1L job search / Secured 1L summer job
« on: September 17, 2008, 12:28:57 AM »
Has anyone, from either UCLA, LMU, or USC been offered a 1L summer clerkship as a recruiting tool before 1L year even started? I've heard about it, and I am wondering the details.

Also, does anyone know where I can find avg. starting salaries for beginning associates at firms? That doesnt require subscription? Thanks!

Where should I go next fall? / UCLA $$$ v. Boalt $
« on: April 22, 2008, 03:26:07 PM »
UCLA around 100k

Boalt around 50k

Waitlisted at Yale, Stanford, Columbia

Waiting to hear from Harvard.

I am interested in Sports law. I like the flexibility I will have graduating with less debt, but Boalt is around 10 spots better than UCLA, plus I like their grading system better.

Plus, I'm WLd at YSC, and I assume I will get no money if I get into one of those. Any thoughts on what I should expect about those three waitlists? And if you had to choose now, what would you pick? Thanks

Where should I go next fall? / Phone Call w/Dean of Admissions
« on: April 08, 2008, 02:49:36 PM »
Advice on how to ask a Dean for more money? I have already been given about 3/4 tuition at a top 20 law school, but I would like to use my admittance at Boalt as leverage to get even more money. Any ideas??

Where should I go next fall? / UCLA v. BOALT
« on: February 20, 2008, 04:54:37 PM »
Hi I'm in at UCLA (around 80k for 3 years) and Boalt (no fin aid yet), waiting to hear back from Harv, Yale, Stanf, Columbia with a 169 and a 3.65 at UCLA.

I've met with UCLA and they seem to want me, convincing me UCLA's entertainment law is awesome. I don't doubt it, but if I get into a top school, with no money, versus UCLA with money, I don't know what I'll do. Any advice? Would someone go to Boalt with the above info right off the bat?

I assume it will be easier to find a job coming from a top school, but since UCLA is in LA where I want to practice entertainment law, I figure it is almost negligible, no? School me please!

Where should I go next fall? / Meeting with Dean of Admissions
« on: February 13, 2008, 04:01:05 PM »
Hi world tomorrow I am meeting with the Dean of Admissions at a top Cali school (I'll tell yall after tomorrow : ) ) I have only received admissions from 3 other schools, 1 being a full ride at Loyola Maramount, 1 a top UC law school, and Univ. Miami (gave me the 69,000). I am still waiting to here back from Yale, Harvard, Columbia.

Going in, I am kinda wondering how I should approach financial aid discussions and stuff like that. Any ideas?
