Hastings versus Loyola??

Hastings versus Loyola??
« on: October 19, 2007, 11:32:38 AM »
So in looking at schools, I generally can come up with my own opinion about which school is better for me and where I'd rather go.  The two that are giving me the toughest time is when i look at Hastings versus Loyola.  Hastings gets much higher ratings from US News, but i heard from one person that firms like loyola grads better.  Hastings, however has almost three times the number of firms that participate in OCI. I know some people don't like Hastings for its proximity to the Tenderloin and the issues found there.

So I'm looking to get opinions about how others looked at Loyola and Hastings?  I'm looking to stay in California upon graduation, if it makes a difference. I appreciate any ideas. Thanks!

obviously I have a bias, but Hastings is the better choice.

Hasting not only has a better reputation, it is cheaper for in-state residents.

Hmm, lots of Hastings fans here. I do like the fact that they have far more firms at OCI too.  That I want to stay in LA afterwards doesn't make that much of a difference?
