Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Pepperdine and Religious aspect
« on: April 30, 2004, 08:53:07 PM »
I'm fine with it having that "mission."  It is certainly fine to have the religion available but I'm worried about it being pushed.  Also i've heard a little about the division of students there based on religion and that doesn't seem like the best situation.  I really like everything about the school though and I really would like to go there.  Also I expect any law school to lean conservative, especially relative to where I stand, I'm ok with that.

I'm also thinking of USC and wanting to work in the Bay Area.  I hope that what you say isn't the case.  I wonder if recruitment on-campus though is the full picture.  I mean on-campus recruitment is almost always biglaw.  The med/small firms are usually found through your own means so perhaps it's just that more USC people work in smaller firms (which makes sense with all the tier 1 schools in the area.)  I would find it hard to believe that a large majority of USC granduates don't work in the bay area!

Choosing the Right Law School / Study Abroad

Is anyone else thinking of studying abroad for a semester or summer?  Does anyone know if it looks bad to study abroad instead of getting a IL job?  Also I wonder if it is hard to be approved for the programs.  At NYU i think you needed to be in the top certain percent to get to go.  Any thoughts?

So San Jose is not so nice or pretty?  I found a lot of pictures on the internet of the two areas and it seemed that Santa Clara itself was pretty but San Jose was kindof your typical large city (little too much polution and industry perhaps)

Jan, So will it be USD or USC for you?  Also what are your impressions of the campuses, it sounds like you're pretty familiar with both?  Or does anyone else have any imput?  Sorry for leaving everyone else out. ;D

No really what are peoples impressions of the Santa Clara area?  If someone visited there could you tell us your impression of the campus and the students etc.  I have to decide where i want to go (for now Pepperdine is the other choice) and i'm not going to be able to go and visit any of them!  I've only been to LA.

Choosing the Right Law School / Pepperdine and Religious aspect

I'm worried about going to Pepperdine because I have heard it is ultra-religious and conservative and also that the firms that hire Pepp graduates are very similar.  I myself am not at all religious and I don't want to put myself into a class of people that i don't necessarily jell with.  Does anyone have any thoughts about this?  Also is this a good school?

Jan, What was your undergraduate major?  I am also trying to decide between USD, Pepperdine and SCU.  I would possible like to do IP law at SCU but my background is in music engineering/film school of all things.  Does anyone know if IP law mostly requires an engineering, math, or science background?
