on a side note, a friend from WUSL said the best professor she has ever had was from SLU law....haha
I was at SLU one day, and not at an admitted day, so it probably was a bad decision on my part not to stay another day to explore the school more. I thought the campus was great, the lounge and library at SLU was great and the big window sitting over the lawns and fountains was a beautiful rest in a day. Cheap housing is all around and you get tons included,some fireplaces, washer/dryer etc all for a great great price.
I need more about the school itself though so anything you can tell me in detail would be great...or I will have to call them again.... ..about the health institute and actually what they really do and how that helps a law student? where the jobs are after graduating from there?
And, my concern is, if I chose to want to practice in Boston say, how will chosing SLU help me ...or would it be better to go to a law school in Boston now even though its lower on the rankings?
so send me anything you can think of
The career Services office representative talked about that very subject..trying to get a job out of region.She said honestly that SLU places the best within the Law school's region.she said that if a person wanted to practice on the East Coast that they should go to the East Coast School.As for the East coast school being ranked lower it depends on how much..i mean, at least the people in Boston would know a decent amount about the school you graduated from if you decided to go to school in the Boston area. People who go to SLU are looking to stay in St. Louis..or at least work there for a while until the resume, experience and reputation grows..so you have to keep that in mind. As for the Health Law program, They place all over the East..even D.C. But that program is the exception since the program is ranked #1 in the Nation.I know that if you decide to go into health law you can get a dual degree a J.D. with a Masters in Public Health.
