Oh Canada! / Re: Canadian citizens practicing in the US
« on: July 25, 2005, 10:59:40 AM »
AB3, since you're Canadian, you don't need to go to a US Consulate to get your student visa. All you have to do is show your I-20, passport and financial statements to US immigration and they'll give you your I-94 for 6 bucks.

I drove into the States, so I got my I-94 at the Niagra Falls border crossing. Since you're flying, I'm not sure whether you'll have to visit US Immigration at the LAST Canadian airport you visit before crossing into the States or the FIRST American airport you visit after leaving Canada. Since 9/11, people flying into the States have had to go through US customs at the last foreign airport they visit prior to US entry. For example, I flew from Toronto to Seattle with a connecting flight in Vancouver. I had to go through US Customs in Vancouver. I'm not sure if the officers that do customs also do immigration.

I wouldn't worry too much. Getting a US student visa is dead easy for a Canadian. Just ask the US Customs Officer at Pearson what to do.

A friend sent me this article. Strictly speaking, its not about YLS, but I benefited from reading it none the less. Perhaps you might, as well.

P.S. This is NOT a Stanford-bashing post. I don't want to restart the inter-thread rivalry!

yeah, my guess is that the people most likely to take Craig up on the offer are current college seniors who don't really have a clear reason not to go (previous to this email, the yale literature seemed pretty demanding w/r/t explaining why you want to take even one year off) but are simply unsure whether they're ready to jump right into law school.

I was thinking just the opposite. If I had a OK job, it would be easy for me to keep doing whatever it is I'm doing for one more year. But as a senior I don't have the option of deferring because I don't have a job lined up. It would be much harder, I think, for a college grad to fill up their extra time.

I got the e-mail. Not good news, for us and especially for the waitlisted people.

Do you think that many people will take them up on their offer to defer? I doubt it. This late in the game, people must have their plans for next year set in stone. Looks like we're in for an extra large YLS.   :-\

^ :) Welcome to the board.  I like jokes.

Just found out I got the apt. at the Traymore and having deposit sent today! Yay! ;D It's huge, too - the living room is like 18x11; there's a real bathtub, hardwood floors, everything I wanted.  The parking across the street is $45/month too.  All you LSDers must come over sometime :)

Oh good, now I can uncross my fingers.

Pookie, what happens if you sign a lease and then end up "winning" a dorm room in the lottery. Do you have to forfeit the deposit?

Anyone know what the deal is with the housing lottery? Have dorm rooms been assigned? I entered the lottery but haven't heard anything from them -- at least not by e-mail.

I got my housing assignment in the mail today.  Gropius, here I come!

Me too -- number 8 on the waitlist.

Serves me right for signing up for the lottery without being set on Harvard. At least I'm not taking a room away from a "deserving" student.

Sonya - the office said that they are sending out assignments early next week.

Thanks for the info.

But aren't you going to Stanford? Are you sure you're in the right thread?! Harvard doesn't assign dorm rooms to Stanford students!

Just joshing.
