I am a Canadian studying law in the U.S. I am a second year student attending school in the DC area.
I plan to get some work experience in the U.S. before heading back. My family is in Canada and eventually i want to settle in Canada because i have been travelling in the states for so long and going to school here, I've decided that I want to move back eventually.
If you study in the U.S, you have one year of OPT (optional practicl training) after graduation and then you can get any work experience; and after that you can think about moving back. But yeah, you and I will both have to go take one year of classes to fill in the missing gaps. With the economy the way it is right now in the U.S, i seriously think about moving back home.
As a Canadian, i'm not qualified for a lot of jobs here. In a way, we are considered second-class citizens here unless one of your parents is American and you have dual-citizenship (which many Canadians do if they are in the US).
Regardless, I've had a great education so far and met and seen a lot of things and people that I would never have had the opportunity to see in Canada.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
