I cannot imagine you not getting money with your numbers.

I am at the 25% on both GPA and LSAT. I have heard that I probably will not hear back until the end of the cycle. Anyone know if this is true?

My status checker just changed, today I think, to say that a decision was made. I'm basically at 75th for LSAT and GPA, so should be an in, hoping for money. I applied for their public interest scholarship-- anybody know details about that? It wasn't too clear on their website, but thought it couldn't hurt to send in the essay. I'd like to work in LA and am committed to PI, so I think Loyola could be a great fit.

Me too... though your numbers sound better than mine. Curious to find out about that public interest scholarship.

Got the packet today-- in with the public interest scholarship, $87,000 (must be in top 30%) + $500/year for books and supplies. Excited! Not thrilled with the pressure to stay near the top, but still feel very honored. Unless I receive one of the full-ride PI schollys I applied for elsewhere, this is a top contender.

Best of luck to everyone else-- hope people receive some good news today!

I highly doubt it, I'm pretty sure they attach that stipulation to all scholarships. Plus they may take it as you saying you're not sure if you could stay in the top 30.

This is awesome - congrats! I was thinking of the PI route, too, but am not dead set on PI so I decided against it. $500 stipend for books is great as well.

they hand out enough scholarships to people with very high numbers as well as people with more reasonable numbers, that I have a feeling they won't remove stipulations, since enough people will likely accept with the stipulations.

Does the Loyola social network remind anyone of the early, infant days of Facebook?

Loyola seems to be near Venice. I am not familiar with LA. I lived in socal for 2 years but dont know my way around very well. Is the school commutable from the Venice beach area?

How good is public transportation? Is there any?

The UG is near Venice, not the law school. The law school is downtown LA/Ktown area. It's definitely commutable but it's like a 20-45 minute drive depending on traffic.

Public transportation is...shitty, but doable. There are buses. If you have a car bring it, it'll be much easier than relying on public transportation here.

Any idea about that metro that LA is planning on building between downtown (closer to USC) and santa monica ish? I saw online that it should be completed "summer 2011" but I doubt that...

Lol considering I live here and I haven't heard that it's not looking good..

I'll let you know if I come across more info about it.
