I practice law in the Inland Empire. San Bernardino and Riverside counties are chock full of ULV grads, both bar and bench, including signficant representation in local government, i.e., there are way more than "a few" DDA's in both counties. If your goal is to be a DDA in So Cal, particularly in the aforementioned counties, your choice is an easy one. I spend 3-4 mornings a week in court. As a courtroom lawyer, a "street lawyer," it's all about your skills. Where you went to school matters not beyond the initial job interview. All law school talk fades away after a few years. Good luck!
Your life experience isn't worthless, but your opinion on the situation would be if you didn't have all the facts available to make a decision. Another poster once mentioned a scholarship requirement of Top 10% to keep the money...if that was the requirement for ULV and McGeorge only required good standing, could you in good conscience recommend ULV particularly when the OP mentions wanting to limit debt?
