Why the bizarre list of schools? You're pretty obviously from Southern California, but this is still a weird list.

What do you want out of your law degree?

You're likely to get in to all of the schools you applied to minus Berkeley (they're unpredictable and GPA-centric a bit) and Stanford (which you already know). But depending what you want out of this degree, the list of schools you applied to could've been much more effective in balancing cost and goals.

if you're willing to live in Ithaca, you should be willing to live in Ann Arbor/Philly/Charlottesville/etc - especially since jobs prospects will be much greater there than many of the schools on your list. This seems like a clear case where reapplying next cycle (to ALL the T13) would help you get the best outcome. If you retake while waiting for next cycle and get even a couple more points, combined with that URM status, you'd be looking at a good amount of money. Don't sell yourself short by going this cycle, unless you get into Stanford (and even then - is it really worth the cost? What are your career goals?)

You need to apply to more T13, which will give you more money than Berkeley. I'd work under the assumption you're getting in there and work to maximize your scholarship there (which will be done through negotiation) so you need aid offers at peer schools.

You're pretty golden for UCLA and USC with a lot of $$$$.

Especially as a MA first gen college grad, apply more places. Higher ranked places. You will land USC/UCLA with great $$$, so no need to apply to more "safety" schools. Solicit fee waivers if app fees are the issue.

These are my applications, I have decided on these schools for individual reasons, they are not changing, I am not waiting for another cycle, I am not going to explain them, I'm not a BigLaw gunner type, I just want the answer that is the whole point of this particular board. Thank you kindly!


Ok, then the answer is that you're far too immature to know what to do with the advice you're getting here.

If you're not a biglaw gunner type, what do you want to do? This list makes it abundantly clear that you haven't done any research on the process, and since you're a "long time lurker," you knew that people were going to ask those questions to help narrow down ways to improve your chances.

So grow the fuck up or go ask a relative for validation. This board is for getting advice.

Well this seems like a bit much.

Ok, well you’re probably leaving money and optimal options on the table, so as long as you’re comfortable with that, I answered your question with as much certainty as anyone here can.

I hope you consider expanding your search to the rest of the T13 for negotiation leverage, but if not, find the best balance of tuition discount and post-graduation goal, assuming you know what that goal is.

It's true though. What kind of feedback is OP actually looking for? It seems that anything aside from validation is an insult. OP has the same data we have through LSN, TLS, etc. that would give the chance they have at each of these schools, so they already know they have a shot at other T-13 as well. "Chance me" posts should have extenuating circumstances beyond their numbers, otherwise it's a simple plug-in to these sites. Don't make these posts if you're not going to entertain replies that say anything beyond "You're doing great!".
