Choosing the Right Law School / UT and the residency quota!!!
« on: September 18, 2004, 04:51:55 PM »
So honestly, what are chances of someone like me out of state getting into Texas?

I know everyone ive spoken with says that they have a state legislative quota that says they need 80% in-state admits. 2 people from my undergrad at UCLA that had like low 170s with a 3.8ish got into top 5s, but both got flat rejected from Texas. Is anyone else out there tossing their hat in the ring? And if you know something i don't...or do you just have an extra 70 bling to spare.

I say down with Texas and their ridiculously hot girls. ;D I'm petitioning to the UC Regents to deny all Texans and mess with them. :o

because of american's rep in intl law, their grads can get jobs in almost any metro US area. And in DC, it has a great rep. The location also has its ups since its in a really good area of DC near the embassies, but the actual law school is separated from the college by about 2 blocks north. To the point, i have lived in so cal my whole life and have heard a lot of good things about American and even thought about going there. Have never heard anything good about rutgers (isnt that in like jersey? ug!) so you will have trouble getting a cush 125k starting salary job unless you make it lucky in nyc.

In cali, i highly believe that Santa Clara in the bay and Loyola here in LA are highly underrated. Good schools that may not have the rep, but they are solid schools whose grads make bank (100K+ for my friends) coming out. Also in their respective regions, people give their grads props esp. with Loyola since all the media type flashy trial attys ie Cochran, Shapiro, Geragos all went there. Nationally, Tulane, and to a lesser extent American, should be higher. I don't really know why Tulane isnt first tier this year, it used to be like in the 30s for a long time then dropped a LOT. But if you thing of it solely by rep. its a good school (i dunno...maybe they had cockroaches in the library when they reviewed it) Tulane also has a strong base of alumni all over NY and CA, unlike a lot of second tier schools that are soley regional shitholes in like the midwest and new england. Anyways, these would be the schools i would look into esp. if you like w coast.

sd is a good school is you plan on being around the so cal area. i have a bunch of peeps who went there and i am from there, so i may be biased...i isnt a ucla or sc. but the education is good, the city is badass, and the undergrad girls are probably the hottest i know of besides like ut, vandy, and pepperdine

Tulane: cause its a REALLY tight town and you can make bank
Loyola: cause its a rich town and you can make bank
Santa Clara: cause its a cool town and you can make bank

I went to ucla undergrad and have a lot of family and friends who go or went to usc and ucla for both undergrad and grad. both schools are comparable JDs...but i would go to usc for 2 reasons: first off, their placement opportunities are a lot more YOU oriented...not to say you wont make a load coming out of ucla law, but usc seems to care for you more (prob since it costs more, is private, and overall have richer grads) second, ucla red tape sucks sometimes, while im sure usc has it too, but like i said...more YOU oriented. Socially, both schools are secular with ucla being a little more in the liberal-moderate side and sc being moderate. kids at usc also tend to be 'cooler' i guess since it is an easier undergrad to get into, but either one you go to you will find a niche. feel free to email me to elaborate.
