i ususally just read all the posts, but i have a serious problem and i don't know what to do. I got into pepperdine, but only with a 1500 law grant, the rest is in loans. I also got into Howard law school, which is where i go for undergrad, with a 10,000 renewable merit scholarship. i really, really, really do not want to stay in dc, i am from cali and i want to practice there when i graduate. My area of interest is ip/ entertainment and sports law. I am still pending at loyola, USC and uc hastings, but i think that i only have a shot at Loyola. i have to send in deposits very soon, so if anyone can offer their opinion, i would really appreciate it.
