So you're the one we can have go bug the admissions office when our status checkers are taking too long to change?

Sourrudedude, I'm curious as to why Yale isn't your #1, given your numbers.

First and foremost is location. I want to practice in CA, I would rather live in Palo Alto than New Haven, I love the west coast, etc. Also, I might want to do something with internet/tech.


Seriously... YLS isn't the best choice for everyone. Rankings whore.

lol sorry, I was under the impression that Yale had the best employment prospects of any school. Does Stanford really provide any significant advantages for working in CA aside from location? I also want to work in CA, but assumed that any of HYS would get me back here.

They will, but some SF and palo alto tech firms are pretty Stanford/boalt niche. And promixity to the market definitely has its advantages. Id take SLS over Yale to work in CA, but Yale ofer stanford for gov work, clerkships, and academia.

It's more type of employment. For example, Yale wins in academia and Supreme Court clerk placement; Stanford wins in Tech IP and JD-MBA careers.

California is hard to break into without ties - if you're from OoS, your option are pretty much Cal/Stanford (and to a lesser extent in LA, UCLA/USC).

Checking in.

Best school on the west coast, and only school worth going on the west coast, except UCI of course.

Interesting fact - in recent years (since 2007), Stanford has accepted all applicants from BYU with a 174+/3.9+ (7 of them).

This could be because most of them (and all of them whom I have met) went on an interesting mission - which provided the soft factor that SLS requires regardless of numbers...

Anyone wanna take a shot at explaining why Stanford waitlists so many people with high numbers?

Went to BYU but definitely don't have the 3.9+ Due to the GPA floor I am pretty sure that I have zero chance of getting in here but I would do anything for a T3 admit so here goes.

Also, done with PS, LoR, and Resume. Still working on DS and "Why X" statements.


Does this site have options besides BYU?? Can't seem to find any others

Checking in....

I have the GPA. Don't have an LSAT score yet but I'm not confident about a 170+ on the Oct. LSAT :(

Any suggestions on targeted SLS recs??

Stanford has told me that they like them. I personally ended up not submitting one, but a sample size of 1 is hardly representative.
