3+3 BA/JD Program at UCSC/Hastings?

ucguy58ucguy58 Registered User Posts: 6 New Member
Hello everyone, I was recently admitted to UCSC for fall 2018 and I am pretty sure it's where I will end up. One thing I was particularly wondering about was the 3+3 program offered by UCSC in coordination with the UC Hastings College of Law in San Francisco. My issue is with Hastings. Basically what I am trying to figure out is if it's worth the one less year to go to a slightly lower ranked law schools such as Hastings, or to do the full four years for my BA and shoot for a tier 1 law school such as Stanford, Berkeley, or UCLA. Please don't question my ability to get into these schools as that is not the point of this thread, instead offer insight on if it is worth the one less year to alternatively go to Hastings.

    What law school you go to can really determine the trajectory of your legal career. So I think it makes a lot more sense to take an extra year and shoot as high as you can. What's the rush? I guess it saves you a year of undergrad tuition but then are you even eligible for scholarships to Hastings?

    Absolutely not, even if Hastings offered you a full ride today.
