Hello LS Discussion Folks,

So I am a SoCal resident with a slight preference for staying local (I am a big family person), but I am open to relocating.  That said, I have a couple of solid options on my plate that have upcoming seat deposits due.  My four top choices are Temple, Rutgers-Newark, USF, and Pacific-McGeorge.  I am big on going to a school with top notch trial advocacy and legal writing, and would be a open to a move to Philly (Temple).  Pacific-McGeorge is appealing because they offering me scholarship money which is hard to pass on.  Lastly, USF and Rutgers-Newark are in the mix because I have several family members in both San Francisco and New Jersey. 

Given my situation what do you guys think is my top prospect?

Temple if your down for the move, USF if not.  The others should not be considered.

Transferring / Re: Advice Needed ASAP

Uhhhhhh you should probably hold off on this post and contemplating transferring until your Civ Pro and K grades come back-- 6 and 5 units classes can make a HUGE difference in your gpa....

You sound really arrogant by the way.  UCLA is very transfer friendly, but come on--you need to chilax.

For Mac users (FYI) there is no OneNote, BUT if you have the new intel macs and the new word, when you open the program and see the project galleries there is a "Word Notebook" layout.  I HIGHLY recommend this. No only does it allow you to take nots easier it records the lecture (granted you'll need to sit in the first 3 rows) AND sync the recording to the place you were typing.  So you can click in the margin next to your notes and hear the audio from that point.  Pretty nice and very usefull around exams when you don't want to sift thru a bunch of audio to get to your prof's explination of one area of law

Transferring / Re: Where Should I Transfer - Harvard/Stanford?

At risk of alienating everyone, I still would like some advice: Should I transfer to Harvard or Stanford?

Wow, congrats, I didn't know that Stanford even took transfers ( in theory they do but you know...).  Can we know where your transfering from/grades or % ranking?

I would prefer Stanford because of the small size of the classes/school and the weather.  I think it all depends on what you want to do and what your personal preferences are.  In terms of reputation I don't think there's much of a dif besides the fact that Harvard may have more name recognition.
