BC v UCI v ASU v Fordham

Postby aryi3025 » Wed Mar 08, 2017 9:34 pm

I'll try and keep this short while providing the necessary info.

Each school provided similar scholarships leading to tuition being pretty much equal for all of them.

Living in Irvine or Arizona will be cheaper than NY or Boston so in that respect COA for Irvine and Arizona will overall be cheaper. I also have family in Irvine and Arizona so there is a possibility i could live with them to lower my overall costs.

I want to do BigLaw and I would live and practice in any of these areas happily, but my ideal market is CA (or close to) bc i'm from the bay area.

I've seen the LST reports and it seems like Fordham or BC give me the best shot at BigLaw (even though i'd likely have to stay there, which is okay) but should I consider Irvine or ASU with their lower BigLaw numbers in order to practice closer to or in CA?

what should i do?

What are your actual COA numbers?

Unless they are close to $0, you should retake and reapply next cycle (this is only a bit of guesswork on my part, since you didn't include GPA/LSAT). If your only defined goal is biglaw, then you need to get yourself into a school that gives you a better chance at that career.

Keep in mind 95% of the clerkship numbers for UCI include people who already have biglaw offers.

Cross off ASU. That doesn't make sense at all.
