I asked a similar question on another thread (without answer yet) but maybe someone reading here can give an opinion.Say I am top 60% (being conservative here), would I get the best firm job from Davis or Hastings... or even sanata clara?
in the apps, did you write which schools you were applying to? if yes, my guess is the non-boalt UC schools saw the competition, saw your stats, and figured you'd be accepted at boalt and you'd likely (and understandably) reject THEM if they offered you admission. call me miss conspiracy.
Just to screw with commonly-held beliefs regarding admission to the 4 UC's:I got into Boalt, got dinged at Davis and UCLA and got waitlisted at Hastings. Surprisingly enough, when I came to Boalt, I learned that many of my classmates had the same experience.
