Yes you just can't double deposit. After a certain time they will know if you did.

Yeah. It's not a deposit. It's just a way to weed out uninterested people since they have a late deposit deadline.

Interesting fact from my visit. The career services lady was trying to push more people to leave California. She says ihey are a national school but most students want to live or stay in California.

Do you guys know if there is a schedule for Law Day? Also, is anyone going to the Diversity Reception on Thursday? I didn't RSVP to it because I wasn't sure if it was was all admitted students. (If it IS something that most admitted students are attending, do you know what time it starts?)

Chuckes! UCLA said the same exact thing to me. At admitted students day I must have heard that sentiment at least five times from current students/alumni/admin/faculty each. They must struggle a lot with the perception that these SoCal degrees aren't remotely portable.

I figured most will be near there. I'm staying closer to the airport so I'm just a little worried about transportation and such. More specifically properly estimating the amount of time it's gonna take to get to USC.

I would try to allot more time and then opt for Uber Pool or Lyft Line to save money!

Applied first week of January, In Review for more than a month. It was and remains a top choice for me. I had talked at length with a student ambassador before applying and felt wonderful about applying. LSAT above 75th and evaluated superior. Anyone else waiting for so long? Any acceptances sent out in the last few weeks? Do you think it makes sense to send out an LOCI or anything of that sort? Am running out of patience. Help!

Yup I see that lol. Now they may be recruiting people with roots elsewhere or something to boost the chance. At my tour only three people were from CA.

This will be so much fun. I hung out with futurellewoods today. We had a couple of drinks and explored Pepperdine school. Her Mom is so awesome.
