Choosing the Right Law School / Re: LSU vs. Loyola-N.O.??

JLA, you have to get rid of that Huey Long icon. Everytime I take a look at one of your posts, looking at that make makes feel ill.

"And I can't believe there are people out there who watched Ghostwriters too!  I think it had something to do with computers, didn't it...?  Way before the internet, of course."

Yeah, Ghostwriter had an episode about computers, "Who is Max Mouse?" It involved the internet, but it had to explain what a modem was.

Family Ties and Cheers were the best. The Cosby Show, too.
Oh, I loved Ghostwriter! I made sure to record a little over half of all the episodes. I converted them to DVD a few years ago.

I don't think it lost it. I can't find anything that said it did.

Ah, I found it...

The Law Center’s Renaissance: From 1994 to 2002
“The Site Team believes that the Law Center has made substantial
progress since 1994. The issues that confronted the 1994 Site Team have
virtually all disappeared. Resources are excellent. The relationship between the
administration and the faculty is solid. The facility will be first-rate once
renovation is completed this fall. The LSU system administration has a good
working relationship with the Law Center. The President is firmly convinced
that the Law Center is making a major contribution to the system and the
Chancellor and the President are mutually supportive of each other. The Law
Center’s graduates have become more generous and its private fund-raising is
becoming more successful. The Law Center’s communications have improved.
Moreover, the Law Center has used its new resources well, creating new
programs in law and medicine, a Latin American initiative, the bi-jural program,
improved admissions, lower attrition, and more effective alumni relations.
In short, the Law Center has much to be proud of in its improvements and its
long history of excellence in Louisiana.4
Since 1998, the law school has increased the annual expenditures per
student to $20,000 per year, secured funding for renovating its buildings, hired
several key new faculty members and staff to support its curricular and administrative
initiatives, increased its research support budgets, reduced its student
body size, increased its admissions standards, reduced student attrition, improved
its library funding and support, made substantial progress in renovating
its buildings, enhanced its institutional outreach, and improved its print and
electronic communications. These achievements can be traced to the flexibility
the law school receives as an independent campus, an aggressive plan by the law
school, excellent state support, and dedicated law school personnel. The law
school shows no signs of slowing its efforts to improve.5
The Law Center is poised for its next steps forward. Its curriculum has
been dramatically altered and the new bi-jural program may be a real mark of
distinction for the law school. Its new curricular initiatives –Health Law and a
focus on Latin and South America– are very promising paths of distinction for
the law school.”6

Where did you hear about its ABA status?

No, I won't be going. I would, but I've missed a heck of a lot of school this semester so far, and LSU but admitted students day on my birthday. I have other plans for my 21st birthday.

Yeah, I applied to both and received scholarships to both. I will be attending LSU.

I decided I would be going to LSU a while back. I decided this mainly because I want to get into politics and would be able to network across the state better there.

You have already brought up good points, such as tuition (I received the same scholarship.) May I add that the facilities at Loyola are not the best, while at Hebert Law Center they just completed a massive renovation.

There are enough LSU grads in the New Orleans area (where I will most likely be practicing) that I am not afraid of being without a job.

If you are going to practice in Louisiana, I see little reason to go to Tulane, otherwise known as Little New York.
