Probably depends on your how you feel about Pepperdine's religious conservatism. If you don't mind it, then it's probably a good deal. If you think it could bother you, Loyola may be a better bet.

Loyola

Just look at where firms interview

NALP Loyola = 199     Pepperdine = 66

well, assuming you're considering employment and rank (with all else equal), then it basically breaks down like this:

pepperdine = the 0L choice because us news (read: magazine editors) says they're better
loyola = the 1L-3L and attorney choice because they have a generally better rep in the legal community

rocky7, Please give up to date information. The employment stats you presented are no longer accurate. It is considerably different now.

Loyola is closer to most major employers and nearly every major courthouse. The rankings for both schools are too close to matter. Therefore, I would go with Loyola because of its proximity to employers and clerkship opportunities coupled with its slightly lower cost.

Stats posted are not accurate -- not sure where NALP gets the info, but last fall, there were close to 200 firms (including all the big law firms, and not just in LA, but also NY) and then another 100 public interest, government etc. organizations.
