You know, living here in LA, and really looking at it seriously, yea Loyola does have a great rep not just here but in Southern California. For example, a comparable school is USD, but Loyola seems to have more clout in San Diego than USD would have in LA (if that makes sense?)
Just to cover all bases, I just applied to Loyola today. (their priority deadline was Feb 2, but they are on rolling so I figured why not?) I'm hoping to at least get into their night program, just to add to potential options for myself.
