Thoughts on Final Options? Please & Thank you

25 k per year at USC (75 k total scholly)
Full tuition at UCI
No stips (other than Good academic standing)
COL covered at both. Only responsible for tuition. Thus, around 90-100k debt at USC & Debt free at UCI

Reserve at Cornell
WL at Virginia & Michigan
Held at Northwestern & columbia

Ideally, I'd go into PD/DA, community legal aid, or immigration law. However, if I go to USC, I'd prob end up aiming for big law to pay off loans. I'd prefer to work in CA (prefer NorCal but would be happy with SoCal).

Also, how does stanford send its final decision (email, snail mail, status checker). I've been complete since 12/7. Only school I have yet to receive. I've been waiting for my ding.

Would you mind sharing your stats? Did you take the LSAT more than once?

Thanks for the responses. Just got my grades back. Is a .01 increase in gpa worth submitting a new transcript to lsac or should I just wait until I graduate to send the official transcript.

Not worth sending, it won't have any effect on your outcomes. Just hold off until you get an official transcript after graduation
