USA v Canada


JDD
Any of you considering Canadian LLM too? McGill and Toronto seem to be very comparable, like top-10 American schools according to some recent rankings.

I only applied to American schools for the LLM (Yale, NYU, Columbia), but looking seriously at Canada for possible Phd (JSD or DCL). McGill has a great reputation and curriculum in international and comparative law. Toronto too seems to offer a great curriculum. Nice cities too, Montreal and Toronto.

I am thinking UT/McGill fit somewhere in the Columbia/UCBerkeley/UChicago range in terms of prestige-educational value and quality of life.

Thoughts?

Hi, I'm in the same boat. Hmm, sort of.
As a matter of fact, I have NEVER EVER heard of Canadian LL.M. before and was about to apply to U.S. programs only. Yet as soon as I incidentally came across some info on it - especially regarding their heavy research inclination - I changed my mind and the very last minute sent all my document to Vancouver and Montreal. Well, and to Penn as well, but I had some personal reasons to love Penn.
I'm also wondering why people are not really about Canada. Perhaps due to obscure prospects of landing a job or so... Anyway, since I take a keen interest in pursuing a scholar career, Canada meets all my expectations. On top of that, Canada is somewhat 5-10 times cheaper (50 some as compared to 7 some k/yr).
Btw, would you mind telling what country you are from?
