YES Speakerdave, I can count on you to give me advice. Well, here goes. 3.28 (3.22 at time of apps)/ 165 poli sci major from UCLA
IN: USD, McGeorge (w/ money, withdrawn), Cal Western ($, withdrawn), Whittier (Withdrawn, $), ASU, UNLV (w/ $), Chapman (withdrawn), Temple ($)
Pending: Loyola (not really counting on it, cause idiot me applied two weeks ago!), Santa Clara, Thomas Jefferson (wouldn't go), Minnesota, U San Francisco
Anyways, I guess the desire to wait would be so I can apply to the higher rung of Cali Schools (UC Hastings and Davis). That highest rung (Boalt, Stanford, USC, UCLA) I have no shot at, but I might have a shot at the other UCs, who knows. The other school I'd hope for is Loyola, by applying early. But otherwise, the good Cali school is USD, and I got in there. So maybe it would be a bit risky to apply next year, cause UC Davis an d Hastings would be iffy with my numbers.
I am just frustrated cause USD didn't give me any money, and I was really hoping they would! People with my numbers have gotten good money from Loyola, but this late in the game I doubt I'll get anything, much less an acceptance. Thus I am quite frustrated.
