O young Snoboard, so much to warn you about, yet I cannot. This school is filled with "assholes" "wrenches" ERRNs Ogres and Charlies. that is going to be your peers

PUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA  :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

well, i don't know that much about tj...the only thing i've seen there is their library and...well...it's pretty bad...BUT, fortunately, you probably won't need the library too much...plus, if you REALLY need something in the library they don't have, usd is VERY close by and our library's not bad

job prospects here are not bad, but it's certainly not as good as if you go to harvard or something...people towards the top can usually find some sort of work and the rest of us can usually network ourselves into work...that said, if you're not sure if you really want to go to law school (and i get the impression that you're not THAT sure yet)...take the job, make sure you know what you want to do first...i wouldn't recommend law school in general unless you're pretty sure you want to do it and that's something working for a few years should help you figure out...oh, and it helps that your other option is a good job offer  :P

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Sports Law?

i took sports law this semester and will say that tom terrific is correct...it's an intersection of a bunch of different areas of law...so if it's really what you want to do, i think you would do well to not just consider the school's "sports law" program but their other related programs as well (like tom said, labor and antitrust (both big components of sports law), intellectual prop (not as big based on my class), etc...)

Numbers aren't that great.  I'm going part-time.  Go part-time people!  I'm pretty sure (sort of sure) that they allow anyone that asks to transfer to day/full-time after year one.

this is true...in fact, it's pretty easy to go ft even if they let you into the pt program...i think the requirement is that you ask before the spots get filled up...quite a few people asked to transfer to ft at orientation and got a quick ok...the only time i've heard of someone being turned down (and this is hearsay) was the person who asked after all the spots were full

this is how it's going to break down...with all 3 schools your basic advantage in all 3 is going to be the market the school it's in because (obviously) there are more alums in the area and there will be more networking opportunities for you since you'll be there for 3 years...so, if u want sd go sd, if u want la go pepperdine...both those schools will, imo, have an advantage over minn in their respective markets...if you're trying to go to the bay or some part of cali that's not la or sd, i don't think any of these 3 schools will make that big of a diff...you'll have to work harder to network your way into the market...as important as 0Ls think rank is (don't get me wrong, it is...but not because of the rank but because of the reputation that usually keeps a school where it is) if you don't get a job through oci (the advantage minn may have) you'll have just as hard a time breaking into the bay as a usd or pep alum will...and do NOT "EXPECT" to get a job through oci...your odds are better if more firms recruit there obviously, but it's like transferring...don't expect it and don't do it if you aren't willing to a) work in the market the school is in for a few years or b) shoot out A LOT of unsolicited applications and/or network your ass off...if you aren't too gung ho about these 2 things and you don't manage to get a job through oci which will move you into the market you want to be in...you're in for a nasty surprise

as i mentioned...rank is based on reputation and a market won't have a reputation for alums from any one school unless there are alums to establish that rep...as far as i can remember, the only attorney i've ever met who's had ANY association with minn in sd is a professor of mine and that's only because he taught there...so my guess/assumption is that there aren't THAT many minn alums around caliornia (at least not more than pep or usd)...i admit, this assumption could be TOTALLY wrong, but i think it's probably a fair one...

18
if you want to be in cali, don't go to minn...as far as usd and pepperdine goes, do you want to be in la or sd? if money doesn't factor in, that's really the only question you should have between the 2 schools

I applied in early November and FINALLY got accepted last Friday.  I'm 95% sure this is where I'll be in the fall so it was worth the wait, but I know where you are coming from.

In a sort of related topic I still haven't heard from Santa Clara, but it is not an issue anymore.

These two schools are taking their sweet time but I think things should start rolling now that deposits are due.

My acceptance was dated 3/24 and my deposit is due 4/8.  Anyone going to the Admitted Students Day on the 14th?

Go Dodgers.

i'll be there on the 14th but as one of the student volunteers (tour guide, sitting at a table during lunch if people have questions)

alright, i'll weigh in...finals are rollin around so i'll need another form of procrastination (again)...for those wondering, i'm a 2l

not having a car...i have a friend who didn't have a car until i think around april of our first year...he lived on campus...inconvenient? sure...impossible to live with? not at all...his roommates had cars (actually, of the 4 guys there, 2 didn't have cars) so he went grocery shopping with his roommates when they went or we would take him to the market once in a while...driving to school was obviously not an issue since he lived on campus..if you don't live on (or near) campus, it may be an issue...it might not be, i know there's a bus stop right outside campus but i don't know the bus route
