Worth it to transfer from Loyola (Los Angeles) to UCLA?

If you are ranking high enough to transfer, you are probably getting a scholarship right? I guess it depends on 1) if you plan on working in LA, and 2) what kind of law you want to practice.

Regardless, have a good shot at Biglaw if you on top at LLS. Plus, you will end up with less debt.

I would say if you are planning on going east coast, go UCLA, otherwise I might stay at LLS and save the cash.

LLS, if you are on a scholarship. If you are ranked high enough to transfer (top 10%), you are likely on a merit scholarship or will receive a scholarship award. They are pretty significant too, starting from 70% of tuition and up.

I hope he picked UCLA.  It'd be worth it just to get out of that cage they call Loyola.  Seriously, that fence is depressing.
