I wasn't WISHING for one. Just saying it makes more sense than leaving us hanging. I definitely don't want one though.

I am loathe to go to a Canadian law school when I've invested so much into this. But since I will probably have to reapply next year anyways if I don't get into Columbia, I will just add in U of T for safety. Plus... They only charge 27k a year.

Haha, I know, I feel the same but I figured that 1000 in the long run isn't that much, plus I would be basically delaying employment for another year, and lose another year before I retire (working as a lawyer that is). So I just want to start. Plus, going to U of T isn't the end of the hope for U.S. If you're really good, a lot of Canadians go to NY and are actually allowed to take the Bar Exam, unlike Canada's protectionist impediments. Haha, I guess I'm rationalizing opting for U of T now.

Not entirely true. But no point in going into details.

Number of people who actually get big law from U of T is very minimal. Also, you can only write the bar in New York, Massachusetts, and California (if you have previously been called to the bar in another state). Coming back to Canada from the US really isn't any more cumbersome than going the other way, in fact, on might argue its less cumbersome because once pass the NCA accreditation process in Canada you can practice law anywhere in Canada.
