thanks for the weather info as well.
So I spent the last 3 days in Dayton, OH., visiting the city and school. The University is awesome, and you can tell it has the respect of the community. The law building is amazing, brand new, self contained and overall it is top knotch. The almuni who where there to assist us and answer our questions where also very good. They where as honest as possible in that setting and they did a great job of showing us the great things UD has to offer. The top two things I took away from it was the school is dedicated to legal writting and the mandatory externship is HUGE. The school actually hires staff to assist in placing students in their top externship choices. The school is centrally located so you can't go wrong with living either north/south/east/or west Dayton also has more churches, catholic that is, than any other city outside of Rome imo.
Dayton is a dieing city. The locals call it shrinking but I call it dieing. There are more abandoned buildings than functional buildings. A relestate agent basically told me that every year the city will sell forclosed houses for a dollar a piece in the hopes that someone with money will fix it up. The city also presents poorly in terms of security as well, it is not a small place by any means and you can tell that there is a need for additional police force, especially in downtown. People will congrate around busstops and spend all day there. You can see the same ppl at 10pm at nite that you saw at 8am that same day...kinda sad. With all that being said the area around the school is great and feels safe, as do some of the smaller historic areas.
I'm glad i visisted, I had a great time and the people are amazing. Very nice people in general. I liked the school more than NESL and based on what everyone has said and shown me I believe it places well outside of Dayton. It has the respect of the community like I mentioned earlier and its alumni practice all over the U.S. which is great when it comes to looking for work because the school puts you in contact with them if need be.
