California Western / Who's attending Spring '09
« on: October 09, 2008, 01:03:37 PM »
Hey everyone,

I got into Cal Western for the Spring class and was just wondering who else will be attending? How are you going to be going about getting a place to stay? Are you moving or a native of S.D.? I live in L.A. but my girlfriend use to live in S.D. and when I drove down the first time i decided then that I had to live, work and spend the rest of my life here.

I was a little suprised, i got my acceptance letter (in a small envelope) 4 days after getting my letter stating that i went complete.

I would just like to at least know of one other before I get there for orientation?

Corvette Diner kicks effin a**.

Amy's frozen cheese Enchiladas. They weren't frozen when I ate them. I would say better than some restaurant enchiladas.

Where should I go next fall? / San Diego
« on: August 25, 2008, 08:06:17 PM »
I really want to go to school in San Diego because, well, it's freakin' San Diego. I live in L.A. and I went there to visit my girlfriend and have been in love with the city. I know that the only schools in San Diego are USD, Cal Western and Thomas Jefferson. I was going to apply to Cal Western adn USD, I know that neither one is a tier one school. However, I want to work in the San Diego area and was wondering how they place in the area. I know USD will place better, but how would Cal Western be as a fall back? And what do you think my chances are in both 3.55/160

Thank you

Thank you very much raxel. I've scouring the internet trying to find a webstie like that. I know it's not too late because most oif the school don't even start accepting until early septemeber. I think I will retake the LSAT. I would like to bump my score up a bit, at least in order to get some $$$.

Thanks again raxel

So, I've decided that I am going to start law school in the spring of 2009 and have a few school that I plan on applying to. I was just wondering if you guys could let me of any other school that I could attend in the spring. Location isn't a major issue but I have my favorites. Gy UGPA is 3.55 (UCLA-History); but I also have a 3.89 (Cal State Northridge-Teaching Credential); LSAT: 155 (If I retake the LSAT in October will that delay my application from getting processed).

What would you say my chances are for ???:
California Western
Baylor Law School
Texas Tech
Penn State
Indiana-Indianoplis

I probably want to practice labor law. Which would be the best.

Thank you

Where should I go next fall? / Help with soft factors
« on: July 13, 2008, 08:22:49 AM »
Hello,

I'm planning on applying to a bunch of school for spring and fall and just had a couple of question.

I took the June LSAT and scored 155 (averaged 158 on prac tests). I plan on retaking it in October. I know my limitation and I know the highest I can score is around 162-163. My personal statement is pretty good (I hope), Iím just afraid of my soft factors. The three things I have are being a middle-school teacher in a low-income area with tons of ESL students, leading a research team to help improve working conditions for grape pickers in central California and I also coached a pee-wee football team.

I guess what I'm wondering is, just how strong are those factors? How much will they help?

I don't plan on applying to any of the top10 schools but I was wondering if someone could objectively tell me what my chances would be of getting into a top 25 or 50 school with my 3.61 GPA (UCLA), teaching credential w/ teaching experience, 162 lsat (gotta get studying) and all the rest of the stuff? I'm trying to work in the point that I lived in the former Soviet Union (think that'll help?). Cornell is my ultimate goal, possible?

I know that's a lot and I appreciate any help that anyone can provide.

Thank you and good luck to everyone else in getting into the schools you want.
