If you really want to go to law school you can just get loans- government loans and grad plus loans to pay for it. Of course you have to pay it back but if it is what you want to do then do it.

The ASD is what hooked me to the school. They did a great job of selling me on SU. In addition, the students are no more cutthroat than any other school I would imagine. You will always have the few snobby types but other than that I did not see it as an issue. Its a great school and I have found that it is looked pretty well here on the west coast. Probably because of the basketball program but who cares. It is expensive but the classrooms are a nice as any other school and some of the programs are well worth it. The clinics, the externships and the certificate programs are great.
Miami is really the best tax llm program?? huh.. surprising! I know Villanova has a great program, and the tax professors here are great! I took into to tax here and did well. My professor was hilarious!
Yes miami is ranked 5th

I was in the middle of the class but my experience got me job interviews and a job offer at the DAs office in CA.
The joint MPA is a great way to go. The MPA is Tops in the country and those who did the joint degree really thought it was worth it...I dont know the specifics sorry.
As far as the dean....this may not be a big deal to some but it sure was to me. At our commencement she did not dress professionally, didnt bother to prepare a speech, leaned on the lecturn just talking and mixing up names...very unprofessional. Many people do not like her. With that said I dont know what the non student population thinks of her.

I just wanted to point out a few things regarding the school. First, Dean Arterian (sp) is an absolute joke. She is both unprofessional and an embarrassment to the school.
Other than that, and the cold winters (I am from CA) I got everything I wanted out of the school. I came in with no prior experience of any kind and I came out with a year of family law experience, 1 semester of criminal defense experience and a semester of DA experience. All under a practicing order so I can appear in court and be a primary case handler. Some when the just hit the books route while other went the practical experience route..both can be done quite successfully. I hope this information is helpful. I graduated in May 08.
