definitely visit, that's what sold me. call ahead and let them know so they can schedule a tour, a class for you to sit in on, etc. i found the admissions people to be great, great program, i was really impressed all around and didn't necessarily expect to be. PM me if you want, i'm happy to answer more questions.

Beeline do you know how much they focus on public interest law? Do you know anything about the tuition deal with the Province of Manitoba? How hard to I have to work to establish residency in Manitoba? If I work there next summer would that be enough? Any idea how cut-throat the school is? Does it have a reputation as Liberal or Conservative?

Those would be my questions for now, probably more later...

Would I have much of a chance at Minny with my numbers?  I have a 4.09 GPA in Economics and a 159 LSAT.  The LSAC calculator puts my chances at over 70%.

I would say you probably have over a 70% chance.

I would say you need some serious soft factors in order to get by with a 159, even with your gpa.

Boyhoosier,

You should really take advantage of that incredible GPA and take the LSAT again, aiming for a score around 10 points higher.  That way your score would average out to around 164/165, for those schools who average, and would top out at around 169 for those schools who take the highest score.  You have an shot at t-14 schools with a higher lsat score (it would also help with your chances at Minnesota if that is where you would really like to go).
