i don't know what i want to do after law school, i want options. i'd like the option of a nice firm job, but also the flexibility of low debt.

I actually practice law in Orange County and Los Angeles, and have met alums from most of the law schools in Southern CA, and some from Northern CA. Since I mainly do family and immigration, I mostly deal with lawyers from Chapman, Loyola, Southwestern, Whittier, Western. Brightest attorneys I've met? Definetly from Loyola and Chapman. Worst? Western. Since I'm fairly new to the practice of law, I like to render advice about law schools in Southern CA.[/quote]
where did you go to school, if you don't mind saying?
