Extra Curricular Information

I didn't really do much outside school. I love music (guitar), skiing, and biking. I have always held a job since I started college. Pretty much, my free time is devoted to my friends/family.

I am super stoked about going to law school. The applicants are so diverse in their backgrounds and experiences and I think that will make the next three years kick ass. It will be very different than my undergrad years as an engineer. I've been out of school for a couple years, but my job has been relatively rigorous so I think I will be used the hyped law school workload I hear so much about. I am a workaholic and slightly masochistic, hence, the going to law school chapter of my life.

I was born and raised in the US but my parents are Indian. I didn't really play the race card in my applications because I honestly don't think ill contribute to a schools diversity (expect for being a statistic)

I am a big time nerd. I love physics (relativity, uncertainty principle) and I love anthropology (biological evolution). My favorite book is probably The 3rd Chimpanzee.

Good luck too all of you in pursuing your passions.

Additional info & updates

2008- update

Its been about a year since I checked my lawschoolnumbers profile. I am a 1L now at SCU and I love it here. I figure I'll give the SCU pitch, now that I am much more experienced in the law school game.

SCU is in the heart of Silicon Valley so there is a huge drive for law in the tech sector. A science/engineering background makes life easy but it is not necessary to get involved in the industry (ex, there are lots of jobs doing transactional or corporate work for tech companies like sun, cisco, intel, google that don't require tech backgrounds). SCU has one of the highest median starting salaries and its because of the drive from these tech companies.

I also found out that Santa Clara country pays their DA/PDs much higher than the median (for those ppl interested in criminal law) Lots of SCU profs have connections with the criminal judges.

Overall, the profs and the student make the school an incredible learning environment. Law school is obviously competitive, but the friendly atmosphere at SCU mitigates the cut throat effect of grade curves. I'm not sure about other schools but there are tons of networking events and a lot of them have open bars. Its always fun getting buzzed and then chatting with local attorneys.

When it comes to summer internships and jobs, some of my classmates are finding it a little difficult lining up paid internships for the 1L summer. I was able to get a sweet in house deal at a big company which pays around 40$/hr for this summer. 2L summer is a completely different story but I hear that many SCU students get good offers their 2L summer.

One more bit of advice- don't underestimate the importance of the school's location. Law school ranking is a useful tool from a high level perspective but it doesn't strongly reflect the schools local geographic reputation. Blindly following rankings may lead you to a less than ideal situation.

Goodluck in what ever decision you make and make sure you talk to students from the school you want to go to before you make your decision.

5/29 Received the SCU admissions packet in the mail.

5/24 I think I got into santa clara. I am getting emails from the financial aid dept congradulating me but I haven't seen any letter of admissions yet. May be it is in my mail box. So my cycle finally ended. Now it is down to a very tough decision between seattle and santa clara.

5/22 I withdrew from UOP. It is a good school but geography is playing an important factor in my decision.

5/10 I am really leaning towards seattle or santa clara (if I get in). I will probably withdraw from UOP soon. I am considering UOP if I decide to work while going to school but I doubt that it will pan out. When will I hear from SCU??!!

The campus is really nice too. I liked everything about it on my visit. The people in the admissions office were really cool too. If you end up @ McGeorge, it is a great place to be.

are you holding out for american too? im also waitlisted.

lots of options

I can't believe you didn't get into L&C - you are their ideal student! Did you hear via snail or email? Had they updated you recently on your deferral status prior to the rejection? Well, it sounds like it wasn't one of your top choices, and you have alot of fantastic waitlist possibilites (esp American) and I'm sure at least one will come through. Your score increase/dedication to the LSAT is testament enough! SCU would be nice but don't lose hope on some of the others!
