General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Thinking Ahead: Considering Schools
« on: February 09, 2009, 04:43:50 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.


*I think this is in the wrong sub-forum. :(
