What are some helpful considerations when deciding whether or not to apply to Canadian law schools?
U.S. citizen here thinking of applying to Mcgill and UT in addition to many American schools. Is the process largely the same?

Hi menkenj,

The key differences between Canadian and American law schools are that Canadian schools rarely offer scholarships. GPA is a lot more important, and multiple LSAT takes are discouraged, so aim for no more than 2 takes. It's also a good idea to aim for schools where you want to practice geographically.

Hope that helps,

As a Canadian citizen who completed her undergrad degree in the US, I can't help but feel like I'm at a disadvantage when applying to Canadian law schools. For example, in McGill Admissions, I know my file is not reviewed with the other "Quebec applicants/residents" but rather is reviewed with the pile of "Other/US Institutions" applicants, which are undoubtedly more competitive as there are less spots available for this group of applicants. Do you think it's worth it for me to inquire about the possibility for my application to be reviewed among the other Quebec applicants, or is this just how it goes? Thanks.
