I'm currently in Southern California. I understand it's going to be very difficult for me to stay/practice here. I'm open to practicing in CA/NY/NV/AZ as of right now. At the same time, if someone directs me in the direction of a school in any other region, one that will significantly increase my chances of making a decent living after law school, then of course I will consider.
I know Southwestern Law in LA has a good regional influence as far as the high % of people they send to the DA/PD's office as well as smaller private firms. I will definitely be applying there.
Forget about going anywhere other than California. Law School is a regional thing by nature and by staying in state you greatly increase your chances of being accepted. Not only that, considering the amount of law schools California has you should be able to find work in your crazy lawsuit-filled state.
Southwestern, Chapman, Golden Gate, and any other schools in this range. You will probably have to settle for Tier 3. Shoot for Santa Clara because nothing is ever set in stone, something the clowns on this forum would know if they listened in class. If you get wait-listed work hard to get accepted, volunteer work, call every week, you know the drill.
And don't worry about scholarships, go to the better school, you will make that money back 10-fold if you go to a school with a "name".
Who the fuck is this guy? ^^^^
