West Coast Splitter....where to?
« on: December 30, 2005, 05:00:52 PM »
I'm a true splitter...2.88/170.  I have a few excuses for the GPA (Computer Engineering major at UCLA, married with a daughter), but it's still a 2.88 in the end.  I'm looking to get into Intellectual Property Law (to become a patent attorney).  I'm from Southern California and would like to stay in the area...preferably Southern California or Utah.  However, I'd consider anywhere if I got into a T14.  My number one choice is probably BYU, where I have about a 50/50 shot.  I'll also definitely be applying to USD (where I should be gauranteed in) and Santa Clara (where I should get in, and they have a good IP program).

Looking for suggestions for other schools...looking for top schools that place a heavy emphasis on LSAT, or lower schools on the west coast with good IP programs.

Thanks in advance.

Yeah...I'm not really gonna apply at many T14s...as of right now I'd say Northwestern is the only one I'll definitely apply to.  And no, I haven't applied to any schools yet.

Heh...I'm married, if that's what you're referring to, but yes San Diego is a dang nice place to live.  Loyola is definitely a consideration...I hadn't thought about it much before, but will definitely look into it.  Not so sure I want to spend another three years of my life in LA traffic tho ???  I don't think I wanna go to UCLA for another three years (already been here five)...although I guess I'd consider it or USC...I just don't think I'd get into either, considering my GPA...would UCLA give me any type of priority since I went here for undergrad?
