It isnt unusual for Baylor to have the highest passage rate.  They have a very small class and all they do is review for the bar for 3 years- i hope they can pass it after that

You know, every school in Texas has the same set of required courses for those who plan to practice in Texas. I don't think it's fair to say one school "teaches to the bar" more than any other.

yeah except baylor has a lot more required courses than UT and they DO teach to the bar more than UT does; don't take my word for it, call and ask them, they don't try to hide this, in fact- it seemed like a selling point for them

unless you have an offer that is currently valid from a school they feel like they compete with for students you probably won't get anywhere

Incoming 1Ls / Re: OFFICIAL UCLA C/O 2009 THREAD!

I'm going to break the mold a bit - I LOVE both NYC and LA!

Westwood is really beautiful... a college-town feel but with lovely stores and restaurants, palm trees everywhere... of course sunshine.  Tree-covered streets full of lovely houses give it a very neighborhood-esque atmosphere.  You don't feel like you're in a big city in the bad ways, but of course you still have all the conveniences of a large metropolis.

I've found UCLA's part of LA to be really... perfect.  Beautiful Santa Monica is only a short drive away...  oh instead of carrying on rambling, here are some pictures I've taken of Westwood/the law school/Santa Monica/PCH.  Ignore my stupid captions.   ;)

Financial Aid / Re: UCLA Merit Scholarships?

OOH!  The mail just arrived back home in Virginia today, and my mother tells me UCLA is giving me $25,000 a year!   :D

Man, do am I ecstatic and relieved... but now I have to maintain a 2.5 GPA.   :-\  just kidding.

i bet your parents are happy. Tell them they should give you the extra 25k each year.
