Yeah, I don't know about Chapman. I'm from the West Valley so I can live at home for free if I get into LA schools, but I'm also considering University of Houston. Good luck!

just curious if you've checked out the new 2008 rankings...some of the schools have changed quite a bit! then again, rankings are SO arbitrary after a certain point. it's more about where you feel you fit in. :) good luck with everything and your legal future!

Southwestern?

Southwestern is not at all in Beverly Hills, it is near downtown Los Angeles if anything.
