Timetable/course scheduling fall 2019

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi there, 

How much course scheduling flexibility is there in the first year? 

Are many of the mandatory first year classes also available in the summer semester? 

 

Thanks!

1) none

2) none of them are. You would have to retake the following year if you don't pass (extremely rare) or are allowed to take a lighter load in 1L (faculty has allowed this on multiple occasions I've observed).

so, if I understand correctly - zero flexibility outside of picking french or english and if english, you get thrown with one of two profs, not your choice. But, when you do pick between english/french do you get to see which english prof you would end up with?

You'll know which profs you can choose between. But you only get one French section and one English.

I understand all the 1L's take the same 6 courses, but are all 180 students taking the classes simultaneously, meaning is there no flexibility in terms of when the classes are. (ie. french section and english section occur at the same time) ? 

It was my understanding from welcome day that there are 2 english sections, but perhaps I misunderstood.

There are three sections for each class except integration workshop, for which there are more (small classes which meet semi-regularly).

The sections in my year all met at the same time, in different rooms. However this isn't always the case. But it'll almost definitely be on the same day.

Basically, don't expect your schedule in terms of timing to differ much, if at all, from your class mates.

This is actually helpful, since you can plan to study together/your outings more easily/conveniently.

    • I added up U of T's tuition fees in each year ($38,233.45 for 1L, $38,183.45 for each of 2 and 3L), and then subtracted the sum of UBC's tuition ($12,639.36 for 1L and $11,849.40 for each of 2 and 3L).  In fairness, I did miss UBC's student fees, which are "approximately $1,100 per year for J.D. students", so I guess that drops the price difference to $74,962.19.
    • That is what mine has been for months as well. 
    • Here is some more information that I just learned from calling a few schools, for anyone interested in this topic and reading this thread.  When determining cGPA, all ontario schools go by what OLSAS provides, and OLSAS counts all courses taken at an undergraduate level regardless of whether they are counting towards a degree or not. How schools look at L2 is internal and possibly different for each school.  Schools outside of Ontario because they dont go through OLSAS probably also have their own way of looking at cGPA and L2.
    • How did you get to 78,262? I assumed the UofT tuition to be $33,300 and UBC tuition to be $12000. On-campus UBC residence seems to be slightly more expensive compared to grad house at UofT
    • I read that all Canadian law school provide good legal education. What constitutes a good legal education? Ability to find employment, good professors, better network, good clinical opportunities? What would be considered a 'bad legal education'?
