Whittier? Really?

Are you a Californian?

No, but I am aware of how they damn near lost their accreditation and how they continue to be a shithole.

You say that like I don't like participating in them. ;)

Why are you so curious about my home state? I'm curious as to that. Personally, I enjoy the game.

How much desire do you have returning back to your state versus stay in Florida or move to Atlanta, Texas, etc.?

Yes really. I realize that at one time they had been on probation.  However, they have worked really hard to shore up their numbers.  They've stopped accepting applicants with dubious LSAT scores.  They now require extensive pre-bar classes.  Their 2008 bar passage was 80%.  Their new dean is from the University of Colorado School of Law.  Their legal writing program is tops.  They have a collaboration with Pepperdine University for their international program.  They are heavily supported by the Orange County District Attorney's office.  Here is a list of law firms that have hired Whittier grads:

Here is a short incomplete list of schools that Orange County Community College graduates have gotten into:

Stanford

UCLA

Cornell

Duke

Penn

Does that mean much to an average Joe who is about to enter that community college?  Don't you think it's misleading not to mention the WHOLE story? 

Please don't do this again.  Some naive pre-law kids is going to think that an average Whittier grad is going to get an offer from one of these firms.  You and we all experienced ones know that probably less than 5% of its graduates end up at any of these firms.
