Loyola/ Lewis and Clark/ Seattle U

Postby agalina13 » Mon Mar 09, 2015 1:18 am

I've been accepted to these 3 schools with equitable scholarships to each (about 1/3 of my education costs). I want to practice either in LA or stay in the PNW and am having a difficult time deciding between the three. I've spent the last three years working with kids in the foster care system so I'm pretty clear on that population as my focus. I want to work in juvenile and family law, preferably with kids in the foster care system and their families, mostly dependency stuff. I know they all have public interest but Seattle U is the only one who specifically does juvenile and family law. I'm pretty concerned that Loyola doesn't have enough of a public interest focus, since most students seem to do tax or entertainment law.The three seem pretty equitably ranked but I'm having a pretty difficult time deciding. Thoughts please?

50/50 shot that you end up unemployed or underemployed coming out of any of these schools. I would not go. Do something else.

Retake and wait to see how the whole PSLF thing shakes out- it's not looking good for high-debt borrowers like law students.

Equitable: adjective- fair and impartial. It does not mean the same thing as "equivalent" or "equal," which I think was what you were going for.

But to your question, those schools are too expensive for your goals.

None of these schools are worth going into debt for. Employment outcomes are mediocre from any of the three. You need a better scholarship to make this a good idea.
