As a NorCal law dean, not GG, I agree entirely with LivingLegend. I would add that you have a new Dean at GG, Rachel VanCleave, who I know personally and expect to bing a new energy to the law school. I have also seen Living Legend's comments elsewhere on the site where he speaks favorably about California accredited law schools in the Bay Area which I also agree with . . . of course I am a dean at one of those (see separate comments under "M" for Monterey). If a student is concerned about large school environment, tuition cost, and jobs, they should at least check out The NorCal state-accredited law schools such as San Francisco Law School, JFK, Empire, and Monterey College of Law. These schools have strong academic support programs, cost 1/3 to 1/2 the tuition, good bar pass rates for good students, and because of their connections to local bench-bar have better record of job placement than many of the large, impersonal law schools. Definitely not for everyone. Best for those who see a possible future for non-urban law firm practice, public law, regional DAs, Public Defenders, legal services, and non-profit. Definitely not for BigLaw aspirants. FYI, 2013-2014 cycle is still open for California accredited law schools in case ABA "plan A" is not working out for applicants.
