Choosing the Right Law School / LSD Mandatory Hiatus/Moratorium
« on: February 22, 2005, 11:32:54 PM »
My life has been consumed by law school BOO for the past few months.  I need to take a break or I will explode.

I am not going to log onto either LSD or LSN until Saturday.  *(Yeah, yeah, I know, only 4 days, big deal.)  However for someone who logs onto these sites upwards of five times a day and spends countless hours writing/reading.  I think I should start with baby steps.

I don't know how some of you do it.  You guys have great endurance.  I just need a break from wracking my brain everyday and lurking around my mailbox waiting for the mail man and checking my e-mail and making sure my phone has reception.  The waiting game for the results of law school applications is killer.  I'm not sure I can take law school if I can't deal with the stress of coming to a discussion board a few times a day just to read posts!  Oh, woe is me.

Obviously this is null and void if I get an acceptance that makes me creame myself.

As of now, farewell fellow LSD/LSN addicts.

My advice to you: take a break from all of this too!

I'm just curious about people's dreams.

I had a nightmare last night that I did not get into UCLA because something got messed up on my report, and they said, well it's too late to change it now, you're rejected!

I then got all sad.  I felt really bad that I didn't get in, and it wasn't even my fault!

Then I woke up, and went "oh *&^%, well I guess I'll have to go throught that again soon."

Thus, I'm wondering if anyone else has been really stressed out about law schools and is dreaming about them one way or the other.  hahaha alright, if you think this is silly, you don't have to answer.

as for me, dream interpretation is the only true science.

really cardozo?

i'm just afraid to hit up the ny schools because i didn't apply to nyu/columbia/cornell...which means that by going to either fordham/cardozo/hofstra/brooklyn will be cut throat competition to get into the top 5% so that i can compete against the other three.  scary thoughts.

I don't think that USC will break the T14 anytime soon (or maybe at all).

However I do believe that USC can overtake Vandy in a year or two.

The longer we wait, I also feel that USC is going to start edging UCLA out.  The funding just isn't there anymore and it will take its toll.  Thus, unless UCLA makes some good changes instead of staying very status quo, then USC may over take it also.  I mean, UCLA really has no room left to build any thing, so it can't "face-lift" it's law school or build new resources for its students.  At the same time it's struggling just to keep its undergraduate program from falling in the rankings.

I know I use the example of undergraduate climb/fall as an indicator of how its law school will do.  There might not even be a correlation among the two, however I do feel it is an indicator of what will occur due to the funding problems that the state is having with education.

Sure, UCLA can attract instate studens, but the fact remains, that USC is attracing in-state and out of state students.  AND USC is private = smaller clases/better facilities/etc offering more opportunities to its students than UCLA can.

UCLA does have a better location.  That is true.  But, that won't really hold up it's law school rankings.  Plus USC is trying to un-ghetto-ize itself, hence the Denny's!

entertainment law is intellectual property/corporate law.  if you want to get into the biz in a school that may not cater to this type of law, then definitely focus your studies on these two, and sometimes one areas of law.

obviously going to an entertainment hot spot: nyc/la/florida would give you a nice edge as you could intern/connect/etc with people in the industry because it is close enough.

however, other than say: columbia/nyu/usc/ucla (and self-proclaimed pepperdine) does anyone know of a school that even has an established (and hopefully good) entertainment law department/focus?   ???



i agree that upward/downward trends would make a difference in the choice of school i went too.

however i hope that all the rankings will do for me, is make me happier to go to the school that i already want to go too.  because, in all truth, the rankings this year did affect how i chose the schools i applied too, so the rankings next year, will also play a little role in picking which school i actually attend.

eh, and it seriously can't hurt if that school gave you a great big scholarship and then jumped into the first or second tier!

again, i will echo, "how do we find out past rankings?"



Thanks *EVOL*

Hello, are we forgetting USC?  This is place is going to rise!  It has an amazing alumni network and is stuffing tons of money into its programs.  Not to mention it's undergrad is also on the rise!

I think USC is really carving a name out for itself, not less than 5-10 years ago, everyone was like "USC, boo, it sucks" now it's like "whoa, USC is pretty amazing."

I would also like to see American rise into the top Tier, I think it really deserves it. 

As sad as I am to say this, I think Boalt, UCLA, UCD are all going to start dropping in the ranks.  The funding for these schools are just not where it's been in previous years.  And we know that unless they start to get more additional private donations, state funding and tuition won't cut it.  This is a constant trend that's been seen at all UCs so far, so I feel that it will also affect the law departments.

Is loyola (los angeles) really on the rise?
