Do you want to work in LA or Sac? That may a large factor. Southwestern definitely has a better rep in LA; however, the money at UoP is nice.If I were you, I would study in the region you want to work. I accepted USD over Loyola because I want to be in San Diego.

I agree with this. I just withdrew from Southwestern even though my family also lives here and lost $200 because I prefer Sacramento to LA. I got the exact scholarship offer as you and I just recently visited both schools. I think that Southwestern's library blows McGeorge's out of the water but McGeorge has nicer people and an environment that I prefer. So it was an easy choice for me especially after seeing the place for myself this past Friday. If you want to stay in LA and would like to use a really sweet library then I would choose Southwestern. If you want to live in Sacramento and prefer to have a community at your school then I would go to McGeorge.
I would think that you would have other offers later on this cycle since we are likely in the same boat.
McGeorge has always treated me with respect and Southwestern hasn't... Southwestern is so disorganized that it's not even funny. McGeorge on the other hand had my financial aid packet to me within 2 weeks of my accpetance. No competition here.

Well, I think that post graduation I will want to live in either Los Angeles or the San Francisco area. I think I could enjoy Sacramento while there for school, but it's not where I would like to "settle down".
