Is there anything that stands out about Loyola compared to other SoCal law schools?

I'm primarily trying to differentiate between San Diego and Loyola. It is hard to do considering placement rates and cost of loving (after scholarships) are almost identical. It seems like it comes down to whether a person wants to practice in SD or LA, but I have no preference. I think I understand the pros and cons of living in each city and it comes out to a push for me.

One thing I am curious about is the culture of the student bodies. It seems like Loyola is a little bit more diverse (demographically and ideologically) and San Diego has a bigger religious/right presence. But I could be totally off-base on that.

Thanks for your time!


I was deciding between a school of similar stature to LLS, and for me the deciding factor was that the bar passage and employment rate at LLS was higher than the other school. As far as what stands out, LLS has a huge alumni network, being the largest law school in CA. There are a lot of interesting student organizations, especially public interest ones. There are lots of interesting panels, where attorneys come to campus. The Loyola innocence project does really important work, idk what other schools have something like that.

The student body is definitely very diverse, as far as students' background. Not sure about ideology, it seems the majority are liberal, this being L.A. I'm not religious, and the school is not obnoxious about its Catholic-ness.

What is your least favorite thing about Loyola and what is your favorite thing?

Hey Y'all
Loyola is my top choice. I went complete 1/28/2018 and have not heard anything since :(
One of my recommenders is a LLS alum, well known in the school.
I hope to hear something soon :(

I’m sure you’ll hear something! Did you write a Why Loyola essay?

On the same boat :(
I read on Reddit that LLS is sending decisions via snail-mail even though the status checker has not been updated from "complete"

I have been accepted to UC Hastings, but really want to hear from Loyola by the time of my first seat deposit (early April). I applied February 1, complete early March, anyone know how long it takes?

Also I'm a legacy, does anyone know if that does anything?

Got my acceptance email today. No scholarship/deadline info in it.

I think they have my home address on file, not my college address, so no idea if/when I'll get a physical acceptance packet.

Still, I had almost given up hope for this cycle but I got it, and LLS was my top choice with the stats I had. Still I'm VERY excited.

Anyone know if there is a facebook group for admitted students or a housing group?

Hey! I'm in the same boat. Got into UC Hastings and they want a deposit on 4/20, but I haven't heard from Loyola yet.

Did you end up hearing from them?

Have you heard back from Loyola? I am hoping to review some sort of news soon, considering the Hastings deposit is due next week.

When is the latest that I can expect a decision from Loyola? On the Status Checker, it just says complete ... I applied late in the cycle since I took the Feb. LSAT, but I was hoping to hear by the end of this month?

Hey! Congrats! I was wondering and if you don't mind the question, did you get any scholarships?

Not yet! But I will definitely let you guys know as soon as I hear from them. They didn’t even give me a deposit deadline date yet ^^;;
