Cool, yeah I think I'll like DC, just a big change and I'm pretty happy where I am so the idea of moving to the other side of the country is pretty daunting, but either way I am outta here.

Am I going to have to seperate you boys?

But seriously guys let's tone down the full ride envy, I didn't get it, you didn't get it, get over it.  You don't see us bashing those saps who are trying to choose between Harvard and Yale do you?  Although I would like to...

Again, you don't know if i got it or not, or hell what schools i've gotten into or not.  So this is hardly envy. Rather, I'd like to call it, feminine hygiene product-bashing

Whatever, you obviously have a chip on your shoulder.  Lighten up.

Yeah I knew someone who flunked out despite killing herself.  She had good grades I believe undergrad and bad LSAT.  They wouldn't give her a second chance or anything despite the fact she improved significantly second semester.  I think its a combination of they prey on people who shouldn't be in law school and will flunk out while getting some tuition in the process and I think they are very bad at what they do and don't support their students, I would look into another carear rather than go there.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: In at Loyola L.A.

Yeah but they tell you where to go and it still has to be ok'ed by the school.  It sucks, I've never done the whole loans thing before, gotta talk to Dad, 150K in debt just ain't doable.

Hey I went to the accepted student's day and I have to admit I was pretty impressed, despite having taken the red eye the night before and being pretty out of it.  It had its boring bits like all things like this, but what I really paid attention was what the students had actually done and I have to say they'd done everything.  The clinical program sounded really interesting and really varied.  There was lots of opportunity to work with professors and get paid for it.  Lots of international sudy abroad programs.  Lots of opportunity to work on the hill.  Four journals and they told you how you got on them.  Tons and tons of student organzations.  I guess when I went I just saw a lot of things I could see myself doing and for once I finally got some specifics, I felt like they really fielded some tough questions too.  The student's also raved about the school (I know they are supposed to) but compared to the other school's I visited I actually beleived them.  They do have a strong PI program, but to be honest they seemed to have anything and everything you could want and lots of students were doing the traditional law route, which is what I would be doing most likely, however I wouldn't mind participating in some PI things in school.  Let me know if you have any questions, the thing was from 9 to 6, they covered everything you could possibly imagine.

haha damn, you do realize that a full ride doesn't generally include living exspenses right?  (I am right, right?) So most people will need some sort of loan.  And you would do better to get federal loans first as those would probably come close to covering your living exspenses, I assume you still qualify, but you may not with the full ride.  Nonetheless you are I'm sure you qualified for private loans, Loyola will send you something eventually I'm sure.  I don't beleive there are any looming deadlines.

I guess I don't have huge concerns about the area, so much as I really like California.  I know it is close to the South so I don't know how that will be, but I'm not that worried about it.  I guess I just really like CA people are more friendly and its a lot more laid back.  Ahh don't tell me about not dating in law school I'm trying to convince myself I will have some sort of social life in law school.  I am definitely leaving towards American, it's just hard to leave all teh sun behind.  I'm living in Santa Barbara at teh moment and when I got back the other day from teh east coast it was just perfect and I was like I don't want to leave this!
