Where to go??? Queen's (CANADA) vs. King's (UK)
« on: April 05, 2007, 01:53:34 PM »
Hi all,

I am a Grade 12 Canadian student who can't decide where to go for university!! I've narrowed it down to 2 choices:
1) Queen's University in Ontario, Canada
FACTORS: I received a scholarship for $36,000.
OR
2) King's College (KCL) in London, England to study LAW.
FACTORS: At King's, the top 2 or 3 students have the opportunity to study Law for two years at KCL and two years at Columbia in the United States, thereby earning both a law degree from KCL and a JD from Columbia in four years.

I'm really having difficulty deciding between these 2 universities and would appreciate any advice or suggestions.

Thanks!

Queen's is a great school, great history, great rep. As far as Canadian Universities goes, this nears the top in everything from liberal arts to law to medical etc.

Can't be much more help to ya sport, sorry.

Have you thought about Ace's? Aces beat both Kings and Queens.

Sorry. I know it's a terrible joke, but I couldn't resist. Good luck with your decision!

You should have resisted.

This reminds me of a "joke" my boss pulled on an employee today.  Employee says "I can't get into Microsoft Word", my boss says "Maybe you should lose a few pounds."

I found out about this fellow who works at Milbank LLP in NYC... He went through the same program, either KCL (2 years) plus Columbia (2 years) or vice versa. He graduated with both a JD and a LLB in the same year, 2006.
