Haha that sounds like a great plan, bubblez. I think mine will involve a lot of Netflix and CA beaches. :mrgreen:
Nothing productive. I feel like I should feel bad.


Anyone considering taking a 1l prep course?

I was considering the BARBRI Law Preview class, but I did some research on it and it sounds like in the end it's not worth it unless you have absolutely zero understanding of the law and what to expect from law school. Which, if you're on TLS, is probably not the case. It sounds like it might be worth it if you can go for free, and USC does offer a scholarship for it, but personally I'm going read GTM and some other stuff and call it a day.

It's not unheard of for other schools; I'm not sure about USC.


Solicited or unsolicited? Can we only do it if we have higher offers?

It was at a different school, but unsolicited from someone who was attempting to negotiate: FWIW.

Negotiated a bump with little leverage. Worth it to try to negotiate again before the first deposit or best to place my first deposit and hope to gain leverage later in the cycle?

I have no feedback for you, but I just had to say you have my favorite username ever. I say that all the time and nobody ever knows WTF I'm talking about.

Fwiw, I had a lower offer at a second school that I was considering, yet I was able to get a bump from USC, but I also had a compelling argument to go to this second school. Try to distinguish your law school choices as much as possible.

Looking around TLS, it seems that GTM is definitely the way to go.

I tried reading GTM. Got to 50 pages, but couldn't finish the damn book. Will try again once my UG school is over, but no guarantees that I will finish it.

GTM: "forks in the road blah blah blah" zzzzzz

I thought I found an apartment, but the manager tells me I probably shouldn't live there because of safety concerns. :shock:

Back to the drawing board I guess. . .

If you look at mec's post history they are deleted which means Mec is likely matriculating somewhere. Otherwise he/she probably would have if not attending.
