Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

The J. Reuben Clark Law School is competitive and fairly affordable in comparison to other law schools. There is not much diversity in the school and its a small community.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

BYU is not the highest rated civil engineering program but the professors for water resources own the world's premier water resources modeling company Aquaveo. That is highly competitive and should look good on anybody's resume who want to pursue modeling.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2010

For the first time in my education I felt that all the material I was learning was valuable to my theoretical growth and practical knowledge as well. I was challenged as I never had been before, but the support and encouragement coupled with the organization of the program were sufficient for my completion of the program. I would recommend the Teacher Education program to any teacher seeking to improve their overall pedagogical competency.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

Great faculty and staff, I felt like they were really knowledgeable, but still approachable. Their tuition is amazing for the great education you receive. I loved the outdoors in Utah (when I had time to go), you can drive 15-30 minutes from Provo and take some great hikes.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

The biggest pro of going to BYU Law is the extremely low cost tuition rate, compared to most other law schools. This means less debt and more freedom to choose the type of career to pursue. Another pro is the large network of BYU Law alumni spread out across the country, so that a student isn't stuck in Utah if they wish to work elsewhere. A big con is having to live through the outrageously cold Utah winters, but if you like a lot of snow, it could be a pro. Another con is that although there is a good network of BYU attorneys outside of Utah, most law firms that come to campus to recruit students are Utah-based. Thus, if you are seeking to practice in another state, you're pretty much on your own to network and make employment connections.
