Do you regret choosing scu?
I would have to say yes, I do regret attending SCU. Not solely because of the employment statistics. I knew I wasn't going to a T-14 and never expected to be handed a job. But SCU has just been a nightmare. Every fall the school has been late disbursing loan refunds, which has placed me in financial binds. The staff that handle financial aid and administrative issues are simply atrocious. I had comically horrendous professors for three of my doctrinal courses 1L. Despite all of the school's self-proclaimed accolades about being one of the most diverse law schools in the country, the student body is woefully homogenous. The Law Career services department is a joke. The law library and the law school buildings are sad, low-tech relics of the 70's, despite the school being marketed at the high-tech law school of Silicon Valley. COL in Santa Clara/San Jose is insane. That being said, I have networked, done well in classes, participated in moot court, etc., and have tried to make the most of my time at SCU. But I truly feel like I'm just a number to the school. Like once they got my money, I no longer mattered. If I had to redo everything, I would have sat out and retaken the LSAT and attempted to go to a better school. SCU is pretty on the outside and rotten on the inside.
But, above all, please don't let any part of your decision whether or not to attend SCU be based on employment statistics. They are just false. I know numerous people who graduated my 1L year who are STILL unemployed. Most of the 3L's I know who are graduating this year have no jobs lined up. So unless you have advanced post-grad degrees in a hard science and are using them to pursue IP, you will not be making 160K, if you ca get a job at all.
I'm not saying SCU is the most horrible school, because I am sure most TTT are pretty similar. Just make sure you know what you are getting into before you commit.
