What's so good about UC Davis? Does anyone know?

I know about as much as a non-law school student can possibly know about Davis.  Here are, in my opinion, the top 5 things about the school:

1. VERY friendly environment, probably due to the small-town atmosphere, as well as the lack of Socratic Method in classrooms.

2. People aren't obsessed with working at the top firms, so there is less competition, and more cooperation between students.  Also, supposedly students there are in general less egotistical than the average law school student.

3. Though graduates don't get particularly high paying jobs, there is something nice about a school that employs around 80 percent at graduation (MUCH higher than Hastings), and 96 percent 9 months after graduation.

4. Cost of living is cheaper in Davis than almost anywhere else in the state.

5. It's a UC - the UC system is easily the best public university system in the country world.


Had to throw in my own little addition and some comments. :) California is a giant state with a lot of legal jobs. Stanford and Boalties may or may not stay in California, whereas USC and UCLAers probably will, but more in SoCal. After that you have Hastings and Davis. UC Hastings is in the Bay Area and UC Davis is near Sacramento, the capital.

Aw, yay! Thank you, Mantis, for shamelessly plugging my survey, that's sweet!  It's for my thesis folks, I could use any help you're willing to dish out.

Along the same lines, if anyone could help me get an acceptance, to ANY school, that would be even better. Yeah, cuz now I'm looking at my list and my schools look like ridiculous long shots. K, thanks. :)
