Currently my vague plan is to go to U of T, possibly article in Toronto, and then move back to the West Coast. I am from Victoria, and I would like to practice in Vancouver eventually for the "lifestyle" considerations, proximity to family, etc.
The reason I want to go to U of T is because it is the most prestigious school in Canada, and I think that a degree from there would serve me well. Also, I know a lot of people in Toronto, and have liked the city when I have visited there. I also want to go there because I DO NOT want to go to UVic since I did my undergrad there and am fed up with the lefty politics all the hippies... UBC seems to rank poorly in most regards (especially student satisfaction), so I am kind of adverse to going there.
Now I have read all the talk on this board about how Vancouver is supposed to have a glut of recent law school graduates and correspondingly low salaries, but really, Vancouver is a pretty sweet city IMO.
Anyhow, does my plan seem like a good one (assuming I get into U of T with my 176 LSAT and my 3.7 GPA including all 4 years)? Maybe I should go to UBC? Maybe I should forget the whole country and go to NYU?
