So after posting last week about being concerned after having my cr status 1 in mid January, I finally got a nudge to cr2 today! Here's hoping for good news. You guys must be good luck!

USC is my top choice. Should I send a LOCI now or another letter of rec??

:roll:


No, you should retake the LSAT if you want to give yourself a fighting chance. I would retake in June and apply early in September. Retake again in October if you don't hit 167+



I can't retake. I have taken the LSAT three times within 2 years.

There have been multiple applicants offered $120,000. I'm not sure if that's their highest initial offer or not. The Rothman Scholarship (invite-only application) is a full-ride and a guaranteed fellowship, which has not been awarded yet.

Keep us <166's posted on how things end up! Losing hope, but had a pretty good cycle, so I'm content.

I've been sitting on 2nd update of 2nd committee read for two weeks.
Probably straight to the waitlist for me.

A URM with a 173 LSAT 3.35 GPA is 100% in at USC. I don't know what can keep you out.

Now that I'm in first read, should I email them some music recommendations for reviewing my application? And would Wagner be too aggressive?

Definitely not Wagner. Try Shostakovich No. 9.

As a music major, I LOVE where this thread is going.

I would second the Shostakovich, but replace 9 with 5. If that doesn't work, maybe some Cage to bring out my "special snowflakiness"

Already covered that angle. My essay is about having transitioned from the art world to the legal profession.

You guys really don't think the Tannhauser Overture would get me in?

Would going to USC with absolutely no ties be a pretty risky move?

Not knowing anybody in California/not having a concrete reason for why I would want to work in LA.

My acceptance came by e-mail, I think some said they hadn't received e-mails and were expecting snail-mail decisions.
GOOD LUCK!

getting to know people and developing ties is a big part of law school, especially at a school with an alumni network like usc's. los angeles is a nice market in the sense that it's not new york or san francisco, but there are still a lot of opportunities with nlj firms. in my opinion, it's a nice in between and will hopefully facilitate a transition to a small market after a few years of biglaw.

Very good point. Wish the cost of living wasn't so high there...even with a good scholly, I am going to have to take on a lot of debt if I go to USC.
