Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Overall a good school, faculty are experts and professionals in the field, many of whom are currently practicing which helps to strengthen the application of what they teach. Reasonable workload and access to learning experiences and workshops. Great at recruiting speakers and providing opportunities to get involved in the community. However, the program promotes diversity yet it is greatly lacking in the student population.

The Portland area is a great place to go to school and live in. The graduate school is not as wonderful as they made it out to be when I was a prospective and incoming student. There is little to no help in career planning. Professors are either too busy and taking on too much and can't give their classes their full attention or some are too new and have never taught before and we are the guinea pigs. There are a few good professors who are also therapists in the community and can give practical advice.

Great school and great area. A little isolating, but if you like trees it's the place to be.

Lewis and Clark's Counseling Grad program is expensive due to it being a private school; however, the faculty support you and you never get an automated response when you call. The teachers are impressively chosen and are the best in their field. The texts required are also chosen with care and are worth reading. Lastly, this school has a sterling reputation in the community, post-graduation, and you will be proud to hand your resume to any potential job site with Lewis and Clark as your academic background in training.

Pro - L&C is an awesome law school. The faculty, many of who write the text books you read or who are leaders in their fields, are always willing to meet with you and help you succeed. Also the staff and students are very friendly and supportive. Con - It can get cliquey and that sucks, especially for people coming from out of state. It also seem that sometimes the high ups support is focused on the top 15%, leaving the rest of us to fend for ourselves. Overall though a great school and well worth every penny just to sit and talk to some of the professors. Seriously. They are that great.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

I have completed one year at Lewis & Clark Law School and enjoyed my experience so far. Portland is a great city and has a low cost-of-living compared to other cities in coastal states (my friend from Oklahoma has a higher cost-of-living than she was used to), plus no sales tax. Portland has a great mix of people, but is not ethnically or racially diverse, and the school is not a beacon of diversity, either, though they do make an effort. The professors here are very knowledgeable and accessible; most of mine have extensive practical experience which I am learning is not the norm at a lot of schools. Like presumably any law school, there is a lot of work involved. Competition inherently exists since we are all ranked relative to each other (again, the norm at law schools), but it seems healthy and classmates are helpful (no resource-hiding, or false-information-giving). Lewis & Clark has a very friendly "vibe" as does Portland/Oregon (I was a little taken aback when the city bus driver told me to have a good day as I was exiting from a rear door). Great environmental law program and cutting edge animal law program. Many firms from outside the state recruit at Lewis & Clark for students interested in environmental law (less so for other fields but career services is helpful at reaching firms/agencies in your target market). There is also a great legal writing program which is difficult to appreciate until you are in law school or are otherwise aware that your success at writing in undergrad does not automatically transfer to success in legal writing. The job numbers for graduates have not been good, which is what the popular rankings reflect. I have found career services to be very helpful, but cannot yet speak to their assistance with post-school job hunting. The numbers are improving, though, and the school is bringing in more people in career services to increase their already stellar outreach efforts. I am happy with my choice to attend Lewis & Clark and would do so again!

It is an incredible school with a non-competitive law school atmosphere. The professors are intelligent and considerate. The only problem for me is affordability. It is very expensive and there are little to no scholarship opportunities offered for non-minority students.

Great program. Puts out some of the best counselors in Oregon. Only drawback is a lack of advisory support from faculty.

The professors at Lewis and Clark College have a true passion in teaching and helping the students not only the material in class, but also life. Students are taught material that will be useful in future careers and life and encourages feedback on classes. The campus is in the beautiful suburbs of Portland and feels like a natural escape from reality.

Our school is awesome mainly because of the great professors. Many of them write the textbooks that you use and all of them are out there in the community making a difference. There is not one professor I've had that is just there to teach.
