military - By "balenced" you mean republican, right? It's ok, but I thought that it was a given. Chapman is in the OC, after all.
I would chooose SW over Chapman, but that's just me personally. I'm sure you've already covered all your bases, but I think southwestern is still a better pick regionally (its just more well known)..... even if Chapman is on its way up, SW is still higher, and if you kill your first year and score top 10% than nothing could really stop you from finding a good job (this applies to chapman, to a certain extent, as well.)Congrats on both, though. That's really awesome! LA or OC...... tough choice. Don't forget the 3 supreme court clerks at Chapman, and the fact they probably will be going up in rankings soon..... plus, a law school in OC is probably bound to do well.eh. i know not what i'm saying right now. its late. congrats though. fur reals.
I'd take Chapman over SW if you want to work in Orange County. It'll be difficult for you to find a solid job in OC from either school, but I'd give Chapman the edge. It'd give SW an edge on getting you a job in LA with more money though.
Pinkybella..if I recall you want to do family law..correct?..for that practice area it doesnt matter where you go..but you should go the higher rank school..SW is third tier now..its not going down .and there is no guarantee that chapman will go up.......

Just because a school might have a couple more conservaive profs does not make it a "republican" school. Chapman's faculty still shows about a 9:1 raio of liberals to conservatives. Better than the nearly uniformly liberal faculty a most cali schools.
