"According to the Recorder’s count, 30 students have jobs with nonprofits, 17 with judges, and the rest in law firms and prosecutors’ offices. The school is still unaccredited, but it’s enjoying a “honeymoon” period, according to Charles Cannon, the law school's assistant dean of development and external affairs."
I guess the question is, will this honeymoon period extend to next summer's (slightly bigger) crop of 1Ls as well?
I'm waiting to hear the results of 2L OCI this fall to decide whether turning down UC Irvine last year was a mistake.
Where did you end up going to school if you don't mind my asking?
The University of Washington, and I actually ended up deferring and will be starting this fall.
I was only half serious with the above statement, I'm pretty sure I'll be happy with my decision regardless of how well that first UCI class does. I want to end up in the NW, my friends and family are mostly up here, in-state tuition at UW isn't bad, and it would have been tough for my wife's career if we had moved to Irvine. Also, I doubt UCI would have let me defer, which ended up being pretty necessary, while keeping the full scholarship.
