Law School Discussion

Cal Western v. Golden Gate

Cal Western v. Golden Gate
« on: April 16, 2010, 09:31:16 AM »
I am trying to decide between Cal Western in SD and Golden Gate in SF.

At Cal Western I have a small scholarship for the first year.
At Golden Gate I have a scholarship so large that I will not have to pay for law school.

I like both schools but have a feeling that Cal Western is a better school in terms of job prospects and bar passage statistics. Is it better to go to the best law school you get into or graduate without debt?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I go to Golden Gate and I will say that I love it! I know nothing about Cal Western, but I would say go to whatever school will give you the least debt.  If you don't have to pay for an ABA school that is where you should go, unless you are deciding between Cal Western and Harvard or something that drastic otherwise the rank does not really matter. 

In regards to the scholarship at any school be considerate of the GPA limitations a 3.0 in law school is not anywhere near as easy to get as it was in undergrad. If you have any questions about GGU you can personal message me.
