Law School Admissions / Re: Not a Strong Reader
« on: March 25, 2009, 01:37:12 PM »
i took the effective reading course and i think it helped. check it out. its abt $400 for a 4 class course.... but it teaches you how to concentrate and digest what you are reading. it also doubled my reading speed

Yea I wrote the mission statement. I am not totally christian, but I agree with some christian values so I am ok with that part. But i am more concerned about.... say.... supporting abortion rights in class discussions. Is the school so conservative people will gang up against me if I support abortion or gay rights? I am from berkeley.... and thats all we talked about in legal studies.

just a suggestion.... consider not finding someone from law school as ur roomate. i cant imagine being with law school competitors 24/7. maybe an undergrad who doesnt party?

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / any thoughts on Pepperdine?

Does anyone know anything about Pepperdine? networking? faculty? diversity? reputation? their conservatism?Thanks! any input would be great!

will you consider transferring into some second tier or 3rd tier schools? sorry this might sound cruel, but I think jumping form a t4 to a top tiered school such as UCLA, Berkeley... USC seems to be a little unrealistic. remember, these schools also have people who has 4.0s and trying to transfer from t2 or t3 schools. try to check out where did the transfers got into from Whittier v. WEstern. goodluck!

I am still waiting on loyola but any suggestions if i do get in? I wouldnt have to move out if I go to loyola. I would if i go to pepperdine. the cost of living is outrageous in malibu.... so thats a consideration. if I do get into loyola, should I still chose pepperdine? Is it a big difference in terms of connection, reputation, starting salary... etc between the two schools? Thank you! any advice would be good!

from wat i know... the ppl u call to check on ur status is not the ppl who will review ur file. the ppl u call are people from the admissions office. they told me they wont know anything abt it if its in review already, which meant its passed to the admissions council. so i dont think calling to ask will effect ur application.

it seems like the higher the ranking, the less scholarship it offers me. (in the exact order, ranging from 35000 from chapman to 18000 from pepperdine)

I have been accepted to

U San diego

where should i go?
