I was admitted to Hofstra.  Does anyone have any personal experience with this school or any impressions of it?

I decided not to apply there because I looked at their website and it seems...a little too "progressive" for me, let's just keep it at that.

Check out jdunderground, they have some views on it.

I applied in December, and got my letter a few days ago (Monday I think).  What about it do you like specifically?  I liked the fact that it claims to be an institution that uses experiential teaching -- hands on, but for some reason the school gets trashed by a lot of people so I am just curious.

there are so many internships and externships available, and thats really appealing to me. plus, i've spoken to several attorneys and they speak quite highly of the school, which is always a plus...

Why do you think that a lot of people consider it a toilet school?

no clue to be honest. granted i haven't heard back from the school yet, but i definitely see it as a viable option for me (acceptance pending, that is...) i think it's a good school if you have some sort of an idea of the direction of law you wish to pursue. how long after you went complete did you hear back, if you don't mind me asking?
