BYU Grads: Where are you going?
« on: June 11, 2005, 11:12:54 AM »
I'm going to UCLA. I heard there were about 20 BYU grads/LDS there, which seems kind of small. Where are the rest of you headed?

I'm headed to UPenn.  That is unless I get some unexpected waitlist love.  20 at UCLA sounds like a lot to me.  Last year BYU sent 0 students to Penn Law so I'm not anticipating having any BYU get-togethers in Philly.  Any other honor-code abiding supercougs care to pipe in and share your fate?

UVA there are a fair number of BYU alumni there.  I met probably about 15 on a visit and 26 were accepted this year up from 19 the year before. I am pretty happy about it I have already met a few of them that are going there with me this fall and I have communicated with others online.

My understanding was that there were 20 total at UCLA last year, and that many have now graduated. I expected more because of the sizeable LDS population in LA. UVa, on the other hand, seems to be a popular destination for BYU grads---lower cost of living, family friendly, relatively conservative. Those factors might explain why Penn attracts fewer BYU alumni, but 0 for last year, that surprises me.

If you are still in Provo you can get a list of how many alumni went to every different law school from the pre law advisement center.  Yeah I agree that there are a lot of reasons byu grads go to UVA those are a few of the reasons why I am going there.  I think there is also a strong LDS community there in Charlottesville that seems very friendly and open.  The administration seems LDS friendly as well there.
