Do many UBC law students live on campus? If so, are the apartments on campus nice or do they feel like dorm rooms? Thanks!

You're really going to have to specify what school you're asking about to get any kind of halfway useful answer.

I went to UBC for undergrad, but I lived in Gage Apartments -- which is the residence closest to Allard Hall -- and there were quite a few law students on my floor and throughout the building. There are other options in that area too, including St. Andrews Hall and the separately managed (but very expensive) Axis Building.  

Gage Apartments is quite nice: the rooms are compact and do feel like (slightly bigger) dorm rooms, but they're very clean and I never had any complaints while I was there. The Gage towers are filled with rowdy second-year undergrads and I wouldn't recommend living there as a law student. I know other law students who lived in the UBC Village apartments and the Wesbrook Village units closest to Save-On-Foods.

The UBC residences aren't exactly cheap: I think Gage Apartments starts at around $1600 a month now, and you'll only be able to stay there during the school year. Splitting an older one or two-bedroom off-campus apartment might be the best move if you'd like to save on housing costs.

Wesbrook village is really the ideal place to live on campus. You're right next to a grocery store and have the option of going on relaxing scenic walks every evening.

    • @easttowest Do you know if there is any advantage (scrutiny-wise) between the two categories? I've applied access and am one year out from being able to apply mature as well (as I was enrolled "full-time" in grad studies while working my first few years full-time, so it delayed that 5 year out of school period). I'm not asking to try and cheat the system in any way--just trying to assess whether I have a better shot this year or next with the mature box checked off. 
    • I'm fairly certain that nothing but press statements have come out. Nothing substantive for colleges and universities to work with.  
    • They're still processing since it seems the bulk of the people Doug Ford consulted with on this are racists and alt-right members.
    • I was accepted around Jan 9/10 and neglected to post until now! cGPA: 3.85 according to OLSAS L2: 3.89 LSAT: 162 ECs: so weak someone told me not to apply to law school 🤷‍♀️ Entirely undecided about what to do about accepting offers as of right now
    • Accepted Dec 19, couldn't believe how early I heard back since I wrote November LSAT! I've no idea what this queue is. cGPA: 3.85 according to OLSAS L2: 3.89 LSAT: 162 LORs: 1 likely very good, 1.. not so great ECs: honestly so bad that someone told me to not even apply to law school, but they include: working part time during school, coaching, an international summer course, and 1 year of school cheerleading .. yikes.    High odds I'm not accepting because of how expensive this will be, but I'm pretty proud of myself anyways, and proud of all the people who worked hard to get in so far!!!
