Law School Applications / Re: Is Chapman clueless?
« on: November 16, 2005, 03:13:23 PM »
Chapman depresses me. My mom and dad not too seriously suggested I go there, and I laughed in their faces. It's kind of their alma mater, and how they met, though...

Good liberal arts college-could be a good law school. But not yet.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: hot girls at T14

i went to ucla for undergrad and i have to disagree with you all... i thought the chicks there were pretty bad (the campus in general, not just the law school). of course you have a few here and there, but overall i was pretty bored... at least compared to the quality of chicks at my high school in orange county, i'd have to say they sucked, actually. If you want cute chicks, better to try usc or loyola... I've heard good things about pepperdine too.

Well, UCLA undergrad is no UCSB, but I heard comparatively UCLA law is good for hot people. Then again, my friend who goes there has a bit of a skewed perspective...

Shouldn't Loyola Law be up there?

Loyola is pretty respectable in LA, but their campus is separate from their undergrad, and there are so many other, better schools in the area.

Anecdotal evidence, but my old girlfriend's dad recently made partner in a mid-size firm after a career change and attending Loyola.

good call.  you being white wouldn't really add diversity to the school. 

Hmm I just noticed we have pretty similar numbers-I'll be watching your apps closely. Mind PMing me a few details about your ECs, undergrad, major, etc? I'll reciprocate.

Even if "all" you get is room & board, that's a job. Our stipend is only $65/month; no one's making a fortune being an RA. :)

But I think it ranks highly as a fairly prestigious job that requires a lot of commitment here, at least. We have to put on a good number of fairly major events, and patrol and respond to situations.

I'm Central Coast, and would have reasons to be at the Bay Area Forum and the LA one. I guess I'll go to both next year. Are they free? What's the dress like? I was thinking business casual, maybe sans a tie and go open collar. Looks dressy but not stuffy, IMO.

I can't honestly say any of those schools are bad. But for someone with your stats, I would think you would be looking exclusively at the T14. Yale you can never know, but Harvard admits most people like you.

Hope this stays the same for Dec-I can't lose my foundation!

How could anyone not put RAing as job, unless it's drastically different (volunteer?) elsewhere? We're all employees of the state, since we're a state school, and we get renumeration and a stipend. That's definitely a job, and the weekly hours were conservatively estimated at 20.
