The Law School, which first opened for classes in fall 2000 and received ABA provisional accreditation in August 2002, has been granted full accreditation in the shortest time frame possible."

Apparently the shortest time frame is 5 years....

Provisional is enough to do anything a fully accredited school can do. All it means is that it's new/temporary until full can be granted. You still take the regular bar and can practice like anyone else.


Not true. It depends on each intuition/business. For example UC Berkeley does not accept transfer students from provisionally approved law schools.

Oh, good point. I was just considering going to UCI and graduating from that institution. Although, if I was to choose UCI, I wouldn't go with the mind set to transfer. You're better off going to an established school that isn't looking to have students build up the program.

Yea one should not ever go to law school hoping to transfer anyways. Someone earlier said that government jobs, such as the military requires law schools to be ABA approved. I wonder if provisional counts.

also i see your old avatar is back! welcome back

As for jobs, I think as long as you plan on practicing in socal, even a provisional accreditation from Irvine should be ok. It may not compete with UCLA/Berkeley graduates, but it won't instantly take you out of the running. There are some good firms willing to interview Irvine students/graduates (I even see government listings :shock: ) I don't think we should be worried about job prospects upon graduation (minus the economy factor) just because Irvine won't be fully accredited yet.

Not being able to transfer does suck, though, for people who may not be sure if they want to stay at Irvine.

I'm wondering on the outlook for Big Law though. Hopefully at least a few OC/LA based big law firms will interview.

Look at the website. The firms doing interviews in 2010 are listed. There are quite a few.

Also, no UCI student has to take the baby bar or any additional testing beyond those exams given in class by their professors (and eventually the bar exam, of course). UCI will be provisionally accredited before the first class graduates and all graduating students will be eligible to take the bar exam in any state(s) of their choosing.

Are they handing out lots of money this year? I sure hope so, as resident tuition by 2011-2012 will be 43,000 dollars a year (putting cost of attendance around 75k). Out of state is some ungodly 55k+ amount.

At least 50% of tuition to all admits this year.

Here's why - UCI doesn't have an app fee. They just have the processing fee. It only costs $12. Way worth it.

congrats! looking at your LSN profile, you seem to have been accepted pretty much everywhere you applied! Lucky you.

What made you apply for Irvine? the 50% scholarship? I ask because everywhere else you applied are T14's pretty much.

Really? They didn't go higher than 50%? That's a smidgen disappointing. Your numbers are above both medians from last year.

Congrats on the acceptance! When did you put your application in?

i think i applied in mid-october.

i applied to UCI because of the scholarship potential and I wanted to have a backup school in CA if nothing worked out. and...it was free.
