Law School Admissions / Fee Waivers from old LSAT
« on: July 24, 2007, 07:42:18 PM »
I'm graduating next spring. I took the LSAT in October of 2005 (I'm Canadian, and you can get into Canadian schools after just two years of undergrad).  That fall and winter, I received a number of fee waivers from American schools, but as I wasn't graduating until 2008, they were of no help. Now that I will be applying to these schools, those waivers would come in handy.  I've updated my info for the CRS, and put my expected date of law school entrance as 2008.  Is that enough? Is there something else I have to do, to get these waivers again?
UPDATE, 7 Aug/07: For anyone with the same problem: Yes, that was apparently enough. Just got the Duke Priority Track email.

Canadian Law Students / 3-year degree?
« on: December 20, 2005, 09:33:47 AM »
I asked this on the general applications board, no one seemed to know, perhaps my fellow Canucks will do better:

Do US schools accept 3-year "general" bachelor's degree from a Canadian university as equivalent to an American bachelor's degree?  I emailed every school in the T-14, asking if they accepted Canadian "general" degrees.  Many emailed me back, with all saying that they accept the equivalent of American bachelor's degrees.  Anyone have any experience with this?

Update: UMich and Harvard both replied to say unequivocally that they would accept the 3-year "general" degree.  I'm hoping this means that the other schools will treat the degree similarily.

Law School Admissions / Canadian 3-year Degree?

I'm currently in my second year of undergrad at a Canadian university.  I was planning to go to a Canadian law school next year - but after getting my LSAT score, I decided I'd head south. Waiting kinda sucks though.  Anyone know if T-14 schools will accept you with a three-year "general" B.A. from a Canadian school?  If so, will it hurt me in terms of acceptance/scholarships?
