Thanks for the correction on Seattle U's tuition. If it helps any, I spoke with my sister's friend this weekend, who is a Seattle U grad. She transferred from Lewis & Clark to Seattle U as a 3L, because she felt like the students at L&C were so competitive that they were trying to sabotage one another. She said that she loved Seattle U and felt that it was a friendlier atmosphere with a more community feel to it. PacNW weather might be a bit hard to take for someone from SoCal, so it should be a consideration. If you plan on practicing in SoCal you might do better going to a CA law school. It will most likely better prepare you for that by teaching CA state law, preparing you for the excruciatingly hard CA bar, and giving you a good network of alums in the area. Just my two cents though. I definitely like Seattle U's philosophy and approach to legal education, plus Seattle is a great city, but that's coming from someone who grew up in the NW. Best of luck to you with whatever decision you make!
Did you apply to full-time only?
I sitll don't understand what these admision committees are looking at. For whatever reason, mostly I have friends in Sacramento, I would dopoit UoP now, but I don't have that option. I an glad you were able to make a decision and I think it's a good one. Johnny Cochran went to Santa Clara for whatever that's worth. I heard through the grapevine that Pepperdine will be sending out a pile of admits at the end of this week or early next week. I'm not sure what I'll do if I get in there. I am not quite that conservative. Bottom line, I hope we both end up at Loyola. Jason
i see we have similar numbers and are both waitlisted at loyola? are you following through? if so then how? i want to but dont know if its worth the effort
congrats! i just got my loyola pt acceptance today also.
I see we've applied to many of the same schools. I just got a bit carried away since I most likely will stay in California. I absolutely agree with listing Southwestern as high as you did. My brother is finishing the first year evening and talking to him, you'd think he's already a lawyer. He's getting a great education. This whole application decision process makes little sense. I'm surprised seeing your acceptances that I haven't heard from Santa Clara or UOP. Go figure that I was accepted to USF. I am in a quandry as to what to do. I have already left the deposit at Southwestern. Did you? USF is due in about 10 days as is Miami. I am finding it hard to let Miami go when it's the only ranked school I'm in to. If UOP came through I'd leave a deposit there as well. Bottom line, we both want Loyola and I hope to see you there. Only George Mason might pull me away. Lot's of luck to you.
