Other than that, Loyola outshines Southwestern in reputation in LA...but not necessarily in salary and job prospects.
I'd totally disagree with this. SW is a firmly entrenched 3rd tier school. Loyola is a school some people may consider to be a top -50 type of school. Check out NALP, ask around, do whatever, even look at salary stats. Loyola grads to make more money, and get more job opportunities. Remember, LA has some really good schools- UCLA, USC. You need all the advantage you can get against those beasts.
