Where should I go next fall? / Re: UCLA v. Boston College ($$$)
« on: April 24, 2008, 04:44:55 PM »
Haha, I'm on the UCLA waitlist, too, with money from BC.  I'd prefer to work in LA, but at this point, I'm set on BC.  I'm considering just writing UCLA and telling them to take me off the WL, but I'd kinda like to see the final decision.

So then would you choose UCLA (no money) over BC ($$$) if it did come down to it??

oh yeah, and today, my professor just wrote me a kick ass waitlist supplemental recommendation and I hope it helps!

I do too!  Not that I have a personal agenda or anything...

You should know by now that nothing would make me happier than you getting off BC's WL.

Minority Topics / Re: Surge in hiring of law firm diversity managers

Up from 8% to 60% in just one year, wow. I wonder what the impetus was. I think it's a great step in diversifying law firms throughout America, but quite honestly, MUCH more needs to be done in terms of attracting more minority to actually apply to law school. I was looking at stats for law students from my ethnicity and it shows a decline or flat line in the raw number of matrics since the late 1980s.

Law School Applications / Re: Waitlisted.
« on: April 24, 2008, 04:26:34 PM »
UCLA, BU, BC.  Seeking aggressive treatment for senioritis to ensure I continue to raise my GPA, as it is definitely the primary reason I'm on these waitlists.  Then sending updated transcripts.

Good luck, GPA was definitely a HUGE reason why I got these schools, too. Thank god I already graduated and don't have to deal with more finals.

Mistakes
#1
I sent out the wrong e-mail address to UCLA, thus bouncing every single e-mail they sent me for an entire half year and missing a bunch of important information. I realized this mistake at the point when they waitlisted me. 

#2
Not taking an LSAT prep course.

#3
Asking for recommendations only a couple months before I needed them, instead of earlier.

yeah of course, i know. but it's just so hopeless to be the waitlist, it's like a de facto rejection... like a kind way of saying you're reject. but nonetheless, i'm keeping my hopes up!!!

Where should I go next fall? / Re: UCLA $$$ v. Boalt $

Yeah, I am. But I'm wondering if I should just withdrawal and focus on BC... If I do get into UCLA it may cost way more money and I'm trying to determine if it's worth trying to get off the waitlist...


1- UCLA will be more expensive
2- There are about 500 people on their wait-list

HTH

Christ, where'd you get that figure?? Do they like not reject people? Just place them all on waitlist...

Financial Aid / Re: Graduating with debt
« on: April 24, 2008, 12:22:07 PM »
Looks like 80-100k depending on 2L summer.

Wait, what's so special about 2L summer??

Your best shot at a paying summer job.

Does it really pay all that much more than 1L summer?
