Just b/c of the rankings??? I'm curious if there are other reasons?

And are the rankings really that important???

i didnt say anything about rankings, i said somthing about narcotics. youll be dealing with less of the former and more of the later at usf.
i posted also under your other thread. my opinions stem from the reputation of uc schools being better. the fact that more firms higher out of uch than usf. theyre highering for the same geographic region so if youre from the better school then you have more of an edge. look at things like student teacher ratio, bar passage rate, employment after graduation, loan repayment programs for low income lawyers, clinical opportunities, the reputation of  various law reviews, the influence of law faculty in their professional practices before teaching, those types of things make hastings a better school. and while rankings may or may not matter depending on your career path, such a wide variance between uc hasints and usf in rankings indicate a wide variance between quality.

Ditto. Not to mention the fact that at $14K, Hastings boasts just about the best tuition value of any school out there.

Ambs,

Congratulations!  I am also on the Hastings waitlist, but have not received the e-mail or the call, hopefully soon.  You have quite a decision to make, good luck.  Check out the website below, UC Hastings tuition is going up!

Thanks Via, that's what I thought. Yeah, it went up quite a bit. And scholarship options are fewer at Hastings.

Good luck with the waitlist. It is moving, so there's hope!
