UBC vs U of A vs U of C

Recommended Posts

I have been accepted to these three universities so far (UBC, U of C, U of A).

I haven't heard back from any Ontario or American schools yet so, for now, I'm trying to decide between these three. 

U of C is where I did my undergrad, it's my home and I have an absolutely amazing mentor on the Queens Bench Alberta Court. 

That being said, my goal is to work for at least a couple of years in a top law firm at a big city like Toronto or New York. 

WHAT. DO. I. DO?

New York is a different beast, but many of the "top" law firms in Toronto also have offices in Calgary. If it were me, I'd probably stay in Calgary.

UBC has the best rep of the 3 nationally (and probably in New York). All 3 aren't the best options for your goals. Attending any Ontario school is likely better than attending UofC if you want to work in Toronto (maybe other than a select few)

update: Waitlisted at U of T and have still not heard back from Queens, Osgoode, Western, UOttawa or HYS in the states (applied to the best 3 in the states because why not haha excellent learning experience)

    • Just bumping this. It is so important to have at least a base knowledge of criminal law - at the very least, family practitioners should know how to read a recognizance/undertaking, know the process to vary conditions, basic evidence (Khan applications, third party record), and a basic understanding of the more common charges (assault, assault w/weapon, mischief, threats).  The intersection between family and criminal can be fairly interesting and devestating on families. 
    • The ACORN payment site notes that payment may be made by money order or by credit card (which I would really really prefer) whereas The steps for newly admitted students says: ”$500 in Canadian currency, in the form of a certified cheque or money order only, payable to “University of Toronto”. “ anyone with any experiences here who can help me out? Can I pay by credit card?
    • Thanks a lot. Is it okay if I pm you? Guys, any idea when is the earliest one can move in? I was thinking of moving in during the summer ( assuming i pay the deposit, apply for housing and register and end up being allotted).
    • Hi guys, I’m currently a 2L student and I’m curious how law firms look at the CFA program. Anyone found it helpful in securing an article? Or does it generally help in your practice?  Thanks for all the inputs!
