Morningstar, I know that some Ontario lawyers are able to practise in some States such as NY. How does it work for lawyers from the U.S. Which States allow lawyers to practice in the Great White North?

Thanks Gilles. Though I think you should have a look at the numbers at lawschoolnumbers.com --- I know two engineer majors who've gotten in w/ numbers less than that (Harvard).One of them being from Canada (Waterloo).A school that isn't even that recognizable internationally.

W/ a fair balance in GPA & LSAT score, it is quite achievable.

Definetly. Hopefully, I can also attend a few of those seminars to boost my confidence. I'm assuming the LSAT is out of 180? How is 95% a bad score? I'm pretty sure you can push your luck with a 171, good GPA, excellent personal statement and outstanding EC's.

How are your LSAT scores and how did you find the test?

MorningStar, I have a 3.8 GPA from UG. I haven't completed the LSAT yet, but I feel as if I study and go in w/ a straight mind, I could be successful on the LSAT. However, I need to spend some time working on my EC's etc...

No I haven't. I've actually took some time off to earn money to help finance law school. However, I am planning and somewhat confident. If I do not get accepted into these schools, it will not deter me. One can be just as successful attending another school. Well, can you guys provide some valuable opinions? I need to plan ahead...

Is there any point in attending Harvard or Yale if you're a Canadian student? My plan is to pratice in NY for a while then return to Canada. Is this a bad idea? I'm worried that I would have to start from the bottom. There is no question that Canadian firms would love the fact that I attended such prestigious institutions. There are also alot of firms in the U.S. with sister firms on Bay St. Therefore, it shouldn't be much of a big deal. Right?
