For business school, in terms of ranking, UCLA is on top, then USC, then UCI.

Decent law schools in the area are Southwestern, Loyola and Pepperdine.

Some even have JD/MBA programs.

USC shouldn't run you more than 40-50 grand a year. I know successful attorneys that graduated from little more than a mail order school to Harvard and the like. Sure, the big name schools will get you a job in a big firm at a nice salary, but it's up to you after that.

If you've got the hustle, you can graduate from a no-name and have a great law career. Lots of schools in LA and Orange County. Most are in the state school system and are laying off instructors. or at least not filling the position when they retire. Fees are way up.

Think CA, but think out of state too.

If you are planning to go to law school, I would strongly consider minoring/double majoring in Philosophy. It will help you out a lot.

I am in the computer/intel field. It's not something that I would like to continue doing or start a business doing. Are you saying that it is inconcievable the a soldier would have the depth to study philosophy? Is it also hard for you to see an Ex-Soldier become a lawyer?

Not at all I was a soldier myself,but Philosophy will not land you a job apart from teaching then you will need at least a PhD to pay the bills.
What has Philosophy got to do with Law? Apart from all the c##P about Ethics.
Law is a very long and hard road and extremely boring.
But its your life!

Regarding costs, you won't be coming to California with California residency. Therefore you will have to pay out of state tuition for all of the state schools, (UCLA, UCI, UCR, CSLB, CSNR, etc). Does the new GI bill cover tuition regardless of the cost and then give you an additional $1800/month?

It wasn't I that said that philosophy would help out with the Law profession. Yes the new GI Bill caps per year at the maximum amount charged by a university in the state.
