From what I have heard, the UCs are the best schools in Cali. Hands down. (stanford aside) UCLA is allegedly the hegemon of the south california legal market, while berkeley and stanford triumph in the north.

Wtf? Cal-tech? Harvey Mudd? Claremont McKenna? Do those names mean nothing to you? Californians only respect 2 of the UCs, not all of them.

UCLA full-tuition is TCR. (It pains me to say it since I hate LA.)

lolz The kids who get into Cal-tech are far too smart for law...let's hope Cal-Tech never degrades itself by offering the JD as a degree.

But for reals, Cal-tech is harder to get into than Stanford and a billion times harder to get into than Berkeley. It's the MIT of the West.

MIT? UIUC, and Texas don't seem to have any patent law edge cause their engineering programs are baller.

FWIW I was being sarcastic because the scope of the conversation shifted to non-law schools.

Enjoy Berkeley with 25k/year


I read the same thing. It's in this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=25&t=111317

The post specifically said: Students admitted to Berkeley Law that have also received a scholarship offer from one of the 12 law schools listed below can apply for a Berkeley Law Matching Scholarship.

Columbia University
Cornell University
Duke University
Georgetown University
Harvard University
New York University
Stanford University
University of Chicago
University of Michigan
University of Pennsylvania
University of Virginia
Yale University

I don't know the specifics, but according to this you should be able to get at least $25K from Boalt


I guess they really know who their competitors are huh.

I heard it's because Northwestern gives away too much money. NU gives out a ton of half-rides, IIRC.

Also, be forewarned that Boalt doesn't automatically match most scholarships. As far as I can tell, the purpose of the program is to give Berkeley a way to prevent only the most desirable candidates from going elsewhere on account of money offers Berkeley would be willing to match. From what I heard from my classmates and from other TLSers last year, most of the people who get scholarships at other T14s will not get a matching offer at Berkeley. But if you get into HYSC and also get an offer at a peer school, you might luck out.
