Though OCI was difficult, are people still getting jobs? I mean, though it isn't BigLaw, are students finding something in the meantime, or unemployed.
If you could do it over, would you choose Davis/Hastings ticket or a tier 2 with a large scholarship?
What are some good apartments for law students in the area, aka quiet apartments with not many problems?
Take the Tier 2 with the large scholarship (hope it is close to full). After the initial T25, rankings hardly matter at all. They are merely rearranging schools are factors other than the most important: "will i get a decent job?". I just cannot imagine that 120k of debt is worth the itty-bitty chance that Davis gives you over comparable T2 schools. Besides the fact that the UC system (with the possible exception of the flagship schools UCLA and Cal) is collapsing.
Davis at 35 has always been way over-ranked considering the fact that their employment statistics have always been rather poor. They are a second fiddle to a area fulled with law schools- Stanford, Hastings, Cal- all within 100 miles. Not sure if the festering toilet of McGeorge counts in this listing.
Now here, here's a guy who knows the score.
Duh, an aspiring 0L >>>>>> 1L and 3L.
Too lazy to look, but I bet he posts in the Law School Students forum a bunch saying, "I am not in law school yet, but I know more about this...."
