Transfer to U of T for 2L

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

I realize there has been past discussions on this topic but i was hoping to get an updated one going and to ask the forum a few questions relating to transferring to U of T. I currently go to a law school in Ontario. 

1) What kind of 1L grades will be competitive for acceptance as a transfer student?

2) Will U of T care about my undergrad cGPA? 

3) Will my transfer make a difference when  OCIs roll around? Will firms look favourably on the transfer or will it just not matter? Will i be compared with students from my old school or U of T?

U of T is my alma mater and my dream law school, unfortunately i did not have the grades to get it but im looking to transfer at the end of this year.

1) I was accepted with A- GPA but went to OZ instead. My GPA may be just average among those who was accepted.

I remember someone from Windsor was accepted and he/she  was third in his/her 1L  class. 

2) not sure- but most likely will be a factor.

3) you will be compared with students from your old school.

good luck

Is A- the cut off? From my school (Western), that's Dean's list (top 10%), so I don't think it would make sense transferring to Toronto only for better opportunities.

    • You are still young. If you are in your first year and you don't know what to do, I suggest you try out an economics course. It's one of the few Arts degree mistaken as business while keeping close ties with its cousins: Political Science, International Relations, social science etc. Students in those disciplines have the flexibility in the job market to apply for finance/bank jobs like business undergraduates do and generally hired in government policy-related jobs as well. If you like working with numbers, suck at writing (like me) and want to try out lots of things before you seriously decide on pursuing post-graduates it's a good choice of degree.
    • I certainly had less money as a law student, but I had significantly more free time and less responsibility. However, I was the type of person who could get above average grades without doing all the readings. I was exercising 6x a week and playing a lot of video games in law school.
    • No really it's a lovely little ceremony to mark an important life milestone.
    • Gotta say, one thing in this thread I absolutely cannot relate to is the idea that law school is "three more years of not being a full adult". I had way more money, way more free time, and way less responsibility working an actual job than I now do in law school. lol.
    • I did the Vancouver recruit and my experience is that they won't necessarily make eye contact either. Some of my interviewers were using two devices so they weren't looking at me most of the time. One set of interviewers didn't even have their camera on. Then there are the ones that are new to the platform and don't know how to let you in, or have sound issues, or were tuning in on their phone, or from a large board room, or whatever. All this is to say, don't worry too much about eye contact.
