Need to make a first deposit soon - no awesome options yet

Postby Larsey » Thu Mar 15, 2012 10:18 pm

Hello all,

I'm still waiting to hear back from several schools, but time is running out to make a first deposit as the schools I'm currently in. Here's my list of schools I applied to and results so far: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/Larsey/jd (also below)

I'd really like to graduate from a top 20 school, but so far that would mean getting off a waitlist or transferring. Interested in international law, and want to work in LA or Bay Area eventually.

Right now I'm thinking Hastings is my current top choice, depending on $$$ but I just got $39k at San Diego offered. I know the ranking isn't super far off, but I get the impression that Hastings may be a substantially more valuable education.

(I would really like to be in LA area for school, 2nd choice Bay Area, 3rd CA in general--it's hard to imaging going to the east coast unless it was for UVA.)

ALSO: I just got an aid letter from Loyola and there were only loans listed on there. Do they offer merit aid way late or should I double check with the Fin Aid office on what's up?

Any thoughts you have on this initial deposit situation are appreciated. Thanks!
