Acceptances / For those of you waiting for SOUTHWESTERN...
« on: May 06, 2005, 04:25:05 PM »
I got my acceptance letter today. Any questions, let me know.

Looks like i'll be at FIU next year if the waitlists/holds dont come out in my favor  ::), but my plan is to transfer out after my first year.  Does anyone know if there is a problem with transferring from a provisionally accredited school? 

You are settling for less. If you dont want to go to FIU, dont go to FIU. reapply next year, retake the lsat and go to a school you'll actually be happy graduating from.

Depends on how much weight they put on the GPA of applicants, my GPA isnt that great though I got mostly A's in my majors of Poli Sci an Philosophy.

Thanks for the information.

for the record, man... i think pepperdine has you in the "this guy is probably in but we just jumped 20 spots in the rankings so more people might turn in seat deposits than we anticipate and we better hold off on giving this guy an acceptance letter just yet" pile.

I see it as a positive you havent heard yet actually. most people borderline candidates have gotten their waitlist offers..... pepperdine obviously thinks better of you.

word.. graduate housing isnt an option for me. I'm gonna try to find a roomie in the santa monica area.

golf, i've talked to several students and they all say that the graduate programs arent nearly as conservative as undergrad. thoughts? I'm prepared for the culture shock tho.... i know pepperdine is a total change from my undergrad (long beach state).

anybody need a roomie? pm me

Are any of you set with your living arrangements? I'm finding that its ridiculously hard to find affordable housing  ???

Well, if whittier had a 0percent attrition rate, then i probably wouldnt overplay the bar passage rate.

But the forced curve weeds out the weak students. Since 30 percent of their students get weeded out, the bar passage rate is weak no matter how you look at it. This is clearly a quality of education issue.

Come on, a whittier 1L is as likely to get kicked out of whittier as he is to pass the bar. that is sad.

^ LOL :D

I'd like to point out that Whittier's bar passage rate is like 30%. So if 100 people enroll, 30 will be victims of the attrition rate (and thats assuming is 30% attrition for all 3 years... though its probably higher). Of the 70 left, 30% will pass the bar. That means 21 people out of the originall hundred "beating the odds".

See, from what I've heard, most would take Southwestern over Chapman.  Anyone else way in on this?

Probably should. Maybe will if it comes down to that. I just feel a lot better about Chapman than Southwestern after visiting both.

I would pick Chapman as well.... Non-competetive student body, super low attrition, good quality of life, etc. Southwest grads have a higher median salary though.

Has anyone heard from Pepperdine?

I applied there just prior to the deadline on March 1st, having taken my LSAT in FEB. I am curious to know whether or not they send out their accepted/rejected letters all at the same time.

LSAT=163
GPA=3.39 NYU CAS.

Thank you.

I applied right on the March 1st deadline and was accepted about 3 weeks later. I have a 3.45/159 w/ your basic run of the mill Extracurricular stuff. It seems like a coin-flip situation this year for people with our numbers. I do know that many of the people that applied close to the deadline have recieved their decisions so its kind of strange that you havent heard yet.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: My interesting situation

What is wrong with taking it in June and applying in october if I do well?

Nada, I just think you'd benefit from the extra few months of preperation. good luck
