Law School Admissions / Re: Looking for Advice, Please

In general, the prestige of your undergrad matters very little. Getting a solid GPA and good soft factors matters a lot, so you should go somewhere you will be happy. The price can matter too.

Furthermore, it appears that at least by US News general rankings, UC Santa Barbara is much higher ranked(#41 vs. #91).

In the end, you have to go with the school that feels right or works for other reasons. It will matter very little from a law school admissions perspective.

Much appreciated. What is a "soft factor," by the way?

Law School Admissions / Looking for Advice, Please

Hello everyone,

I have been accepted into UC Santa Barbara (a public school) and University of San Diego (a private school) as a transfer undergraduate student majoring in philosophy for the upcoming fall semester but I am having difficulty in choosing one or the other. I wanted to ask whether there was any benefit in attending a private school over a public school insofar as private schools are said to be more "prestigious" or reputable, etc. For instance, would law schools find my attending a private school more favorably than my attending a public school?


Thanks
