So no money offer came with the mail? Has this been everyone's experience?

Did you get into UCLA yet Slansky?

EDIT: I see according to LSN that you have not. Fear not, you will eventually. With numbers above both their 75ths, you're a virtual lock. Also, I really hope you didn't pay to apply to Southwestern, California Western, Loyola LA or Pepperdine.

Congrats to my fellow acceptancees (that even a word? :) ) can't wait to tear open that USC letter once I get home! YAY!

I've been doing some research on USC and law schools in general, and this article's looking good: According to law.com, USC ranked 14/20 among the schools most recruited by NLJ250's: 47.6% of the class last year were hired into a big firm http://www.law.com/jsp/nlj/PubArticleNL ... hbxlogin=1. Personally I'm interested in international law, but it's nice to know I'm already accepted at a school where I could easily go a different route if I chose to. Interestingly, USC seems to be doing slightly better than UCLA :lol:

P.S: sorry if the link has been posted before but I figure it can't hurt to post it again

If you want to practice law in Southern California, a USC JD is your ticket almost anywhere.

Does anyone know if there's money info in the later packet?

Nothing from UCLA yet. For a couple weeks I was jumping out of my socks every time the phone rang, and yelling at each poor person who wasn't UCLA for tying up the line. Now I am in this kind of bleak resignation stage where I assume I just won't ever hear from them. :shock:

Lol, I actually paid for most of my schools because I applied before a lot of their waivers came out. I got refunds from UCLA and Pepperdine, but USC never sent me a waiver (I think because I'd already applied by the time they looked) and Southwestern, CWSL, and TJSL are smaller schools which might not even do waivers. I don't really mind, though :lol:

PS: I hope this post works, because every time I click "Preview" it takes me back to a blank reply form. :|

Big game tonight for USC, and perhaps more so for the Pac 10 as a whole. Obviously neither the Trojans — nor their fans — wanted to be in the Emerald Bowl, but they need a win vs. an underrated BC team to salvage some respect for their conference which has, thus far, looked pitiful in games against Mtn. West opponents. I hate to say I'm rooting for USC, but... Fight On!

Not a great first half for the Trojans. Let's pick it up USC. The Pac-10 needs this big time.

Yeah, they're going to win this game but not in the dominant fashion they could have. Assuming Oregon beats the Luckeyes in the Rose Bowl, that's 2-2 for the Pac-10. Means UCLA, Stanford and Arizona have to go 2-1 for us to have a winning record in bowl season. Not sure how I like those odds with Luck out and UCLA being utter garbage.

I think that Stanford will still beat Oklahoma. It'll be up to Arizona.

The problem for us (Stanford) is that without Luck we have no passing attack and, more importantly, no threat of a passing attack, meaning the Sooners can stack 8 in the box to stop Toby and just cover our receivers one-on-one. Tavita is a mobile quarterback, but against a fast defense, he could be in trouble especially since he can't throw and hasn't started since last year.

I dunno, I think we COULD win, but I wouldn't bet on it. I think Arizona will win and UCLA will lose, so it may be up to us - especially since we're the last Pac 10 team to play (aside from Oregon, which I am assuming will slaughter Ohio State).

A little bitter PK? Not a great win tonight, but a win nonetheless. And looking at USC's cupcake nonconference next year, they'll be back.

Though I guess it wasn't the nonconference that bit the Trojans this year...

Is there a status update between "complete" and "decision rendered?"
