I would say St. Thomas.  An up and coming school.  It is well respected by lawyers in the twin cities area.

Choosing the Right Law School / FCSL vs. Barry

Just wondering any thoughts on these two schools.  Thanks!


I know that most will not be happy with the schools in this post.  But if you don't like it just don't post.

Sorry Sorry.

I meant transfer after the first year to a different school. 

So does that mean many people do not transfer after their first year?

Any specific reasons regarding FC?  I don't question your opinion, just wondering the reasoning.  Thanks!

T3 = William Mitchell

Choosing the Right Law School / Part-time versus Full Time

I currently heard from a school that put me on a waitlist that I was admitted into their part-time program.  Right now I am admitted at two Tier 4 schools, and this school is a Tier 3.  After the first year I am able to become fulltime or stay part-time.  Is this a risk, or should I see it as a great opportunity?

Also, if I wanted to transfer after the first year would a part-time program make it more difficult?  Anyone with any experience or advice please post.  Thanks!

Incoming 1Ls / Suffolk - Financial Aid Email
« on: February 22, 2008, 09:42:40 AM »
I just got an email from Suffolk regarding financial aid.  I have not heard a decision from Suffolk, so did this email go out to everyone?

I just applied to FIU and I am very excited to learn more about the school- anything you have to offer is great.  I can only gather info from their website and don't know much about it since I am from the midwest.  I was wondering what your numbers were to get a hold- you can message me if you want.  Just to see if I will be held as well, you don't have to but it may give me piece of mind. 

I am in the same situation with deposits and waitlists.  What would you exactly say that isn't too pushy to a school when talking about deposits and waiting?

I have only heard positive things about Hamline around the Cities.  Sure people on this board will knock it because it is a 4th tier school, but they are usually so high off their own ego that they don't know any better.

I know many lawyers from Hamline and they all hold top positions where they work.  Whether it is a medium sized law firm or a national bank.
