This makes the degree almost worthless for 45% of the students there.
Then if you take into considereation that more than 30% of students do not graduate your odds of practicing law right out of Whittier is at 39%. I would reconsider Whittier. At least at southwestern your odds would be above 60%.
So is Whittier Law a difficult school to excel in? Aside from it not being a top school, what about it makes it harder than Southwestern? Is it the grading?
