That's all you got from LLS? You should definitely go back and negotiate for more. That's if you're truly set on not re-taking, which I would recommend doing (unless you're over 30 and plan to have a child soon or something to where you need to go to law school now). I have similar numbers, non-URM and received 90K.

That actually sounds like a really bad time to go to law school, not a time to go NOW

Re read OP's schollies. That is $32k per year. OP has $96k total.

This thread is old now and I'm not going back to see if I commented already as I'm on my phone.

The schools are basically peer schools. You have compelling reasons to be in the city (free rent, better transport) and a minor reason to chose Pepp (more rural, potential Ventura bump). In the end, you can work in the city or in a suburb/more rural area with either degree. Both schools offer comparable employment prospects and networking (maybe a slight edge for LLS). Take the least debt and more practical option for commuting.

Oh, also, even if the conservative element is mostly absent at the las school at Pepp I understand that is definitively not the case for the dorms.

Can you explain this? I know Ventura County very well. Do you mean the actual city of Ventura?


Pepperdine is the closest law school to Ventura County. That's what I'm guessing they are referring too. Easy drive up the 1 to get to Oxnard and Ventura downtown is not much further.

The dorms are 1) overpriced so not worth living there and 2) should be considered irrelevant for choosing there.
