What have I wrought!!! I didn't mean to open Pandora's box with the waitlist stuff!!!
Anyways, onwards to below:
Received my waitlist letter recently. You can PM me for my stats if you really care.
I also noticed some contradictions about some people being admitted and no people being admitted. I'm an optimist and hope people including myself do get admitted, however do the rest of you guys think maybe you were "sold" or possibly misled about what they've told you at ASW? I mean they definitely would like you to attend their school since they admitted you... Just a thought. Whatever, it really shouldn't matter too much to those who were admitted and told this info about the waitlist anyway.
I personally didn't feel misled. I was very informed about the school prior to going to ASW...
I'm very gullible and easily influenced. The indoctrination process succeeded
. Also, it is true that UCI Law needs to sell you on their law school since it is new. HOWEVER, I have been to other law schools' events, and those law schools really stretch the truth more so than UCI Law does. To me, the "truth stretching" at UCI Law is nothing compared to other law schools. In fact, I believe that UCI Law is being honest WHILE STILL BEING AMBITIOUS... WHICH IS AN EXCELLENT THING!!! The last thing I want in a law school is for them not to try hard for you. Lastly, Dean Chem specifically said to us that it is unrealistic for UCI Law to be in the top 10 (for the time being that is
), but top 20 is doable. Whether UCI Law can enter in the T14 law schools will be interesting (which should be down the line). Realistically, I think UCI Law may end up in 19-26 when it debuts, but I hope for better
.Anyways, I have three main reasons for UCI Law:
1. Everyone that I met so far has been beyond nice. Heck, everyone I met at UCI Law just gave me their phone numbers without me asking for them... There is definitely a sense of togetherness at UCI Law... I LOVE IT!!!
2. For UCI Law to succeed, UCI Law needs YOU to succeed!!! They will try everything in their power to make you successful. At other top tier law schools, the law school does not need you to succeed to stay top tier... (I have more to this but not enough time to type it all)
3. I visited enough events at UCI law and UCI campus... I fell in love! Also, I earnestly believe that UCI can accomplish everything that it sets off to do. Ultimately, I have faith in UCI Law: "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1)
