It's supposed to be, but it's hard to get a straight answer from either school, both so biased...

UCLA around 100k
Boalt around 50k
Waitlisted at Yale, Stanford, Columbia
Waiting to hear from Harvard.
I am interested in Sports law. I like the flexibility I will have graduating with less debt, but Boalt is around 10 spots better than UCLA, plus I like their grading system better.
Plus, I'm WLd at YSC, and I assume I will get no money if I get into one of those. Any thoughts on what I should expect about those three waitlists? And if you had to choose now, what would you pick? Thanks
Advice on how to ask a Dean for more money? I have already been given about 3/4 tuition at a top 20 law school, but I would like to use my admittance at Boalt as leverage to get even more money. Any ideas??

I did score higher on my practice tests, but that was on average. I scored anywhere from 168 - 175. The reason I don't really want to take it again is because I don't have as much time as I had before to study and there's no guarantee that I'll do better. As you guys know, there are 20 different factors that determine your test score, aside from how well you do practice tests.
Wrong, you don't NEED to retake it.

Well I got a 169 and I got a 3.65 from UCLA. I got into Boalt and UCLA, waiting on Stanford and Harvard and Yale and Columbia, so we in the same boat still...
Harvard emailed me though and said they havent made a decision and I could augment my file with new grades, essays, recs, etc. I didn't lol.
Where should I go next fall? / Re: Law School Sucks, But HLS Sucks Less: Harvard 1Ls Taking Questions« on: February 21, 2008, 03:09:46 PM »
What are the reasons people go to/reject Harvard law? I know the name gets you in doors, but significantly more? Anything else?
