A quick definition of Economics and Statistics Administration:

Economics and Statistics Administration: A part of the U.S. Department of Commerce that makes sure the government reports statistics accurately and provides important information to other parts of the government. It includes three groups: the Bureau of the Census, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and STAT-USA.

A more thorough explanation:

The Economics and Statistics Administration (ESA) is a part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Its main job is to make sure that the government's statistics are accurate and reliable. It also provides information and analysis to the Department of Commerce and other parts of the government.

The ESA includes three organizations: the Bureau of the Census, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and STAT-USA. The Bureau of the Census collects data about the population and economy of the United States. The Bureau of Economic Analysis provides information about the economy, such as how much money people are making and spending. STAT-USA is an online service that provides economic information to businesses and government agencies.

One example of the ESA's work is making sure that the unemployment rate is calculated correctly. The Bureau of Labor Statistics, which is part of the Department of Labor, collects data about how many people are employed and how many are looking for work. The ESA makes sure that this data is accurate and that the unemployment rate is calculated correctly.

Another example is providing information about international trade. The Bureau of Economic Analysis collects data about how much the United States is buying and selling with other countries. This information is important for businesses that want to export their products or import materials from other countries.

Ijustwannagetinman

UCLA off the waitlist is also nearly impossible so actually stanford is number -1, UCLA is number 0, and USC is number 1

When adcoms give below median candidates the good news https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ueR0lJzIxWo&pp=ygUUaSBhbSBsZWdlbmQgc2FtIGRpZXM%3D

UCLA admitted 10/531 (~2%) waitlistees last year, that seems pretty average for the T14-20
19:48
16/620 (~2.6%) the year before, also within the norm

@jb2028: yeah waitlist data is pretty fucked though bc most people don’t publish where they withdraw from once they pick a school and/or return here to post their waitlist acceptance
20:04
Also correct, not to mention people are inconsistent about marking waitlist As as such (though if you see an A in July or August you can use your common sense)

Would y’all pick UCI ($$$) or Texas A&M (full-ride)? I like California because I grew up there, but also don’t hate the thought of moving or practicing somewhere else. Interested in criminal law or human rights law. Also, I’m still trying to ride UCLA waitlist as that’s my first choice. I could really use some advice
Ijustwannagetinman
20:20
@jb2028: so true
Ijustwannagetinman
20:22
@TheFriendlyLorax: idk anything about those schools but go where you’ll be happiest. I will say Dallas is awesome though and has tons of opportunity (highest big law salaries in the country!)
how do we gauge the quality of student life at these schools? the decision is really weighing on me

Vibes and prayer IMO
