Wiimote, have you ever heard of a Non Sequitur? Think on that for a while before making another post.

^ minus Harvard, Yale, and Stanford

If you have a 170 you might as well apply to the top schools. It doesn't matter that you don't have a perfect score since it's good enough to get you considered.

CIVIL RIGHTS!!!?!??!  Civil rights.

He needs to make that argument in front of the mirror. I doubt it will pass the "laugh test".

Loyola > Pepperdine > Southwestern > Cal Western

Though if USD were in the mix, I'd go:

Loyola/USD (very preferential with these schools) > Pepperdine > Southwestern > Cal Western

Those are just my 2 cents.  While I was applying, I had a slight bias for USD over Loyola.  It seems to have a very good grip on the market where it's located whereas Loyola has to compete with UCLA/USC (and every other good law school grad that wants in at LA).  For Pepperdine, no one really had anything good to say about the school (occupational as well as the school itself) aside from the fact that the area is beautiful.  Truth be told, I avoided Southwestern and Cal Western because, and this could very well be hearsay, because I had been continually told that job options coming out of either school were subpar at best, especially out of Cal Western =\

Whatever the case, good luck with your cycle!

PS!  Oh yeah, I also didn't apply to Pepperdine because of their stupid mission statement thing lol

I hope a lot of people have the same view about the mission statement so my chances will be better  ;D

I didn't apply to Pepperdine for the same reason. They basically try to weed out all those people that aren't Christian. So it didn't seem like it was the right place for me since I'm Jewish. USD is also religious but it's different from Pepperdine because USD doesn't force their religious views on you. I'm sure that's more than can be said for Pepperdine.

Haha, I don't think you have to worry about getting in.  Your scores put you somewhere in the 75th percentile for both Davis and Hastings =D

He has a great chance at USC and at UCLA so he should look to those schools.

Here is what i have heard about Cal Western as compared to USD. You have better job prospects at the bottom of your class at USD than finishing top of your class at Cal Western.

I sure hope you're right because I have no idea how I did on my finals.  ???

If you don't mind moving then go to the better school. If nothing else you will have an interesting story to tell recruiters as opposed to those going to school in the area.

I had looked at USD before and was pretty close to the bottom 25%'s for LSAT and GPA.  However, I retook the LSAT in December and with the classes I've taken this semester, I should raise my GPA (not by a lot, but enough to make me more competitive)

I'll have to give them another look and see if I stand a better chance now.  As far as my situation, yes I am going to law school straight after completing my undergrad in May.

I was in your shoes last year since my GPA was below the 25% and my LSAT was exactly at the 25%. Good thing I applied to USD anyways because I got in (I'm not a URM) with a $16,000 yearly scholarship and now I'm a 1L here. So write a great personal statement and don't give up hope!

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Anyone have problems w/ dell

The only problems I had with Dell were AFTER I got it. They did not include the right amount of memory, the printer had to be replaced twice, and the computer crashed and died forever after only 2 1/2 years. It was a very expensive paperweight.

I am a mac girl now.  :)

I'm sure you've heard of something called a warranty. It seems you didn't buy one and therefore your computer was not covered. How can you blame Dell for this? An Apple wouldn't be covered either after 2.5 years unless you had purchased an extended warranty for it. I've had both Apple and Dell computers and like Apple better but to blame Dell for selling you a computer that lasted 2.5 years is silly. Electronics fail all of the time so make sure to buy a warranty if you want to guarantee a piece of equipment. I know that my Dell will last at least 4 years because I purchased a 4 year warranty. I hope that makes sense.

When I first read the thread title my brain processed:  "Opportunities for sex during orientation?"

That makes two of us. I bet the OP changed the title after we read it, lol.
