I'm already settled, but it would be nice to not have this hanging in the wind.


Patiently waiting here. Would be nice to know something in the near future though. It has been very quiet lately

I just got in off the waitlist. Dean Schwartz said they wanted to make a decision on my financial aid package tomorrow. Other than needsaccess and the fafsa is there any other forms that I need to send in? I should of asked when I got the call but was not thinking clearly. Thanks.

fafsa and needaccess is all you should need.

I got in off the wait list! I'm a JD/MBA applicant and so far only in at the law school but very happy! Good luck to everyone still waiting and looking forward to meeting future classmates!

Thank you! Yes, I will be attending. I won't share my exact numbers, but I'm a high GPA, low LSAT splitter.

I got in off the waitlist earlier this month. 3.9/165, UCLA undergrad. I didn't get any merit-grants :( but I got a need-based one that was comparable to the merit/need grant I got from Cornell. Hope that helps, and good luck!

I think UCLA is really digging in it's heels to become known as the #1 critical race studies law school in the country, haha.

That's hilarious. I think its plausible. What will it take to get UCLA up the #14 spot though?

Left my phone at home and had a voice message from Dean Schwartz waiting for me. He asked me to call back. Does this mean what I hope it does?

In all honesty, I think Texas has a better chance than UCLA. UCLA needs money to jump up into the T14, and Cali is cutting state funding to state institutions whereas Texas is funneling a shitton of oil money into the UTexas system. Although with the oil spill crisis, I suppose all us UCLA students can only hope haha.

Brentwood because Westwood is A) expensive, B) full of undergrads, and C) a little college bubble, which I don't want to live in.

Also, people who live in Weyburn still have to take the UCLA shuttle (or bike/walk a decent way uphill) to get to the law school, so I figure adding 10 minutes to the bus ride to the law school doesn't outweigh the hundreds of dollars I save on rent a month. Weyburn is between $1000-1500/month, and everything in Brentwood is between $700-900/month.

About as old as the debate: would you like to get shot running through the ghettos of LA getting to class at USC, or go to UCLA and live 15 minutes away near from the Santa Monica boardwalk?
