the price tag will be the deciding factor for me

You may wish to look into outside scholarships as well. I don't know if Pepperdine will match scholarship offers from other schools, but that's something that might ease the cost of law school in Malibu. Good luck!


They will match scholarship offers from schools similarly ranked or only schools that are higher?

If they match at all, I imagine they'd have more motivation to draw students away from peer schools than schools that are significantly higher ranked. I have to confess ignorance on Pepperdine's exact policy though.

They'll match if you have the numbers to make the deal....applying early always helps too

Typically they will offer identical scholarships as Loyola as a peer school. Although if they really like your response to the mission statement, they will offer more than Loyola.
