Loyola to UCLA.....Worth it?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jul 03, 2013 1:05 am

Please give me your thoughts......

Top 15% at Loyola (just missed Top 10%..grrrr), Law Review, modest scholarship, and solid work experience. Scared I won't have a chance in hell at OCI at Loyola and at least if I strike out at OCI at UCLA, I will still have a better name on my degree in the long run (which might help me after I graduate if I'm still jobless...YIKES).

Thoughts? Would OCI be any better at UCLA (more firms, more interviews...etc)? Is it worth the $40K I would pay due to no scholarship at UCLA?

What would you do? :)

Some people might pretend it isn't even a close decision, but I can think of a ton of reasons why it might be.

I think you have a better probability of success at UCLA. That 15% can turn into 25% too easily. Just try and find some type of extras at UCLA you can get involved in, maybe compete in some moot court stuff.

If I recall Loyola absolutely tanked in the rankings this year because employment became a consideration in USN rankings.
