hard to predict seeing as they've only accepted 2 classes. If they aren't giving as much $$ this cycle your chances will likely be better. I'm gonna guess WL. That gpa is pretty low.

The first year was also a lot more competitive due to the lure of full rides for the whole class. I'm not saying that you'll get in with those numbers, but this year might not be as competitive.

There are currently two classes at UCI.

The second class, which had a 50% scholarship, had equally competitive numbers (3.38-3.79, 163-169), and the school says it will admit as few/many students necessary to maintain or increase those stats.

I'm curious why UCI hasn't released the medians for their 2nd class, in addition to the 25/75 numbers. The 25/75 LSAT range was -1 and +1, respectively, compared to the first class, which leads me to suspect that they took a few more splitters.

Very possible.

But when UCI released only median numbers for the first class, many people were suspicious and assumed the high end of LSAT scores was probably the same as the median. Perhaps UCI released 25th/75th numbers the second time around to make a point?

Accreditation

Under ABA rules, a law school may be considered for accreditation in its second year of operation. We will seek provisional accreditation from the American Bar Association in 2010-2011. As part of the application process, the ABA has scheduled a site visit to UC Irvine School of Law in October 2010.

A student at a provisionally approved law school and an individual who graduates while the school is provisionally approved are entitled to the same recognition given to students and graduates of fully approved law schools. After at least two years of provisional approval, a fully compliant school can be granted full accreditation. The Law School makes no representation to any applicant that it will be approved by the American Bar Association prior to the graduation of any matriculating student.
