  1. Me every time I see a Ryerson thread: On the good advice of @BlockedQuebecois, I will be taking an indefinite (permanent) break from Ryerson threads. Which is probably a good thing, because I wasted a ridiculous amount of time on this today
  2. If you’re leaning towards working in Toronto and corporate, definitely Queens. If you’re also uncertain about what area you want to practice in, I think Queens might be more forgiving. I tend to think Queens is one of the more well-rounded schools in Canada.
  3. What’s your L2? If you could get your CGPA up to 3.5 I think your chances would be considerably better. Don’t be too hard on yourself re this cycle. I’ve been browsing this site for 3 years and this is the most competitive cycle I’ve seen. Do you have any interesting work/volunteer experience from the last 3 years that you could leverage?
  4. I'm just making an argument for argument's sake. Not surprised. Send me your summaries pls
  5. Not necessarily, because Queens and Western aren't bottom feeder schools that accept people who wouldn't have been accepted anywhere 1 year ago but for the opening of a new law school (Ryerson).
  6. Who's going to be more deserving of a clerkship, someone who graduates at the top of their class at Ryerson or someone who graduates at the top of their class at U of T? Both have the same grades. But getting to the top of the class of U of T is obviously going to be harder. Once again, for context, my SCC clerkship point wasn't an argument in itself, but was meant to elucidate the point I was making with respect to @Rashabon's argument that Queen's could easily be replaced by Ryerson and we wouldn't lose out on anything, which I find to be untrue, since Queen's is a top school, partially evidenced by it's employment data and the fact that it sends clerks to the SCC every year. You guys are grasping at a microcosm in a macrocosm.
  7. For equity partners, but that's mostly at large firms. You lose equity partner status but I'm pretty sure you can still work. Read this, it's pretty interesting. McCormick v Fasken https://scc-csc.lexum.com/scc-csc/scc-csc/en/item/13663/index.do
  8. Are you trying to say that Ryerson is objectively as good as Queens? Because if you are please let me know so I can stop replying. Because at that point this entire argument has been a waste of time and I’m not going to sit here and try to convince you otherwise, because to do so would be like trying to convince a QAnon conspiracy theorist that QAnon isn’t real.
  9. Length of operation really has nothing to do with what I’m arguing. Queens has things that Ryerson doesn’t, and the same is true about Harvard and Brooklyn Law. Period.
  10. You're completely missing the point man lol. You're the one who proposed shutting down one of Canada's better law schools in favour of Ryerson. Come on now.
  11. Why is Harvard better than Brooklyn College of Law? Are we really having this argument? Because it's kind of dumb, no offence.
  12. The question was why shouldn't we shut down Queen's so Ryerson could operate and bring the market back into equilibrium. I said Queen's is an established institution with a longstanding history evidenced by its strong employment placement and the fact that it sends clerks to the SCC every year. None of which Ryerson currently does. I think you're missing the point.
  13. Because Windsor, Ottawa and Queen's are institutions with a longstanding history and an established alumni network. Sure, let's shut down Queen's, which sends clerks to the SCC every year so Ryerson can operate its new, technologically superior law school that emphasizes tech and uses tech to prepare the lawyers of the future by using tech. Did I mention tech?
  14. Y'all are roasting me for a comment that has nothing to do with the nature of this thread. Having said that, nice chimney. I'm actually studying Armory v Delamirie right now, which is a case about a chimney sweep who found a jewel (personal property case about finder's law). Interesting coincidence. YOu should check it out. Fascinating case: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armory_v_Delamirie
