Law School Admissions / Re: Accepted TODAY !!

Just found out I'm in at UC Davis.


I wanted to go...but then I realized I'm getting my wisdom teeth out that day.  :(


Just wondering if anyone is attending the brunch next Friday. I have never visited Hastings, and I hope that it will be a good opportunity to get "the feel" for the place.

I don't know if this means anything, but according to LSN, last year the majority of decisions around 2/23 were acceptances.

Even if it doesn't, I am going to think that it does! Here is to the 23rd!

haha, my stomach aches just thinking about all that.

Same here. It will be a sleepless night next week.

Can't we all just get along...  ;D

We should all unite, hold hands, and chant 10 more days!!

I am grateful that I made it this far! Good luck all.

You better believe that's a lot of school pride. I'm a Bruin for life. Which is why I couldn't even apply to USC law. As for the game tonight, sorry about that. And by "that" I mean that we had to sweep you in all 3 games in football and bball this year. maybe next year?

And yes, this rivalry is all in good fun. Nothing I love more than going at it with a USC fan. (That sounded dirty but it wasn't meant to be).

The best part of this is it's a girl doing the trash-talking.

This thread has officially been hijacked and turned into the "UCLA-USC basketball game tonight" thread. :)

I just think it'll be funny if I end up at USC for law school.

So close, so close, you guys pull off these amazing endings!

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Hastings or Santa Clara?

Either way, by going to a decent school (which SCU most certainly is) that gives me the financial security to do what I want post-graduation, I'll at least know that I have the freedom to make that choice. Hope this helps.

Thanks for clarifying the importance of class ranking. All I can say is I'll try my best.

Re the quote: Yes, you've helped a lot-- perhaps too much. Coupled with the other reply regarding SCU and the fact that IP doesn't fully require a strong science background, I feel like I'm back to square one!

The fact that SCU would be overall ~$30k cheaper for me than Hastings, compounding the reply from that other kind person stating that a strong science background is not necessary to be a competitive IP attorney (and this is quoting an IP prof *at* SCU, no?), not to mention that SCU would have a smaller class and therefore less competitiveness re class ranking.

What a decision, christ!

I am in the exact same boat with these two schools, but I am leaning towards Hastings. I am considering IP litigation or public interest as well. I was concerned about Hastings and IP until I did some research about their IP courses and it seems that they have a lot of adjunct professors who practice in IP litigation.

As for the science background in IP, I spoke with a partner at an SF firm and he said that you need a masters or PhD in a technical background to be super competitive for IP litigation. In all honesty, I think he was trying to scare me, by the time you have a PhD and a JD you would be 30 something without any experience. Anyway, take this how you wish. I have an undergraduate technical background, and I might go back for my masters if I have time but definitely not my PhD.

I will be curious to see what you do. Good luck!

Why don't you do a joint JD/Masters degree?  Only 4 years total.

You are so right, I completely forgot I could do that! I need to check into this...
