  I had one school (Santa Clara) contact me immediately saying they received it.  I later got into another school and sent a seat deposit (University of San Diego) and heard absolutely nothing back.  I just called them yesterday about it and they said they had received it.

I believe that recommendations were optional at both The University of San Diego and Santa Clara University.  :)

  Wake Forest, Duke, and William & Mary are really beautiful.   :)

  Between UCONN and Wake Forest I'd say go to Wake.  It's ranked (a little) higher than UCONN and, as you said, it would give your wife more opportunities. I don't know anything about the other school so it's hard to say.

  I was wondering the same thing.  Especially since I want to go into intellectual property law.   :)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Do I have enough time?
« on: April 06, 2004, 11:35:59 AM »

   You might want to try taking old LSATs (the real ones) and seeing how you do.  If you do well then you probably don't need a lot of time to prepare.  I found that those tests were very accurate when I took them timed.  I averaged a 168, which is exactly what I got when I took the LSAT for real.  I also found that they were the best way to study (for me, anyways).  Goood luck!   :)

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Santa Clara vs Pepperdine

  Wow...thanks for all the advice!  I really appreciate it.  As a lot of you mentioned, Pepperdine IS very conservative...It was one of the things I was a bit uncomfortable with at their open house.  I ended up putting down my deposit at SCU.  However, since then I've gotten into Univ. San Diego and yet again I'm not sure which one I will go to.  I will have to visit them both in order to decide.  (Neither has given me money).  Thanks again for your advice.  I thought this decision would be easy...I was SO wrong!  Good luck with your decisions.  Maybe I will see some of you in the fall!    :)

Where should I go next fall? / Santa Clara vs Pepperdine
« on: March 27, 2004, 05:58:15 PM »
        Hello!  I am having a really hard time deciding between Santa Clara and Pepperdine.  I've gotten wait-listed at a bunch of higher-ranked schools, but I'm not counting on any of them right now.  I've narrowed it down to these two.  Santa Clara is lower tier 2 and seems to put a lot of emphasis on intellectual property law (I will soon have my PhD and want to practice patent law).  Pepperdine is tier 3 (they claimed during their new student day that they will be tier 2 within the next year or so but I don't know how they can know that so I don't trust it).  Pepperdine isn't so focused on intellectual property law BUT they are in the area I want to be in (Southern California).  Does anyone know anything about either of these schools- why I should or should not go to them?  Would my job prospects be any different depending on which one I go to, or are they really about the same?  Would law firms even care if I had many classes in IP law?  Also...if I haven't heard from a few schools right now would you agree that it's a bad sign?  Sorry for the long post...I am SO confused right now!  Thanks for any advice you can give!  :)

  Hello!  I also took classes at a local college while still in high  school and the LSDAS counted them...even though I recieved high school credit for them.

  Thanks!  That does help...it definitely gives me hope.  I can't find any school that will admit to having absolute cutoffs, although I know they probably have them.  Do you know of anywhere to get this info?
  Also...if you don't mind my asking...where did you end up getting in?
