I'd suggest doing all of the above. Send in applications to Cali schools before the deadline. If you dont get in, try to transfer as 1L.

I ended up visiting the school and met with the Dean of Admissions for about an hour. For me, the visit was extremely beneficial because if I'm admitted from the waitlist, I know I'll surely accept. I highly recommend visiting if you are on the waitlist at your top school. At the least, the committee can put a face to your application and they will also appreciate your dedication and commitment to attending the school. Negativity aside, how about a proactive approach?? Just my two cents...
If you were on the waitlist for your top school of choice, and you were visiting the school, what kinds of questions would you ask? I guess its pretty obvious that I'm this situation, but I'm not really sure what I should be talking about when I go in. What is the standard protocol for these waitlist visits? Do you sit down with someone from the admissions committee and actually go over your application package? Aside from the standard school tour, what else can I do to improve my chances of being admitted?

Did anyone else go to Seton Hall's Admitted Student's Day today? What were your thoughts/concerns?
Here's my take:
The Dean and Assistant Dean seem nice and genuinely committed to the School's future. Does anyone else feel an induced false sense of security about the program? I dunno. Maybe its my spider sense...
The Tort Professor was very interesting. He gave a brief overview of what a tort is, and engaged the class in a healthy discussion about the nature of liability. Good communicator and hopefully an actual example of what students will experience this Fall.
The tour of the school was ok. Nothing spectacular, except for the large number of windows that allow for lots of sunshine (when the sun actually shines in Newark..) The library seems a bit small for the twelve-hundred or so students that are currently enrolled there. The building is quite nice though = )
Housing seems adequate, although a bit on the expensive side due to the School's proximity to Manhattan.
And most of important of all, JOBS actually do exist during and after graduation. The School seems to offer quite a few opportunities for externhips and clinics. I don't know what a successful student might actually make in terms of salary because only 45% of graduates responded in the US News survey.
What did you guys think? Have you decided to go based on what you saw today?
so what are some of the best Korean movies that are out on dvd?
Harvard Love Story! C'mon, its got 2 lawyers, a conspiracy, a love interest with cancer / leukemia (standard in any korean movie), and a love story. What more could future law students ask for!?? Anyone else seen this drama?
Anybody familiar with the Seton Hall campus? How about the surrounding area? I'm trying to decide between Hofstra and Seton Hall, but I haven't heard great things about the Seton Hall neighborhood. What do you guys think?

Yea, I'm in a similar situation. I've got a few applications still pending at my "reach" schools, but I'm starting to settle on Hofstra. Have you visited the campus yet? My biggest concern is the high cost of living!
Has anyone seen Tae Guk Gi? If not, check it out. Especially if you're Korean. It's a great flick about brothers fighting in the Korean War.
Is it true the girl in Tae Guk Gi committed suicide last week? Why!???
