Re: Careers in legal aid

I have yet to hear from CA schools. I've applied to UCI, Davis, Hastings, Loyola, Pepperdine, USD. I applied ED for UCI, so my fate could be sealed by year's end. LMU is not known to be generous. I'm an extreme splitter in that I have a sub-3.0 GPA. Also, their jobs data make me wary. Thank you all!...

Re: Careers in legal aid

Thanks, northwood! I'll reach out to one of the legal aid attorneys at our partner agency for their input.

Re: Careers in legal aid

Dickinson's offer does not include living costs. I can ask them to reconsider. My personal savings could cover my costs of living, but I've been advised to take out loans for any law school-related expenses. With my current offer, I estimate leaving Dickinson with $60-80K debt. With ASU Law, I'd ant...

Re: Careers in legal aid

No conditions. You think it would be difficult to secure work outside of central PA with a JD from Dickinson?

Re: Careers in legal aid

... Oh, wow. Okay. I wasn't sure about PSLF - seemed a little sketch. I hope I get into a reputable law school in Southern California (UCI, LMU, Pepperdine). I'm an extreme splitter (low gpa, high lsat), so it's all up in the air. It makes sense for me to stay in Los Angeles (my hometown). I work fo...

Re: Careers in legal aid

Yeah, I'm pretty open. I would prefer to live and work in California (my home state), but I'm not expecting competitive offers from CA law schools. I'm debt averse.

Re: Careers in legal aid

Amazing. Thanks very much! Appreciate you! Question : A legal aid attorney suggested I research states and organizations via LSC. Funding and opportunities for legal aid work in AZ seem a bit scarce. Should I take this into consideration in comparing offers? Do you imagine it would it be very diffic...

Re: Careers in legal aid

Hello All, Decisions are still pending for the 21-22 application cycle, but I have already received a generous offer from ASU Law. I'm currently living in Southern California, and I have several years of WE in a social work-adjacent, human services position. I am committed to public service and publ...
