In @ Santa Clara
« on: April 01, 2005, 02:37:05 PM »
Just got the letter today. My mom called me to let me know so I don't know what's in it yet. My numbers are to the left and my lsn page has all the relevant info. I am very happy because I credit Santa Clara as the reason I studied so hard for the LSAT's. Saddened by their drop in the rankings but I am still seriously considering the school.

Love,
Q

Hey Starresky,

Congrats on Santa Clara, it's a good school, no matter what U.S. News and World Report has to say about it!

I agree. And for IP, you can't beat its location :) Which is what I am interested in.

it's well regarded in the valley - if the Bay Area is where you want to end up you should go for it.

Yeah, I have family in both the north and south in California, so I like that it is in-state for me. It's just a question of financial cost in comparison to USD and Loyola at the moment. :)

Congrats dude...I attended Santa Clara Law for 1 year back in 98-99. Hope and pray you don't get Steinman for Crim Law, but if you do, prepare to study like you've never studied in your life. Its a great school though and all the professors (Steinman included) are fantastic.

I was also accepted today.
I would guess this would be their final round of acceptances.

I heard from students there that they are generous w/the money ... but then people who went to admitted students day heard otherwise.
