Re: Top 35 to UCLA/USC?

I am ranked in the top ~7% and want to practice in CA. My goal is biglaw.

USC/UCLA's employment numbers do not blow me out of the water and I'm wondering if I would do better staying at my school.

Anyone have thoughts? Anyone have experience with OCI as a transfer?



1. Is your current school U.C. Davis?
2. If not Davis, what state is your current school in?
3. Do you have CA ties?

Pertains to main question:

1. Want to practice in Bay Area or LA?
2. Law Review at either school(s)?

Tangential questions:

3. Scholly at Davis? If so, how much?
4. Scholly at UCLA/USC? If so, how much?

I will likely receive a very small scholarship from Davis. Maybe I can use the USC/UCLA acceptance as leverage.

I will check with USC/UCLA.

If things stay the same, the schools will cost almost the same because I can "likely" live for free or close to it in LA because my family lives there.


Generally, on TLS, people are going to tell you to go to UCLA/USC. Given that the schools will cost about the same, and you want to practice in LA, it seems like going to UCLA/USC would be a better choice for you.

Check out this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=121166&start=0

Someone in a similar boat as you.

Does anyone have any input from a transferring stand point?

Do I need to make this into a poll? :D
