Wow. You and I are / were in the same boat. until today I have been stuck with Chapman v. Southwestern for the same reasons - nice campus v. LA established name. What swayed you? I don't know what to do myself. AB3
SW2L, I am not saying that Southwestern or Chapman are inferior Law Schools. I strongly believe that the USNWR criteria is useless and everyone has their own individual criteria of what makes the right Law School. However, when I read ab3's post I got the feeling that debate was b/w a more highly regarded school and one with a nice campus. Maybe I was a bit too over the top, but what I was getting at was that after you graduate employers care more about reputation. The fact tgat ab3 is very interested in Entertainment Law seems to make Southwestern a no-brainer
Just a word to the wise. I recommend you ignore anything written here by any "SouthwesternL" except "Southwestern2L". The rest are a troll best known as "Garkunkle" whose posts are absurd to be nice. This goes for anyone else who shows up here sounding like a fool. It's probably "Garkunkle".Other than that, both schools have much to recommend them. I'm going to Chapman -- that's right ya dipstick, Garkunkle -- and am very excited about it. PM me if you like.
