Univ of San Francisco vs. Univ of the Pacific McGeorge
« on: April 14, 2009, 03:58:34 PM »
Hey fellow lawyers-to-be!
I've recently heard back from a few schools including USF and McGeorge, which I am very happy about since I am hoping to study in Cali.  But I'm not sure which is a better school.  U.S. News seems to say McGeorge is a higher ranked school, but I'm not sure how the job prospects are outside of Sacramento - as in the San Francisco Bay area.  From my research, USF seems to have a good regional reputation.  What are everyone's thoughts?  Is anyone a grad from either of the schools or know of anyone that is?  I'm from Canada, so I can't really go down and do campus visits before the deposit deadlines are due either, but I'm hoping to be able to make it down in late June to take a look.  Thanks every

First, check the new rankings...USF and McGeorge have swapped places, for whatever it's worth.

I'm a 1L at USF and love it.

I would say, if you love SF, go to USF.  If you love Sacramento, go to McGeorge.  Both are good schools.  I'm biased, but USF is a special place.

Definitely choose USF.  The Sacramento legal market is in even worse shape than SF and McGeorge does not carry much of a name.

Congratulations on admission.

Did you see the July 08 bar passage rates for USF? Way up there, 87% first time takers. In fact, their passage rates are always high.
