bls is bye bye i think. cardozo's deposit is SOOoo much, i'm going hold out on that one until they come knocking.


USF isn't that bad. In fact, with your scholly there I'd say it was a better move than BLS or Cardozo. If not for your desire to move to NYC that is.

USF is solid in the Bay Area tho


Im curious what you two think... I decided that SF was the place for me. I decided against USF because of UCH's higher ranking and LEOP (I value the structured support program). I am recieving the UCH Grant thus far- $9,000. USF offered me $27,000 a year renewable. I feel good about the decision... But I am curious what two very thoughtful TLS folks would say. I am also curious, swheat, if you will be attending UCH in the fall. I know you are holding out deadatheist... good luck!


Thanks for the luck, i may really need it. i have to be honest, though I'm so close to USF, I've never actually trekked over there for a visit (sad lack of motivation on my part). but I honestly imagine it has to be much more attractive than Hastings (Hastings I love you, but I'll be the first to admit your "campus" isn't the fanciest), and in many ways a more traditional academic environment, with the ug campus nearby. and you can still BART to and fro USF (I know people who do) and enjoy all that sf has to offer, so it's really not a terrible alternative, and miles better than GGU. i know the school has some pretty great international law and human rights options, which appeal to me and my interests. however, i do feel like usf has an inferiority complex, especially among the students I've met, as though they wish they were somewhere else (and should i end up there if hastings won't have me and i pass up cardozo, i'd be a member to this party). to be honest though, I don't know why USF is so stingy with their money. nonrenewable 1st year scholarship like I received are almost an incentive for students to transfer out, you know? anyways, i view usf for me as a temporarily inexpensive way to attend law school without having to move, but i just don't have any burning or strong desire to spend 3 years there myself. but i would consider it. and really should learn more.

good to hear you're happy with your decision, i think most would agree with you!



Deadatheist- hmmm... I have a sneaking suspicion that it will not matter where you go to school- you're on your way!

Deposit deadline tomorrow... in a really weird way i've been waiting for this day.... it may be a catalyst for wl movement. even if it won't be me hearing back, hopefully someone here will hear good news soon.

I think all 3 of us (along with others who are lurking) are in the same boat.

Sent in my LOCI last week, tried to time it so it came in just as they started dipping into the waitlist so I'd be fresh on their minds. Probably won't matter, but hey, worth a try.

I can't believe I'm still waiting to hear from them! Complete since mid-January! A couple weeks ago they said I'd hear by the first week in May. Guess it will be coming soon. I bet they were waiting until the deposits came in. Sheesh. . .

I guess this is not abnormal for them. A friend of mine waited till late June I think last year's cycle.

Hi everyone,

I started a WL thread so we (mainly I) wouldn't keep clogging this one.

I just thought on behalf of all my fellow waitlistees here -and for all of you here waiting on other schools- I'd mention that as of now, word is our chances off the wl seem bleak.... I imagine this may be happening at other schools too, which is why wl movement may be so slow. Tough cycle.

Anyways since those of us on the wl are in for a long haul, help us keep our spirits up? Please let us know (if you're not for sure heading to Hastings) if and when you withdraw, should you be lucky enough to get in off the wl(s) of your choice! It would serioooously make my day, and some other people's on here as well.

thanks!!
