Studying and Exam Taking / Re: I.A.N. Study Group

what's I.A.N?

We could tell you... but then we'd have to kill you.   :D

Stick around and study, maybe one of us will PM you with the answer.

The first reading assignments are ready for Southwestern so I've been reading up on Torts and Crim Law and I should be finishing up Contracts this weekend. I started using E&E's for these classes and it seems to be helping.

I.A.N...? making guesses in my head.

Orientation in a week! Anyone in the evening program check the reading list for the start of class. Do we need to have this stuff done prior to the first day?

Southwestern / Who's Attending Southwestern?

I got off the waitlist about a week ago and I'll be starting the evening program this August. Anyone else attending?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Southwestern or Chapman?

Wow.  You and I are / were in the same boat.  until today I have been stuck with Chapman v. Southwestern for the same reasons - nice campus v. LA established name.  What swayed you?  I don't know what to do myself. 


My decison was made on a few factors. I searched through NALP to see what firms recruit at both schools and SW came on top. SW is 12 miles from where I live so I can commute my first year. If I were to go to Chapman I would need to move out and I cannot afford to take more loans. I know a good number of people attending SW so I don't feel as if I'm going in blind.

Hope you can make a decision that you're satisfied with. If you are interested with Entertainment Law I would definitely choose SW.

I called Chapman and declined the offer. SW makes much more sense. I went to the bookstore today to get my LR&W books...looking forward to starting soon.

Thanks for your $0.02.

I'm stuck betweem Southwestern (PT) or Chapman (FT). I don't mind going PT so I can work a little and try to pay my way. I am hoping to get a job at Skadden, Arps, Slate... through an Associate friend of mine so I might be able to make some useful contacts. I would also prefer to stay in LA for work. Chapman would not allow me to work but at least I can finish in 3 years and I really like the area and campus. I like the fact that it's associated with a university and is across the street from the undergrad campus. Going to Chapman will also allow me to apply to the JD/MBA program that SW does not offer.

What to do?

Wait List / Re: Off the Waitlist at Southwestern

Got a call today from Southwestern. I'm in the evening program. Beaming with joy.

it's a tough choice to make but you should be glad that you're in a position to make this decision. Have you tried using one school as leverage over the other for scholarship money? It might be worth a shot, I know many people on this board have tried before but it needs to be done very delicately

BTW, I PM'd you about SW's waitlist.
