Best of luck all.
You withdrew from USC for UNLV?
Different strokes for different folks...
Although, I would have waited for financial aid info from USC, especially considering his UNLV scholly has a top 1/3 requirement.
I was thinking about doing just that, Sauer Grapes, but I realized that even if USC gave me a full ride (highly unlikely), I'd probably end up going to Boyd anyway. It's mostly a matter of being interested in a very specialized portion of generally untaught law (Gaming law) and the networking opportunities available if I stay in the town I want to practice in.
USC is a great school, and for any of the usual career paths (a less specialized area of law, west coast biglaw, whatever) it certainly would have made more sense. I've just realized I fall into a very specialized niche, within a very particular market, and USC doesn't cover that very specialized field particularly well. That's no failing on USC's part, no one else does either (except Boyd).
