For those who work full time and need to go to school part time, I would like to share my law school orientation experience. I am currently enrolled in the part time program at New England School of Law. I never imagined that I would have such a great experience at a 4th tier school! My class is composed of 110 students, most of which are considering IP Law. For a 4th tier school, I will say that the students have their ducks in a row! Most students that I have met are older and have science or engineering degrees. They also have many years experience in their current medical or pharmaceutical fields. Most IP students plan on working at the company they are currently employed within a legal capacity. They are not relying on a crappy associate postion after they graduate. These people are very smart and FRIENDLY! The atmosphere at New England is non-intimidating and cordial. Not at all what I expected. Also, the teachers are NICE! They are willing to make concessions for those who have career and family obligations. I never thought that I would consider myself priviledged to attend a 4th tier school. However, I would not trade my 4th tier experience for all the tea in China. I hope this post helps those considering New England School of Law. After all, if you are the next inventor of a Chia Pet or Clapper, you can get free legal advice from your colleagues! Just Kidding!!!!!
