I'd like to practice in California, Oregon, Washington, or Nevada.

I think debt is consideration no. 1 personally

I voted for Lewis & Clark b/c it's the only one with a semi-decent reputation, but what would your overall bill end up being there? If it leaves you more than about $75K in debt (including CoL), then I gotta tell you...

On the other hand, I can't recommend GG either. From talking to the one CA lawyer I know (a non-T13 grad, and it wasn't even a conversation about GG), they sort of have a west coast Cooley-type rep.

Ask Lewis and Clark for at least $5K more a year. Ask Southwestern for at least $10K more. Go to the one that bites.
