General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: HLS Class of 2010
« on: May 05, 2007, 10:13:14 PM »
Is anyone else having trouble getting onto the website mentioned in the dorm lottery e-mail for where to go for more info? Also, I have no idea where I want to live. My number's 92, so I assume that means I'll have some degree of choice about my room. I didn't see the housing when I was in Boston, so what are people's opinions of the different options? Gropius is a lot cheaper, are Hastings and North really worth the price jump? I do like the idea of my own bathroom (in North)...

The website is probably this:

Oh Canada! / Re: Lower LSAT scores in Canadian Law schools
« on: April 13, 2007, 04:57:59 PM »
This boggled my mind for a while...

UT law school, one of the toughest to get in to in Canada, says they have an average LSAT score of 166 for the admitted students, which is like similarly equivalent to US schools ranking in mid 20's.

Why do you think this is?  ???
1. Knowing that Canadian law schools don't put too  much weight on the LSAT as much as GPAs, do applicants just don't bother as much in getting a +170 score,
or,
2. the applicants in Canada just can't keep up with the high scores that the US counterparts achieve?

Any ideas?

Or 3, U of T Law is "equivalent to US schools ranking in mid 20's"

It is probably a little better than that but not that much better.

Thanks guys. The binder came today. It was mailed after the CD's. Now I guess I'm only waiting for xlarge shirt.

Sorry I double-posted this in the Harvard phone call thread. No one read this thread at first.

Thanks, guys. I guess I really need to have the binder to convince myself that I'm in. :D

Could anyone tell me about how long after the acceptance call the acceptance package should arrive? It's been a couple of weeks for me and I have only received a package containing 2 cd's and an info booklet.

Thanks.

Well, I checked out Osgoode on Tuesday.

Never having been to Toronto before (lifelong Calgarian), I was a little bit overwhelmed.  Some gangbanger, for example, just about rear ended me the first time I merged onto the 401.  He was not pleased. 
And the school's in a real rundown looking area...

So, this changes things up a bit.
I might still go there, but Queens, Ottawa, Alberta, and Calgary (yeah) look a little better right now.

No doubt that York is in a bad area of Toronto. Too bad for Osgoode.

Oh Canada! / Re: FAFSA for Canadians
« on: February 07, 2007, 10:03:33 PM »
Unless you're eligible for FAFSA, I dont think you can get any federal (US) aid. Schools seeminly have limited aid for international students. Private loans seem almost like the only way to go. Doesn't necessarily mean that private bank is the only way to go, but yes you are going to have to borrow from somewhere outside the school.

Sure. The top schools have substantial aid for international students, however; some of them do not discriminate.

Law School Applications / Re: Questions about the Hamilton @ CLS
« on: January 30, 2007, 01:59:26 AM »
Are their conditions on Hamiltons? e.g. GPAs that must be maintained, etc. Also, does anyone know approximately who many fellows usually end up attending CLS?

Depends on where you want to practice. For the 4 you've got, I would pick Alberta for staying in the west and Osgoode for Ontario.

Calgary and Ottawa are also nice schools.
