Awesome! It looks like we will probably be classmates. My wife is staying home to work, so it looks like I will be making the drive by myself. If any non-creepy people in Northern California want to carpool down on Friday, let me know. Also, if any TLSers want to get together for some drinks on Fri or Sat night, we can set something up. I will be staying at the MGM, which is very close to the school.
I actually wrote this long report about my visit the other day, but I accidentally clicked it off and lost it
. I haven't decided whether to redo it. If anyone has questions about my opinion of the school, feel free to ask. As far as the financial crisis goes, things don't look terrible, but I'm still a little woried about it. They basically said that the law school is in a much better position than the rest of NSHE because it makes more money than any other program and relies on donors for most of its funding. The cirisis will affect the law school in the form of furloughs for faculty (already happening), but hopefully not much more. When I asked about tution increases, the answer went something like this: "We already made our big increase two years ago, which was a necessary step for any up and coming law school. We are hoping that there won't be any significant increases in the future, but obviously I can't guarantee that." They also said that the governor is now planning on larger tax increases to avoid major cuts to education. Sounds like BS to me, but take it for what its worth. As I already said, they are sending an email to update admitted students and I'm sure they will address the budget issue at the ASD.
Also, for those seeking residency, I have some good news for you. This is pretty much a direct quote: "We will generally give blanket residency to any 2/3Ls that apply for it."
