What are the norms, as far as words, length, etc., for these two?

Jacy,

Do you think I should address this in the personal statement or send in an additional letter explaining I grew up, saw the country, etc.?  Thank you so much!

Law School Admissions / GPA ?
« on: August 18, 2004, 07:23:54 AM »
I am only applying to a second tier school, however my grades were BAD (like a 1.0) for my first two years, and then I took some time off of school, came back and got a 3.8 for my second two years.  I graduated four and a half years ago and have been working full time since graduation.  Do you think that those first two years at school are going to screw me up, assuming I do decent/average on the LSAT?
Thanks for any help.

Thank you for responding Cheeks. 

I guess my main concerns are financial.  I know that at least in the US I can get financial aid, loans, work study, etc.  However in Canada I would not be a citizen, so I am assuming that financial aid is out. We just had a child and I would need to make sure we would have enough money to pay for school and eat.

Is it difficult to become a citizen, if we wanted to stay after school?  What is the job market like in Canada for new lawyers?  We do not have any specific region/provinces in mind.

Any help would be great.  Thank you.

My wife wants to move to Canada (from the US).  I am in the process of looking at law schools and now I need to know everything about Canadian law schools.  I am curious about costs, admissions, etc. 
Does anyone know of a good web site or two that I could use to start researching this? 

Thank you for any help.
