Seems to me that faculty is dropping like flies (is Ortiz even there anymore?) and the scholarship is no longer competitive with T30 (maybe they don't have to be?). I'm advising a close friend on whether she should choose a Irvine over a T20 that offered her $. I'm thinking no, but she wants to work in Cali eventually and didn't get into USC or UCLA. Does anyone have an idea how their 2Ls did? How'd their 1Ls do? I'm looking for som rational evaluation here, so uci kids, please don't jump down my throat.
UCI's faculty and administration are not dropping in the slightest. In fact, they're getting better.
Ms. Ortiz is no longer the dean of admissions, but she still comes by frequently (I believe she's teaching Spanish for Lawyers). The new dean of admissions is hugely qualified, having has served as the Dean of Admissions at Penn Law and Columbia Business School.
In terms of faculty, UCI just hired Yale Law's director of clinical studies.
I don't know enough about jobs to comment on that. What I do know I've already posted a number of times in other threads.
