but on the other hand it is ranked higher than Sta Clara and McGeoerge, and people in LA seem to talk it up (probbly since every one has met several Loyola Alumni). Also since I took the LSAT so late inthe cycle my options were limited. On the plus side McGg and Sta Clara have 3 and 2 % higher Bar pass rates respectively, which in my mind means that they are basically on par with Loyola, regardless of USNews and their whacked out methodology. Well can I still apply just in case? Or would it be a waste of time to apply after the deadline?
