Have you visited both? I have a friend who went to Villanova for LS and was very disappointed in the diversity of her class and the faculty. I'm not talking about affirmative action but that the student body lacked different backgrounds and experiences. She said it hrt the overall experience and quuality of education. The reputation I've heard from both undergrad and law school is that it's very vanilla. I don't know if that matters to you.
I said it in another thread..visit Villanova before attending. Everyone looked, dressed and acted exactly the same. It was like an preppy cult. Scared me to death.
But, yeah, go to McGeorge if you want to stay in California. It's a lot easier to build contacts, etc. in the location where you attend school. That said, we have a decent number of students from CA and some go back after graduation.
PM me if you want any additional information about the law school.
