San Diego / Re: Looking for a roommate Aug.1...
« on: May 02, 2007, 12:50:35 AM »
If anyone if looking for a roommate then let me know. I have a 75 pound Australian Cattle Dog and will be looking to rent a place with a yard. I'm not really picky but it's always nice to have roommates who don't party, especially since we'll be going to law school.

I just got my initial financial aid package from USD and it's all loans except for a few thousand in work-study. I'm just wondering if the final package will be the same as this one. Also, will there be enough time to do work-study? Is it worth going to USD without any scholarship money? I know that I'm going to be taking on massive debt but I hope that it's worth it. I would greatly appreciate a response, especially from current students.

Dan, I am far too fond of my puppy to let him go, but I appreciate the offer and maybe he can play in your yard, because I don't know if I can find one for him! 

I will also need to find a place with a yard for my dog so maybe we can be housemates? I would prefer to live with fellow USD Law students so if anyone is interested, let me know.

Is anyone going to that reception thing on Tues 4/24? I live in SD so I'll be there

What reception? I was just admitted on the 16th so I have no idea. I guess I won't be there then.  :-[

Did you get an acceptance packet? In my packet was a little flyer about the ASD. It says you have to RSVP by the 16th.

Unfortuneatly my packet did not have this flyer. I hope that there will be another ASW not only because I want to get a better feel for the campus but also because I need to convince my stepfather that USD is just as good a school as Loyola if not better. He went to Loyola and would love for me to go as well. I on the other hand prefer USD. I visited a few weeks ago after going to the San Diego Zoo and really liked the library. The people I spoke with were friendly too. Do you happen to know how and when we get our financial aid packets? I'll be giving up 15K a year from McGeorge (plus free books the first year) to go to USD so I am looking for some decent loans. I thought that USD might give me some scholarship money to match McGeorge but when I called they said that they don't match funds. I had already sent an e-mail asking for them to do so but I haven't received a response. I hope that USD with no money is a better choice than McGeorge with 15K a year. I think USD is worth it but my wallet won't agree in a few years unless I get a pretty good job.

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.
