I am on my second pabst on a cold and rainy saturday in seattle. I have 50 bucks on UNC -5 and a wicked hangover from last nite. Yet i would want it no other way.
Now to a bit of seriousness:
I am originally from So Cal and want to practice there.
As of today, my choices for LS are:
Chapman with 40% scholarship first year, renewable upon 30% class ranking
Syracuse with 2 feet of snow.
What school do you all think will better prepare me for the CA bar and for future employment in the state of CA?
Syracuse is undoubtebly a better school than Chapman, but would that help me in So Cal?

I sent my application in october, received acceptance yesterday.
Envelope is slighly larger than a postcard.
hope that helps.

by practice I am talking about securing a good job.

So checked the mail today and much to my surprise was an acceptance letter from syracuse. For those of you curious as to size and shape, the envelope was larger than standard... maybe 6x11. They were even kind enough to include a window sticker.
Now here is my question to all you wise sages out there:
I really want to practice in California. The schools I have been accepted to currently are all California schools and are 3rd/4th tier. Syracuse is by far a better school than my current options.
To what extent would a syracuse degree allow me to practice in california?

I was wondering if anyone (besides myself) will be attending Chapman's preview this week which runs from thursday-saturday?
I am in seattle and they are paying for my airfare and hotel. I am curous if any other "out of staters" got the same deal?

I wouldn't factor in where I would attend school based on political ideology. I am one of those "california republicans" and pretty much agree with the last post.
For the record, I go to the university of washington which is probably one of the most liberal/borderline socialist (for reals, they represent on campus) schools in the country and I have had a blast in my four years here despite having disagreements with professors and students alike.
just my 2 cents

With all admissions quiet the past few weeks, I can safely conclude that this week and next week our mailboxes will become living creatures. They have to right? With spring break, Feb LSAT scores out, and many school's early-mid april demand for deposits, I really think that over the next two weeks chaos will ensue.

As the mailbox remains empty, I am finding myself mulling over my acceptances.
Although I like the first year scholarship offer (40%) from Chapman, I am curious about Cal Western in San Diego.
I know enough about Chapman, but know little of Cal Western.... Anyone want to help me out here? Other than simple stats that I pull off of LSAC, Review.com, etc, what do you all think of the school?

If i don't start hearing from these other schools soon, I will fight them.
It is nice, however, to have no idea where i will be in 6 months.
To deal with waiting, I want to devise a drinking game based on acceptances, denials,etc
Kill a fifth if my number 1 says "no" is the only thing coming to mind...

My name is MRizzle. I won't tell you what my government name is becuase it is not importnant.
The details of my life are inconsequential.
Nonetheless, I am a senior at the University of Washington. I was wild a little early on and have been digging myself out of a low Frosh gpa for 3 years.
I have a 3.03 (LSDS.. the bastards dropped it big time) and a 156.
I applied to Southwestern, Chapman, Whittier, UNLV, Syracuse, DePaul, USD, Thomas Jefferson, Cal Western, and Catholic.
I am originally from so cal, specifically the 909 (go ahead, make jokes), and want to come back to the golden state for my legal education and eventual career.
I just found this discussion board last week or so and am as addicted to it as I was to the LSDAS site.
