Irvine $$$ vs UCLA $

Postby UCLA1LHopeful » Sun May 02, 2010 12:26 pm

If you want to practice strictly in Southern California, and you get a full ride at Irvine and 10k at UCLA. You also don't care too much for biglaw jobs. What say you?

What kind of employment do I see myself wanting after graduation?

If it is something I will be reasonably assured of getting from UCI, I go to UCI. If it is something I can't get from UCI but can get from UCLA, and will also allow me to pay off UCLA debt, I go to UCLA.

If it is neither of the above, I don't go to law school.

Congrats on the fullride! I am biased - I go to UCI because I am going there and withdrew my UCLA app without getting a response from them. But that's a personal choice to me. I can see going either way. But there is a lot to be said for no debt.

A guaranteed full ride can really ease the mind, and I have a feeling the second class out of UCI will still be in great shape job-wise for pretty much anything. I'm similarly biased, but I'd go UCI.
