Sadly, they will not influence nearly as much as UG stuff. A good graduate degree and GPA will boost your app, but remember, when it comes down to it, they're looking at the numbers-and the undergrad numbers are what count.

I think for the first day you have to look reasonably good, but after that it seems that the standard uniform is jeans and a hoodie or sweater. My friend, a 2L at UMich, said that people actually wear pajamas to class.
I'm soo tempted to do this for the LSAT-just bike across campus, settle into Buchanan in my sailboat pajamas...

Sounds hot, and like a fancier version of everyday on campus here, where uggs and miniskirts rule the day.

I feel your pain. I can't help but feel that grades that I earned at the age of 15 should count far less...

Chaired Professor from Tier 1 law school, Ivy Ethical Philosophy Prof (not currently at my school), Ancient Philosophy Prof.
Hopefully the quality of the letters will make up for the fact that they're not über-l33t law stars.

I have one Professor of Philosophy and my instructor of Philosophy/law, for my two main ones, and an English Professor and Latin professor as my backups/additionals.

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.

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.
