In reading a lot of the posts on LSD about Iowa, I've found that the overwhelming majority of users have nothing positive to say about their program. I'm beginning to wonder whether its because it is a T-25 school that accepts a lower median LSAT score than other schools, or if it has to do more with academic quality issues during law school and post-graduation.
Why does U Iowa College of Law have such a bad rep? Before joining LSD, I heard so many great things about the school. More specifically, I've heard that the legal writing program is one of the top 10 in the country. I also remember Iowa being ranked in the top 10 for international law last year on USNEWS( I could be mistaken).
What do you guys think? What are your attitudes towards Iowa? Overrated? Underrated?
I think some people have a negative attitude to Iowa because its numbers are so low in comparision to where it is ranked.
As for the merits of the school, the faculty is widely regarded as excellent.
