I attended Law Day on Saturday and was very impressed. Answers to Amante's Q's:
1. The Dean of Admissions Adam Barrett (who looks exactly like Bob Sagat by the way) said that the academic attrition rate ends up being about 9-10% each year. He didn't mention the total attrition rate (including people leaving for non-academic reasons.) He also didn't specify what gpa you need in order to stay in school, but I assume it has to be above 2.3, which is what you need to graduate (you can get up to a 4.3.) My small group leader made it sound like you need to be a real @#!*-up to get kicked out though. Plus, if you do poorly the first semester, you get placed in a class aimed at helping students that are struggling.
2. A few students mentioned that to stay in the top 1/3 of the class you will probably need a 3.0-3.1 gpa, but that it varies each year. If you do well, not only do you keep your scholarship, but they will award you more money. They take the left-over money from students who can't keep their scholarships and distribute it to the students who are doing really well.
Adam also stressed that McGeorge is aimed at producing practice-ready lawyers instead of focusing on legal theory (like at Davis and others) which I really liked. I was pretty much set on McGeorge before I went to law day, but I really enjoyed everything about the school and am happy to be attending this fall.
