Thanks everyone for their replies regarding Whittier.  I feel better about the school.

But what about your guys opinion on whether choosing Whittier over Southwestern (if I got into both), if you were interested in family type law? 

Thanks ahead of time and I appreciate all the help.

don't do it.  Go to SW.  SW, despite being T3, is a strong school here in the LA area.  The reputation is one up on  Whittier.

If you're interested in family law, I don't think the overall prestige of your school is as much of an issue than if you were intent on some corporate BigLaw job after school.  Given that you know what your specialty is going to be, and Whittier has a great reputation for that specialty, I (if I were in your position) would choose it over SW. 

Certainly apply to both though.  You'll have plenty of time to decide later.  You'll probably have a better chance of getting scholarship $ to Whittier, and if that bears out to be the case...more reason to go there instead.

You just bumped a thread from November 2004 to say "don't go to Whittier?"

Did she end up attending Whittier?

I'm curious myself.

What's the deal with Whittier's probation?
Pish, J only wants to waste YOUR time.  Get wise.

Something about Pinkybella's avatar seems really hot to me. That's probably not normal.

How the heck did I get in this thread? Oh, right... 'unread posts'. Like a black hole of randomness.
Have you ever considered the practical benefits of force lightning at a barbecue?
