Choosing the Right Law School / Re: UCLA v. BOALT

You should be congratulated as well, I would say quite the atypical student (some things are more important than grades right?). You should be in no sweat, if my numbers are any indication.

The Admissions office is courting me pretty hard, having students call me and email me and inviting me to meetings and all. It's nice, trouble is i dont know how i stand at the top five schools at all. I love UCLA but I want to be the best at what I will do, and I need to hear from others to know whether they can be better or not.

Soft factors huh, well LA weather/nightlife is tops, no doubt. I'd get in-state tuition at the CA schools, and from what I hear UCLA's entertainment law is pretty good. I kinda want to travel the country, but then I kinda don't care either, I'm weird i guess...

Whoa, and is this the type of work that future lawyers end up doing? I'm imagining lawyers saying "here do this and do that" so they don't do it themselves, but with that pay wow its worth it lol. Are you familiar with other schools and their abilities to get students in those types of jobs as well?

How much do summer jobs after 1st year pay? Are they easy to acquire? Is hoping to make 5-10k during that summer unrealistic ?

I got an email saying HLS hasn't decided on my app yet and if there are things I want to send (transcripts, another essay, another letter of rec) I should. I don't really want to send my transcripts because of one bad grade I got last qtr. I am sending a lil one page essay. Any idea as to what else I can do, or if it's even worth sending?

Yeah people tell me that alot, "you enter law school knowing what you want to do and you change your mind 3 or 4 times"

I actually don't really buy that, but w/e. People that break into the industry are people, they put their pants on the same way I do.

The question remains, what are the advantages of top schools versus UCLA w/ some fin aid? I wouldn't consider entertainment biglaw so loans will be a factor. Job placement? Location?

Hi I'm in at UCLA (around 80k for 3 years) and Boalt (no fin aid yet), waiting to hear back from Harv, Yale, Stanf, Columbia with a 169 and a 3.65 at UCLA.

I've met with UCLA and they seem to want me, convincing me UCLA's entertainment law is awesome. I don't doubt it, but if I get into a top school, with no money, versus UCLA with money, I don't know what I'll do. Any advice? Would someone go to Boalt with the above info right off the bat?

I assume it will be easier to find a job coming from a top school, but since UCLA is in LA where I want to practice entertainment law, I figure it is almost negligible, no? School me please!

You will have no problem working big law and being rich , you should believe in yourself to find the prospects yourself. A motivated individual will succeed if he goes to Boalt, UCLA, or Loyola Marymount. It begins with you.

t(-_-t) give me a break...

I'm in at Miami with the apparently typical 69,000 award. 95% likely not going to attend though, so they can give it to all of you : ). Enjoy haha I hear the location is the bomb
