That's hilarious. I think its plausible. What will it take to get UCLA up the #14 spot though?
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.
jay, have you chosen a place to live yet? if so, where and why?
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.
