Notre Dame (25k) vs. Cornell vs. USC

Postby lawschool?s » Tue Feb 07, 2012 4:05 am

So I just got accepted today to Notre Dame with 25k per year with good academic standing which is way better than I expected.

Having all my family on the west coast (Washington and California) and having lived here my whole life, I would like to end up in the West Coast eventually. I am not a gunner, having done decent in undergrad was mainly due to my math background and I don't actually expect to be in the top half of my class since writing essays is not my strong point, and I would like biglaw but don't expect it at all.

My deal is what is best for ending up back in the west coast, job employment (for non-top half), and anything else you can think of.

I have not heard back yet from USC or Cornell, so this is hypothetical and I would probably try leveraging money but at sticker what do you guys think?

Also, for ND what does good academic standing mean? Pass classes? 2.0?

Stats: 3.62 (Public Ivy) and 167 LSAT (only time)

Keep in mind I am only 19, so this is all still pretty surreal and I don't need to rush back to the west coast. I would be fine where ever, but it is definately my perferable region.

I assume I will get into USC and Cornell I don't know. TLS is so hardcore on hypothetical situations. I just need to find out if 25k at ND is worth it.

Is your sole LSAT score 162 or 167 ? Your posting history shows that you claim both scores although you only took the LSAT once.

To answer your question: Yes, $25,000 at Notre Dame with only an academic good standing stipulation is worth it.

I never got a 162, but thats where I was practicing at and having watched TLS before I knew everyone would be like hypothetical doesn't count so I just said I got a 162 to get advice on where I should attend. TLS ruins people haha.

What does "good academic standing" mean? Does it mean just don't fail out or do I have to maintain some sort of GPA?

I should give me a call or shoot them an email, but I figure someone on here knows.

Yep. OP, why can't you just wait to hear back and then make a thread?
