Davis

ETA: Did you tell USD about the matching offer from UCD? They should be willing to negotiate.

If COA is about the same, Davis.
Davis wrote:56.4% of graduates were known to be employed in long-term, full-time legal jobs. This figure includes no school-funded jobs.

USD wrote:46.9% of graduates were known to be employed in long-term, full-time legal jobs. This figure includes an unknown number school-funded jobs.


Assuming your USD scholly has a top 50%, you are way better off below median at Davis.

Aren't a good percentage of the jobs at Davis school-funded? Additionally, you have to know that Davis is experiences 10% jumps in tuition year after year.

Hey PAB's :)
I am running out of time and need some thoughtful advice. USD is offering in $30's/yr and UCD $27k/yr, with the stipulation to maintain good grades, where USD package is only need-based without consideration of grades.
I live in LA and would like to practice in LA after graduation. Not looking to work for a big law firm. I need some REAL suggestions here.

The difference in scholarships is nowhere near big enough to consider USD. You should go to Davis.

Everyone I know who has acceptances at both places, they choose Davis.
