The quality of life and social aspects of this program are terrific, however the student body could be much more diverse.

Degree: Law

There are lots of people who really thrive in the hyper jock "work hard, play hard" culture; the advantage of that team mentality, though, pays off it comes to networking with alumni. Worst features=compared with my liberal arts undergrad it's super-aggressively competitive and the workload is very heavy; the campus is all woods, so close parking is often not possible and it doesn't feel very safe; public transit isn't great and parking services could do more to encourage carpools (if I need to ride separately from my carpool it's $4/day penalty, which is actually more than if I bought my own parking pass--but then the rest of my carpool would be penalized if I got my own pass--the passes for law-adjacent lots sell out instantly). Which brings me to the most annoying part--the costs/fees keep adding up from every direction and are going up insanely fast. Best features=faculty accessibility, quality of network with many great networking events; off campus there's a very affordable, interesting region with a lot of opportunities to enjoy local art, culture, community involvement in quirky, walkable neighborhoods. I also think career services does a really good job.

Still a young program, but it is doing a great job of leveraging the Duke Law name and brand. Alumni do a lot to support each other, and help new classes get jobs. Good program.

Rigorous workload, but amazing and accessible professors, helpful and well-placed alumni, and competition is related only to curves
