Free Hotel. Lots of parties. Just make sure you dont fall for the 200k debt and no job prospects routine.

Interestingly, I am actually very pro-going to law school even though its a financial disaster. So i'm not the one to hate here.

Thank you! I most likely wont be attending because I have been accepted to a few other schools but I am still contemplating because they were one of the few schools to offer me a little money.

Just mailed my 2nd deposit. It's looking like I'll be at CWSL in August...unless I get off a waitlist (Chapman, Pacific, USF, and Southwestern).

CWSL> Chapman > USD> Southwestern and nearly similar to USF, Pacific, and Santa Clara. Underrated much?

That's the 2009 info.


http://www.protectconsumerjustice.org/2 ... ool-2.html

Here is 2010 where they declined but are still ranked a good bit higher than Southwestern. It's a bit alarming how low SW has been ranked in Bar Passage the last few years.

I honestly don't know why Calwestern has been stuck at a sub 150 rank for so long. I assume the low admitted LSAT and GPA factor fairly big but they hang pretty well with T2-T3 schools in Bar Passage rates. From the few L2s and L3s I've talked to the job prospects aren't too bad even in a relativly small San Diego legal market.

Does anybody know if CWSL would be willing to renegotiate scholarship money if I were to get a 3-5 point LSAT bump in June? If I could manage a 1/2-full scholly I would be happy to go to CWSL given the type of law I want to go into.

Don't forget to sign up for Summer Enrichment if you plan on going to CWSL. You won't regret it.
