I've been dying to see Pepperdine's stats compared to USF and SCU, since Pepperine climbed so high and the other two dropped out. By stats I mean GPA ranges, LSAT, bar passage rates, and employment rates. Thanks :)
in that order and employed at graduation first, then 9 months

Pepp 3.31-3.71 157-161 70.1% 51.3% 95.7%
USF  2.98-3.54 157-162 64.4% n/a   89.3%
SCU  3.23-3.61 156-160 65.8% n/a   84.4%


Many thanks.

Just having Ken Starr as the Dean was enough for me to place Pepperdine in the "do not bother" list.  A school that appoints such a controversial person to a leadership position is making a statement.  A statement, by the way, that excludes about half of the population.

I agree, but to be fair, they did offer him the position before the Whitewater investigations.

Starr was appointed as independent counsel in 1994.

His broadening of the investigation from Whitewater to sexual activity had already occurred when Pepperdine appointed him Dean in 1997.

Yes, I corrected myself earlier, thanks to Nexis.  He was already teaching there before Whitewater, but not before they offered him the deanship.

If you have a bit of free time and don't mind, could you throw in University of the Pacific McGeorge too?  Many thanks.

Really, how did it go?  I just received my Cal (Boalt to you weird LSD people) rejection letter and it was over the top nice.  "These are subjective, another decision on your application may have been made with different faculty on the committee, if we're still you're number one choice, please send in a transfer application after your first year..." etc

Hmm.  Baylor is tied with SMU?  That's nonsense.  Try finding a job coming out of Baylor.  Then try finding a job coming out of SMU.

In a nutshell, it basically said that they couldn't take me, but if I was lucky, I MIGHT still be able to have a rewarding life.

I'm sure the Boalt letter was very nice.  The UCLA letter is sugary sweet, as is the NYU letter.  For some reason the BC people just come across as unnecessarily harsh.

But like I said - yay Fordham!
