Here's some insight from a 1L at St. Mary's right now.

1.  I'm in section A, most of the professors are great, well educated, and very well respected
2.  The career services department which handles internships is ABYSMAL!  They pretty much tell 1L's an internship isn't going to happen which is such BS because it doesn't take much foot-work to find one.  And on-campus interviews for 1L's are few and far between. 
3.  The curve was moved up this year from a C+ to a B- for first years.
4.  I think I am getting a good education but it feels, at times, like the administration is less than professional in certain aspects of how the school is run. 

I knew the rep before going and I have to say it may been deserved at one time but I think it is getting better.

And one important note -- if you want to live and work in San Antonio you could do a lot worse than St. Mary's.

having read many of her decisions, i think she's a fair judge who follows the could argue she followed the law in Ricci...

she's obviously extremely nervous, her fluttering eye lids are driving me crazy...but she knows the law and i have no problems with her being on the bench...

if this is the best the republicans can come up with, i think she'll be a fine SCOTUS judge...she's no Harriet Myers though ::)
