Sonofapickle is retarded he has not even taken the LSAT yet alone attended one law school class and has no absolutely no idea what he is talking about.
The attrition at any school is misleading because of the way LSAC presents the information you need to look at the fine print. Whitter has 31% attrition, but or 49 people that left after their first year however only 20 of those 49 actually failed out. That is difference between academic and other for attrition. The 29 that represents the other category includes 28 people that transferred as you can see in the transferred out report and presumably went to higher ranked schools. The one person not accounted for in the other category probably just decided law was not for them.
Taking the other part of the attrition into account the attrition rate is below 15% I don't know feel like getting into the math, but it is below 15%. No school has a mandatory kick out rate etc or whatever b.s. you read.
People get jobs from Whittier and other tier 4's I currently work with people that went to tier 4, tier 3's, tier 2's, and even Berkley & Stanford. Believe it or not law school teaches you the law no matter where you go. Whittier is not going to open the same doors as UCLA at graduation, but if you do a good job for a few years from Whittier or any school you will develop a reputation as a good attorney and nobody will care what school you went to. I was in court today and a Touro Grad won a motion against someone that went to Berkley today. Shockingly there schools did not come up once in court, I had just talked to both of them before and knew what schools they went to.
Use your common sense and realize if you go to a tier 4 it is going to be harder to get your career started than if you went Harvard. However, if you want to be a lawyer go to law school.
Don't listen to B.S. stuff from people that have not even attened law school on the internet regarding tier 4's. If someone has a differnt first-hand experience with then be more than willing to listen to their advice, but listening to someone like Sonofapickle who has never set foot in a law school classroom and not even taken the LSAT in fact he has never had a job that paid him anything. He posts ignorant sh** on this website all the time and that is how I know those facts about him.
Bottom line don't listen to any discouraging things people say that no experience with anything. Go to Lawschoolnumbers and try e-mailing the people that actually ended up attending Whittier over the last few years and their first hand account. Not some inexperienced retards statement on the internet.
