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).
kudos to you! Best of luck to you at Boyd!
