I was recently admitted into Osgoode and Queen's, and am still waiting to hear back from UBC. I am from BC, and hope to practice in BC, but may want to work in Toronto, and eventually hope to pass the NY bar and practice there, if possible.
I love the proximity of Osgoode to downtown Toronto, and know that many grads end up working at prestigious firms in downtown Toronto. As well, I've heard that New York recruits directly form Osgoode. Having said this, I am slightly deterred from choosing Osgoode, as I have heard questionable things about the location and the social aspect at the school. Is there anyone who attended Osgoode who would be able to share some insight on their experience?
As for Queen's, I really like the international opportunities that they provide, and have heard great things about the school community. I am leaning slightly more towards Queen's at the moment, but would choosing Queen's over Osgoode put me at a disadvantage in terms of career prospects? I haven't heard of that many students who have gone off to work in New York from Queen's, but that could be because they never intended to in the first place.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, I really appreciate it!
