Another thought I had - not to derail this thread - is how/why does UofT seem to win awards at nearly every moot? Is there something they do that other schools don’t? I realize it’s a difficult question that students most likely won’t be able to answer because only a student would know their school’s mooting practices but I’m genuinely curious.
I don’t think this is true. While UofT definitely has higher admission standards than the other schools in Ontario, I don’t think think that directly translates into UofT student = smarter and brighter than all other law students. Even to go to/get into UofT, requires a certain amount of privilege, that not all law students will possess. And there are a number of reasons to choose one school over another. Also, one may be successful at the undergrad level and not as successful at law school, that’s just the nature of the curve.
