I actually have heard of a few people doing this and a few doing it in reverse, it's not that crazy. Good luck!

Haha kind of reminds me of Kanye West's "School Spirit" skits.

Do you plan to go by Dr. Lawyer or Doctor, Esq.?


+1 for the Yeezy reference, but I am also curious about your future title. Did you know you could put that stuff on your credit cards??

UCLA did the same thing. Maybe a California thing?


All UC schools and law schools are on similar tuition amounts / raises. If they raise for one school, they raise for the whole system.

Re the credit cards- yes. But, that is a poor choice and not a wise investment. Re my title- just good ol' "Kimberly" will do for me.

Can't you ask them to hold your application until the second score comes out?

Haha I'm guessing jfish was referring to having the "Dr." and "Esq." titles on credit cards. Otherwise...yeah, having 500k on your credit cards probably won't be to your advantage.

LOL! Hilarious... I totally missed that! I actually do have MD on one of my cc and I think it was a mistake... waiters seem to expect bigger tips... And, I definitely think there is some type of financial discrimination going on, in general, when people know you are a doctor or a lawyer... heaven forbid they know you are both... they think the salaries are cumulative. Even my colleagues who know i am going to LS think that somehow means I will be making MORE than my physician salary now! HAHAHAHA! What a joke!

I sent 3, none were targeted. Didn't lengthen or tailor PS (2 pages exactly) or write a Why Berkeley and I got in via email a few days ago. I have no connections to CA and made no indication (other than sending an application) that I wanted to move from the East Coast to CA--I think the black box hype is a little exaggerated. Anyway, send a 3rd if you have one ready it certainly won't hurt, but I doubt it will be the difference between a yes and a no.

Good luck! :)
