I've got one more semester to go at SW, and frankly, I've enjoyed the hell out of my experience at this school. If whatever law school you attend ends up preventing you from being successful, then you suck, not the school. We all start out with the grandest of dreams; but when you don't exactly get what you wished for at square one, you just need to lift your head and attack the opportunities in front of you. In the long run, that kind of attitude will overcome any of the deficiencies you percieve regarding your current options. You'll end up looking back at some point and realizing that there was no deficiency in the first place -- it was all in your head.
Just as an example of why I'm so pleased with SW, I'm currently taking Trial Advocacy with The Honorable Charles W. McCoy Jr.. This man is presently the supervising judge over more than 250 civil courts in Los Angeles. He was an attorney/partner in a major LA firm for seventeen years, before becoming a judge in 1992. He's written books, etc. I could go on about his qualifications. In addition, our classroom is one of, if not the most, state-of-the-art mock courtrooms in the U.S. I couldn't imagine wanting to be in any other school learning this skill from any other professor.
