UC Davis: How do you like it?

Post by goldenhiccups » Wed Feb 12, 2020 9:27 pm

Hello! My cycle is mostly over and in my opinion, the best school I’ve gotten so far is UC Davis. (Also admitted at USF, UC Hastings, Northeastern, waitlisted at Boston U). I want to practice in California, I had my ambitions set on going to LA because I love SoCal and did undergrad at UCLA. At first I was against Davis overall, since I live 30 minutes away and was quite set on living in a bigger city. But I took the time to visit today and speak to some current students, and it’s slowly swaying me.

Are there any current Davis students or Davis alumni that are willing to share their experiences? Any insight is greatly appreciated!

I'm sure plenty of Davis alumni will have differing opinions about how much they "liked" school (something that has very little to do with the school).

The better question is whether Davis is the right fit for you. What will it cost you? And what are your career goals?

I think it would probably come down to price and the type of legal career you want. I was accepted at both Hastings ($) and Davis ($$), and was leaning towards Davis. I would encourage you to visit both schools, they have very different vibes.

Hastings used to place much better in SF than it does currently, from what I understand. Personally I didn't think the higher cost of living / tuition at Hastings was worth it, since I wanted to work in PI. If wanted a slight edge in the SF market or I was really set on living in SF regardless of my debt level, I would have picked Hastings.
