cae:It's not that Ontario schools are stingy with money...it's that they don't have any! You would get a full ride at UMan because with a 3.99 you'd be the only applicant in history to apply there with that kind of GPA. UofT says over 50% of their students get aid and the average amount is 7500 ... which is about 40% of tuition?Anyways, even if you don't want to work on Bay why wouldn't you look at UofT? They are the top school for most areas of law ... not just corporate.
haha ... that's okay, i hate UofT ...anyways, I *personally* wouldn't go the free tuition route but I think this decision needs to be catered towards personal situations.I think a degree from say Osgoode would be worth 10 fold a degree from mu ... and would be well worth the money. The market for lawyers in Canada isn't too peachy either. Firms will look at your school and you have a way better chance at employment coming out of a top school.
Hello,This is a relatively uninformed opinion, however, I'd think that unless you were going to be a corporate lawyer what school you went to wouldn't make a huge difference. Location differences might play a bit of a role, IE if you want to stay in Toronto, an Ontario school might be better for the simple reason that a particular firm may have more alumni. But if you wanted to, heaven forbid, practice in Manitoba (I hate this province!) then going to U of Manitoba wouldn't be a bad idea. (For the record though, compared to where I live I'd take Winnipeg anyday... I'm from Toronto originally and miss Ontario)Cheers!P.S. Caecilius in horto lecto?

I took two years of Latin in highschool and really enjoyed it. Wow, it seems like so long ago. The only ones I remeber are: "Multus pulcera puella video" (I see many beautiful girls)and "Capit tuam in anno est" (Your head is up your a$$)Mind you it's been so long I probably made a bunch of spelling and grammar errors.With regards to your original post, I figure it couldn't hurt to apply and then find out where you get in and what you get offered, decide for sure where you don't want to go and then consider what all the others offer.
