i think it's pretty pricey anywhere in ca...if u're comparing to the rest of the country...ah hell, probably the rest of the world

that just bites.

you used to be able to live much cheaper near the border.  still the case?

We just secured a house with a fenced yard, garage, basement and huge deck in City Heights for $1900/mo.  That may seem like a lot but this house has been completely redone and is pretty large.  City Heights is a neighborhood undergoing refurbishment and seems quite.  I think ultimately the cost of living depends on what you are willing to live with.  We have 4 animals and for us it is perfect.

city heights until very recently was called eastside. as in east st. louis. but, they are sprucing up the place do its up and coming.

this is exactly why im a fan of the "go to the best school you can get into"

The best law school you can get into based on usnwr rankings? or best law school based on your personal perrogative and what constitutes your personal defination of excellence and success?

still havent heard anything regarding my status.... been complete since december

im visiting usd next wknd from th east coast.. so id love to visit loyola too if they just let me know!!

i would inform lmu that you're in the state and would love ot visit the campus. then ask for some type of tour and if you could talk to an admissions consouler or asst dean of student affairs or what have you. its much harder for them to reject a face that they know.

are you admitted to usd? its an alright campus; nothing to hate, but nothing to fall in love with.

You are so not alone!  I am WL at Davis and USF, and STILL have not heard from Hatsings.  What is wrong with Hasting?!  My god they are killing me.  My only acceptance so far is to GGU (even w/ 20k per yr scholarship, I am hesitant to accept).  I really do not know what to do.  Hang in there pinky!  If you come SF, I'll buy a beer and we can curse the LSAT and this whole damn stressful process together.

Thanks Holly! I just wasn't sure whether to give up on getting into my pending/WL schools because I've been waiting forever! Sometimes it seems hopeless...  :-[ But its good to see there is a bunch of us in the same position & hopefully some of these schools will be taking us off their WLs soon...

Pinky - what schools are you waiting on?  We are in San Diego right now waiting to hear if we are approved for a house we want.... waiting sucks no matter what its for

I STILL haven't heard back from Loyola & I'm also hoping, by some miracle, I get off the USD WL...

heres some food for thought. a classmate of mine from highschool applied to usd with a 159, 3.7 from ucsd. he got waitlisted in mid april. he immeadiately sent his latest transcript, a letter of continued interest and one additional LOR. he recently (about a week ago) received a letter saying he has been extended an offer for the fall 06 FT and taken off the waitlist. i think persistence and a whole lot of luck has a lot to do with this wl thing.

that being said i am on the waitlist at both loyola and uc davis. given the chance to go to either one of these over usd (which is where im pretty sure i'll be going) i'd jump on it in a heartbeat.

After those top 4, I think that USD should at or above the levels of Davis, Hastings and Loyola.

the uc name carries a lot of name cache that travels much better than lmu and usd.theres another thread comparing davis to usd. it basically boils down to name recognition in their respective markets.

Tell us oh wise USD 1L because your posts are very entertaining.

And of course I'm a 0L...isn't this site designed for it? Don't you have finals next week?   

dont fight it, just roll with it, bc you've been owned. if you fight it, we just keep ragging on your shame, ignore it, and it will go away.

]But numbers don't lie.  USD's employment rate at graduation is 65.8% while UC Davis has a 81.3 percentage. 

I know you're a 0L, so you have no idea how the schools actually generate those employment numbers; would you like me to tell you, or is it moot because they do not lie?  Do you think the law school job elf follows graduates around to see who's naughty and nice??  Get real.

hahahaha.....sighhhh, but seriously, good answer.
