chill out lol

Where do Larry David avatars rank?

I definitely think philosopher tars and Gordon Gekko tars are worse, but Larry David consistently makes the list.

I had the impression that it would mainly be SF or Sac firms. So, did u know people from your year/class get gigs at firms in Orange County or San Diego? because settling down in OC or SD is my ideal scenario as I like it here, and my only family member in the country, my brother is also here. So I get that Davis is sorta like the middle of the pack law school in the state, like there is obviously Berkely, Stanford, UCLA and USC ranked higher, but in the scenario I dont accepted to those, and since I want to eventually settle down in OC or SD, would u say UCI and UCD are safe options if I get decent money from them?

I think there were like 4 firms from OC when I did OCI, so I don't want to give you the impression that the proverbial cup runneth over with options in Newport, but there is a bit. I had a couple screeners that never went anywhere, and my roommate (who also grew up in Norcal) had a callback that didn't turn into an offer IIRC. Ties were a big issue in all of the interviews, but if you grew up there you should be cool. I know a couple other people who are doing public sector gigs down in OC right now, so if you're not just stuck on firms you definitely have more options. Just kinda depends what your goals are.

It probably makes more sense to go to UCLA or SC unless you get a pretty decent scholarship, but if Davis gives you enough money to make it worthwhile, don't think that you'll be hosed when it comes to finding work in Orange County as long as you do reasonably well.


Thanks a lot man! you were really helpful! I appreciate it


Seriously? This is common TLS wisdom. T14 or strong regional with a large scholarship. This isn't unique advice.


sorry, for asking such a noob question, if thats what you meant.

Totally. Like its just an exploratory question seeking opinions. Then everyone starts snipping at each other. *shrug* oh well.


I know it's crazy that people might take these decisions seriously. I mean it's only the rest of your life on the line.

these are two entirely different things.
i'm talking about people and how amazing it is that an abundance of opinions can constitute expertise.
i'm not talking about the importance of a crucial professional decision.
i don't think anyone is questioning serious decision-making.

I think uc Davis or uc Hastings could be options if you have deep ties to CA and are comitted to going to law school here. They have their different strengths and I think it really depends on your future goals. Once you're admitted, check them out and ask HELLA questions. I bet you'll know which one is better for you. Neither of these schools offer a for sure future and they're HELLA expensive.

I would go to whatever school costs you less. Davis has a great reputation as a university in general.

But I did transfer out of the CA market b/c jobs were so bad.
