from what i've heard the school itself academically is not that bad. i knew someone who had a prof at boalt who used to teach at golden gate and said it was about the same. the problem, of course, is where are you going to get hired after you graduate? even if it was a very solid school, you have to keep in mind that one of the number one hirings draws is going to be regional law firms wherever you go. the problem with golden gate is that it is surrounded by top-notch law schools- boalt, hasting, stanford and uc davis are all within 100 miles, not to mention that san francisco law firms are some of the top nation wide meaning that they hire from law schools all over the country. basically, you have to be in the very top of your class to get any decent prospects to be hired, otherwise firms will take someone who graduated lower from one of the more prestigious law schools in the area. to make it worse, it is not a very well known school outside of the bay (its not even well known IN the bay) so life is going to be very tough on you post-graduation. i would recommend looking elsewhere.
as for the person who posted about people having trouble with the bar- i dont think thats a reflection of the quality of the schools teaching but the caliber of people who go there. its a standardized test and from everything ive heard hardly something taht law schools spend much time preparing students to take.
