Not sure i would want to pay 200 grand to go to a school with rules like that.
i'm not sure where the myth that pepperdine is the most expensive school in the country comes from. I've seen it time and time again.
According to USD's website, tuition is $41,200.
Accoring to Pepperdine's website, tuition is $41,150.
People will say, "oh, but the cost of living in Malibu is outrageous!"
And that's why almost every student lives outside of Malibu.
I really see it as on par (cost wise) with most all other schools out there.
I didn't mean to say that Pepperdine was more or less expensive than any other private school-- I just meant that any private school, in general, is going to cost you upwards of 200 grand (obv this varies for different people, living situations, scholly, etc)... sorry if I made it seem like cost was what I was getting at.
Also, I am not saying that everyone HAS to live on campus, but as a future law student, principles and standards are very important to me, and I personally feel that those policies are horrifically wrong, ancient, and just plain dumb (for lack of a better word). Going to a school that aligns, at least somewhat, with my values and modern outlook on life is important to me. Again, if it's not important to you, by all means, enjoy three years there.
