Choosing the Right Law School / Re: UCLA $$$ v. Boalt $

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

Choosing the Right Law School / UCLA $$$ v. Boalt $
« on: April 22, 2008, 12:26:07 PM »
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

NYU--> you get the entertainment law aspect in the big city, plus better job prospects

Choosing the Right Law School / Phone Call w/Dean of Admissions
« on: April 08, 2008, 11:49:36 AM »
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've been put into the "reserve pool." Does this mean I won't get any $$ from CLS? And how long does it take for them to make a decision? Anyone know?

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.

What do you guys think?

If you want to go to Harvard or Stanford, you need to retake the test.  Your GPA gives you a decent shot at admission, but with a 169, it's far from a lock.

If you want it, study for it and get a better score.  Simple as that.

Wrong, you don't NEED to retake it.

Retake a 169? Retake a 96-97th percentile score? Risky... I'd say keep 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.

Hi, are you familiar with the entertainment law aspect of the school at all?

What are the reasons people go to/reject Harvard law? I know the name gets you in doors, but significantly more? Anything else?
