Where should I go next fall? / Re: San Diego (big) Law
« on: October 16, 2006, 08:04:06 PM »

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 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.

i'm bringing this thread back to life because it is the right thing to do. each new applicant pool needs to drink deep from the hatorade. ENJOY!

I never got my rejection. Weird..... ???

i dont know if this pertains to you anymore, but usd is still accepting students. i met 2 people who were accepted during the 2nd day of orientation and literally left work at noon to make it to the last few hours of orientation. both of these ppl were to the evening division.

i will be a usd 1L this fall. the over all campus imo is quite small. i went to sdsu and im used to a campus that sprawls everywhere with hundreds of buildings. the law building is very brown, but it is serviceable. i wasnt too impressed with the library, but it seemed large enough.overall my impression of the school is satisfactory, but not wowed.

ive been on the wl since april. i give up. i throw in the towel. lmu, you have gotten the best of me.

Oh don't say that! Have faith!, but um, eh... are you WD from the WL???  ;D

mmmm we're still playing that game eh? the short of it is no, bc i want to hold on to that spot like a bf holds on to his ex gf's old unwashed sock.

I hear you... although I tell myself that I haven't given up, really there is nothing to give up... so I'm just going on with business as usual hoping that maybe I'll get one of those calls or lucky emails...   :-\

So kids, I think this is it... down to the wire, next week is the 1st week of August and any/all final decisions should have already or will be made by next week, this is what LLS told me when I talked to them.

Is anyone planning on making a cameo on orientation to see what's up? I'm sure not everyone can since not everyone is in L.A.... but do you all think something like this could work???

im sure if you have the time and the eye of the tiger i say go ahead and show up. i dont think theres much to lose at this point
