« on: May 18, 2006, 05:39:25 PM »
my plan is to go to usd pt and work 2 days a week. my only incentive doinf this is that the compnay will reimburse part of my tuition otherwise i would go ft. im not 100% committed to thsi idea yet, but i think its what ill likelt end up doing

I don't think it would be so bad.  I'm assuming that your classes that you take over the summer would probably lighten up your courseload so you won't be taking as many regular ft classes.  Of course AZ is more qualified to answer this, but this is just my assumption/guess.

i am debating on whether to go ft or pt. if i stay pt my company will only require me to work 2 days a week and reimburse me up ro 6k for my tuition. but, on the other hand i want to fully immerse myself in law school. so im debating the trade off

I AM DONE!  And damn, is it a good feeling. :)

Happy to take new questions if I can be of help.

correct me if i am wrong. from what i gather from your posts, if i were to take pt class 1L, then i cannot make up those classes over the summer? i would actuallt have to finish them the next fall with my previous section at night? doesn't that make for incredibly long days?

I'm quite determined to actually do some real "work" this time around.

that'll be hard in sd. esp with beaches and sdsu nearby. those 2 things equal mornings filled with confusion, anger and shame.most of the time in that order.

Hey, this thread has been really helpful.  I'm hoping to apply to USD this fall. Having said that, I have yet to take my LSAT this June and want to finish in the 167/170 range.  My GPA is a 3.4 from the law school-less UCI (which btw, OC already has several law schools - mostly t2 and t3 - I think UCI wouldn't be much of a contender, seeing as most of the local big law firms recruit from their alumnae schools from LA/SF.  However, attending Chapman, Western or Whittier is advantageous if you wish to work in the local criminal/gov sector or small law firms since their alumnae base is pretty strong)

I know it's premature thinking, but I was just wondering whether I should continue to apply for the USD day F/T division if I score in the +90th percantile on my LSAT, since I have a low GPA.  Given the numbers, would you recommend that I apply as an evening student to ensure acceptance since their requirements are lower?  Or do they provide that as a waitlist option?

Tracy, its nice to see a fellow anteater on the boards. I graduated from UCI last June. What's your major?

Everyone from UCI is so nice. We're such a happy lot.

English Lit - I graduated in June 04.  What was your major? Were you affiliated?

I miss UCI like crazy!  :'( I was a CLS major. Nope, I wasn't affiliated. Were you?

Yah, I was affiliated.  Fun times.

I don't miss it now, but I did that first year after graduation.  I missed being plugged in to campus and having intelligent, thought-provoking classes and a social calendar.

That, and the real world is an adjustment!  Do you work f/t?

The first year after graduation is hell. And the real world sucks. I work ft now. It's nice making money but I miss the flexible schedule of school, the classes, being around people my own age etc. I'm very much looking forward to law school.

this is exactly how i feel!!! i just graduated and just now have gotten used to the idea of no free time and working with older people. but its is nice making noney and the work is interesting

I think the most important thing for Tracy is to not assume that you'll get any score on the LSAT and wait until your actual score comes out.

man oh man i can vouch for that. i thought i was hot stuff until i saw the score online. but practice hard and you hedge your bets. if you consistantely score high on timed practce tests, chances are you score will fall within a certain range and not deviate too much. hopefully anyways.

i see nothing wrong with pt, its a good saftey bet. from what has been said on the board you can switch to ft after 1L, or right before orientation of 1L. or, in my experience, request a transfer from pt to ft after you got in pt. be very nice and sincere with them on why you want to transfer and theyll let you in ft.

if you score in the 90%-tile you can basically go to any law school in ca your heart desires except for stanford, and cal. those would be crapshoots, but a well put together application can push you over the edge there, as well as anywhere else for that matter.

uci is trying to start a law school too. there was an article in the la times last year about how uci is trying to get the county courthouse moved on campus as a way to jump start the process.

that being said, usd is a nice place. i wont mind going there this fall.
