Politics and Law-Related News / Re: POTUS

101846...

Repeat after me.  To win the presidency of the united states one must win the most electoral votes;full stop.

Winning the popular vote means nothing.....nothing....becaus e, that will not win the presidency and it is stupid to think that hillarys 5 trillion or 50 trillion votes in California or New York shows serious ignorance....that logic alone touted by the Clinton "post election koolaide clean the white stains out of hiliarys diapers" shoes that its a good thing she IS out of political clout.

Get it? If you are a person who has said that Hillary winning the popular vote means anything at all you are precious and folks privately laugh at your puerile naivety.😉😄😄😄😄

Trump won the popular vote where it counted....like in Pennsylvania.


Huma will write a book to bring her boss back from the dead.
But huma was ordered to do it and is beating a dead horse.

Hillary is finished.. accept, regret, retreat, defeat. Hillary lost.

Winning Texas or California or new York means nothing

Didn't Mondale win the popular vote in one state????

Laughable.
Fun to mock

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Chapman law or USD law

By USD I think you mean San Diego, not Davis?

As between USD at close to sticker price and Chapman for free, I'd take Chapman in a heartbeat. Frankly, neither school can justify the obscene tuition they charge, so I'd go for the cheapest option. Your job prospects graduating from either school will be very similar, with an advantage to USD if you want to live in SD. I don't think many employers draw a big distinction between these schools, they operate on a fairly similar level. 

I'm surprised that if you had the numbers to get a full ride from Chapman, that you did not get a better offer from USD. Their admissions numbers are not too disparate.

Last note: be prepared to live and work in Southern California. I don't know where you are from, but these are not exactly the kinds of schools that will land you job interviews in NYC (or at big firms) based on pedigree. Not really a big deal, but something to be aware of.

Good catch- I must have immediately read that as UC-Davis (UCD), not USD, as you correctly note.

Agreed.

General Off-Topic Board / Whittier Law School Closing
« Last post by Maintain FL 350 on April 21, 2017, 10:04:17 AM »
It seems that the inevitable has happened, and an ABA law school is calling it quits.

I have been of the opinion for quite a while now that one of the Southern California T4s was going to go out of business, as the market is saturated. It is not surprising that it's Whittier, given their history of problems with the ABA and low bar pass rates. They tried various approaches, but it never seemed to gel. While other T4s (ULV and WS) managed to increase their pass rates, Whittier always struggled.

I would not be surprised if Thomas Jefferson followed.

Hello,

Just got accepted to both Chapman and USD law. Just wanted to hear everyone's thoughts on which school I should attend. While Chapman law is offering a full ride, USD is offering 5k a year.

Thanks,

Briefly-

UC Davis is a better school, with better employment prospects. BUT ... that's a lot of money to turn up. Review the terms and conditions of the free ride at Chapman; it is almost assuredly predicated on maintaining some type of class standing. Check to see what it is (minimum GPA, etc.) and review what the curve is at Chapman. Everyone assumes that X Gpa is easy because of undergrad, forgetting about the forced curve- law school GPAs are not the same.

Assuming the terms and conditions of the free ride are not too onerous, I would probably go with Chapman. The increase in quality of UC-Davis just isn't enough to pass up a free ride. IMO.

Incoming 1Ls / How to Use Study Aids in Law School

I hope you find this video on when and how to use study aids instructive, as most law students end up with lower grades because they don't know how to use them effectively.  https://youtu.be/pmnb_Em_0XA
