Wow. A couple of hundred? 

I guess more importantly, do they have a "preferred wait list" and a "normal waitlist" or some sort of ranking system (I know they said "they don't have a number system, but c'mon)?

The usnews and the schools website looks promising with all the different placement/internships available but then you have to factor in how many students are going to apply for them. I also thing that the competition in LA would be pretty tough with all the law schools there? not to sure though?

The following is a link with bar passage and employment statistics. It's a pretty solid number for those employed after 9 months.
