    Great faculty, great opportunities such as externships or dual degree programs. The legal community in Saint Louis is very regional. Some firms will not even interview qualified candidates if they are not from Saint Louis or have previous experience in Saint Louis on their resumes. Other than that, I have really enjoyed my time here. The area around the school is very safe and affordable. The dangerous areas in Saint Louis are far from the school.

    Overall I thought it was a great value. There were a few professors who I did not think were the best at teaching, but that's true of any unniversity. The student body was diverse and extremely smart!

    With its generous financial aid policy, Wash U is one of the best values in legal education. The faculty is one of the best respected faculties in the business and has some real advocates for reform in legal education. (e.g., Prof. Tamanaha). St. Louis is one of the most affordable cities in the developed words. It still has everything you might want (except Zara or IKEA, for some reason...) Teachers are accessible if you reach out to them and seem universally happy to befriend students and help them with their career searches. Socially, the school is wonderful. Wash U is competitive, but not cutthroat. I have never had someone refuse to share their notes for a class. The students have a communitarian, we're-all-in-this-together kind of approach. We don't go out of our way to compare grades and tend to shun those people who enjoy bragging about them. There are at least two SBA-sponsored social events a week that support this culture. The three drawbacks I can think of are di...
