Whittier Law vs Western State University School Of Law
« on: July 04, 2011, 01:58:07 PM »
Which is a better choice- Whittier Law School or Western State University School of Law? Whittier's attrition rate is a scary 50%, yet it's been ABA-approved much longer than Western State.

Please help, I have a few more days left to make my decision.

Thank you!

They are both Tier 4 schools so I don't know if it even matters that much.  I'll be going to Western State.  Even though they haven't been ABA approved for very long, they have a long list of alumni and it MAY help in finding employment.   The school had really dismal numbers in the past, but their bar passage rate for July 2010 was an impressive 83%.  I also heard the bar passage rate for February of 2011 is also above state average - around 76% or so, but I don't think official numbers have been released.  Just my 2 cents.   Good luck on your decision.
