I didn't get a chance to go to the ASD, but I visited the campus, got a tour, and sat in on two classes last Wednesday. I was very impressed. Here are some of my thoughts, and why I'm pretty sure I'm going to Miami this fall:
-The professors were engaging and thought-provoking. I sat in on two 1L classes, sub crim with Barnes and con law with Casebeer. Loved them both.
-While the campus is not the most beautiful I have seen (it's rather bland actually), the "Bricks" really does seem like a good area to rest between classes and socialize. By no means did it seem overcrowded anytime during the day.
-I don't know if anyone got the chance to go outside the law campus, but it's a stone's throw away from all the undergrad amenities.
-People looked generally happy to be there, and everyone was extremely helpful and nice. It really just felt right.
As far as the library goes, I must admit it is not impressive. I hear most law students walk to the undergrad library to study... I didn't get the chance to visit it, but I hear it's great.
