okay if that's how you like to play, i see two question marks and one disjunction, totalling 2-3 Qs.
or if you want to focus on the second and only pertinent question, you'll realize the word "or" in the middle, making "yes" an inappropriate answer...
thanks for your elaboration.

My mother is a professor there. Please share your impressions after some time.

Not that I am really considering it, but it'd be interesting. I'm a west coast guy. :)

That's actually some good advice.
I've only put those schools at the top of my consideration due to GPA (mine and their average), ranking, reputation (and recruiting) and locale.
But, my first 2 years had a really low GPA and my second two years should average at 3.6+. Not knowing how they calculate GPA and then weigh compared to LSAT leaves me rather clueless, I guess. :)

Thanks for the reply.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Thinking Ahead: Considering Schools
« on: February 09, 2009, 11:50:40 AM »
Hi everyone,
Long time lurker here but finally registered. Some great insight, so I thank you all for that.

I am currently in my final year of undergrad at UBC in Vancouver, Canada. I hope to take the next year off and live/work in China. Then I'll return to the US for Law School.

I am considering these 3 schools:
University of San Diego
Loyola Marymount University
University of Santa Clara
(As you can see, I would like to be in CA - too bad I don't have the grades for USC/UCLA/UC-Hastings, UC-B, etc. I might consider Pepperdine, but probably not.)

Anybody on here attend these? How do you like the campus - profs, fellow students, curriculum, overall environment?

My GPA in first 2 years was not so hot, it is better now but as you all know it is very hard to bring up an average. So my final question is this: How do you find out how each school weighs your GPA? Both in terms of GPA/year (all equal vs 3rd and 4th year weighed more), and compared to the LSAT (ie, 50% GPA/50% LSAT, or 60/40)?

Thanks a lot, looking to participate more on this board as I get closer to crunch time.
One last thing, might as well ask if there are any other members on here from UBC/Vancouver? Looking to take the TestMasters LSAT prep course this summer.

Cheers,
Wyatt

Stanford (West Coast guy)
NYU (not sure why)
Berkeley (West Coast guy)
4th set is all equal to me.

If all else is equal and they are in the same tier, might as well go to wherever you'd be happiest, right?
