Choosing the Right Law School / Re: SoCal Tier 3-4 LAte Decisons
« on: June 15, 2005, 10:39:38 AM »
Thanks fr the info, I am planning on going there in early July and ssein as how my cosuin in law lives about a block from Chapman it will be easy to learn about the area more intricately as well. I will probably visit all 3 in the time Im there but Im leaning more towards Chapman as of now because of its suburban atmosphere and close proximity to LA as Im more comftable in that setting. And my plan as of now would be to stay wherever I go for a career if possible so that shouldnt be a problem. We shall see soon.

Choosing the Right Law School / SoCal Tier 3-4 LAte Decisons

SO I got rejected from USD and accepted to Cal Western and Chapmen as of now and Im still waitlisted at Pepperdine and bein as how from the timing og this post I have been lazy and unmotivated to do anything, my grades werent good enough to warrant scholarship money from any of them. I live in New Jersey and have never seen California let alone live there but am determined to. Does anyone have any suggestions or comments on the 3 schools or if i should choose between the 2 I am accepted to or wait longer for Pepperdine or what. I figure I have until the middle of July to decide as Ive paid the down payments for Cal Western and doing so for Chapman wont be a problem even if i dont go. Thanks

this kinda sucks seeing as the 3/1 app deadlines are looming in less than 24 hours, although i suppose it is us slacking procrstinators who are to be blamed for our current situation. o what i woudlnt give for being a go getter right about now

im having the same conundrum. on the cal western app, it says attach a personal statement and the next number says to attach an optional diversity statement about what makes me different or standout for a law school applicant. I thought the personal statement was to explain what made you different and diverse from other applicants. So I dont know, any answers

Im a senior philosophy major from a rather small school but one that has an excellent philosophy program. I think philosophy is a great way to prepare for law school as far as I can tell. Many of the classes involve writing more than a few essays, which is something law school relies on tremendously. Also the amount of critical thought and extrapolating ideas and theories from the various philosophers is a skill used during law school Im sure. It is definetly harder than something like sociology or criminal justice, which is more straight fact memorizing, but I feel the lower GPA one might get by going through the philosophy cirriculum would greatly enhance the skills one needs to cultivate throughout law school.

that actually sounds good for an application essay answer or somethin

thanx tousled

i live in nj and have never been west of pittsburgh so it would be  a new experience to say the least. i could imagine the good times i would have there but how do you or people youve talked to from there think of chapman or pepperdine in terms of the stature and if i would be able to have a good chance at getting a job coming out of either school. to me, i would think a law degree is a law degree unless your tryin to go to some snobby elitist place of business but maybe im thinkin like an idealist or somethin.

also maybe you could tell me a lil about the area cuz alls i base my knowledge on is from the oc and laguna beach. ;)

naw its good to hear other people are going through the same things as me, ecxcept with the whole having a direction and background in different things and knowing exactly what your looking for parts. im looking at chapman more now too because it is in the OC and is a smaller liberal arts school like my undergrad one, which i love. its a tier 3 school but its less than 10 years old and is in SoCal in between LA n SD so its prime location wise. I just dont want to end up settling for less then i set my mind on doing, which was San Diego. But who knows, i had my heart set on an undergrad college and it was the only one out of 7 that i applied to that i got rejected from, and that forced me to come to this school which i never even had on my radar before my rejection and in retrospect it was a great blessing in disguise as this is a much more compatible place for me. Talk about rambling, and im just bored tryin not to think of my fresh LSAT results and therefore wanting to cry. But i digress

educationally it does but not spiritually
