Which CA school should I attend?

Postby BruinsFan » Mon Jan 25, 2010 12:28 am

I know it's early in the cycle and I'm still waiting to hear from a few schools, but it might really come down to these.

Thanks!

I know Miami isn't in CA, but it's the best school I've been admitted too thus far. So, I figured I'd include it.

Out of those choices, I chose the one where you have money. SC isn't so much higher than McGeorge that you should go there for sticker over a $12K scholarship, and the other two aren't even considerations if you want to work in CA after graduation.

That's kinda what I was thinking. Although Sac-town doesn't thrill me. Do you think I would have a shot at negotiating any more $$ from SCU?

Then why did you apply if you got such a sweet deal and you still wouldn't consider it?

i dunno, fee waiver, the local law school in my city, maybe some leverage for scholarship down the line.

I'm still waiting on/hoping for Pepperdine, Loyola, USD, and USF. Pepperdine, Loyola, or USD would make the decision very very easy.

Obviously.

My parents have a friend who went to Harvard Law. He asked me what schools I was applying to and then asked me why I wasn't applying to Harvard. Dur.

It's ok Managamy. We know to you Stanford is T2 and Cal is TTT... when you are as successful as you switching to normal person mode takes a few moments I'm sure...

Never looked at managamy's LSN before. Must be crazy smart. And I'm rather proud of my 3.92 gpa.

Miami's offer is tempting. Best school I've been accepted too AND they have serious job opps in the south florida market.


Thanks for everyone's opinions!
