Additional info & updates

wow- i forgot about this site. I guess I might as well update it...some of my #s were "distorted" b/c people told me that law schools trolled these sites. Anyway- its all corrected now

USC- 20k per year for all 3 years
UT- 9k per year for all 3 years (increased after I sent the UCLA offer); 3k per year in need based grants...12k total per year
UCLA- 25k per year, renewable if i maintain a 2.5
Baylor- full tuition, i think i had to be top half to keep the scholarship
Boalt- no money, but I withdrew a long time ago; either way, I doubt I would have recieved any $ from them- I thought it was a miracle to be admitted.
Hastings- I was admitted, then promptly withdrew

...on your acceptances. I am curious as to your reasons for withdrawing from Boalt. On LSD you had "location, environment". Any chance you could go into more detail?

I was concerned about Berkeley from the start. I went to a rather conservative undergraduate school. I have no problem with diverse viewpoints but I have heard some very strange stories come out of Berkeley. Also- I really prefer SoCal, especially the LA area. After my UCLA acceptance came in, I decided that I would not attend Boalt even if I got in, it is just not a good fit for me- so I withdrew my application.

USC is a better school for you if you're conservative. Also, youll get awesome football tickets.

texas!

UT
Wednesday, June 29 2005 at 08:00 PM

is in a different league than who? UCLA? Why do you say that. I consider UT, UCLA, and USC relatively equal (US News cant decide who is "better" between UCLA and UT)

no contest, UCLA

UCLA, enough said, unless if you're conservative.................. UCLA= BLEEDING LIBERALS

Not Bleeding Liberal
Wednesday, June 29 2005 at 08:00 PM

but not bleeding conservative either. I think UCLA and UT are not that far apart in that aspect. Austin is much more "liberal" than the rest of the state. My undergrad was very conservative and, although I did not agree with the conservative viewpoints, they did not bother me. I think it will be the same way at UCLA and UT (although I decided against Berkeley for the political viewpoints reason).

in addition...

ratio between liberal and conservative professors at ucla is approximately 8:2

Wednesday, June 29 2005 at 08:00 PM

do you think that is true at most law schools?

Help me out....
Sunday, September 25 2005 at 08:00 PM

I'm a little confused. I was under the impression that Berkeley was quite liberal and that you are a moderate conservative who didn't want to be around a lot of hard-core liberals. Based on what you're saying, the exact opposite is the case? Asking for my own knowledge....

not a wash
Sunday, January 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

I don't think UT and UCLA are a wash...I think UT is the better school. USNews has them both at 15, but USNews is not well respected in the profession or by academia, and in peer eval rankings (law faculty ranking fellow law schools) UT is #11, while UCLA is #16. And Leiter's FQR has UT #9 and UCLA #15. I'd take UT if I were you, unless you really want to pay more money and live in LA....

FWIW

I think you did yourself a bit of disservice by dismissing Boalt . Seemed like it was due to ridiculous hearsay. It's a tremendous school Anyway, If it's about UCLA or UT, I believe it's as simple as deciding where you want to be. You will be at a MAJOR advantage going to the school located where you will be working/practicing. And the advantage of a UCLA degree in a CA market is the same as the advantage of a UT degree in a TX market.

it wasnt so much about the school itself as it was about location

UT/UCLA Debate
Wednesday, September 07 2005 at 08:00 PM

Just wondering if you have decided anything concrete as deposit time approaches. I believe both UT and UCLA are great schools and you couldn't go wrong choosing either one. Though, having lived in both Austin and Southern California I would have to say Southern California is def a better place to live :-)....Best of Luck on whatever you decide

UCLA

I'm interested to know what you hear from them about possibly matching your USC offer. Be sure to post the result on LSD.

scholarship offers
Sunday, October 02 2005 at 08:00 PM

Did you write them a letter telling them what UT & USC offered you, or did you send them a copy of the original offer letters? I'm looking to do the same thing.

I hope a big earthquake hits as soon as you move to SoCal, sucking Westwood into the ocean. I also hope the earthquake is localized on your apartment complex, and you are the only person in it at the time...
