Choosing the Right Law School / Re: San Diego Living?

Hey, I live in P.B. bro!  It's pretty tight.  Lots of stuff to do, and places to play.... oh wait, you're starting law school.

Live in Mission Hills.  Close enough to Hillcrest, North Park and Downtown to have a decent nightlife, far enough away that you can study and not be bombarded with noise and partying.

I lived in Mission Hills for years and loved it.  Look around Albatross and Washington for great prices.

You spelled it right.

but you're wrong about the ambulance chasers.  Some of them do quite well.  Just remember that number is dos dos dos dos dos dos dos.

In order:  LL.M, S.J.D., Ph.D., and then if the job market hasn't recovered.... second B.A. in Puppetry.


Hate to disappoint ya, but afraid it is so.  Long story short: In my situation I can't justify taking two years to go back and finish my undergrad degree, so a non-ABA school it is.

Totally off topic now, but did you consider Thomas Jefferson in San Diego?  Last I heard they still accept "exceptional non-B.A. candidates".  With a 170+.... you probably fit that bill.

(I was waitlisted there with a 167 before I finished my B.A., but I decided to take the extra year and finish up my degree.)

Lewis and Clark.  9th Cir. for the win.

What sort of post-grad clerkships do the Somalis offer?

I've known people transfer from CW to Hastings and Davis from the top 10%.

>< seriously. when i click on it, it took me to a youtube page for some reason. could somebody tell me wats the ranking for UCLA, USC, pepperdine and loyola marymount pls?! thank you sooo much! waiting on the rankings to make my final choice

Don't do that

If someone is so hung up on ranking that they'd wait to pick based solely a number.... leave them to their fate man.  Can't save them all Matthies.

Don't forget the yahoo group transferapps.

From Cal Western, one girl in the top 10% got into UC Davis and Hastings, but not into UCLA or Boalt.   Sounds about right to me.

Based on your specific situation, you're probably best served by going to LaVerne.

The employment market sucks right now, especially down market.  Graduating with next to no debt would give you such a leg up in terms of security and safety.

I made a similar decision and went with a full ride at a low ranked T4.  I'm fortunate in that upon graduation I won't be under a mountain of debt.  Some of my classmates, and some friends from the higher ranked school in town are sweating right now.  It's not a fun time to try and enter the market.
