Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Where to live in DC
« on: February 09, 2006, 10:19:32 AM »
So, is there anywhere in Virginia, close to D.C., that has great schools, low crime and a buzzing nightlife for we younger, childless types that will have kids in the future?  It would be nice to have nightlife and good schools in the same area.

This trifecta would be even better if on a Metro line.

Thoughts, anyone?

While this Greedy Associates reply deals with Canadian called lawyers requalifying in Australia, I would imagine that many American qualifed lawyers would have to jump through these same hoops:

Also, look at this reply on a different thread:

And this one:

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: University of Denver

Denver is fun.  I spent a few days there last February and was surprised by just how nice a city it is.  Generally nice people, too.

Sorry, but I don't know anything about the University of Denver.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Northwestern Wait list

Now that it has been shortened to the summer wait list...wondering how many folks are planning on holding on until the end (after orientation), who has been accepted recently, and who has withdrawn for more stable pastures.

I am willing to go the distance, I think.

Best of luck,


Recently, I was told that I made the shortened summer waitlist at Northwestern.  How many of you that were once on this list have actually been admitted for this autumn?  I'm just trying to get a feel for what's going in at Northwestern....

Kind regards,

Celarkobri and B,

Thanks for your replies!  As waitlists are starting to move "higher up the food chain," I remain hopeful that there will be more students admitted from those of us still languishing on the waitlist.

Kind regards,

Sorry, I don't know.

Thanks, anyway!  Your reply is as prompt as it is courteous!

You must still be on cloud nine!

Starresky & B,

Was there a deposit deadline for the regular admits?  If so, do you know when it passed or when it will be passed?

Just curious,

I promise that this will be the last time I do this, folks!

Bump, bump, bump!

Quote from: Maclock
The faculties of law at McGill University and the University of Toronto are the only Canadian law schools that are somewhat well-known in the United States, but even then, these law schools are only really well-known in MA, NY and possibly CA

I don't think these two are really well-known in California.

Among the egg-head set, McGill is usually well-known.  A friend who just finished her degree at Stanford (undergrad, admittedly) had a few professors from McGill teach her over the years.  (Presumably, they were visiting profs.)

McGill, despite years of underfunding, still has a big name in the States, particularly in the North-east.  Some of that lustre carries over to California, too, apparently.

You may well be right in respect of the University of Toronto, though.

All the best,
