As I looked into housing arrangements in malibu, I recognized how ridiculously expensive it was. If I go to Loyola, I could live at home. If I go to Pepperdine, I am looking at an additional $16000 including utilities and everything per year. Although Pepperdine did offer more $4000 more than Loyola, I would still be paying $12000 more per year. Is it worth it to chose to go to pepperdine over loyola?

Choosing the Right Law School / weird results
« on: May 10, 2009, 12:55:56 AM »
This doesnt really matter, but i am just curious. I got accepted with scholarship at loyola, pepperdine, UNLV, USD. I got a reply from southwestern today saying i am waitlisted. Isnt this weird? are they not offering me a place because they knew i probably wouldnt attend?

I am pretty determined to do international law. I am looking to do some kind of international private sector work, dealing with commercial disputes or corporate law (contracts, merger... that kind of stuff),between China and the States. So here are my choices, Pepperdine with a focus in dispute resolution, loyola with a focus in trial advocacy, or UNLV with a more general international law focus. Does anyone know how international commercial disputes are solved? where do they usually try a case if an american company dues a chinese firm for breach of contract? I am a newbie on this subject, so any input is greatly appreciated!

I have been accepted to

U San diego

Choosing the Right Law School / Pepperdine ($) or Chapman ($$)

I got accepted into University of San Diego, Chapman (90% scholarship, renewable if i get above 3.0) and pepperdine ($18000, renewable if i stay in top third of the class). I am still waiting on Loyola, USC and UCLA. I am a Chinese immigrant, 3. 64 Berkeley Legal Studies Honors undergrad, LSAT 160. should I go for pepperdine? my diversity statement for the scholarship hasnt been processed yet, what are my chances of getting more scholarship offer? Do I stand a chance in USC or UCLA? Or any chance at a better scholarship in Loyola? Thanks People!

Choosing the Right Law School / 3.6/ 160
« on: February 10, 2009, 10:34:41 AM »
i am an undergrad from UCberkeley, legal studies major. I have a 3.64 and a 160. i applied late in the cycle tho, coz i had to wait for LORs. what are my chances? i really really really wna get into loyola marymount. i am an immigrant from Hong Kong, migrated to the states when I was 14. I wrote an immigrant story of overcoming disadvantages during my transition in high school. i am worried sick abt acceptance letters. if i dont make it into loyola or pepperdine, should i wait for next yr? instead of going into a T3 school like chapman?
