  1. Once you're in, the international student coordinator will send you form you need to fill out. Then you receive a certificate of eligbility to get your I-20. Then you take that to get your student visa. Like BC said, there's nothing you need to do with regards to just applying.
  2. Cardoza. All the way. Isn't the Hofstra one renewable? If not Cardoza, then St. John's. Hofstra just dropped out of the rankings and there's no way that Cardoza/St. John's will. Congrats.
  3. Well, depends on your situation. If you have zero ECs, but a good GPA/LSAT, JD would be easier. But if you have a mediocre GPA/LSAT but awesome ECs and references, the LLB only would be easier.
  4. I applied on the OLSAS deadline date. I sent my supplemental form right after as well. All of documents were received Feb 21 (late references to OLSAS). I'm Canadian, so I have no idea if its faster for US residents (in my above post, I just meant that I'd likely be staying in the US after finishing school). Best of luck mtheta!
  5. IN!!!!! Well, it says "provisional acceptance"....not sure what that means. I'm calling and will update with info! UPDATE: Wow, she was MEAN!! I just asked her what "provisional acceptance" meant and she's like "Well, it's self-explanatory in the letter" but...I didn't get a letter yet, just the online status. ah! sorry! lol. Anyway, it just means that I need transcripts sent in to show that I got my degree by June 30. Not going though, too expensive and its just not for me cuz I'm likely going to stay in the US. Goin to McGeorge unless Loyola decides to take pity on me. That being said, originally, Windsor was my top choice and I've heard a lot of great things about the school. Good luck to the rest of you!!
  6. A lot of the stuff that I've seen is doing contract stuff (like AIFs and Info Circs). I don't think there's a lot of cocaine-esque/screwing over ppl cases, but maybe I just haven't gotten exposure to it. The more established firms will generally keep their distance I think from these types of cases.
  7. Totous, no idea buddy. call and ask. sorry! Roja, don't stress. I only got my forms because I paid the full deposit (they had the option to pay in two seperate ones, but I emailed the International coordinator and he said I would get forms after paying the full one, so I just got it out of the way). Best bet: just email them and ask.
  8. Before you can be issued a student visa, you need to be able to prove that you can pay for school. When you send this proof, and if you get admitted, they send you an I-20 certificate of eligibility and you bring this to get your student visa. To prove you finances, you usually need a bank statement and/or verification from a guarantor saying they guarantee your funds. If you can't prove it, you can't get the visa. Generally, you need to FOR SURE prove the first year rates (tuition plus living expenses) and then say that there is a reasonable assumption that the funds will be available for the next years. As for dependents, usually, they ask for this information on that form. You may only get all these forms after you get admission and right now they're just asking for an unofficial explanation? I would call and verify that there aren't specific forms you need to give them because I only got these forms after I accepted the offer. HTH.
  9. Yea, you don't have to pay the $12 just for the lsat score...that's free.
  10. Saw this on craigslist: http://calgary.craigslist.org/sub/135347521.html
  11. Thanks for the congrats!! No, US schools totally give the moola. It's just that Canadians aren't elligible for US loans. With your stats, I'm pretty sure you'd get some great scholarships. What states are you looking at? That might help me narrow it down for you...
  12. Sent in my deposit to Pacific McGeorge (Sacramento, Cali) this morning. I was offered 12K/year (renewable if in top third of my class) plus books plus first dibs on housing...too good to turn up! If I get off the waitlist at Loyola-Chicago, then I'll go there instead. But I'm not holding my breath. It was hard to turn up the Hofstra moola, but I think Cali will agree with me more than NY. (I also haven't heard from Case Western or Baylor, but I don't want to go there anymore...the apps were free, so I had nothing to lose). Good luck to everyone else! Thanks especially to the posters with US experience that have helped me out this past year!
