University of Toronto versus other Canadian Schools LLM (2020-2021)


IndiraS
Hi! I'm a 5th year law student pursuing my BA LLB (Hons.) from IP University. My grades are good, and I have done several internships, with big law firms which is not uncommon. Also an active part of my Moot Court Society since my second year.

I haven't started applying yet, but I was considering LLM for the year 2020-2021. Active interest in Business laws/competition law, so the UofT business laws program appeals to me. What I do want to know however is,

1. How hard is it to get into UofT?
2. In comparison, how good are Osgoode and UBC?
3. What are the key points I need to keep in mind to have a higher chance of acceptance?

I know I sound like a complete rookie, so any and all help will be appreciated :)

UofT would be a good choice to study business law. Osgoode is worth considering as well, given that it's also located in Toronto, the business capital of the country. UBC would probably be less interesting to you, given the (comparative) lack of business law curriculum.

The grades and internships will look good. It's a competitive school, though, and they'll also consider your TOEFL / IELTS scores, as well, plus your letters of recommendation. So, generically speaking, focus on your test prep and try to squeeze the best letters out of your recommenders.
