It all depends on a range of contingencies. The University of California is the best public institution in the business of higher education, including its law programs. Given the right incentives and variables to outweigh competing considerations, yes.
Note on your sub-note: do you know for fact that UC Hastings is cutthroat? Or do you base that opinion on hearsay, rumor, anecdotes, etc.? I did some research and found little evidence supporting such a hypothesis. In fact, I found useful information to the contrary, the law school has a low attrition rate, especially under the category of ďacademic attritionĒ--the more relevant category when evaluating a law schools attrition rate in terms of academic difficulty. Moreover, law programs would rather have candidates succeed, thatís part of the reason adcoms spend quite a bit of time assessing applicant merit and potential. More to the point, they investigate to make sure they perceive some JD-entelechy before admitting applicants into the program.
