Finances not a factor in decision nor is location within LA. The only limiting factor right now is a need to remain stateside after graduation--no exotic ports of call. If you're not sure which particular practice area you'll end up in within the generic 'public interest'--healthcare, environmental, financial fraud, crim etc. Which do you choose?
Loyola because of its walking distance proximity to Legal Aid, ACLU, Public Counsel etc
Pepperdine because of its connections through the Nootbar Institute, and with the International Justice Mission and Worldvision, and the Asylum or Special Education or Investor Advocacy Clinics.
