Where should I go next fall? / Re: 160-164 Thread (give or take)
« on: February 08, 2008, 07:24:53 PM »
I've recieved some pretty good scholarships at low tier one and tier two schools with a 163 and a 3.4. A friend of mine has a 157 and high GPA and has recieved a 20k/year scholarship at the university of maine and university of new york (not NYU). Hope this helps.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: UC Davis or Hastings-Pros and Cons

Yeah mad jealous that you have the choice between the two. I haven't heard back from either.  :-\

I love love love Davis and love love love "the city" (san fransisco). You really cant go wrong. I dont think employment in SoCal will be too tough. There are only a few law schools in Southern California and the whole UC system is so well respected. Hastings may place a little better.

I have a few 1L friends at Davis who are absolutely in love with it...

Um...not so much...UCLA, Cal Western, Chapman, La Verne (not sure I'd really consider this a law school, but people go there), Loyola, Pepperdine, USD, Santa Clara, USC, Southwestern, Thomas Jefferson, Whittier

There's more than a few...granted SoCal is a big legal market, but there are a LOT of law schools in CA (20 according to LSAC).

I do agree that the UC system schools are probably well respected though. However, I'm not sure you'd be better of at Davis than like Loyola if you are going to SoCal.

Sorry, I should have specified T1 schools. Yes there are more small schools, but personally I don't think you can even consider Chapman, Thomas Jefferson, CalWestern or Southwestern in the same league. Santa Clara is in the bay area. As far as the small privates go, I'm sure they are fine locally but California wide the UC system is unparalleled. (Again, all of this is in MY opinion- not to be regared as fact)

As an undergrad at Davis I had the opportunity for some great internships with at the capitol and with lobbyists. The location is very helpful in that respect. 20 min drive to downtown sac.

Law School Applications / Re: Is it so much to ask?

Alllll I want is to go to a UC Law school. My numbers are solid but not stellar. The SO and I live in Sacramento so Davis is ideal. I already got rejected by UCLA and I'm feeling less secure about Davis and Hastings as each day passes. Sometimes being a Californian sucks. I feel like a decently smart girl should have at least one state school as a safety.

Hey Numbers Twin! I think you're definitely worrying a bit too much. While it's possible that you won't get into either, you probably will get into to at least one. At least, that's what I'm hoping for in terms of my chances.

Anyway, don't stress yourself about this. You've already been accepted at some great schools, and hopefully both of us will see an acceptance at Hastings or Davis soon. Good luck!

Hopefully! Good luck to you!

Low tier two schools??? I think I'll hang on to one of the best schools I've gotten in to so far. I think you should focus your energy on something else besides presuring people to give up spots at schools that they have rightfully earned.

Yeah, I think their overall laid back attitude is trickling over to their admissions process. Send good vibes to Davis. I went there for my undergrad and I love it so much. I'm friends with some 1Ls there and they have nothing but amazing things to say. I'm so anxious.
