    It has a great alumni network and career support system. It also has very dedicated professors who are genuinely interested in their students' progress.

    Vanderbilt has a great faculty and social environment. Could use work on career support (especially clerkship stuff). Vanderbilt is also relatively intolerant of minority religious viewpoints.

    Vanderbilt Law can be classified as collegial overall. It fosters a very comfortable yet sufficiently challenging learning environment. It is definitely not one of the "cut-throat" law schools. However, the diversity of the student body population can be enhanced.
