Transferring / Re: For all those receiving good news...
« on: August 01, 2007, 01:03:53 PM »
I went to Univ. of San Diego with a 166 and a 2.54 ugpa

I ended up being top 18% of my class. 3.54gpa

I got rejected at Boalt
I have not heard back from USC
I was accepted at UC Hastings
I am attending UC Davis

One note: I HATED my university before I attended. I love San Diego. I love how smart my classmates and my professors were. I hated the incompetent administration and the high tuition - and I knew about these things before I went. The fact that I didn't like where I was from day 1 motivated me to do well so I could transfer.

What I did:
Drank beers as often as possible.
Spent a lot of time with friends and family.
Never fell more than 300 pages behind in the reading.
Never missed more than 5 consecutive class meetings.
Volunteered to speak when I was prepared in hopes that I wouldn't get called on when I was unprepared.
Never brought a laptop to class - no distraction from = more retained from lecture.
Re-read everything a few days before the exam and hand wrote my outlines and exams.
Sat behind gals who were stacked and liked to share it with the class. (Incentive to attend classes)

San Diego / 2Bd / 1Ba Across From USD - $1250

Thought I would throw this on the board b/c I remember having trouble lining up a place last year.

It's a 2 bed / 1 Bath literally across the street from campus. The apartment is directly across from stairs that lead straight to the bookstore, Warren Hall, and Doug (the guy with the coffee cart). It was a huge convenience for me to be able to: a) roll out of bed and be on campus in 4 minutes, and b) go home to take a nap between classes.

The complex is extremely quiet, there is private off-street parking, and the rent is only $1250/mo. I am transferring to a Bay Area law school, otherwise I would keep living here until a few years after graduation.

Here is the Craigslist Ad...
