Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

There are a lot of good things about Minnesota. The area immediately around the law school is a bit dead, but transportation is easy to get downtown or to a place with a little more life. If you want something super diverse it isn't going to be Minnesota.

Great teachers + great peers. The atmosphere is excellent and the competition between students is friendly, not cutthroat. Not a big career network outside of the Midwest. The building is dreary because all the classrooms are essentially in the basement.

Minneapolis is a great city to live in and the students and faculty at the Law School are very collegial and helpful. There are plenty of student organizations and outside organizations in the Twin Cities to get involved in and the Law School offers courses in an extremely wide variety of areas. Career Center is what you make of it.

I really enjoy the law program at the University. The program is challenging and certainly pushes individuals to further master their understanding of the law.

While the law program is not the best, I am certainly getting my money's worth and know I have a better education than most law schools.

Minneapolis is a great city, so the school gets lots of points for that. Depending what you want to do, the career center and network are limited. Some faculty are amazing and accessible and some aren't. Anyone who is looking at the social life rating of law schools should not apply to law school.

 Great faculty (interesting classes, accessible outside of class, etc.), great location, generous financial aid.  Little guidance from the career center, "Law in Practice" program needs a serious overhaul.

The U of M Law School is a great program for pursuing independent opportunities with faculty support.

Love the school. It isn't super competitive. Everyone is nice and supportive. The only down side is if you want to get a job out of state, it is really difficult unless you have amazing grades.
