Another thing you might want to consider is working for a year or two before law school. Many law schools will focus less on your undergraduate gpa the longer you have been out of school on the assumption that you have done some maturing while out of school and in the working world.
I thought the same thing when I first started to use it but it actually is pretty accurate. The thing is that it seems that the majority of the people who use the site are in that top percentile. A really good resource is the LSAC school search finder. It gives a decent amount of information and also gives a comprehensive breakdown of amount of people who applied and got accepted between ranges of LSAT and GPA.

Hey thanks Big for the insight. I am looking into a few schools in L.A. and Chapman as well and I would obviously go visit the school before I decided to attend. I am more or less trying to figure out if it is even worth a visit and consideration of attending. I want to get into entertainment law which is why I am considering the L.A. area. And my grades aren't on par with UCLA but they are good enough where I might see some scholarship money from schools like southwestern. I am happy to hear that you know people who graduated from Southwestern who are doing well for themselves.
Hey I am from the East Coast and also applying to a bunch of schools on the West Coast so visiting isn't the easiest option. Does anyone have any insight personally, or second hand knowledge of the school? I appreciate any feedback.
Its a mixed bag.. I am about to finish undergrad but from what I have done I really like trial advocacy. But it was always a passion of mine to get into the entertainment industry and I actually do have a considerable amount of connections that route.
Whats I'm really concerned about is the overall credibility/perception of Chapman and how the students like the school.
Hey does anyone have any insight into the Chapman Law School in California. I knew its a relatively young school but it is ranked tier 2 and top 100 law schools. I have been considering entertainment law and I know they have a pretty extensive program but I don't know anything more than the information they sent/their website.
Any additional information would be very appreciated.

I have talked to a few students who go there. Ones a 2L and the others a 3L and the both like it a lot. They said that the Professors are terrific and that there are a lot of opportunities for jobs and paid internships. The 2L student was telling me he got a paid internship this summer going into his second year.
I visited NYLS today and was very impressed. The building is very modern with incredable views of the city.the library was also very nice with plenty of places to study. There was also plenty of places to sit and study throughout the entire building. It seems they offer a lot of differnt subjects of law. They also seem to offer a decent amount of clinics and law journals. The price tag is the only thing that concerns me but they have a priced fix menu if you will. Your tuition remains the same for all three years. Allegedly this makes NYLS competitivly priced in the NYC area.
