Hey precise,

You seem pretty certain that you/me are in. How can you be so certain?

Just curious as to where u got this information...or are u merely making an assumption based on stats.


I'm not certain of anything.I know that numbers alone dont gurantee us acceptance, but based on the statistics it will be very out of the ordinary if we arent accepted. I also called the admissions office a couple of times to ask about my prospects of admission and both times, they've had this "dont worry about it, your numbers are very solid" attitude.

Hey guys,

A few questions...

For those of you on the southwestern waitlist, what were your numbers? Please share if possible; I just wanna know where I stand.

I checked the online app status today and it says that I am still being reviewed. My numbers are 3.5/159. I also have a Master of Arts degree..

Is there reason why I have not heard of anything yet? Do you guys think I will be on the WL or do you think I am on "hold"?


My application is still pending and my numbers really mirror yours (3.45,159). Assuming there are no flaws in your app, I say you are in. Check out

What do you all think:

Chapman with 12K or Southwestern?

This should probably be an easy call in favor of Southwestern, especially if you have BIGLAW aspirations, but I'm just not sure. Southwestern just didn't feel that good to me when I visited as opposed to Chapman which I really liked. I know you visited Chapman. Did you visit Southwestern?

No, its not an easy call in favor of Southwestern. I would probably pick Chapman with $$$. Southwestern is what it is, while Chapman is a school on the rise. I dont like Southwesterns attrition rate and although their employment numbers beat out Chapman for now, that gap should close a bit in the coming years. I also dont think the VERY small edge Southwestern has in placing its graduates in Big Law firms warrants an extra 12k a year.

actually our chief attorney graduated from Cooley. he makes at least 70,000 a year and he is only in his early 30's. rankings mean NOTHING!


Wait a minute.... She said that she would be perfectly happy going to the tier 3 school if it was just ranked a little higher.
Don't go to the tier 2 school just BECAUSE it is ranked a little higher. Ignore the ranking for a second, and look at the employment numbers, starting salaries, etc from the 3rd tier school. Do you like what you see?

Honestly, I love my girlfriend and feel that well get married someday... though nothing is guranteed.

If we both lived in Northern California, I would go to tier 3 USF over Tier 2 USD.

If we both lived in LA, I would go to Tier 3 Southwestern over Tier 2 UNLV.

Why? Because I know that I will be succesful graduating from any of those tier 3 schools plus be able to stay close to my SO. Its a win-win situation.

what are the two schools? And where do you want to practice law? Is there any scholarship $$$$ involved?

It is not stupid if you make your boyfriend ONE of the factors in choosing a school as long as he is not the ONLY factor.

Good stuff, AZ.

Were there any comments made my Pepperdine students/faculty about grading, attrition, student body competetiveness, and job prospects?

Did anybody attend this? I was going to go, but I've been sick the ast couple of days. Can somebody please fill me in on what I missed? THANKS!

many people from 4th tier schools do well. Just work hard over the next three years and you'll be fine.

If you still feel kind of shakey, just do what other people from 4tier schools and 3rd tier toilets do to make themselves feel better: make fun of
