Regardless of the rankings, McGeorge will always come across as a far better school nationally and of course locally. The only problem is it's very tiny, and in a`bad part of Sacramento. I've lived in Sac all my life, and bad is not the same as "bad" in bigger cities (if you drive any direction at least 5 miles, you are out of the "bad" area). Tuition is high, but I would check out their bar passage rate. That's why people go there. It's geared towards passing the bar, and if you fail, they will do everything they can to help you on your next attempt. McGeorge also gets an edge over Davis because it's a private college, and because Anthony Kennedy taught there. Funny though, I've talked to at least 30 Mcgeorge Grad's (older ones) and when asked about Kennedy, they don't seem too impressed with him, no dislike, just indifferent.
