Regarding this situation. I think if you want to apply to 50 f-ing schools and can afford to do so, go right ahead. If you honestly believe in your heart that you'd take one of any of those 50 schools, then by all means apply. (It's bull to think that, but if really believe that any one of 50 schools would be a good fit, apply.)
However, the OP irks me cause she knew she wanted to practice in CA, and will probably end up doing so. So why apply to *&^% schools out of state? But anyways, that's my take on the situation.
Now, for the OP's original question, considering you'd actually do an EXCEL spreadsheet breakdown on costs makes it seems as though you are really anal about how much law schools is going to cost you. Looks like USD would be a nice, cheap, SOCAL option, so I'd go with them. IF you aren't THAT anal about Socal, I'd take the money at UIUC.

I don't know about applications in general (i know they have been steadily increasing)
But of U of A, I am sure there are some independent factors at work.
1. Tucson and Phoenix are the fastest growing cities in the country (among them). More people in Arizona that want to go to law school (it is a state school) and more people wouldn't mind practicing in Arizona.
2. Phoenix/ Tucson is seen as an extension of CA almost. A lot of people apply to the Arizonas that might want to go to Cali schools but might not get in to say, Hastings or Davis.

My file for USD was complete in early Jan, and still no answer. Does that mean I'm either rejected or waitlisted?
not necessarily. they'll probably wait till first round of deposits come in april 1st, and make decisions

Arizona or Alabama

SoCal consists primarily of LA and San Diego
San Diego, cause it might be the nicest place to live in the country, has a lot of lateral attorneys coming in. It's also not very large of a legal market. I would think T-14, then UCLA USC, then USD would do better in that market.
In LA, I think UCLA, USC, T-14, Loyola would all do slightly better.
If SoCal is your goal, Loyola or USD might be a tad better. However, outside of Socal, which is like 95 percent of the country, UC Davis would be better.

I am Asian. Do you think either of those locales are more hospitable to minorities? I know the old boy network is entrenched in the South pretty good.
and is it THAT cold i Minnesota?

41 percent is quite low, most schools are in the 60s. That clerkship thing makes sense, but then I wonder if those people want to do clerkships, or just do them cause they can't find decent jobs

Anybody know why so few of their grads go to private practice and so many do gov't work? Is placement pretty weak coming out of U of A?

Ok, here's the runoff, I already withdrew from UIUC.
13k a year at U Minn, no dough at UNC, probably won't qualify for residency at either school (it's tough)
Maybe 25k total cheaper for U Minn, cause UNC's tuition is cheaper, and COL a bit cheaper too.
So, which one would you recommend?

I'd have to agree, USD's location and campus is so much better than Loyola.
Having said that, I Am leaning more towards Loyola. It's like dating an ugly girl who has a good heart.
LMAO, that's a perfect analogy!
cause that's my life.
