If you don't mind my asking. . .for the USD students:

Do you know of any students who have access to resources in the Peace Center at USD?  I'm sort of drawn to USD because of that particular institute, and I'm wondering how realistic it is to think one could get involved in it during law school.

Did that make any sense?  Apparently I'm sleepy and sleepy doesn't come out coherent at times.

if i remember correctly, there are dual degree programs you can do with the ipj center, and you can always audit courses.

i got into usd ft with a 148, so my answer is...why not, apply to them all.

and for all those 'lsat score correlates with grades' ppl, dont listen to them, lsat tests nothing and in no way is indicative of your law school success. and without sounding like a jackass and listing grades,im doing just fine.

Minnesota.

I somehow doubt that you've had more posts.  You may well have registered before me, though (I'll take your word for it), so I'll retract the newbie portion of the comment.

i dont know about you...but im laughing. i heart discussion boards.

University of San Diego (especially since I live right next door to it)...LOL

There is a lot of mentorship going on for current students. The only thing is that the school is very expensive and most scholarships only last for the first year of law school. They do have a part-time evening program. My interaction with the USD law school staff when I was applying was not so positive. They seemed to be "bothered" by anybody making an inquiry. The law library staff is really nice and the professors that I met were friendly as well.

So, USD is your best bet for BIG LAW, in my opinion. 

Vera :)

You think USD is a better bet for San Diego biglaw than Harvard?  Stanford?  UCLA, even?  It would be nice if some of your reasoning could be geared towards explaining why that might be the case, rather than noting merely that the people are nice there (which is a positive, to be sure, but it doesn't in any way speak to the conclusion that "So, USD is your best bet for BIG LAW, in my opinion").  (The word so sets that out as a conclusion, rather than just an unrelated assertion.)

I'm sorry, you're calling me, or my post, flame?  Yeah, you should probably not talk anymore.  n00b.

i am a 1L at usd and i would say the any job opportunities in sd come down to class rank no matter what your school. the market here is extremly tight and there arent many jobs to go around. so unless you go to a t14, the school you go to doesnt really matter. so aim for the top 10%. but as you will quickly find out the first minute of law school, everyone believes they will be i the top 10%, which of course basic math and the law of averages tells us is impossible.
