my boss (well, ex-boss) quit his job in the IT department here at ucla law to work at UCI. i am not sure about the whole accredited thing, but i know i will be applying to UCI especially with everything my ex-boss has been telling me. the UCI application is quite comprehensive, requiring an additional statement to the personal statement and requiring 3 letters of recommendation. there are also a bunch of optional statements, like about diversity and whatnot, that you can provide. only 60 students are going to be accepted, and i know that a lot of faculty from other top-tier law schools were recruited to teach at UCI. i dunno, being a part of the first-class of a law school seems appealing, especially it being a small class (getting to know professor's on a really intimate level) and, of course, because it will be free.

i've also been told that they will be only accepting those with high gpa's and high lsat scores b/c they want to be a top tier law school asap. anyway i just incoherently spit out all i know about UCI law, sorry

I don't think too many top students (170+/3.6+) will choose free tuition at such risk vs. sure $$ at top schools. but 60 is a pretty small number and they just might pull this off.

Apply with an addendum stating that you are retaking Dec and expect, based on your practice tests, to approach or exceed 170.  Hopefully they'll put you on hold.


Study your arse off, take Feb or June, and apply early go to Harvard.

what's the difference between applying with dec score and applying now and telling them to hold?

Interesting...anyone more knowledgeable than me have any thoughts?

UC Irvine, in terms of their UG, is a legit tier 1. As for the law school, free tuition thing at this time is in bit of a paradox. it makes sense to get a JD for free during bad economy, but you are risking your life in the long run by gambling with a non-accredited school. Worst case scenario is you sit next to a cubical with a cooley grad. Best case scenario is you are ahead of everyone by an average of $75k.

If you graduate while the school is still non-aba accredited, and becomes accredited after graduation, will your degree still have the same merit as a degree granted from accredited schools?

oh, and don't forget to read replies by "Ellen" for a good laugh.



I took the last December 07 and October 08. I canceled both. I had really bad luck and was sick both times with a bad cold. if I take this December LSAT, that would make 3 in 2 years. Since 2 yr period is over, does this mean I can take next June's (09) if for some reason I had to cancel again? (which is highly unlikely)

You definitely could have been caught doing worse things. Having sex isn't's awesome.  Find out if it's on your record, and if it's not, great, and if it is, I still don't think it will be that big of a deal.  You weren't caught drinking underage, doing drugs, or plagiarizing.  Those would be looked poorly upon...but even ad comms have sex.

no, they don't.

Law School Admissions / Re: Question on how to apply for the fee waivers

Usually depending on your LSAT score, the schools will tell you (through email or snail mail) if your application fee is waived.  Other than that, there is a way to do it through LSAC to get all application fees waived, but I don't know how to do that.

how do we notify the schools with our lsat scores?

The experimental section was a LR, and the section of the three LR I felt I had performed the best on.

that's always a bummer. I hope everything turned out okay for you though.

is there any other way to apply for application fee waiver other than lsac?
