I cant imagine doing a 3yr JD in 2yrs either, but my numbers are so crappy that I'm looking for any backdoor way of getting in. I read one of your previous threads about in-state and out-of-state, I think we have more in common than we thought. Just cuz you dont like Swingers doesnt mean we cant be friends . I would love to get into a UC myself, but it seems nearly impossible. Damn UC schools and their low tuition costs and great educational value all located in wonderful environments (with the exception of Davis- Im not a huge fan of cows)
BTW- Swingers is not about being a Neanderthal. It's about friends looking out for one another in a time of need.
Oh, before I forget, where are you applying to out of state. I'm from SoCal too and I am having a hard time choosing schools outside of CA other than NY, MA, IL
Thanks Deb, I actually just looked over the Loyola L.A app and I saw the two options, I guess some schools allow you to rank your preference and other don't i.e Loyola-Chicago.
BTW, please rent Swingers today

Has anyone heard of Southwesterns SCALE (Southwestern's Approach to Legal Education) program? It is a 2 year JD program that "utilizes simulated client files and externships to develop practical lawyering skills". Does this sound like a decent program to you all? Do you think hiring firms would look down on this or actually like the fact that a 3 year program was completed in 2 years? Also, does anyone know if it is harder to get into the SCALE program or easier compared to the regular FT?
Thanks DDT, I think I'm going to apply to my out of state schools as PT and in-state as FT. I don't want to take the chance that they sniff out the BS in my letter.
After this whole thing is over, after LSATs, Apps and all the crap that goes along with it I need to hit up "Vegas baby, Vegas!"
Thanks again for the help.
