Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The Urban Education program at LMU is full of professors who understand that teaching full-time while taking classes is tough. Therefore, they work with each student to ensure that the content in the class is applicable to what is being done inside of our classrooms. Many of the things I learned in class could be applied the very next day. I felt supported and encouraged to try new things. I was, however, not impressed with LMU's Financial Aid office as they were not good at communicating nor did they seem interested in helping me ensure that I was doing things correctly. In my last semester, I did not receive aid because I was given incorrect information.

The program and the advisors are very much friendly and helpful. The time allows you to have a day time job and that is a pro. One of the only cons, is the cost, and that is something that they help with, by offering scholarships.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Cons: School is ridiculously expensive. Career services is helpful, but a list of helpful tips only gets you so far. Networking events on campus would be helpful. Pros: Being in Los Angeles offers a lot of opportunity. Library area that is open for 24 hours is convenient.

It's a great school in a great area but at the beginning they give little support unless you bug them.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Loyola Law School has challenged in ways that I never imagined possible. Of course coming into law school I knew that workload and difficulties of the classes would be high but I never imagined to be pushed to my limits as I was during my first year. I was fortunate enough to have some great professors as compared to my other colleagues in different sections. Most notably my Property and Torts Professors stand out because of their commitment to teach us to "think like lawyers" which is what a lot of professor forget to do. One of my only problems with Loyola has to be the GPA cutoff for first years, if you fall below a 2.22 then you are kicked out of the program. I think this is too harsh considering that Loyola has dropped in rankings this past year and other surrounding law schools have the GPA cut off at below 2.0.

The LMU staff were incredibly supportive and responsive throughout my time as a graduate student. The TFA-LMU partnership is specifically designed to support Teach for America corps members throughout the credentialing process. To this end, the program does a solid job of providing students with basic teaching skills, as well as access to valuable resources. However, the quality of the courses is spotty; some classes seemed sloppily put-together, with little emphasis on guiding students to meaningfully learn about content.
