Using the mythical formula when choosing law schools:
If Employment score > Unemployment score = GO GO GO
If Employment score < Unemployment score = NO NO NO
Bottom line, Hastings all the way bro.
There it is. Done.
Look, clearly the (unanimous?) consensus is that either is a terrible idea if they are not full rides, but you are going to do what you are going to do.
For conversation though, are you set on trying to work in Cali? I saw you got into UF and if you want to work in Florida it is not a bad school, especially at under 20k tuition for 2L and 3L and cheap cost of living. I am not saying UF at out of state sticker is a great idea, but if you are ok working in Florida, especially if you have ties there, that is a much better choice than Hastings or Loyola.
The reasons that you state gave Florida a strong argument. I do see myself in Cali long term, though, which is why I bailed.
