2011VERIFIED STUDENT
Academics

Generally, the classes are very good. They emphasize more theory than practical study, traditionally follow the Socratic method, and class sizes vary. The curve obviously creates a level of competitiveness, but all the students seem to be friendly with one another, and I haven't heard of any unusually unfriendly, ultra-competitive incidents between students.

Quality of Life

It is a very expensive place to live, but so is most of the rest of southern California. The campus and facilities are all new and well-maintained, and appear to be superior to many of the more prestigious law schools I have visited. Crime is very low, and community relations with the law school and its students is generally good. Overall, most of the students seem very happy to be attending school here.

Admissions

The process is the same as most other institutions; application through LSAC, no additional essays besides the personal statement, an LSAT score is required (obviously), etc. Students are considered for financial aid automatically upon application--there is not an additional financial aid/scholarship application.
