T4: California Western School of Law

Any thoughts? It seems that they have a strong presence in San Diego even considering the desirable location, competing graduates from other schools and CW is a tier 4.

How about Cal Western? A tier 4 in San Diego. Oldest accredited school in San Diego. 2nd Highest placement in San Diego behind USD. Strong alumni base in San Diego - so I hear  :-\ . But the school also contends with HLS, Stanford, UCLA ,USD, basically all T6 and any well regarded Californian schools. Also, I cant find much on salaries from CW graduates (although I know salary statistics are problematic)

So...A well regarded T4? or just another TTT..

3.1 GPA. 2.5 GPA frosh & sophomore year. 3.7 GPA junior & senior year. So yes, in the context of prospective 0L's, my numbers are less than sub-par.

Would anybody avoid Cal Western @ all costs? Im strongly considering attedning, but cant get one ounce of good feedback off TLS.com

Getting any sort of scholarship?

Unfortunately not. Potentially next year.

Any chance of doing better on an LSAT retake? I don't think Cal Western would be worth it at sticker.










Honestly, i spent 6 months studying balls out for the test. I had a good study buddy and we were each getting 158's-low 160's...On test day, section 2 I had to piss SOO bad towards the end of the section. I ended up missing the last 8 straight questions on the test. This is the reason I have a 154 IMO. I really don't want to postpone my education for a year so I can attempt to retake the test. Although, I know how minimal a year, and in the long run it probably is the most prudent choice.....

 honestly @#!* the LSATS, and to some degree GPA's. I understand schools having to report those numbers, but I have visited one-on-one in person with multiple 1L/2L's @ Miami, UofOregon, ASU, Chapman, Cal Western @ their school, and many of them (while they may have been bored with my pre-1L questions) could not hold/keep up with the conversation...maybe Im way off base here though..

If you had a relative or a loved one who was a retard, would you still use the term in such a derogatory manor? FWIW, I dunno what word is harder to get out of my vocabulary; retard or fag....I find myself calling my roommates these words daily.....The hegemonic matrix of heterosexual masculinity has an daunting grasp on my selection of vocabulary.
