it seems like the higher the ranking, the less scholarship it offers me. (in the exact order, ranging from 35000 from chapman to 18000 from pepperdine)

I have been accepted to

Chapman
UNLV
U San diego
Pepperdine

where should i go?

Where do you want to practice?

Also, cross Chapman off your list.

TITCR.

I'd say UNLV, but it really depends on where you want to work.

Pepperdine, but for the location more than the rank.

Chapman is nothing to write home about, and neither is Loyola really.

Also, vowels are appreciated.

Word on the street is that with the budget crisis in Nevada Boyd might be taking a big nosedive very soon. They've had major budget cuts...look into it if you're considering going.

I am still waiting on loyola but any suggestions if i do get in? I wouldnt have to move out if I go to loyola. I would if i go to pepperdine. the cost of living is outrageous in malibu.... so thats a consideration. if I do get into loyola, should I still chose pepperdine? Is it a big difference in terms of connection, reputation, starting salary... etc between the two schools? Thank you! any advice would be good!

If you get into Loyola, go there.  In that case, it would be:

Loyola>>>>Pepperdine>>>>USD>>>>>>>>>>>>>Chapman>UNLV

Note: this is for working in LA only.


Also, it is expensive to live in Malibu, but I'd say a lot of Pepperdine students commute from Santa Monica.  Yes, that's also pricey, but less so than Malibu.
