Wiimote, have you ever heard of a Non Sequitur? Think on that for a while before making another post.

CIVIL RIGHTS!!!?!??! Civil rights.
Loyola > Pepperdine > Southwestern > Cal Western
Though if USD were in the mix, I'd go:
Loyola/USD (very preferential with these schools) > Pepperdine > Southwestern > Cal Western
Those are just my 2 cents. While I was applying, I had a slight bias for USD over Loyola. It seems to have a very good grip on the market where it's located whereas Loyola has to compete with UCLA/USC (and every other good law school grad that wants in at LA). For Pepperdine, no one really had anything good to say about the school (occupational as well as the school itself) aside from the fact that the area is beautiful. Truth be told, I avoided Southwestern and Cal Western because, and this could very well be hearsay, because I had been continually told that job options coming out of either school were subpar at best, especially out of Cal Western =\
Whatever the case, good luck with your cycle!
PS! Oh yeah, I also didn't apply to Pepperdine because of their stupid mission statement thing lol
I hope a lot of people have the same view about the mission statement so my chances will be better
Haha, I don't think you have to worry about getting in. Your scores put you somewhere in the 75th percentile for both Davis and Hastings =D
Here is what i have heard about Cal Western as compared to USD. You have better job prospects at the bottom of your class at USD than finishing top of your class at Cal Western.
I had looked at USD before and was pretty close to the bottom 25%'s for LSAT and GPA. However, I retook the LSAT in December and with the classes I've taken this semester, I should raise my GPA (not by a lot, but enough to make me more competitive)
I'll have to give them another look and see if I stand a better chance now. As far as my situation, yes I am going to law school straight after completing my undergrad in May.
The only problems I had with Dell were AFTER I got it. They did not include the right amount of memory, the printer had to be replaced twice, and the computer crashed and died forever after only 2 1/2 years. It was a very expensive paperweight.
I am a mac girl now.
When I first read the thread title my brain processed: "Opportunities for sex during orientation?"
