Okay so I have a dilemma and I am hoping to get some opinions on the matter. I am moving to Southern California, there is no room to move on this. I have been accepted to schools which are not in the right area and have been waiting to hear from the CA schools I applied to. Yesterday I got a letter from La Verne with a $21,500 a year scholarship. That would make tuition there approx. $12,000 which is nice. I know they only have provisional accred. but I think I might be seriously considering it. I am waiting to hear from TJSL, where I am deferred, as well as Cal Western and Whittier although I don't think I have much of chance at those ones. The seat deposit is due June 15th and if I don't hear from the other schools before then I will be sending it in with the intention of transferring to TJSL or Cal Western later on. I know it's not a good idea to go to a school with the intention of transferring but the price is right and I don't want to put it off anymore. I am not interested in going to a T14 and I don't want big law. I just finished 5 years as an undergrad and I am ready to go to law school. I'm not taking the LSATs again, I have taken them twice and raised my score significantly the second time. So I guess I'm wondering what other people think, does it sound like a good idea? I know some people will say it's a horrible idea because La Verne is a T4 but for what I am looking for, does it make sense?
