U of T vs top US

I am sorry, but it looks to me that no one cared to convert the currency. In addition, the so-called high cost-of-living in Toronto really is nothing in comparison to U.S. major cities such as LA, SF, Seattle, after conversion of currency

 

CAD is not USD. From American prospective, University of Toronto's tuition is so cheap that it is unbelievable, even if it is truly the worst "T14 equivalence"(for lack of a better word)

Year of data = 2020

Total Estimated Cost combined. 

Georgetown Law Center

97,500 USD~=127,376.92 Canadian Dollar

University of Toronto:

50,435 CAD

Georgetown is 151% more expensive than Toronto. 

 

*I concede that the final bill may be very different once the financial helps from OSAP and school's financial aids are factored in. 

*I also concede that Toronto is more expensive than the rest schools. 

 

I think a poor man's T14 is a good analogy. It is just to me, it is a praise, not an insult. 

 

Am I asking too much of law students to convert currency? Are lawyers really so bad with math? I am so stunned. Forgive me please if you can. 

 

I mean, I'm not sure what converting currency and math have to do with one another since USD rates change on a daily basis.

Oh source: worked in the banking industry for six years.

 

Edit: Also, this thread started in 2018 and ended in 2018.

I am sorry. I moved from U.S.A. and just got very confused when people complain about the cost of living in Toronto and the tuition fee of U of T. 

 

I am paying by USD after conversion. Everything looks so cheap like a heaven. 

-----------------

Either way, let me stop here. No necessarily want to start any fight, mostly just write for the future readers. Sort of like more data in the report.

You don't need to apologize to me, I'm not offended. Living in another country is always going to be a little different. Imagine moving to India, the conversion rate would blow you out of the water.

You can't keep spewing nonsensical opinions all the time and then resort to a pacifist guise when others rightly challenge those opinions.

    • Can I ask what your stats are like?
    • At least at uOttawa law, English as your second language would not undermine your admission chances. See this: "If English is not your first language, the LSAT, while relevant, may carry less weight in the Admission Committee’s evaluation of the application." (https://commonlaw.uottawa.ca/en/students/admissions/admissions-criteria). Overall, I think that you have a good chance at the Common Law Section as the law school admits a lot of new immigrants and mature students every year. Your cGPA is also very strong. Relatively weak chances at Western and Queen's because the two law school are more difficult to get in compared with uOttawa law. In my view, you may have a better chance at Western law than Queen's as Western seems to place a great emphasis on cGPA these days. Good luck!
    • That's the spirit! 😁
    • Cool! Glad to help, and congratulations on the job! When hiring teachers, of course, "how close to the start date" often (usually) means "how close to the start of classes," or something similar, and it's obviously a very bad thing to leave students with no teacher and the school scrambling to find someone. So they get cranky when that happens. I can only suppose that there are analogous circumstances in law and every other field.
    • Sup GreyDude, Ended up just asking for 30 minutes to consider the offer - all of the employers were happy and didn't mind.  However, this was still a useful message as I am also within the sphere of Education (BEd 2018 from Laurentian University).  I might go back to teaching (or maybe lecturing at universities) at some point in my career   Thanks a lot!
