on all your acceptances. Wow, UoP scholarships are wonderful--take it!! While your lsat is a little higher than mine, I still have yet to hear from many schools, several of which are the same as those you applied to. Good reflections on the schools for visitation; I'm heading out to tour USD, CalW, Chapman, and SW'ern and Loyola first week of March. Feel free to contact, Best Wishes!
Our numbers are very similar. I'm still waiting on Loyola and USD... if I get into either... I'm there. Right now, I'm up in the air between Pepperdine (well over 6 figures of debt if I go)... or go to University of Nevada Las Vegas with at $8900 scholarship. All three years will cost me just over $20K. But having read your little passage on Pepperdine, I'm seriously considering it.
I was at the Scholars event at McGeorge this past Friday as well. My brother actually attends McGeorge as a 2nd year and hes enjoying himself there. The general feel I got from the school was very good - the faculty seem to be very genuine and student-focused and I'm sure you will receive a fantastic education there. My only concern w/ McGeorge is that it seems that you're limited to the regional area of Sacramento. Alot of the students were telling me that McGeorge is Sacramento's law school and a majority stay in the area to utilize the school's locla network of judges etc. In their own words, leaving the region to Los Angeles or San Diego, your degree will carry less weight than it would in Sacramento. Similarly, Santa Clara (from what I heard from McGeorge students) generally exports students to the Silicone Valley - if you look at their employment statistics you'll notice that almost 20% of the students go to Tech-Corporations rather than Law firms... and thus resulting in a higher average salary than most McGeorge and Pepperdine. But again, the issue is do you see yourself practicing in that region? I assume Pepperdine has a similar stigma of being regional... and having to compete with USC, UCLA, Loyola and the Creme de la Creme of Southwestern... its definitely going to be more competitive. AHHH... this is soo frustrating... why can't we all just go to Stanford???
I was in Group A touring It was alot of fun... I particularly enjoyed the class audit for Property Law... interesting stuff. THe brownies were good... fajitas... eh... But definitely worth the trip... lets just hope they send our travel reimbursements soon to pay for our school deposits
I still havent heard from pepperdine. I see we both have applied to loyola and hastings. Something tells me that we wont hear from hastings for several more weeks. This waiting game is crazy.
hey, thanks for posting your school visiting experience! So have you decided on where you wanna go? I just turned in my deposit to SC today, but I'm still considering Pepperdine, especially after reading your description. I went to UCSB for undergrad, so I LOVE the ocean, and would love to live by it again.
Yeah, Hastings does take forever. Though I would assume that you'll be hearing soon. I applied a couple weeks later than you and just heard back...and I applied thru the LEOP option, which I would assume takes longer. And yes, good guess! NTM does stand for Next Top Model. That's me. You may have seen me in the Calvin Klein underwear ads. Hmmm ok maybe not. NTM are my initials:) What school are you leaning toward right now?
Did you apply to full-time only?
When did Loyola waitlist you?
Yeah, right now, it looks like I'll be at USD. Again, we'll see about Hastings. Cheers
I just got accepted to the evening program at San Diego. I think I have a pretty good chance of getting the evening program at Loyola too, but still not sure. I'd say im at about 70% chance of going to Pepperdine. But if I get fulltime at Loyola, I'm there
Howdy... Accepted to magnificent Pepperdine and you're heading to McGeorge eh?? Scholarships help the decision a long a bit, I reckon. Are you getting mail about this UoP rafting trip that they're putting together? That sounded pretty cool...no one else in law school that I know has gone on a rafting trip as part of 'orientation'. Maybe I can dig up some extra funds... Good luck, and good choice.
Contrags on Pepperdine! I would love to go there and I'm encouraged by the fact that you got in b/c my numbers are similar. Did you know that Ken Starr is the Dean there? I think that's awesome b/c Clinton was a prick:)
