Pepperdine and Loyola are giving me the same amount of money...i know apparently Loyola has a better reputation...but i just HATED the campus and can't imagine wanting to be there or enjoying myself at that school

Well...Pepperdine, if that's the case.  I mean, it'll be hard to succeed at a law school if you absolutely despise their campus.  I felt that way between Loyola and SD, and for that reason, SD won out in the end =D

But that's only if you're absolutely sure you want to practice in LA.  In the end, Fordham will probably offer you lots more opportunities, etc...

Isn't Kenneth Starr the dean of Pepperdine?

How is this sarcastic?

I am sarcastically asking a rhetorical question because I think a law school making such a partisan political figure the dean (not to mention making him spearhead their "we-wanna-be-george-mason conservative philosophies) is a sure sign that pepperdine is a joke.  the end.
