UC Davis is Outrageous

Postby chicagoburger » Wed Mar 01, 2017 5:35 pm

1. Keep sending emails to tell me to fill out Financial Aid info before admission decision

2. In the email, there is a special instruction for undocumented students to get in-state tuition, really?!

They're most likely just trying to remind you to fill out your financial aid stuff before some deadlines. Don't flip out about it yo.

It's the only school that does this.
For #2, I feel sorry for those Californian taxpayers.

As a tax-paying Californian, your ignorance is quite concerning. For most undocumented students, their parents' incomes are so low that they most likely won't have to pay taxes anyways even if they were legal. And by not claiming the other benefits available to low-income legal residents, one could argue that undocumented students pose a lower cost to the state.

Also, undocumented students do pay payroll taxes if they have jobs. They aren't simply living off the state and not paying anything in as some seem to believe.

Clearly, this should be your top priority in the law school admissions process. Don't listen to people when they say retake or to consider other options. ONLY consider whether the school's financial aid conflicts with your Trumpian values.

To be fair, this isn't NEARLY as outrageous as Illinois's admissions policies.

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=274687&p=9822617#p9822617

I can't believe the school would prefer higher LSATs to lower ones. How dare they.

Literally don't know why someone who has these views would apply to school in California, one of the most liberal states (actually, probably THE most liberal state) in the US.

OP is also complained that John Marshall Law seems to be unfriendly when he/she attended admitted students day and complained that people should stop telling people to retake. As someone who complains about the most trivial of things, clearly law school/lawyering is going to be a cakewalk for OP.

I believe a "Chicago burger" is more a reference to the process in which it's made. During the cooking of the beek patty it's common practice to continually say "Da Bears" and presto you have a finely cooked Chicago burger.

Good point. I didn't know UC Davis would force their political view in the admission process.

Take some time off. And stop making so many threads.
