Yes, it definitely still matters...my decision is going to be largely geographic b/c my sig. other is applying for permanent university positions in several parts of the country---once that's decided, I promise to be considerate---I'll withdraw from all other areas!!!!
I don't know that much on this topic, but a few months ago, I was considering a move to Canada and checked out Canadian law schools. My general impression was that UToronto, McGill, and UBC would rank as very respectable choices. I don't think I ever came across any formal ranking system though.
What's going on with them? I went complete in mid-October, still no word....it looks like they accepted one group of applications in December, then nothing....has anyone heard something from them lately?
