Let's reset this conversation a bit. When I see a title that refers to "good" money, my first question is what the poster means by "good." Fortunately, OP clarified that, and says he currently nets $5-7k/month. That's $60-84k/year. In order to take that much home, we're talking about a gross pre-tax income of $100k+.
There are definitely areas of law outside of Bay and large firm practice where you can earn a good living. But if you hope/expect/need to make that much out of the gate, I have two warnings for you. First, you won't make that much even on Bay as an articling student or immediately as an associate, though you'll progress there soon if you stick a Big Law position and manage to hold it. And second, no, you won't be there right away anywhere else, aside from a few positions elsewhere that make a point of basically indexing to Big Law incomes in order to compete for the same people. Someone else would have a better summary of those (relatively few) examples.
"Good" is a relative term. Clearly your sense of what "good" money looks like is pretty extreme. I'm not criticizing that, right now. I'm just saying you'll have a hard time satisfying it doing anything other than large, corporate law.
McGill is a mess. Always. The bureaucracy is soul-draining, even for a big research university. Also trying to do anything student-organizing-wise is hellish because of how stifling the administration is.
Also road construction. If you come here, I really hope you like endless construction. That’s more of a Montréal flair, though.
There are some who would posit that you are all fortunate not to have had to sit through a long, hot, boring event. And, some would also add that celebrations can still happen for those who need to celebrate.
