I definitely want to keep public interest at the forefront of my goals, but i also don't want to be pigeon-holed or limited in any way in the future.

and as much as I hate to admit it, brand names do matter. a lot, apparently.


I think my biggest fear at this point is being a little fish in a big pond -- that's certainly how i felt during undergrad at UCLA. And loyola certainly feels like the friendliest pond right now .

That, and my fear of failure. failure with a $120,000 price tag!


Well, UCLA Law is smaller than UCLA. Plus, you can be the biggest fish if you let your light shine. ;)

If you go to UCLA law, you can eat the good food at LuValle! It will save you $$$ too. That shit is cheap! :D

congrats. hope to see you at orientation! :)

btw, i also went to ucla for undergrad and felt pretty anon. but law school is a lot smaller. i think being on a different schedule as the rest of the campus separates it even more.
