Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Good West Coast schools?
« on: July 17, 2010, 11:02:41 AM »
In a nutshell, I'm looking for recommendations about schools on the West Coast that fit the following criteria:
1.)  Gay-friendly, politically tolerant, and located in either a temperate climate or right on the beach (50-80 degrees is ideal if far from the water). 
2.)  Has a good reputation in the San Francisco Bay Area (where I ultimately want to end up). 

This inquiry is prompted by a few specifics.  Is Golden Gate University really that bad for a safety school?  Pepperdine seems great on paper, but I hear it is very conservative.  Would my moderate-to-liberal views be seen more as helpful discussion or problematic?  Do Pepperdine graduates get hired in San Francisco or do they stick to Los Angeles?  UC-Irvine is a new school, but it has a rock-star of a dean (Erwin Chemerinsky) and one of my personal heroes on the faculty (Elizabeth Loftus).  What is it like?

Any and all help is very much appreciated!
