Cal Western and Chapman in regards to Criminal Law
« on: April 16, 2005, 04:07:03 PM »
Hi, 
  I am still waiting to hear on 4 more of my schools but as it stands now I have been accepted to Cal Western with 10k and Chapman with 9k.  I am wondering what the general opinion is regarding these schools relative to criminal law ( I want to be a prosecutor).  Thanks for any responses.

Hey Mrs ...
I actually don't know the answer to your question, but I just wanted to say it's cool you want to be a prosecutor. I want to be a prosecutor too, but I'm seriously worried about being able to pay off my loans.  ??? I'm hoping and hoping that I will get some outside scholarships.
I suggest you look up prosecutors from Orange County on the calbar website and see where most of them went to school.

The schools are similar in many respects. Chapman is relateive new, so it doesn't have the alumni base that Cal Western does;  I'd go with Cal Western, particularly if you planned on staying in San Diego.

So my scholarships are not renewable.....  :( Do you think that Chapman would have an increased probablity of better 2L and 3L scholarships since they have more money in the school??
