Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Love it here. Doesn't seem to be as competitive as other schools as students are very friendly and helpful to each other.

I believe that the lack of diversity at the University of San Diego is critical. It is known that the university is a private, religiously-affiliated school, but the lack of diversity that ensues is only detrimental to the faculty and student body. Diversity in backgrounds and ideas fosters new and innovative solutions to the problems in society. On the other hand, the faculty and staff at USD are professional and career-oriented, and are very helpful to students in terms of classroom help and help networking.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

While law school is extremely difficult, USD has proven to be a great place to study. Although the overall grade reflects the law school experience in general, USD has provided me with an excellent legal education. The pros are the professors and the atmosphere, while the cons are the lack of staff to student outreach. For the amount we pay in tuition, I believe there should be more of an effort to ensure that students have jobs and are a positive position for success.

There are only two cons: (1)cost of room and board (2) traffic in the surrounding area. Both cons make the University of San Diego School of Law still a wonderful school. There is no campus in the world that is more beautiful. I am proud to attend the University of San Diego School of Law.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program is the emerging of the Health and Law combined is one of its kind. The learning experience is outstanding in that I am receiving evidence based information on the changes to Health care in America and changes in law and policy. As a registered nurse, I am learning why quality of care is important to Americans. Also the changes that America is going through with the ACA. Some of the information I am taking back and sharing it with my colleagues, which is making a difference in patient care. The cons is that the degree is on campus and living in Corona Ca, working 40 hours, and raising a family makes it very tiring. A hybrid access would facilitate and decrease commuting time and stress. However, the learning experience and wealth of knowledge that I am receiving is well worth the commute.

San Diego provides a great education in one of the busiest cities in California, thus providing a great amount of opportunities. The small number of students helps one to learn who their classmates are. Alumni base isn't as large as one would hope however.

USD has a wonderful law school! The only downside is the expense for such a great education!

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

While the University of San Diego School of Law offers a robust and prestigious law program, I have had to seek out career and internship opportunities mostly on my own. The San Diego area can't be beat for an active social life, but you do need money to participate. USD Law is extremely un-diverse, and while the law faculty is more progressive, the general school administration is not supportive of diversity programming.
