Not a US citizen, can not do that.

Who told you that? One does not need to be a citizen to claim a state as his place of residence, permanent or otherwise. For those living here legally, most of the time it's called "Permanent Resident." I don't know the intricacies of federal law, but I have to believe that if I can claim a country as a place of permanent residence, I can do the same for a state.

besides, I'm a permanent resident, and I paid in-state tuition at UCD undergrad for the past two years. :)

Cost is the same and want firm job.

Cost is far from the same. You're going to be spending about 60% as much to live a comparable lifestyle in Davis.


This is only true if you live in SF and not in the East Bay. I have 3 roommates and pay $425/mo in Scrublin.


lol if you aren't as close to school as you would be from Davis how is that in any way comparable? (I have one roommate and pay $500 [free utils] in Davis and I have a 5 minute bike ride to campus).

What I said was a non-hard science major (meaning you can't do patent bar) doesn't mean you can't have a career in IP, I was under the same naive impression until IP profs set me straight.

They said their Business degree means they couldnt do IP, I don't see how we agree at all. @_@a

Hastings has been as high as #23 and as low as #45. It makes no difference. The inside of the school hasn't changed much (of note is its new, more forgiving curve, however). It's a great school. That said, I would pick Davis.

No worries, I understand you now. I got lost in your syntax above. Does != mean 'does not equal' ? At any rate, it's good news for me too. I'd like to explore some of the issues of property, privacy, public rights swirling around the internet these days. It would be lame if my lack of patent eligibility killed that.

That may be so (and i should say, I'm not shilling for either side here), but the fact that the school hasn't changed inside in re: faculty, etc, is only part of the story. Rankings matter most (to me) in terms of how they affect how hiring attorneys view grads from that school. That may also not have changed, but I just want to make sure that both how Hastings performs unto itself, and how it is viewed by those who offer jobs has not changed significantly of late, and won't in years to come.

See, if Hastings makes me an offer off the WL, I will def. entertain the notion of taking that offer. But I want to know whether it has lost any luster in any way in the past two years or so.

I plan to call the career service office at both Hastings and Davis, to see what they have for students like me, maybe, that can help me decide,too.

Damn. Is it common for people to get pulled off the waitlist for Hastings but not for Davis? I'd really like to have the option of choosing between the two so I can end up with what may be the better of both worlds when it comes time to decide.

Did you get off the Hastings WL Zeth? If so, congrats, but I hope to see you get an offer from Davis.

Yeah. I'm happy after having waited for only, oh, 6 months total. I've only been to SF and Sacramento a handful of times and that was when I was a kid. I'd like to know what my options are ASAP. If Davis says no, so be it!

Word on the street is that everyone from Hastings graduates penniless, unloved and HIV-positive.

See what I did there?

I don't want to get involved in the dick measuring contest, but, can you cite some facts to back this up? I'm quite interested.

126 total employers, 109 of which are firms. So far no Davis person has been willing to share their firm count, but I've heard that top 10% is the norm and below 25% need not bother.
