Arkansas - Little Rock / Re: Little Rock
« on: March 04, 2009, 12:56:10 PM »
Yes. Thank you.  I have been accepted to both law schools in Arkansas, but have received a better scholarship from UALR.  From my own research on the web (not having visited either school yet), I think that I would prefer Fayetteville over Little Rock and UA seems to have a little bit better reputation than UALR.  Would you say that UA is more reputable than UALR?

Thanks for the advice 'stole your nose.' I am not betting on being in the top 5 percent - that is just a goal.  But  betting on being in the top third is precisely what I am doing.  You may think this is risky, but I have a lot of confidence in myself.  It's a gamble, but I think it will be one that pays off.  BTW, what school do you go to?

My goal is to be in the top 5 percent of my class, so if I fail to stay in the top third I would view it as an abject failure.  I do not think that Roger Williams University is worth 32k/yr., so if I do lose my scholarship, I would drop out.  I do not anticipate this happening, however.

I have to stay in the top third of the class to maintain my scholarship.  While I do not think it will be easy, I have confidence that if I put forth the effort, I will be able to do so.  If I cannot stay in the top third of my class, chances are that I would not have what it takes to make it as an attorney anyway.  It is a valid point of concern, however.

Arkansas - Little Rock / Little Rock

Does anyone have any thoughts about Little Rock?  Is it nice or a little bit ghetto?  Would it be a nice place to settle down and raise a family?

Thank you very much for taking the time to reply to my question.  The information you provided is very helpful.  My UGPA/LSAT is not high enough to get into a top 25. (3.2;161)  I have applied to Arizona(pending review) and been accepted to the University of the Pacific McGeorge.  It would cost 22k/yr.to go to McGeorge and if I get into Arizona it would cost around 30k because I would not get a scholarship and pay out of state tuition.  These are the more reputable schools to which I was referring.

It is very reassuring that you know RWU grads who got jobs.  Bristol looks like a great town and the faculty come from a variety of Ivy League/T1 schools. My main concern is that I wouldn't be able to gain employment because, as you stated, RI and MA are flooded with attornies.  I will probably attend RWU because I do want to keep the debt load down. Thanks again ksully.

How are the job prospects for a UALR law school graduate?

Roger Williams / full tuition scholarship to RWU

I have received a full-tuition merit scholarship to RWU.  I am seriously entertaining the idea of attending this fall, but have read some things online that have me worried.  I noticed that most of these posts are a couple of years old.  Is anyone currently attending RWU that can give me some advice about the school and some information concerning job prospects for RWU graduates.  It seems that in the past couple of years the bar passage/employment rates have gone up. I cannot decide whether I should take the free ride to RWU or fork over the big bucks to attend a more reputable school.  Any help would be appreciated.
