower (~$13,500) as well as the standard of living (no PST). I know I would save a lot of money on rent and food as well as tuition.
Alberta Human Rights Commission connection is a huge plus for the career path I would like to take in law.
My whole family has recently moved to Toronto and I'm very close with them. I'm worried about being so far away from my support system.
I will be closer to family if I attended Uottawa.
They offer a specialization in social justice which I would definitely do.
The potential to have a different experience as I have grown up in Calgary my whole life.
I have heard it may have the better reputation in terms of law schools, but I am unsure about how accurate that it.
Extremely expensive tuition ($20,000) which will mean I will need to cut costs on an apartment and food.
I don't speak French. I have heard from multiple people that when you graduate this will definitely impact job opportunities. I'm unsure to what extent this is true and would like insight if anyone has it.
I would really appreciate your input!!!!
