Anyway, I visited Minneapolis this past weekend and I must say I was impressed with the city. The three schools I visited were all impressive in their own way. I spent all day Friday at the University of Minnesota where I chatted with the admissions folks, sat in a criminal law class, and had lunch with a 2L and a 3L. I spend Saturday morning at William Mitchell. Even though they lacked the personal touch of "the U" it had it's own merits. Since there was nothing scheduled at Hamline, I was walked through the school by a buddy of mine who is working on a PhD at the school. The number one complaint I hear about Minneapolis is the cold; I don't mind the cold, as I am from upper michigan.
Overall, despite the offer of scholarship money for Hamline my wife and I decided that IF we decide to move to Minneapolis I would attend "the U". If anyone has specific questions about my visit feel free to email me: Army2Law@gmail.com
