Loyola LA vs. Pepperdine

Postby ccbeau » Tue Mar 29, 2011 3:28 pm

I'm admitted into Loyola.
No Scholarship

25k Scholarship at Pepperdine.

Is there that much of a difference of prospective law school opportunity if I chose Pepperdine because of the scholly?

Any thoughts?

Visit both. They are totalllly different. You could like one and hate the other.

I don't know if location is a big deal for you, but Malibu vs. downtown LA = huge difference. The Pepperdine campus is gorgeous, but also a far drive from pretty much everything. Loyola's in an industrial-looking area, but it's a convenient location. Also, Pepperdine is a religious university, though I don't know how much that would affect the law school.

As a native Angeleno, I know people who have attended and graduated from both schools. Alumni from both schools often show up at large LA based firms, or in local elections, etc.
