Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: BC vs. Davis
« on: April 12, 2005, 11:26:09 AM »
Yes, Davis is a very nice, laid back college town, and a great law school. I don't know much about BC to compare, but I can assure you that Davis is an excellent choice. It also places well in the bay area, a lot of SF firms do OCI at Davis, so it's not like you'd be stuck in Davis forever. If you do decide to go to Davis, I'd reccomend looking for housing fairly soon. Being a college town, housing is very cyclical and many students line up fall housing in the spring. Good luck!

I did one, full length, timed test. The rest of the time I just did one section at a time, usually not timed, but time wasn't a big issue for me. If you are concerned about time, it might be a better idea to do more timed've got to figure out what works best for you.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: $93,000 Cost of Attendance? Huh?

I had to call the financial aid office with a question about the O'Neill loan (for Sacramento residents) and they were really helpful and nice - but my situation wasn't as weird as yours  ;)

I can understand not wanting to leave SF, but I'd say choose Davis. If you look on the NALP directory ( I think), it shows that 140 or so firms do OCI at Davis, and many of these are firms in San Francisco/Bay Area, so I don't think you'd have to be worried about being stuck in Sacramento. I went to Davis undergrad - it's really not a horrible place to spend three years.
As for the deposit...I know there are several people on this board who are sending in more than one seat deposit. Usually there are two deposits, one in the spring, and one in the summer - just don't send the second deposit to whatever school you will not attend.
And hopefully Hastings will come through for you. Good luck! :)

ummmm, huh? My Hastings finaid letter lists cost of attendance at $41,000 for the whole year, or something like, yeah, thats weird. What does your award include? Do they expect you to take out $50K in private loans or something? Wacky.

I got my waitlist letter in the mail today too - 3.67/168.
Not too disappointing, I wasn't going to go there anyway  ;)

I'm so glad that you all had a positive experience too! It felt very warm and welcoming to me, more so than I had expected, and I can totally see myself there. Calblue- do you think you'll live in the Tower? I've already sent my deposit in.
I received my finaid paperwork and got the $5000 grant - about what I expected.

Hey Zildjian, I graduated in 2001  :)
Yeah, look under Sacramento on Craigslist and then use "Davis" as one of your search terms. Housing in Davis is very cyclical because it is such a college town, so most students line up fall housing in the spring, around April or so. I'm not sure how dog friendly any of the places are, but I'm sure you could find something. I'd definitely recommend that you start looking soon, though.

I actually went to Davis undergrad, so if you have any questions about the town, I'd be glad to help. I don't know any current Davis law students though.
Davis is just about as opposite from Hastings as possible. It very college town-ey - with a very liberal, laid back vibe, bicycles everywhere. The law building is older and a little stuffy, but I've heard they are doing renovations. It's a great school, and like I said feel free to ask me any questions...
