Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2018

With an education in foreign languages and cultures, history, finance, and law, Brigham Young University (BYU) has enabled me to make a significant impact in the world. The opportunity I had to live for two years as a service volunteer in eastern-Europe, and then intern for a US company in Warsaw, Poland, was provided me because of my education at BYU. My current studies in the MBA and Law programs at BYU are preparing me to fulfill my dream of affecting significant change for people of the world who have less than I do. I will use my degree to raise and invest capital to facilitate entrepreneurship that produces solutions to social, cultural, and environmental issues (social entrepreneurship). BYU has been the perfect place for me to acquire the tools necessary to do this because of its focus and success in areas of social entrepreneurship (BYU Ballard Center for Economic Self Reliance), Venture Capital (byucougarcapital.org), and because its Center for Foreign Language Studies has courses in more languages than most universities in the US (92). I have loved my experience at BYU and would highly recommend it to others.

BYU is an excellent and affordable for students looking to obtain a graduate degree. The education is Ivy league comparable and the price is substantially more affordable. The professional counseling programs are great. The religious and moral environment is enjoyable and refreshing, You really feel like it is place for learning and growth. The communication with the professors is very effective and they provide all the support you need.

Brigham Young University is a great place to pursue a legal education. The actual education is top-notch, and the cost is minimal in comparison to other law schools. The BYU network has connections all over the globe and is an amazing asset to tap into.

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: 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.

Graduation Year: 2013

BYU is the best bang for your buck. I am struggling to find a job in this tough legal market, but I am glad that I don't have debt looming over my head like I would had I gone to the east coast for school. The teachers are very willing to help, and I have had few unrewarding classes. I absolutely love my fellow peers, even when they don't agree with me. Especially when they don't agree with me.

I really had a great experience at BYU and I am grateful for it. I am amazed at how low they are able to keep their tuition low and yet still offer quality in education. As someone who is interested in working in the public sector, I am very grateful for that.
