Good question. I'll look into it tomorrow.


You're a godsend, slack_academic.

I'm such a big fan of 'SC that i honestly want it to pass them. I WOULD LOVE IT.


Also re: scholly negotiation....we can negotiate with them from now until May 1 then? I am very grateful for my offer but to realistically attend I'll need a bit more. Even with some of the graphs floating around of their unemployment, I really think SC is turning around.

Which graphs are you referring to? Law school transparency data from last year? Or is it more recent stuff?

What are people's thoughts on negotiating up the $120k? Do you think that's USC's absolute limit (except for the Rothman)? I love love love USC but another scholarship from the T14+lower cost of living elsewhere would make it idiotic for me to accept USC, even at the 120k.

I tried, but was unsuccessful. They did not mention anything about 120k being the limit though. You might as well try, worse they can say is no.

More recent stuff. Let me dig around and try to find it again.

ETA it was a TLS user-made graph comparing the unemployed/small firm jobs of t-20 schools.

Rayiner's "underemployment" chart.

This is for c/o 2011 though (data is almost a year old).

I do think that will be their limit and to be perfectly honest I think even if they let people negotiate up to a full ride the vast majority of those people will take a higher ranked school anyway at the end of the day.

But certainly worth a shot! Let us know how it goes.

I was pleasantly surprised to get $75k w/167 3.7, but is there a downside to trying to get a bit more? It's still an expensive school with that much coin. Problem is, peer schools have given me about the same. Do i have any leverage? Honestly USC is my top pick right now.

I don't see any downside in trying. They're not going to retract the offer.

USC might pass UCLA eventually if UCLA insists on having huge classes like they do but it won't happen in the next 3-4 years because USC's own class is about 20-30(2012,2013 class) people higher than usual which will hurt employment stats.

You get a separate email with scholarship information. Mine came a few days after my acceptance.
