Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / US News Premium Password

Does anyone have a password for the US New Rankings? I don't need a link to the law schools, I'm starting to think LS was a bad idea and need access to Grad school rankings as well. Unfortunately I'm in bucktoothnowhere for the summer so it's internet or nothing. Anyone have a pass or a link to last years rankings for grad schools and med schools?

You can email me at

Thanks a lot.

Canadian Law Students / Summer Job on Oil Rig?
« on: April 10, 2005, 06:13:06 PM »
Anyone know anything about working on an oil rig in Alberta over the summer? I saw some discussion about it on a board somewhere, and I'm interested. I need to make huge money this summer, I don't care about hard work, and this seems like a possibility. Anyone know where I might find more information or anyone have info themselves?

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT Good Predictor of Law School Success?
« on: March 23, 2005, 08:15:34 PM »
I've frequently seen people cite studies saying that the LSAT is a good indication of success at law school. While I don't doubt this at all, I'm just wondering if anyone has a link to an article about it? Really need one, if anyone can help please give me a link.

Canadian Law Students / Osgoode Joint Program with NYU!
« on: January 26, 2005, 10:29:41 AM »
In case nobody else noticed, Osgoode Hall's Dean announced yesterday that the school had reached an understanding with NYU for a joint JD/LLB program. Ambassador to the US Paul Celluci was there as well as several other dignitaries.

Wow. Ottawa and Windsor already have joint programs, but those are with American/MSU and Detroit Mercy respectively. Not exactly the best schools in the States (American is tier 2, others are TTT), NYU is ranked 5th in the newest US News Rankings. This is a huge coup for Osgoode.

Canadian Law Students / Questions about Actual Practice of Law in Canada
« on: December 07, 2004, 02:54:42 PM »
What is the highest paying type of law in Canada? What others are close to the top?

What are the big law firms in Canada? Where are they located? What law schools do they primarily recruit from?

Guess that's it for now, I only decided on law school in late September so I really don't know squat about law in Canada. Thanks to anyone with the info I want.

Studying for the LSAT / Results Come When?
« on: December 04, 2004, 11:35:57 PM »
They said on the 4th at the testing center, but will it end up being the friday beforehand -- also known as New Year's Eve?

Did they come early last December or does the hlidy get in the way? God, just have to make it till the 22nd when I go out of town for the holidays, until then I'm going to be on edge constantly...

Studying for the LSAT / How Much Would You Pay For Your Results Right Now?
« on: December 04, 2004, 11:16:37 PM »
I'd pay at least $1000, right now this stands to ruin my holidays. That sucks an awful lot, really want my damn score right now.

Studying for the LSAT / Scaled Score to Percentile?
« on: December 04, 2004, 10:44:26 PM »
How exactly does your scaled score relate to your percentile? Some Canadian schools seem to look at the percentile, and I don't know how to convert it. I know a 161 is the 85th, but can someone give me the full conversion?

Studying for the LSAT / Predict the Scale
« on: December 04, 2004, 09:26:13 PM »
Any guesses?

I'm thinking slightly easier than October, something along the lines of 170=89, 167=85/86, 165=83

Simply because I figure that most December writers are re-takers who weren't happy with their score the first time. Most such people did score high and aren't likely to score really high this time.

Anyone else have thoughts?

Studying for the LSAT / Predict Your Score
« on: December 04, 2004, 06:14:09 PM »
Ok, the time has come, we've been pouring over the answers for hours now. Time to gues what you got. Give your guess for raw score and what you think that will work out to with the scale.

I'm guessing 85 (6LR, 2 AR, 7RC) to 166. Still holding out hope for better, but realizing I missed an AR question has my confidence down a lot.

Just realized ten minutes ago I missed at least one AR  question misinterpreting a rule. Hoping for a more generous scale though. Still, 166 is at the extreme low end of my practice tests. The effect of 100 questions on the scale is up in the air. October only had 100 questions and it was the worst scale in ages, so who knows.
