I love Vancouver. I wouldn't imagine it would be that easy. But you're law degree is what will get you in....under the NAFTA TN visa scheme.....

Here's a wiki on it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Canadian_provinces_and_territories_by_gross_domestic_product

Though I would argue that is out of date, since there was a lot of economic activity in 2007 and 2008. Namely, Ontario's large loss of manufacturing jobs and continued growth in Alberta and Saskatchewan.  Either way, GDP per capita isn't a very good indicator, as cost of living varies greatly from province to province. ie. in Calgary, you will have sky-high housing prices (I would say for an average home, in an average middle class area you are looking at 500k+) but you have no PST (provincial sales tax) and more likely, a higher wage (even working typical "minimum wage" jobs such as fast food). In Regina, you could buy that same home (until this past year) for about 150k, but you would have PST and a higher income tax. But you would also have cheaper auto insurance and health care which covered more things. But you wouldn't be living in a big city.

Either way, I prefer western Canada and it's going our economy is going to continue to grow, regardless of oil and mining.

I was actually talking about Saskatchewan's economy compared to other Canadian provinces. Either way, I'm not sure why you are arguing this, since of course the American GDP is going to be higher. You have 10 times our population. So is your debt, at over ten trillion dollars while we have around 600 billion.

Well people may joke, but we're having the last laugh when our economy is growing while their's continues to flounder. :P

Here's my best advice. don't go to anyone in Saskatchewan. Either do an online or weekend course supplemented (of course) with self study. If you have friends/family in Calgary, go there to do a PS or TM weekend course (I think they offer them there?) or if you don't, and you really want in person tutoring, drive to Minneapolis. Other than that, I would suggest an online course and/or ordering all the materials from powerscore (including their books, and all the LSAC test materials. This was the cheapest way to get them since Chapters has a crap selection and you pay one flat shipping fee to get a load of material). If you have any more questions - PM me!

Law School Applications / Re: How do you address admissions in email?

I say "hello". I completely understand those who prefer to be more formal with the "To Whom It May Concern" but, it feels awkward for me personally, so I always put "hello" unless I am addressing someone specifically, in which case I will put "Dear ______" and I always sign off formally

ah ace - you said everything I wanted to say regarding this issue. Cheers for being more eloquent and saving me typing something out for ten minutes and then hitting the 'back' button because I couldn't be bothered to post it.  ;)

that whole system seems so complex. Seriously. They don't have the answer sheet lying around somewhere. So he had someone steal it in another time zone, try and figure out the answers and page him during the exam? Doesn't really make sense... ???
