"You only need 10 minutes to see the school. Some instructors may allow you to sit in on a lecture. However, for security reasons, we ask that you not wander throughout the school without student/faculty escort."

HAHA, just what I've been looking for.  A law school where I fear walking alone down the halls.

Oh, to be you.  Major congrats!

You're the it girl right now.  You must have somebody at Harvard to call.  A dean perhaps.  Let them know what you got and ask if they can match it.  It never hurts to ask.  I would just hate to have you -- finds it hard to type the words -- reject Harvard, tell them why, and have them tell you they would have been willing to offer the same to you.

Oooo Ooooo! Really?  I'll keep my little Cougar paws crossed :D

LOL... I can't think of a more torturous way to prep for the LSAT... in a "silent" apartment filled with "intellectual intensity" in one of the most exciting cities in the world.  But with a graveyard dance party planned I might reconsider.

I threw in the towel at "We may even bring some wine into the catacombs and hold an LSAT soiree, amidst millions of human bones stacked on top of one another.  If closed at nighttime, we can go to Jim Morrison's grave in the afternoon to relax amongst graves..."

If they're anything like the UGrad admin.  they'll snag the cream of the crop with a lightning fast response.  Then a LONG wait for the rest.  From my conversations with the admin. dean they start to look mid-december.  But remember... they have a LATE cut off for apps. so depending how good you are you may be in limbo for some time.

You're right it was in the passage... first paragraph... regarding the explicit rights covered in the constitution.  Land right, self governance, and rights to ritual (was there a fourth)

wasnt the answer to the question about what is explicity mentioned in the amendment something about naming which tribes it protects?  this was definitely IN the amendment (the specific names of several tribes were given), and it was definitely an answer choice.

Inuit, Meti, and ______

Wasn't there a question about what they suggest to do to fix it? I remember one of the options talking about higher courts deciding or something. I don't remember, grrrr.

Yes… the Ottawa (or Ontario) court interpreted land rights in this instance more conservatively than in other modern instances.   The author felt that the Supreme Court would better address the issue.

This is what happened in real life… didn’t the header sentence say that this article was published in the late 80’s.  I think TIME Magazine was cited in the back of the test booklet…. anybody want to look it up?

PS -  The only issue with Oral tradition is that the O court excluded any traditions made after English colonization of the territory making it impossible for the aboriginals to prove to the O court that the tradition should be protected under the constitution.  The author felt that this requirement was unreasonable and would not be upheld by the Supreme Court.  It was not that he wanted oral tradition in it was that he didn’t like the pre/post colonization requirement.

ok someone give me a quick synopsis of the meteor/ice age question please?
something about how teh extinction won't lead to ice age? i completely forgot the question, so i want to know whta the answer choices there were out there..

I think the questions dealt with the correlation between major meteor events/disasters and ice ages.  Major meteor events/disasters have been tied to the onset of ice ages.  However, some ice ages have started without there being a major meteor event/disaster immediately preceding.  Also, some major meteor events/disasters have occurred without ice ages immediately following.
